Major irritation with the larger puzzle size vs screen size

Summary: The easy puzzles (small size) are too easy...but then you move up to the more challenging puzzles. Yes, challenging they sure are, BUT with the zoom size and the numbers along the sides, return to normal size with the tiny numbers to get the "big picture" in order to figure the puzzle out takes more time AND irritation than I am willing to give for a puzzle game.
Summary: I've been doing this type of puzzle for at least 14 years so when I heard they were going to have this for the DS, I ordered it. I enjoyed starting it out but was disappointed right away because this is basically a one player game. Unless you want to redo somebody else's puzzles, or have them poking into yours, you need more than one cartridge.
Summary: I enjoyed this game when it first arrived. A friend had said it was enjoyable and I got a taste for it after playing May's Mysteries. I raced enthusiastically through the easier levels but found the harder ones less relaxing so gave up on the game when Lost Treasures of Alexandria arrived. I must go back and try again!
A solid introduction to picross puzzles for beginners

Excerpt: I was very excited to get hold of this DS title as I had become quickly addicted to the picross/nonogram/griddlers concept. Having a neat, smudge free method of getting my fix was seemed very attractive to me. The game accomodates those starting from scratch with some simple puzzles which also allow you a chance to become accustomed to the input method but I found even jumping straight in to the higher level games there was still nothing anywhere near as challenging as...
Great fun, but gets a bit frustrating on bigger ones

Summary: I really enjoyed this at the start & even though the pictures revealed are very basic, it was quite addictive. Once I got my head round what to do, I redid some of them to see if I could improve my time. However, after a while I traded it in to get another game. Once the puzzles get to a certain size, I just found it hard to keep track of & found it was hard on my eyes. You can't scan a whole row or column at the same time, other than in the version on the top screen.
Summary: I love the idea behind picross and played an online version before purchasing this to see if i would like it. I loved it and so bought the game. To be honest though I was very disappointed in the game. The controls with the stylus felt awkward for some reason, especially trying to place an X in the box. I resorted to using the d pad in the end which was a bit better.

Summary: Le jeu en lui même est très bien. Mais lorsque l'on avance en difficulté la grille devient trop petite et nous devons zoomer pour cocher. Nous perdons donc la vue d'ensemble du puzzle. Cela complique particulierement la tache. Je l'ai testé sur une nintendi Dsi XL. Le problème se fait moins sentir.
