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!
Summary: 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...
Pros: Excellent introduction to the genre
Cons: Doesn't take the idea far enough to be a challenge
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: Saw a review of this yesterday and then had a cinversation with a friend and she had a copy so I thought I would give it a go and then write the review so here it is. This is a very quick and easy game to grasp right from the off. The game initially starts up with a tutorial and takes you through a simple game. Right so how do you play. This game is based on logic the tutorial starts with a five by five grid. Along each axis is a number or series of numbers.
Pros: Addictive, easy quick start
Cons: Can get a bit boring after a while, no multi profile option
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.
Excerpt: ...Ciao a tutti, vi presento un giochino molto carino per consolle Nds :Picross Il titolo già la dice lunga : Picross ossia "picture" (immagine) + "crossword" (cruciverba). Non è molto facile da spiegare questo vero e proprio rompicapo che si articola l ...
Summary: Très bonne formule qui change du Sudoku mais le trait qui fome les petits chiffres est trop épais et pour certaine vue (on n'a pas toujours 20 ans) peut rendre la lecture difficile : erreur en perspective, ce qui gache un certain plaisir.
