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
3 May 2010
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.
Excerpt: 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.
Summary: Picross is quite challenging and enjoyable but when you get to level two you have to keep zooming in and out and cant see the whole playing field. I find this very annoying but realise that the tougher puzzles require more squares so what can you do? I think I like it but as I said the jury is still out on the verdict.
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.
