    Following a vow to the Triforce formulated by Ganon on a sad rainy day, the kingdom of Hyrule changed into Picross grids. Using his courage and pencil together, Link set off on this new challenge

    All you need to know about this game is in the official site of the game: http://www.zeldaroth.fr

    --------​

    The source code of my port is on my github (https://github.com/nop90/ZeldaPicross).
    The compiled game (3dsx and CIA formats) is released on github (https://github.com/nop90/ZeldaPicross/releases).

    Credits:
    The original game is made by Vincent Jouillat (http://www.zeldaroth.fr)
    This game uses the sf2d and sftd libraries created by @xerpi

    Seems good, trying out since i finished Picross 3D R2.

    BTW, is like some random idea i thinked sometime ago:

    1.- Tell everyone that i made a port of a heavy-intensive game (for this case, let's select Dark Souls 3).
    2.- Release the content without any screenshot.
    3.- Is just a Tetris clone with Dark Souls 3 video gameplays running on the top screen :rofl2:

    Kewl, I will most definitely download this and never play it! (like every other game on my 3ds)

    I read that as "Triforcefox" instead of Triforce, and I was like: :creep:
    Cool game, glad to see you get rid of that annoying debug screen!

    Debug screen is for debug. Once game is done I use to compile without the DEBUG flag in the makefile. :D

    Released a new version with music enabled.

    Before the final release (with the CIA version) I want to test it a little more and make some small optimization (maybe using the bottom screen).

    I just read about this and your other Zelda fangame ports on your post about whether or not you should keep developing for the 3DS. These games look like they could be a lot of fun, so whatever your ultimate choice on that thread, thanks for doing the work for these ones anyway. :)

    @nop90, do you have an estimate on when the final version will be released?

    Just uploaded a new release with the CIA format. It's not final, but only a RC because there are some thing to check for the CIA builds (nothing that affects the gameplay).

    No relevant change in the 3dsx format, so no need to update it.

    Sorry for the delay, but I always had problems encoding the sound for the CIA banner, and this time I wanted to find the reason some wav files work and others with the same encoding don't (and I finally found the answer :)).

    Happy Picross and Happy New Year.

    Just about to finish Picross 3D 2, so I'll definitely be getting this to feed my Picross addiction :P Looks great!

    It's great. Wish it was easier to see even on my XL... like to be able to zoom the tiny puzzles or make your currently selected tile stand out in some way more. But awesome.

    Yeah, I wish it was a little easier to see, too. I also had trouble telling a 7 from a 1. Other than that, very cool!

    I exchanged my XL with the normal 3ds of my son, and on the little screen of the small 3ds it's very hard to see numbers; but I don't know yet how to improve the game.

    I could use a zoom function (with the L and R butons) and a scroling screen on the top screen, but the game will lose the global wiew of the board and showing the bottom right part of the picross the numbers won't be visible.

    Another option could be to show in big chars only the numbers of the selected row and column on the bottom screen. This could be better.

    What about it? Any other idea?
