'Piero's Wiicross is a picture logic puzzles in which cells in a grid have to be colored or left blank according to numbers given at the side of the grid to reveal a hidden picture.

The numbers measure how many unbroken lines of filled-in squares there are in any given row or column. For example, a clue of "4 8 3" would mean there are sets of four, eight, and three filled squares, in that order, with at least one blank square between successive groups.

Normal mode
If you try to colour a cell that can't be coloured, an error penalty is shown. Puzzle is solved when the image is correctly drawn.

Free mode
There is no error reporting when you colour a wrong cell. Puzzle is solved when you hit the check button and the image is correctly drawn, otherwise an error penalty is shown.

Every error make the timer increase of a certain amout of time.'

Based on the gameplay of Amplitude (and its DS homebrew sibling, AmplituDS), and equipped with all-new Wintery stages, you play one part of the song at a time (focus on one instrument at a time, for example drums) until you've played it enough to continue on and try another. The music for each instrument track only plays if you are successful at playing the pattern.'

You won a wellness holiday is the ice caves of the alps. Sounds great? It was, until the evil snowman zombies took over the whole resort (after all, the glacier is their realm, so why not?).
You were captured in your ice-suite after having a shower, but fortunately they let you have your turbo hair-dryer (as useful for snowmen as a flamethrower for humen). This is your only chance! Use your hair dryer as a weapon and try to overcome the guards and security measures of the snowmen to fight your way out of the ice-labyrinth.
