    I agree completely on this point.

    Play on button mode. No longer need to zoom on them anymore... at least on the 15x15 ones... I'm not sure about 20x20...

    I really really don't mind it. Especially considering that the alternative is to have the boxes be tinier than I would be comfortable with.

    Yeah, the stylus and zooming sucks for anything larger than 10x10. I've had to switch to button mode which has made the navigation a bit smoother, though I think my eyes are going to explode with all that squinting.

    If you like this game, I suggest you try out DS #1035 PikuPiku as well.

    This game is fantastic. Plus if anyone's looking for more puzzles check out the SNES versions (something like 9 different Picross games)

    I played the japanese one to death but my save is always corrupted with this one, everytime i boot it up i get a save corrupt message... weird.

    Could it be a problem with M3 CF? Anyone plays this on a M3 CF? I don't have any save problems ever with other games.

    I can't get this to work at all for some reason. I have the latest versions of M3 and the firmware, and I've tried the option shown on the M3 Wiki on my card, and I still get a black screen whenever I load the game.

    Can anyone help me?

    I guess some people don't like the zooming option, while others want to see the whole board, or both!

    I personally have no problem with zooming in, because the top screen accommodates the whole board, while I'm getting detail and input at the bottom.

    Anybody with problems with their M3 Simply / R4 with Picross, consider defragging your card (by removing all the files, formatting, and putting the files back)
    also make sure the main loader (.dat file) is up to date.

    The best option is to buy the actual game, it's guaranteed to work! I promise that, because it works for me 100%!

    Well, when it comes out in the US, I will buy it.

    Also, how would I go about backing up my save files after reformatting my card?

    The zooming is killing the experience for me... And what a great experience this game has been so far.

    Indeed. I was totally hooked until I had played all small puzzles...

    Anyone notice that free puzzle 1-C is kinda hard, at least the first time. All of the level 1 free puzzles are easy as piss except perhaps for the first 3 and the last one. Seems like they didn't bother to ordered by difficulty much in the free category. I have completed the 1-C puzzle but it required one correct assumption for the rest to fall into place using the ? Start mode.
