    But with colours, which is a nice twist, I guess. At least, the pics won't look so boringly dull anymore [​IMG]

    Looks fun IMO.

    Will be trying this out.

    Thanks for posting.

    EDIT: Wow, this was supposed to be released on Dec 5th.

    Took a while.

    For a Picross clone, it looks damn hideous.

    Yeesh, can you say low budget? I've seen nicer looking homebrew. how much would it have really cost them to polish up the looks a bit? It's not like they spent a lot of time on the game engine either, it's a quite simple concept.

    I've certainly seen better looking games but it's fun-a nice little spin on the basic picross gameplay

    I'm waiting for Picross 3D, and I'll be playing this one too, it seems a bit rough, I hope it's not too bad!

    With games like this graphics play a very small part. Its about getting the gameplay, control system and a range of puzzles.

    I remember playing something like this a long time ago.. and that sucked really bad. I found that game to be really hard to figure out where the colors would be added, because it wasn't that old number+space+number.. it could be color1+color2+space+color1 or anything... hideous... and by the screens: The backgrounds are very amateur-ish [​IMG]

    Wow, just tried this game. I can tell you it's bad, bad, bad!!

    I thought this game would be good seeing it's similar to Picross (one of my favourite games). How wrong was I? Well, it's Picross in a way but the style and controls are just bad. The moving background are very distracting.

    Like Issac said, it's very amateur-ish, an amateur-ish attempt to grab some quick bucks.

    Stay away from this game if you want to keep your good Picross memories. It destroyed mine!

    Nice. I like these puzzles. Get!
    Free suggestion: also get Essential Sudoku. It contains a lot of these puzzles (also in color)

    That's just how it works with multiple colors. You can't use the same approach, it requires new ones.
