    This was an entry in the GBAX 2005 Coding Competition, the download link from there no longer works. It's listed in temp's download section but that just links to filetrip (R.I.P.), and I can't locate a working download via google. I did gather that there were multiple version releases, but the competition entry appears to be the newest and biggest file, so likely most complete (this random page lists it with filename "Picross Advance by Phantom (GBAX2005 Entry) (PD).gba", 648,60Kb - tho no download link). It doesn't show up on the usual gba homebrew index sites, IDK if it got scrubbed from existence because of a copyright claim or something, or something else weird happened.

    It's not life or death or anything, I just like picross, and now that I've seen this existed I find its absence mysterious.

    The closest to Picross Advance that I could find is Battle Picross.

    Thank you both! I had a heart sinking moment when the rom wouldn't start on my Micro or in an emulator, but I tried fixing the header with gbafix and now it works perfectly! It's a little clunky compared to the official games but it's definitely picross!
