    Hey all, I just downloaded this game and have totally fallen in love with it. I'm thinking of picking it up, but it seems like there's not as many puzzles as I'd expect for the price. I'm guessing you can unlock more, so I'm curious how many there are in total, at least in the "normal" mode (I'm new at this).


    Also, I've heard you can download tons of puzzles packs from wireless, but I don't have access to a wireless connection. Is there any way to download them and put them on a flashcart?


    Thanks in advance [​IMG]

    To get them on a flashcart, it's all in the save file.

    Damn... as far as I know, the game is only 20 dollars in the USA (no idea how much it costs in Japan, though).

    Now then - there's a single Level for the Easy Mode, which means 15 puzzles. Plus 11 Levels from Normal Mode and at least 10 from Free Mode - 15+(15.21) = 330 puzzles, at least. Plus there's the My Picross mode, Daily Picross and the possibility to download more puzzles from the Wi-Fi Connection. To me, that's quite a lot - I have been playing the game for over a month (and pretty much not playing anything in my DS besides it) and I still haven't finished it all.

    Honestly, I really don't think the game isn't worth the price, I'd rather say it's quite a bargain. It's fun, ridiculously addictive, has a ton of replay value, and costs way less than a lot of DS games. =P

    Can you tell me where I can download such a save file? If I'm not allowed to ask on this board, I apologize, but I figure it should be ok since it's all free content anyway. I looked on this site and on Gamefaqs and couldn't find out where or how to download the packs.


    Oh and Rod, you've convinced me. Thanks [​IMG]

    My friend, take the existing number of puzzles that you see and quadruple it!

    I thought the same thing when I got into the game last year and 100+ hours into it and I'm only about 70% of the way there!
    You'll basically be constantly unlocking puzzles as you go.
    Enjoy!

    There are LOADS of puzzles [​IMG]

    About 350 normal ones (and these go up to 25x20, so take a little while)

    Then there are the daily ones, which don't really count, but is Picross' take on brain training [​IMG]

    Then there are the downloadable ones, I don't know about the US version, but if you get the Japanese version (no Japanese is actually needed) then there are literally HUNDREDS more to download.

    The US version has about 500 extra puzzles for download, and more may be available in the future.

    That's more than in the actual game itself.

    Yeah I just got to the 15x15 puzzles, and they're totally doing my head in. Not so much that the puzzles are more complex, but more navigating the screen and having to zoom in and out is kinda pissing me off. I'm sure I'll keep playing though.

    Heh, i love it how every person that answers has a larger number of puzzles than the last. "There are like 50 downloadable puzzles." "There are 300 dl puzzles!" "There are over 500 DL PUZZLES!" "THERE ARE MORE THAN 19876398876y1q DL PUZZLES!" "OMG!!! DL PUZZLES CURE CANCER AND THE AIDS!!"

    Really though, there are just shy of a metric shit-ton of puzzles in Picross. I've been enjoying the HELL out of this game since i bought it when it came out. It's entertaining as balls. And the puzzles can cure cancer and the aids.

    Oh, and it is mandatory... when you make your first puzzle, it *MUST* be a pixelated cock. Hey, i don't make the rules, i just follow them.

    Thanks guys, Does anybody have any other info about finding a savefile with the extra puzzle packs? I don't have wireless internet at home and can't seem to get it working at school either...

    I could give you a save file with the first 100 download puzzles on it if you like.

    I assure you, there is at least one puzzle in this game. Plus another point-five puzzles available for download.

    I wish this was Digg, I'd definately digg up your comment, one of the few other people I've met online or in real life that uses the phrase "metric shit ton"
