    I'm playing at Normal Lv5, but there's some puzzles at Lv4 that I couldn't manage to progress further and just didn't bothered with.

    I also did the whole Free Lv1 and a few of Lv2, but I'm focusing on Normal right now.

    The first night I picked it up I went all the way to Level 7, but I was bored with it and never touched it since then.

    Normal mode: Finished (including extra levels).
    Free mode: Finished through 7C.

    I try to do it mostly myself with the hint option, and look at the solutions when needed.

    Yeah, there's local Wi-Fi AND Online Wi-Fi multiplayer (although it's only you and one other person) and you compete in a "Speed Picross" match of sorts. It's a race to see who can finish the puzzle first, there are progress bars on the top screen so you can see what percentage of the puzzle you AND your rival have completed, and every time you make a mistake (penalty) you can't make any moves at all for 5 seconds.

    Just finished Level 4 Normal last night. Finished first 5 puzzles on Level 1 Free mode. Never use hint function.

    Same here, don't really see the point if you're gonna get the computer to do half the work for you [​IMG]

    Yeah, but sometimes I just guess and got a bunch more time added. [​IMG]

    It could become a big problem in Free mode though.

    If you time the hints good enough, you could get hints of edge row and edge column, which is game over-20x20 puzzle solved in less than 5 minutes.

    I prefer free mode, quite frequently stylus input is jiggly which ends up in time penalty. I calibrate my touch screen very carefully, but when I play I'm just lying on bed with sloppy stylus control.

    Recently playing Iraroji VOW, every single puzzle is in free mode, and there are multi color picross too which adds some more thinking (the fact that blue 3 red 3 could be 6 cells in a row instead of 3 in a row + at least 1 cell gap)
    But it doesn't have zoom so it's really really hard to read numbers in 25x25 puzzle.
