    It's Japanese but very playable IMHO.

    If you really must play an English-language title then I suppose you could get a GB/GBC emulator and Mario Picross 1 & 2 (the second one was only released in Japan but there's an English patch available).

    Nintendo are releasing Picross DS in Japan this week, I can see that coming to the west sometime this year, hey maybe it might come built in to another brain game if they do another.

    Also for Picross flash games check out this google link
    http://www.google.co.uk/search?q=picross+f...lient=firefox-a

    And for none picross www.weebls-stuff.com and www.newgrounds.com/game/ both have many fine games.

    Another Picross title for the DS is "DS Puzzler NumPlay Fan & Oekaki Logic" -- however there's a lot of Japanese to get through before you get to the game (if you choose the wrong option you'll end up playing Sudoku) and to be honest the implementation isn't a patch on Puzzle Series 6 (neither is Oekaki Puzzle Battle Gaogaiger, IMHO, as there doesn't seem to be a way of marking squares which are definitely blank -- but that's just my personal preference).

    I second 0311 - Oekaki puzzle battle
    I've played just about every picross title on the DS and this has the best controls.

    Oh man, where did I read about this...

    I remember reading about Mario Picross DS somewhere...or maybe I was having an awesome dream...no...I know I read it somewhere and they had 1 picture to go with it.

    EDIT: No, it's just called Picross DS but it's by Nintendo and it's coming out in 3 days in Japan!
