    About this game:
    Akari is a puzzle game from Puzzle DS Series by Nikoli (Wikipedia link).

    Progress: Finished
    This is a complete translation, with few exceptions:
    1. I couldn't find 2nd skin's graphcics, so it's untranslated;
    2. There are some graphics that might be unused and/or not used in Akari so I left them untranslated.

    You'll love this one then. Thanks for all the hard work that went into it. In fact, now since it's in English, I can finish this game with no more stumbling around menus.

    Thank you, T-Tudor. Another great DS puzzle is more accessible now. Do you have in your plans to translate some more titles? Kakuro, Hitori, Nurikabe & Illust Logic from the Puzzle Series are a fun games too.

    I'm already engaged in a solo project, so I don't know.


    I started a long time ago translating Kakuro, but didn't do much progress, and left it. Then I started Akari.

    Files inside Kakuro & Illust Logic are similar to files inside Slither-Link, so these games are harder to translate than Hitori & Nurikabe.
    Yet Kakuro has simpler graphics than Slither-Link, so I don't think it needs much work to get translated.
    Illust Logic has more complex graphics, so it needs more work.
    As for Kakuro and Nurikabe, they share many graphics with Akari, and it's possible to copy some from Akari to them.

    If anyone is interested in translating Kakuro/Nurikabe, I can help him. And by help I mean, to tell him how to do it.


    I don't know, maybe when I'll finish my current project, I'll try to finish translating Kakuro. As for other games, I don't think I'll translate them.
    I might try Illust Logic too, but chances are slim.
