Customer Reviews


I was not a picross fan before this game, but it has converted me. Other iOS picross games don't even come close to the quality and fun of this one, so I hope the devs have a big puzzle pack or sequel for us soon. This game has a simple and effective interface, engaging presentation, and clever pixel art that is both humorous and also provides a nice added incentive for puzzle completion. Also worth noting is that Cloud synching has worked flawlessly for me so far between multiple iOS devices, and the ability to have multiple profiles is a very nice touch that adds value for those who share a tablet. My wife and I are both hooked, and I highly recommend this game to anyone who enjoys sudoku or other logic-based puzzle games.

A Perfect Puzzler

This has been my favorite mobile game since it was first released. The picross-style logic puzzle mechanics are easy to learn but tough to master, reminiscent of Minesweeper and Sudoku. Two qualities set Paint It Back apart from similar games: rock solid mechanics and a ton of personality. It's completely intuitive, allowing you to fill in the puzzle as quickly as you can figure it out. It offers genuinely funny levels and a surprisingly enjoyable soundtrack. All I can ask for is more: more levels, more background music, more of whatever else was poured into this game to make it so awesome.

Worth it, every penny

I play a lot of games. Mostly, I download them, play them for a few weeks and move on. Paint it Back is different. I bought it years ago, and it's been a fixture on my phone since then. It's a old favorite for when I want to play something pure, and I find new strategy for play here long after I beat it for the first time.

Edit: And then two days after I review it, a huge update appears, three years after release. Great work, developer!
