Fill-a-Pix are exciting logic puzzles that form whimsical pixel-art pictures when solved. Challenging, deductive and artistic, this original Conceptis puzzle offers the ultimate mix of logic, art and fun while providing solvers with many hours of mentally stimulating entertainment.
Each puzzle consists of a grid containing clues in various places. The object is to reveal a hidden picture by painting the squares around each clue so that the number of painted squares, including the square with the clue, matches the value of the clue.
The game features a unique fingertip cursor which enables playing large puzzle grids with ease and precision: to fill a square, move cursor to the desired location and tap anywhere on the screen. To fill multiple squares, press and hold fingertip until cursor fills the square and start dragging to neighboring squares. The game also features a powerful Smart-fill cursor for quick, single-tap filling of all remaining empty squares around a clue.
For more fun, Conceptis Fill-a-Pix includes a Weekly Bonus section providing an extra free puzzle each week.

Ratings and Reviews
Simple, but great
Whenever I want to play a game but I’m not in the mood to play something more involved, Fill-a-Pix is the perfect choice. With simple rules, a spartan but functional interface, and tons upon tons of downloadable (IAP) levels spanning everything from very small puzzles to massive iPad-only huge ones, very easy to impossibly hard, and across a wide range of topics, there’s enough here to keep me busy for years.
And years is how long I’ve been playing Fill-a-pix, in fact. I’m grateful that the developer continues to add new level packs even after all this time. The developer’s other number puzzle games are also well worth trying, though I keep coming back to Fill-a-pix time and time again.
Update: Still playing Fill-A-Pix regularly, all these years later. Nikoli, you really know how to deliver a number puzzle game that is simple yet engaging.
Simple but satisfying
Love these puzzles. I used to get puzzles from their website before they converted many of them to iPad. This is one of the most successful. Simple idea but compelling and satisfying to complete. Highly recommend if you like logic puzzles.
UPDATE: Still playing, still enjoy. They’ve made some improvements to the interface but haven’t cluttered it up with bells and whistles that don’t add anything to the games. I have 6 or 7 Conceptis puzzles that I play almost daily. This is one of my top 2 faves. It engages my brain enough to scratch my puzzle itch, but I can do it even when I’m tired or distracted, at least with the basic level.
Relaxing and challenging
I've had this app for a couple weeks and am very much enjoying these puzzles. Really engaging, they make you think, and the easy logic puzzles are not frustrating.
A couple additional things would be nice. First, hints for learning the hard logic puzzles. Also, it would be nice if the extra puzzle packs were cheaper- I'd buy more of them.
— update (Feb 2019, probably 3 years later): I still enjoy this app as much as I did above- it's one of my all-time favorites. I've learned several additional strategies for solving the harder puzzle, though they're still very challenging.
