CrossPix Magic is a collection of nonogram puzzles that are fun and challenging to complete, we feature easy to hard puzzles for the beginner and the expert alike.
In 1987, Non Ishida, a Japanese graphics editor, won a competition in Tokyo by designing grid pictures using skyscraper lights which are turned on or off. At the same time and with no connection, a professional Japanese puzzler named Tetsuya Nishio invented the same puzzles.
This is the basis that CrossPix is based upon, these puzzles are also known as Paint by Numbers, Griddlers, Pic-a-Pix, Picross, Prisma Pixels, Hanjie and many others.
We have added a little more to the art of these puzzles, in order to solve all puzzles you must first unlock them with CM Points, which, can be earned by solving puzzles, the more complex the puzzle the more points it takes to unlock but also the more it points you will earn. You can use points to purchase hints which will aid you in the solving of the more complex puzzles.

I love picross type games. This one has a nice user interface for doing the puzzles, but appears a bit overpriced IMO. Additional puzzle packs are available for 99 cents for 20 puzzles, where my favorite other picross type game gives a new free one every day. One thing that drives me nuts is that while you can change the volume on the background music, you can't turn it completely off, and after a while I find it extremely annoying. It took a while to get used to red indicating that the row or column was complete; my knee jerk reaction to something turning red is that it's a mistake.
