Best of its kind, but needs debugging!


It's been months, no response from messages I've sent in, and it still freezes up frequently. The music still runs, so I know it's open, but the screen is all white. Every time I have to delete the game and reinstall it, then go through the example! No way to skip it. I am also getting kicked out of the game sometimes for no apparent reason, losing both my progress AND my energy in the process. ??? It's great when it works right!

I love this game! It's a lot of fun to be able to create puzzles as well as play them. And, there's a nice variety, with all the different contributors. I even like the energy, it keeps me from playing incessantly - although it's easy to get around that, I can play lots of games if I play my favorites, for one energy each. And, since I like the large puzzles, that can take a while. Plus, if I run out of energy, I can spend all the time I want making puzzles! And I can get more energy with my points.

Unfortunately, it still sometimes whites out on me - freezes with a completely white screen, and won't load. I have to delete it and reinstall it. And, I now have to go through a tutorial each time I reinstall it!

My previous login issue was user error. The login is your screen name, not your email address. I'm leaving this in here so if I forget again, I'll be reminded!

Thanks for the review! In the latest update (5.9.0), I've increased the contrast on the grid lines, which should make the every-five-squares lines easier to see. Also, the Random button should no longer give you puzzles you've already completed. You could occasionally see the same puzzle multiple times in a row, however. Enjoy!

Falcross is the best!

First off, I have been around for a long time with this app (years). It's honestly the best one around for picross, especially when we have different artists from around the globe! I always love when new packs come out, too! there's always new puzzles (way to go puzzlers!). The only thing I would suggest is that when doing a puzzle the artists name could be under the title and that after finishing a puzzle a user could click on the artists name to go to their profile to check out their other works. Other than that, Falcross has come a long way from where it was when I initially installed it. It was great then, and even greater now! With love, lizowl🦉🌙

Really Fun!!!


I had a really cool idea!!! What if you could use a picture, like a drawing, and then turn it into a puzzle! You tap the image you want to use, and then the app creates a pixelated image for a puzzle! There would have to be limits though, like some could not be used based on how many squares they take up and everything.
Thanks for the gift too, I bet all the older players out there appreciate it as much as I do ;)
One thing I would change is either have more pallets OR let players choose their own colors (like with a wheel or something like how drawing apps do)! I think it would just add a whole world of possibilities for new puzzles.

Hi there! It looks like you're using an iPhone--you've uncovered a bug where 25x25 puzzles are visible on iPhones in search results (they are not supposed to be visible on iPhone at all as it is not practical to play them on such a small screen). I've fixed this bug. Also, I love the photo idea--will have to investigate and see if that's doable. Thanks for playing!
