How To Play
The goal of a nonogram puzzle is to "fill" all the correct blocks in a grid. The key to solving each puzzle is the numbers on the top and left of the grid. Each number gives you a clue about how many blocks are filled in each row or column. For example, if the clue for a row was "4 3 1", that means there are four sequentially filled blocks, a gap of one (or more), three filled blocks, another gap, and then finally one filled block on its own. In a 10x10 puzzle grid, this clue solves the whole row: 4 filled + 1 blank + 3 filled + 1 blank + 1 filled = 10 total. Solve easy clues first, then you can logically fill in the rest of the blocks in the grid. Make sure to play the tutorial for more practice!

This is by far the best implementation of Picross I've found, but unfortunately not all of the puzzled are solvable using just logic. Many of the puzzles at the end, you are required to guess, which will sometimes result in you losing.
Picross is supposed to be strictly logic based, and not at all luck based. Once that is fixed, my review will easily become 5 stars.
One of the best picross!!!
It's better than pixelogic due to its fluid gameplay, better control, better graphic, and it has sounds! And it's cheaper!!!! It's relaxing and entertaining! Plz add more levels! Thank you!
All puzzles are 20x20. Most of the puzzles are symmetrical around one axis. You can x out any square but if you fill a square that is supposed to be blank it deducts minutes off your 30 minute timeframe to solve each puzzle. It has an achievements button that does not work.
