Picross HD: Picture Puzzles

By Five Lakes Studio, LLC

This app is only available on the App Store for iOS devices.


** Play the #1 Picross App with over 1000 puzzles and over 100 free!!!
Updated Monthly With New Puzzles. **

Picross HD is an easy to learn and fun logic puzzle game where you fill in squares on a grid according to numeric clues that reveal a super awesome retro picture as you go!!!

You can play with hints so you know right away when you make a mistake or with hints off where you have to discover your own mistakes. By default hints are on to help people learning how to play. Or people like me that like to know right away when I messed up.

If you like Picross HD and decide to purchase a puzzle pack, we will love you very much!!! Plus we turn off all ads so you have an uninterrupted play experience. Did I mention we will love you very much. I would also recommend checking out the daily puzzle packs. They give you a random selection of puzzles to play each day from our entire catalog of puzzles (over 1000 on the iPad and over 500 on the iPhone).

If you have an iPad you can also build you own puzzles. It's super easy as we do all the work in figuring out the number clues. You just draw the super awesome picture. You can also share your creation with your friends. All for free!!!

Try it, we hope you will like it. Here are what other have had to say:

"The best Picross game currently available on the iPad." - MrMLK

"…best controls of all the crosspix apps out there!" - Pixel Fan

"I have tried many other picross apps for the iPhone and this is the only one that actually makes it less work then pen and paper." - James Zaczkowski

Please let us know what you think, your feedback is always much appreciated.

Unable to open

I have used this app for a long time and have bought many in app purchases but after this update I am unable to open it! I have a first generation IPad. Please fix this quickly to support a loyal customer before I lose interest and uninstall the app.
I deleted the app and reinstalled it in case this was the problem as well as shutting my IPad off and restarting. I have noticed other complaints of with the same problem so it is not an isolated case.

Ok. It's been a week since I posted this and over two weeks since some of the other crashing reviews without a reply from picross. There needs to be some kind of response or you are going to lose my business.

Love this game!!!

I am OBSESSED with this game! I have never had any problems with it after uploads... The only problem is that I wish they would create new puzzles faster! I have reset and replayed all the puzzles at least 3-4 times!! Best picross game available!!

Umm no actual gameplay

There is what I think is a glitch where you tap each individual square and it will automatically place an x or a square. So all you have to do is tap each square and you will eventually get the answer from that. It always places an x on an unused square and it puts a square on any square that is needed for the puzzle. So there is basically no gameplay.
