I bought it. I'm on puzzle 5H of Easy mode.

They are starting to get harder though. I don't like guessing but when there are a lot of small numbers, I'm not sure where to begin.

I bought it since most people seem to have a high opinion of it.
This is the first time I've ever played a Picross game.
I was almost scared away from buying it because the game sounded really complicated.
After a few puzzles I started to see how it works and got the idea.

@Taya so is the game worth buying even for a non-puzzle fan?

@sam322 - Picross is just the term Nintendo uses to describe nonogram (not to be confused with nonagram) puzzles. If you google that term, you should be able to find a site that has some you can do online. That should help you determine whether or not this game is for you.

Exactly.

I find these puzzles really addicting. I finished easy mode and now I'm on the "Kinoko" course.

I'm also starting to get a lot better. At first I didn't know how to handle a puzzle that didn't have big numbers to start me off and sometimes I would just guess. Now I can figure out 15x15 puzzles without having to guess.

I'm already having a hard time and I'm doing easy Picross mode.
I know which boxes to chisel when there's a row of 5's all the way across. That's pretty obvious.
When the numbers are smaller like 2,1,1,3 I get confused. I 'm never able to figure out exactly how many spaces are supposed to be left alone so I end up guessing. That never ends well.

I'll pick this up when I have my own 3DS. :) I'm very much enjoying Picross 3D (bought it a year ago, and I'm still not done with it) so this ought to be good.

There's no reason to guess in Picross :) You need to think of ways to get those somehow without chiseling random blocks. I've had problems myself in the past but I figured out many ways to get the puzzles complete. Marking the blocks is a great help.

I bought this game just today but I've played this one along with Picross DS and Picross 3D so I'm not having troubles (at least yet). I just hate how it asks for hint every time...

Yes totally worth it! And theres 10+ of gameplay in it depending how quick you are. Personally I took 16 hours now I can't get enough of picross!

If you're doing a 5x5 puzzle and you see a 3, then you know you can chisel the square in the centre because no matter where the row starts, it will use that space.

You can do the same thing with larger puzzles. Also keep in mind that it's just as important to figure out the empty spaces. For example if there is a 2, and you have one square chiseled already, you know that the other square will be adjacent to it and the other squares can be crossed off.

I had difficulty with easy mode at firs too but now I understand how to solve these puzzles.

@Link79 - If you haven't figured it out already, you can go to the home menu and look at the game's instruction manual, which has a page full of tips on how to use the clues to solve the puzzles. Hope that helps!

Exactly.

Thanks for the help everyone! I am starting to get the hang of it.
I'm still kinda slow at figuring the puzzles out but I'll get better the more I play.

I purchased it, but the screen is so tiny sometimes I had to squint and so I play Picross 3D instead ;-/ Seems cool, though.

I've been playing this game a lot the past couple of days. I'm a fan of Picross 3-D and the original DS game Picross so I am loving this one, too. I especially love how the puzzle pics are of really basic 8 bit looking things, very cute and challenging. Lovin' this game. Glad i picked it up to play it after letting it collect dust for the past few months ;)

Game isn't the greatest but without competition in the genre worth the money. Personally I prefer Picture Puzzle for Neo Geo Pocket over it. The time-penalty when you make mistake makes the game too easy.

For anyone that's played this and Picross DS, you could download old Picross puzzles on the DS game, many of them Mario themed. Are they the same puzzles as from this game? If so, I probably don't need to download this since I've already done the puzzles on Picross DS, right?

From what I have seen in this game, less than 10% of the puzzles are Mario-themed.
