About The Game

More than 10 years before Picross DS, there was Mario's Super Picross for Super Nintendo. This classic 'picture crossword' game, previously unavailable outside of Japan, features hundreds of relaxing yet challenging brainteasers.

Each Picross puzzle consists of a grid of tiles which reveal a picture when solved correctly. In Mario's main game mode, a wrong move means losing precious time. However, in the more difficult Wario puzzles, mistakes are not indicated and the timer counts upwards!

Like Picross DS, Mario's Super Picross also features a save ability that lets you return to a puzzle later, and various background melodies.
