Wow. Area 5 threw a curve ball with the puzzle in the middle of the area. I was not expecting that kind of difficulty jump. My skills are a bit rusty since I haven't played any Picross games for a year or so but 19:30 is just miserable time for 20x15 puzzle. Just a warning if someone is going to take on said puzzle soon and won't be using Pokémon powers. You have to think a bit ahead while solving it.

I'm thinking of buying the discounted picrites but I'll think about it for a couple of days and see if earning picrites will become easier/harder as I go. I haven't payed anything for Shuffle, Rumble World or this game yet and I've been really enjoying Shuffle and Picross so I kind of feel guilty for not giving them any money. I've paid money for worse Picross games.

@Sinister: Thank you. I arrived at a road block again and can't advance to the next area yet so it's good to have some additional puzzles to solve while gathering the picrites needed.

Chances are you won't be able to use Pokemon in that one the first time you get to it, since Pokemon have size limitations.

For example, a Pokemon that says size: 10x10 can't be used in a puzzle any larger than that.

So yeah... Quite a difficulty spike. It doesn't help that all of the early bigger Pokemon are basically all blue power.

I just got Ash-Greninja from a secret area I unlocked with a code, that was a pretty difficult 20 x 15 picross. I think I'll wait for another bunch of picrite promotions and buy a lot, this game's worth it.

One more password puzzle to solve. They really want me to buy those picrites. I started playing today and was greeted by a message that a puzzle appeared nearby again. Turns out it's on area 7 which I can't access yet. I think I have to wait 5 days to unlock the next area even if I do all the tasks that are currently doable. Slowly starting to lean towards buying those discounted picrites.

@6ch6ris6: When you've used all the passwords, the option to enter a password disappears but the stages should now be unlocked. You still have to pay picrites to play them like any other normal stage.

i dont have to use picrits to play the stages. whats the point in "unlocking" the stages then? i can inlock them by just clearing the former stage.

6ch6ris6: I think they made them locked because the Pokémon forms found on those stages are yet to appear in any other game. They haven't officially released the passwords yet.

Say, has anyone tried to figure out what games the backgrounds are from? Area 30 looks like the peak of Mt. Silver, and Area 04(?) might belong in Hoenn's Route 118. Or are they just random backdrops?

Well i spend the money to unlock the game. And i do not regret it. Picross is as much fun as ever and Pokémon adds to my entertainment.
I am close to 25 hours in the game and i have not even done half of the puzzles yet. Compared to the e Series this game is overpriced but not as much as some might think.

I think I have done everything I can without spending money. I've gotten every Pokemon except for the Mega evolved ones up through Area 7 and done every challenge that doesn't require Pokemon I don't have or unlocking a third slot. I love Picross, but there are so many free options on my Kindle and other places I find it hard to pay for it anymore. I guess I just do the daily challenges for fun now until I build up enough to unlock the next area.

After 40 hours i finished all areas with the exception of the "roaming" Pokémons.
I also did not finish all the challanges or the two murals (missing 13 i think) and i have not touched the alternate mode.
There should be another 30 - 40 hours of content in this game for me.

Pretty good for a 30€ title.

I gave in. I bought both one-time offers. I'll probably buy the remaining 4k Picrites some other time.

I bought the one-time offers some time ago as well. First time I paid for a free to play title. I'm in area 13. Collecting picrites so I can advance to the next area. I should be able to get enough picrites to open a couple more areas before I have nothing but the daily challenge to do. I used some of my picrites to unlock Alt-World. It's nice that you don't have to unlock areas again there but it seems you can't earn picrites by completing stages in there. Correct me if I'm wrong, I've only played the tutorial puzzles from Alt-World.

The discounted picrites were enough to remove the HP bar and unlock all the areas up to 10.

I think I'll end up buying the 4000 picrit pack when I get enough eShop credit. Eventually.

I've just figured out you actually need to tap on the picrite reward medals to earn them so now I have enough to pay to go to the next area without having to do a few days worth of challenges

i really dont like the mission system. i need to choose a certain pokemon before solving the picross, but i dont have that pokemon even though i finished all previous picross from the game.
