    Picross was reviewed pretty well across the board. I like puzzle games for the most part and thought I would give it a whirl. The concept was new and different enough to make it very interesting at the very beginning. Us... Read Full Review

    Completely addictive.

    I bought this game mainly because I used to buy the Hanje (formally Tsunami) puzzle books which are exactly the same. So for anyone who had those books then this game is for you. The great thing about this game is that ... Read Full Review

    Nonograms are an elegant, entertaining logical challenge, and Picross DS makes solving them enjoyable and convenient.

    Although they haven't been around as long, or received as much press and attention, as Su Doku puzzles, nonograms are still nothing new, and not without a following. The original Picross (short for Picture Crosswords) ga... Read Full Review

    If you're looking for a challenge but don't feel like spending a lot, then Picross DS is the only way to go.
