    "Picross DS" is a slick, simple, and addicting puzzle game.

    Some folk do crossword and Sudoku puzzles almost like a religious practice. I was never big on those type of puzzles until now. I think I have fallen victim, an addict, to Picross DS. Surely there are two types of people... Read Full Review

    A great spare-time killer.

    Picross is the ultimate game for killing spare time. Even if you've only got a couple of minutes to spare, you can still whip through most puzzles. Even better, you can stop halfway and finish later. The gameplay is simp... Read Full Review

    The BEST puzzle game for DS. Period.

    If you like number puzzles, and you own a DS, you must buy this game! And if you don't own a DS, you need to go buy one right away (pink, like mine!) and get this game to go with it! I'll admit that first I was a bit s... Read Full Review

    A fun, addictive puzzle game that is well worth the cheap price tag.

    If you like puzzle games, Picross DS is definitely worth picking up (if you can find it!). You use logic to 'fill in the blanks' on a puzzle grid where the borders of the grid tell you how many 'blanks' need to be filled... Read Full Review
