Picross is s highly addictive logical puzzle game. To beat these puzzles you will need a combination of simple math skills and good guesswork. The puzzles in this game are made up of grids that can range from 5x5 to 20x20 squares. The point of the game is to look at numbers lining up the top and left side of the puzzle and figure out which squares need to be filled in while avoiding the ones that don?t. In the end by filling in the correct squares you will create a picture, which may be an animal, fruit, or other object. If you complete the puzzle within 60 minutes the picture will turn into a colored animation which is very satisfying to all your hard work.

The DS controls are perfect for this game up to a point. On the smaller puzzles you can simply drag your stylus across the squares you want to fill in and complete them in a fast and accurate manor. As the puzzles get larger it is necessary to zoom in and out of the grid to reach certain parts of the puzzle because of this changing the controls over to button pressing seems like a more likely solution to solving the puzzle in a timely manor.

Wifi adds another great aspect to the game as it gives you a way to compete against other players all over the world. While playing online you can either go up against your friends or someone of your same ranking that you don?t know. Competing online presents a huge challenge and it?s nice to have that feature to such a great puzzle game.

Buying this game is great for the puzzles fanatics who enjoy games such as Sudoku or Planet Puzzle league, not only because it?s addictive but also it?s a steal at just 20 dollars.
