Picross DS

By the numbers

Sudoku, eat your heart out. While the trendy number puzzles may be a good mental workout, at the end of a puzzle all you’ve got is a grid filled with numbers. Big deal. Enter Picross DS. Who needs a big pile of numbers when you can be rewarded with a cute, animated picture?

Numbers in the margins offer the map you’ll need to create each puzzle’s picture, representing how many consecutive spots need to be filled in. It’s simple, but plenty of fun, and as sad as it may sound, the pictures really do make a satisfying reward. Meanwhile, downloadable puzzles and the ability to create your own add to the game’s longevity… as does the standard-issue Touch Generations daily play mode that tracks your progress.

There are a ton of puzzles, and the possibilities are endless. But while it’s a fun game, it’s more or less a one-trick pony that’s probably won’t keep you playing for hours on end. On the other hand, it’s a game you can go back to time and time again. This game has huge value, and at its very affordable price it’s easy to recommend.
