509060We reviewed and enjoyed the first release of Kris Pixton's PathPix back in June.

PathPix is a simple puzzle game that has you drawing lines to connect numbers. The iPhone version of the game is based on the PC version of the same name but also resembles Link-a-Pix (Web) and Pic Pic's Drawing mode (Nintendo DS). The rules are simple:

Draw paths with your finger, connecting pairs of colored numbers. The length of each path must match the numbers on the two endpoints. Draw backwards or double tap to correct mistakes. There's only one way to do it, and all squares will contain a piece of a path when the puzzle is solved.

The original version of the game came with 144 levels which would have offered a fair amount of gameplay though PathPix addicts were soon asking for more.

Pixton has appeased those individuals with a new Pro version for experienced players. For $2.99, you can get 300 more levels ranging form Medium to Extreme difficulty. We really enjoyed this game and found ourselves quickly immersed in the gameplay. If you've never played it, give the Lite a try as we highly recommend it.

App Store Links: PathPix Lite, Free, PathPix, $1.99, PathPix Pro, $2.99

    Lol. I just wrote a review for this on the forums shortly before the front page article.

    I’ve had this app bookmarked to check out for ages. It sounds like PathPix Pro does not contain the levels of regular (non-free) PathPix, so there’s reason to buy both. Yet I’d rather not have two versions of the app—so I hope they add a paid Pro add-on to the regular version via iTunes DLC. It would be the same cost, just one less icon :)

    Anyone that actually ended up finishing all 169 levels of the first game (increased from 144 with the advanced levels update) knows this game is worth buying, and cheap at the price. PathPix in my opinion is THE most underrated game on the store, don't be fooled by how it looks... I made the foolish mistake of ignoring it for way too long. I saw the screenshots and thought "simplicity, hmm... numbers, hmm" and decided it wasn't for me. Only later did I realize you're actually creating pictures with the puzzle and there's no mathematics involved, and from that moment it became the single most played game on my iPod.

    Brilliant game. Played the PC version a few years ago and liked the concept, but not the graphics. Saw this for the iPod and tried the Lite version. Bought the Normal and surely gonna buy the Pro. Like MidianGTX said: THE most underrated game on the store!

    Ah, I love PathPix. So simple, yet so effective. Seriously, the graphics could be from an amateur's game maker game but the game in itself is so great that they don't matter. This Pro is great but gotta finish the normal first before buying this. It's got a heck of a lot of levels in the normal version already. :O
