    I was wondering,

    i need a good picross game that updates regularly

    and i think iPicross could do the trick, but before i buy it, i was wondering if any of you guys have got it.

    I would be surprised if GatorDeb did not :D

    But what is it like?
    Are the puzzle varied in difficulty?
    Is the menu clear and the music?

    thanks guys,
    Lukearcade22

    *i would insert a link, but not sure how to*

    I think GatorDeb will take this, she claimed that she owns every picross app.
    Wait for her review! :)

    edit: oops, already mentioned...

    I might give this ago, but I'm a bit dubious about puzzle size and difficulty.

    Pixelcross was tauted as being of a decent difficulty level, but I found it to be far too easy. By far the most difficult part was navigating around. I didn't use the x button once, and pretty comfortably broke most of the staff records. BTW I wouldn't consider myself a picross expert, as most of the people I see doing real picross puzzles here in japan seem to be at the same level/speed as me.

    I did buy it yesterday night :D

    But when I search for it on the Touch, the name comes up but when I click it says no apps found. So I wasn't able to play it. Going to try again in a few minutes. I can't use the PC because it's too much hassle to organize all those apps for sync, easier to organize on the Touch.


    Well I was able to download it and like it so far. The controls are great - swipe to mark, and if you are swiping over a spot that is already marked it doesn't unswipe (some Picross games have this problems and it annoys the hell out of me).

    To the dev if he's here - do you plan to make future levels downloadable? PixelCross has online levels but I really want to be able to download packs you make and packs other people make.

    I'd say go for it! And it's only a buck! :D

    I'm one of the devs of iPicross. I'm happe that you like it so far. We a currently developing new features like uploaded puzzles created with the editor and a rating system.

    to answer your questions:
    @langs: the app has two langs, german and english
    @download: you can already download new puzzles with the build in downloader in the puzzle list.

    happy ipicrossing

  11. For iPicross does it have where it changes color of numbers to indicate # has been satisified? Doesn't mean it's correct just satisfies correct amount. Helpful for quick glance to see what needs more work. 30 puzzles way too low. Wait for 200 or so then might take the plunge though.
