Picross 2

Your rating: None Average: 5 (9 votes)

Solve the puzzles to find the hidden pictures in the grid based on numeric clues. For every clue, there is a block of adjacent cells of that size in that row or column. The only unknown is the amount of empty space between the blocks - maybe before the first and after the last block, too - and that is the logic behind Picross.

Levels are sorted by difficulty, and you have to complete one difficulty to unlock the next one. At the moment, there are 103 levels spread across six difficulties.

The original Picross app was developed by baspar, along with most of the current levels. As the last version released doesn't work any more (without patching), I decided to fork it, make it work again, fixed some visual bugs and improved the visuals in many places.

Please note that your progress does not transfer from the original Picross automatically. There is a workaround, please see my GitHub page for details.

This game is also available in Jolla Store.

Is it possible to make the 5*5 grid borders darker for light theme?

To be honest, I haven't really tested light themes with Picross... It doesn't look that bad though, since only theme colors are used. Could you open up an issue to GitHub with a screenshot?

Progress is not saved.

Indeed there's an issue when it's installed on a new device with Sailjail. I'll look into it.
