Picross 3D

3D puzzle mechanics translate well ; Challenging and absorbing gameplay ; Hundreds of interesting puzzle levels ; Incredibly addictive

Presentation is underwhelming

Picross 3D


Picross 3D isn't as important as eating, talking to your friends or going to work. It just feels like it is when you're playing it.

Its aesthetic fits comfortably under the banner of the Touch! Generations label, including a weird block sidekick thing that sits in the top screen and completely loses it when you're approaching the time limit. He's probably just upset that you're...

Picross 3D Review


A welcome shift

Obscene amount of puzzles, ability to have four profiles per cartridge, gradually increasing difficulty level

Conceptual shift makes game less appealing to casual users, dated presentation, enslaves your mind

P.S. I love you. Don't ever leave.

Picross 3D - DS review at Thunderbolt Games


It shouldn't be this hard. It's just tapping cubes on a screen. That's all. Nothing more. The numbers are there to help you. They show you where to tap next. Everything's right there in front of you, waiting to be figured out. Calm down. Think. Never...
