Wow I forgot how much I like those puzzles :D thanks for reminding me!
I would suggest to change it so you could draw with the mouse, clicking every square in a longer line was a bit frustrating

The time constraints didn't really make it feel too novel, but nonetheless the game was executed very well! The starting animation is also great :)

Man.. I probably spend an hour on this lol!
Thank you so much for giving the hints and keeping the levels the same. I kept losing and then saying... OK ONE MORE! THIS TIME I GOT IT!


(Managed to get only to the second level! Had an amazing time! I'll now recommend this game to my brother, he likes puzzle games and we were not aware of this one! Thanks! And well done for such a polished game!)

I knew I need to include some in-game tutorials, but you know how it is rushing to do the submission in the last minutes! As such, I only managed some explanation in the game page. Thanks for giving it a try.

Finally I know how these puzzles are called, I played something similar before :)

The difficulty is a bit high, not sure if your code would allow easily creating smaller grids, but ramping up the size would give a nice difficulty curve. (Later I found "easier mode" in settings, but I'm not sure what it does)

UX is very nice. Visuals are minimalistic, but cohesive and pleasant and sfx improves the experience a lot.

Thanks for giving the game a try. My original idea was to have 7x7 puzzles, but my wife pronounced them too easy (although she is a pro in playing picross!). The "easier" mode changes the time penalties from exponential (10 seconds, 20, 40 and 80) to just 10 seconds for each mistake.

Nice puzzle game.


Well done.

At first I thought you had to solve ALL SEVEN puzzles in seven minutes!

Very relaxing little game.

I’ll echo a few other comments about being able to place x’s and draw lines. Other than that, a good job implementing Picross. I like the music. The failure music is very dramatic!

Good fun playing this game! Nice images, good controls, good job

Its a good game the graphics and color palette are good. I just wish I could place x's, that made it a bit difficult to succeed.

Submitted(+1)

It's a classic picross game, which I do enjoy. I didn't like being unable to place X's though, that made it more difficult for me.

Submitted(+2)

Interesting concept, I think the controls could use some work though. You can't place x's or click to drag lines of blocks, which makes the whole experience kinda harder and frustrating.

Thanks for giving it a try. I'll see if I can make things smoother post-jam.
