Based on the demo, there are some pros and cons with this game. So far, I haven't had to guess where to mark the puzzles, which is good. However, there is still no autocomplete, and the puzzles themselves are just one color. Once you complete one, the colors appear in the image, but there's still no title or explanation of what the picture is supposed to be. Some of them are obvious, but others are a mystery to me. There's now a store where you can use the coins earned by solving puzzles to purchase hints and other things. For some odd reason, the game starts with unlimited mistakes, but the shop offers specific mistake limits for purchase. I admit I skipped the tutorial, since I'm pretty tired of these games trying to tell me which way columns go and so on, so I may have missed an explanation of the shop or the mistakes. I expect I will buy this game, probably with a pcc, just because I like the genre and this doesn't have most of the annoying features in other similar games. I do with the developer would figure out how to use the colors in solving the puzzles as other developers do, though.

Georgiarealist, you only get the "unlimited mistakes" for the first 5 levels, if I remember correctly.

This game is by 8floor, who usually give us the most basic games possible. However, they have either decided to do more than just the basics, or have new people working for them who know how to attract customers, because this game is a step up from all their other pictograms.

However, I found the grid far too small. The numbers were tiny, and this is the kind of game where you strain your eyes quickly even with large grids.

Also, there is no autofill for the empty spaces, which is a pain in the neck, especially because the whole of the grid is so tiny.

Checking out the main game page, I saw 2 different images in colour, and had hoped for a coloured version of the game. Unfortunately, that is not the case. The colours only appear after you have finished the picture.

Considering that all pictograms we are getting here are those that come with a set of different colours, I wouldn't want to play one with just the one colour anymore.

Because of all the above, this is a no-buy for me.

Nice, relaxing music... but the grid numbers are too small, the lack of autofill is a pain, and due to having been spoiled with the wonderful range of colors in Fantasy Mosaics and Rainbow Mosaics, this monochromatic kind of puzzle is boring.

No sale.

I love this game. They have definitely stepped it up. If you want a game that will last for hours and hours this is it. So far the largest puzzle has been 30x30. So much better than the previous games where 20x20 was big. Yes, I know there is no color until after you finish the puzzle but to my thinking that's what helps keep this challenging rather than boring. I love the color and the penguins but I'm glad for the bigger puzzles.

I also like the larger grids, dakini, but I'd like them more if they were physically larger, not just more tiny squares. My eyes are weak enough without having to strain them to make out the little bitty spaces. I expect it will take me weeks to finish this game as I can't do more than one or two grids before having to rest my eyes. And I'm using a 19" laptop, so not a tiny screen - I hate to think what it would be like on a smaller one.

I am so sorry I bought this game!!!! I am a beginner at these nonograms and it seems almost impossible to get past 2 mistakes! Most games don't kick you out as soon as you make that last mistake and this is really getting annoying....I thought the graphics were good but I no longer want to play this game....think I will ask for a refund.....

This is a game for hardcore griddlers. They do not make it easy for you. The pictures, after you are done, come in color, but until then you have to sweat it.

I am up to level 15 and did not need a hint once.

If you like it easy and pretty, this is not for you.

If you like a serious challenge, GET IT!

Love playing a harder game like this although I do miss the color. But I didn't notice until too late that you must have so many stars to go to next session. Since it was harder I let my self have a mistake or two (normally my OCD says no). So I had to go back and play ones I had already done to get a perfect for the stars. But I sit here with 989 hints. One gridder I played you got a mistake taken away when you found something maybe this company could do something like that. Take away a mistake when you get so many hints. With 989 hints I could probably complete a game without playing.
