Picross 3D Screenshots



Prepare your mind for a puzzling mental work-out, as Picross 3D comes to the Nintendo DS on 5 March 2010. Whether the puzzle solver within you prefers logic tasks or quick thinking conundrums, there will be something in Picross 3D for you.

Hot on the heels of the popular Picross DS game, Picross 3D adapts the traditional nonogram puzzle mechanic for 3D. Nonograms are grid-based puzzles that require the player to work out which squares are filled or left blank by applying logic in regards to the numbers on the side of the grid.

When you’ve correctly solved a nonogram puzzle an image is often created at the end. With Picross 3D, players chisel out various objects from a block by eliminating the extra cubes based on numeric information in the rows and columns. The game introduces new gameplay elements and tactics over time and offers much content with more than 350 objects to discover. After an object is revealed, it comes to life in a short, fun animation.

Picross 3D has the benefit of fewer rules when compared to Picross DS. The game only requires the user to apply logical rules, not to deduce which blocks might be filled or not based on contradictions by comparing multiple rows.

Fancy being your own puzzle master? Bursting with fiendishly difficult puzzle ideas? Dedicated Picross fans will be pleased to know that, similar to its 2D predecessor, Picross 3D offers a level editor for users to create new puzzles and share them with your friends and family via local wireless connection. Moreover, if you fancy putting your puzzle to the test, you can enter your logic teaser into an international competition via Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection! Using Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection you can download additional content, including both new official puzzles and other people’s home-made gems.
