Picross DS Screenshots



Fill in squares using simple hints to reveal the hidden picture. You'll need both puzzle-solving skills and creativity to earn your picture reward!

Category: Puzzles
Players: SPECIAL (see description)
Release Date: Jul 30, 2007
Publisher: Nintendo

Basic Gameplay

Each Picross DS puzzle has a sequence of numbers written in the margins of each column and each row. Those numbers show how many squares within that column or row need to be filled in.

Players must deduce which squares to fill in. Incorrect guesses earn a time penalty. If a player solves a puzzle in under one hour, they'll earn a bonus animation!

Sizes range from simple 5x5 puzzles to much more challenging 15x15 (and bigger!) grids. Players can create and swap puzzles with one another.


Additional Features

Creating your own puzzles is a snap! Design your puzzle by hand or draw any picture you like and convert it automatically into a Picross puzzle.

Picross DS automates the process and helps correct errors in your homemade puzzles!

Trade puzzles with friends using local wireless or Nintendo WFC or download free bonus puzzle packs.

Up to five friends can play in Picross-themed minigames over local wireless, or race to complete puzzles against other gamers on the Nintendo Wi-Fi Connection.

Daily Picross mode features a series of quick-play puzzle sets that players can return to day after day to test their skill over time.
