Picross on Nintendo DS

This is an entertaining little game on the Nintendo DS called Picross, here is what Picross is all about

Nonograms, also known as Hanjie, Picross or Griddlers, are picture logic puzzles in which cells in a grid must be colored or left blank according to numbers at the side of the grid to reveal a hidden picture. In this puzzle type, the numbers are a form of discrete tomography that measures how many unbroken lines of filled-in squares there are in any given row or column. For example, a clue of “4 8 3” would mean there are sets of four, eight, and three filled squares, in that order, with at least one blank square between successive groups.

These puzzles are often black and white, describing a binary image, but they can also be colored. If colored, the number clues are also colored to indicate the color of the squares. Two differently colored numbers may or may not have a space in between them. For example, a black four followed by a red two could mean four black boxes, some empty spaces, and two red boxes, or it could simply mean four black boxes followed immediately by two red ones.

Nonograms have no theoretical limits on size, and are not restricted to square layouts.

Picross Mode allows players to create their very own puzzles to challenge or share with friends. Once you create your puzzles they can be shared using the Nintendo DS wireless connectivity or the Wi-Fi Connection service.

There is a multiplayer mode, in multiplayer mode up to five players can compete against each other and the clock to finish puzzles first in Multi-Picross Mode.
