Picross e3 (3DS): COMPLETED!

picrosse3Ta dah! There’s not much to say, really. It’s more Picross and I completed it.

I have two things to mention, though. The first is about the length of the game – it’s a good 8 hours shorter than Picross e2 (and about an hour shorter than the original), which is a bit disappointing.

The other thing is the Mega Picross puzzles. I don’t like them. They’re like normal Picross puzzles, only the numbers sometimes – but not always – span two rows or columns. For the easier puzzles, that’s fine, but some – the final one especially – don’t seem to be possible without guesswork, or at least some pretty shaky assumptions. It just adds a level of complexity that is unnecessary and unneeded.

Still, I did enjoy it, despite these two issues. Roll on e4…

Picross e2 (3DS): COMPLETED!

picrosse2And finally, all the puzzles are solved. Phew!

According to the stats, I played it for over 21 hours, which is about 5 hours longer than its predecessor. Which is pretty much what I expected.

And, erm, that’s it. It’s great Picross game, just like the first one only bigger. In terms of value for money, £7 for over 20 hours play is pretty good going. It’s a shame there are no bigger puzzles as 15×15 is a bit small, but still – minor complaint.

So. Many. Puzzles!

I’m over half way through, I think – but that’s only in terms of the number of puzzles left. They’re bigger now. And take longer to complete. The first few I could do in 15 seconds, now some are 15 minutes. And that’s assuming I don’t mess it up and have to restart.
