I love me some Picross and here you get another load of puzzles. It’s a simple layout, a handful of Picross modes are just spins on the classic mode. Not much can be said really outside of its picross and plays really well.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
