As expected, Picross S5 is just a new batch of brand new puzzles (a total of 485). There is nothing really new, except a feature to see how much time you spent to complete each mode, but fans of this puzzle franchise won't care, they just need more grids. And they'll have them.

With 485 puzzles across a few different styles, it's filled with a lot of great, engaging content. It still has the same old issues, chiefly no touch screen controls, but the novelty of the co-op and the new tweaks like higher contrast colors are good accessibility inclusions. Whether you're a first-time Picross player or a weary nonogram veteran, Picross S5 is great.
