Critic Reviews for Picross S5
Even so, it’s clear that Jupiter Corporation has gotten its concept down to a science, and the addictive nature of these puzzles has never been more alluring. We’d give this a recommendation if you’re looking for a solid new puzzle game for your Switch, as the puzzle count and quality of the experience ensure that this is just about the best bang for your buck possible.
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.
Picross S5 is a simple title much like its predecessors. However, there is a certain charm to the experience, allowing for a relaxing journey for new and experienced players alike. Different modes and help settings offer the possibility to tailor the game to personal enjoyment, making this another great entry that can satisfy puzzle-lovers.
