Critic Reviews for Picross S7
Other than that, it’s another few hundred nonogram puzzles just like the last several hundred nonogram puzzles. But who are we kidding, at least this one is, er, innovative in how it boldly introduces an all-new control scheme — one which, admittedly, returns from the (3)DS era of the long-running series. At this rate, we might even get HD rumble support in another four years when we get Picross S15. Imagine what that would feel like!
After all these years, I'm still a zealot for the Picross S (and its predecessors) even if innovation and evolution is slow paced. Seeing touchscreen support added after more than four years of Switch releases is great to see, and hopefully more upgrades and updates will come to Picross S8 and more in the future. Until then, here's almost 500 new puzzles that are at the same solid level of execution as the thousands Jupiter has made in the past.
It amazes me how the inclusion of a single feature can completely revamp a tried and true puzzle formula. Picross S7 is still more of the same, which isn’t exactly a bad thing for us nonogram addicts, but the long-awaited implementation of touch-based controls improves this particular sequel so much to the point of rendering its predecessors obsolete in comparison.
