Picross S7 Reviews
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!
As usual, Picross S7 shows the amount of dedication and quality work developer Jupiter put into its Picross S titles. The new touch control function is much appreciated, but this could generally do with a few more features to spice it up a little. However, for anyone enjoying a relaxing day of puzzles, this title comes highly recommended.
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.
You know you've really established something special when the name of your game becomes synonymous with all games within a given subgenre...
Picross S7 offers an addicting and content-rich experience for people who love logic puzzles. The main idea of Picross is explored through a varied selection of puzzles, with some modes that change the rules a little to bring more variety. The new touch controls make the matches really fast, though this option is a little imprecise in the larger puzzles. The lack of notable changes when compared to previous entries is a shame but its vast amount of content is enough to compensate the issue. Overall, Picross S7 is once again a solid entry in the series.

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.
