A fantastic puzzle game that is almost perfect on the Nintendo Switch.

Picross S is the epitome of a one-trick pony, it knows exactly the kind of experience it's going to deliver and it does just that. Those of you that loved the Picross e games will find plenty to love here, as this is essentially just another 300 (well, 150) puzzles, now with local multiplayer support. Still, it all comes off as being a bit bland, while the absence of Micross and mission systems seen elsewhere makes Picross S feel like a lazy sequel. We give this a recommendation to fans of puzzle games, or anybody looking for a slower paced game for their Switch. Just don't go into this one expecting a comprehensive, ultimate entry in the series.

The game's basis did not change and it's still Picross as everyone knows it but the lack of use of the touch screen and the absence of pointers when playing on a television screen could have made it a more pleasant experience. What makes Picross S more difficult to digest is the size of the game screen, which does not change compared to its predecessors, a decision that is unjustifiable.

Picross S A lazy version of Picross that offers nothing new compared to the 3DS versions, doesn't use the Switch properly, offers the same pictures in its two modes and offers very little with the multiplayer mode. Better go on 3DS.
