Phil's Epic Fill-a-Pix Adventure for Nintendo 3DS
Fill-a-Pix: Phil's Epic Adventure is a solid puzzle game on PlayStation 4 that does a lot of things right and not much wrong. I has a lot of content, mixes Picross with Minesweeper and adds some extra twists on top, and is a delight to play on PlayStation 4. If you're into puzzles then you're going to love this one as you try and solve the dozens of puzzles it has to offer. Download it today!
Fill-a-Pix is disappointing even if Lightwood Games brings its puzzle game-making competency to it. It's packed with content, but it's hard to really care to do more of these slow, painstaking, and weirdly easy puzzles. I'd much rather dive back into Pic-a-Pix to play any new DLC they put out for it. In lieu of Fill-a-Pix, go buy Pic-a-Pix Deluxe.
Props to the folks at Lightwood Games for putting together something both familiar and different with Fill-a-Pix, it’s absolutely something different and the scale of the puzzles is pretty incredible… though at times intimidating as well. The implementation of the tools and helpers is both thoughtful and impressive, and really helps you keep from completely drowning as you contemplate the substantial grid of numbers and spaces everywhere. Help is always there if you need it, but if you’re insistent on doing it yourself you can always opt not to use it. If you love pixel puzzles and are up for a new challenge it’s well worth checking out.
