Fill-a-Pix: Phil's Epic Adventure
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: Phil’s Epic Adventure is yet another brilliant logic-based puzzle game from Lightwood Games. Whether you like it or not may be hit or miss, but if you like Minesweeper and Sudoku then I’m sure you will learn to love this game as I did. Help Phil develop his holiday snaps as you solve over 100 puzzles, some of which took over 20 minutes to complete. There is a lot of content here to keep anyone busy, plus you get both the PS Vita and PS4 versions for one low price – what’s not to like!
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.
If you're looking for a casual puzzler that you can take on the go then Fill-a-Pix: Phil's Epic Adventure is worth checking out.
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.
Fill-a-Pix just didn’t cut it for me. While it’s nice to have a different change of pace from Lightwood after a lot of Word Search and Picross games in recent years, Fill-a-Pix reminds me a bit of the dreaded Nikoli puzzle game Slitherlink, in that it’s so damn complicated even with all the tutorials and such that it’s a bore to actually solve.
