Be smart or you could be the target of a critical hit! - Having some issues with a specific puzzle? Head to the shop and spend some gold on powerful magic items. - Try to reach the end of the world map, one puzzle at a time. You'll find villagers giving you special missions, too!

If you're looking for a fun Picross title to play for an affordable price, PictoQuest has got you covered. While a bit too overbearing with its action elements, the new mechanics and tried-and-true Picross puzzles are sure to engage beginners and veterans alike.

PictoQuest is a nice mix between Picross puzzles and old-school RPG mechanics. But despite its lovely charm and big Picross grids, NanoPiko adventure should have aimed for a tiny bit of challenge, instead of taking every player by the hand.

PictoQuest is an endearing Picross-style RPG that might not offer the depth and breadth of similar Picross games, but it makes up for its simplicity with an adorable presentation and smartly-implemented RPG ideas. In some respects, it doesn't go all that far, but being based around what I'd term as a relaxing puzzle game, it doesn't really have to.

Picross veterans may be disappointed with PictoQuest's lack of challenge but there's no denying that it's a solid and cute little game.
