Such a fun game really enjoy it
This game is the worse
by Pooper hoo Look fo apps on 2020/04/08 03:06
The easiest level is so hard you don’t know how to complete it, I had one and I had every one of the rows completed except one how is that even possible?

Best cross pic puzzle game I’ve found. No unnecessary ads and the puzzles are great
Should be more generous during quarantine!
by :) :) :) :) :) :D :D :D on 2020/04/07 13:36
I love this game and I kept wondering why I deleted it before. So I downloaded it again and now I know why. As you advance, puzzles need more tokens. At first whenever I finish a puzzle lots of them gave tokens as a reward but now I only receive coins. And for the daily rewards i can’t watch an ad to double my reward anymore. I can only play one puzzle or two daily! And speaking of ads at first it wasn’t so bad, but now the ads are long and I have to watch the whole thing!! Not sure how long I’ll be able to keep playing it. Trying to be patient!! They should be more generous with their tokens during this hard time and not being able to leave the house!
Ads have gotten ridiculous!!
by flamethrower1987 on 2020/04/07 03:28
Now I’m forced to watch a 30sec or longer ad just to see if I’ve gotten a free play by watching another 30 sec or longer ad. Go back to making it possible to skip ads between puzzles! Other than that game is awesome!
Satisfying
by LibbyWB on 2020/04/06 23:36
I am really enjoying this app. It can be challenging but very satisfying to work on and complete.
Great game. Needs more puzzles
by Only 1 fix on 2020/04/06 04:25
Love this game so much. It just doesn’t keep the puzzles coming. Wish there were more

Nice game
Love the game, but .....
by krusti101 on 2020/04/03 20:13
Fun to play, but eventually you will have to buy tokens. Was able to but 1500 for $10. However the cost of playing each individual game increased from 5 to over 20 tokens. I ran out of tokens halfway thru and the cost was 20+ tokens per game. So playing an entire game (400 puzzles) would cost $30. I would rather pay a subscription fee than get roped into something that wanted me keep opening my wallet. Kinda like a rope a dope or bait and switch.
More puzzles

Hey picture cross add some more theme puzzle packs don’t remove them I mean it
A bit confusing at first, but fun!
by Dragon Spirit123 on 2020/04/02 01:25
At the beginning, even after the Toto Uriel, it was a little hard. But it’s a really fun game once you get the hang of it.
Never got to play
by Chili bean14 on 2020/04/02 01:09
The app stalls out during the tutorial and won’t let you get past it. Never got to actually play.
Comfy&chilling game
by godmima on 2020/04/01 13:42
I’ve been playing a lot of games due to Covid virus but this is the best app so far. I love the BGM and effect sound. I love the dote pixel images too Absolutely love it
Great Game! Just completed EVERY level!
by JMOsborne829 on 2020/04/01 04:35
I’ve been playing this game for several months now. I just finished the last puzzle! I have accumulated over 260,000 coins! Highly recommend :)
BEWARE The Spam Will Haunt You
by Winniepoo95 on 2020/04/01 02:26
Game play was good, no complaints on the actual puzzles themselves. But first. So. Many. Ads. But more annoyingly you need tokens to open new puzzles. Some are cheap but others are pricey. So, if you’re unwilling to pay for more tokens, eventually you’re going to need to find a way to get a lot of tokens. Well they offer all these ways to get tokens. BEWARE though because the spam from the free token stuff is Super Annoying. I did some of the free quiz stuff and I kid you not the next day I had 13 spam calls that started promptly at 9am. I deleted the app a week ago because it’s not worth it, but the spam calls are still rolling in, and I’m registered on that national No Spam list thing. But I counted and I’ve had 42 spam calls since I was successfully tempted by the offer of free tokens. I recommend Nonogram. It just lets you play the game without nearly as much hassle.
Great app, passes the time
by a-fangirl on 2020/03/31 21:44
This app is really cool. There’s lots of puzzles and the variety is cool. Only grip the token system- convert coins into tokens, please.
Like the game too many tokens to play
by J$e$n$z on 2020/03/31 16:28
I am really enjoying this game, lots of different levels and pictures. The only thing I don’t like is that it cost a lot of tokens to play each one, and it keeps going up as you get closer to finishing a level. The game will refill up to 10 tokens and you get a few tokens by logging in every day but it can cost up to 40 tokens to play 1 puzzle.
Energy
by kdoughton on 2020/03/31 06:11
LOVE THE GAME. Best picture cross, but only being able to play 2-4 levels a day towards the end of maps is excessive.
I just wish......
by WoodysMom4 on 2020/03/31 02:35
Please, please, please make a way to buy tokens with coins. Then this game would be perfect. I'm almost out of puzzles
Very addicting but glitchy
by Fgtrdsj on 2020/03/30 11:24
I’m obsessed with this game, it’s really fun. But you can only play if you have enough tokens for a game and most cost more than the 10 they give you. There are occasional bonuses and you can watch some ads for more. You can also spend a lot of coins to redo a puzzle to earn a couple tokens. This is TEDIOUS if you don’t like doing puzzles over and over. It takes a really long time to go through levels OR you spend a lot of real money. There is no one time fee for the game and no subscription. It’s just buy tokens as you go or play a couple games and then wait for recharges of 10 tokens. The glitches come on with the Daily Rewards. I’ve never gotten rewards on Day 5, and then the next day it starts me over on Day 1 rewards. There have been other random rewards or bonuses that have not been given. I also don’t like that you have to tap every unfinished puzzle to find out it’s token cost. Scanning through the picture of puzzles every time to find a puzzle I can “afford” with my tokens is super annoying. I’d give the game 5 stars for fun, but the problems I listed above bring it down. Every day these things are more annoying and I will likely delete the app before long.
Fun, but money hungry
by KalikoRibbon on 2020/03/30 07:28
I love picross, and I love the way you solve puzzles to reveal a big picture in this app. But this game takes forever. There are ads after every puzzle, which I almost wouldn’t mind, they need to make money. The real problem is they give you way too few login coins. You can just about play one puzzle a day, and are lucky to get a chance to watch an ad to play a new puzzle. I’ve had this game almost a year now, logging in to pick up coins daily, and am only now about to complete the whole first puzzle. Replaying puzzles is not worth the tokens it gives, so half the time it doesn’t really feel like I’m playing the game. It makes me sad, because I do actually like it otherwise.

Soooooo much fun
My credits
by Black Diamond 2019 on 2020/03/27 19:09
I actually like the game but it would be even better if every time I purchase I would not have to call apple. I just spent $10 for 1000 tokens and that’s been 2 days ago and I still have not received my tokens it makes me so upset that I want to delete the game.
Increased ads
by terminat0r97 xbox live on 2020/03/27 06:31
They have increased the ads within the last month. Now almost every ad I get is an unskippable 30 second one and it’s not even giving me coins for these. Used to I could close out after about 5 or 10 seconds but now I’m forced to watch the whole thing.
Lost everything
by thisgirlisaprincess on 2020/03/26 19:38
I have been playing this game for over a year now and my phone restarted everything so when I went to go back to this game I lost everything and had to start over. Really disappointed it’s connected to Game Center but doesn’t have like an account to link everything to. Over a year of daily play gone.
One of my favorite games
by pich313 on 2020/03/26 19:25
This game is so addictive and offers so many levels to make it more challenging as you figure out more was to solve the puzzles. I got my wife addicted to it as well. It’s perfect for winding down at the end of the day and for waiting rooms, etc.
By far the longest ads! Ruins an otherwise Great Game
by Warriorturtle on 2020/03/26 17:18
I actually really enjoy this game, it's fun, and presents a nice little challenge while you're passing the time! However, I don't play it as often as I want, or could because the ad experience ruins it, there is an ad between every puzzle, and sometimes when you're choosing a puzzle. Furthermore, the ads are longer than I've experienced in any other game with the average length in excess of 180 seconds, without the option to skip/close early like most other games allow! I like to play it while I'm trying to kill a few minutes, but I end up watching an ad, and no longer have time!! Fix this and it's easily a 5-Star App!
Must pay for content
by Why would I tell you my name?? on 2020/03/26 02:17
For starters, the pictures are nonsense. I have no idea what I’m looking at 90% of the time. Which isn’t a huge deal. But they always reward you with yellow coins, which are for hints. They never give you enough green coins to “buy” new games. So I ran out of coins. There are supposedly ways to get the green coins through advertisements but the game never gives them to me even when I complete them! Good concept, but I’ll get it somewhere for less work. Thanks.
Color
by Christianpaige82 on 2020/03/25 15:58
When making the puzzle, it would be cooler if it was in color so you could see the picture you’re making. I have no idea what I’m making! It would be cooler if you could tell when there’s a mistake because the picture looks wrong. Make it for vivid. It would be nice if there were clues of what the picture was going to be. It is very addicting!
Overall pretty good but has so big downsides
by 24maddy on 2020/03/25 06:02
I overall love the game and are addicted to playing it. Only the problems I have with are some of great concern. First, the games level systems are completely weird, sometimes I’ll play an easy level which would end up being harder than a medium level and medium and hard levels are pretty much the same thing. Second, occasionally when I get my daily tokens, it just doesn’t give them to me. This especially happens when it is at the bigger rewards. Take today, I go to get my daily tokens, the screen pops up and I press collect, the screen goes away and I haven’t gotten my tokens. This really is a problem as tokens are the only way to play a level. Third, the levels cost way more tokens the. The. The app gives us, without having to resort to paying with real money. As you go through the levels the start to cost more to play, so even go as high as 60 tokens, this usually wouldn’t be a problem for games but in this one it is because they only refill your tokens to 10. You have to find ways to gain the extra 50 tokens. As someone who can’t afford to pay for more, collecting that many could take a pretty long time for just one level. Even with all it’s downsides I wouldn’t stop playing the game. I just wish they would fix them so I can have more of a good time, instead of a stressful one while playing.
Need more puzzles
by MattNessaJackBay on 2020/03/25 03:50
I LOVE this game!!! The only problem is that I’ve completed all of the puzzles (yes I’m a little obsessed!). Please add more... I especially love the color puzzles!!!
3/5
by sara2015harris on 2020/03/24 16:41
I absolutely love this game. I could play it for hours on end. And I have a couple of times. The only thing holding me back is tokens. Half the time I need more than 10 tokens and that’s all you can earn. When I try to watch ads to earn tokens it says there are no videos to see. I’d like to see either the price of each puzzle go down in tokens. Because i go days without playing sometimes because it doesn’t always offer me tokens for watching ads. Or just go without the tokens and use the coins instead. I have plenty of coins on this game that are wasting away because most of the time I don’t need clues. I really hope this is helpful because I feel like I’m at the end of my road with this game because I just can’t make up the tokens I need to keep playing.
Same puzzles
by Nonnie2016 on 2020/03/24 16:01
I finished “The World’s Biggest Puzzle” and started “After Dark” and they are the exact same puzzles! It is frustrating that you have to spend coins to get tokens. On another app they give you the “chance” to get tokens. It gives you 3 gift boxes to choose from, letting you see what is in the boxes, and then mixing them up. Then it gives you another chance to get open another box “IF” you watch an ad.
Love the game
by Vannahvannah on 2020/03/23 14:17
Spend too much money but I have a job so I can spend it how I want. Hope they make more boards soon as working from home I have done a lot of them.

Good, but one big problem
by dotelstotels on 2020/03/23 01:58
I love the fact that this game has so many unique pictures and that there are different puzzles that you combine to make one big picture. But one of my biggest problems is the fact that you don’t have the option to give you 3 mistakes and you’re out. The fact that I don’t have the option to correct your mistakes makes the game way more confusing and I can’t even pass a medium level because of it. If you could give us the option for the game to correct our mistakes, I bet I could turn these 3 stars into 5 stars. Thank you for listening to my reply.
Tokens
by 771771771777272727272717 on 2020/03/22 02:40
After replaying several puzzles to earn enough tokens to do my last 50 token puzzle, I had something like 27 tokens. I closed the app and came back a few hours later to find the app took the tokens, and now I only have 10 tokens again. Why? Watching advertisements to earn tokens also doesn’t work. Greedy developer doesn’t give a fair chance to play unless you are willing to spend money or sign up for junk.
My favorite
by Sign2sing on 2020/03/21 15:07
I really like this game. I think it has helped improved my logical thinking and planning ahead skills
Fun but...
by hvamom on 2020/03/20 18:18
So, I’m not the sort of person to buy a game. I’ll try it and I enjoyed it. The thing is, there could be some sort of reward if you solve a puzzle without any help, like some more tokens! I am on the very last puzzle of my picture and even though I solved the next to last puzzle without any help, I can’t solve the final one because I don’t have enough tokens. I have lots of coins but I can’t use those to solve the puzzle. The game is fun and I enjoy doing a few every evening to unwind from the day.
Amazing! Need more levels & tokens
by Erbbbpop126598 on 2020/03/20 18:06
I love this game!! I've completed all the levels & now I don’t know what to do with myself. They’re plenty of levels but I need more!! Also, it’s so hard to get tokens, especially because it only automatically loads to 10 tokens even tho you need 45 for some levels. So they should def make it easier to get tokens. Again, love this game it’s so fun!!
Just one problem
by loveydovey12321232 on 2020/03/20 00:15
I mean I like the game,but what’s up with the hearts.Just because I get three wrong doesn’t mean I have to watch a ad for one it’s just unfair.Well that’s it sorry for this review
Only Good for Small Sessions
by Doomkeaper on 2020/03/19 21:33
Let me start out by saying the game itself is very solid. The puzzles are good and range a lot in difficulty. I have had a lot of fun playing. That said, this game has a fatal flaw that makes it only playable for about 10-15min a day. You will eventually hit a point where the puzzles cost more of the tokens than the game actually allows you to accumulate for free. 10 tokens is the max you can earn without the daily token reward, purchasing more, or watching a 30-45sec advertisement. More than half the puzzles in each collection cost 11+ tokens to unlock. I now only pay this game once in the morning with the daily tokens payout because paying for tokens would be ridiculous with how many other free games just like this exist. If you just want 1-3 daily puzzles to play for a short period, then this is fine for you to get your fix. However, if you want this to be a puzzle game you can play continuously, then be prepared to fork out money to play because it is impossible to earn enough tokens to even play some puzzles without paying or waiting for your next daily token payout.
It’s just a preview app. Need to pay to get far after couple days
by Sripathi1 on 2020/03/19 19:20
Tokens tokens tokens for everything. I’ll probably increase my rating if I find any use of the coins especially converting them to tokens
My favorite
by yumechinchinko on 2020/03/19 07:02
I’ve played hundreds of hours of this game because it’s amazing but I wld love to see data transfer onto different devices!!!
Its fun, but you will pay if you want to beat it.
by Hodjo Kosan on 2020/03/18 23:28
I guess if you only do 1 or 2 puzzles a day, the daily rewards might keep you breaking even, but I played much more than that, and have had to pay for tokens to keep playing. You can also do puzzles over again for more tokens but you can get like max 5 tokens per repeat and some puzzles cost 30+. Ive spent 20 bucks on it so far, and I know thats a lot but I am fine with that, but I know some others won’t be, so I’m just putting this out there.
BEST EVER
by tmsugg on 2020/03/18 22:06
This is the best nonogram around! So much fun but doesn’t give enough tockens so I can’t play as much as I want
by Hmh16 on 2020/03/17 22:18
i seriously adore this game. i’ve done every single puzzle and finished the game already because it’s so calming to do. i like the challenge and i love this app. i can’t wait for new levels!
Amazing game.
by FPM on 2020/03/17 17:52
One of the best puzzle games I’ve ever found.
Difficulty
by Lissy_31 on 2020/03/17 14:09
The game is great in all but it is so hard. Even some of the easy levels are extremely hard. The game is either to hard or I am too stupid. Good game though.
The reason why
by trekay russrich on 2020/03/17 14:05
They over price most of the levels
Great game; if only it was playable!
by JDY1960 on 2020/03/17 13:57
I would pay a few dollars for this game, but not a few dollars per day! Game play is very good but it’s such an obvious money grab I had to give up. Daily loyalty reward tokens are only enough for a few games if that! Instead of staying at the maximum reward, on day eight you go back to receiving the minimum reward of 10 tokens which isn’t even enough for one puzzle. What’s worse is that a puzzle that cost “x” amount of tokens one day, and you wait to play it the next when you have enough tokens, magically then cost even more! It’s a shame.
Addictive and really fun!
by Moellerfam on 2020/03/16 22:50
It’s super fun and addicting and I really enjoy solving the games. The one thing that’s annoying is that the ‘tokens’ regenerate SO slowly. I would play so much more if there was a way to earn tokens faster. I ended up with more than 20 THOUSAND coins and I always have to wait for tokens. After completing a game, there should be a reward of more tokens than coins.
Best game ever!! But... 😰
by The Tree Outside on 2020/03/16 16:31
I love this game so much! I listen to audiobooks and play this game daily. It is so relaxing, I love how each puzzle pack is so different and fun. But I hate how the green coins only restore up to 10 at a time. Once you unlock all the puzzles in a pack, you have to either watch ads or use coins and play old completed puzzles to get at max 3 green coins, which is dumb. The daily reward is nice but it does help unlock that much. I wish either your green coins could restore to more (20 or 30) or all puzzles costed 10 green coins. PLEASE FIX THIS!!! You could make it as an upgrade system, letting people spend their coins to have the green coins restore to more each time or something. Thanks!
Hard paywall
by Leftover Taco on 2020/03/16 14:18
It’s pretty scummy for them to cap the number of tokens at 10 and then make levels that cost more than that. I love this game but jesus christ to finish the entire game would put me in debt from buying extra tokens!
Day 5 tokens
by Snow queen59 on 2020/03/16 14:08
I don’t understand why when you open the app every day it often rolls back to day 1. I would think the incentive to play daily you would on day 5 continue to receive day 5 tokenswhen you play day 6 or ongoing. But even if it is day 4 I find the next day often it’s day 1 tokens given. It’s Odd. Don’t find it consistent.
Love it but..
by ayreona grix on 2020/03/15 18:35
I absolutely love this game however I was half way through the first world and the entire game restarted 😡 now every time I do more than 10 puzzles on it it restarts and makes me do everything over again.
Addicting game
by two j's one g on 2020/03/15 13:14
So addicted
Love this game, except the token system
by Your Little Blonde Friend on 2020/03/14 20:04
This is one of my favorite games. I’ve played it for a while and it’s one of the few games I play every day. I can’t remember a time where I had technical difficulties or other issues. It’s consistently fun. My only issue is the token system. You need tokens to unlock the puzzles. The max amount of tokens that load over time is 10, which isn’t enough to play most puzzles. The daily rewards help, but even they aren’t always enough (unless you opened the app to receive the reward and then didn’t actually play any puzzles). You can also watch ads to get a token at a time, but only up to 8 per day. There’s “tasks” you can do through Tapjoy to get tokens, but there have been times when I’ve completed a task and not received tokens for it, so I’d say the Tapjoy stuff is a waste of time. You also get a prize for each puzzle you solve, but you receive coins the majority of the time. Coins can only be spent on hints. As I’ve gotten better at these puzzles I’ve ceased needing hints; I currently have 100k or so coins in my bank that I don’t plan on using. Rarely do you receive tokens as a prize. I get that this system drives revenue, but it seems excessively skewed towards needing to make a purchase. I wish that you could spend coins on tokens, that there were other ways to earn more than a few tokens, and/or the max loaded tokens was 20 or 30 (rather than 10). I’ve spent money on this game—I’m happy to do so occasionally to support developers of games I really enjoy. But I would have a lot more fun if the tokens weren’t so hard to get.

Picture cross is amazing!
by Davis Grozinger on 2020/03/14 15:16
Picture cross is the best game ever! It helps me strengthen my brain and my eyesight. There are so many different puzzles to choose from and that is awesome! But I request one thing, and it is that you either shorten the time between the one token you get every 5 minutes, or increase the amount of tokens you get each 5 minutes. But other than that, this game is my savior when it comes to me being bored! Thank you for making this game!
No cross saves
by girb0t on 2020/03/13 23:40
If you purchase on your iPad to get rid of ads, it won’t carry over to your iPhone. Progress doesn’t carry over either!

Great Puzzle Game, No Ads
by Djsjsisix on 2020/03/13 06:56
I play this religiously, it’s an infinite source of puzzles.
Lots of ads, need more coins
by aquariusangel128 on 2020/03/11 22:36
I see the same ad. Every time it is crazy. Can you please update algorithm or whatever!! The game itself is fine. It is annoying you only have ten coins at a time and most puzzles are more than that. There is also a glitch with the timer right now so whenever I use or earn coins the timer restarts which is really annoying.
Really like but here’s a suggestion
by Satlo on 2020/03/11 17:25
I really enjoy playing these puzzles but I think it would be neat to award something for completing a whole puzzle set. To finish all 100 or 400 in a pack is a pretty good accomplishment. 😊
Almost perfect
by I'm leaving this review on 2020/03/11 04:34
I pretty much never use my coins because I consider myself pretty good at this game and other apps like this. Because of this I have over 100,000 coins, yet the green tokens are way harder to earn. I would absolutely LOVE to be able to play this game longer than one or two puzzles before I run out of tokens. If I could use my coins to get levels or honestly free levels with all the ads that you still have would be PERFECT (so take away the green token system) Also daily levels puzzle block would be very much fun as well. My main issue is the fact I can’t play endlessly until I decide to stop like other games.
Love! Love! Love!

I find myself playing this game every chance I get! The different level puzzles really make you think and use your head! I’ve completed so many puzzles, my coinage is way up there. With that being said, I’ve found the rewards for the puzzles are mostly coins rather than tokens. The max amount of tokens is 10. Most of the puzzles cost more than 10 tokens. The daily reward does consist of tokens but it’s 15 max and that’s after day 4. I have so many coins i don’t know what to do with them, because I like to try not to use a hint unless necessary. Personally being able to buy more tokens with the coins I have collected in the game would be a major bonus. The +1 free token with the view of an advert only gets you so far because there’s 2 videos max most times. The tokens is the only issue I have with this game other than the lack of tokens I receive within a day, I absolutely love this game!
I love it but need to tweaked a little
by Kittychics on 2020/03/10 13:34
Ive been playing this game for years! It’s one of my favorite games to play on road trips. However, I would like a daily puzzle thing. Just to spice things up. Also, maybe need to be able to watch videos for coins and not just tokens.
Love it, but
by Eminico on 2020/03/10 02:04
I love the game, but I’ve maxed out all the levels and there’s no new ones yet. Trying to be patient and wait for more, but these are by far my favorite type of puzzle and the best app I’ve seen of them.
Amazing game
by sergusB on 2020/03/10 02:00
A nice fun and simple game with a nice interface and design.
Addictive
by green piggy on 2020/03/09 23:41
I love this game. I am playing it during my commute to work everyday. One suggestion I have for you is to add an undo button.

Honestly, I love absolutely everything about the game! However, if there was a way to change coins into tokens, that would be great, as I don’t need the hints. Also, maybe fewer ads in between puzzles would be great! I would definitely recommend this to everyone!
Good game, irritating monitization
by Urzathran on 2020/03/09 17:15
What was originally just irritating has been “updated” to the point I won’t be playing. Ads used to be skippable unless you wanted a reward. Now you get the full 30 second ad after every level. While still less than a lot of free apps, it has crossed the line for me. Gameplay itself is still excellent.
I love this game!!!!
by tigger21678 on 2020/03/09 13:13
I absolutely love this game!! Please add more puzzles!
Pay or Ads to play
by Knitler 2.0 on 2020/03/09 03:18
It’s fun at first because they give you plenty of tokens to play but eventually you have to either pay for more or complete offers to get more tokens. On top of that, there’s an ad after every game. Overall, the game itself is made well but long term I would just find a different app like this one.
The only Nonogram I’ll play!
by kateord on 2020/03/09 01:56
I will wait for a new puzzle pack before playing any other Nonograms. The puzzles are hard, but not so hard that you can’t have fun! I’ve spent hours playing and I’ll spend more time playing!
Great game
by Fun five on 2020/03/08 15:42
Not enough tokens available for free. Can’t solve puzzles without tokens
Mind enhancement!
by TI local on 2020/03/08 13:59
As fun, and challenging, as this game is,, the main reason I play it is to try to stave off ALS! They say keeping your brain active is a good way to do that,, and this game definitely does that! Thanks! After playing almost all of the boards, the game started acting up,, freezing up, and kicking you out of the app. The "help" section advises you to close the app, and reload it, to fix the problem. I did. It lost all the progress I had! Then, when I started all over, with the "tutorial", it froze up again! I'm done! There are other apps of this type!
Great game but....
by The demo is really on 2020/03/07 21:50
It’s a great game, super laid back and once you buy some coins all the ads going away it makes the game so much better. BUT the pay wall to complete a puzzle is super huge, it takes a ton of money if you want to play constantly. Definitely gotta pace yourself
Can’t collect green coins fast enough
by Lotsa$$$ on 2020/03/07 15:17
It takes too long to collect enough green coins to open the puzzles. There should be a way to buy the green coins with the other coins you earn in the game. I’ve got a lot of the regular coins and all I know that you can do with those is open previously played puzzles. If I’ve already done the puzzle once, I don’t want to solve it again.
Its great but
by Mr. Youdontneedtoknowmyname on 2020/03/07 04:41
I like the consept but i want a new mode in the settings, its life mode. You get three lifes in each picture and if you get a square wrong than you lose a life. Sorry this review is short i have nothing else to say.

Have you ever thought about using digits showing puzzle price rather than locks on individual puzzles? One of the biggest annoyances my adult daughter and I discuss. I’ve really gotten far and my below concern is no longer my issue; I still do not spend real dollars. 3/5/20 All my available puzzles are over 11 tokens. I WILL not spend real dollars on any game, but I NEVER receive the ability to watch ads to play a game. I used to get them occasionally but I’m almost ready to delete the game as I have to keep re-playing others just to get a couple tokens to do a new. Not to mention I have to watch an ad any time you leave a screen, why not provide a token each time that happens. I don’t know the fix but it’s Just getting old! (Date unknown)
Fun fun fun

Currently My Favorite Puzzle
by dxturn07 on 2020/03/05 10:01
I have been playing this puzzle game for over a year, but I have never gotten bored. If you want to make the game more of a challenge, you can even try to solve puzzles without using the Xs. If you want a new challenge, I think you will love Picture Cross!
Still Love It
by me_art on 2020/03/05 01:10
I don’t play games much, but I need something for the long commute to work. I mostly read news and I pay this game. After a year on it I still like it and play it. Definitely give this a try!
Absolutely horrible

I personally love puzzles
Not iPod friendly
by LeafyBFDI on 2020/03/04 16:56
I’ve tried this game, and found out about “alternate” mode which is useful for small screens. It doesn’t even tell me how it works! So how am I supposed to play then? I keep making mistakes because the square I’m trying to touch doesn’t get touched but the one next it gets you do Ed.
Awesome game
by oughjjjjii on 2020/03/04 01:45
All I can say is.....this game is awesome!!!!
Fantastic game!
by Cman96 on 2020/03/03 16:23
My ONLY complaint is that there’s one puzzle in the “Paris- Color” pack that is faulty and physically impossible to solve. Otherwise, I love the game. Constantly adding puzzles! Been playing for months!
Good game, scammed me out of money though
by DouglyOG on 2020/03/03 00:41
First off, the game is absolutely great. It’s challenging, yet not too challenging to where you want to give up. It has kept me entertained for hours. I went to watch an ad to get my 250 coins for some help on a puzzle, and there were no ads available so I went ahead and purchased the $10 coin pack. My purchase went through, but I have yet to receive my coins....very disappointed in that. It may only be $10, but I received nothing from that purchase. Please make this right if you could, thanks.
Great game
by The Queen 011 on 2020/03/02 16:46
I love this game. 💕. Thank you so much for the recent update. Love it so much I have almost completed one of the new puzzles. Hope to see you add more puzzles more often. Now you just need to add some “color” puzzles. Thank you for the awesome game experience.
Challenging time killer

Ads are loud even when muted
by Anonykegs on 2020/03/02 05:40
When phone is muted and sound/fx are off, ads still play with volume.
Amazing! I don’t know how they do it.
by ddkemp on 2018/11/01 15:32
What’s so amazing? Well, I’ve played hundreds of these “nonogram” type puzzles, and it seems, eventually, you’ll find a puzzle in a series that you will be forced to use a clue or two in order to solve the puzzle. In Picture Cross, I completed every one of the summer puzzles without ever needing a clue! That doesn’t mean I didn’t have to start over from scratch a few times; I’m not saying I don’t make plenty of errors, but when I patiently went back and reworked the puzzles (often more than a few times!) I found I could complete every one of the puzzles from the simplest to the trickiest without resorting to any kind of clue whatsoever! That, to me, puts this game way above all others in this category. The only change I would like to see is for the Xs (that you put in the squares) to be either much thinner or greatly toned down to like a 30% value. The bold dark brown Xs as they stand are just a bit too distracting. It would be nice too if we could change the color of the boxes as well. Brown is…well…brown. But my thanks to the developers for making this game so enjoyable, challenging, and somehow always solvable*. *well, as far as I’ve gone, this is what I’ve found to be the case, anyway. Edit: I’ve now completed the “winter” puzzle and still have had no need to resort to the use of hints.
Great game!
by l.j.t.n.m.m on 2020/01/02 07:19
For a while, I found these types of games almost impossible to do because I just had a hard time learning strategies to use while playing them, but now that I know a few tricks I absolutely love them! This one in particular because there are so many that range from super easy to super hard and you can just play forever.. That is if you have enough tokens, which is one of my minor complaints about this game. You can earn hundreds of coins in a short amount of time, but hardly any tokens which you need to unlock each puzzle. It’s kind of annoying because I would play these all day but I constantly run out of tokens and have to wait until the next day for the daily reward or watch a bunch of ads for one token each and you can only watch 8 ads per day as a way to earn tokens. There’s packages you can buy but I play free games because they’re free, not so I can spend money. Especially with how fast the tokens go. The puzzles don’t all cost the same amount of tokens to unlock so they can go pretty quick. So I just open the game every day and earn my tokens to save up for a bit and then play until I run out, and then do the same thing over again. Other than that I love it! If you like these types of puzzle games then you’d really enjoy this game.
Overall pretty good but has so big downsides
by 24maddy on 2020/03/25 06:02
I overall love the game and are addicted to playing it. Only the problems I have with are some of great concern. First, the games level systems are completely weird, sometimes I’ll play an easy level which would end up being harder than a medium level and medium and hard levels are pretty much the same thing. Second, occasionally when I get my daily tokens, it just doesn’t give them to me. This especially happens when it is at the bigger rewards. Take today, I go to get my daily tokens, the screen pops up and I press collect, the screen goes away and I haven’t gotten my tokens. This really is a problem as tokens are the only way to play a level. Third, the levels cost way more tokens the. The. The app gives us, without having to resort to paying with real money. As you go through the levels the start to cost more to play, so even go as high as 60 tokens, this usually wouldn’t be a problem for games but in this one it is because they only refill your tokens to 10. You have to find ways to gain the extra 50 tokens. As someone who can’t afford to pay for more, collecting that many could take a pretty long time for just one level. Even with all it’s downsides I wouldn’t stop playing the game. I just wish they would fix them so I can have more of a good time, instead of a stressful one while playing.
My favorite game in the App Store!
by nextalpha7d on 2019/09/29 20:23
Apple user since 08 but have never left a review so here we go... I have had this game since May 2018. It is September 2019 and I’ve done over 1500 of the puzzles, never using any real money to play. I’ve seen a lot of people complain about having to buy tokens. With enough patience it’s possible but I do have to agree that the tokens to coin ratio is a bit of a smudge on an otherwise phenomenal game. Right now I’m sitting on over 105,000 coins and have completed all of the packs but like 2 of them but now I’m to the point where I can do one puzzle a day most days and that’s really disappointing, unless I open one a day and then don’t actually play for about a week. I appreciate the daily prizes and the doubles for watching the videos, but on the Paris and New York packs, you have so few 10 tokens or below, it takes you months to get enough tokens to cover them all. I have to say, I enjoy the color ones even more than the black and white one and I hope you guys release more of those levels. You guys have done a great job with this game, and I’m not sure what’s different about this game in comparison to the other nonogram games, but this is my favorite. Keep creating more level and I will continue to keep playing!
Overall bad
by K-daWg#5 on 2019/06/03 04:45
I love playing nonograms. I would consider myself to be extremely good at it. I play them 24/7. Actually playing the game itself is fun. It’s just everything else that isn’t. The whole solve one nonogram to unlock the a part of the puzzle seems fine, and I can understand why some people like it. But I personally don’t, and it’s hard to zoom in on a certain piece you want to do. I would try and zoom in and accidentally press a piece I didn’t want to do and accidentally use my tokens to play it. I would much prefer have levels instead. Tokens itself are bad. For some levels, there’s a timer to see how long it takes you to finish the puzzle and you will use that amount of tokens for how long it takes you to finish. The “pause”button isn’t even a pause button. It’s literally the button that looks like the settings. The only way you know it’s the pause button is because it says pause at the top. The puzzles are deceptive. I would consider “hard” levels to be super hard. Most puzzles force you to buy hints too. You look at a puzzle at every single angle and there’s literally not even one move you can make without having to buy a hint. It forces you to use coins. The game mechanics could be a lot better too. I could keep going on and say at least 8 more problems but I feel like I’ve gone far enough. There’s definitely better nonogram games you can get.
So obsessed
by Abby021202 on 2019/02/21 20:03
I dont usually write reviews, and by usually I mean never this is the first one I’m writing, but it said to write a review if I’m enjoying the game, and I’m really enjoying the game. I don’t even know how long I’ve had this game but I absolutely love it. I didn’t think that a puzzle game would ever not be boring, but somehow I’ve never gotten bored of it. I love how the packs are themed and it makes a big picture that goes together. I’m really surprised that I’ve had this game for so long, I usually get bored of games within a week but according to the stats thing I’ve spent almost four full days in the game. The ads aren’t even that bad, you can skip them after 5 seconds. I usually get really annoyed by ads but they aren’t bad. I really like how you can watch ads for one puzzle, but I wish the option came up more often. I wish it were easier to get tokens too but then I guess it would be boring because you could do them all at once. This is a lot longer than I intended it to be but basically, this is a GREAT game, and I’m obsessed. The only downside is I have to wait for tokens which is why I’m writing this but I’m not complaining about the tokens, it makes sense. I guess that’s it. Awesome game!
Good but needs a few improvements
by Styrojake on 2018/05/15 14:15
First let me start off by saying I absolutely love this game. It’s challenging so it keeps me occupied but it’s not impossible to beat which is how a game should be so good job on that. I do have just a couple of suggestions for improvement though. 1) I think it would be great if y’all could add a way to zoom in or something because on my phone the squares are really really small so it’s easy to accidentally tap the wrong one. 2) I think that for playing levels you should earn tokens more often instead of coins because the game requires tokens to keep playing and coins are only used for hints, which I never use. I have like 16,000 coins and hardly any tokens, which is aggravating because I never use coins. Or something y’all could do instead is make a way to buy tokens with in game coins that you’ve earned so that I can actually use my coins. 3) There are a few too many advertisements. Every time you click on something in the game it brings up an advertisement so I think that if there are going to be that many advertisements there should be a reward for watching them. Overall though this is a really great game and I really love it, I just think it could use a couple improvements.
Money Hog! 🐷
by Silver Garnet on 2019/09/28 12:29
Waaaay too token orientated with limited options for getting tokens without payment!!! Asking for money ALL the time !!!! A complete turnoff!!!!! Sure, you get some free tokens per day, but these are hardly enough to play even one game! You can watch ads for a few more tokens, but again, may not be enough to add up to playing a game! Although they offer ways to get tokens free by completing some vendor ad requirements- I've tried some of these & I NEVER received my tokens- so it was a waste of my time!!! All this particular game is designed to do it tease you with a little, so that you become a buying machine for tokens!!!! BUY, BUY, BUY MORE TOKENS!!!!! This is the mantra of this game!!! It's Especially irritating when you finally have enough tokens saved up for a game & the puzzle turns out to be a simple one!!! I enjoyed this game in the beginning, the designs are cute, BUT NOW ITS a TURNOFF. The coins are useless & serve no purpose for me, & you can't turn them into tokens- which are the only thing you can use to buy a puzzle! The tokens are too hard to get without payment, & even if you have tokens, the amount needed to open a puzzle is ridiculous!!! Frankly, there are too many other choices out there for pixal logic puzzles that don't have these issues for me to bother much with this particular version!!! Don't waste your time or money!!!!!
Misleading to the point of being fraud
by Stickboy46001 on 2018/06/12 14:52
First of all the game itself is fun and addicting. The problem lies in the tokens. They only give you a hand full of tokens and once you get far enough each puzzle costs 20 to 30 tokens. They don't regenerate very fast so unless you do the "quests" you can't play the game anymore unless you pay real money (lots of it). So you look through the list of quests and they look pretty simple. That's where the fraud comes in. I find one that says "take a 2 question survey for 38 tokens". So I click on it, take a 5 question survey and get 2 tokens. Ok whatever, let's go to the next. This survey says 4 questions for 60 tokens. So I start the survey and it starts asking for all sorts of personal info, but I go along with it. About 50 questions later (when the app says it would be 4), I get a prompt that I have to actually order a product with real money to finish the survey. That wasn't what I agreed to so I skip it. I get zero tokens for that, but they took all my info. So basically don't expect to actually get tokens from the quests, they rarely actually give you what they say they will. Between that and the constant barrage of ads, I can't recommend this to anyone. It's a blatant money grab game that will flat out lie to you in order to get you to click on things. It probably should be pulled from the store IMO
A fun, typical game
by I Am Seth on 2018/03/07 20:07
This game is very intriguing, and has puzzles that get your mind active. There are different difficulties of puzzles, and many to choose from. This game allows you to play any puzzle, as long as you have enough tokens. Now, for someone who constantly plays games on their phones, this might be restricting as you have to wait for the tokens to build back up over time. But for someone like myself who only plays a little bit at a time, it is a perfect system. I don't always play, so my tokens have built up to the point that when I do play, I can do any level I want and not have to worry about needing more tokens. Furthermore, if you're in the middle of a puzzle and need to stop, you don't need to worry because you can come back later and the progress you've made on the puzzle will save. You can also restart puzzles if you've messed it up too much, and it doesn't consume tokens. Overall, I would recommend this game to those that need a good game that will keep them concentrated and thinking for a short break in their day. An addition: you can change your time for more tokens. Easy quick way to get them, never pay.
Addicting but could use some tweaks
by SumSumSummer03 on 2019/11/30 06:30
I have been playing Picture Cross for about 3 months now. I absolutely love it and would recommend it to anyone. I am just VERY frustrated about the tokens, like many others. According to other reviews, the cost of the puzzles accelerate. I agree with changing the way the tokens work and I also do not use my coins. But....the thing that gets me the most is the stupid TAPJOY. It says take a short survey for 53 tokens and I’m like sweet!! I spend 15 miserable minutes complete the survey, press finish, go back to picture cross, and get 0 TOKENS!!! I would like to earn my tokens when I complete things like that. Also I sometimes take a survey that uses personal information and then after like 15 questions it finally says: sorry but you have not qualified for any surveys! If these things were fixed, I would absolutely love this more. OOH last suggestion I think that you should be able to use whatever tokens you have. For instance, if this puzzle costs 20 tokens, but I only have 10, I could put in the 10 I have and wait until I have another 10 to complete the cost. If these things were fixed I would never stop them laying this game!!! Also, question. Does the 10 tokens recharge every day or do you have to use them?
Wish I could give it 5...
by Dumpster Diva on 2018/10/31 04:01
Because everything about playing is spectacular! I actually give this game credit for helping me quit smoking - kept me so distracted and occupied that I made it through the temptation! It’s challenging, problem-free, friendly interface, I love this game. BUT - you earn barely enough tokens to play, nor enough coins. I did spend money along the way to buy tokens (considered it better than spending on cigarettes). And I have replayed most all the medium / hard puzzles countless times to get more tokens, and have endured the ads over and over again as well. But there’s just no way to enjoy this game unless you’re willing to spend money. As you accumulate tokens, It raises the cost of the games. It has all the silly quests etc., but you get virtually nothing for completing them, nor for completing a board. And having completed EVERY puzzle, I am in the situation where I can no longer play at all. I can’t earn coins anymore because there are no new puzzles, and without coins I can’t even replay puzzles. So developers - Check my account - I’ve spent a considerable amount over the last few months. And you’ve effectively locked me out. Come off you’re greed just a notch or two and I’ll gladly give you five stars.
Great game! Just a couple tweaks
by Platimor on 2019/03/04 03:22
I’ve played through about 250 puzzles at this point and have enjoyed it a lot! One issue I see however is that it can be very easy to go through tokens, especially when even some super easy puzzles cost up to 50 tokens (the max I’ve seen) and take a very short time to solve. My suggestion to fix this would be a conversion system from coins to tokens. I do realize this is incentive for the players to purchase more tokens, but for me it is just a deterrent from playing. For players like myself who also don’t like using any hints, this would give some value to the coins. Another fix I’d like to see is a change to the screen where you are selecting your puzzle: when you tap on a puzzle, you can see the part of the picture underneath it that is to be revealed after solving the puzzle. I think this just may be a glitch. Another side note, there are also just a few puzzles I’ve seen so far that have multiple solutions, but that doesn’t really seem to be a problem. Other than that, I think this is a great game! Numerous puzzles to keep you interested for a long time.
I wish I had something to do with my coins?
by vaguefamiliarity on 2019/02/10 22:30
I really love this game. Yes, the finished puzzles often aren’t recognizable but if I want a beautifully finished puzzle I would just work from a nonogram physical book (I have some that go up to 50x50 grids!), which is much more rewarding anyway. The token system is not my favorite, but I’ve never had the issue of not receiving tokens for a quest, as many others have complained about. Maybe I’m just lucky. I don’t find the “super hard” terribly challenging but they do make me wrack my brain a bit. I’ve been making myself solve “super easy” and “easy” puzzles without using any x’s and that’s given me a new challenge I enjoy. So why, after all this, did I give this three stars instead of five? Because I have 134,290 coins and literally nothing to do with them. I’ve never used a hint and don’t see myself doing that any time soon. Completing the puzzle is rewarding but I always inwardly groan a little when I get coins instead of more tokens. To the developers: If we could convert coins into tokens, even at a high exchange rate, that would ease some of my frustration with this useless commodity. Is this something you’ve ever considered?
Finally!
by kenzers70 on 2019/08/18 06:08
A wonderful logic pic cross puzzle! It's got some good challenges but also not impossible to beat. The color puzzles are a nice change and challenge! The format is nice too! I really love this game and have been playing it for a couple years. I love that there's awesome updates too! A couple of wishes though, I wish you could exchange tokens/gold for coins/ green tokens to play games as I don't often need hints and have a lot of gold racked up. I also feel likes there's a lot a lot of ads even for a free version. I don't mind the watching ads for more levels but sometimes really long ads pop up when I win a level and it can crash the game. I wouldn't mind a pop up picture ad but the videos always cut off music and take forever to get to the next level and I find myself closing the game instead of continuing to play. ( Side question what ads disappear when you buy something? All of them or the banner or? I was unsure. I'll gladly buy something if the video ads go away at the end of levels! ) But for real this game is awesome!
There are some wishes, but overall just great.
by Pingva on 2019/09/19 20:19
I tried other games of this type, but the puzzles in this one keep me entertained enough to play everyday for half a year. I like what I cannot say what is on my picture even after I finish the piece and it’s colored by the game — this level of abstraction actually is a great plus, because it keeps me from guessing and leave only logical approach available. Somehow the technical part works better for me here, than in other games: I like how I can draw lines of positive bits or crosses right on top of already opened parts without worrying to mess up. And yes, you can change coins for tokens in a way — just open the part you already solved and instead of re-doing it for tokens, just press on the rows and pay with your coins to finish the whole thing in seconds; repeat as many times as you need to get the amount of necessary tokens. So I even do not see this ‘token system’ as a real shortcoming. My biggest wish: I play on my tablet, so I would appreciate if the screen of the game could rotate! :)
Changing my original review
by TheBossyMom on 2017/12/29 13:14
So initially I reviewed the game as fun but not enjoying the ads. Then I (finally) completed all the quests, only to discover that in order to get enough tokens to play some of the puzzles (30, 40, 50 token ones), I had to wait DAYS for the tokens to build up...unless I wanted to pay. Here’s the deal, I don’t mind to pay $5 and get 2000 tokens and have, at the most, puzzles be 30-token puzzles, but when 80% of the games have squares that are 35+ tokens, you would have to spend a lot of money to even finish. Several days I opened the app, just to get the additional tokens so I could play some of the higher ‘priced’ puzzles but I am about done with that process. You would think the developers would allow you to use these almost-useless coins to purchase more tokens. But if you keep having to wait days to earn enough tokens, then...you’re quickly going to lose customers. Have the tokens generate 10 every 30 minutes CONTINUOUSLY so that you could check back in a few hours and have 60, 80, 100 tokens to work with. That would help. But I’m not spending $100+ to buy tokens for hundreds of tiny puzzles. I totally love the game...but this caused me to reduce it from 4 stars to 2.
Only Good for Small Sessions
by Doomkeaper on 2020/03/19 21:33
Let me start out by saying the game itself is very solid. The puzzles are good and range a lot in difficulty. I have had a lot of fun playing. That said, this game has a fatal flaw that makes it only playable for about 10-15min a day. You will eventually hit a point where the puzzles cost more of the tokens than the game actually allows you to accumulate for free. 10 tokens is the max you can earn without the daily token reward, purchasing more, or watching a 30-45sec advertisement. More than half the puzzles in each collection cost 11+ tokens to unlock. I now only pay this game once in the morning with the daily tokens payout because paying for tokens would be ridiculous with how many other free games just like this exist. If you just want 1-3 daily puzzles to play for a short period, then this is fine for you to get your fix. However, if you want this to be a puzzle game you can play continuously, then be prepared to fork out money to play because it is impossible to earn enough tokens to even play some puzzles without paying or waiting for your next daily token payout.
It’s good but it’s not as fun as it could be
by callyfornia on 2018/07/20 06:07
I definitely like this app but I don’t love it. It’s more occupying than it is fun—at least for me. I do have a couple suggestions that might make it better but one of them is based on a different but very similar game and might be a big change. 1) Let us zoom in! It’s so hard to press the correct tiny square and I can’t stress enough how annoying it is to constantly be tapping unnecessarily on 5 different squares before getting the right one. 2) I used to play this game on Facebook called colorcross but I can’t find it anywhere else. What I liked about that game is that in each puzzle there were multiple colors and you had to fill in the entire picture. Personally I think it makes it more fun because we can see the picture coming to life while we’re working on it instead of leaving it looking incomplete. I just started playing this game so I’m not sure if this feature shows up later in the game but I’m not very hopeful that it does. It’s a good game but it definitely could be better.
Fun game, but token system is slow
by Jill P. on 2018/06/11 18:18
UPDATE - I am increasing the number of stars because I was just a awarded almost 300 tokens. Not sure if that was a result of this review, or because of the apps and surveys mentioned below. If it is because of the apps and games, which I suspect it is, it sure took a long time! But I am happy, and I do still love to play this game! I love the puzzles, so fun to play, but I am abandoning this game. The token system is not working. I try to watch a video for one measly token and it always says I have reached my limit of eight tokens for the day. Do the ten max tokens I earn every half-hour count towards that?? If so, don't give me the ten and let me watch unlimited videos. Isn't that the point anyways? Advertising? Besides, I have also taken countless surveys, downloaded and played numerous games to the point where I should have gotten the tokens promised, but no tokens were actually awarded. I emailed once and they gave me some tokens, but I will not email each time. I am abandoning this game. Till they make the reward token system better.
Not Even Microtransactions Let Me Play More.
by MySalsaBros on 2019/06/03 15:58
I love almost every bit of this game. The mechanics, the personality, each and every puzzle, and all the little details in the art. It’s super fun to play, I just wish I could play it more. The token system really made things hard on how much I can play the game, considering I need to wait to play or I pay. And considering the wait time on tokens has a max limit of 10 tokens, that means you can’t play any puzzles that have more than ten tokens (which could be all that’s left, meaning you have to wait for the daily tokens the next day). I even paid ten dollars for 1500 tokens, but those only lasted a little under half a week. I just want to play your awesome game more, but the token system keeps me from doing that. Even paying doesn’t let me play whenever I want. This is the one blatant issue I have with the game, and I would really appreciate it if tokens could at least be replenished to twenty tokens or something (you would have to wait in-game to get ‘em, though). If possible, just try to make getting more puzzles not so much trouble to get.
My good review of this game will be mentioned last
by Politicalcrysis on 2018/06/30 05:52
This game is fun until the need to spend money comes into playing the game. You get a max of ten coins to recharge. Most of the puzzles cost more than that to unlock. 11 coins to unlock a puzzle and sometimes 40 to unlock others. How can I avoid paying money to finish it? They offer watching ads but you only get 5 coins maximum and other times they don’t even offer watching ads to earn a whopping one coin per ad. So now I’m at a point where I’ve worked through all of the puzzles and now I have to wait for the daily reward of just opening the app without playing just to save up enough coins to play maybe one puzzle every couple of days. This game is pay to win. My love for the game started at two stars for the frustration but now I change it to one star because now I’m talking about it. Make a game to be fun but if you’re going to charge for it, charge me, don’t charge my loyalty. You won’t get any money out of me for coins to continue playing a game. I’d rather pay 0.99 with ads than pay you 9.99 for enough coins to keep me paying for maybe an hour. This game is good. It’s worth charging money for. But it’s not worth charging you continuously.
Predatory spam from attempting to earn tokens
by Sydthkid18 on 2019/06/19 17:20
I really enjoy this game, however something strange happened when I tried to earn tokens from taking a survey. The survey I attempted claimed to be for KFC. The actual questions in the survey had no substance nor anything to do with KFC, and at the end of the question it requested contact information. I put fake information except for my email, in case I needed to receive an email to get the tokens. It then redirected me to some other site and asked for more info, and ultimately I gave up and did not earn any coins. The next day, I started receiving emails from Judicial Watch, an ultra-conservative right wing nonprofit organization. I unsubscribed immediately, but kept receiving emails from them. I have unsubscribed multiple times, to no avail. Not once in that process was Judicial Watch mentioned, and I’m pretty sure it’s illegal to collect emails in such a misleading/concealed manner? I’m wondering if anyone else has had this same issue, and also requesting that the developers take more care in what kind of advertisements they put into their games.
Very good game, just needs some tuneups
by malonej7 on 2019/04/03 13:01
The game is very fun and addicting. I especially like the new color-specific puzzles that make it more challenging. Couple things they need to fix to make this game 5 stars: 1. Make the cost of each puzzle visible without having to click on each square. I’ve wasted so much time clicking around 50 squares to find one I can “afford” with my current coin total. Would be so much better if you just put the amounts on the puzzles themselves, show only the ones we can afford in some other way, or let us search for ones in a certain range of prices. 2. Stop ripping people off. I spent some money to buy a bunch of coins early on in the game and I assumed I spent enough to open every puzzle. But i was WAYYY off. It’s not worth buying coins unless you’re willing to spend 100s of dollars. And if you are, I almost feel bad for you. Just wait for the daily “allowance” and spend those coins. It keeps you from being too addicted and doing all the puzzles at once anyways.
Great Game
by Misoxfan on 2017/10/05 11:46
The game is fun and challenging at most levels. Realize this is a free game that is supported by ads. After each level an ad will pop up. The ads are repetitive. Same ads play over and over and you get to the point where you don’t even engage in the ads because you have seen the same ad over and over right after each level. At least mix the ads up! As in other reviews, it’s frustrating to advance in the game after you get to a certain level because of tokens. You can earn tokens several ways- you can get that as a daily bonus, they regenerate within a certain period up to 10 tokens and on certain levels you can get bonus tokens. When a level costs more than 10 tokens you will only be able to play one level that day. What fun is that? When you want to play a game, don’t you normally want to play more than a few minutes? It’s a shame that it’s such a great game and you have to ration your tokens and strategize how to use your tokens to play a level?
Very pleased with this app.
by xChrista on 2019/12/14 02:22
I don’t leave reviews much, if at all. But I will say this game is worth it no matter the reason. It does take tokens to open the puzzles, which in my opinion helps you from blowing through every puzzle pack in no time. I’ll agree tokens are slightly hard to come by, unless you win them from a puzzle completion, or the daily gift. However if you use your coins, you can replay already solved puzzles, you get up to 3 tokens for resolving it. Which to me is nice, if I just need a couple more to open the next piece. Not to mention, occasionally you can watch an ad after completing puzzles to get extra tokens as well. I do have a bunch of coins I don’t know if I’ll ever use up, and sometimes my game does “lag” a bit which can be hard when you’re on a roll. But overall this game is totally worth the time. I’ve been close to completing all the puzzle packs, and then they update and add more packs. So I haven’t run out yet!
Perfect Picross
by Gameguy999 on 2019/06/27 16:50
This is the most perfect any free picross game can get. Of course the game has ads, and the token system can be annoying sometimes, but the game is completely free and they have to make money somehow. I never NEVER buy any micro transactions but this game was so good I just wanted to support the developers that much. If ads really bother you, if you purchase any item at all, every ad disappears (you can still watch an ad manually for extra tokens) which means you get your purchased item(s) and all ads taken away as a bonus. The only downside that I can possibly think of is the token system. You need tokens to unlock a level to play and they refill slowly over time. Completing some levels earns you tokens, and if you log in you also get some, but in the earlier packs you just blow through tokens so quickly it can be frustrating sometimes. Overall though, I really enjoy this game and I can’t recommend it enough if you love picross.
Great game if you ok with pay to play.
by cosmic gate crasher on 2019/07/07 17:28
This is my second logic puzzle style game I downloaded and, initially, I was very happy because this game offered more challenging puzzles. Fast forward a few days (depending on how long it takes you to solve the puzzles and how often you play) and I noticed I ran out of tokens to unlock puzzles. I got confused because I had so many coins from solving puzzles. Tokens are used to unlock hints. “Ohh... Well I don’t want hints. I want to keep playing.” So I see this icon to get 10 tokens by clicking Facebook and posting on my page. Long story short, I didn’t get any tokens, I complained to development team, got a nice apology, they updated their “known issues” section, still no tokens, and now they are ignoring my request to escalate. Developing company doesn’t care about customers. If they have an auto reply their response will probably say something along the lines of “We’re sorry to hear you’ve had problems with Picture Cross.” Lol also these games don’t have an undo function if you accidentally click on wrong row or column. This game is designed for apple pens or thin tip stylus. Look for another developer. Uninstalling right after I hit send.
Awesome game but a few suggestions!
by careshaw98 on 2019/08/08 23:20
I absolutely love this game and I have consistently played it for months! It is challenging, but not too challenging and I thoroughly love it! My biggest gripe about this game is that when you finish a puzzle pack, you don’t get any token rewards for it. This was extremely disappoint when I spent months working on the World’s Biggest Puzzle, expecting to get some kind of reward for finishing it, and I got nothing. It would just be nice to get a token reward for completing a puzzle pack so that you have some to get you started on your next puzzle pack! Next, I think that for the daily reward, you should be able to watch an ad everyday to double your reward, not just randomly. Sometimes I only get to double my daily reward once every week, if that, and it would be nice for that to be a consistent opportunity! I love this game and it is one of my favorites, I just would like to see those few changes be made!!
Too hard
by lilack blossom on 2018/07/15 19:38
So I get this game thinking it would show me a pic and I would have to try and match it but that is not what it is at all . This is the hardest game I've ever played. It's not like I thought it was going to be .which they probably thought would be to easy , but it probably would be really hard because have you ever done one of those pictures when you were a kid in those coloring books. The ones where you have to try to match the picture it already gives you part of it. It was really hard right? So don't you think they could've done that instead where you have to try to drag the line to make the picture that would've been a much more fun game. This way is way too hard. Now don't get me wrong their prices on the gems are very low. But the game is so hard once you get one row it doesn't match the other one so you end up losing your mind over what square goes where . And sometimes I have to just buy more gems and tap on the row to finish the level it's just ridiculous. So to anyone who is looking to buy this game don't it's way too hard if you're looking for a challenge and it's a game for you and if you're not don't get it .
Updated based on dev responsiveness!
by Rhia Jarvis on 2019/07/17 04:54
Edit: originally I gave two stars, but I’m updating my original rating because I’m impressed by the devs. They actually seem to have listened to all our feedback, and they’ve instituted changes so it’s now totally feasible to play without purchasing any currency directly (just watching a few ads). Thank you guys so much for listening to our feedback, and thanks for the awesome game!! Original review below: I loved this game, would check in nearly every single day and play at least a level or two. You used to earn 10 tokens on the first and second(?) check ins in a row, then increasing up to 20, 30, etc. On the last day, you earned 40, so that with the normal 10 you got daily, you would have 50 - the maximum amount needed to pay for any particular level. Now, they’ve changed it so the maximum you can get logging in is 15 - meaning you can get a total of 25 at once per day. They’ve effectively changed it so that you can no longer afford the most expensive levels without actually spending real money in the game. Since the cutoff for watching advertisements is 8 tokens earned daily, you can no longer play every day if you want to afford the expensive levels. It’s very easy to get to the point where you only have the expensive levels left - now, anything over 33 tokens will have to wait. Honestly, it’s so disappointing. I loved this game.
Great Game
by Trhea92 on 2019/05/06 03:48
I want to start off saying I’m completely addicted to this game, and I hate to be! It’s amazingly fun and I have over 1.5 days of play time (yes days). I know every game maker is trying to bleed us completely dry off of micro transactions, and this game is no exception. It’s seems like I never used to run out of tokens, you earn them randomly from completing quests, achievements or the random levels. The last updates have absolutely killed the rate you earn tokens at, the last 30 puzzles I played I might have received a total of 40 tokens, which is absolutely nothing compared that it takes anywhere from 8-50 to do a single level! I’ve spent real money of token packages only to run out 5 levels later because the token cost is so high! The max you can earn for free is 10 and the more are a few levels that I have yet to compete because the cost 30+! It’s absolutely absurd to make a single level cost that much and to rarely earn tokens via regular play! Will not recommend playing until they have fixed the token return rates!
Love the game, but one MAJOR FLAW!
by H2OLGD on 2017/09/18 00:06
The game itself is super fun, keeps the mind engaged and thinking. Which is fantastic for everyone who uses these apps for the purposes that I do. Distraction from major pain that I live with every single day. I love the games that can engage my mind so thoroughly, which this does. So great game. BUT ......... the only way to keep playing is to purchase more blocks, with tokens. And there is no way to earn more than 5 tokens in one day, and you can only get those by watching 5 different commercials. Otherwise you have to buy the tokens. That's just ridiculous. And each tiny little square to open costs more than 5 tokens. So you can basically play one box a day without having to purchase anything. Don't make it a free game if you're not going to let us have additional ways to earn tokens for the squares!!!! You should be able to earn tokens for each square you complete, not have to pay for them. Because as I said beforehand. It's a fun game, and not everyone can afford to keep buying squares.
Really fun but heading in the wrong direction
by Manderson1188 on 2019/08/08 15:22
I love this game and have spent a disgusting amount of time in it, clearing almost 2000 puzzles. It’s become a daily routine of mine to open the app, collect the daily tokens and complete a few puzzles while I am in between things. My main issue is that the game is becoming more and more stingy with the costs of unlocking each puzzle, and it is starting to make me reconsider my time in the game. Most of the packs walk a fine line between having cheap puzzles mixed with super expensive ones, this left you with plenty to do and let you strategically save your tokens to pay for the high cost ones. Unfortunately, the recent Paris Pack has so many high cost puzzles that I am constantly stuck waiting and saving to buy the next puzzle. I’m all for spending some money to support this game, but the current prices do not tempt me at all... why would I spend money on a currency that will be gone in 2 puzzles? If the current pricing structure is a trend going forward then I will be uninstalling the game.
Great, except for the lag.
by Panda5315 on 2017/12/16 02:46
I absolutely love this game and the concept of it. There are a variety of levels, from beginners to challenging, which allows a range for all kinds of players and also allows practice. How to play nonograms is explained well in the tutorial, and it isn't terribly redundant. The fact that each level makes a picture gives the game more purpose, and there's motivation to continue. The only issue I have is how laggy the game is. Sometimes the game will randomly shut down or exit for no reasons also, whenever I start the game, the screen freezes up for a good five seconds or more before I can slide left or right to pick a level. Once I pick a level, that screen then freezes up, and sometimes it takes many clicks before a level will open. Other than this, I like the game a lot, and I hope they come up with more great updates in the future. This last updates with the additional levels is awesome!
Glitchy?
by InnieNinner on 2019/12/27 21:44
Love this game, I’ve had it for months and I play it daily. I’ve never had a problem until recently. For some reason, it freezes up and doesn’t let me exit out of the app. I started thinking the problem was with my iPad but I’m noticing a pattern; the freeze issues are only when I open this game. It would open and work fine, then it would be unresponsive and not put the dots where I need them to go, so I’d try to exit out of the game but my home button on the iPad wouldn’t work. I would try to lock the iPad to turn it off and sometimes it won’t work. Again, I thought it was my iPad but this issue only occurs when I play this game, which is only a few minutes each day, considering I play many other games for hours without any issues whatsoever. This game deserves five stars but since I am currently unable to play, I’m giving it four. Fix it please, I miss playing it and it’s been a few days since it stops working.
Mostly love this game!
by shann730 on 2018/10/31 17:19
I’m changing this from my original review. Now that I’ve been playing a while and figured out how to get tokens without spending money or doing ridiculous surveys that guarantees spam emails and phone calls (You just have to replay puzzles). I love These puzzles. The hard ones are hard enough to be challenging but not so hard you can’t figure it out without a cheat. The easy ones are a quick, fun distraction. My only real complaint is how long it takes to get new puzzles. I’ve been done with all the puzzles for two weeks now and since I do them without paying for tokens I didn’t finish them unusually fast. I’m still using the app because I’m using this downtime to replay puzzles and earn tokens for when a new puzzle is up but that gets old after a while. So new puzzles faster (or the big 400 square puzzles instead of all 64 square puzzles) would make it better so there was less wait time between games.
Fun but annoying
by Jbeansy6 on 2019/01/19 13:51
The puzzles are great and addicting, when you can actually play them! The constant barrage of ads, slow token generation, and high “cost” of unlocking puzzles makes this more aggravating than fun. Unlocking achievements, completing trophy collections, and completing quests gives no additional tokens or coins, so what is the point of that!? The additional “earn more tokens” activities are complete scams. I’ve wasted so much of my time watching ads or playing other games to get to certain levels, only to never receive the promised awards. Sure, you can replay completed puzzles to earn a whole 2 tokens a pop, but that means to unlock one 30-40 token puzzle you’d have to replay 10-15 puzzles which wastes a lot of time. This game has great potential but having to wait several days or waste hours replaying old ones just to have enough tokens to play a new puzzle is a huge drawback. So is having to watch an ad for every darn thing. Finish a puzzle, watch an ad. Go back to the main screen, watch an ad first. Etc. WAY too many ads!
Fun Game But...
by Jseammjohnson on 2017/11/08 00:23
I really do enjoy this game. It is engaging and challenging at the same time. My only complaint is how long it takes to gain tokens to continue playing the different puzzles. The puzzles cost varying amounts of tokens. There are a few ways to get the tokens: wait for the once daily reward, happen upon tokens as a prize after completing a puzzle (this doesn’t happen nearly often enough), replay a completed puzzle (this can get repetitive), watch an ad for one free token, purchase them, or wait for your tokens to regenerate to 10. Having 10 tokens is nice if you want to wait for that regeneration but after a while the puzzles cost much more than 10 tokens. In fact, I’m only writing this review because I’m hoping the developers will recognize the need to open up more tokens more often and so I can get the promised 20 free tokens. It’s a fun game and I really wish I could play more consistently without always running out of tokens.
Very enjoyable, good overall game :)
by Kmkirchhefer on 2018/04/25 14:24
I have enjoyed playing this game for about 2 weeks now. Pros: it’s not spammed with adds, they come on after finished a couple puzzles or backing out of a puzzle, however some of the adds are less than 10 seconds :) they range in difficulty, earning daily green coins/tokens to obtain new puzzles vs having to buy them (however I might pay for some because I really enjoy this game and don’t want to wait for daily rewards to get more tokens haha) Cons: it seems to drain my battery pretty good on my 1+ year old iPhones 6s lol Wishing The was a trade store or something because I’m sitting at 16+k in coins since I don’t need the hints very often but maybe later on I’ll meet more challenging puzzles where I do need them (I think I’ve used the hint for 250 coins on 3 puzzle about 1-2 times) Over all I really enjoy the this game and hope it continues to grow :) thanks!
Never Gonna Finish
by jnkgirl on 2020/01/14 05:41
I’ve been playing since October 2015. I love this app for Picross and they continue to update all the time which is wonderful. There has always been this sort of last level called the Picture Cross Arcade and you can only access it once you finish all the levels before it. I would always be a few puzzles away before they added a new picture and 100 more puzzles would stand in my way before I could reach the Arcade. Then I’d near the end and then Color pictures got introduced! A constant cat and mouse chase. Having played for 4 years, the gap has since widened and I don’t think I’ll ever make it to the Arcade. They should have allowed access to the Arcade after completing a certain picture and created something else to look forward to at the end of the road. I’ve almost completed 10 puzzles, well over 1000 squares and find it disheartening to know I will never learn what is at the “end.”
Enjoy the game
by Not impressed today on 2020/02/29 15:04
I have been playing the game for a long time now and I am happy to see the developers staying ahead of me so lots more play available for the future. Like many others have mentioned, coins are really just a distraction and I will hit the million mark soon because I work the challenge rather than buying a hint. In all the time I have been playing, I think I may have bought tokens twice. Wait until they are nearly gone and you get a discount offered with 1500 tokens for $9.99. Check in every day to get those freebies! One thing I am really disappointed with is no acknowledgment when you finish a pack. It would be great if you got a message like “congratulations on completing the xxx pack- here is your 500 token reward!” Even if you remain too cheap to offer a reward, you could at least have something that says job well done.
Love! Love! Love!
by Chyanne 💗 on 2020/03/10 20:19
I find myself playing this game every chance I get! The different level puzzles really make you think and use your head! I’ve completed so many puzzles, my coinage is way up there. With that being said, I’ve found the rewards for the puzzles are mostly coins rather than tokens. The max amount of tokens is 10. Most of the puzzles cost more than 10 tokens. The daily reward does consist of tokens but it’s 15 max and that’s after day 4. I have so many coins i don’t know what to do with them, because I like to try not to use a hint unless necessary. Personally being able to buy more tokens with the coins I have collected in the game would be a major bonus. The +1 free token with the view of an advert only gets you so far because there’s 2 videos max most times. The tokens is the only issue I have with this game other than the lack of tokens I receive within a day, I absolutely love this game!
Good game, I would definitely recommend
by NinjaMurder2073 on 2019/12/14 21:01
Let’s begin with the two things I don’t like. 1. The fact that tokens are very uncommon when solving puzzles so it does take a while to complete a board. You’d have to either buy some, hope the 8 videos is enough to get you to the amount, or wait till the next day to get the daily bonus 2. A lot of puzzles are just out of reach. The fact that a majority of them are between 18-27 tokens to play is annoying that you, again, have to hope you pick the right puzzle and win them, or wait. But other than that, it is super super fun. This is why I give 5/5 instead of 4/5, because it’s so addictive. Even if I just go on to get my daily log in bonus, I’m just waiting to do the expensive puzzle, because those are probably the most fun. It’s very good if you’re bored, if you want to challenge your brain, or if you just like making pictures. The pixel art in this game (mainly the puzzle board itself, but some of the puzzles themselves are cute) is amazing. I do recommend you download this game, even if only to give it a try, now if you’ll excuse me, I gotta go solve like 10 of the puzzles, cause that’s what my life has become (NOT A PAID PROMOTION!) (I promise, would I ever lie to you?) (Ok, you’re right, maybe you, but not the other guy/girl over there, I wouldn’t lie to them)
So close.
by AFluffyPumpkin on 2018/09/06 22:43
Let me start by saying I have no issues with the game. It never crashed on me and the core mechanics are fun. The balance is good, the difficulty is accurate. The problem with this game is it turns into a scam. There is an add after just about every level. That isn’t bad by itself. Most of the normal and hard levels take several minutes to finish and the ratio of ads to playtime is a little high but only while transitioning to the next map so it’s acceptable. The problem comes after you have played for a while. You use tokens to buy every level. You win tokens for completing levels and they generate over time, but the problem is the cost per level goes up the farther in the game you are. Starts at five or six but by the end it’s 50 to play some levels. When you only have a small chance to win tokens and generate one an hour it starts to take days of downtime before you can play. But don’t worry you can buy tokens off the market. If you want to require money to play just make the game cost money. Don’t fill it to the brim with ads then ask for continuous payment.
Fun, but needs improvements
by FabFitFree on 2017/08/21 23:57
I love the idea of this game, but it's not the best in this category. The first problem is tokens. Each puzzle requires a random number of tokens in order to play, so you have to click all over just to find one you have enough tokens for. They should set token amounts based in the colored levels with more tokens required to play easy and fewer tokens needed to play hard. The other complaint is that you earn coins rather than tokens for completed puzzles and the only use for the coins is in replaying a puzzle you've already completed. Dumb. Finally, I'm always being prompted to buy tokens for a special sale, but it's always the same ridiculous prices. I would be happy to buy 5000 tokens for 99 cents once a week to support the game but their prices are high since it costs so many tokens to play a single puzzle. Other than that the idea of the giant puzzle is clever and fun. Just takes too long to earn enough tokens to play.
Maybe improved?

Edit to my last post below: they seem to be forking over coins in much greater quantities now, and you can watch ads to get more, post, rate, invite friends, etc for credits. So maybe they got the hint. I'll raise my score to a 3 for now, and if it keeps going well, erase my bad score entirely. I really WANT to like this game. OLD REVIEW: Started out okay, love game play in general. But you quickly find that if you buy coins, you quit getting extras every X/minute. Also as soon as I bought another packet, the app froze and would not reload... Since it was not not linked to my email I lost my entire game, including the cash I had forked over in the past. They were only able to return the most current use. Also rest assured, there is no way to actually win without paying - it tops out at a lower number of freebies than is needed to play the higher games
Love these games!

I started playing this style of game on Peak but played it so much that I soon had them memorized, making it hard to actually enjoy solving them. Saw an ad for Picture Cross and immediately downloaded it. I was thrilled with the wide variety of puzzles on here, as well as the fact that so many are 15x15 instead of just 10x10. I played through all the levels and then spent quite a bit of time on the arcade level. Then new boards were released, then arcade again. I now am starting to have a lot of arcade ones memorized so have started going back to earlier boards and just playing whatever hard and super-hard ones I come across. I am hoping for some new boards again soon! I would also love a new arcade selection... maybe just hard and super hard in it since anyone who gets that far is clearly experienced. ;)
I love this game but there’s a HUGE problem.
by Maggie😗 on 2018/05/20 18:49
I love this game and have been playing it for a long time, but there’s a huge problem with the token system. I play the puzzles with the flashing question marks, as they are less tokens, and they used to always be 10 tokens or less. Well now they are 11 tokens or more, and so I can’t play any level because I can’t get more than 10 tokens without buying them. I know it says to complete quests to get more tokens, but to complete quests I need tokens to play levels. I know you can replay levels for tokens, but then I run out of coins. It’s really frustrating because I’m halfway done with the first three level packs and I can’t beat any more levels because of the token issue. The only way I can play any levels is to wait for the daily reward or watch videos to get one token, but you can only watch 5 videos a day which doesn’t help much. I love this game, but you need to fix that. Maybe have it where after you get 10 tokens, you can get another token every ten minutes or so. If you fix this I will change my review. Thanks.

Such a fun game really enjoy it
This game is the worse
by Pooper hoo Look fo apps on 2020/04/08 03:06
The easiest level is so hard you don’t know how to complete it, I had one and I had every one of the rows completed except one how is that even possible?

Best cross pic puzzle game I’ve found. No unnecessary ads and the puzzles are great
Should be more generous during quarantine!
by :) :) :) :) :) :D :D :D on 2020/04/07 13:36
I love this game and I kept wondering why I deleted it before. So I downloaded it again and now I know why. As you advance, puzzles need more tokens. At first whenever I finish a puzzle lots of them gave tokens as a reward but now I only receive coins. And for the daily rewards i can’t watch an ad to double my reward anymore. I can only play one puzzle or two daily! And speaking of ads at first it wasn’t so bad, but now the ads are long and I have to watch the whole thing!! Not sure how long I’ll be able to keep playing it. Trying to be patient!! They should be more generous with their tokens during this hard time and not being able to leave the house!
Ads have gotten ridiculous!!
by flamethrower1987 on 2020/04/07 03:28
Now I’m forced to watch a 30sec or longer ad just to see if I’ve gotten a free play by watching another 30 sec or longer ad. Go back to making it possible to skip ads between puzzles! Other than that game is awesome!
Satisfying
by LibbyWB on 2020/04/06 23:36
I am really enjoying this app. It can be challenging but very satisfying to work on and complete.
Great game. Needs more puzzles
by Only 1 fix on 2020/04/06 04:25
Love this game so much. It just doesn’t keep the puzzles coming. Wish there were more

Nice game
Love the game, but .....
by krusti101 on 2020/04/03 20:13
Fun to play, but eventually you will have to buy tokens. Was able to but 1500 for $10. However the cost of playing each individual game increased from 5 to over 20 tokens. I ran out of tokens halfway thru and the cost was 20+ tokens per game. So playing an entire game (400 puzzles) would cost $30. I would rather pay a subscription fee than get roped into something that wanted me keep opening my wallet. Kinda like a rope a dope or bait and switch.
More puzzles
by Grady whittington on 2020/04/02 17:47
Hey picture cross add some more theme puzzle packs don’t remove them I mean it
A bit confusing at first, but fun!
by Dragon Spirit123 on 2020/04/02 01:25
At the beginning, even after the Toto Uriel, it was a little hard. But it’s a really fun game once you get the hang of it.
Never got to play
by Chili bean14 on 2020/04/02 01:09
The app stalls out during the tutorial and won’t let you get past it. Never got to actually play.
Comfy&chilling game
by godmima on 2020/04/01 13:42
I’ve been playing a lot of games due to Covid virus but this is the best app so far. I love the BGM and effect sound. I love the dote pixel images too Absolutely love it
Great Game! Just completed EVERY level!
by JMOsborne829 on 2020/04/01 04:35
I’ve been playing this game for several months now. I just finished the last puzzle! I have accumulated over 260,000 coins! Highly recommend :)
BEWARE The Spam Will Haunt You
by Winniepoo95 on 2020/04/01 02:26
Game play was good, no complaints on the actual puzzles themselves. But first. So. Many. Ads. But more annoyingly you need tokens to open new puzzles. Some are cheap but others are pricey. So, if you’re unwilling to pay for more tokens, eventually you’re going to need to find a way to get a lot of tokens. Well they offer all these ways to get tokens. BEWARE though because the spam from the free token stuff is Super Annoying. I did some of the free quiz stuff and I kid you not the next day I had 13 spam calls that started promptly at 9am. I deleted the app a week ago because it’s not worth it, but the spam calls are still rolling in, and I’m registered on that national No Spam list thing. But I counted and I’ve had 42 spam calls since I was successfully tempted by the offer of free tokens. I recommend Nonogram. It just lets you play the game without nearly as much hassle.
Great app, passes the time
by a-fangirl on 2020/03/31 21:44
This app is really cool. There’s lots of puzzles and the variety is cool. Only grip the token system- convert coins into tokens, please.
Like the game too many tokens to play
by J$e$n$z on 2020/03/31 16:28
I am really enjoying this game, lots of different levels and pictures. The only thing I don’t like is that it cost a lot of tokens to play each one, and it keeps going up as you get closer to finishing a level. The game will refill up to 10 tokens and you get a few tokens by logging in every day but it can cost up to 40 tokens to play 1 puzzle.
Energy
by kdoughton on 2020/03/31 06:11
LOVE THE GAME. Best picture cross, but only being able to play 2-4 levels a day towards the end of maps is excessive.
I just wish......
by WoodysMom4 on 2020/03/31 02:35
Please, please, please make a way to buy tokens with coins. Then this game would be perfect. I'm almost out of puzzles
Very addicting but glitchy
by Fgtrdsj on 2020/03/30 11:24
I’m obsessed with this game, it’s really fun. But you can only play if you have enough tokens for a game and most cost more than the 10 they give you. There are occasional bonuses and you can watch some ads for more. You can also spend a lot of coins to redo a puzzle to earn a couple tokens. This is TEDIOUS if you don’t like doing puzzles over and over. It takes a really long time to go through levels OR you spend a lot of real money. There is no one time fee for the game and no subscription. It’s just buy tokens as you go or play a couple games and then wait for recharges of 10 tokens. The glitches come on with the Daily Rewards. I’ve never gotten rewards on Day 5, and then the next day it starts me over on Day 1 rewards. There have been other random rewards or bonuses that have not been given. I also don’t like that you have to tap every unfinished puzzle to find out it’s token cost. Scanning through the picture of puzzles every time to find a puzzle I can “afford” with my tokens is super annoying. I’d give the game 5 stars for fun, but the problems I listed above bring it down. Every day these things are more annoying and I will likely delete the app before long.
Fun, but money hungry
by KalikoRibbon on 2020/03/30 07:28
I love picross, and I love the way you solve puzzles to reveal a big picture in this app. But this game takes forever. There are ads after every puzzle, which I almost wouldn’t mind, they need to make money. The real problem is they give you way too few login coins. You can just about play one puzzle a day, and are lucky to get a chance to watch an ad to play a new puzzle. I’ve had this game almost a year now, logging in to pick up coins daily, and am only now about to complete the whole first puzzle. Replaying puzzles is not worth the tokens it gives, so half the time it doesn’t really feel like I’m playing the game. It makes me sad, because I do actually like it otherwise.

Soooooo much fun
My credits
by Black Diamond 2019 on 2020/03/27 19:09
I actually like the game but it would be even better if every time I purchase I would not have to call apple. I just spent $10 for 1000 tokens and that’s been 2 days ago and I still have not received my tokens it makes me so upset that I want to delete the game.
Increased ads
by terminat0r97 xbox live on 2020/03/27 06:31
They have increased the ads within the last month. Now almost every ad I get is an unskippable 30 second one and it’s not even giving me coins for these. Used to I could close out after about 5 or 10 seconds but now I’m forced to watch the whole thing.
Lost everything
by thisgirlisaprincess on 2020/03/26 19:38
I have been playing this game for over a year now and my phone restarted everything so when I went to go back to this game I lost everything and had to start over. Really disappointed it’s connected to Game Center but doesn’t have like an account to link everything to. Over a year of daily play gone.
One of my favorite games
by pich313 on 2020/03/26 19:25
This game is so addictive and offers so many levels to make it more challenging as you figure out more was to solve the puzzles. I got my wife addicted to it as well. It’s perfect for winding down at the end of the day and for waiting rooms, etc.
By far the longest ads! Ruins an otherwise Great Game
by Warriorturtle on 2020/03/26 17:18
I actually really enjoy this game, it's fun, and presents a nice little challenge while you're passing the time! However, I don't play it as often as I want, or could because the ad experience ruins it, there is an ad between every puzzle, and sometimes when you're choosing a puzzle. Furthermore, the ads are longer than I've experienced in any other game with the average length in excess of 180 seconds, without the option to skip/close early like most other games allow! I like to play it while I'm trying to kill a few minutes, but I end up watching an ad, and no longer have time!! Fix this and it's easily a 5-Star App!
Must pay for content
by Why would I tell you my name?? on 2020/03/26 02:17
For starters, the pictures are nonsense. I have no idea what I’m looking at 90% of the time. Which isn’t a huge deal. But they always reward you with yellow coins, which are for hints. They never give you enough green coins to “buy” new games. So I ran out of coins. There are supposedly ways to get the green coins through advertisements but the game never gives them to me even when I complete them! Good concept, but I’ll get it somewhere for less work. Thanks.
Color
by Christianpaige82 on 2020/03/25 15:58
When making the puzzle, it would be cooler if it was in color so you could see the picture you’re making. I have no idea what I’m making! It would be cooler if you could tell when there’s a mistake because the picture looks wrong. Make it for vivid. It would be nice if there were clues of what the picture was going to be. It is very addicting!
Overall pretty good but has so big downsides
by 24maddy on 2020/03/25 06:02
I overall love the game and are addicted to playing it. Only the problems I have with are some of great concern. First, the games level systems are completely weird, sometimes I’ll play an easy level which would end up being harder than a medium level and medium and hard levels are pretty much the same thing. Second, occasionally when I get my daily tokens, it just doesn’t give them to me. This especially happens when it is at the bigger rewards. Take today, I go to get my daily tokens, the screen pops up and I press collect, the screen goes away and I haven’t gotten my tokens. This really is a problem as tokens are the only way to play a level. Third, the levels cost way more tokens the. The. The app gives us, without having to resort to paying with real money. As you go through the levels the start to cost more to play, so even go as high as 60 tokens, this usually wouldn’t be a problem for games but in this one it is because they only refill your tokens to 10. You have to find ways to gain the extra 50 tokens. As someone who can’t afford to pay for more, collecting that many could take a pretty long time for just one level. Even with all it’s downsides I wouldn’t stop playing the game. I just wish they would fix them so I can have more of a good time, instead of a stressful one while playing.
Need more puzzles
by MattNessaJackBay on 2020/03/25 03:50
I LOVE this game!!! The only problem is that I’ve completed all of the puzzles (yes I’m a little obsessed!). Please add more... I especially love the color puzzles!!!
3/5
by sara2015harris on 2020/03/24 16:41
I absolutely love this game. I could play it for hours on end. And I have a couple of times. The only thing holding me back is tokens. Half the time I need more than 10 tokens and that’s all you can earn. When I try to watch ads to earn tokens it says there are no videos to see. I’d like to see either the price of each puzzle go down in tokens. Because i go days without playing sometimes because it doesn’t always offer me tokens for watching ads. Or just go without the tokens and use the coins instead. I have plenty of coins on this game that are wasting away because most of the time I don’t need clues. I really hope this is helpful because I feel like I’m at the end of my road with this game because I just can’t make up the tokens I need to keep playing.
Same puzzles
by Nonnie2016 on 2020/03/24 16:01
I finished “The World’s Biggest Puzzle” and started “After Dark” and they are the exact same puzzles! It is frustrating that you have to spend coins to get tokens. On another app they give you the “chance” to get tokens. It gives you 3 gift boxes to choose from, letting you see what is in the boxes, and then mixing them up. Then it gives you another chance to get open another box “IF” you watch an ad.
Love the game
by Vannahvannah on 2020/03/23 14:17
Spend too much money but I have a job so I can spend it how I want. Hope they make more boards soon as working from home I have done a lot of them.

Good, but one big problem
by dotelstotels on 2020/03/23 01:58
I love the fact that this game has so many unique pictures and that there are different puzzles that you combine to make one big picture. But one of my biggest problems is the fact that you don’t have the option to give you 3 mistakes and you’re out. The fact that I don’t have the option to correct your mistakes makes the game way more confusing and I can’t even pass a medium level because of it. If you could give us the option for the game to correct our mistakes, I bet I could turn these 3 stars into 5 stars. Thank you for listening to my reply.
Tokens
by 771771771777272727272717 on 2020/03/22 02:40
After replaying several puzzles to earn enough tokens to do my last 50 token puzzle, I had something like 27 tokens. I closed the app and came back a few hours later to find the app took the tokens, and now I only have 10 tokens again. Why? Watching advertisements to earn tokens also doesn’t work. Greedy developer doesn’t give a fair chance to play unless you are willing to spend money or sign up for junk.
My favorite
by Sign2sing on 2020/03/21 15:07
I really like this game. I think it has helped improved my logical thinking and planning ahead skills
Fun but...
by hvamom on 2020/03/20 18:18
So, I’m not the sort of person to buy a game. I’ll try it and I enjoyed it. The thing is, there could be some sort of reward if you solve a puzzle without any help, like some more tokens! I am on the very last puzzle of my picture and even though I solved the next to last puzzle without any help, I can’t solve the final one because I don’t have enough tokens. I have lots of coins but I can’t use those to solve the puzzle. The game is fun and I enjoy doing a few every evening to unwind from the day.
Amazing! Need more levels & tokens
by Erbbbpop126598 on 2020/03/20 18:06
I love this game!! I've completed all the levels & now I don’t know what to do with myself. They’re plenty of levels but I need more!! Also, it’s so hard to get tokens, especially because it only automatically loads to 10 tokens even tho you need 45 for some levels. So they should def make it easier to get tokens. Again, love this game it’s so fun!!
Just one problem
by loveydovey12321232 on 2020/03/20 00:15
I mean I like the game,but what’s up with the hearts.Just because I get three wrong doesn’t mean I have to watch a ad for one it’s just unfair.Well that’s it sorry for this review
Only Good for Small Sessions
by Doomkeaper on 2020/03/19 21:33
Let me start out by saying the game itself is very solid. The puzzles are good and range a lot in difficulty. I have had a lot of fun playing. That said, this game has a fatal flaw that makes it only playable for about 10-15min a day. You will eventually hit a point where the puzzles cost more of the tokens than the game actually allows you to accumulate for free. 10 tokens is the max you can earn without the daily token reward, purchasing more, or watching a 30-45sec advertisement. More than half the puzzles in each collection cost 11+ tokens to unlock. I now only pay this game once in the morning with the daily tokens payout because paying for tokens would be ridiculous with how many other free games just like this exist. If you just want 1-3 daily puzzles to play for a short period, then this is fine for you to get your fix. However, if you want this to be a puzzle game you can play continuously, then be prepared to fork out money to play because it is impossible to earn enough tokens to even play some puzzles without paying or waiting for your next daily token payout.
It’s just a preview app. Need to pay to get far after couple days
by Sripathi1 on 2020/03/19 19:20
Tokens tokens tokens for everything. I’ll probably increase my rating if I find any use of the coins especially converting them to tokens
My favorite
by yumechinchinko on 2020/03/19 07:02
I’ve played hundreds of hours of this game because it’s amazing but I wld love to see data transfer onto different devices!!!
Its fun, but you will pay if you want to beat it.
by Hodjo Kosan on 2020/03/18 23:28
I guess if you only do 1 or 2 puzzles a day, the daily rewards might keep you breaking even, but I played much more than that, and have had to pay for tokens to keep playing. You can also do puzzles over again for more tokens but you can get like max 5 tokens per repeat and some puzzles cost 30+. Ive spent 20 bucks on it so far, and I know thats a lot but I am fine with that, but I know some others won’t be, so I’m just putting this out there.
BEST EVER
by tmsugg on 2020/03/18 22:06
This is the best nonogram around! So much fun but doesn’t give enough tockens so I can’t play as much as I want
by Hmh16 on 2020/03/17 22:18
i seriously adore this game. i’ve done every single puzzle and finished the game already because it’s so calming to do. i like the challenge and i love this app. i can’t wait for new levels!
Amazing game.
by FPM on 2020/03/17 17:52
One of the best puzzle games I’ve ever found.
Difficulty
by Lissy_31 on 2020/03/17 14:09
The game is great in all but it is so hard. Even some of the easy levels are extremely hard. The game is either to hard or I am too stupid. Good game though.
The reason why
by trekay russrich on 2020/03/17 14:05
They over price most of the levels
Great game; if only it was playable!
by JDY1960 on 2020/03/17 13:57
I would pay a few dollars for this game, but not a few dollars per day! Game play is very good but it’s such an obvious money grab I had to give up. Daily loyalty reward tokens are only enough for a few games if that! Instead of staying at the maximum reward, on day eight you go back to receiving the minimum reward of 10 tokens which isn’t even enough for one puzzle. What’s worse is that a puzzle that cost “x” amount of tokens one day, and you wait to play it the next when you have enough tokens, magically then cost even more! It’s a shame.
Addictive and really fun!
by Moellerfam on 2020/03/16 22:50
It’s super fun and addicting and I really enjoy solving the games. The one thing that’s annoying is that the ‘tokens’ regenerate SO slowly. I would play so much more if there was a way to earn tokens faster. I ended up with more than 20 THOUSAND coins and I always have to wait for tokens. After completing a game, there should be a reward of more tokens than coins.
Best game ever!! But... 😰
by The Tree Outside on 2020/03/16 16:31
I love this game so much! I listen to audiobooks and play this game daily. It is so relaxing, I love how each puzzle pack is so different and fun. But I hate how the green coins only restore up to 10 at a time. Once you unlock all the puzzles in a pack, you have to either watch ads or use coins and play old completed puzzles to get at max 3 green coins, which is dumb. The daily reward is nice but it does help unlock that much. I wish either your green coins could restore to more (20 or 30) or all puzzles costed 10 green coins. PLEASE FIX THIS!!! You could make it as an upgrade system, letting people spend their coins to have the green coins restore to more each time or something. Thanks!
Hard paywall
by Leftover Taco on 2020/03/16 14:18
It’s pretty scummy for them to cap the number of tokens at 10 and then make levels that cost more than that. I love this game but jesus christ to finish the entire game would put me in debt from buying extra tokens!
Day 5 tokens
by Snow queen59 on 2020/03/16 14:08
I don’t understand why when you open the app every day it often rolls back to day 1. I would think the incentive to play daily you would on day 5 continue to receive day 5 tokenswhen you play day 6 or ongoing. But even if it is day 4 I find the next day often it’s day 1 tokens given. It’s Odd. Don’t find it consistent.
Love it but..

I absolutely love this game however I was half way through the first world and the entire game restarted 😡 now every time I do more than 10 puzzles on it it restarts and makes me do everything over again.
Addicting game

So addicted
Love this game, except the token system
by Your Little Blonde Friend on 2020/03/14 20:04
This is one of my favorite games. I’ve played it for a while and it’s one of the few games I play every day. I can’t remember a time where I had technical difficulties or other issues. It’s consistently fun. My only issue is the token system. You need tokens to unlock the puzzles. The max amount of tokens that load over time is 10, which isn’t enough to play most puzzles. The daily rewards help, but even they aren’t always enough (unless you opened the app to receive the reward and then didn’t actually play any puzzles). You can also watch ads to get a token at a time, but only up to 8 per day. There’s “tasks” you can do through Tapjoy to get tokens, but there have been times when I’ve completed a task and not received tokens for it, so I’d say the Tapjoy stuff is a waste of time. You also get a prize for each puzzle you solve, but you receive coins the majority of the time. Coins can only be spent on hints. As I’ve gotten better at these puzzles I’ve ceased needing hints; I currently have 100k or so coins in my bank that I don’t plan on using. Rarely do you receive tokens as a prize. I get that this system drives revenue, but it seems excessively skewed towards needing to make a purchase. I wish that you could spend coins on tokens, that there were other ways to earn more than a few tokens, and/or the max loaded tokens was 20 or 30 (rather than 10). I’ve spent money on this game—I’m happy to do so occasionally to support developers of games I really enjoy. But I would have a lot more fun if the tokens weren’t so hard to get.

Picture cross is amazing!
by Davis Grozinger on 2020/03/14 15:16
Picture cross is the best game ever! It helps me strengthen my brain and my eyesight. There are so many different puzzles to choose from and that is awesome! But I request one thing, and it is that you either shorten the time between the one token you get every 5 minutes, or increase the amount of tokens you get each 5 minutes. But other than that, this game is my savior when it comes to me being bored! Thank you for making this game!
No cross saves
by girb0t on 2020/03/13 23:40
If you purchase on your iPad to get rid of ads, it won’t carry over to your iPhone. Progress doesn’t carry over either!
Fun casual game
by PlanetDianne on 2020/03/13 20:26
Easy to use interface and fun to play. Lots of puzzles to work through. One of the best pictogram apps out there.
Great Puzzle Game, No Ads
by Djsjsisix on 2020/03/13 06:56
I play this religiously, it’s an infinite source of puzzles.
Lots of ads, need more coins
by aquariusangel128 on 2020/03/11 22:36
I see the same ad. Every time it is crazy. Can you please update algorithm or whatever!! The game itself is fine. It is annoying you only have ten coins at a time and most puzzles are more than that. There is also a glitch with the timer right now so whenever I use or earn coins the timer restarts which is really annoying.
Really like but here’s a suggestion
by Satlo on 2020/03/11 17:25
I really enjoy playing these puzzles but I think it would be neat to award something for completing a whole puzzle set. To finish all 100 or 400 in a pack is a pretty good accomplishment. 😊
Almost perfect
by I'm leaving this review on 2020/03/11 04:34
I pretty much never use my coins because I consider myself pretty good at this game and other apps like this. Because of this I have over 100,000 coins, yet the green tokens are way harder to earn. I would absolutely LOVE to be able to play this game longer than one or two puzzles before I run out of tokens. If I could use my coins to get levels or honestly free levels with all the ads that you still have would be PERFECT (so take away the green token system) Also daily levels puzzle block would be very much fun as well. My main issue is the fact I can’t play endlessly until I decide to stop like other games.
Love! Love! Love!
by Chyanne 💗 on 2020/03/10 20:19
I find myself playing this game every chance I get! The different level puzzles really make you think and use your head! I’ve completed so many puzzles, my coinage is way up there. With that being said, I’ve found the rewards for the puzzles are mostly coins rather than tokens. The max amount of tokens is 10. Most of the puzzles cost more than 10 tokens. The daily reward does consist of tokens but it’s 15 max and that’s after day 4. I have so many coins i don’t know what to do with them, because I like to try not to use a hint unless necessary. Personally being able to buy more tokens with the coins I have collected in the game would be a major bonus. The +1 free token with the view of an advert only gets you so far because there’s 2 videos max most times. The tokens is the only issue I have with this game other than the lack of tokens I receive within a day, I absolutely love this game!
I love it but need to tweaked a little
by Kittychics on 2020/03/10 13:34
Ive been playing this game for years! It’s one of my favorite games to play on road trips. However, I would like a daily puzzle thing. Just to spice things up. Also, maybe need to be able to watch videos for coins and not just tokens.
Love it, but
by Eminico on 2020/03/10 02:04
I love the game, but I’ve maxed out all the levels and there’s no new ones yet. Trying to be patient and wait for more, but these are by far my favorite type of puzzle and the best app I’ve seen of them.
Amazing game
by sergusB on 2020/03/10 02:00
A nice fun and simple game with a nice interface and design.
Addictive

I love this game. I am playing it during my commute to work everyday. One suggestion I have for you is to add an undo button.

by nocando... on 2020/03/09 20:01
Honestly, I love absolutely everything about the game! However, if there was a way to change coins into tokens, that would be great, as I don’t need the hints. Also, maybe fewer ads in between puzzles would be great! I would definitely recommend this to everyone!
Good game, irritating monitization
by Urzathran on 2020/03/09 17:15
What was originally just irritating has been “updated” to the point I won’t be playing. Ads used to be skippable unless you wanted a reward. Now you get the full 30 second ad after every level. While still less than a lot of free apps, it has crossed the line for me. Gameplay itself is still excellent.
I love this game!!!!
by tigger21678 on 2020/03/09 13:13
I absolutely love this game!! Please add more puzzles!
Pay or Ads to play
by Knitler 2.0 on 2020/03/09 03:18
It’s fun at first because they give you plenty of tokens to play but eventually you have to either pay for more or complete offers to get more tokens. On top of that, there’s an ad after every game. Overall, the game itself is made well but long term I would just find a different app like this one.
The only Nonogram I’ll play!
by kateord on 2020/03/09 01:56
I will wait for a new puzzle pack before playing any other Nonograms. The puzzles are hard, but not so hard that you can’t have fun! I’ve spent hours playing and I’ll spend more time playing!
Great game
by Fun five on 2020/03/08 15:42
Not enough tokens available for free. Can’t solve puzzles without tokens
Mind enhancement!
by TI local on 2020/03/08 13:59
As fun, and challenging, as this game is,, the main reason I play it is to try to stave off ALS! They say keeping your brain active is a good way to do that,, and this game definitely does that! Thanks! After playing almost all of the boards, the game started acting up,, freezing up, and kicking you out of the app. The "help" section advises you to close the app, and reload it, to fix the problem. I did. It lost all the progress I had! Then, when I started all over, with the "tutorial", it froze up again! I'm done! There are other apps of this type!
Great game but....
by The demo is really on 2020/03/07 21:50
It’s a great game, super laid back and once you buy some coins all the ads going away it makes the game so much better. BUT the pay wall to complete a puzzle is super huge, it takes a ton of money if you want to play constantly. Definitely gotta pace yourself
Can’t collect green coins fast enough
by Lotsa$$$ on 2020/03/07 15:17
It takes too long to collect enough green coins to open the puzzles. There should be a way to buy the green coins with the other coins you earn in the game. I’ve got a lot of the regular coins and all I know that you can do with those is open previously played puzzles. If I’ve already done the puzzle once, I don’t want to solve it again.
Its great but

I like the consept but i want a new mode in the settings, its life mode. You get three lifes in each picture and if you get a square wrong than you lose a life. Sorry this review is short i have nothing else to say.

Have you ever thought about using digits showing puzzle price rather than locks on individual puzzles? One of the biggest annoyances my adult daughter and I discuss. I’ve really gotten far and my below concern is no longer my issue; I still do not spend real dollars. 3/5/20 All my available puzzles are over 11 tokens. I WILL not spend real dollars on any game, but I NEVER receive the ability to watch ads to play a game. I used to get them occasionally but I’m almost ready to delete the game as I have to keep re-playing others just to get a couple tokens to do a new. Not to mention I have to watch an ad any time you leave a screen, why not provide a token each time that happens. I don’t know the fix but it’s Just getting old! (Date unknown)

Currently My Favorite Puzzle
by dxturn07 on 2020/03/05 10:01
I have been playing this puzzle game for over a year, but I have never gotten bored. If you want to make the game more of a challenge, you can even try to solve puzzles without using the Xs. If you want a new challenge, I think you will love Picture Cross!
Still Love It
by me_art on 2020/03/05 01:10
I don’t play games much, but I need something for the long commute to work. I mostly read news and I pay this game. After a year on it I still like it and play it. Definitely give this a try!

Not iPod friendly
by LeafyBFDI on 2020/03/04 16:56
I’ve tried this game, and found out about “alternate” mode which is useful for small screens. It doesn’t even tell me how it works! So how am I supposed to play then? I keep making mistakes because the square I’m trying to touch doesn’t get touched but the one next it gets you do Ed.
Awesome game

All I can say is.....this game is awesome!!!!
Fantastic game!
by Cman96 on 2020/03/03 16:23
My ONLY complaint is that there’s one puzzle in the “Paris- Color” pack that is faulty and physically impossible to solve. Otherwise, I love the game. Constantly adding puzzles! Been playing for months!
Good game, scammed me out of money though
by DouglyOG on 2020/03/03 00:41
First off, the game is absolutely great. It’s challenging, yet not too challenging to where you want to give up. It has kept me entertained for hours. I went to watch an ad to get my 250 coins for some help on a puzzle, and there were no ads available so I went ahead and purchased the $10 coin pack. My purchase went through, but I have yet to receive my coins....very disappointed in that. It may only be $10, but I received nothing from that purchase. Please make this right if you could, thanks.
Great game
by The Queen 011 on 2020/03/02 16:46
I love this game. 💕. Thank you so much for the recent update. Love it so much I have almost completed one of the new puzzles. Hope to see you add more puzzles more often. Now you just need to add some “color” puzzles. Thank you for the awesome game experience.

Ads are loud even when muted
by Anonykegs on 2020/03/02 05:40
When phone is muted and sound/fx are off, ads still play with volume.
Amazing! I don’t know how they do it.
by ddkemp on 2018/11/01 15:32
What’s so amazing? Well, I’ve played hundreds of these “nonogram” type puzzles, and it seems, eventually, you’ll find a puzzle in a series that you will be forced to use a clue or two in order to solve the puzzle. In Picture Cross, I completed every one of the summer puzzles without ever needing a clue! That doesn’t mean I didn’t have to start over from scratch a few times; I’m not saying I don’t make plenty of errors, but when I patiently went back and reworked the puzzles (often more than a few times!) I found I could complete every one of the puzzles from the simplest to the trickiest without resorting to any kind of clue whatsoever! That, to me, puts this game way above all others in this category. The only change I would like to see is for the Xs (that you put in the squares) to be either much thinner or greatly toned down to like a 30% value. The bold dark brown Xs as they stand are just a bit too distracting. It would be nice too if we could change the color of the boxes as well. Brown is…well…brown. But my thanks to the developers for making this game so enjoyable, challenging, and somehow always solvable*. *well, as far as I’ve gone, this is what I’ve found to be the case, anyway. Edit: I’ve now completed the “winter” puzzle and still have had no need to resort to the use of hints.
Great game!
by l.j.t.n.m.m on 2020/01/02 07:19
For a while, I found these types of games almost impossible to do because I just had a hard time learning strategies to use while playing them, but now that I know a few tricks I absolutely love them! This one in particular because there are so many that range from super easy to super hard and you can just play forever.. That is if you have enough tokens, which is one of my minor complaints about this game. You can earn hundreds of coins in a short amount of time, but hardly any tokens which you need to unlock each puzzle. It’s kind of annoying because I would play these all day but I constantly run out of tokens and have to wait until the next day for the daily reward or watch a bunch of ads for one token each and you can only watch 8 ads per day as a way to earn tokens. There’s packages you can buy but I play free games because they’re free, not so I can spend money. Especially with how fast the tokens go. The puzzles don’t all cost the same amount of tokens to unlock so they can go pretty quick. So I just open the game every day and earn my tokens to save up for a bit and then play until I run out, and then do the same thing over again. Other than that I love it! If you like these types of puzzle games then you’d really enjoy this game.
Overall pretty good but has so big downsides
by 24maddy on 2020/03/25 06:02
I overall love the game and are addicted to playing it. Only the problems I have with are some of great concern. First, the games level systems are completely weird, sometimes I’ll play an easy level which would end up being harder than a medium level and medium and hard levels are pretty much the same thing. Second, occasionally when I get my daily tokens, it just doesn’t give them to me. This especially happens when it is at the bigger rewards. Take today, I go to get my daily tokens, the screen pops up and I press collect, the screen goes away and I haven’t gotten my tokens. This really is a problem as tokens are the only way to play a level. Third, the levels cost way more tokens the. The. The app gives us, without having to resort to paying with real money. As you go through the levels the start to cost more to play, so even go as high as 60 tokens, this usually wouldn’t be a problem for games but in this one it is because they only refill your tokens to 10. You have to find ways to gain the extra 50 tokens. As someone who can’t afford to pay for more, collecting that many could take a pretty long time for just one level. Even with all it’s downsides I wouldn’t stop playing the game. I just wish they would fix them so I can have more of a good time, instead of a stressful one while playing.
My favorite game in the App Store!
by nextalpha7d on 2019/09/29 20:23
Apple user since 08 but have never left a review so here we go... I have had this game since May 2018. It is September 2019 and I’ve done over 1500 of the puzzles, never using any real money to play. I’ve seen a lot of people complain about having to buy tokens. With enough patience it’s possible but I do have to agree that the tokens to coin ratio is a bit of a smudge on an otherwise phenomenal game. Right now I’m sitting on over 105,000 coins and have completed all of the packs but like 2 of them but now I’m to the point where I can do one puzzle a day most days and that’s really disappointing, unless I open one a day and then don’t actually play for about a week. I appreciate the daily prizes and the doubles for watching the videos, but on the Paris and New York packs, you have so few 10 tokens or below, it takes you months to get enough tokens to cover them all. I have to say, I enjoy the color ones even more than the black and white one and I hope you guys release more of those levels. You guys have done a great job with this game, and I’m not sure what’s different about this game in comparison to the other nonogram games, but this is my favorite. Keep creating more level and I will continue to keep playing!
Overall bad
by K-daWg#5 on 2019/06/03 04:45
I love playing nonograms. I would consider myself to be extremely good at it. I play them 24/7. Actually playing the game itself is fun. It’s just everything else that isn’t. The whole solve one nonogram to unlock the a part of the puzzle seems fine, and I can understand why some people like it. But I personally don’t, and it’s hard to zoom in on a certain piece you want to do. I would try and zoom in and accidentally press a piece I didn’t want to do and accidentally use my tokens to play it. I would much prefer have levels instead. Tokens itself are bad. For some levels, there’s a timer to see how long it takes you to finish the puzzle and you will use that amount of tokens for how long it takes you to finish. The “pause”button isn’t even a pause button. It’s literally the button that looks like the settings. The only way you know it’s the pause button is because it says pause at the top. The puzzles are deceptive. I would consider “hard” levels to be super hard. Most puzzles force you to buy hints too. You look at a puzzle at every single angle and there’s literally not even one move you can make without having to buy a hint. It forces you to use coins. The game mechanics could be a lot better too. I could keep going on and say at least 8 more problems but I feel like I’ve gone far enough. There’s definitely better nonogram games you can get.
So obsessed
by Abby021202 on 2019/02/21 20:03
I dont usually write reviews, and by usually I mean never this is the first one I’m writing, but it said to write a review if I’m enjoying the game, and I’m really enjoying the game. I don’t even know how long I’ve had this game but I absolutely love it. I didn’t think that a puzzle game would ever not be boring, but somehow I’ve never gotten bored of it. I love how the packs are themed and it makes a big picture that goes together. I’m really surprised that I’ve had this game for so long, I usually get bored of games within a week but according to the stats thing I’ve spent almost four full days in the game. The ads aren’t even that bad, you can skip them after 5 seconds. I usually get really annoyed by ads but they aren’t bad. I really like how you can watch ads for one puzzle, but I wish the option came up more often. I wish it were easier to get tokens too but then I guess it would be boring because you could do them all at once. This is a lot longer than I intended it to be but basically, this is a GREAT game, and I’m obsessed. The only downside is I have to wait for tokens which is why I’m writing this but I’m not complaining about the tokens, it makes sense. I guess that’s it. Awesome game!
Good but needs a few improvements
by Styrojake on 2018/05/15 14:15
First let me start off by saying I absolutely love this game. It’s challenging so it keeps me occupied but it’s not impossible to beat which is how a game should be so good job on that. I do have just a couple of suggestions for improvement though. 1) I think it would be great if y’all could add a way to zoom in or something because on my phone the squares are really really small so it’s easy to accidentally tap the wrong one. 2) I think that for playing levels you should earn tokens more often instead of coins because the game requires tokens to keep playing and coins are only used for hints, which I never use. I have like 16,000 coins and hardly any tokens, which is aggravating because I never use coins. Or something y’all could do instead is make a way to buy tokens with in game coins that you’ve earned so that I can actually use my coins. 3) There are a few too many advertisements. Every time you click on something in the game it brings up an advertisement so I think that if there are going to be that many advertisements there should be a reward for watching them. Overall though this is a really great game and I really love it, I just think it could use a couple improvements.
Money Hog! 🐷
by Silver Garnet on 2019/09/28 12:29
Waaaay too token orientated with limited options for getting tokens without payment!!! Asking for money ALL the time !!!! A complete turnoff!!!!! Sure, you get some free tokens per day, but these are hardly enough to play even one game! You can watch ads for a few more tokens, but again, may not be enough to add up to playing a game! Although they offer ways to get tokens free by completing some vendor ad requirements- I've tried some of these & I NEVER received my tokens- so it was a waste of my time!!! All this particular game is designed to do it tease you with a little, so that you become a buying machine for tokens!!!! BUY, BUY, BUY MORE TOKENS!!!!! This is the mantra of this game!!! It's Especially irritating when you finally have enough tokens saved up for a game & the puzzle turns out to be a simple one!!! I enjoyed this game in the beginning, the designs are cute, BUT NOW ITS a TURNOFF. The coins are useless & serve no purpose for me, & you can't turn them into tokens- which are the only thing you can use to buy a puzzle! The tokens are too hard to get without payment, & even if you have tokens, the amount needed to open a puzzle is ridiculous!!! Frankly, there are too many other choices out there for pixal logic puzzles that don't have these issues for me to bother much with this particular version!!! Don't waste your time or money!!!!!
Misleading to the point of being fraud
by Stickboy46001 on 2018/06/12 14:52
First of all the game itself is fun and addicting. The problem lies in the tokens. They only give you a hand full of tokens and once you get far enough each puzzle costs 20 to 30 tokens. They don't regenerate very fast so unless you do the "quests" you can't play the game anymore unless you pay real money (lots of it). So you look through the list of quests and they look pretty simple. That's where the fraud comes in. I find one that says "take a 2 question survey for 38 tokens". So I click on it, take a 5 question survey and get 2 tokens. Ok whatever, let's go to the next. This survey says 4 questions for 60 tokens. So I start the survey and it starts asking for all sorts of personal info, but I go along with it. About 50 questions later (when the app says it would be 4), I get a prompt that I have to actually order a product with real money to finish the survey. That wasn't what I agreed to so I skip it. I get zero tokens for that, but they took all my info. So basically don't expect to actually get tokens from the quests, they rarely actually give you what they say they will. Between that and the constant barrage of ads, I can't recommend this to anyone. It's a blatant money grab game that will flat out lie to you in order to get you to click on things. It probably should be pulled from the store IMO
A fun, typical game
by I Am Seth on 2018/03/07 20:07
This game is very intriguing, and has puzzles that get your mind active. There are different difficulties of puzzles, and many to choose from. This game allows you to play any puzzle, as long as you have enough tokens. Now, for someone who constantly plays games on their phones, this might be restricting as you have to wait for the tokens to build back up over time. But for someone like myself who only plays a little bit at a time, it is a perfect system. I don't always play, so my tokens have built up to the point that when I do play, I can do any level I want and not have to worry about needing more tokens. Furthermore, if you're in the middle of a puzzle and need to stop, you don't need to worry because you can come back later and the progress you've made on the puzzle will save. You can also restart puzzles if you've messed it up too much, and it doesn't consume tokens. Overall, I would recommend this game to those that need a good game that will keep them concentrated and thinking for a short break in their day. An addition: you can change your time for more tokens. Easy quick way to get them, never pay.
Addicting but could use some tweaks
by SumSumSummer03 on 2019/11/30 06:30
I have been playing Picture Cross for about 3 months now. I absolutely love it and would recommend it to anyone. I am just VERY frustrated about the tokens, like many others. According to other reviews, the cost of the puzzles accelerate. I agree with changing the way the tokens work and I also do not use my coins. But....the thing that gets me the most is the stupid TAPJOY. It says take a short survey for 53 tokens and I’m like sweet!! I spend 15 miserable minutes complete the survey, press finish, go back to picture cross, and get 0 TOKENS!!! I would like to earn my tokens when I complete things like that. Also I sometimes take a survey that uses personal information and then after like 15 questions it finally says: sorry but you have not qualified for any surveys! If these things were fixed, I would absolutely love this more. OOH last suggestion I think that you should be able to use whatever tokens you have. For instance, if this puzzle costs 20 tokens, but I only have 10, I could put in the 10 I have and wait until I have another 10 to complete the cost. If these things were fixed I would never stop them laying this game!!! Also, question. Does the 10 tokens recharge every day or do you have to use them?
Wish I could give it 5...
by Dumpster Diva on 2018/10/31 04:01
Because everything about playing is spectacular! I actually give this game credit for helping me quit smoking - kept me so distracted and occupied that I made it through the temptation! It’s challenging, problem-free, friendly interface, I love this game. BUT - you earn barely enough tokens to play, nor enough coins. I did spend money along the way to buy tokens (considered it better than spending on cigarettes). And I have replayed most all the medium / hard puzzles countless times to get more tokens, and have endured the ads over and over again as well. But there’s just no way to enjoy this game unless you’re willing to spend money. As you accumulate tokens, It raises the cost of the games. It has all the silly quests etc., but you get virtually nothing for completing them, nor for completing a board. And having completed EVERY puzzle, I am in the situation where I can no longer play at all. I can’t earn coins anymore because there are no new puzzles, and without coins I can’t even replay puzzles. So developers - Check my account - I’ve spent a considerable amount over the last few months. And you’ve effectively locked me out. Come off you’re greed just a notch or two and I’ll gladly give you five stars.
Great game! Just a couple tweaks
by Platimor on 2019/03/04 03:22
I’ve played through about 250 puzzles at this point and have enjoyed it a lot! One issue I see however is that it can be very easy to go through tokens, especially when even some super easy puzzles cost up to 50 tokens (the max I’ve seen) and take a very short time to solve. My suggestion to fix this would be a conversion system from coins to tokens. I do realize this is incentive for the players to purchase more tokens, but for me it is just a deterrent from playing. For players like myself who also don’t like using any hints, this would give some value to the coins. Another fix I’d like to see is a change to the screen where you are selecting your puzzle: when you tap on a puzzle, you can see the part of the picture underneath it that is to be revealed after solving the puzzle. I think this just may be a glitch. Another side note, there are also just a few puzzles I’ve seen so far that have multiple solutions, but that doesn’t really seem to be a problem. Other than that, I think this is a great game! Numerous puzzles to keep you interested for a long time.
I wish I had something to do with my coins?
by vaguefamiliarity on 2019/02/10 22:30
I really love this game. Yes, the finished puzzles often aren’t recognizable but if I want a beautifully finished puzzle I would just work from a nonogram physical book (I have some that go up to 50x50 grids!), which is much more rewarding anyway. The token system is not my favorite, but I’ve never had the issue of not receiving tokens for a quest, as many others have complained about. Maybe I’m just lucky. I don’t find the “super hard” terribly challenging but they do make me wrack my brain a bit. I’ve been making myself solve “super easy” and “easy” puzzles without using any x’s and that’s given me a new challenge I enjoy. So why, after all this, did I give this three stars instead of five? Because I have 134,290 coins and literally nothing to do with them. I’ve never used a hint and don’t see myself doing that any time soon. Completing the puzzle is rewarding but I always inwardly groan a little when I get coins instead of more tokens. To the developers: If we could convert coins into tokens, even at a high exchange rate, that would ease some of my frustration with this useless commodity. Is this something you’ve ever considered?
Finally!

A wonderful logic pic cross puzzle! It's got some good challenges but also not impossible to beat. The color puzzles are a nice change and challenge! The format is nice too! I really love this game and have been playing it for a couple years. I love that there's awesome updates too! A couple of wishes though, I wish you could exchange tokens/gold for coins/ green tokens to play games as I don't often need hints and have a lot of gold racked up. I also feel likes there's a lot a lot of ads even for a free version. I don't mind the watching ads for more levels but sometimes really long ads pop up when I win a level and it can crash the game. I wouldn't mind a pop up picture ad but the videos always cut off music and take forever to get to the next level and I find myself closing the game instead of continuing to play. ( Side question what ads disappear when you buy something? All of them or the banner or? I was unsure. I'll gladly buy something if the video ads go away at the end of levels! ) But for real this game is awesome!
There are some wishes, but overall just great.

I tried other games of this type, but the puzzles in this one keep me entertained enough to play everyday for half a year. I like what I cannot say what is on my picture even after I finish the piece and it’s colored by the game — this level of abstraction actually is a great plus, because it keeps me from guessing and leave only logical approach available. Somehow the technical part works better for me here, than in other games: I like how I can draw lines of positive bits or crosses right on top of already opened parts without worrying to mess up. And yes, you can change coins for tokens in a way — just open the part you already solved and instead of re-doing it for tokens, just press on the rows and pay with your coins to finish the whole thing in seconds; repeat as many times as you need to get the amount of necessary tokens. So I even do not see this ‘token system’ as a real shortcoming. My biggest wish: I play on my tablet, so I would appreciate if the screen of the game could rotate! :)
Changing my original review
by TheBossyMom on 2017/12/29 13:14
So initially I reviewed the game as fun but not enjoying the ads. Then I (finally) completed all the quests, only to discover that in order to get enough tokens to play some of the puzzles (30, 40, 50 token ones), I had to wait DAYS for the tokens to build up...unless I wanted to pay. Here’s the deal, I don’t mind to pay $5 and get 2000 tokens and have, at the most, puzzles be 30-token puzzles, but when 80% of the games have squares that are 35+ tokens, you would have to spend a lot of money to even finish. Several days I opened the app, just to get the additional tokens so I could play some of the higher ‘priced’ puzzles but I am about done with that process. You would think the developers would allow you to use these almost-useless coins to purchase more tokens. But if you keep having to wait days to earn enough tokens, then...you’re quickly going to lose customers. Have the tokens generate 10 every 30 minutes CONTINUOUSLY so that you could check back in a few hours and have 60, 80, 100 tokens to work with. That would help. But I’m not spending $100+ to buy tokens for hundreds of tiny puzzles. I totally love the game...but this caused me to reduce it from 4 stars to 2.
Only Good for Small Sessions
by Doomkeaper on 2020/03/19 21:33
Let me start out by saying the game itself is very solid. The puzzles are good and range a lot in difficulty. I have had a lot of fun playing. That said, this game has a fatal flaw that makes it only playable for about 10-15min a day. You will eventually hit a point where the puzzles cost more of the tokens than the game actually allows you to accumulate for free. 10 tokens is the max you can earn without the daily token reward, purchasing more, or watching a 30-45sec advertisement. More than half the puzzles in each collection cost 11+ tokens to unlock. I now only pay this game once in the morning with the daily tokens payout because paying for tokens would be ridiculous with how many other free games just like this exist. If you just want 1-3 daily puzzles to play for a short period, then this is fine for you to get your fix. However, if you want this to be a puzzle game you can play continuously, then be prepared to fork out money to play because it is impossible to earn enough tokens to even play some puzzles without paying or waiting for your next daily token payout.
It’s good but it’s not as fun as it could be
by callyfornia on 2018/07/20 06:07
I definitely like this app but I don’t love it. It’s more occupying than it is fun—at least for me. I do have a couple suggestions that might make it better but one of them is based on a different but very similar game and might be a big change. 1) Let us zoom in! It’s so hard to press the correct tiny square and I can’t stress enough how annoying it is to constantly be tapping unnecessarily on 5 different squares before getting the right one. 2) I used to play this game on Facebook called colorcross but I can’t find it anywhere else. What I liked about that game is that in each puzzle there were multiple colors and you had to fill in the entire picture. Personally I think it makes it more fun because we can see the picture coming to life while we’re working on it instead of leaving it looking incomplete. I just started playing this game so I’m not sure if this feature shows up later in the game but I’m not very hopeful that it does. It’s a good game but it definitely could be better.
Fun game, but token system is slow
by Jill P. on 2018/06/11 18:18
UPDATE - I am increasing the number of stars because I was just a awarded almost 300 tokens. Not sure if that was a result of this review, or because of the apps and surveys mentioned below. If it is because of the apps and games, which I suspect it is, it sure took a long time! But I am happy, and I do still love to play this game! I love the puzzles, so fun to play, but I am abandoning this game. The token system is not working. I try to watch a video for one measly token and it always says I have reached my limit of eight tokens for the day. Do the ten max tokens I earn every half-hour count towards that?? If so, don't give me the ten and let me watch unlimited videos. Isn't that the point anyways? Advertising? Besides, I have also taken countless surveys, downloaded and played numerous games to the point where I should have gotten the tokens promised, but no tokens were actually awarded. I emailed once and they gave me some tokens, but I will not email each time. I am abandoning this game. Till they make the reward token system better.
Not Even Microtransactions Let Me Play More.
by MySalsaBros on 2019/06/03 15:58
I love almost every bit of this game. The mechanics, the personality, each and every puzzle, and all the little details in the art. It’s super fun to play, I just wish I could play it more. The token system really made things hard on how much I can play the game, considering I need to wait to play or I pay. And considering the wait time on tokens has a max limit of 10 tokens, that means you can’t play any puzzles that have more than ten tokens (which could be all that’s left, meaning you have to wait for the daily tokens the next day). I even paid ten dollars for 1500 tokens, but those only lasted a little under half a week. I just want to play your awesome game more, but the token system keeps me from doing that. Even paying doesn’t let me play whenever I want. This is the one blatant issue I have with the game, and I would really appreciate it if tokens could at least be replenished to twenty tokens or something (you would have to wait in-game to get ‘em, though). If possible, just try to make getting more puzzles not so much trouble to get.
My good review of this game will be mentioned last
by Politicalcrysis on 2018/06/30 05:52
This game is fun until the need to spend money comes into playing the game. You get a max of ten coins to recharge. Most of the puzzles cost more than that to unlock. 11 coins to unlock a puzzle and sometimes 40 to unlock others. How can I avoid paying money to finish it? They offer watching ads but you only get 5 coins maximum and other times they don’t even offer watching ads to earn a whopping one coin per ad. So now I’m at a point where I’ve worked through all of the puzzles and now I have to wait for the daily reward of just opening the app without playing just to save up enough coins to play maybe one puzzle every couple of days. This game is pay to win. My love for the game started at two stars for the frustration but now I change it to one star because now I’m talking about it. Make a game to be fun but if you’re going to charge for it, charge me, don’t charge my loyalty. You won’t get any money out of me for coins to continue playing a game. I’d rather pay 0.99 with ads than pay you 9.99 for enough coins to keep me paying for maybe an hour. This game is good. It’s worth charging money for. But it’s not worth charging you continuously.
Predatory spam from attempting to earn tokens
by Sydthkid18 on 2019/06/19 17:20
I really enjoy this game, however something strange happened when I tried to earn tokens from taking a survey. The survey I attempted claimed to be for KFC. The actual questions in the survey had no substance nor anything to do with KFC, and at the end of the question it requested contact information. I put fake information except for my email, in case I needed to receive an email to get the tokens. It then redirected me to some other site and asked for more info, and ultimately I gave up and did not earn any coins. The next day, I started receiving emails from Judicial Watch, an ultra-conservative right wing nonprofit organization. I unsubscribed immediately, but kept receiving emails from them. I have unsubscribed multiple times, to no avail. Not once in that process was Judicial Watch mentioned, and I’m pretty sure it’s illegal to collect emails in such a misleading/concealed manner? I’m wondering if anyone else has had this same issue, and also requesting that the developers take more care in what kind of advertisements they put into their games.
Very good game, just needs some tuneups
by malonej7 on 2019/04/03 13:01
The game is very fun and addicting. I especially like the new color-specific puzzles that make it more challenging. Couple things they need to fix to make this game 5 stars: 1. Make the cost of each puzzle visible without having to click on each square. I’ve wasted so much time clicking around 50 squares to find one I can “afford” with my current coin total. Would be so much better if you just put the amounts on the puzzles themselves, show only the ones we can afford in some other way, or let us search for ones in a certain range of prices. 2. Stop ripping people off. I spent some money to buy a bunch of coins early on in the game and I assumed I spent enough to open every puzzle. But i was WAYYY off. It’s not worth buying coins unless you’re willing to spend 100s of dollars. And if you are, I almost feel bad for you. Just wait for the daily “allowance” and spend those coins. It keeps you from being too addicted and doing all the puzzles at once anyways.
Great Game
by Misoxfan on 2017/10/05 11:46
The game is fun and challenging at most levels. Realize this is a free game that is supported by ads. After each level an ad will pop up. The ads are repetitive. Same ads play over and over and you get to the point where you don’t even engage in the ads because you have seen the same ad over and over right after each level. At least mix the ads up! As in other reviews, it’s frustrating to advance in the game after you get to a certain level because of tokens. You can earn tokens several ways- you can get that as a daily bonus, they regenerate within a certain period up to 10 tokens and on certain levels you can get bonus tokens. When a level costs more than 10 tokens you will only be able to play one level that day. What fun is that? When you want to play a game, don’t you normally want to play more than a few minutes? It’s a shame that it’s such a great game and you have to ration your tokens and strategize how to use your tokens to play a level?
Very pleased with this app.
by xChrista on 2019/12/14 02:22
I don’t leave reviews much, if at all. But I will say this game is worth it no matter the reason. It does take tokens to open the puzzles, which in my opinion helps you from blowing through every puzzle pack in no time. I’ll agree tokens are slightly hard to come by, unless you win them from a puzzle completion, or the daily gift. However if you use your coins, you can replay already solved puzzles, you get up to 3 tokens for resolving it. Which to me is nice, if I just need a couple more to open the next piece. Not to mention, occasionally you can watch an ad after completing puzzles to get extra tokens as well. I do have a bunch of coins I don’t know if I’ll ever use up, and sometimes my game does “lag” a bit which can be hard when you’re on a roll. But overall this game is totally worth the time. I’ve been close to completing all the puzzle packs, and then they update and add more packs. So I haven’t run out yet!
Perfect Picross
by Gameguy999 on 2019/06/27 16:50
This is the most perfect any free picross game can get. Of course the game has ads, and the token system can be annoying sometimes, but the game is completely free and they have to make money somehow. I never NEVER buy any micro transactions but this game was so good I just wanted to support the developers that much. If ads really bother you, if you purchase any item at all, every ad disappears (you can still watch an ad manually for extra tokens) which means you get your purchased item(s) and all ads taken away as a bonus. The only downside that I can possibly think of is the token system. You need tokens to unlock a level to play and they refill slowly over time. Completing some levels earns you tokens, and if you log in you also get some, but in the earlier packs you just blow through tokens so quickly it can be frustrating sometimes. Overall though, I really enjoy this game and I can’t recommend it enough if you love picross.
Great game if you ok with pay to play.
by cosmic gate crasher on 2019/07/07 17:28
This is my second logic puzzle style game I downloaded and, initially, I was very happy because this game offered more challenging puzzles. Fast forward a few days (depending on how long it takes you to solve the puzzles and how often you play) and I noticed I ran out of tokens to unlock puzzles. I got confused because I had so many coins from solving puzzles. Tokens are used to unlock hints. “Ohh... Well I don’t want hints. I want to keep playing.” So I see this icon to get 10 tokens by clicking Facebook and posting on my page. Long story short, I didn’t get any tokens, I complained to development team, got a nice apology, they updated their “known issues” section, still no tokens, and now they are ignoring my request to escalate. Developing company doesn’t care about customers. If they have an auto reply their response will probably say something along the lines of “We’re sorry to hear you’ve had problems with Picture Cross.” Lol also these games don’t have an undo function if you accidentally click on wrong row or column. This game is designed for apple pens or thin tip stylus. Look for another developer. Uninstalling right after I hit send.
Awesome game but a few suggestions!
by careshaw98 on 2019/08/08 23:20
I absolutely love this game and I have consistently played it for months! It is challenging, but not too challenging and I thoroughly love it! My biggest gripe about this game is that when you finish a puzzle pack, you don’t get any token rewards for it. This was extremely disappoint when I spent months working on the World’s Biggest Puzzle, expecting to get some kind of reward for finishing it, and I got nothing. It would just be nice to get a token reward for completing a puzzle pack so that you have some to get you started on your next puzzle pack! Next, I think that for the daily reward, you should be able to watch an ad everyday to double your reward, not just randomly. Sometimes I only get to double my daily reward once every week, if that, and it would be nice for that to be a consistent opportunity! I love this game and it is one of my favorites, I just would like to see those few changes be made!!
Too hard
by lilack blossom on 2018/07/15 19:38
So I get this game thinking it would show me a pic and I would have to try and match it but that is not what it is at all . This is the hardest game I've ever played. It's not like I thought it was going to be .which they probably thought would be to easy , but it probably would be really hard because have you ever done one of those pictures when you were a kid in those coloring books. The ones where you have to try to match the picture it already gives you part of it. It was really hard right? So don't you think they could've done that instead where you have to try to drag the line to make the picture that would've been a much more fun game. This way is way too hard. Now don't get me wrong their prices on the gems are very low. But the game is so hard once you get one row it doesn't match the other one so you end up losing your mind over what square goes where . And sometimes I have to just buy more gems and tap on the row to finish the level it's just ridiculous. So to anyone who is looking to buy this game don't it's way too hard if you're looking for a challenge and it's a game for you and if you're not don't get it .
Updated based on dev responsiveness!
by Rhia Jarvis on 2019/07/17 04:54
Edit: originally I gave two stars, but I’m updating my original rating because I’m impressed by the devs. They actually seem to have listened to all our feedback, and they’ve instituted changes so it’s now totally feasible to play without purchasing any currency directly (just watching a few ads). Thank you guys so much for listening to our feedback, and thanks for the awesome game!! Original review below: I loved this game, would check in nearly every single day and play at least a level or two. You used to earn 10 tokens on the first and second(?) check ins in a row, then increasing up to 20, 30, etc. On the last day, you earned 40, so that with the normal 10 you got daily, you would have 50 - the maximum amount needed to pay for any particular level. Now, they’ve changed it so the maximum you can get logging in is 15 - meaning you can get a total of 25 at once per day. They’ve effectively changed it so that you can no longer afford the most expensive levels without actually spending real money in the game. Since the cutoff for watching advertisements is 8 tokens earned daily, you can no longer play every day if you want to afford the expensive levels. It’s very easy to get to the point where you only have the expensive levels left - now, anything over 33 tokens will have to wait. Honestly, it’s so disappointing. I loved this game.
Great Game
by Trhea92 on 2019/05/06 03:48
I want to start off saying I’m completely addicted to this game, and I hate to be! It’s amazingly fun and I have over 1.5 days of play time (yes days). I know every game maker is trying to bleed us completely dry off of micro transactions, and this game is no exception. It’s seems like I never used to run out of tokens, you earn them randomly from completing quests, achievements or the random levels. The last updates have absolutely killed the rate you earn tokens at, the last 30 puzzles I played I might have received a total of 40 tokens, which is absolutely nothing compared that it takes anywhere from 8-50 to do a single level! I’ve spent real money of token packages only to run out 5 levels later because the token cost is so high! The max you can earn for free is 10 and the more are a few levels that I have yet to compete because the cost 30+! It’s absolutely absurd to make a single level cost that much and to rarely earn tokens via regular play! Will not recommend playing until they have fixed the token return rates!
Love the game, but one MAJOR FLAW!
by H2OLGD on 2017/09/18 00:06
The game itself is super fun, keeps the mind engaged and thinking. Which is fantastic for everyone who uses these apps for the purposes that I do. Distraction from major pain that I live with every single day. I love the games that can engage my mind so thoroughly, which this does. So great game. BUT ......... the only way to keep playing is to purchase more blocks, with tokens. And there is no way to earn more than 5 tokens in one day, and you can only get those by watching 5 different commercials. Otherwise you have to buy the tokens. That's just ridiculous. And each tiny little square to open costs more than 5 tokens. So you can basically play one box a day without having to purchase anything. Don't make it a free game if you're not going to let us have additional ways to earn tokens for the squares!!!! You should be able to earn tokens for each square you complete, not have to pay for them. Because as I said beforehand. It's a fun game, and not everyone can afford to keep buying squares.
Really fun but heading in the wrong direction
by Manderson1188 on 2019/08/08 15:22
I love this game and have spent a disgusting amount of time in it, clearing almost 2000 puzzles. It’s become a daily routine of mine to open the app, collect the daily tokens and complete a few puzzles while I am in between things. My main issue is that the game is becoming more and more stingy with the costs of unlocking each puzzle, and it is starting to make me reconsider my time in the game. Most of the packs walk a fine line between having cheap puzzles mixed with super expensive ones, this left you with plenty to do and let you strategically save your tokens to pay for the high cost ones. Unfortunately, the recent Paris Pack has so many high cost puzzles that I am constantly stuck waiting and saving to buy the next puzzle. I’m all for spending some money to support this game, but the current prices do not tempt me at all... why would I spend money on a currency that will be gone in 2 puzzles? If the current pricing structure is a trend going forward then I will be uninstalling the game.
Great, except for the lag.
by Panda5315 on 2017/12/16 02:46
I absolutely love this game and the concept of it. There are a variety of levels, from beginners to challenging, which allows a range for all kinds of players and also allows practice. How to play nonograms is explained well in the tutorial, and it isn't terribly redundant. The fact that each level makes a picture gives the game more purpose, and there's motivation to continue. The only issue I have is how laggy the game is. Sometimes the game will randomly shut down or exit for no reasons also, whenever I start the game, the screen freezes up for a good five seconds or more before I can slide left or right to pick a level. Once I pick a level, that screen then freezes up, and sometimes it takes many clicks before a level will open. Other than this, I like the game a lot, and I hope they come up with more great updates in the future. This last updates with the additional levels is awesome!
Glitchy?
by InnieNinner on 2019/12/27 21:44
Love this game, I’ve had it for months and I play it daily. I’ve never had a problem until recently. For some reason, it freezes up and doesn’t let me exit out of the app. I started thinking the problem was with my iPad but I’m noticing a pattern; the freeze issues are only when I open this game. It would open and work fine, then it would be unresponsive and not put the dots where I need them to go, so I’d try to exit out of the game but my home button on the iPad wouldn’t work. I would try to lock the iPad to turn it off and sometimes it won’t work. Again, I thought it was my iPad but this issue only occurs when I play this game, which is only a few minutes each day, considering I play many other games for hours without any issues whatsoever. This game deserves five stars but since I am currently unable to play, I’m giving it four. Fix it please, I miss playing it and it’s been a few days since it stops working.
Mostly love this game!
by shann730 on 2018/10/31 17:19
I’m changing this from my original review. Now that I’ve been playing a while and figured out how to get tokens without spending money or doing ridiculous surveys that guarantees spam emails and phone calls (You just have to replay puzzles). I love These puzzles. The hard ones are hard enough to be challenging but not so hard you can’t figure it out without a cheat. The easy ones are a quick, fun distraction. My only real complaint is how long it takes to get new puzzles. I’ve been done with all the puzzles for two weeks now and since I do them without paying for tokens I didn’t finish them unusually fast. I’m still using the app because I’m using this downtime to replay puzzles and earn tokens for when a new puzzle is up but that gets old after a while. So new puzzles faster (or the big 400 square puzzles instead of all 64 square puzzles) would make it better so there was less wait time between games.
Fun but annoying
by Jbeansy6 on 2019/01/19 13:51
The puzzles are great and addicting, when you can actually play them! The constant barrage of ads, slow token generation, and high “cost” of unlocking puzzles makes this more aggravating than fun. Unlocking achievements, completing trophy collections, and completing quests gives no additional tokens or coins, so what is the point of that!? The additional “earn more tokens” activities are complete scams. I’ve wasted so much of my time watching ads or playing other games to get to certain levels, only to never receive the promised awards. Sure, you can replay completed puzzles to earn a whole 2 tokens a pop, but that means to unlock one 30-40 token puzzle you’d have to replay 10-15 puzzles which wastes a lot of time. This game has great potential but having to wait several days or waste hours replaying old ones just to have enough tokens to play a new puzzle is a huge drawback. So is having to watch an ad for every darn thing. Finish a puzzle, watch an ad. Go back to the main screen, watch an ad first. Etc. WAY too many ads!
Fun Game But...
by Jseammjohnson on 2017/11/08 00:23
I really do enjoy this game. It is engaging and challenging at the same time. My only complaint is how long it takes to gain tokens to continue playing the different puzzles. The puzzles cost varying amounts of tokens. There are a few ways to get the tokens: wait for the once daily reward, happen upon tokens as a prize after completing a puzzle (this doesn’t happen nearly often enough), replay a completed puzzle (this can get repetitive), watch an ad for one free token, purchase them, or wait for your tokens to regenerate to 10. Having 10 tokens is nice if you want to wait for that regeneration but after a while the puzzles cost much more than 10 tokens. In fact, I’m only writing this review because I’m hoping the developers will recognize the need to open up more tokens more often and so I can get the promised 20 free tokens. It’s a fun game and I really wish I could play more consistently without always running out of tokens.
Very enjoyable, good overall game :)
by Kmkirchhefer on 2018/04/25 14:24
I have enjoyed playing this game for about 2 weeks now. Pros: it’s not spammed with adds, they come on after finished a couple puzzles or backing out of a puzzle, however some of the adds are less than 10 seconds :) they range in difficulty, earning daily green coins/tokens to obtain new puzzles vs having to buy them (however I might pay for some because I really enjoy this game and don’t want to wait for daily rewards to get more tokens haha) Cons: it seems to drain my battery pretty good on my 1+ year old iPhones 6s lol Wishing The was a trade store or something because I’m sitting at 16+k in coins since I don’t need the hints very often but maybe later on I’ll meet more challenging puzzles where I do need them (I think I’ve used the hint for 250 coins on 3 puzzle about 1-2 times) Over all I really enjoy the this game and hope it continues to grow :) thanks!
Never Gonna Finish
by jnkgirl on 2020/01/14 05:41
I’ve been playing since October 2015. I love this app for Picross and they continue to update all the time which is wonderful. There has always been this sort of last level called the Picture Cross Arcade and you can only access it once you finish all the levels before it. I would always be a few puzzles away before they added a new picture and 100 more puzzles would stand in my way before I could reach the Arcade. Then I’d near the end and then Color pictures got introduced! A constant cat and mouse chase. Having played for 4 years, the gap has since widened and I don’t think I’ll ever make it to the Arcade. They should have allowed access to the Arcade after completing a certain picture and created something else to look forward to at the end of the road. I’ve almost completed 10 puzzles, well over 1000 squares and find it disheartening to know I will never learn what is at the “end.”
Enjoy the game
by Not impressed today on 2020/02/29 15:04
I have been playing the game for a long time now and I am happy to see the developers staying ahead of me so lots more play available for the future. Like many others have mentioned, coins are really just a distraction and I will hit the million mark soon because I work the challenge rather than buying a hint. In all the time I have been playing, I think I may have bought tokens twice. Wait until they are nearly gone and you get a discount offered with 1500 tokens for $9.99. Check in every day to get those freebies! One thing I am really disappointed with is no acknowledgment when you finish a pack. It would be great if you got a message like “congratulations on completing the xxx pack- here is your 500 token reward!” Even if you remain too cheap to offer a reward, you could at least have something that says job well done.
Love! Love! Love!

I find myself playing this game every chance I get! The different level puzzles really make you think and use your head! I’ve completed so many puzzles, my coinage is way up there. With that being said, I’ve found the rewards for the puzzles are mostly coins rather than tokens. The max amount of tokens is 10. Most of the puzzles cost more than 10 tokens. The daily reward does consist of tokens but it’s 15 max and that’s after day 4. I have so many coins i don’t know what to do with them, because I like to try not to use a hint unless necessary. Personally being able to buy more tokens with the coins I have collected in the game would be a major bonus. The +1 free token with the view of an advert only gets you so far because there’s 2 videos max most times. The tokens is the only issue I have with this game other than the lack of tokens I receive within a day, I absolutely love this game!
Good game, I would definitely recommend

Let’s begin with the two things I don’t like. 1. The fact that tokens are very uncommon when solving puzzles so it does take a while to complete a board. You’d have to either buy some, hope the 8 videos is enough to get you to the amount, or wait till the next day to get the daily bonus 2. A lot of puzzles are just out of reach. The fact that a majority of them are between 18-27 tokens to play is annoying that you, again, have to hope you pick the right puzzle and win them, or wait. But other than that, it is super super fun. This is why I give 5/5 instead of 4/5, because it’s so addictive. Even if I just go on to get my daily log in bonus, I’m just waiting to do the expensive puzzle, because those are probably the most fun. It’s very good if you’re bored, if you want to challenge your brain, or if you just like making pictures. The pixel art in this game (mainly the puzzle board itself, but some of the puzzles themselves are cute) is amazing. I do recommend you download this game, even if only to give it a try, now if you’ll excuse me, I gotta go solve like 10 of the puzzles, cause that’s what my life has become (NOT A PAID PROMOTION!) (I promise, would I ever lie to you?) (Ok, you’re right, maybe you, but not the other guy/girl over there, I wouldn’t lie to them)
So close.

Let me start by saying I have no issues with the game. It never crashed on me and the core mechanics are fun. The balance is good, the difficulty is accurate. The problem with this game is it turns into a scam. There is an add after just about every level. That isn’t bad by itself. Most of the normal and hard levels take several minutes to finish and the ratio of ads to playtime is a little high but only while transitioning to the next map so it’s acceptable. The problem comes after you have played for a while. You use tokens to buy every level. You win tokens for completing levels and they generate over time, but the problem is the cost per level goes up the farther in the game you are. Starts at five or six but by the end it’s 50 to play some levels. When you only have a small chance to win tokens and generate one an hour it starts to take days of downtime before you can play. But don’t worry you can buy tokens off the market. If you want to require money to play just make the game cost money. Don’t fill it to the brim with ads then ask for continuous payment.
Fun, but needs improvements

I love the idea of this game, but it's not the best in this category. The first problem is tokens. Each puzzle requires a random number of tokens in order to play, so you have to click all over just to find one you have enough tokens for. They should set token amounts based in the colored levels with more tokens required to play easy and fewer tokens needed to play hard. The other complaint is that you earn coins rather than tokens for completed puzzles and the only use for the coins is in replaying a puzzle you've already completed. Dumb. Finally, I'm always being prompted to buy tokens for a special sale, but it's always the same ridiculous prices. I would be happy to buy 5000 tokens for 99 cents once a week to support the game but their prices are high since it costs so many tokens to play a single puzzle. Other than that the idea of the giant puzzle is clever and fun. Just takes too long to earn enough tokens to play.
Maybe improved?

Edit to my last post below: they seem to be forking over coins in much greater quantities now, and you can watch ads to get more, post, rate, invite friends, etc for credits. So maybe they got the hint. I'll raise my score to a 3 for now, and if it keeps going well, erase my bad score entirely. I really WANT to like this game. OLD REVIEW: Started out okay, love game play in general. But you quickly find that if you buy coins, you quit getting extras every X/minute. Also as soon as I bought another packet, the app froze and would not reload... Since it was not not linked to my email I lost my entire game, including the cash I had forked over in the past. They were only able to return the most current use. Also rest assured, there is no way to actually win without paying - it tops out at a lower number of freebies than is needed to play the higher games
Love these games!

I started playing this style of game on Peak but played it so much that I soon had them memorized, making it hard to actually enjoy solving them. Saw an ad for Picture Cross and immediately downloaded it. I was thrilled with the wide variety of puzzles on here, as well as the fact that so many are 15x15 instead of just 10x10. I played through all the levels and then spent quite a bit of time on the arcade level. Then new boards were released, then arcade again. I now am starting to have a lot of arcade ones memorized so have started going back to earlier boards and just playing whatever hard and super-hard ones I come across. I am hoping for some new boards again soon! I would also love a new arcade selection... maybe just hard and super hard in it since anyone who gets that far is clearly experienced. ;)
I love this game but there’s a HUGE problem.

I love this game and have been playing it for a long time, but there’s a huge problem with the token system. I play the puzzles with the flashing question marks, as they are less tokens, and they used to always be 10 tokens or less. Well now they are 11 tokens or more, and so I can’t play any level because I can’t get more than 10 tokens without buying them. I know it says to complete quests to get more tokens, but to complete quests I need tokens to play levels. I know you can replay levels for tokens, but then I run out of coins. It’s really frustrating because I’m halfway done with the first three level packs and I can’t beat any more levels because of the token issue. The only way I can play any levels is to wait for the daily reward or watch videos to get one token, but you can only watch 5 videos a day which doesn’t help much. I love this game, but you need to fix that. Maybe have it where after you get 10 tokens, you can get another token every ten minutes or so. If you fix this I will change my review. Thanks.
