Capsule Review: Hexcells Infinite

The third of three games using a puzzle system somewhere between Minesweeper and Picross. Puzzles are presented on a hex grid with numeric clues that allow the player to deduce which cells must be colored in and which must be blanked out. The clues are a mix of Picross-like ones giving information about the cells in a row or column and Minesweeper-like ones giving information about the cells near another cell, but in both cases there’s some extra variation and complexity mixed in.

Capsule Review: Picross 3D

A game featuring a modified three-dimensional variant of Picross. Instead of a grid made of squares to selectively fill in to reveal an image, the player is presented with a rectangular prism made of cubes to selectively chip away to reveal an object. The clues work differently as well - not every row or column has clues, and the ones that do have a single number indicating how many cubes should be left in that row or column.

Capsule Review: Hungry Cat Picross

A Color Picross game. The pictures are more interesting than in standard Picross, but at least in this case some puzzles feature colors that are very similar and difficult to tell apart, which is needlessly frustrating. It’s also not always easy to paint the right blocks with your finger on a phone’s touchscreen, which is probably why the puzzles are kept so small.
