Pokémon Picross is a solid take on Jupiter’s puzzle series if you can look past the free-to-start aspects. Those that like both Picross and Pokémon can definitely get a lot of enjoyment from the 600 puzzles that populate the game. Those that choose to pay will likely have more fun chiselling through due to the free-to-start mechanics essentially being removed, but those that don’t are in for a grind which isn’t what most will want in a game. Despite that, it’s still solid Picross, and while it’s worse value for money than the Picross e games, you’re bound to find enjoyment here.
I love the idea of Pokémon Picross, and it is executed well. The core game got its hooks into me quickly, but as a puzzle game with no random elements, it doesn’t translate well to the world of free-to-play. Even patient and skilled Picross players will find their entertainment held hostage behind paywalls. Overlapping these two disparate genres and franchises works, but your progression through them does not.
It’s a perfect gateway drug to nonogram puzzles if you’ve never tried them before. And if you’re a Picross vet hankering for more, this is well worth diving into as long as you’re okay with the fact that, if you want to play this free-to-start game without mindlessly repeating puzzles ad nauseum, you’re going to have to spend some money.
