  • Ads tokens and repeats

    By MikeDuzzit250
    Games fun as any other picross, although some of the puzzles are a bit ridiculous, jumbled mass of pixels that somehow form an intricate painting or something of the like. Obviously, being a free app, they rely heavily on ads, both to help you a small amount to advance, but also so you can receive tokens (never mind the constant 5 second ads in between games and menus). Tokens that you will rely heavily on to advance. It gets a bit ridiculous. The biggest reason this goes down the drain for me though is that the 2nd 400 puzzle “night theme” pack is the same as the first one only flipped around...both the layout of the puzzle map and the puzzles themselves...Like if I’ve played this game this far to try and see user-made puzzles in the arcade, then don’t force me to basically just watch more ads to play games I’ve already played, only flipped around...
  • Good game, but..

    By Morganwtf
    I LOVE this game, I’m actually quite addicted to it. However, when I need more tokens and I do a survey or download another app in order to get more tokens, 9 times out of 10 my tokens DONT go through. So I’ve wasted a lot of time (and money) when in need of tokens... very disappointing
  • I’m done with this ridiculous token system.

    By Greg-_
    I didn’t finish the puzzles, but I’m done playing this game. I’ve been doing the puzzles in this game for I don’t even know how long and I still feel like I’m not even close to finishing it because progress has slowed down to a halt. I’m at the point where I can’t even play a single level for days because the game never decides to “randomly” give me tokens for finishing a level. I think I’ve finished maybe 8 or 9 levels and haven’t gotten a single token reward aside from the levels you buy and replay with coins. A few updates ago, I had found a bug that let me replay the same level over and over again for free, letting me gain infinite tokens (only one at a time mind you), and I have to say that was the most fun I ever had in this game, being able to play whatever level I wanted whenever I wanted was seriously the bomb. But I was a fool who looked at the patch notes and saw “token rewards are much more generous”. Yeah now that was a lie, wasn’t it? Now the bug is patched, and I’m limited to the same old boring game as before. So finally, thanks a lot to the dev who thought it was a great idea to implement this god awful token system. I can now safely say that I regret ever spending money on this game because I’m not going to spend days collecting tokens just to finish a single level. Maybe if the token system is revamped (a guaranteed reward of tokens instead of relying on RNG would be a great start!) I’ll start playing again, but not until then.
  • Really like this one

    By marmoo
    This is a really great version of this type of puzzle. Not too challenging overall, most are solved fairly quickly. My biggest gripe with the game is that it doesn’t sync across multiple devices. I first played on my phone, but discovered it’s a lot easier on my tablet because of the size difference. But when I downloaded onto my tablet, it’s starting over from the beginning because there is no recognition that I already started the game on my phone. I don’t have a problem paying for no ads or for tokens, but I wish it would transfer between devices.
  • My New Addiction

    By ChrisOak3
    I love this app. All previous apps in this genre are just not as challenging to me anymore. I love the achievements and quests, too. It’s fun to try for goals in order to gain tokens. Great game!
  • Addictive!

    By Alex Reese
    Great game...super addictive. I wish it wasn’t so expensive though...I found myself having to spend cash to buy tokens to unlock games. Major suggestion...add an undo button!
  • Love 👌🏽

    By SarcasticSarah7
    Game is one of my favorites, it’s entertaining but also makes you think!
  • Tokens

    By D'niel
    Tokens make the game impossible to enjoy. The game itself is great but you can only play 1 or 2 puzzles a day because that’s all the tokens will afford you.
  • Running out of tokens

    By Lotsofnope
    I hate that I’m constantly running out of tokens. I will watch advertisements but I will not spend money on the game. This is a great way to send me somewhere else!
  • Fun Puzzles!

    By Lisa Bateman
    This is the most fun. Some are very hard. I'm a sore loser, but it really works the brain and is relaxing at same time. This is my favorite puzzle. Update: I had finished all of one puzzle and had all kinds of tokens. After last update, the stupid thing would keep saying it was trying to load on phone but wouldn’t. I finally had to delete it and reinstall but lost all my progress but had to start over. Wish there was a way to reset it back to where it was.
