Picross, nonograms, griddlers(apparantly) etc.
Nonogames are videogames based on Nonograms: logic based puzzles where the goal is to reveal an image. Each row and column is marked with numbers indicating how many boxes are to be filled, but the location of these boxes within the row or column is up to the player to figure out.
|My Nintendo Picross: The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess|
|Also free!, but not structured like a free-to-play game. Solid nonogame, the other thing that feels a little weird to me is that you toggle between the different mark types (included none), where I'm used to holding a button to enable.|
|Picross 3D: Round 2|
|It's free! But as you get further into the game it takes a long time to make progress.|
So far I only have a few recommendations, others I've tried include: Hungry Cat Picross (hints work weird), CrossMe Color Nonograms (required guessing), Picross Survival (wants me to install some bullshit),
|Cribs a bit from the DS Picross and seems to work just as smoothly. Has ads. though. The largest puzzles don't quite fit on the screen, which is a bit fiddley.|
|Decent rip-off of Hal's Picross 3D, with some thoughtful control additions to make up for no stylus. There are still a few more Picross 3D-like games I have to try.|
|Pretty standard. Has some obnoxious ad. pop-ups post-puzzle every now and then.|
