If you’re like me and have struggled at times to get into a Picross-style game, then “Picbox” may be for you. It has the puzzling gameplay you’re looking for, but with a solid tutorial that makes it easy to get into. If you’re into this style of game (or thought you might want to be, if you could ever figure it out), then “Picbox” and its 100 levels are a perfect entry point to the genre. There are even leaderboards, which is a neat addition for a puzzle game. Lots of value here for 80 Microsoft Points.
Here’s what the developer (Stinky Badger Games) has to say about the game:
“Create pixelated pictures from the number clues in this addictive puzzle game! Featuring 100 puzzles, 28 awardments, a tutorial video to get you started, and many hours of puzzling fun!”
