"The rain is coming!"

Dr. Dog and Dr. Viled are back for a brand new episode in the NoNoSparks universe! This time the goal of the game is to create and board NoNoah's Ark before the Flood is coming by solving logical puzzles.

The world of NoNoSparks is an innovative crossover of a tried-and-tested, addictive puzzle mechanic and a "god-like" gameplay experience.
The beautiful and humorous graphics and characters offer a charming appeal and create a flow that invites you back to yet another and another playing session.

There seems to be a glitch that prevents the last puzzle from completing even when all pieces are in proper position.

So, this was excellent. Not only did it provide a reasonable Picross challenge, but it also had all the eye candy and excellent music and sound effects to make it even more satisfying.

The graphics are very well made, definitely drawn by a professional artist or something, and I love how they animate while we solve the puzzles. The music and the sound effects are also awesome, releaxing lounge music, angel/demon laughs, satisfying pen clicking sound when we get something done on the board, and all that good stuff, working to give our brains feedback as we solve a puzzle.

The gameplay is Picross, with a few pretty interesting and fairly challenging levels, laid out in a way that each newly solved puzzle completes something in the grand scheme of the Ark of Noah (or NoNoah, right), and as we progress, the more complete the drawing of the Ark becomes, with more and more animals, and even an engineer girlfriend for Noah. The reward of getting things built, combined with the interesting challenge of the Nonogram puzzles, was more than enough to keep me going all the way, and I enjoyed this a lot.

I also find it interesting that this is the only Picross game I found so far that contains rectangular puzzles. That's not exactly game-changing, but it's interesting.

The puzzles get harder and harder as the game progresses, but they are always appropriately awesome when you finally get them right. The final ones are horrendously difficult, and they gave me a pretty hard time. But still, it felt like the difficulty curve was perfectly smooth, save for a few easier stages thrown in here and there, and all in all, it felt like the game got harder the more I progressed.

Only real complaint I have is that you can't save one's in progress, so you have to get each done all in one go. Other than that they're great.

I'd love to see a continuation of this series. It's funny and witty and the right kind of challenging.
Keep up the good work!
