I think some of the puzzles were specially unfair, such as Fancy Pants Man and Oney, who were inverted. But overall pretty enjoyable game.

Would be cool to see this happen again for PD'24!

Very unique

Well this was a very unique game here simple on the outside but really comes together as you start seeing it come alive nice designs too Not too much games and movies really dazzle me but thats because everything is always the same You have gone and made the effort to change this one and make it different from the others, this one dazzles and sparkles with design and interest, I was confuesd at first it what to do but it came together


A decent collection of picross puzzles.

POG the quality of the designs man good job MindChamber awesome designs :D
