I am so excited for Picross 3D coming out tomorrow (though technically tuesday). Who else is excited for this?
I don't know the likelihood of this thread sticking around but I figure people can share their opinions and tips and such if any here in a few days. I don't know how the "create a puzzle" thing works but maybe we'll be able to aid in sharing puzzles with each other via this too.
I have a feeling I know which piece you're referring to, and I cannot stand it. I'm actually almost to the point where I'm going to change the music to an ambient noise, but the Challenge music is decent. The rest of it isn't so pleasant on my ears.
I'm okay with the music but preference-wise I feel it is a step down from Picross DS.
I haven't come across Nintendo-themed puzzles yet but I will be pissed if they aren't in the game. I love the little Nintendo touches they put in some games and having a whole level of Nintendo-themed stuff in Picross DS was a great bonus near the end.
I picked this up yesterday for a long car ride and it did the job just fine. So far I'm finding it a bit tougher than Picross DS, and I'm only 20 or so puzzles in. I'll be sure to check out the downloadable puzzles.
I feel it's harder than the original also. I think it's because not every side is labelled. I'm finding that I have to guess by the end (since I'm terrible at storing moves in my head). Or I'm overlooking something, which is totally possible.
The number next to my name says "84" Is that the number of puzzles I did or the number of stars I have? (I'm still in Easy mode)
I haven't even tried to make a puzzle yet. At this rate, I may never need to.
Well now that I finally have it, it's pretty good, but in my opinion not as great as Picross DS. The original game I restarted four times after completing all the puzzles. I don't think I'll restart Picross 3D after I beat it. It's just not as much fun. Still good, just not mind-blowing like the first.
Does anyone else enjoy guessing what you've Picross'd in that little 5-second window just after you complete the puzzle (as the structure rotates)? I get a lot more enjoyment than I should when I get it right
I just discovered a cool trick. When you're using the arrow to delve inside the structure, you can double-tap the arrow to go directly back to the original viewpoint. Saves a few seconds here and there, and pretty useful for larger puzzles.
