You say everybody's favorite DS puzzle game... probably not what you meant but this isn't the same game with the same puzzles, right? Looking forward to it as having this as a digital download will be awesome.
Pretty much every Picross game from Nintendo, you can start the intermediate puzzles right away. Yet you need to complete the easy set of puzzles as well if you want to unlock the hard ones. That makes no sense. They should be unlocked when you finish the intermediate set. Hell, they shouldn't be locked at all.
These puzzles can't be compared to a platformer. You could buy a book full of them, and skip pages if you wanted. I don't think a crosswords afficionado would make sure to complete all of the early easy puzzles before moving on to the fun ones. I know I skip easy Sudoku puzzles when I buy a booklet of them. I should have the same option here.
Take special note of this moment because it is difficult to find someone who admits when they are wrong on the internet.
Hey, Gui, I was wrong. I've only played the Picross DS game but I did all the puzzles in order and didn't know you could skip to the intermediate ones like that. I'm just used to a world in which 99.99999% of games don't want players to have the option to skip anything for fear of biting off more than they can chew and then dropping the game entirely. So, when you said the lack of such a skip would be a deal-breaker for you, I was totally baffled.
I just didn't want to see another smart person avoid a (likely) good game for foolish reasons. I think it happens too often.
Most games do this though but you are right it does need to change. The worst offender was probably Wii Fit. Why the hell did they restrict the types and amount of exercise you were allowed to do. Baffling.
