  • Please add this button Dec 12, 2018

    By Jk04793156
    I'm a big fan of cross number games and I enjoy passing the time with this one as well. One thing I would like that I personally think would improve the game is the addition of an "x" button so you can mark the squares that you know to have nothing in them with an x. It helps to deduce where the actual squares go. Just my two cents, but I don't think I would be the only one to appreciate this addition.

  • It’s a good game, but... Apr 13, 2018

    By Godzirra7377
    Don’t get me wrong, I still play this game everyday to pass the time or do something fun, as it is one of the one games I haven’t played for a few days and then dropped, but there is something you must know. I’ve played almost 400 levels in this game and when I downloaded it I played and played for hours. The game has 12 different maps and each map contains 16 levels that you click into and then from there each level you click into has anywhere from 2-5 challenges. This makes completing each level a little challenging and keeps you entertained as you’re not grinding through small challenges. After you complete the 12 maps, the game resets back to the first map, but you’re just on a different level number and tier it seems like. The levels get slightly harder on the second tier through, but eventually you start noticing that some of the levels look the same or are the same as one you played previously. Then once you complete the second tier and start back on the third tier it’s the same levels over and over. So it’s a great time passer and is a fun game. One of the best puzzle games I’ve played in awhile in the App Store, but eventually the levels start to repeat and it makes it dull.

  • Constant error screen on iPad version Feb 17, 2019

    By CarDark
    This is a great game! The reason for not giving 5 stars is a constant error box that pops up constantly, during levels and between, that causes lost levels and time, and is extremely frustrating. It is a gray box that covers the entire screen and to close it, you have to tap a square that is on top of the game screen and it will also tap a box in the current level at the same time, often causing the loss of the level. The error message is a paragraph of errors, all involving Facebook and “request stack too big”, then a list of various Facebook and mobile errors. I play on my iPad so that I can use Apple Pencil for the larger grids that have tiny boxes, as it is difficult to tap them accurately with my finger. I have not noticed on the mobile version because I switched to iPad quickly and I have not connected my iPhone version to Facebook. If you will give me a support email address, I can send a screenshot. Please fix this and I will happily change to a 5 star review. Thank you!

    Love the game but there's a couple of glitches for me. Just got a new phone and had to restart from level 1. Then I get to level 7 the screen doesn't stretch down far enough for me to get to the health button to move along. Editing - anything done to fix the issue on Android phones? I'll go 5 stars if I could play it again. Still waiting for an update Update on 7-30. 11-13 and I'm still waiting for anything.......

  • Used to be good but unplayable now Jul 25, 2018

    By Toomanynamestaken
    I’ve been playing this game on and off for sometime now. This isn’t a logic game that in the end you deduct an answer. The clues given don’t provide enough information, so you end up guessing and it becomes difficult to pass a level without having to purchase additional clues with real money. There is no way to earn credits in game, so you get stuck at levels. The game is so choppy now where it will freeze for one second, then skip two seconds that it makes timed gameplay impossible. This happens on both my and my husband’s devices. While the controls are great, it’s just unplayable and and repeated grids are dull. I’ve since installed 3 other griddler puzzle games that are more enjoyable because they aren’t glitching out. Please fix your app, the unresponsiveness to screen tap makes it unbearable to play. Let me know when it’s fixed and I’ll come back if I’m not already hooked on another picross style game.

  • Good Game BUT.... Oct 18, 2018

    By Massuse55
    This is a very fun game. Gets you thinking. Which I like. However. I’m now very very upset with it. I was in the like 3 or 4th section and almost done with it. I had paid Actual Money for some of the boosters and such. Cause if I like a game I am willing to spend some money on it. What pisses me off. I had an issue with my phone so had to get a replacement. I finally went back into the game and I’m starting fresh on level one again. THATS F*D UP IN MY EYES!!! I spent actual money and now I’m back at square one!! F that. Find a way to fix that. Cause I won’t spend money on you now. Not even sure I’m willing to play as much. I was willing to give at least 2 stars cause you are worth the 5(at least somewhat) but the stealing my money type thing. Nope! Makes you lucky to get 2

    I enjoy the desktop version of the game but the app version is TERRIBLE. There's no option to switch to Xs to eliminate potential squares. Also, the grayed out/blocked squares are too similar of a shade to the open squares. As a result, you end up make more accidental errors and you run out of lives even faster than you do with the desktop version.

  • Great deductive reasoning game Feb 19, 2019

    By medicare coach tracy
    This is my morning brain wake up game to play as I drink my coffee. The silly child-like cartoons disguises the complex use of deduction skills which vitalize your capacity for reasoning and wake up your brain. The music is not worth turning on and It’s a huge waste of time if played as a replacement for productive daily work. Never play this to avoid relationships or reality. There is zero social interaction in it. Suggest for use on airplanes, while commuting to work or as a morning brain energizer as I do. Nothing more than a game that allows your gray matter to engage. Enjoy!

  • Fun Spin on Nonograms Jul 13, 2020

    By _Harlowe_
    This game is like Sudoku meets Candy Crush. It’s a fun spin on Nonograms. What I don’t like, though, is there is only supposed to be one way to solve a Nonogram, just like Sudoku, but I have played several levels where I was certain there were two solutions. It would be nice if you could place boulders or something in the squares that you deduce are not a possibility. Overall, cute and puzzling, which is what I was looking for.

  • Interesting + Fun!! Apr 7, 2019

    By klyle5
    I’ve been playing for months and love it! Yes, you do hit some puzzles you’ve had before, but it doesn’t really make a difference. I’ve never bought anything and on occasion have had to wait for lives ... but all the puzzles ARE doable without guessing. You’ve just got to take your time and figure out the necessary moves. Makes you think! Really enjoy this game!

  • Fun, but too many ads Feb 21, 2019

    By cqux66$
    Most of the screens can be solved with logic, but not a few, you just have to guess. Just as well, or I’d probably play it for hours every day. The long ads every few screens, though, is what will make me quit playing. Five seconds is one thing, but half a minute or more out of every five, is getting old.

  • Good but needs improvements Jul 3, 2020

    By Randomguy454
    As others have said, why is it one mistake can sometimes end the whole game and eating the fruit barely replenishes your health at all? I swear when I first started this game, the fruit gave you way more energy. Also, why does it take an hour to earn one new life? Maybe add a way to EARN new lives or occasionally offer 30 minutes (1 hour, 12 hours, etc.) of unlimited lives the way games like Cookie Jam do. Others have mentioned ads .. I don’t notice them on mine. I would watch a brief ad for an extra life! And also, those timed games...really?? I have 40 SECONDS to solve the darn thing and I have to pass all THREE timed ones or I have to start over?? Please change that!! Easy way to blow through your 5 lives! Ridiculous. If these things were changed, I would give 5 stars...I really like it but these things really bug me and push me back to playing Cookie Jam and other games with less hassle.

  • Lots of fun but... Aug 16, 2018

    By BrokeCollegePeep
    I really enjoy playing this game each day, it’s a nice brain teaser and keeps you on your feet. However, it’s really annoying that one you get passed a certain level, there is an ad after every single level you pass. And I don’t mean a short little pop up ad that you exit out of or a short 10 second ad. I mean a 30 to 60 second ad that you’ve already seen ten times over. The time adds up waiting for it to be over every single time. I’m also confused about the health system. What is the point of having health if for some levels, after one mistake it’s game over. You could have full health, but make one wrong move and you have to retry the level. I’m not upset that it’s game over, the puzzle is actually more exciting knowing I have to be perfect to pass, but I just don’t get the point of the health then.

    Good game, way too many adverts! If you win or loose there's an ad! And it's the same 1 every time. can understand having to watch an ad if you loose, but not if you win! And the whole "watch an ad to continue" to give you another chance at beating the level... Decline and they show you the same bloody ad anyway! Not cool guys! Getting close to deleting the game. Might go crazy if I need to sit through it again. I get it, youve gotta make your money, but at least get some variety in there.

  • Concept is awesome, but... Jul 19, 2018

    By S0URP@TCH
    Love the concept of the game, but once you get past a certain point, it’s almost all guessing and one mistake can end the entire turn. They give you food to help boost life back up, but they take 65 from health, and food will only restore like 5-10. They have hint systems you can use, but you’ll need gems to buy them, and there’s no option to earn free ones, nor do you get any for passing a level. Think of it like playing sudoku with no numbers sometimes. So I think this is where I’ll stop. I don’t want to be forced to buy just to move on, funny, because I probably would’ve spent a buck or two if they also gave chances to get free gems.

  • Overall a good game Oct 26, 2019

    By Burnt Kloverfield
    I just can’t stand that there’s no way to mark what squares aren’t correct. The levels are challenging enough and it’s got a good art style. It’s annoying that there are ads after every level but so goes free games. It just is an absolute deal breaker that I can’t mark not squares. Like I know there is nothing there, please let me mark it with an x or something to show that nothing goes there. It’s not like these make pictures or anything. I’ve tried coming back again and again because I do like this game. Not having this one feature that occurs in every other nonogram is absolutely frustrating and I can’t do this.

  • Riddle stones Nov 5, 2017

    By Little Charleigh
    I don’t think there is a rhyme or reason to the amount of points lost when making mistakes in the game. I understand losing lives or having to refuel life’s but I don’t understand why sometimes you lose 2 points and sometimes you lose 60 points. It makes no sense and is very frustrating. Especially when my big fingers miss a box on accident and suddenly I’m waiting two hours for lives. But the game is so fun and runs well. I just wish it was more consistent in the points area or did like “three miss taps and you have to wait for lives” something consistent. Even if it’s a small amount.

    Bought a new phone and installed the game. My progress wasn't saved so I had to restart. More importantly, bottom of the page is cut off so no access to jewels, health, etc. There's more than a few identical complaints with no fix as yet. Used to be my favorite game; no longer and ready to uninstall.
