What people say about PathPix
"Best Numbers Game - PathPix. In PathPix, the goal is to create a picture using numbers that connect to one another by bright, bold lines of color. Ranging from very simple images to sprawling and complex masterpieces, Pathpix is a logic game that rewards your dedication with an interesting bit of math-made art. You'll also get a nice historical or literary quote as a reward as well ... this game is so addicting you might just feel the need to solve them all." - www.slidetoplay.com
"PathPix ... is a harmonious blend of drawing, connect the dots, and find the hidden picture. ... Touch controls are very intuitive and work well. PathPix offers a wonderfully addictive gaming experience." - by the AppSmileTeam
"PathPix ... is a superb implementation of the numbers-linking puzzle for iPhone and iPod Touch users." - by JohnB, JayIsGames

Simple rules - complex puzzles - hidden pictures!
Draw bright, bold lines of color, connecting pairs of colored numbers. The length of each path must match the numbers on the two endpoints. Draw backwards or double tap to correct mistakes. There's only one way to do it, and all squares will contain a piece of a path when the puzzle is solved.

Two ways to navigate while solving:
---Tap the zoom button for an overview, then touch the screen where you want to play next.
---Pan to show another area of the board. Put your finger down any place WITHOUT A NUMBER and move it around. Simple, intuitive, fast.

PathPix Joy is based on the PC game "PathPix" by KpixGames.

To those that know and love this author's series of puzzle games, this is the latest offering, and it is another winner to me. Sadly, many people have never experienced the joyful, zenlike, but addicting quality of the puzzles. If you have not experienced them, there are lite versions, or here is a new one at only a dollar. The apps are not universal, although pixel double pretty well. I have all of them, and have never for a minute regretted the purchase. They stay on my iPad, and my iPhone, and I periodically delete everything, just to play them again. One of the apps in my book with superior longevity.

What a nice surprise!

Absolute must-have for puzzle fans. The dev is always so quiet when she releases the game.

To those that love this series also check out the PrismaPix which is similarly outstanding, and a slightly different puzzle mechanic. I posted it with its own thread, but it doesn't look to be garnering much interest. It would be too bad to miss it.

I just bought this minutes ago. I had thought the dev had disappeared. Was anxiously waiting for more puzzles... I've solved all of the other pathpix. I can't get enough!
