Pixelogic - Picross Enhanced released!

I just recently released an iPhone Picross game called Pixelogic - Picross Enhanced. Pixelogic is a fun and challenging puzzle game where you use logic to reveal a hidden picture made of colored cells. Like a mixture between sudoku and minesweeper, numeric hints are used to uncover a pixelated surprise

I think what makes Pixelogic stand out from other iPhone picross games is its unique zoom functionality: a portion of the game board is enlarged, while the rest is "squished" around it. This allows the user to easily tap the boxes in the portion of the game board they're focused on, while still being able to view the rest. This is a great feature for playing large puzzle grids on the small iPhone screen.

Other features that make Pixelogic stand out:
+ 100+ puzzles (5x5, 10x10, and 15x15 sizes)
+ A new Daily puzzle challenges available for download everyday
+ Instant feedback on incorrectly chosen cells. If you get 5 wrong its gameover.
+ Create your own picross puzzles. Play them yourself or challenge your friend. You can also submit created picross puzzles to be featured as a daily challenge.
+ Records high score for each puzzle
+ Auto-save feature resumes your game if you have to quit or get a call mid-game

Here's a video demo of the unique zoom feature and gameplay:

As the developer of Pixelogic, I'd appreciate any helpful feedback. Thanks!

Looks pretty good. I've never played a Picross game before but I know ALOT of people here like them. Good luck with your sales!

I love these types of games. I hope to try it soon. What makes your game different from a game like picgrid?

Thanks! I just recently got into picross (just before deciding to create this game). It definitely gets addictive.

I believe the biggest feature that makes Pixelogic unique is the zoom functionality. For large grids (15x15 or 10x10), you can zoom into a single 5x5 section, while the rest of the board 'squishes' around it. This is a big difference from other implementations, where you zoom in and can't see the rest of the board (you have to scroll around) or you have to play with tiny cells, which are hard to press with your fingers.

The screenshots don't do it justice, so check out the video to see it in action:

I took PMTPAPJT7H79, thanks!

Would the 3 other people that took the 3 other codes post that you've done so? None of the others worked. So lazy...
