Awwww... looks nice, I'll give it a spin!

Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.

There's really nothing special about the puzzles. Mostly 5x5 grids and I saw a few larger 6x6 grids. The pirate theme is cool.

Free does come with a catch and that's with limited cannonballs to fire at the puzzle board. They do offer more shots every day, though I wouldn't expect very many awarded.

IAP is consumable. There's a massive difference between the 100 shot 99c pack and the most expensive $4.99 pack of 5000.

It really surprises me how expensive consumable IAP is these days. $20 for a pile of coins/gems/etc.?

Mr. Developer, sir - if I might suggest a $1.99 IAP (or maybe $2.99) that increases (doubles) the number of shots you get each day, that might be a much better deal for consumers (and get you more purchases.) If you look at many freemium titles, many have a "coin doubler" which is very popular.

Game is polished but it you can only play for 5 minutes.

And the description makes it sound like it's the only free to play picross.

Not a bad piccross game. I played it until I ran out of bombs. I don't fully understand why boxes around the chests open up. Most piccross games just allow you to mark off areas that you know don't contain the "chest".

Nice design, more suited I guess for the younger set. Still, it's enjoyable. It might be nice to have an unlocked IAP, maybe still limiting advancement to new levels based on completing previous levels. Just a thought.

Doesn't even load for me. Briely displays the splash screen and then closes.

Looks like fun. Love the Windwaker-ish feel I get from the screenshots. Kudos to the Dev.
