"If you are an expert at Sudoku growing tired of nailing every puzzle in less than 5 minutes and are looking for a challenge, Nonograms is for you."
- Jack Thorp

Not for the faint of heart
This isn't an easy game....at least not for me. () it's logic, with numbers and being an original puzzle designed by the Japanese, clearly challenging, which is a true compliment! Brilliant minds will find it simple, for those who like challenging puzzles, it's worth the money but again, not for everyone. For some, it might be over ones head. I love that very element and did an immediate download. I'm curious what others may think.
