Have any of you bought iPicross?

I was wondering,

i need a good picross game that updates regularly

and i think iPicross could do the trick, but before i buy it, i was wondering if any of you guys have got it.

I would be surprised if GatorDeb did not

But what is it like?
Are the puzzle varied in difficulty?
Is the menu clear and the music?

thanks guys,
Lukearcade22

*i would insert a link, but not sure how to*

I think GatorDeb will take this, she claimed that she owns every picross app.
Wait for her review!

edit: oops, already mentioned...

I might give this ago, but I'm a bit dubious about puzzle size and difficulty.

Pixelcross was tauted as being of a decent difficulty level, but I found it to be far too easy. By far the most difficult part was navigating around. I didn't use the x button once, and pretty comfortably broke most of the staff records. BTW I wouldn't consider myself a picross expert, as most of the people I see doing real picross puzzles here in japan seem to be at the same level/speed as me.

I did buy it yesterday night

But when I search for it on the Touch, the name comes up but when I click it says no apps found. So I wasn't able to play it. Going to try again in a few minutes. I can't use the PC because it's too much hassle to organize all those apps for sync, easier to organize on the Touch.


Well I was able to download it and like it so far. The controls are great - swipe to mark, and if you are swiping over a spot that is already marked it doesn't unswipe (some Picross games have this problems and it annoys the hell out of me).

To the dev if he's here - do you plan to make future levels downloadable? PixelCross has online levels but I really want to be able to download packs you make and packs other people make.

I'd say go for it! And it's only a buck!
