Griddler Puzzle (Color and B&W Picross)

It is $1.99 and looks to have actual pictures instead of random patterns.
Also says it has a shop of some sort.

I am really tempted to get this as the other picross games have yet to catch my attention like this one has.

As soon as I buy it he's going to wait a week and then lower it to a buck (I'm looking at your PicGrid ).

I'm waiting for a price drop. I have enough games to tie me over

The dev's contact info on iTunes is missing.

I'm weak

You all better thank me when within the week it drops to a buck and the dev comes in here giving promo codes left and right.

Did you resist for just a few hours?

OK! Sometimes I can't help myself not even for a minute.

Now please give us your impressions about this game. I'm curious.

It's awesome and hard Of all the ones I've played, this is the hardest (not the easy levels, but the later levels).

It is not touch-based, it is button based, but it works amazingly well. Amazingly well. I'm a touch freak and even I don't mind button controls with this game. There's tons of puzzles. And there's a "shop" where you can get items that help you out. As you do puzzles you earn coins (the faster you finish it the more coins). The coins reset after each level, so you can get as many items as the # of coins you have per level.

I really like it and it's well worth $2. But I reserve the right to be pissed when the dev finds this thread and gives out promo codes

Over 200 levels = 202 lol And 13 throwaway easy ones.

There's no contact info so maybe the dev will wander in here and we can suggest touch controls.

The last of the B&W and color levels:

I got it too!

It is really good, probably the best of the picross games on the iPhone. Reminds me of Mario's Picross on Game Boy. Well worth the $2.

OK! Based on your good feedback about this game I've decided to buy it.

However there is a HUGE annoyance that would stop me from buying it if I knew it before: EVERY MOVE CAUSES A VIBRATION IF SOUND IS ON.

I could not find any option to disable this hateful and battery waster kind of suicide feature.

I'll have to play the game without sound so I can test the gameplay itself.

For now it is a 1/5 star.

Whenever I start the app I have an option to have sounds enabled or not....
