What people say about PathPix
********************
"Best Numbers Game - PathPix. In PathPix, the goal is to create a picture using numbers that connect to one another by bright, bold lines of color. Ranging from very simple images to sprawling and complex masterpieces, Pathpix is a logic game that rewards your dedication with an interesting bit of math-made art. You'll also get a nice historical or literary quote as a reward as well ... this game is so addicting you might just feel the need to solve them all." - www.slidetoplay.com
"PathPix ... is a harmonious blend of drawing, connect the dots, and find the hidden picture. ... Touch controls are very intuitive and work well. PathPix offers a wonderfully addictive gaming experience." - by the AppSmileTeam
"PathPix ... is a superb implementation of the numbers-linking puzzle for iPhone and iPod Touch users." - by JohnB, JayIsGames

Simple rules - complex puzzles - hidden pictures!
********************
Draw bright, bold lines of color, connecting pairs of colored numbers. The length of each path must match the numbers on the two endpoints. Draw backwards or double tap to correct mistakes. There's only one way to do it, and all squares will contain a piece of a path when the puzzle is solved.

Two ways to navigate while solving:
---Tap the zoom button for an overview, then touch the screen where you want to play next.
---Pan to show another area of the board. Put your finger down any place WITHOUT A NUMBER and move it around. Simple, intuitive, fast.

PathPix Lite is based on the PC game "PathPix" by Kris Pixton.

SkyMuffin's comments:


Just came out two days ago. Early christmas present It has 99 levels ranging from beginner to advanced. Doesn't say if they will add more.

For anyone new to PathPix, it's basically a simple puzzle game where you connect lines of different lengths (as denoted by their numbers) to each other to form a picture. It sounds simple but it gets very complicated when you have larger pictures and longer lines. It's surprisingly fun.

You can try a lite of the first game here: http://itunes.apple.com/us/app/pathpix-lite/id321677308?mt=8

I'd love to grab this myself, but I think I'm kinda burnt out on it after 100%-ing the first game. I'm still only at #50 or so in PathPix Pro...

Yes, Activision has a maze game that you can upload pictures and it reverts them into a maze automatically. It might be kind of tedious to make puzzles completely from scratch on your own, but it could also be fun. Maybe the photo could provide the outline and colors, and the user could delineate the paths. Someone should go make that app now!
