I was tired of playing bad picross games. So I've made my version!


  • Randomly generated pictures with endless content
  • Juicy and comfortable controls
  • Dark themed so you don't hurt your eyes
  • Mistake mode: offers a more challenging mode where you can't make more mistake
  • Local high score system (Time based)
  • Very satisfying animation when you finish the pictogram (similar google's minesweeper)
  • Really nice clicky audio feedback with an option to mute
  • Auto-cross mode
  • Customizable grid width and height
