PicoCross by Joseph is a relaxing puzzle game made for PICO-8.
This game describes a nonogram, which is a cell-based picture puzzle, where you must find all of the shaded cells. If you find all of the shaded cells, then you will reveal the hidden picture. Once you understand the rules, they are quite simple. They are:
- The numbers above and to the left of the grid describe the number of consecutive shaded cells in the row or column.
- If we imagine a 10×10 grid and we have a ( 10 ) above the first column, then we know that all ten cells are shaded for that column.
- If in the first row we have the clue ( 5, 4 ), this tells us that there are five shaded cells, a gap of at least one non-shaded cell, and then four shaded cells.
- Once you match all of them, you will reveal a smiley face.
