Product Description

Color Cross is a challenging casual game, which engages your cognitive skills in a unique visual manner. Testing your problem-solving and coordination abilities, Color Cross requires a literal eye for color and numbers simultaneously.

Color Cross is a challenging puzzle game where the goal is to uncover the hidden picture by applying the right color to the appropriate square. Utilizing the familiar 'paint by numbers' picture logic puzzle mechanic, completing a grid will reveal a portion of a larger hidden image as well as unlocking increasingly difficult challenges. With over 150 individual grids to unlock, Color Cross provides hours of brain-teasing game play that is colorful in more ways than one.

4.0 out of 5 stars Paint-By-Number puzzles - in color. June 4, 2010
Verified Purchase
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
Coming on the heels of Picross 3D, Color Cross provides 2D puzzles in the manner the cover of Picross 3D leads you to believe it is played. Here, you get the pictures developing in a variety of colors as you solve the puzzle.

Therein lies one of the problems, though. It is impossible to tell the difference in some of the colors. Some puzzles use multiple shades of the same color that blend together even when next to one another. This is very irritating.

Are there some good features? Yes - there is no speed requirement to play all the puzzles! The puzzles are fun and the color gives it a different take when compared with Picross DS. It will teach (Sssh! Don't tell anyone!) logical thinking. The way the puzzles are solved, though, you will find yourself making assumptions about the symmetry that is prevalent in way too many of the puzzles.

The puzzles are separated into ten themes, with fifteen puzzles in each. As you solve the puzzles you get to see a piece of a larger jigsaw (with squares) puzzle. The picture thus revealed is not the jigsaw piece, it's just the same theme.

When you complete each row or column of the puzzle, the game has a pop up graphic covering that row or column, thus stopping the play. There is absolutely no reason in the world for this feature. All it does is interrupt your thought process as you are working the puzzle. You should be able to turn this off - but you can't.

And, there are only one hundred and fifty puzzles. Way too few considering how very, very easy many of them are (less than 20 seconds for some). For players new to this type of puzzle, the tutorial and manual are sorely lacking.

2.0 out of 5 stars Disappointing after playing Picross DS July 6, 2010
Verified Purchase
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
The concept is great.. I couldn't wait to get, but when I received, I was most disappointed.
After playing Picross DS, I guess I was spoilt by the manner in which you can maneuver your way around the puzzle. Having to click so many times between the functionalities, and with there being so boxes/grid being so tiny, just makes the game frustrating, as you get penalized for hitting the wrong square. Color Cross should have taken a hint off of their functionality and improved or even kept it the same!
Colors are too close in hue, and make it hard to tell certain colors apart. Great idea, but geez is this frustrating!!

3.0 out of 5 stars Color Cross doesn't save until puzzle completed June 15, 2010
Verified Purchase
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
Color Cross - the puzzles are very repetitive. AND, as you progress through different levels, hard to see numbers on side to determine which boxes to color in. And, if you move the puzzle to the side, to see numbers, and you cover up the paint brush application and you are stuck on just the move button. You then have to turn off the unite and turn back on. Puzzle is now lost.
Also, it takes time to solve a puzzle. When you shut down, it won't save the puzzle. You have to start all over again.

4.0 out of 5 stars Color Cross WILL save your puzzle! November 20, 2010
By Puzzler
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I love picross-style puzzles, by whatever name (hanjie, nomograms, griddlers, etc). So I expected to love Color Cross, but I ran into the same problems others here have mentioned--small squares as the grids get larger and colors that are difficult to tell apart.

The "small squares" issue can be somewhat alleviated by using the R & L buttons as necessary to re-size the grid. Press repeatedly to change the grid size incrementally. Changing the grid size does make it tougher to see the number clues if you are working at the lower or right edge of the grid (although tapping in the grid pops up the clues for you), but making the squares larger does help with the inadvertent coloring in of adjacent squares that happens when the squares are too tiny.

The similar colors issue can sometimes (but not always--depends on the color) be helped by changing the background color. Press the A button to change from the yellow to blue background and back again. This helps if the colors you are working with blend into the background otherwise. It won't really help with distinguishing a dark brown from black, however.

The complaint I've seen here, and that I had myself, about Color Cross not saving the puzzle turns out to be wrong. And that was excellent news for me! I hated that I couldn't save the puzzle when they got to be more difficult and took longer to do. To "Save" simply choose to "Quit" rather than just shutting off your DS. Then the puzzle IS saved. Then when you restart, select your profile, in the next screen you are given the option to start a New puzzle or to Resume. "Resume" brings back the puzzle you were working on when you "Quit".

Get to "Quit" by pressing the "Start" button on your DS while working a puzzle.

2.0 out of 5 stars Very Frustrating To Play January 16, 2011
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
Unfortunately, I picked this up after I had been playing PicCross 3D. The problem with this one is that the boxes are so tiny, I keep hitting ones I don't want and getting penalized with time. I've used the zoom feature but then you don't get the whole picture of which rows/columns are still open for colors and unless you are at the top of the screen, you don't see the top number boxes.

I played for awhile, put it away and picked it up again today. I then realized again why I hadn't played it in awhile. It is very frustrating! I really don't care about the time element but I have to keep trying to get the right box, and inevitably, on the more complex puzzles, it thinks I've hit the box above, below or whatever.

I love PicCross 3D, I hate this version. I can see it working on a computer screen so that you can see everything all at once and have more control with your mouse but on the DS, it's horrible.

3.0 out of 5 stars Ok selection of puzzles, but
Screen seems a bit too small for this game. Zoom feature is nice but it makes the screen seem even smaller. Too much uncomfortable panning around.

4.0 out of 5 stars If you like puzzles...
After you solve the progressively harder color in puzzles you reveal the mystery picture. It is mildly challenging and good for older people.

I've never played PicCross, so can't compare it. I liked this game, and enjoyed playing with it. I agree with other that the similar colors & numbers are hard to see.
