Solve every level and discover the hidden image
Colors and numbers puzzles had quickly become my favorite kind of puzzles... but I'm discovering too many too fast.
CrossMe Color presents another one of those fascinating puzzles where your goal is to unveil a hidden image by filling the appropriate cells following the numbers located at the grids' sides.
As you may know, each number represents the number of cells that must be filled in a column or row. Slide your finger over a line or column to fill it completely, tap to fill an only cell and press twice to mark it as blank. Remember that various numbers means that there must at least be an empty cell between the series.
The controls are incredibly responsive and design is minimalist and beautiful, with a high usability and a helpful tutorial created especially for newcomers.
Mobile Dynamix is the developer of CrossMe Color, an interesting puzzle app with 16 levels for free and 150 in total.
The first levels have hints for beginners, while more experienced Japanese crosswords players can find more challenging, larger puzzles. It’s easy to learn how to play the game, but you will need logical and analytical skills.

Japanese crosswords, also known as nonogram, hanjie, griddlers, picross, crucipixel, edel, figurepic, grafilogika, japanilaiset, karala!, kare, logicolor, logigraphe, oekaki, oekaki-mate, pic-a-pix, pikurosu, ristikot, shchor, square, tsunami, uftor or paint by numbers puzzles, started appearing in Japanese puzzle magazines. Non Ishida published three picture grid puzzles in 1988 in Japan under the name of "Window Art Puzzles". Subsequently in 1990, James Dalgety in the UK invented the name Nonograms after Non Ishida, and The Sunday Telegraph started publishing them on a weekly basis.
In japanese nonograms the numbers are a form of discrete tomography that measures how many unbroken lines of filled-in squares there are in any given row or column. For example, a clue of "4 8 3" would mean there are sets of four, eight, and three filled squares, in that order, with at least one blank square between successive groups. To solve Japanese nonogram, one needs to determine which squares will be filled and which will be empty.
These nonograms are often black and white, describing a binary image, but they can also be colored. If colored, the number clues are also colored to indicate the color of the squares. In such crossword two differently colored numbers may have a space in between them. For example, a black four followed by a red two could mean four black boxes, some empty spaces, and two red boxes, or it could simply mean four black boxes followed immediately by two red ones.
Hanjie has no theoretical limit on size, and is not restricted to square layouts.
Griddlers were implemented by 1995 on hand held electronic toys in Japan. They were released with name Picross - Picture Crossword.

Game won't sync correctly yo my new device. I don't want to start over from scratch, but it's only transferring a fee of my finished boards. Fix this and the rating will be higher.
I absolutely love this game. Problem was that when I was playing, it told me to purchase a premium key which I have done a long time ago. I restored my purchases and I'm back.
