TL;DR: Pixelogic 5.0, a major refresh to the 14 year old picross app, is coming soon, available to both iOS and Android.
Refreshed, yet familiar, design
Pixelogic 5.0 now takes full advantage of your phone screen with a refreshed modern interface. No more black bars!
Weekly puzzles are back
The Weekly puzzle has returned to the app with an added bonus: the latest weekly is available for no charge on Sundays! Until the update is available to all, the weekly puzzle will still be available on the pixelogic.app website.
Need help? Use Bolts ⚡️
Bolt power-ups replace Second Chance packs. You can exchange Bolts for in-game hints if you're stuck or for second chances if you get a game over.
While the default Challenge gameplay mode is likely the best choice for most gamers, a “Relaxed mode” is now provided (can enable in settings), where there is no error feedback, game clock, or penalties in case you make a mistake. If you’re stuck, don’t worry, you can still use hints in this mode.
Pixelogic+ is a new subscription that unlocks all 5000+ past daily and weekly puzzles. In addition, it also unlocks premium features: Dark mode theme and Auto-assist, which automatically places Xs when a row or column is completed. If you’ve previously purchased a weekly or daily archive year pack, those puzzles will still be available without Pixelogic+.
Now on Android
Android support has been a top request for over a decade, and the same great Pixelogic will be available to Android users! Pre-register for the Android app now so you can play it on launch day!
Expect Pixelogic 5.0 as it rolls out over the next week or two, depending on the speed of the app review process. This update will provide a sold foundation for more features and puzzle content in the future.
Ich freue mich drauf. Ich spiele seit Jahren täglich Pixelogic und mir fehlt das wöchentliche Puzzle am Sonntag. Ansonsten, Achtung Suchtgefahr!
