CluePix is a picture solving game. Draw pixel art using those 2 clues:
- Color bars show mixed pixels from their line.
- Digits show how many pixels around are the same color.
There's an ingame tutorial. Once a picture is solved, it is saved and reloaded on next game sessions, so no hurry, even though the game is short and might be finished in one sitting. CluePix is a proof of concept for an original puzzle game, hence the low number of pictures to solve. As such, feel free to comment on what you liked or didn't about it!

CluePix started 3 years ago in search for a puzzle solving game that felt like drawing tiny pixel art. I love how much you can put in a single 8×8 sprite, and I'm sure any of us Pico-8 worshippers do too! I also love logic puzzles with a drawing flavor in the likes of Nurikabe, Picross or even Minesweeper, but they only scratch that "pixel art" itch, not even mentioning their lack of color. They also often have issues with being solvable by pure logic, ie without any sheer luck or wild guess. CluePix tries to fill that gap.
Finally, I could complete this game.
I'm glad that colors are given at border, otherwise this could be even more puzzling.
My biggest gripe is the 3 grey colors here. They are almost similar that I had to test the color to see if I picked the correct grey color when 2 or all of them are available.
