How to play

A nonogram 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!

The numbers above and to the left of the grid describe the number of consecutive shaded cells in the row or column. For example, if we imagine a 10x10 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.

See below for a small example on a 6x6 grid. We see that the shaded cells reveal a smiley face!

If the above is unclear please leave feedback!


PicoCross took most of a week to create. I have had experience creating projects in Unity before, but this was my first attempt at something for the Pico 8. I am very happy with how this turned out and would love to receive some feedback, even if critical.

This was my first attempt at creating music and sound effects for a game and I am quite happy with the result. It took a good part of a day to get the music right. It is simple, but a jam!

Updates to v1.2

  • Added 10 new levels!
  • Fixed a bug where saved progress was not presenting correctly when loading from start.

Thank you everyone for all the feedback!

Very nice! One suggestion - this should really have a way to distinguish between "I don't know what this tile is" and "I've determined that this tile can't be shaded".

@luchak, thank you very much for the feedback! I have had a similar comment on the PICO-8 subreddit, and will be adding that in an update. :)

@luchak, thanks again for your feedback.
In the latest version I have added the ability to flag blank cells. :)

This is much more satisfying now. Thanks for adding the feature!
