I've been clean for a few years now, but not too long ago, Picross was my digital cocaine. I consumed Picross DS in unhealthy amounts, and when the game was exhausted and I thought I could finally be sober again, Picross 3D came out. My family and friends had to stage an intervention.

Though the simple, grid-based puzzles that produced low-res images have been out of my mind and body for a while, seeing Tappingo and its explanation have brought the itch back. Developed by Goodbye Galaxy Games, Tappingo is not a nonogram puzzle exactly like Picross. Instead, it features colored pixels with numbers attached, and flicking any one pixel will create a straight line of that color until it hits an obstruction. The goal is to manipulate the puzzle such that each numbered pixel forms a line with that many dots in it.

If done correctly, the end result is a delicious voxel-fruit or some other colorful image. And of course, completing a puzzle brings the satisfaction of knowing you are one step closer to permanent puzzle game sobriety.

Tappingo is launching on the 3DS soon

Yet another 3DS game is on the horizon, and in this case, it's Tappingo -- an intriguing looking puzzler. It'll launch on February 27th in the US, and March 6th in Europe. Tappingo weighs in at $2.99, and will feature over 100 puzzles. Overall, this feels perfectly suited for the 3DS -- the price is right, the control scheme looks sound, and it has a ton of bang for your buck.more
