Hi !

 

Im back on lynx coding/testing after a looong time (almost ten years!) without touching it. I discovered the game Picross done by Chris Vick for Karri's megapak 1 and it seems that the game wasnt released.

 

I would have loved playing with it, someone have some news about it ?

 

Thanks !

True. Picross just had a few levels at the time. I believe that I only got the binary.

Too bad, as this kind of game would suit perfectly the lynx... !

 

Thanks for your input :)

I had a small dig in my archives for picross. Never got more than a downloadable binary. The code was written by Chris Vick.

He also wrote sketch for MegaPak 1.

 

The game is a puzzle game. There are hints of how many pixels should be on horizontal and vertical rows. Then you click on the pixels to build up a picture. If I remember correctly it had only one puzzle. When you solved it you get:

The game is nice but needs much more levels to be interesting.

Picoss would be great for Lynx. Love it for the classic game-boy.
