Great game

This is a great game. Very challenging. However, I've so far been unable to solve a few of them and am a little concerned there may be no solution or there may be a typo.

Great, but not all puzzles are solvable

It is nicely done, and handles and responds nicely. Great for those who love nonograms.

If these puzzles get fixed or are replaced with new, solvable ones, I'd give a 5 start rating.

    Works well except for the quick helps button. Quick helps won't stay on so I can see what it does.

    Great puzzles!

    The puzzles are terrific - I wish there were more. A few of them are not possible to solve or have errors in the clues, but it's still fun and work the cost.

    Japanese Crosswords is an awesome game

    I highly recommend this game. If you are a logic problem buff you will love this game. It really puts your logic skills to the test!

    Problems with some, but fun.

    There are definitely typos in some of the larger puzzles - it would be great if they got fixed because the big puzzles are such fun. Most of the puzzles work fine though, and the puzzle type is one of my favorites. My other issue is that I wish it didn't put a " puzzle complete" message in a big box over the picture just as you fill in the last square; I want to see the picture! But if you like Sudoku or Cross Sums, I highly recommend you give these a try ... you just might become an addict like me!

    Great for a buck

    Love the idea but would like a few more options. Would be great to pick the color of the tiles. Black tiles with a black grid it all just kinda blends in. Some kind of hint would be nice, in the 35 x 35 and so, when you make a mistake its hard to see where you went wrong. A undo would be nice too.

    Nice

    I enjiyed these puzzles. There were times when I thought a few ouzzles were not solvable. With a bit time they all worked out. The larger puzzles are just diffult to play on the Nook due to the screen size.
