    Great, but not all puzzles are solvable

    It is nicely done, and handles and responds nicely. Great for those who love nonograms.
    However, some of the larger puzzles are unsolvable. As if there are typos or something. I'd work on a line, start to branch off of it, and then I'd look at an adjacent line, and they would contradict each other.
    If these puzzles get fixed or are replaced with new, solvable ones, I'd give a 5 start rating.

    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.

    Needs work

    This is very addicting. Some of the large puzzles are unsolvable. If you dont mind not being able to complete the largest puzzles then go for it. If your like me and that bugs you look at the other ones available

    Problem with large puzzles?

    I think there is a problem with some of the large puzzles. They appear to have no solution using the instructions provided in the game. Addicting though.

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

    A bit frustrating

    I've played several of the "flipPix" puzzles of this kind, and I must say I prefer them more. This version is a bit frustrating. There are no hints available, and nothing to tell me where I've gone wrong. I would enjoy this more if I had hints to rely on when my brain can't figure the picture out. If you're looking for difficulty, this is the game for you. If you just want to spend some time vegging out...don't buy this game.

    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!

    Highly recommended

    The only problem I've had with this game is that once I start playing it, I can'tput it down. It's great!

    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!

    Needs work

    As noted by others, many puzzles (especially the advanced ones) do not have valid clues. Many are unsolvable. Please fix for Nook platform and I'll give higher rating.

    Good app, but solutions not checked

    Lots of fun, a little hard at times to navigate/see all of the puzzle in the larger puzzles. Final pictures are very nice. Developers did not check their later puzzles though, as some of these are completely unsolvable. This is very frustrating. I tried to solve some of them only to end up being unable to, went through starting at other parts of the puzzle only to find the same problem arise at the same place.

    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.
