Picture Cross: Puzzle Solution
In Picture Cross, hundreds of logical puzzles await you in which you have to reveal the image hidden in the cells with the help of hints in the form of numbers.
Puzzle selection. After completing the training, which does not take you much time, you will see orderly arranged multi-colored squares. Each square is a Picture Cross puzzle. For details on any puzzle, tap the corresponding square. Please note that puzzles vary in size and difficulty level. Having made your choice, open the puzzle by touching the? Button. The tokens that are used to open puzzles can be earned in various ways during the game.
Puzzle solution. You will be taken to the puzzle screen. To the left and top of the playing field are clues - individual numbers or combinations of numbers. These numbers correspond to the groups of cells that need to be colored in the row or column in the desired order. Painted groups are separated from each other by at least one empty cell. However, the figures do not suggest how many cells that do not require filling are before the group, after it, or between groups.
First, paint over all the cells that will be logical to paint right now. For example, if the puzzle field contains 10 cells in a row, then the key "10" indicates that it is necessary to fill all the cells. A row with a key of "7.2" can only have one right decision: 7 filled cells + 1 empty + 2 more filled ones = 10. Cells that will not be precisely filled can be marked with a cross. To do this, touch the button with a cross under the playing field.
Each resolved (at least partially) row helps to solve columns perpendicular to it, and the resolved column - rows.In no case do not try to guess the answer - so you just get confused! Each puzzle has only one solution. You can better get used to the game and learn tricky ways to solve puzzles if you watch this video:
Tips If you can’t solve the puzzle in any way, you can get a hint for the coins. Touch the icon with a question mark under the game field and select a row or column - the game will automatically substitute the correct answer there.You can exit the puzzle at any time by tapping the back button. All filled cells will be saved, and you can return to solving the puzzle later. If the puzzle is unlocked but not yet solved, it is marked with a pause icon.

Control. The game has two control modes.
- In the drawing mode, paint over the cells and mark them with a cross by touching and swiping the finger across the playing field. The drawing mode is switched by the buttons located under the puzzle. To erase a filled cell or remove a cross, tap the desired cell or swipe through it in the same drawing mode.
- In alternative mode, control accuracy is improved. Use it if you find it difficult to select cells. In this mode, the cursor appears on the screen. When you touch and drag your finger across the screen, the cursor moves after your finger.Touch any cell to quickly move the cursor to it. Then the cell pointed to by the cursor can be painted over or marked with a cross by touching the corresponding button.
Pin. To quickly paint over large groups of cells, you can use the Pin button. Touch it to lock the cursor in one place, then swipe the playing field. So you select several cells at once.

Picture Cross: Color Puzzles
For your successes in the game, you can open colored Japanese crosswords. They need to paint over the cells in different colors. At the edges of the crossword puzzle there are numbers-hints that will help you choose the right color and number of cells. Color Japanese crosswords are somewhat different from ordinary ones. The rules of classic Japanese crosswords can be found in the "Solving the puzzle" section. The numbers at the edges of the crossword puzzle indicate the number of cells that need to be painted in a row in the corresponding row, and the color around the numbers determines the color of these cells.
Please note that in colored Japanese crosswords between filled cells, there is not always a blank.Some strategies from black and white Japanese crosswords here simply will not work! An exception is two numbers of the same color standing next to each other - in this case, there must be at least one empty cell between the areas of the filled cells.
Using the buttons below the crossword puzzle, you can select a color for the cells or a cross (used to indicate cells that will definitely remain empty). When you select a color, all tooltip numbers of the same color immediately stand out.
First steps. First, paint over all the cells for which the solution is obvious. For example, if the puzzle field contains 15 cells in a row, then the prompt "15" indicates that all cells must be painted over. A line with the prompts "1, 14" can have only one right decision: 1 cell of one color + 14 cells of another color = 15.
Cells that will not be precisely painted over can be marked with a cross. To do this, touch the button with a cross under the playing field. Each resolved (at least partially) row helps to solve columns perpendicular to it, and the resolved column - rows. In no case do not try to guess the answer: so you just get confused! If you want to clear the filled cells, select an eraser among the tools and click on each one in turn.
