NoNoSparks: The Ark
Building an ark? Don't forget your nonograms! Beardshaker Games has released another episode in the NoNoSparks series of picross puzzles with NoNoSparks: The Ark. Now, it's up to you to help build the ark that will save the world's animals (the animals you helped create in NoNoSparks: Genesis), all with the power of grids, pencils, and logic!
If you're familiar with the game of picross, you can jump right in, ignoring the tutorial windows the game uses to teach you how to play. Use the number clues on the sides of the board to figure out which blocks need to be filled and which remain empty. If you see "3 1", for example, you need to fill three squares, leave at least one square blank, then fill one square. Use the mouse to mark spaces as filled or blank, clicking on the icons at the bottom to switch between pen types (or holding the [spacebar] to temporarily switch). Once the grid is complete, a picture is sketched out and then added to the ark mosaic, dropping animals and various materials in as you work your way to a well-stocked ship!
NoNoSparks: The Ark features great artwork, something you rarely see in browser or mobile picross games. The interface is just about flawless, allowing you to quickly fill or erase squares without fuss. Better yet, there's no penalty for mistakes, nor is there a timer or any sort of scoring mechanism. It's just you and the puzzles, exactly the way it should be! Easy to play, satisfying to master, and with plenty of visual flair to reward you for being the puzzle solving master you already knew you were!
