Color Pic-A-Pix Light Vol. 2
Whenever Conceptis releases a new installment of their Conceptis Light puzzle series, it's always a cause for celebration. And if you're looking for some colorful pixelated picross art as paraphernalia for your personal party, then look no further than Color Pic-A-Pix Light Volume 2.
As before, the goal is to color in a picture by correctly placing colored squares. Each puzzle consists of a grid with clue numbers of various colors on the top and to the side, and the color square placement corresponds to those clues. Use the mouse or hit the [spacebar] to select colors, clicking a square once to fill it with that color, again to mark it as blank, and once more to clear it. You can also drag over a string of square to fill them with a color. A highlighted "ruler" will help players focus of the selected lines and columns. While it is allowable for strings of different colors to be adjacent, strings of same colored clues will have at least one empty square between them. Sadly, there is no option to change hue schemes for colorblind players.
With only ten new puzzles to solve, the game may feel a bit more like an addendum to the first, rather than a completely new volume. Still, Conceptis is among the best at what they do, and all ten are high-difficulty stumpers with polished presentations that should keep pen-and-pencilers occupied for quite some time.
