New Pic-a-Pix Pieces Demo For Nintendo Switch Now Available!

Staffordshire, UK – Lightwood Games has released a new playable demo of Pic-a-Pix Pieces for Nintendo Switch. It is available to download on the Nintendo eShop today!

Pic-a-Pix is a picture logic game, sometimes known as Picross, Nonogram or Hanjie, where whimsical pixel-art pictures are created by solving puzzles.

In Pic-a-Pix Pieces, large pictures have been split into a number of smaller pieces. Each piece is a puzzle grid, and by solving them all you’ll form a mosaic that reveals a spectacular final image.

The new demo contains two pictures, which will be fully revealed after solving 18 full-colour Pic-a-Pix puzzle pieces.

It replaces the previous Christmas-themed demo, which was available for a limited time during the game’s pre-order period in December.

Completionists need not worry, however. The puzzles from both the Christmas demo and this new demo are both available within the full version of Pic-a-Pix Pieces, in the Extra section!

The first monthly DLC is also now available, and can also be found in the Extra section. Two packs are available, each offering 48 more puzzles – forming two new large pictures – with a choice of 15×15 or 20×20 grids.

Lightwood Games will continue to support both Pic-a-Pix Pieces and Pic-a-Pix Deluxe throughout 2019, with new monthly DLC puzzle packs.

Word Sudoku – Switch Game Footage!

Word Sudoku Launching Nov 22nd on Nintendo Switch; Demo Now Available To Download!

Staffordshire, UK – Lightwood Games is delighted to announce that Word Sudoku by POWGI is coming to Nintendo Switch, with a free playable demo now available on the Nintendo eShop.

Word Sudoku by POWGI is a word-based twist on the classic logic puzzle game.

The core gameplay will be familiar to sudoku fans, but instead of using the digits 1 to 9, Word Sudoku is solved by placing nine different letters so that no row, column or grid section contains the same letter twice.

When completed, each puzzle will reveal a different nine-letter word, spelled across one row or column of the grid. This can act as an additional hint, if needed.

Players can also switch the puzzle into “number mode” if they prefer.

Touch screen controls are supported in Handheld Mode, but the game can also be played in Tabletop Mode or TV Mode using a controller.

The game contains 240 puzzles in various difficulties and is priced at $7.99 / GBP £6.99 / €7.99. Pre-orders are now open.

Fill-a-Pix: Phil’s Epic Adventure Brings a World of Picture Puzzles to Nintendo Switch!

Staffordshire, UK – Lightwood Games is proud to announce that Fill-a-Pix: Phil’s Epic Adventure is now available on the Nintendo eShop for Nintendo Switch.

Fill-a-Pix: Phil’s Epic Adventure is the newest picture logic puzzle from the makers of Pic-a-Pix Deluxe, the popular full-colour picross game which was released earlier this year.

Developed by Lightwood Games and featuring puzzles by Conceptis, it introduces a brand new style – and scale – of picture puzzle to Nintendo Switch users.

The game’s narrator, Phil, invites players to assist him in developing photographs taken on his travel adventures. His not-so-instant camera has captured pictures in the form of logic puzzles!

The solutions are stunning pixel-art photos from around the world, ranging from small introductory pictures to massive landscapes with more than 6,000 pixels to fill in!

Often described as a mix of minesweeper and picross, Fill-a-Pix has only one rule. Each clue number shows how many squares in a block of nine – the clue itself, plus the eight squares around
it – should be filled in black.

A full interactive tutorial is also included to make sure players understand all the techniques needed to get stuck in. The unique Smart Cursor feature makes playing fluid and satisfying.

Options to guide you towards the next move and to check your progress so far mean you’ll never get stuck.

The Nintendo Switch version of the game contains 120 puzzles, including new puzzles which were not previously included in the Nintendo 3DS version. A further pack of 40 brand new puzzles, featuring photos from Phil’s USA Road Trip, is available as DLC.

A playable demo of the game is also available on the Nintendo eShop.

Fill-a-Pix: Phil’s Epic Adventure supports English, French, German and Spanish.

Lightwood Games Release Giant Puzzles 2 DLC For Pic-a-Pix Deluxe on Nintendo Switch!

This pack contains 30 new puzzles in the largest sizes: 30×20 and 35×25.

Giant Puzzles 2 was previously available as DLC for the Wii U version of the game, but players who previously enjoyed the game on Nintendo 3DS will not have had chance to play these puzzles before – they were just too large to fit on screen on 3DS!

The pack is priced USD $2.99 or GBP £2.99.

We have seen quite a bit of interest for more of these larger puzzles on Nintendo Switch, so we are hoping to include more Giant packs as we continue to support this game with new monthly DLC.
