As mentioned yesterday I'm out all day today until later this evening celebrating my sons 21st birthday. I will moderate later this evening. If you have any issues please check the FAQ's thread over in the game discussion forums HERE.
The Game:
We've had Picross logic games previously, but this is not one was one of them, tohugh it looks very similar to a previous giveaway mentioned below (starred), they are also known as Nonograms, Hanjie or Griddler puzzles; for example, we've previously been given Riddles of the Mask (April 2017), Nonograms: Wolf's Stories (June 2019), CryptoPics June 2012, Royal Riddles* Aug 2015 and Shellblast (July 2009), .
You can see a couple of videos of game play HERE and HERE.

A logic game!! Yay, I am in heaven!

I wanted to say Happy New Year, Stephen! I cannot believe your son is 21. How the time does fly!

Also a HNY and thank you to the GOTD team and all those who are so generous as to gift us their games here. And HNY to those folks who help us all out by posting their informative comments.

A peaceful and healthy 2020 to you all!

That said, I love this type of game and look forward to playing it later when I have some time. Downloaded and installed (WIN10Homex64) without issue. Thanks again!

Mike H, No, he;s a home boy and does not like alcoholic drinks. I've offered him everything under the sun since he turned 18 but he has always refused. He really is tee total.

Training -> Expert -> Level 1
has 2 solutions. So this is not a good training sample.
All 120 adventure levels could be solved without guessing.

Yay picross games! My favorites are Gizmos, but these aren't bad. I've gotten past level 13 with no problems. Win7-64. Thanks all, and Happy New Year to all!

I like this type of logic puzzle very much. That's why I was disappointed when it went sideways on level 13. A row with 0 should be all X's. However, doing that gives a message "Too many errors". Start over, put in 1 at a time. Same message. X or block, it doesn't seem to matter. I put the game away for an hour and came back. It seemed to be okay again, but only for a while. If there are only two options, they can't both gen an error. Maybe it's something with my system. Dunno. But I am disappointed. If anyone has an idea, I'd love to hear it.

CalmDog, I had the same problem at that point! I kept trying in different ways, but it kept on complaining that there were "Too many errors". A pity, because I had enjoyed the game up to there. I'll try again presently, but if it won't let me get past that glitch - well, it's not worth keeping for only a dozen levels. :-(

I had no problem with "Too many errors". But sometimes it crashed after finishing a level before the progress was written, So I had to play that level again and it did not crash again.

5, I haven't deleted the game (yet) because I do enjoy this type. I have been back to the glitch level and even mamaged to get through it once. So - I'll keep it for the time being. But it does have a few little annoyances as you mention, so whether it will be a permanent fixture for me - well, only time will tell.

A very smooth and speedy download and install. No problems noticed in the process at all! And these games are not hugely dependent on speed and dexterity, which makes them more playable - and therefore more fun - for antiques like me. Many thanks - and all the best to the birthday boy!

Happy New Year to Rabbits everywhere.

I wanted to add my HNY to everyone else. The game offer today isn't my cup of coffee, it reminds me of the Win 98 Minecraft (?) game which I stunk at. I do appreciate the GGOTD people for offering and WhiteRabbit for moderating and for the entertaining replies each Sat & Sun. I may not comment often but I do come in every weekend. Have a great week!

Thank You, Thank You, Thank You. I love this type of game. It downloaded quickly. I have not found any improvements thus far. Plays similar to others I have played like this.

Same here. Used to place this theme years ago. For some reason it would hold me with the appearance of simplicity but you know there has to be more challenge hidden inside. Yup it'll get hard enough that just giving up is best solution at highest levels and moving on.
Yet per WR's posted images this one looks like fresh bells & whistles might add some fun to tease remaining brain cells. Thanks for the chance. WR enjoy the 21 - all downhill from there! I kid of course.

Thanks. My favorite kind of game. Nonograms Wolf Stories and an old Fill and Cross are the best ever. I don't have this one.
