Picross, Nonograms, puzzles

Posted in Completed, Games, Mobile by Nogamara on July 27, 2018

I might have mentioned it in the past, but Mario’s Picross was one of my favorite games on the Game Boy Classic (although I got my own copy only in early 2003 and played it on a GBA) and I’ve solved these nonograms on paper in puzzle magazines, and played through quite a few games. It never seems to get old.

Currently I’m playing “Picross Fairytale – nonogram: Red Riding Hood secret” and it’s one of the hardest ones I’ve ever played. (The music is nice, too, but the “story” is a bit thin and gladly skippable”. It seems to be free to play still, so go get it.

There’s also InfiniPicross (played for 27h, got 22/22 achievements) and Picross Touch (played for 99 hours, 17/18 achievements, including one for 1000 puzzles done, yikes). Also both very good.

On Android I played Picross Luna and am playing Picross Luna II right now (but I don’t like their near-endless engame with like 100 puzzles that form a complete picture) and Two Eyes. All of them are pretty cool.

Quick Update: Ragnarok

Posted in Mobile, Ragnarok Online by Nogamara on October 22, 2015

Three weeks flew past and I didn’t really do much than work too much and then play some games at night.

It’s still mostly Ragnarok. Hunter is 86/50, Blacksmith is 68/27 and actually fun to level these days. The Acolyte is a Priest now (sitting at 54/1), the Dancer is 58/13 and my Holy Cross Crusader is already 66/27. And then there’s 2 3x/3x Thieves who will be Assassin and Rogue. Altoholism to the next level. The Gunslinger is stalled at 45 though.

I’ve also started playing Lost Lands on Steam which is F2P and in a genre I didn’t even know I liked. You have a picture and have to search for certain objects in a short timespan in this picture. But graphically it reminds me of Heroes of Might and Magic 3 and overall it has some RPG feeling to it with quests and stuff. It’s nice and you can play without paying for anything in the cash shop 2-3 times for 10 minutes each per day.

And I’m also playing Fallout Shelter, another “let’s spend 1-5min several times per day” game.

Android Games roundup

Posted in Mobile by Nogamara on October 2, 2014

Stuff I liked, mostly puzzle games

Stuff I had installed but never tried?

Stuff I hated

And yes, “My apps” on the play store is quite handy for such a list.

What now?

In summary, I am not too impressed with all the Android games I tried. I loved hardly any of those, I liked a few, but mostly they entertained me for not very long.

 

I’ve never been a big “mobile” gamer, my only real console was a Game Boy Advance that I used from 2002 to 2005 maybe, thus I will speak in terms of what I know:

Everything twitchy is out, as I hate the controls on the phone (Tetris, Dr. Mario, Xenon 2).

Same for Jump’n’Runs and Racing basically. (Super Mario Land, Mario Kart)

I am not in the mood for RPGs right now, so anything like Zelda, Golden Sun or Pokémon is out.
And I’ve never been a huge fan of Mega Man, Castlevania or Metroid.

Picross could work well I think. And Great Little War Game reminds me of Advance Wars of Final Fantasy Tactics.
