Animal Color Cross is a highly addictive entertainment for everyone including Picross style addicts, Sudoku lovers, gamers, and non gamers alike! Players can enjoy more than 50 hours of gameplay by choosing among 72 individual grids for their daily brain work out.

The goal of the game is to reconstruct a mysterious animal image that lies beneath the grid. Players simply need to fill in each square of the grid with one of the appropriate colors available. Deduce the right color by using the numbers written around the grid. Gamers can play whenever they have a few spare minutes and can record their progression on the fly.

The game includes a quick start tutorial, a saving system and a user-friendly interface to help gamers along the way.

Want more challenge?

Don’t worry, you won’t be bitten, clawed, mauled, rammed, crushed, or trampled by any kinds of wild animals you might uncover behind the pattern. Work with grid numbers and layers of colors and if you do well, each individual grid reveals an animal illustration in pixel art and you unlock a portion of a larger, secret, and beautiful image.

Animal Color Cross invites you to travel the world and to discover local animals from 5 continents. Players can select among 8 Levels presented as Geographical Zones including Europe, Oceania, North Pole, Pacific, North America, South America, etc., to discover local fauna. Each Geographical Zone features an increasing level of difficulty. Compete against yourself for better scores! If your brain needs a “super challenge” you can try a game grid as large as 20 by 25 titles to fill in with up to eight colors.

With its progressive difficulty and its wide number of puzzles, Animal Color Cross will keep you hooked for at least 50 hours.

Animal Color Cross is rated “E” for Everyone by the Entertainment Software Review Board.

Animal Color Cross is rated +3 by the PEGI and 0 by the USK
