October 13, 2005

In Griddlers Deluxe v.5.1 one finds comfy playing environment, coupled with feature-rich puzzle editor, and propped by endless source of ready-made griddlers.

PuzzleHome.com announces the release of the new version of Griddlers Deluxe, a fascinating logic puzzle for the whole family. Improved and extended, Griddlers Deluxe v5.1 offers several playing modes, a built-in puzzle editor, a comfortable interface with rich features, and a collection of ready-made griddlers of various complexity levels. These features make Griddlers Deluxe v5.1 incomparably superior to griddlers on paper.

Griddlers originate from Japan, where at the close of the 20th century two people, Non Ishida and Tetsuya Nishio, independently came to the identical idea of the puzzle. According to it, any image, presented as an array of black and white or coloured pixels on a grid, can be converted into number clues. With a little thought and perseverance one can recover the original image using only these numbers. The recovery of an original image from numbers showing the place of every pixel on the grid is the underlying principle of the puzzle.

It took only a few years for the first 'nonograms', as they were called then, to reach millions of people from the pages of the Telegraph, Mainichi and other periodicals. The idea has long since outgrown the limits of the project started by the Telegraph. Today, the absorbing exercise of wit engages people's interest in every part of the world.

Griddlers Deluxe v5.1 started off as a verification tool for puzzle solutions. Inspired by users' support and suggestions, Puzzlehome.com developed Griddlers Deluxe into a fully-fledged gaming module with manual and automatic solving capabilities, hints and error control. Now Griddlers Deluxe not only provides support in solving and verifying griddlers, but also offers a wide range of editing options to help create new unique puzzles. The program allows importing images from other formats, editing them in the program's window, and making them into original griddlers for family and friends. Its wizard makes the job of creating a puzzle simple and enjoyable. Moreover, users can tap into the endless source of new griddlers available from the company's website http://puzzlehome.com.

Interface features of Griddlers Deluxe v5.1 provide exceedingly comfortable playing and editing environment. The program offers wide customisation to adjust its palette and style to your liking. A choice of backgrounds and hues for the grid and pixels can easily refresh the puzzle area. All the rich features found in Griddlers Deluxe v5.1 become readily available through the program's intuitive interface.
