New Griddlers Deluxe 2006: PC-based Griddling Experience at Its Best!

For immediate release

May 22, 2006




From the inventive mind of puzzle designers at PuzzleHome.com comes the freshest version of Griddlers Deluxe 2006. This is a digitally recreated version of griddlers, popular "paper-and-pencil" puzzles from Japan that spawned an immense interest among puzzle lovers across the world. Today, griddlers, also known as Japanese puzzles or nonograms, have become an international craze. They regularly appear on handheld electronic toys and papers of magazines. In Japan alone there are over 10 regular magazines for griddlers and many books. The Sunday Telegraph has been publishing them continuously for 14 years for the joy of their readers. Now, Griddlers Deluxe 2006 brings the authentic griddlers experience direct to your PC.

The idea behind griddlers is a bit tricky, but once you get used to it the game will be fun. The player is given a griddler, which is a grid made up of solid blank squares. At the ends of rows and columns there are numbers that serve as clues. The numbers are the number of consecutive black squares. Thus a clue 1.3.4 would mean that there is one solid followed by a block of 3 solids followed by a block of 4 solids. The challenge of the game is to work out how many blank spaces there are in between. When you have completed all the rows and columns you will have revealed a hidden picture. Of course, solving griddlers doesn't come easy. It's a challenging logical exercise for you your brains but plenty of fun too. Griddlers Deluxe 2006 comes with a free online collection of griddlers so puzzle-solving doesn't grow stale in a short time. Currently, there are 1000 griddlers and their collection is being regularly updated. You can download new griddlers from http://puzzlehome.com.

The replayability of Griddlers Deluxe 2006 is also enhanced with two types of griddlers, black-and-white and colored ones. Black-and-white griddlers are very simple and good to solve for beginners. When you have learned how to play the game, you can continue with colored griddlers, which are more fun to solve simply because they are colored. For real professionals, Griddlers Deluxe 2006 offers a built-in editor for creating griddlers on their own. You will have an ability to draw griddlers, as well as create them from photos, icons and other images. A griddler can be printed on paper and solved in the classic way with a pencil and an eraser. The game will provide hours of enjoyable play time for you and your family! Happy Griddling!
