Added points and rankings for players and designers, and over 3,200 logic art puzzles.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE

User Profiles, Picross Points, Gamercards and our Live Global Rankings! *

Wii Picross is a top ranking destination for curious and dedicated logic art puzzlers alike, with over 1.3 million puzzles already served in a wide variety of difficulties. Continuing with Quest Engine's friendly, 'free to play', 'user driven content' approach, you can now become a Wii Picross member and create a user profile that tracks all of the puzzles you play, fave, and design. You can watch your achievements stack up and share all of your picross creations with the convenience of a single link.

A new competitive element has been added to the site in the shape of Picross Points. These are earned in a variety of ways as you play and design puzzles, and they define your position on three live, global rankings: Player, Designer, and an Ultimate leaderboard.

Gamercards are generated around the clock too, so those fighting their way up the ranks can display their position with pride wherever they go.

Picross is an immensely rewarding game that blurs the line between mathematics and art, and is uniquely enjoyed by people of all ages. At Wii Picross, we aim to foster its healthy aspects by encouraging people to learn, play and design their own puzzles to share with the world. Our dedicated staff are always on hand in the friendly community forums to talk tactics and we test, label and approve all submissions manually.

Puzzle fans have one more reason to explore the fundamentals of the game. Wii Picross will be holding its first puzzle design contest and theme week starting May 12th, with prizes awarded for the seven best submissions. All information for this will be announced on-site soon, so come and get familiar with our picross design suite and then play to win!
