Description

The professor has just come home from his vacation only to find that all the data on his digital camera is scrambled. To get to the bottom of this, he sits down with his corrupt memory card and starts deciphering the photos one by one to come to the conclusion where and how it happened, also where he went on vacation in the first place...

Piczle Lines is a puzzle game which plays like a cross between a picross game and connect-the-dots. Each puzzle is comprised of a screen with colored blocks scattered across the playing field. In order to reveal the hidden picture these numbers must be connected to each other, while being the same color and using the amount of steps shown in the block. So for example, a red block with the number 7 has to connect to another red block with the number 7, while also only using 7 steps on the board to get there. The end result will be a full picture once all blocks are connected.

The game features a Story Mode over 6 chapters with 20 puzzles each. The first one is free, and the rest can be purchased as an in-app purchase. There is also a Puzzle Mode with several packs of themed puzzles to solve. In this mode puzzles can be solved in any order. Several puzzle packs can be downloaded in addition to the one which is included.
