    Picross e2 brings another sleeve of compelling nanograms on your 3DS at an affordable price. A perfect fit for keeping your head busy during otherwise boring trip to/from work/school.

    Picross E2 is a "extention pack" of Picross E: a new series of diagrams to be completed in the empty moments of the day.

    Other than that, Picross e2 is the same 2D Picross you've known with a new coating of paint. The eShop title is, as you'd expect, not the best version of Picross out there (some might pine for the return of the 'create your own puzzle' feature), but for a significant number of puzzles at that price, Picross e2 comes recommended.

    Picross e2 is yet another fun Picross game, but for the most part it simply feels like an expansion pack for the previous title. Of course, there's nothing wrong with that, especially when the core gameplay is so entertaining.

    There are little additions this time, but still it's incredibly fun and addictive. If you enjoyed the first game you'll probably love this one, since it's just a tiny step forward, but a step forward anyway.

    While this Picross is definitely better than the first ("e"), e2 adds the interesting Micross, which is a giant, famous painting made up ofWhile this Picross is definitely better than the first ("e"), e2 adds the interesting Micross, which is a giant, famous painting made up of smaller puzzles. Overall they're very easy and there aren't nearly enough of them, but they add an element to the game that "e" was missing.

    This is still a meager presentation, unfortunately, and the puzzles seem to be getting less clever. There's been just a few too many where you basically fill the box in with a couple of spots missing and are asked to really stretch to see what the object could be. We're also starting to see repeats in this one, which is also unfortunate. Still no little reward animations or games, so while I have enjoyed this one a bit, I still recommend just picking up one of the old Picross cartridges instead of downloading this if you're new to the series.
