  • "If like me you’ve been craving a good implementation of the puzzle for PC, then you’ve found it in Pictopix. If you’re looking for a fun, brain-using puzzle presented splendidly, then now is the time to discover why Picross/Nonograms are quite so great."
    - John Walker, Rock Paper Shotgun
  • "Tomlab Games is off to a great start in introducing a classic from Japan to the Sudoku lovers past its borders. Pictopix is a fun and relaxing game that anyone can play. It lets you relax while working your brain in an entertaining way. If you're the creative type but can’t draw to save your life, if you have $6 to spare, then consider buying this game. Chances are, you won't regret it."
    7/10 - Jessica Andrews, OpNoobs
  • "In conclusion, Pictopix delivers a solid and incredibly relaxing experience for all ages. With only 150 puzzles it’s a little light on content, but the developers say there’s more in the pipeline. Once players can publish their own creations, the longevity of the game will be increased massively and I think it’s something I’ll be revisiting for months to come. So put your feet up, make a cup of tea and unwind with a bit of picross."
    7.7/10- Melanie Blagg, The Inner Circle
  • "Pictopix is an excellent version of Picross which respects the rules of this type of game."
    8/10 - Eskarina, Kiss my Geek
  • "Pictopix is a quiet and relaxing nonogram puzzler with plenty of challenging puzzles and the right amount of helpful hints for beginners."
    8/10 - Courtney Ehrenhofler, TechRaptor
  • "Pictopix is a delightful game that anyone with any interested in picross should buy."
    Matthew Codd, Shinding
  • "Pictopix (...) is a polished, cleanly designed, and logically balanced puzzle experience bolstered by tens of hours worth of nonograms to solve as well as a variety of hint options catering to players of all skill levels."
    Matt Litten, VGBlogger
