Picture Cross, also known as cross numbers, is a type of logic puzzle where you piece together a hidden picture based on numerical clues. First, you are given a series of numbers for the width and height of the grid. Next, you use these numbers to complete the puzzle. Picture Cross may take a while to learn and get used to playing, but it’s an extremely fun game.
It is an interesting number logic puzzle where players must complete the picture using their skills and common sense. The rules are easy- each row contains a series of consecutive numbers that describe how many squares should be colored in that row or column. Each row or column has at least one block filled in with colour.
Use logic to solve the grid.
In a picture cross puzzle, use the numbers at the left and top of every column and row to determine which squares you have to colour.
Each number outside the grid will help you identify the number of squares in that column or row that needs to be colored. The numbers are arranged so that you can use deduction to work out which squares to colour in. For example, if there’s a five at the top of the screen, it means five blocks in that row must be colored – but if there’s another number before it, with more space between them, then those two numbers must have three spaces between them (in any order).
Use the numbers at the top and on the left of each row and column to determine which squares to colour
A picture cross game is similar to a crossword puzzle. Each row and column in the game grid has one or more numbers. The numbers represent the number of blocks in that row or column, and they also represent the order in which you should colour them.
For example, if a row has three boxes with two numbers, such as 2-3, two shaded blocks will be followed by three unshaded blocks.
The numbers on each row or column never go out of order. If a row has 1-4-2, those numbers will appear in that order from left to right.
If a row or column contains only one block, fill in all of the rows or columns to its left and above it.
This is important because it allows you to fill in more rows and columns and get you closer to solving the puzzle. For example, if a row has a 2, all squares below that two must be filled in. Therefore, all of the blocks above that row can also be filled in.
With this knowledge, you can use deduction to determine which squares to colour in.
You use the knowledge of the numbers and the game’s logic to work out what to fill in. Follow these steps:
- First, count how many blocks there are in each row and column
- Subtract this number from the number of squares in that row or column
- The number you get is how many squares you need to fill in
