Picroxx! is a Picross homebrew clone for the Nintendo 3DS console. The purpose of the project is porting almost every single puzzle from all mainstream Picross games, currently half the puzzles from Mario's Picross are available (comprised of 64 levels).

It's fully programmed in Lua, running under the LÖVEPotion framework. The game utilizes a very simple format for levels. They only contain four lines of code and the actual puzzle in Lua tables. When loading a puzzle, the game will automatically parse the file into a playable level.

Installation

Available in 3DSX/SMDH format.
