Many had never heard of Picross before they played Mario's Picross, and many still probably haven't heard of it since then either. The title was a niche puzzle game, using a puzzle format created in Japan and translating it to the Mario universe. Essentially, you were solving puzzles within a box of columns and rows in order to form the resulting picture. With 256 levels in total, Picross could have you plugging away at numbers and lines for days, offering a challenging and rewarding experience for all inquisitive minds.
