Beast Pixels is another picross puzzler. I enjoyed it - I quite like the way the white silhouettes made coloured pictures ("Oh! So that's what that was meant to look like").
That said, the game lacks any basic picross tools. As a result it gets quite difficult towards the end: the last two puzzles I had to screen capture into paint and use the fill tool to colour in the boxes: I like to use colours depending on the vein of logic I'm currently following.
EDIT: LOL - somehow I played the entire game without realising the big square button introduced in puzzle 2 lets you mark dead squares. More than likely I breezed through puzzle 2 without reading the text. Sigh.
Here are the results:
I started with the hint, which lets you colour in the white squares as definite pixels. The dark blue squares are then logically dead squares (I think I've coloured a few extra ones here as I advanced the puzzle: never hurts to do this - just makes it hard to illustrate properly the way I solved the puzzle ;). Next I worked on the outline (light red). For the outline, I started at the bottom (the 9; 3; 2; 1 rows) because there is obviously underlying symmetry here, then worked clockwise. I should note that initially I placed the "2" row incorrectly, but this got corrected when completed the puzzle by colouring the inside (light yellow squares).
No hint for this one: I started on the bottom half (below the dark blue line of squares): colouring in the white squares (definite pixels), followed by the light red squares (logically follow on from the white squares). To help with completing the top half, I coloured the completed numbers in the columns (dark red). The result of completing the bottom half allows you to colour the light blue squares as definite pixels, and the dark deep blue squares as dead squares. Solving the rest of the puzzle (light green squares) took a little time: I worked from the center to the RHS (that wasn't too hard) - then it was a matter of finishing the LHS (that was the tricky bit).
For those of you who bothered reading my comments: I hope that helped you with solving picross puzzles. If not, at least you can use the pictures to solve the last two puzzles ;)
