Played this a lot as a kid. Would be fun to see some achievements for it one day.
Daphtaru 11 Jan 2022 06:37
Hopefully the dlc sets can be used somehow.

Major W, every single Jupiter picross game on a supported console now has Achievements on RA
Daphtaru 7 Jan 2023 12:01
Aw, I guess no one has the dlc or not able to use it.
LillyJade 7 Jan 2023 12:37
Haven't had luck woth the DLC yet no, but if I find a way to make it usable I'll make a subset for it.

For anyone wondering for the other game modes in daily picross you have to play on different days to unlock. The last one unlocks after 20 different days of opening the game :)

orchidcnr 5 Apr 2023 20:52
^doesnt require any overclocking either so you don’t have to worry about shit battery life. runs full speed through Switchroot Android as well
Kurochi185 15 Apr 2023 23:29
Anyone got a tip for the Bonus Games? They're incredibly difficult on PC.
LillyJade 21 May 2023 14:40
Using the Stop feature to save your game and return to it later will possibly break the achievement you're working on and shouldn't be allowed by save protection anyways. In the process of updating descriptions to clarify this.
Digifiend 20 Jun 2023 21:25
Kurochi, using a mouse is probably better than using a touchpad. The ideal solution would be a touchscreen though, if you have a mobile capable of emulating DS.

Hmmmmmm... Picrooooooss... YUMMY !

Mastered, thanks for the set
If you don't want to wait to unlock daily stuff use the RunAsDate program
Aeternal 11 Feb 2024 21:13
Nice game, played it a lot when I was younger. Thanks for the achievement set :D

Tip #1: You can use in-game hints and still get the achievements. I beat ~95% of the game before I realized that :) Definitely made the game a lot easier since some of the later free mode puzzles can be quite tricky and may require multiple guesses.

Tip #2: If you struggle with the bonus games or daily challenges, try using a mouse instead of a touchscreen for input. It makes it so much easier. If you use the DeSmuME core like I did, make sure to change your input in Retroarch to Touchscreen instead of Mouse (when in game press F1 to open the Quick Menu -> Core Options -> Input -> Pointer Type 'Touchscreen'). That makes it a lot more accurate.
