QoTW: Wild Arms 1 & 2 for the Ps had an “inventive” font that was troublesome to learn; it didn’t assist their localization points in any respect. Later Wild Arms video games, together with the remake Wild Arms Alter Code F, had far more eye-friendly fonts.

I’ve been having a blast with PictoQuest, as a result of I get pleasure from nonogram puzzle video games such because the Picross collection (which additionally obtained two latest Change releases, Picross S3 and Picross Lord of the Nazarick). The RPG components of PictoQuest, resembling utilizing gadgets or acquiring extra well being, can simply be ignored. I feel they’re principally there in order that gamers unfamiliar with nonograms can get a little bit additional assist if they need it.

The PictoQuest gameplay provides a little bit extra problem to conventional nonograms, normally to resolve a puzzle earlier than a monster knocks the hero out. Some “sidequests” have an extra problem, resembling to resolve a puzzle inside a (beneficiant) time restrict, or to resolve a puzzle whereas making no errors. A few of PictoQuest’s puzzles are greater than the most important nonogram puzzles of the Picross collection (which caps out at puzzles that 20×15 squares).

The PictoQuest story is cute with the occasional joke, but it surely’s principally an “excuse plot”. PictoQuest isn’t a story-driven puzzle recreation just like the Puzzle Quest collection; it’s a puzzle recreation with a little bit little bit of story for added taste.

PictoQuest additionally has a solidly above-average soundtrack, particularly by puzzle recreation requirements. It’s a “must-have” for nonogram followers, for my part.
