About this game

Paint It Back takes a staple of classic puzzle books and gives it a humorous twist. An incident at an art museum wipes out all of its masterpieces just before it's about to have its grand opening. There's no time to bring in an expert. Whoever is on-hand that can fix them has to step up, and that 'whoever' is... you!

Yes, it falls to you to paint back each and every lost piece of art, square by square in a picture crossword. Luckily, you're not entirely on your own. Not only do you have the extremely helpful title of each piece to guide you, you'll also be given all of the clues you need to decide which squares should be painted and which should be left alone. Apply a little logic and paint and the museum will be ready to go in no time.

The works range from tiny 5 x 5 grids all the way up to gargantuan 40 x 36 monsters. A total of 150 puzzles are grouped into 15 different galleries, each with its own unique theme. Multiple difficulty levels allow even a learning player to tackle the larger works. With intuitive touch-to-paint controls, anyone can become a master artist with just one finger. Finished all the puzzles? Challenge the Mystery Masterpiece mode and see how far you can get with a bare minimum of clues.

Classic Puzzles: Use the clues and a bit of logical deduction to decide which squares to paint and which to leave blank!

Restore the Art: With little more than an assortment of bizarre titles to go on, you have to paint back an entire museum full of lost works!

Piles of Paintings: With 15 different themed galleries and 150 puzzles, your artistic duties won't be finished anytime soon!

Multiple Sizes: Got a few minutes to spare? Try out a 5 x 5 puzzle. Got a few hours? Grid sizes go up to 40 x 36 squares!

Mystery Masterpiece Mode: Can't decide on a puzzle? Take the Mystery Masterpiece mode for a spin and see if you can paint back a randomly-selected picture!

Yes, it sucks that this game requires a subscription, this review will focus on the game though. I'm quite enjoying this game so far as a big fan of nonograms/picross. I love that there is no timers or mistake punishments by default. I also love that you can play in portrait or landscape. I wish squares you were highlighting were locked to the column/row you are trying to fill until you lift your finger. I also wish the game could be locked to portrait or landscape to stop accidental switches.

This game used to have a "hey, pay us 5 bucks once and you'll have the whole game without ads" option, which I respected and paid for because I had so much fun, it was worth the fee. I had it on my old iPhone and I re-downloaded it today to play again since I enjoyed it so much the first time. Now it wants you to sign up to a subscription service in order to get past the second room. Even if the first month is free, that's ridiculous. I can't recommend this anymore. :(

I used to have this game on my iPad. Simple 2 dollar purchase for an enjoyable game. But now after 16 easy puzzles, you need to pay 5 dollars a month, for some stupid game subscription with a load of games I don't want. Is it that hard to just make it so you pay for this game and nothing else? Honestly sad what greed of a company can do to a good game.
