About this game

Paint squares and fill regions as you solve the puzzle and discover a beautiful pixel-art picture! Each puzzle consists of a blank grid, divided into various regions, with clues to the left of every row and at the top of every column. The object is to reveal a hidden picture by painting squares and filling blocks according to the rules.

Cross-a-Pix are exciting logic puzzles that form whimsical pixel-art pictures when solved. Challenging, deductive and artistic, these puzzles offer the ultimate mix of logic, art and fun while providing solvers with many hours of mentally stimulating entertainment.

The game features a unique fingertip cursor which enables playing large puzzle grids with ease and precision: to fill a square, move cursor to the desired location and tap anywhere on the screen. The square, as well as all other squares belonging to the same region, will fill in automatically.

To help see the puzzle progress, graphic previews in the puzzle list show the progress of all puzzles in a volume as they are being solved. A Gallery view option provides these previews in a larger format.

For more fun, Cross-a-Pix contains no ads and includes a Weekly Bonus section providing an extra free puzzle each week.

These are addicting but I'm having an extremely difficult time getting past even the "easy" levels. The "tutorial" given provides little to no explanation as to why the lines were filled the way they were, and with the tips I WAS given, I still get stuck on an "easy" puzzle for literally over an hour to the point where I just give up and go to the next, only to find the next one even more difficult. Please at least provide a "hint" feature!

This game is great! Just like all the other games I have from conceptus, the mechanics are both interesting & helpful (once you get the hang of it). I do wish they had more options in the settings, like a contrash/color mode will help tell things apart in the puzzle, like when it's dual clue. and they go there other games I sit and wait for the weekly challenge puzzle to come out, I do wish they had daily challenge puzzles but I do know that they have a lot of awesome games to maintain.

Absolutely love this game, but after taking a break and coming back to it, I'm getting weird lag in the cursor, especially when travelling while my husband drives. I have all permissions blocked, so I'm not sure what's causing it.

Please send us an email to so we can ask you for more information to solve the problem. In the meanwhile you can disable the cursor in Settings if you find it convenient to play this way. You can also try closing all apps on the device in case there is some other app causing problems in the background.
