Earlier this week, Lightwood Games revealed their next Nintendo Switch game: Fill-a-Pix Deluxe. It’s an enhanced version of the game, featuring 120 puzzles (including new puzzles not previously included in the Nintendo 3DS version). It’s playable in English, French, German and Spanish. It’s available for pre-purchase, and costs 7.99€ / $7.99 / £5.99 / CAD $9.99 / AUD $9.99.
If you’re interested, you can try out the demo: it’s available right now on the Nintendo eShop, worldwide!
Here’s all you need to know about the game:
Fill-a-Pix: Phil’s Epic Adventure is the newest picture logic puzzle from the makers of Pic-a-Pix Deluxe, the popular full-colour picross game which was released earlier this year.
Developed by Lightwood Games and featuring puzzles by Conceptis, it introduces a brand new style – and scale – of picture puzzle to Nintendo Switch users.
The game’s narrator, Phil, invites players to assist him in developing photographs taken on his travel adventures. His not-so-instant camera has captured pictures in the form of logic puzzles!
The solutions are stunning pixel-art photos from around the world, ranging from small introductory pictures to massive landscapes with more than 6,000 pixels to fill in!
Often described as a mix of minesweeper and picross, Fill-a-Pix has only one rule. Each clue number shows how many squares in a block of nine – the clue itself, plus the eight squares around it – should be filled in black.
A full interactive tutorial is also included to make sure players understand all the techniques needed to get stuck in. The unique Smart Cursor feature makes playing fluid and satisfying. Options to guide you towards the next move and to check your progress so far mean you’ll never get stuck.
Finally, here’s some screenshots:

Hollow Knight has been a long time coming (it was originally announced for the Wii U, then moved to the Nintendo Switch), but it looks like it was definitely worth it for players… but also the developers! Despite the PC version being available for a long time, the Nintendo Switch version sold no less than 250 000 units in just two weeks!
A really impressive performance, that adds Hollow Knight to the ever-growing list of indies successes on Nintendo Switch.

The majority of the game's development right now is cohesively melding the story, missions, gameplay & humor, and nailing the pacing & flow. Post-launch patches could fix potential bugs or add features, but wouldn't be ideal for the game's core. Thus, "when it's ready" :) pic.twitter.com/NteMC427tG
