Piczle Lines DX

Today, a new downloadable game was announced for the Nintendo Switch: Piczle Lines DX (with Piczle standing for Picture Puzzle). It was originally released on smartphones in February, but it’s getting the DX treatment on Nintendo Switch this Summer.

It’s a puzzle game where your goal is to connect lines, in order to create pictures. Of course, said lines need to be of a certain length, indicated by numbers on the grid, and you also need to match the colour of the numbers. In short, you cannot connect lines if 1) it’s between two different numbers 2) the line isn’t long enough (3 cases when connecting two 4s, for example), 3) the two numbers are of a different colour.

Piczle Lines DX offers various game modes, including a Story Mode, Puzzle Mode, Giant Mode (with… well… Giant Puzzles!), and more. There’s over 300 puzzles to complete in the game, along with some Trophies to collect. Naturally, the first puzzles are pretty simple and straightforward, but things become much more complex as you progress through the game. 

Here’s details about the two main modes:

  • Story Mode: 5 chapters and 100 puzzles to go through. The story follows the adventures of a slightly unusual professor turning objects into pixels using his Piczle-Matic 3000 camera;
  • Puzzle Mode: 100 puzzles for you to solve. The puzzles come in themed packs, including 20 puzzles each. There’s various themes: sports, pets, vehicles, foods, and more. What’s more, it looks like additional puzzles will be added at a later date, via free updates!

Piczle Lines can be played via the touchscreen in Handheld Mode, but also using the Joy-Cons on TV and Tabletop Mode.

Finally, here’s the debut trailer and some screenshots for Piczle Lines:
