PixelBoom! ($0.99)

PixelBoom!

"PixelBoom! is a new kind of picross- or nonogram-puzzle game, with over 60 levels in 4 degrees of difficulty. The game features two kind of level types: One is time based and the other one has a limited number of permitted false attempts. No matter what, if you fail, the level will go "Boom", so you have to act smart. The objective of each level is to uncover an image in a grid of squares, which in PixelBoom! are called "pixels". There are pixels contributing to the final image and pixels, which must be transparent. It is your goal to deduce which are the contributing and which are the transparent ones. Digits, which are attached to the grid, will tell you the number of consecutive contributing pixels in each row and in each column. Combining these numbers is the key to solving the level."

"To ease the challenge, there a three different kind of powerful tools you may unleash:"

1) The Hourglass: Increase your time or the number of permitted false attempts
2) The Hint: Solves a randomly chosen pixel, which contributes to the final image
3) The Focus: Reduces the playing field and lets you focus on solving a smaller area first

"To use one of these tools, you will need energy, which is earned by uncovering the transparent pixels. It may not be necessary to uncover those to solve the level, but it will help you uncovering the others."
