The presentation is relatively barebones, which is fine as it is a good conduit to drive you to all of the 96 puzzles (each containing three puzzles, so technically the count is 288). Depixtion is not the best Picross or nonogram game I've ever played, but after checking out some dreadful examples on the Switch recently, I'm thankful when I can romp my way through a new one that is satisfying and fun. Depixtion does both in spades.
While Depixtion still has nothing that drastically makes it better or worse than any other picross game out there, it definitely is one of the more polished ones, and in my opinion, it’s the best picross on Switch that wasn’t made by Jupiter. There isn’t really any bonus modes or anything to really note, just 96 well-made puzzles that work great with the presentation. For the typical $8, that’s all you really need if you want to stick to a good formula.
