Pic-a-Pix Pieces is a graphic puzzle game based on the principles of a puzzle invented by a Japanese graphic artist Nona Ishida, known as "number painting" or Picross. Its producer is an American company POWGI (Puzzle on word games Inc.), which specializes in publishing mobile applications and console titles based on well-known and popular word and number puzzles, such as Sudoku. The developer's games have been released primarily on the hardware platforms of Nintendo and PlayStation.
In Pic-a-Pix Pieces, large illustrations are hidden in a grid of smaller numerical diagrams. The player's task is to paint individual fields of diagrams in such a way that the result is a drawing. The numbers on the top and side edge of the board tell us which elements to select - they tell us how many fields in a given row or column should be filled in in order to solve a particular puzzle. The game consists of a total of three hundred puzzles, the level of complexity of which can be adjusted to individual preferences. Together they make up a total of twenty large drawings.
The production offers a cooperative multiplayer mode, which is designed for up to four people.
Like other POWGI productions, Pic-a-Pix Pieces has a very simple two-dimensional graphic design and an extremely raw soundtrack and music track.
