Picross S4 is another installment of the popular puzzle game series. The game is based on the puzzle rules, known as "painting with numbers". The studio Jupiter Corporation is responsible for its development.


The mechanics of the game in Picross S4 is no different from that of the previous parts of the cycle. The player's task is to paint the diagram fields in order to obtain a pixeled image. The number of fields in a given row or column that need to be marked with a given colour is determined by the numbers around the board.

In the game there are four variants of gameplay - Standard Picross, Mega Picross, Color Picross and Clip Picross. In addition, there are also two large 30x30 puzzles, and linking the game to previous versions will guarantee access to an even bigger 40x30 puzzle. In total, we have 485 boards of varying degrees of difficulty.

Game modes

In Picross S4 you can play in single player mode or in a two-player co-op.

Technical aspects

Picross S4, like the previous parts of the cycle, has a minimalist, two-dimensional graphic design. The gameplay is made more attractive by relaxing music.
