Title
it’s ok for what it is, but it’s kind of a pain to play without the qol enhancements of modern picross games. i dig (pun) the archaeology angle of the game’s aesthetic and the music is rly good, wish there was more mario in this mario picross game tho. it also bugs me that u have to play the insanely easy levels to unlock everything else, and by the time u get to the actual fun big puzzles there’s only a handful of them. ah well, at least i didn’t waste money on the game haha. not horrible by any means but def feels kinda pointless to play these days

also this is just a personal preference thing, but god how do ppl play picross games on a tv. the absolute strain … my eyes hurt so bad rn

Title
Mario's Super Picross is a nonogram game with Mario-themed menus, available through Nintendo Switch Online's service in its original Japanese locale. If you know how to solve nonograms, though, there's no language barrier—just a small cultural one on a few of the puzzles, perhaps. See, only the menus really have anything to do with Mario, and even then it almost has the same gunky bootleg-esque visuals as the edutainment Mario games that Interplay and The Software Toolworks were developing around that time. Once you're actually doing the puzzles, all of that Mario stuff falls away in favor of a brown, serious, rigid, and somewhat scholastic aesthetic. Even the music reflects the change, preferring an anxious "test-taking" kind of tune over the kind of upbeat and melodic stuff we associate with our silly plumber friend. The puzzles themselves are fine, as it's hard to really screw up nonograms, but it's a shame just how limited the theming really is here.

 It's also missing a lot of the modern quality of life conveniences that come with more recent games in Jupiter's Picross series: you won't find advanced technique tutorials, count assistance, or the ability to mark spaces with circles—just crosses. Because of that, and also because players will need to know some tricks in later levels that the game doesn't outright teach, I wouldn't recommend this as someone's first Picross game (despite the puzzles appearing to skew to the easier side overall). Still, there's really nothing wrong with this one, and I'd recommend it to fans of the series who haven't picked it up yet—provided they aren't too married to the sleek Y2K aesthetic of Jupiter's recent output.
