Hello world! The new version of Crucipixel Deluxe is now available!
I have created a sort of Picross player (dunno if you ever heard about the DS game), that allows to complete the schemes either by playing them on the pc, or by printing them and solving them on paper. The current available version is 2.2:
If you have never heard about the Picross game (I found out it has many names, such as Picross, Griddler, Crucipixel, but Picross is the official one since it is used in the DS game) you should try this tutorial to get started(you may find my game very hard in that case):
Since in my game the puzzle are colored, I have added another rule: groups with the same color MUST have an empty space between, while groups of different colors don't have to.
A bit of gameplay spoiler:

Current features (2.2 version):
-All puzzles have solution 47 puzzles have been inserted officially in the game and they all have unique solution. Old puzzles have been moved to the tests folder.
-Customized Windowskin If you modify the content of the Skin folder, by adding or removing skins, the program will automatically load them. The skins in the folder must be named Windowskin0, Windowskin1, Windowskin2, etc... Otherwise the program will not load them.
-Customized Challenge If you wish to add your own challenges, just modify the content of the Tests folder, by adding or removing your own schemes. The names of the files must be Test0, Test1, Test2, Test3, etc... In order to be loaded correctly the file must be a PNG image with a transparent background.
-Save & Load Feature If you wish to save your progress you can press F6 in the selection menu. Now you will be asked to save even when you leave the game. Now files are more recognizable since they show some of the solved puzzles.
-New Puzzle Menu When solving a puzzle, you can press undo to open the menu. You can either reset or complete the puzzle, save or take a screenshot of the puzzle.
-Screenshot Feature If you wish to play on paper, or you wish just to take a photo of the solved puzzle, just press the proper button, and it will save a PNG of the whole scene in the main folder. (If you want to play on paper you shall reset it before taking a screenshot).
-Zoom Feature Now you can Zoom in and out the puzzle just by pressing Ctrl+Z or X.
-Settings Feature You can customize the window resolution ( from 640x480 to 1280x800) and the default puzzle zoom.
-Animated Background Feature In the title screen the background changes when time changes. You can also choose it by pressing Z.
Thanks for caring about
