Los Angeles, 1996. Honor Mizrahi was just an actress on a hit TV detective show. But when her boss ends up dead just minutes after he fires her, she finds herself starring in her own murder mystery.

A nice nonogram game with a good story!
I have had this game for a while but never opened it. I finally cracked it open a week ago, and I'm really enjoying it. The game takes place in the 90s, which definitely has a retro charm to it in and of itself, and the story surrounding doing the nonograms is pretty fun and interesting! The controls are easy to use. There is also some interrogating of suspects, sort of like Phoenix Wright, but it's not overly difficult because if you choose an incorrect response when laying out your suspicions, you can keep choosing until you pick the right answer. I highly recommend it!

I have never played picross before, but I found it fairly easy to learn. Once you figure it out, it can be pretty addicting. Story has some nice twists and the characters are vibrant and quickly grow on you.

Murder by Numbers Review
I must admit I haven’t finished the game yet, but from what I’ve played I think it’s a fun little game and is best played in short bursts, for a picross title it sure has a lot going on with murder mystery and characters interactions, playing like a detective visual novel with picross puzzles every now and then, however, depending on the person this could be a hit or miss since some people may not have the patience or not be interested in the story and just wanna play picross in which case look elsewhere, it’s definitely not for everyone but for me personally it doesn’t bother me as I quite enjoy the cutscenes.

The picross puzzles, however, are a tad on the easy side imo, it could be because my introduction to picross was with a harder game, either way, I recommend it if you’re into picross and like story driven visual novels or detective games, otherwise this game may not be for you.

Murder Mystery with Picross
I had no Picross experience before ordering this gamre, so I went online to learn how to play. The game itself gives you just the bare basics on how to do a picross puzzle, so I suggest doing a little research into Picross solving strategies so you can underatand how to solve these puzzles, because the puzzle difficulty can ramp up fairly quickly (by the end of the first episode, you're already expended to solve 10X15 puzzles with fee clues). There are plenty of free online or phone apps you can find to try a few Picross puzzles. Learning strategies improves your ranking, which, at the least, opens up more puzzles from SCOUT's memories, which I assume will lead to a full revelation of it's backstory. The writing of the game has its funny moments. It may remind folks of the Phoenix Wright games because of quirky characters, but with a more mature language (and immature humor). It has been an enjoyable adventure.

Picross with a twist!
I never liked Picross games until I tried it on the SNES Online for the Switch. Now I'm addicted. Thanks to Playasia, I now have a physical version to enjoy. This game is so freaking good. The mysteries you solve by doing these fun and ingenious puzzles, makes this a delight to play.
