Thumbs Up Little-Worlds Studios releases "Color Cross"


Color Cross is a picross-like puzzle game, with the neat twist of having to form colored pictures.
Its available for PC, DS and iPhone.
A 1-hour demo of the PC version is available here;
(And I have written a short review of this color-cross demo here).

You can already buy the DS game for a great price on amazon here;

We urge all members of MBN, and guests viewing this site to please check it out, and spread the word. Its a well produced puzzle game, and deserves to help sale so that Little Worlds continues to flourish and be able to support larger projects.

On a related note, Sébastien Viannay also informs us that Parcal Dubois, who formly worked on LBA2 has also joined their team.

Received the game, only played a bit of it. It requires some getting used to, playing with multiple colors.
And is it just me or is the music of low quality? I hear static.

Havnt got the DS version yet, let you know when I do.
(the battery on my DS broke, so I'm getting a replacement first...weirdly, if the battery goes, the screen mess's up)

I did get someone else to buy it, but apparently there's a slight problem for colour blind people.

Thanks. Indeed a great price, but I never by on Amazon, only on eBay. It seams will be the first time. Bad thing, they don't work with paypal.

Its strange how the same company sells at this price on Amazon and on eBay its more 6£.

So, those you guys recommend this game?
I'm currently playing Secret Files Tagunska and just bought Hotel Dusk - Room 215. Is there any other game for DS that really deserves to play?

Because amazon sales real games 100%, a lot on ebay will be knock-offs.

Allthough in this case, the price difference isnt much.

Soul Bubbles! Soul Bubbles Soul Bubbles (and not just to see Fredric Raynals credit :P)

But, given your existing DS games that suggests Another Code might also be up your streat. A bit short though (The Wii one is great too, but thankfully longer.)

Yeah, soul bubbles is a must indeed. Was my first game (and only for a while) for DS. I just finished few weeks ago, after a huge time without playing it (because back than, I got bored). Still need to unlock one of the bonus features.

Another Code will be difficult to get and really expensive this days.

Professor Layton seams really interesting.

Do you think Broken Sword will be a great add on to DS, or its just better to keep with the PC version or ScummVM version?

Thanks for you tips

Not sure of the DS version, but the GBA version was buggy as hell. Kept all the original bugs, and added a lot more of its own :P Half the time the charecter sprite was just a white shadow :P
I'm sure the DS version will be better though.

Tunguska 2 (or rather Secret Files 2) is coming out sometime as well.

-goes check another code-

Your right, that is hard to get -_-
Im supprised they havnt done another batch of the ds game now the wii one is out.
Oh, well, your not missing that much. Its a great game, but just 6 hours or so.

Another DS game worth getting is Zelda:Phantom Hourglass.
Has its flaws, but it fixs a lot of the problems of Wind Waker too. Nice and long too.

Nice selection.
Dont forget Scribblenauts when it comes out, that looks insanely fun.
