Arizona Rose and the Pirates' Riddles
it was ok....
i like these sort of games but i just wish they would come out with bigger grids.
i did the one hour trial and didn't come across anything bigger than a 15 by 10.
i find it a bit frustrating to repeatedly do the same size over and over, i mean, where's the challenge?
on the plus side the controls seem very intuitive and it plays well with occasional hidden object scenes between islands.
i'd probably buy it on sale but not otherwise unless i knew it did have some larger grids.

Nice change of pace, if somewhat repetitive
My primary complaint is that it there is no way to skip the opening scene.
I can't really add much to what others have said. It's an older game, so doesn't have the bells and whistles. The graphics are a bit grainy. But it's a nice way to pass an afternoon, especially if you enjoy picross -- or you're tired of chasing ghosts and mad men.

GOOD GAME IF YOU LIKE THIS TYPE
Graphics are rather nice, as is the story - although I don't see how a story makes much sense in this type of game. Music was a little too uppy for my mood when I played. Like that there are a few HOS thrown in now and then ? although they were always gray in the tray. Didn?t like that it finished the puzzle for you once you got all the correct tiles turned ? I prefer to turn them myself. If you don?t have one of these games, you might want this one. I have a couple and that?s enough for me, as I no longer find them very challenging.

Repetitive and tedious
This game has 1 key puzzle 'picross' that it repeats in what feels like an endless amount of variations. The puzzle is somewhat like sodoku so if you are into that kind of thing then you may find this enjoyable but about half way through I became bored and decided enough was enough. This is the first time I have ever given up on a game.
