Lightwood Games have released a patch update for Pic-a-pix Deluxe to bring it to version 1.10 and brings with it, several user-requested enhancements.
Most importantly is the colour blind mode which adds the option to adjust game palettes depending on the type of colour blindness of the user. This was requested due to an number of users not being able to distinguish some of the colour combinations in puzzles. The default colour blind schemes should be distinguishable to most colour blind users but they can be individually adjusted if required.
Here is the full list of features courtesy of LightWood Games:
The major addition in this version is a new colour blind mode. Having learned that some colour combinations used in the game’s puzzles were not distinguishable for users with certain types of colour blindness, Lightwood has added the option to adjust the game’s palette. The default alternate colour scheme should work for the majority of colour blind users, but it is possible to further adjust each palette colour individually if necessary.
Another new feature is the ability to add temporary marks while solving the puzzle.
The updated game also improves the clue marking logic, and eliminates some occasional slowness which had been reported on the largest puzzle sizes.
At the same time, a new demo based on the same version of the game has been released on Nintendo eShop. It contains 12 new puzzles and can be installed alongside the first demo without erasing it.
Lightwood continues to support Pic-a-Pix Deluxe by releasing regular DLC puzzle packs.
Classic Pack 2 was released last week, with 60 brand new black-and-white puzzles. These are classic picross puzzles and the pack includes the challenging 35×25 size, which is only available in Pic-a-Pix Deluxe!
Small Puzzles 2, Large Puzzles 2 and Mixed Puzzles 2 will be released on February 15th, adding more colour puzzles in a choice of sizes.
