Go and play this game. I am serious. I took a look at this game when I was working at Emucamp (which was rare since I hardly ever tested anything), and I had to add the news the next day, because I was so busy playing it. :) My roommate wondered what the hell I was doing, so I sent him the rom and got him hooked, and my friend walked in on the two of us playing it and HE got hooked, and even started making a PC version of his own, which didn’t last very long. Yes, it is that cool. Everyone go play. There’s even an in-game tutorial, so shut up about not knowing how to play.
After 15 short years it’s finally done. A 100% complete translation. It should work on anything that plays the original ROM. Picross 2 is a very fun puzzle game that you should be playing instead of reading this prattling.

Fantastic!Reviewed By: Animation Guru on 07 Apr 2016
Love this game. Been playing it for a while. If you loved the first Mario’s Picross, then this one is even better.
The translation is really smooth, and it feels like a genuine localized port. It even changes the Quick Picross puzzles so that they read in English!
A couple minor translation goofs. When you clear Easy Picross, it says that the puzzles have been “cleated”. Also, one of the Quick Picross puzzles used the word “carps” when it clearly should have been “cards”. Those are the only two goofs I found, though, and they won’t adversely affect your game in any way.
Version 1.0 Recommended - Yes
