Picross DS hits streets next week

300 grids of awesome, brain-frying, block drawings to chisel through

Respect Picross DS. We know it looks dull but this simple-looking puzzle game is so addictive it will take over your DS-playing life for months, and it's out next Friday, May 11.

It's tough to explain, but the idea is that the grid stages conceal a hidden picture and, using the numbers around the outside of the grid, you have to figure out which blocks to chisel away to reveal the picture. And it's HARD AS NAILS.

Old-school Nintendo fans may remember the original, Mario Picross, which was released on Game Boy in 1995, and is one of our favourite GB games of all time.

Look out for Picross DS on shelves next Friday for £29.99.
