What are we doing?

Hi treasure hunters, maybe it could look like we are a bit off but thats far from being true. We are constantly pushing updates with fixes and upgrades to the stores. Also, if you have manage to progress a lot in the game maybe you have found some puzzles that appears as locked. This puzzles are puzzles that havent been checked so we dont know if they have enought clues to be solved perfectly, but dont worry, cause we are working on them, and you dont need a new version to play the checked puzzles, as far as we check them we push them to the game over internet!

Just to make you an idea of how much work we need to do yet, we are lacking 10 buildings puzzles from the main progression and 9 event buildings puzzles, this is near 800 puzzles to be checked yet! But we are on it!

After we finish the checking we will make a little stop on Puzzle Cross and we will work in our new game! But dont worry, new Puzzle Cross content is being conceptually being designed for the future version 6, but it will take sometime to be ready 🙂

Kukoo Kitchen 80% discount week

Our game Kukoo Kitchen has an 80% discount offer during this week on steam! Check it before the offer ends!!

Multilanguage version & info

The latest version available is the multi language version, the version is now ready on android and its being in process in Kindle and iOs.

The old players knows we have been working full steam on the game releasing almost daily versions with fixes and performance boosts. We want to slowdown a bit the ratio of new versions so instead of daily versions we would like to start releasing system versions only once a week.

The idea behind this is to have more time to focus on the remaining puzzles that lacks to be reviewed, we have tones of puzzles yet to be unlocked and we want to boost this from now on.

State of the game and Kindle Fire

We have released recently the v5 of Puzzle Cross Pirates on Kindle Fire devices! Also we have been updating the game in order to fix several pesky bugs so if you are playing our game you would probably notice we are updating it a lot.

In the near fuure we want to target the following points:

  • Localization to Japanese, German, Spanish and French
  • Unlock all the puzzles in the game. Right now we have lots of puzzles locked pending to be reviewed so there are no 50/50 situations
  • Progress bar performance, the game takes a little bit more than expected to be loaded
  • Iphone 6 crash after picking gold

Version 5.1 released on iOs and Android

We have released the version 5.1 in IOs and Android, this version has all the uis prepared for high end devices like XR, X or XS, and Android devices that has that aspect ration.

Also instead of releasing the 5.0 in iOs we have directly released the 5.1, welcome aboard IOs users!

One of the most interesting things we have added is more background for the city screen as you can see on this image

Right now we are working on a version 5.11 that will have several bugs fixed and the Kindle Fire version. Also we will unlock new puzzles in the following week.

Version 5 released on Android

Hi friends, we have finally released the version 5 on android, we are using this release as a soft launch so some puzzles are not ready yet and we are still fixing some stuff, iOs version will arribe as soon as we are confident with the balancing and the features of the version.

For the moment its looking good, some misunderstandings with old players but overall we are liking the first day numbers, we will wait at least one week to make the decision. Many thanks and if you have any feedback please tell us!

Dev Blog #3 – Pic Improvements

We are still developing the version 5 of the game that will be released at the end of this month, and during this 2 weeks we are still testing the game and fixing bugs. Please consider we have re-code this version from scratch in a new system so thats the main reason its taking so long to be tested.

During these weeks we have made some important changes the picross gameplay as well, the first of all is the removal of the precision mode. After a long time of condieration we have decided this mode doesnt fit with the mobile gaming standards and we have decided to remove it from the game.

But, as the 15×15 puzzles have very small tiles we needed to provide replacement for it, so what we have done, is the inclusion of a zoom in and zoom out mechanic by pinching the fingers and the result its pretty cool.

Also in the new late game, there were lots of 15×15 picross, we have decided to replace them with 10×15 picross cause it fits way better with the portrait screen of the phones plus we think its way more rewarding.

New website!

Yeah, we have changed again the website for a more professional one, we hope you like it. This website is faster, and more interesting than the previous one. Also we will add some modifications to it in the near future to improve it even more. Thanks!

Dev Log #2 – New puzzles

As you know if you have been following the news regarding the Puzzle Cross Pirates version 5, we are going to include lots of new puzzles. More than 1500!

These puzzles are not going to use currency if you find the treasure, only errors are going to be penalized.

In order to make this puzzles, and taking into account this ones are not going to have a drawing attached as the rest of the puzzles, we wanted to have not good, but EXCELENT pixel art quallity, so you are going to compose really nice drawings by solving them. 

In order to achieve that the artist @2bitCrook has been the one that has made it, here are some of the amazing puzzles he has done for the game!

Dev Log – #1

We are still working on the version 5.0 of the game, its very close to be finished, we are planing on making the first beta tests during the next week.

We want to remember you that the game is being recoded from scratch in a new and more stable system which will fix some of the bugs we have.

Lots of interfaces are going to be modified

In this gallery you can see:

– A modified version of the hold, now each event will unlock free buildings to add them in the city map

– The new kind of picross, you will need to solve 4 picross which will compose a huge pixel art, you will need to solve them without leaving the puzzle screen, and only mistakes will cost currency that will be chickens.

– The builder interface will show you what are the buildings you can build currently and how many puzzles the building requires to be built

Also no worries, you will be able to get free chickens every day when you build the farm (which is the second building of the list to be built) 😉

Another interesting thing is that now the bombs will be generated by the pirates houses, you will be able to upgrade the pirate houses to get a bit more bombs, or make purchases in order to unlock the building of new pirate houses.

And thats all for now, i will try to keep you posted weekly with the final updates of our projects 🙂
