Frequently Asked Questions


What is Falcross? Falcross is a picross (or "nonogram") puzzle game where you use numerical clues and logic to uncover a hidden image. Falcross has the biggest collection of picross puzzles in the world (over 100k) due to its unique puzzle creator and online publishing features. Thousands of users create and publish puzzles with beautiful pixel art every single day!

How do I play? It's easy to learn! Graybeard Games has created a simple 2-minute video tutorial that explains how picross/nonogram puzzles work. The best way to learn is to start with easy 5x5 puzzles and learn by trial and error.

Where can I download the game? Falcross is available on the App Store and Google Play. There is currently no web version.

What does the star counter in the top left of the screen mean? This is simply a count of all of the stars you've earned by solving puzzles. There will soon be a stars leaderboard so you can see how you compare to your friends and the larger community.


How are stars calculated? Stars are awarded based on how fast you solve a puzzle compared to its average solve time. Mistakes do NOT have any bearing on the amount of stars you earn.

Where can I find larger puzzles? You can play puzzles up to size 20x20 on a phone and 25x25 on a tablet. 25x25 puzzles will not show up in puzzle packs or in an artist's profiles on a phone.
