Mobile Nonogram / News: Recent posts

All new!

After receiving a nice, friendly letter from a lawyer telling me that Picross is a registered trademark of Nintendo, I had to take down all Mobile Picross content.
Fortunately this was the kick in the butt I needed to update the game and the site.
Now the game is called Mobile Nonogram (which is safe according to that same lawyer) and it features refreshed 240x320 graphics and has touchscreen support :)
The game and the level editor are better than ever now and available for download again.
Unfortunately I can't offer any old versions of the game for legal reasons.
The website will be back soon.

new SVN repository

A Subversion repository for Mobile Picross is now available. It will reflect the progress from Mobile Picross 1.0 to Mobile Picross 2. The initial import features improved looks where System Fonts are used (Instructions and ingame menu) and I began to work on an MIDP 1.0 version.

As I am learning MIDP2 while programming for this project I made a test program to check how I can switch a canvas to fullscreen and how I can access the keys that were pressed
