How will the DLC work with the physical Cartridge version (which I'm tempted to buy)?

The DLC loads by pressing L on the title screen which will search for the correct file on a disk in drive 8. The cartridge will also auto-save your progress in a different slot on the cartridge so you can play both sets of levels together if required.

Thanks!

Great game Carleton, I've never managed to get my head round picross before but your tutorial and intro levels got me to finally get it...thanks for the game I know I'm going to love it.

Thanks Stoic. Picross is a little confusing at first but great once it clicks. I’m glad GP could finally get you in to it. Great avatar as well, Bubble Bobble is one of the finest games ever.

An quite interesting game! I already very much enjoyed your brillant Millie Molly and Grid Pix is another very fine game for my "little grey cells". Works perfectly on Vice, but I'll enjoy it on my TheC64 Maxi this evening. :)

Thanks for supporting it. And thanks for the kind words. It is fun coding for the C64.

Two days later I have to add: Grid Pix is extremely addictive for me. And I think this game would be a perfect solo-boardgame. I'm actually pondering about making such an "offline version" with cardboard and wooden cubes. A wonderful game, very entertaining and there are always some minutes time to solve another puzzle! I look forward to the DLCs. :)

great to hear. You can buy paperback book versions of this style of puzzle. The one I had called it Hanse but it was the same idea.

Ah I see, nonograms they are called. I ordered a book. Grid Pix works flawlessly on my TheC64 Maxi by the way.
