Complete the hidden picture by drawing rectangular blocks, starting from the clue numbers that show each block's color and size.

How to play

The object of a Picture Block puzzle is to fill the entire grid with colored boxes (blocks) to reveal a picture.

Scattered around the grid are number squares. Touch and drag from one of these squares to start expanding that block. You can touch anywhere inside a block to continue to resize it. (Sometimes it will be necessary to resize the block more than once - for instance where the number clue is in the middle of the intended space for the block, it will need to be stretched out to the edge of the available space in one direction, then again in another direction.)

As you drag to resize a block, a number hint will appear in a circle above your finger that shows the current size of the block in squares. Each block must cover the exact number of squares indicated by the number square. Blocks can't overlap other blocks or number squares.

If you've placed a block in the wrong position, you can double tap the block to erase it.

You can zoom in and out using the touchscreen pinch gesture, and scroll around by touching and dragging from an empty space.

Blocks (enclosed rectangles) are always counted separately from each other. If a larger area of the grid needs to be filled with the same color, each number square must be covered by a block of the size specified by the clue, placed in a position and orientation that allows enough space for the surrounding blocks.

Extra help

If you're stuck on a Picture Block puzzle, you can use coins to buy hints.

Hints can be used by tapping on the relevant icon in the status bar area at the top of the screen.
The cost (in coins) to use each hint is printed under its icon.

■ Suggest a move

Use this hint to automatically draw one block from an unsolved number clue, in the correct location.

■ Check for errors

Use this hint to highlight all incorrect blocks on the board. These can then be erased by double tapping them and placed again in the correct location.

■ Auto Complete Helper

If there is only enough empty space around a number clue for it to have one valid solution, you can save time by using this feature. Simply tap and hold on a number square on the grid and it will be expanded automatically.

If you try to use this feature on a square that is still surrounded by too much free space for there to be one unambiguous solution, you will lose a Life. Lives are indicated in the 🖤 Heart meter at the top of the screen.

If you run out of lives you can continue to play the puzzle but won't be able to use the Auto Complete move. You can purchase more lives for a small coin cost by tapping the 🖤 icon.
