Fill-in-the-grid puzzler like Picross 3-D, but far simpler.

Animal Color Cross is a fun brainteaser of a puzzle game, a bit more challenging (and more interesting) than the original Picross, but not nearly as mind-melting as Picross 3-D. Solving these puzzles offers a decent mental workout, but shouldn't cause too much frustration. The biggest flaw in the game is that some of the puzzles, even once you've solved them, will still remain a mystery. Several of the animal pictures are so vague, you'll have a hard time telling what creatures they're supposed to be. So, while the art's not always great, the game is still fun.
