Loved this game! It is my favourite game on the c64! Needs a sequel. Love it!
Nono Pixie (C64)
A downloadable game
Nono Pixie is a Nonogram Puzzle Game for Commodore 64 with 100 unique puzzles to solve! A Nonogram is a puzzle that tells how many squares are in each row and column of a picture. If there are multiple groups in a column or row this is indicated by multiple numbers for the same column or row. The game is created as an entry for the 2019 RGCD 16kb game cart jam.
This is the final version of Nono Pixie, the cartridge version is the game jam version while the floppy disk version contains additional content. The game can be played in a browser from archive.org: https://archive.org/details/nonopixie

You bought a complete collection of 100 grid pictures, and they have finally arrived after a long time shipping.
Unfortunately it is too late to bring them inside. Nothing to worry about, surely no-one would touch them overnight?
Just in case something happens you carefully write down the number of tiles in each picture's row and column.
Of course, anything valuable never gets left alone. Mischevious pixies are up to no good in the night.
All the tiles have been removed and a massive chore awaits you!
The game should run directly from the .d64 or .crt files, for C64 Mini, copy all the files in the USB folder to your USB drive. Works with NTSC or PAL C64, Vice C64 emulator, EasyFlash, Ultimate2+, Ultimate64, 1541, SD2IEC, Commodore 1351, etc.

Completed all 100 of them this weekend. It's awesome. On the later levels I found myself wishing for a restart puzzle option though, when I messed up.The CLR/HOME button would be a good candidate...
Sounds good, download again and give it a try!
Great version, I really like the convenience features (filling multiple slots to right/down, the position indicator, etc.). However, I missed being able to multi-fill X's. Also, I found that pressing left shift while pulling down the joystick enables me to X squares in the column, but I could not find the key to do that horizontally.
Thanks for giving the game a try! I'm still working to improve joystick controls, which is surprisingly cumbersome compared to mouse and keyboard and I'll look at more ways to improve setting x's :)
What about Fire = mark, Fire + move = mark adjacent cells (in the direction of the move), holding Shift while doing these = mark with X?
Well, I also want the game to work with the c64 mini, so controls need to work with just joystick, and my solution for that is double clicking fire to set X on empty, or ? on filled, keep fire down and move stick to set multiple. For consistence I'll also try to support holding X or V while moving the cursor to set multiple. Turns out left shift + fire is a ghost key, so if any other kb solution causes ghost keys causing other effects I won't be able to...
