おはよう~

I was hoping someone might be able to help me with something: I bought the game in the title a loooong time ago, but now I've gotten to a puzzle that seems to have a bug in it. On the むずかしい difficulty level, puzzle 103 (in color), It seems like a have the right answer, but when I click the complete button, it says there's a mistake. Would anyone who speaks good japanese be able to help me search for information about this online? My japanese is a bit limited and the searches I did weren't very helpful.

どうもありがとう!

Well, for starters here is the actual name so that you and others can do a proper google search. ;)

パズルメイトお絵かきメイト

(Or even more correctly: パズルメイトDS お絵かきメイト )

Unfortunately beyond that I can't be of any real help. :sweatdrop: ごめんなさい

I just got suspicious when I first read it... and then when I tried to google it and got zero results I was pretty sure... so I changed them and it worked. :P I don't want to mislead anyone into thinking I really know what I'm talking about. ;) I'm just an eternal newbie. :colonthree:

Color picross, huh. It seems much more likely that you just made a single mistake on one of the rows and haven't spotted it... >_< Check, check, and check again. :/

I tried Googling for puzzle solutions but couldn't find anything. :/

The key word for this kind of search is normally 攻略.
It means "capture" or "conquer" ("gain dominance over", "master").
A 攻略法 is "a method for how to capture/master/conquer/beat something".
攻略本 and 攻略ガイド mean "strategy guide".
A 攻略wiki is a basically a FAQ/walkthrough in wiki form.
etc.

It doesn't look like anyone's made one for that game, though.

Thanks Hyperworm.

Unfortunately, I've checked and rechecked and it's correct in the rows but still telling me there's an error. That's only part of the problem, though. See, there's a mechanism in the game where if you tap on a square that is incorrect, it will put an X there for a second and won't fill it in with the color you are trying to enter. So there's a column in this particular puzzle I'm trying where the smallest number is 2. There's a piece colored in and I tap above it and it gives me the X. I tap below it and it gives me the X also. So there's definitely a problem in the puzzle.

I was hoping maybe there was some kind of errata listed online, since this isn't the first puzzle in the game that's been incorrect, but I don't really know how to search for it :P I don't blame the developers, though, because there are a TON of puzzles in the cartridge so a couple with problems isn't so bad.

Thank you for the help though!
