Pixel Puzzles: Japan is an indie relaxing game developed by DL Softworks. It is a part of the Pixel Puzzles game series.


In Pixel Puzzles: Japan players will build various puzzles of pictures drawn in Japanese aesthetic. There is a certain degree of interactivity, as building puzzles relax the in-game monk, who will achieve higher consciousness levels. As you progress through the game, the monk will become more and more relaxed, which allows you to attempt to build even bigger puzzles.

There is no lose conditions whatsoever present in the game, as the game does not feature any time limits and it does not punish the players for putting a puzzle piece in a wrong way. However, unlike the real-life puzzles, the puzzle pieces in these game are not square and their form is actually procedurally generated making no playthrough the same. Some of the unarranged puzzle pieces move from time to time to help the players figure out where to put them.

There are 19 puzzles present in the game. Each of them is hand-drawn and has its own difficulty level. The game features puzzles in sizes from 60 to 350 pieces.

As the players build up the puzzles, traditional Japanese music will play in the background. The game features 26 Steam achievements, which are given to the players for completing for completing puzzles.

Pixel Puzzles: Japan reviews and comments

I came across this Game by Accident. I always liked to puzzle as a small Child and since I really Felt like it again, I bought it. This Game was not a Disappointment, as even my Mother had found Favour! The Positives of the Game are clearly the Motives of the Puzzles. Really beautiful Pictures of Japan and Japanese Monuments. The Music was Also very coherent. The Achievements should not have been, because I, as well as so before, had to complete all The Puzzles. The negative is clearly that the Puzzle Pieces move constantly and you need forever to get the right Part. That's made the whole thing a bit confusing. Also the Help of this, if you place a Part in the right Places and it is then firm I found quite nice but you should at least have the Option to turn it on or off. Nevertheless, the Game is absolutely recommended for a Puzzle Fan and it is really Fun, even if a real Puzzle is better. As an Alternative, really a nice Thing!

In this Game, it is difficult to decide which Score to win. Is it a bad Game? No, it's not. However, there are some Weaknesses that I simply cannot overlook, which is why my Assessment Is not too positive in the End. Well, let's get to the Strengths first: There are a total Of 19 different Puzzles with Japanese Motifs. The Pictures are well chosen and also the Degree of difficulty, so the Amount of Parts gradually increases. There is also a Kind of Help System with which you can uncover the Picture for a short Time after some Time. Even priced, there's nothing to complain about: The Game costs £6.99, I ended up having an 11-hour game time together. It is also nice that you can play this Game quite easily 100%. You just have to solve all The Puzzles (and do two Gimmicks with the Koi) to get to the 100%. So If you want to have a 100% Game on Steam, you can also have a quiet access here. Unfortunately, there are also some negative Aspects that it goes into account: The biggest Shortcoming in this Game is, in my View, the missing Javelin System. You have to finish a Started puzzle, progress is not saved. The bigger the Puzzles get, the more annoying this Circumstance becomes. In the last Puzzle with 350 Pieces, I needed three Attempts, because I just didn't get done with the others (and had to do something else). Another annoying Point is that the Puzzles swim in a Kind of Water. They do not stay in one Place, but are always on the Move. Also, it often happens that you click on the wrong Part, which later just annoys. There is no Field where you can sort the Parts, you have to do this in the middle of the Picture. All in All, I would say that you can buy the Game if you like Puzzles quietly in the Sale. However, because of the Shortcomings, I simply cannot give a positive Rating. Pro:-Beautiful Japanese Motifs-For The Price long playing time-increasing difficulty-Easy to bring it to 100%-Trading Cards Contra-No Intermediate storage-Often Wrong parts are picked up-No free Area to Sort-Puzzle pieces are constantly in Movement
