FAPs are my favorite of the picture puzzles here and I was happy to find this new twist at http://krispixton.com/PrismaPix/. The puzzles are multilayered and the finished product is a photograph.

I'm going to try the demo to this one. I also see they have one for lap lovers http://krispixton.com/PathPix/ and one for the maze and jigsaw maniacs http://krispixton.com/LOOPical/ plus others.

I'll be trying these too. Thanks emach.

I tried the FAPS-interesting! The idea of the multilayered puzzle is great. Still when you solve the conceptis puzzles you make the picture-here you only get a general color...but it's nice. I saw there other puzzles including "link a pix" and others-I'll check them too. Thanks for the link

I'm very happy to share my find of the website.

Shiron brings up an interesting point. It's true you don't get a picture the same way, but you still are 'rewarded' with a picture for finishing. Since delving more into the Nikoli puzzles such as Heyewake and Masyu (which don't make pictures) the picture has become for me secondary to the fun in solving the puzzle. I usually prefer doing puzzles on paper rather than computer, but I just don't get tired of doing FAPs any way they come.

I've been playing with the prismapix-I really enjoy it. I think it can also be used as a kind of "tutorial" for those who want to learn and improve their skills in advanced logic. This is what I suggest: Play in the hard level. When you don't see the next step (but their is still what to do in that colour), instead of searching for other clue in other colour (that's easier) use a hint. It shows you where the next step is and then you learn the strategy. Go on until there is nothing to do in that colour and then switch colours. At first I thought that using the hint is like "cheating" but actually you can use it to learn. Now I find myself solving without hints better than before, that means there's been a process of learning.
I hope you'll enjoy and learn as I did!
Shiron.
