Gitcross is a new variation on Picross that includes collecting github users' identicons, and seeing other players do the same in real-time.
Gitcross is a new variation on Picross (aka Nonogram), an addictive logic game from Japan. Each puzzle is made up of one or more GitHub Identicons from some of our favorite GitHub users. Complete puzzles to unlock them as trophies!
Note on the right sidebar you can see other players playing gitcross at the same time. If you mouseover them, you can see their current selection of trophies. The list of other users and their trophies are updated in real-time.
Just solve the picross puzzle. Checkout wikipedia to learn how to play: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Nonogram
Use logic to figure out which pixels to click on and turn grey. Right-click a pixel to flag it as a space.
Once you solve the puzzle, your trophy case will now contain the identicons used to create the puzzle.
You can select the game's difficulty by click the down arrow next to "New Game". The harder the puzzle, the more identicons you unlock at a time.
Drywall, Bootstrap, Font Awesome, AngularJS, Github (identicons), GoInstant.

Thanks so much. Yes we could have made it easier to understand without linking out to Wikipedia.
Thanks. Yes we had planned a head to head race.
Thanks for the review. We primarily used node to parse the GitHub identicon PNGs and turn them into puzzle arrays. We came up with the idea only a couple days before the competition.
Your scoring strikes me as really damn harsh.
I don't know if you noticed, but we generate the puzzles server side, in Nodejs, and are using the hackathon sponsored real-time service GoInstant to show the currently playing players and their progress, all synced in real-time. Are you saying that any app that depends on this service deserves 1 star across the board?
Hi Jon. I'm sorry for you. I don't understand, I would like put a better score as your game deserves it, but I cant. don't know why ? may be a mouse virus? oh, and your friend Reza could have the same problem 'cause he gave me a 1/1/1/1 just before. Anyway thanks for your explaination about your Nodejs usage.
I finally managed to kill that silly mouse and to find a more docile. The problem has been short-lived.
You sir are a gentleman.
It's got a responsive layout, it works decently well on mobile web browsers. Give it a shot!
I totally agree. We had a lot of grandiose plans.
Glad to hear you enjoyed it.
I agree. We mentioned the connection in the above the board and in the empty trophy case. Thanks for the feedback.
Yes. That was the plan. :)
