Mario’s Picross Cheats & Cheat Codes for Game Boy.

Mario’s Picross Summary

Is there anything this plumber can’t do? No, really, what can’t he do? I’m legitimately asking.

Well, as it turns out, picross is one of the many, many things that red-garbed plumber can do. Mario’s Picross, first released on the Gameboy in 1994, Mario Picross has 256 puzzles to complete! That’s quite a number! Sadly, the game didn’t do too well in English-speaking regions, and as a result, the game’s sequels were only ever published in Japan.

Super Gameboy Border Changes

If you’re playing Mario’s Picross with the Super Gameboy, you can change the color of the border (the one that loads with the game). This can be done if you hold the Control Pad in a specific direction when you press Start. Here, I’ll list what buttons you must hold to make the border a certain color:

Start: Green Border

Left + Start: Yellow Border

Right + Start: Red Border

Up + Start: Black Border

Down + Start: White Border

To obtain the transparent Gameboy Border, rotate the Control Pad continuously in a clockwise direction until you hear a tone. Hold the Control Pad in that direction and press Start to get the border.
