The date code above is accurate but sadly the Japanese-English DS homebrew divide is back in full swing and we all missed it. Anyway MeRAMAN is a fairly prolific homebrew developer and you may have seen his now C&Ded Tetris Grand Masters port (one of the top versions of tetris period let alone on the DS), his midi player/keyboard simulator (also nice homebrew libraries for the same) or his versions of KoiKoi and Shisensho (more or less mahjong solitaire).
Back on topic this is the initial release of a homebrew version of Picross and a fairly nice implementation of it, it lacks touch screen in the game proper but makes up for it with a very nice puzzle maker, interesting options and online support. Speaking of online you will benefit from (read pretty much require) having online in the initial setup of it. Play might be slightly different to the versions of Picross that appeared in English as it opts for the no error messages approach to play. Coloured puzzles are present though and it has a top flight puzzle maker.
