What's the difference between Easy and Normal in Murder by Numbers?
What are the differences between the Easy and Normal difficulty levels in the Picross-like puzzle game Murder by Numbers?
The game explains the difference after you complete the tutorial on a new game:
Easy: Completed rows are automatically crossed out. Hints are on by default.
Normal: No automatic completion of rows. Hints have to be toggled on.
If this is your first time playing this type of puzzle, we recommend starting on easy. Otherwise, challenge yourself to normal! You can change your difficulty at any time, and cases can always be replayed for a better rank.
Additionally, the difficulty will also affect how many case points you get for solving a puzzle.
