If anyone in your household has a Nintendo DS, there is an excellent picross game called Picross 3D. So very much like what you're describing, but in 3D so it makes objects, not flat pictures.

As others have said, I leave it running if they aren't touch free. I use a paper towel to turn it off when done.

The Stanley Parable is currently free on Epic. This is a really fun indie game that doesn't require a lot of gaming experience to enjoy.

No, more like 20. The 65-70% is a percentage of the first area, not the whole map. I think there are 3-4 "main" areas. I've avoided spoilers, so I don't know the exact number.

My son has a school trip there in June. We haven't paid yet, so we're out nothing if it doesn't happen.
