Slitherlink are addictive loop-forming puzzles which were invented in Japan. Using pure logic and requiring no math to solve, these fascinating puzzles offer endless fun and intellectual entertainment to puzzle fans of all skills and ages.

Each puzzle consists of a rectangular lattice of dots with some clues in various places. The object is to connect the dots surrounding each clue so that the number of lines equals the value of the clue and the lines around all clues form one continuous loop with no crossings or branches. Empty squares may be surrounded by any number of lines.

The game features 2-finger tapping for quick zoom, auto complete clues setting and a link segment highlighting option to help to avoid creating separate loops.

Love the logic games


This company makes the best games. They're not bright and splashy, but they don't need to be.
I do find myself wishing for a save button to make it easy to go back to a last known good moment in this game, but otherwise, it's a wonderful new style brain bending logic game. I give it full marks.

Fun brain teaser


It took me a bit to figure out how to play this. Now, I'm addicted! Great brain teaser. I like that the mobile version automatically puts in the x's when a path is not available. I would like to see that in the desktop version!

Love the game…


… but lose the 'x's. They get in the way. This is especially a hindrance on the iPhones tiny screen.

It would be helpful to have an erase tool that could remove ALL lines and x's in a portion of the board.

The ability to use digital lines makes this game worthwhile. Saves money on erasers.
