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 it, but a few suggestions
I love this game and used to play it in puzzle magazines long before there were ipads and apps. It's much more enjoyable playing on my tablet device because I no longer wear through the paper with my constant erasing. So thank you, Conceptis for this electronic version.
A few suggestions for the next release:
1. I do not want the game to automatically put an "x" on a path that I erase.
2. Is there a way to save the game at a certain point, rather than constant saving, so that I can restore to a certain point (and not have to completely start over)
3. Could we have a choice of multiple colors for our paths, so I can discriminate between paths I'm absolutely certain about, and paths I'm just trying out?
This game used to appear on variety puzzle books when I was a kid. I liked it then and like it now. I'm on my second time through the app. It's very challenging and doesn't get old. I agree that it would be nice to have the option of a different color for certain pathways and trial pathways. However, the game is still an excellent mind bender.
Great value, something different!
Lots of free puzzles, works great, something different - not too easy!
