Kakuro is one of the oldest logic grid puzzles. Kakuro is like a crossword puzzle with numbers. Each word must add up to the number provided in the clue above it or to the left. A given number can only be used once in a word. Every kakuro puzzle has one and only solution, and can be solved through logic alone.
Dot Kakuro is a new variant of Kakuro puzzle. No digit can be duplicated in a row or column. If difference between two numbers in neighboring cells equals 1, then they are separated by a dot. If a dot is absent between two white cells, the difference between the numbers in these cells is more than 1.

Ratings and Reviews
Enjoyable, easy to use, a bit stingy
I'd say this game is pretty good. So far I've played Kukuro, and Dot Kukuro which I like because you get to use the type of logic required for Sudoku in a Kukuro puzzle.
I didn't rate it higher because you only get 35 free puzzles. Then each set of 25 puzzles is 99 cents each. Seriously way too expensive. Other apps I've used are much more generous. On the other hand, out of the three I've tried, this one is the easiest to use, has the best design.
This app is worth downloading to play 35 free puzzles. After that, I'd look elsewhere.

I have really enjoyed this game. Each time I learn some “other”trick or nuance. I would love to see an app devoted to “dot” Kakuro, so there would be more to choose from.
I love it.
Works very smoothly. So good for keeping sharp with numbers and absolutely addictive. You learn numbers with very limited possibilities quickly and the game speeds up.
