In a rectangular or square grid exactly half of cells are painted gray. The aim is to divide the grid into regions. Each region must contain one area of white cells and one area of gray cells. A pair of areas must be of the same shape and size (the areas may be rotated or mirrored). A number indicates how many cells of the same color the region contains. A region may contain more than one cell with a number (in this case the cells contain the same number). Konarupu ("Corner Loop") is a logic puzzle invented by Naoki Inaba (Japan). The goal is to create a continuous non-intersecting loop, drawn from one dot to an adjacent dot horizontally or vertically. A number in a cell indicates how many times the loop turns by 90 degrees in dots surrounding this cell. Gaidoaro ("Guide Arrow") is a logic puzzle created by Naoki Inaba (Japan). A rectangular or square grid contains arrows and a single star. The goal is to blacken some cells so that the white cells must be connected horizontally or vertically. Blackened cells should not share an edge. Cells with arrows or a star cannot be blackened. An arrow indicates the direction in which you must move to reach a star by only going through white cells (there must be only one way from any white cell to reach a cell with a star). Mid-Loop is a logic puzzle published by Nikoli. A rectangular or square grid contains dots; a dot can be situated in the center of a cell or on a border between neighbouring cells. The aim is to draw a single continuous non-intersecting loop that properly passes through all dots. Dots must be traveled straight through. Segments of a straight line going out of a dot must be equal. Dotchi-Loop is a logic puzzle published by Nikoli. A rectangular or square grid is divided into regions. A grid contains white and black circles in some cells. The goal is to draw a single non-intersecting loop. The loop must visit all cells with white circles; the loop cannot pass through a black circle. The line either travels straight through all the white circles, or makes a 90 degrees turn at all the white circles in a region. Trinairo is a logic puzzle invented by Leo de Winter (Netherlands). The objective is to fill a 9 x 9 grid with letters so that each row and each column contains three letters A, three letters B and three letters C. If a cell is marked with other color, a letter in the cell differs from letters in all orthogonally adjacent cells. Detour is a logic puzzle. It contains a rectangular or square grid divided into regions. The goal is to draw a single continuous non-intersecting loop that visits every cell exactly ones. Each number in a region indicates the number of times the loop turns in the region. Balance Loop is a logic puzzle created by Prasanna Seshadri (India). A rectangular or square grid contains black and white circles in some cells. The aim is to draw a single continuous non-intersecting loop that visits all cells with circles. Loop segments extending from a white circle are of equal length, while the loop segments extending from a black circle are not. If a cirlce contains a number, it indicates the sum of the loop segment lengths on both sides of the circle. Turf is a logic puzzle invented by John Bulten (USA). A rectangular or square grid contains numbers in some cells. The goal is to shade some cells so that the grid will be divided into gray and white regions. Each region must contain at least one number. This number indicates the size of a region. If a region contains any other cell with a number, it represents how many surrounding cells are white, including itself and diagonal ones. SquarO is a logic puzzle similar to Minesweeper. A rectangular or square grid contains dots on intersections of lines. A number in a cell indicates how many of the four surrounding dots are black. Chiyotsui (from Japanese, literally "door hinge") is a logic puzzle published by Nikoli. A rectangular or square grid is divided into regions. The goal is to blacken some cells of a grid according to the following rules:
Aqre is a logic puzzle invented by Eric Fox (USA). A rectangular or square grid is divided into regions. The goal is to blacken some cells of a grid that all black cells form one orthogonally connected area. A cell with a number indicates how many cells in the region must be blackened. In regions without a number any amount of cells may be blackened (all cells may stay white). There cannot be a run of more than three black or white cells in the grid. Geradeweg ("Straight Loop") is a logic puzzle. A rectangular or square grid contains circles with numbers in some cells. The task is to draw a single closed non-intersecting loop that passes through all circles. The number indicates the length of the straight segment passed through the circle. If the loop turns in a number cell, both straight segments must have the same length as the number indicates. Kuroclone is a logic puzzle published by Nikoli. A rectangular or square grid is divided into regions. The aim is to blacken some cells of a grid. Each region must contain two areas of black cells: this pair of areas must be of the same shape and size (the areas may be rotated or mirrored). Cells with numbers are always white. The arrow points to an adjacent cell that belongs to a black area. The number indicates the size of this area. When two cells are orthogonally adjacent across a region boundary, at least one cell must be white. Yajisan-Sokoban is a logic puzzle invented by Jamie Hargrove. A rectangular or square grid contains gray squares. The task is to move the gray squares vertically or horizontally (some squares may stay unshifted). Gray squares cannot cross the tracks of other gray squares and cannot move over other squares (gray squares can pass through numbered cells). A cell containing a number and an arrow represents how many gray squares are in the row or column pointed at by the arrow. If there is a gray square on top of a numbered cell, it plays no further role in the puzzle, and may be true or false. If a gray square passes through a cell with a number and an arrow, this numbered cell provides true information. Line Segment is a logic puzzle invented by Erich Friedman (USA). The task is to draw line segments that pass through exactly 3 or 4 consecutive cells. The line segments can only be horizontal (H), vertical (V), or diagonal (D). Each cell must be visited exactly once. A cell with a letter contains a line segment with that orientation. Raneko ("Ranekomappu"; from Japanese, literally "cat habitat map") is a logic puzzle published by Nikoli. A rectangular or square grid contains circles (with numbers or empty). The goal is to divide the grid into regions. Each region contains one circle ("cat"). A circle with a number indicates the size of a region. A grid may contain black cells. The number in a black cell indicates how many regions share an edge with that black cell. Factorism ("Find the Factors") is a logic puzzle invented by Iva Sallay (USA). The goal is to place numbers from 1 to N across the top and down the left of the square grid N x N. A number in a cell indicates the product of numbers outside the grid in the corresponding row and column. Akiperago ("Archipelago") is a logic puzzle published by Nikoli. A rectangular or square grid contains black cells; some of them contains numbers. The goal is to blacken some cells of a grid according to the following rules:
Yakazu is a logic puzzle invented by Patrick Tirone. A rectangular or square grid is partially divided by black cells into compartments. The aim is to fill all white cells with the numbers. Each compartment, vertically or horizontally, must contain a set of consecutive numbers, but in any order (for example: 4-1-3-2). Each compartment of two cells or more must contain all the numbers starting from 1. Miraringutairu ("Mirroring Tile") is a logic puzzle published by Nikoli. A rectangular or square grid contains black cells; some of them contain numbers. The goal is to locate blocks of black cells in the grid. Each numbered cell indicates the total number of black cells in the block (a block may contain few numbered cells). The grid may contain blocks without numbers. No two blocks may share an edge, but each block must be connected with at least one another block of the same size and shape through their corners (blocks may be rotated or mirrored). 单词的谜题 Word Finder（"单词搜索"， "Word Search"，"Word Seek"，"Word Sleuth"，"Mystery Word"）使用正方形或长方形的格网，里面有字母。需要在格网中找单词。单词的字母要用折线连接起来；这条线只弯曲90度。每一个字母只能使用一次。 为了制作谜题，先需要选择单词。而且，也可以选择关键词，解完谜题以后，未使用的字母就构成关键词。 Nine Letters - 是 Word Finder 单词的谜题的变种。使用正方形的格网，分为小格（3×3），里面有字母。需要在格网中找9个字母的单词。 Spider Web - 有被一条线连接起来的圈儿。在圆圈中有字母。需要找包括关键单词字母的圈儿的连续序列。 其他的游戏 Maze （迷宫) - 是一个错综复杂的道路组成的结构。需要找到两个标出的点之间的路径。计算机程序使您可以创建任意形状的迷宫，不仅是长方形或正方形。 |
