Slitherlink by Nikoli (3DS eShop)

Game Profile

With the Nikoli puzzle series, you can enjoy high-quality "Slitherlink" puzzles, created by Nikoli, who gave the world-famous puzzle "Sudoku" name.

The Nintendo 3DS allows for the realization of simple and easy to play operability. "Slitherlink" is a puzzle in which you connect dots with a line according to the rules. The greatest attraction is the fact that there exist an unlimited number of set sequences known as "theorems". With this puzzle, you can actually feel your own skill level rising with each theorem you learn.

To ensure your long-term enjoyment, we're prepared both a "Stage Clear" mode and a "Random" mode. In "Stage Clear" mode, you progress by clearing puzzles one by one, and in "Random" mode puzzles are generated at random. Please enjoy this high-quality "Slitherlink" game. 50 Slitherlink questions are collected. In this - one of Nikoli's most awesome original puzzles - you connect the dots to make a single ring.

i love slitherlink so much! I have the giant slitherlink-freak book from nikoli's website that has massive slitherlink puzzles in it. I'm totally buying this the instant the eshop updates in 2 hours

@Marioman64 Did you download this? Can you confirm for me that it supports touchscreen controls? Can't tell from the description/screenshots and I need to know that before I buy



Marioman64 said:

@scheherezade11 it does have touch screen controls. you drag dot to dot to make a wall or again to mark as an x. however the button controls are my method of choice because 1. more accurate, and 2. because the squares get small and hard to poke. although the magnifying glass on the top right isn't as big as i'd like it, it's enough to make it easy to see what you're doing in a specific area
presentation: 6/10
puzzle quality: 10/10
controls: 7/10
music... mute it

@Marioman64 Yeah, you're right. I'm just trying it out, and the button controls are not as awkward as I envisioned them being. Thanks for your input...I love slitherlink, too, so glad to see a competent entry on the eShop!

hard puzzles have VERY small sized numbers. this turned down the fun :/ maybe whith the bigger screen of 3ds xl this can be resolved...




I borrowed a Japanese import DS cart of this game as part of "The Puzzle Series" games in Japan. It was very good.

@LEGEND_MARIOID oh yeah those ds games nikoli made way back when that never made it across seas, i loved those that's why I'm so excited that Nikoli's other puzzles are finally becoming popular over here
