  • Review Kakuro by Nikoli (3DS eShop)

    4, 8, 15, 16, 23, 42

    There's certainly no shortage of number puzzles lurking around the dark, damp corners of the eShop. Sudoku is a prime culprit, and we wouldn't be at all surprised if there was a degree of puzzle overlap between them all, however mathematically unlikely that may be. Kakuro, on the other hand, is much less of a bruised dead horse...

About The Game

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

The Nintendo 3DS allows for the realization of simple and easy to play operability.

Kakuro by Nikoli contains 50 Kakuro puzzles. In Kakuro, you break down the totaled numbers given as hints to fill in the spaces. We say "break down the numbers", but in Nikoli's Kakuro very little calculations are actually required, with concentration and the power of deduction being the most necessary attributes. To ensure your long-term enjoyment, a "Stage Clear" mode and a "Random" mode are included in the game. In "Stage Clear" mode, you progress by clearing puzzles one by one, and in "Random" mode puzzles are generated at random.
