• Introduction

Slitherlink is a logic puzzle game created in 1989 by Japanese publisher Nikoli, famous for creating Sudoku, among many other logic puzzles.
I discovered the game a few years ago on the Nintendo DS with 'Puzzle Series Vol. 5: Slitherlink', which was never released outside of Japan. It's such a good game I became addicted to it, and now it's time to spread the virus :)

This is my version of the game for Dingux (Dingoo Linux).
Its main features are:

• 456 levels
• Four grid sizes: 5x5 (easy), 7x7, 10x10, 20x20 (hard)
• Undo button
• Progress saved automatically
• Save state option


• Rules

In Slitherlink, you draw lines on a grid to create a meandering path, following the rules:

• The path must form a single loop, without crossing itself or branching.
• The numbers indicate how many lines surround each cell. Empty cells may be surrounded by any number of lines.

There is one unique solution for each level.
You can draw small x's on segments that cannot be connected.
You should be able to find the solution by logical deduction only, without guessing.

To Slitherlink beginners, I strongly advise to consult the Wikipedia page, and particularly the chapter 'Solution methods', which is a big help at the beginning.
