G-Shock (Compass) Killer - new format - difficult

Postby mikejapan » Sun Jul 15, 2007 1:08 pm

I call this a G-Shock killer (compass in Japanese is "jishaku) and it looks like this;

It's made up of 4 insane killers all joined at the corners.
I can't post it whole coz it's too big, so I'll post them individually.

I reckon only one puzzle can be done without the extra numbers, but I'm not telling you which one.

let me get this straight, are these two separate puzzles?

I look forward to trying them out as soon as I can, I've been itching for a large overlapping killer puzzle and most of the ones I've seen on sudoku-samurai and flower-sudoku are Thinker and below.

Does anybody actually try to solve any of the puzzles I post here?


I know the feeling. At least 5 of my puzzles on djape forum have been completely ignored (or at least didn't get any comments).

They are two seperate puzzles, overlaping at the corners.

On Djape's site I've posted these and more of the same, but I gave up here coz nobody comments.
