## Kakuro Samples (36 x 24)

For fans of Kakuro

### Kakuro Samples (36 x 24)

To test out my new Kakuro generation system, I created these full-page 36x24 puzzles for people to try.

Generating these was by no means a simple exercise. I first generated a suitable template (grid pattern), and then built a 24 x 24 puzzle, which I expanded row by row to 36 rows.

The zip files contain the puzzle images. There are 5 puzzles, all on the same grid, but in increasing order of difficulty (the higher the puzzle number, the harder it is, according to my solver. Solutions are given separately in a text file.

The first 3 puzzles are attached here, the others in the next post.

Pretty awesome, though I do wish you also posted a smaller one since 36x24 seems a bit to hard for me
Do you plan to release it in an app?

No, no release plans! My software is really a research exercise

I see... Nevertheless I think it would be awesome as a released app though I'm also currently trying to make a puzzle generator for my sudoku/kakuro hybrid puzzle game, but still couldn't get an optimal one; since it's basically a 7x7 sudoku where 5 numbers in the row is fixed (5-6-7-8-9), the last 2 is not (can be 1,2,3 or 4). The generator still uses a lot of loops, and sometimes fail to create a valid board, also I still have problems with the elimination process so I end up clearing the cells manually to make a valid puzzle. Maybe you'd like to have a look at it sometime?
