HOW TO PLAY. Fill in all the squares with numbers from 1 to 9, following these rules:
The numbers in each group of horizontal or vertical connected blocks cannot repeat;
The numbers in each group of horizontal or vertical connected blocks must sum up to the number at the left (for horizontal) or top (for vertical) groups.
To fill in a square, first click the number on the keypad on the left. Then click the square where you want the number to be entered.
If you need to erase a number from a square, click the "X" on the keypad, then click the number to be erased.
I am not very good at this game, but usually the first thing I do is fill in all the single squares. These are the squares that have only one possible entry. Doing so gives you a good head start on the puzzle.
The faster you finish the game, the higher your score. If you get stuck and need help, click the "HINT" button. Note that clicking the HINT button does incur a time penalty.
