Puzzle 196

Looks like Slitherlink, is actually Colorlink, and solving ought to remind you of Crosslink (unless you make some intuitive guesses).

Incidentally, I think this is the first Colorlink puzzle where each of the colored cells and black cells don’t have their own rotational symmtery.

Seriously, how long could that blue loop possibly be?

This is a Friday In-Out Colorlink puzzle, a synthesis of In-Out Slitherlink and Colorlink. Each clue is always correctly colored, and the number tells the truth if it is inside that color’s loop. If it is outside the loop of the corresponding color, it is inverted as it would be in In-Out Slitherlink. There are no black numbers.

Puzzle 109

I challenged myself to create an easy Colorlink puzzle without blatantly separating the colors (as some I have made did). It was actually pretty tough to do; this is an inherently difficult type to solve, it seems. Anyways, if you aren’t familiar with some of the Colorlink nuances, there’s still a couple of places you might get tripped up on, but it remains a puzzle I’d call easy.

Puzzle 28

Introducing black numbers, which are explained on the description page. Not difficult. I really like how this puzzle turned out.
