From very easy 5x5 snacks to very hard 7x7 brain breakers
Skyscrapers rules are simple. Each puzzle consists of an NxN grid with some clues along its sides. The object is to place a skyscraper in each square, with a height between 1 and N, so that no two skyscrapers in a row or column have the same number of floors. In addition, the number of visible skyscrapers, as viewed from the direction of each clue, is equal to the value of the clue. Note that higher skyscrapers block the view of lower skyscrapers located behind them.
Conceptis Skyscrapers puzzles range from very easy 5x5 snacks to very hard 7x7 brain breakers taking several hours to solve. The puzzles may be played interactively online or printed and solved on paper. For recommended solving techniques please visit our new Skyscrapers techniques page or have some fun with this interactive Skyscrapers tutorial.
Useful preferences such as 'Show conflicts' and 'Auto-check completed lines' as well as features such as 'Highlighting skyscrapers' to show how many buildings are visible from the direction of a clue make the new puzzle game tremendously fun to play. Other features common to all Conceptis online games are save, print (including resize and multi-page), zoom in/out, undo/redo and check solution.
