Each puzzle consists of a grid containing clues in various places. The object is to create islands by partitioning between clues with walls so:

  • Each island contains exactly one clue.
  • The number of squares in each island equals the value of the clue.
  • All islands are isolated from each other horizontally and vertically.
  • There are no wall areas of 2x2 or larger.
  • When completed, all walls form a continuous path.
