Shikaku Madness

Are you a puzzle maniac? Do you eat Japanese logic games like sudoku and nonograms for breakfast? Give Shikaku Madness a try. It's a fun and challenging game, with lots of unique puzzles to solve. Bust your brain as you try to figure out how to completely cover the game grid using squares and rectangles. Sound complicated? Don't worry! The first few levels provide an interactive tutorial to help new players learn the rules.

Click & drag on the puzzle grid to draw. Each number on the grid is a clue; the number represents the size of the rectangle that overlaps it. For example, a clue of "9" means that you need to draw a 3x3 square on top of that clue. The trick is to draw each square and rectangle so that there's no wasted space on the grid. You can't overlap squares, either. Fortunately, there's no time limit, and you can always try again if you make a mistake.

Nonogram Madness

A fun & challenging puzzle game; best described as a mix between sudoku and crosswords. Use the provided clues to fill in the correct blocks in the grid, revealing a hidden picture. Complete the included "easy" difficulty puzzles, and if you're up to the challenge, unlock the "medium" and "hard" difficulties for hours of puzzling fun. Includes an interactive tutorial to get beginners up to speed. Think you're a nonogram master? Try solving the randomly generated puzzles for infinite replay value!

The goal of a nonogram puzzle is to "fill" all the correct blocks in a grid. The key to solving each puzzle is the numbers on the top and left of the grid. Each number gives you a clue about how many blocks are filled in each row or column. For example, if the clue for a row was "4 3 1", that means there are four sequentially filled blocks, a gap of one (or more), three filled blocks, another gap, and then finally one filled block on its own. In a 10x10 puzzle grid, this clue solves the whole row: 4 filled + 1 blank + 3 filled + 1 blank + 1 filled = 10 total. Solve easy clues first, then you can logically fill in the rest of the blocks in the grid.
