Those kind of squares made with numbers are called "Magic Square". Among those squares, the 4x4 kind has many interesting properties, such as:
  1. Built with 1 to 16 without repeat.
  2. The sum of numbers in any row is 34, e.g. 1 + 8 + 10 + 15 = 34.
  3. The sum of numbers in any column is 34, e.g. 1 + 12 + 7 + 14 = 34.
  4. The sum of numbers in both diagonal is 34, e.g. 1 + 13 + 16 + 4 = 34.
  5. The sum of numbers in any sub 2x2 squares is 34 (even cross the edge), e.g. 13 + 3 + 2 + 16 = 34.
  6. The sum of numbers in 4 corners is 34, e.g. 1 + 15 + 14 + 4 = 34.
  7. The sum of each corner with their relative 3 numbers is 34, e.g. 1 + 6 + 16 + 11 = 34.
  8. In every sub 3x3 squares, the sum of diagonal 2 numbers is 17, e.g. 1 + 16 = 17, 13 + 4 = 17.

The app 4x4 is a puzzle game base on these rules.

This is curious - but in the 4x4 free version, how do I progress to the other of the 4 levels?
I can only play one...

Edit: Nevermind... *facepalm*

I'm actually really enjoying this game! It's very simple, but challenging - exactly what I like.

Finished the lite and now working through the full, it's great!
