Awesome!! Are there no other Nikoli enthusiasts in the TA forum?? There are other slitherlink ios games but they've been lackluster. This one looks promising because of the puzzle sizes and pragmatic interface. I know it's a stretch but game center achievements would be the icing on the cake! Hopefully we'll see quality yajilin, heyawake, and numberlink in the future...

I'm totally a fan. This is one of my favorite puzzles. Sadly, this one commits the cardinal sin of iOS games (for me) by not using the separate volume channel as other apps do. Every sound it makes is on the same volume as the ringer and there is no mute button.

I played around with the small puzzles, and they were as good as I expected, but I deleted it for the oversight with volume.

Nice! Finally a decent looking Slitherlink. I have been missing this ever since I switched over from my DS some years ago.

Reminds me more to those games (a Microsoft classic) where you have to find hidden mines (Minesweeper) than to Sudoku. The same kind of numbers as "hints". Pretty nice. Solved the first free easy level pack. There is one free pack with 10 easy puzzles, two free packs with 20 medium puzzles and one starter pack (free) with 50 puzzles. Three other packs (medium-hard) with 8-24 puzzles are for $.99 IAP each.

Gameplay recommended for puzzle fans! (But there are ads inside…)

I like SlitherLink and this plays well, so far, but does anyone know if buying the IAP will get rid of the annoying ads?

Nope. Unfortunately. But at least what they obstruct are white space so it all good.

Shame. I'll buy puzzle packs etc once I can purchase an IAP to remove ads but until then I'll wait...
