App description: This is an application that lets you enjoy "Slitherlink" puzzles, famous from the puzzle magazines.

Slitherlink is a logics puzzle similar to Sudoku, where you have to think carefully to solve each puzzle bit by bit. There are only two simple rules: "connect the dots to make a circle" and "the number of lines has to match the number on the board".
While the premise is simple, it's also full of depth and you'll be surprised by the many different ways you can solve the puzzles.

This is the perfect application for people who want to keep their brains in shape, or spend some high quality time. Do give it a try!

Full of High Quality Puzzles
The problems contained in Slitherlink have all been created by professional puzzle makers. You won't find any of the unfortunately typical problems of other puzzle games, such as bland computer-generated puzzles that have more than one solution, verbose hints and require too much trial-and-error. Each puzzle is carefully hand-crafted to be as enjoyable as possible.

Download Additional Puzzle Packs
When you've finished all the puzzles that come with the application, there are still more puzzles out there for you to solve! At the moment, there are over 100 additional downloadable puzzles with an estimated play time of over 80 hours for amateur players, or 20 hours for intermediate puzzle-solvers. More puzzles are also constantly being added.

Pleasant Controls
We gave our utmost to create a very pleasant and easy-to-use control system. You can choose between three different control systems: a simple and easy to use tapping mode, a drawing mode that lets you use your finger as a brush, and the reliable flick mode, which has very few mistaken inputs.

Welcoming to Beginners
The first time you play Slitherlink, an easy-to-understand tutorial will appear and explain how the game is played. There is also an answer-checking function for those big-board, complicated puzzles.

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...
