Best Kakuro is a challenging logics game similar to Sudoku.

In Kakuro, also known as Cross Sums, you need to solve crossword style grids.

You can only enter numbers one through nine, using hints from the results shown over and under the diagonal lines. Kakuro takes some time and mostly logical thinking.

In this version of the game, you can choose from two different grids, 8*8 and 14*18. The game also provides five different difficulty levels, which ensure that the game stays challenging for a while.

Better players will also like the using the timer mode to set themselves limits. You can either use your keyboard or mouse to play it, however if you use the latter you'll be able to reveal possible combinations with mouse clicks.

Just like for Sudoku, one of the charms of Kakuro is playing it with a pen and paper. It seems Best Kakuro has taken this into account as it allows you to create and save your own puzzles and print them out.

The only drawback we'd have with Best Kakuro. Since it's a Leopard only game, we would have expected a smoother looking interface.

Despite the poor interface Best Kakuro is a fun game of Cross Sums.

Try for the best Kakuro puzzles. Best Kakuro creates Kakuro puzzles in 5 difficulty levels from easy to killer, and grid sizes ranging from 8x8 to 14x18.

Print the puzzles, or solve them on screen using either your mouse or keyboard. All puzzles have a guaranteed unique solution and can be solved using logic - no guessing required.
