By Conceptis Ltd.

Kakuro are addictive logic puzzles best described as number-crosswords. Using pure logic and simple add/subtract calculations, these fascinating puzzles offer endless fun and intellectual entertainment to puzzle fans of all skills and ages.

Each puzzle consists of a blank grid with sum-clues in various places. The object is to fill all empty squares using numbers 1 to 9 so the sum of each horizontal block equals the clue on its left, and the sum of each vertical block equals the clue on its top. In addition, no number may be used in the same block more than once.

The game includes zoom for easier solving of large puzzles, as well as helpful features such as showing possible sum combinations in a block, showing the sum remainder of a block, and using pencilmarks to make temporary placement of numbers in the grid.

For more fun, Conceptis Kakuro includes a Weekly Bonus section providing an extra free puzzle each week.

Comments and Ratings for Conceptis Kakuro

Best Kakuro yet (1.3)
1/11/2018 6:13:30 PM 5/5 By hnkahl
I really liked the Conceptis Kakuro books in print. The puzzles in their mobile app are the same quality, are nicely graded, and similar in difficulty. The price per puzzle is similar to their print version as well. You would think the digital puzzles would be a bit less. Two features I'd like them to adopt from other Kakuro apps: KakuroClassic's number entry wheel (speediest entry system), and Primo Kakuro's multicolored pencil marks (very useful tool). When doing puzzles in print, you can place pencil marks in any order. This can be very helpful in solving. I'd like to see flexible positioning of the pencil marks in this app, which hasn't been done yet in any app. The puzzles marked very hard are very challenging (for me anyway) and can take me over an hour to solve. The medium puzzles are great when you only have a few minutes. In the end, the quality of the puzzles is the most important thing. As a bit of a Kakuro nut having done literally 10K puzzles or so, this is my favorite Kakuro app so far and they seem to keep producing more puzzles. Regarding the comments about colored pencil marks by other reviewers, I totally agree and miss that feature of Primo Kakuro. However, Conceptis has unlimited undo/redo. This allows you to try a solution with pencil marks when you are stuck and take it as far as you can. If you hit a dead end, you can back totally out to your original state and try a different route. Granted, not as slick as colored marks, but allows you to accomplish the same thing.

Love these puzzles, like the interface a lot too (1.3)

I am a fan of conceptis’ puzzle books and am delighted to find this app. Puzzles are addictive and the levels appropriately match the difficulty of each puzzle. I wish there were a way to choose the difficulty level of the weekly bonus rather than having it cycle through different levels. I love how the pencil marks of linearly adjacent cells are updated when you confirm a number. Thanks for a fun and enjoyable app!

Always loved playing this in crossword puzzle books! Now I don't need an eraser! I like that the possibilities can be accessed by tapping the number in the triangle.

Good puzzles, easy to use

Next best app to Primo Kakuro (1.3)

Let me preface this review by saying that Primo Kakuro was hands-down the best Kakuro app out there. Unfortunately, the developers have chosen not to upgrade their app to work with the new iPhone iOS. Perhaps they’ve decided to concentrate on their knitting apps (???!!!). They hadn’t added any more puzzle packs in a long time anyway, and I’ve been through them all. So I was forced to find a new app. After trying pretty much all of them I’ve settled on the Conceptis version as the best. After getting used to the interface, it works almost as well as Primo Kakuro. My only complaint is that it doesn’t allow you to use different colors for the pencilled-in numbers. Without this feature, the “Very Hard” puzzles are nearly impossible to complete without guessing, which kind of defeats the object of the game. Other than that, it’s an excellent substitute. And they seem to be adding more puzzle packs constantly, so hopefully we can enjoy it for a long time to come.

I love Kakuro (1.2)

I want right to the hard levels. I started Kakuro as soon as Dell came out with the written ones and have been addicted ever since! I wish there were more out there!

It is not my favorite kakuro app. It is tedious to play. Now, if all you are looking for is to play the game go for it. So it is not awful, but it is not great either.

Great potential (1.2)

This has been the best alternative to Primo Kakuro yet — the only viable one I’ve been able to find. But the ability to use different colored pencils is huge, and doesn’t exist in this app. Otherwise, it is difficult to narrow down the possibilities for the large hard puzzles. If it had that capability, I would give it a 5.

Like it but... (1.2)

Fantastic puzzles. My only wish is that this app had a multicolor pencil feature.

Fun and challenging (1.2)
