Description

Killer Sudoku is a puzzle that combines elements of Sudoku and Kakuro. Despite the name, the simpler Killer Sudokus can be easier to solve than regular Sudokus, depending on the solver's skill at mental arithmetic; the hardest ones, however, can take hours to crack.

Rules

Numbers from 1 to 9 have to be placed in the squares such that each row, column, cage has each number appearing only once, and the numbers in each cage add up to the assigned number.
