Futoshiki is a logic puzzle game inspired by Sudoku. Like Sudoku, you must place the numbers in each cell on the grid so that it only appears once in every row or column. Instead of more numbers, Futoshiki uses inequality signs as hits.
Choose from 2 difficulty levels and 3 grid sizes.
Place in your guesses before committing to your final answer.
Pay attention to the inequality signs before placing in any of the numbers.

Objectives and rules
You start with a largely empty grid with a few numbers and inequality signs between each cell.
The size of the grid determines how many starting numbers the game reveals.
The harder the difficulty, the fewer the numbers you start with.
Fill in the entire screen with numbers.
No number should repeat in any row or column, like in Sudoku.
The numbers must follow the logic of the inequality signs
If two cells show a less than sign (>) between them, the number to the left should be bigger than the number to the right.
e.g. 4 > 2
Following the logic of the game’s rules will help you solve the puzzle.
You can place in candidate (guess) answers before placing in your final answer.
Candidate numbers are small. You can have several of them at once.
As you eliminate guesses, you can remove candidate numbers until you have one left.
To remove candidates, clear the cell and add in the remaining candidate answers.
If you only have a single candidate left, select that same number again to make it your final answer.
The game is suited for people of all ages who like numbers & logic puzzle games.
The game has no adult themed content.
