FavoriteLoadingAdd game to your favorites

Also known as Unequal, Futoshiki is a logic puzzle that involves filling a 5 x 5 grid with numbers without repeating any. The rules are similar to Sudoku but with a twist. Helping you out instead of more numbers are inequality signs. These indicate whether one cell should have a number bigger or smaller than the cell next to it.

  • Fill out the empty squares with the numbers 1 to 5.
  • Use a few numbers and inequality signs to determine the value of each unsolved sell.
  • Getting confused? Use notes mode on the cell to keep track of your guesses.
