Ran through the samples and thoroughly enjoyed them; A lot of the logic is similar to that of Thermo Sudokus (For obvious reasons) which are my favorite sudoku variant.


solver / generator / visualizer had to be modified a bit, but here's my very first Thermo Sudoku [woot]

How does this rate? My solver is saying maybe "medium" ?

I'd say it's definitely above the medium classics but probably a little below the medium killers. Medium is definitely the closest grouping in my mind.

I don't do most of the difficult killers for time reasons, but I'd say that probably tracks with my perception of a difficult level killer. Maybe a little below the average, but there's definitely enough information there to guide you towards the weak points in the puzzle while not just totally falling apart at first blush either.
