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.

Would probably put it towards easy. Didn't need to pencil mark to solve it, which is almost never true of a medium killer.

I'm thinking it should be easy, but I'm still stuck in it [bored]

Thanks for the feedback [thumbup]

I'm trying to nudge these puzzles to the easy level, and I think I've finally succeeded:
