To solve a Kakuro
, fill in the empty cells with single digits from 1 to 9 so that each vertical and horizontal block adds up to the totals given. Each individual digit can only be used once in each block.
Use the mouse to click up (or down) through the numbers 1 to 9 in each square. The small black arrows on each side of the square tell you whether you are counting from 1 up to 9 (right arrow) or from 9 down to 1 (left arrow).
Using your keyboard, you can type in up to eight practice numbers above the line at the top of each box.
When you have correctly completed a block it fills with colour and any practice numbers will disappear.
