Under rating threshold (show) There also needs to be a way to see what islands are connected beyond simply trying to follow the bridges with your eye.

Under rating threshold (show) Good version of game. Agree with sgtdroopy's suggestions. Also, prefer boards to have single solution, these frequently have multiple correct configurations.

Under rating threshold (show) Hashi is supposed to have a unique solution. You should work on your generator. I just spent a lot of time trying to decide a move only to figure out that either option would have worked. That's not how Hashi is supposed to work.

Under rating threshold (show) If there's no unique solution, how can you consistently apply any strategy? Whenever I get stuck, there's the nagging question of whether it's because I haven't searched deeply enough, or just because there are multiple actions that will work equally well. It kills the enjoyment for me.

Under rating threshold (show) Quite fun, despite the times where more than one solution would work. Being able to play a practically unlimited number of games, even 32x32 (which would be a huge pain to verify manually) certainly makes it all worth it, in my opinion.

Under rating threshold (show) Just wanted to say I am enjoying this game. I agree with others that hashi puzzles should have unique solutions, but I'm not sure how one would write a generator which ensures this. Perhaps there is something in open source? One thing I would find useful that would be less onerous to implement would be a pause button. Anyway, good game. 4 stars.

Under rating threshold (show) Thanks a lot for this fun and free game. I don't know why people have the nerve to complain about it. If they think it should be improved, they should try making a better game themselves or just stop playing this one if it is so far beneath their standards.

Under rating threshold (show) @cbowen4 Yes, Hashi is supposed to only have one solution, but I would rather have unlimited Hashi in one place for free than having to buy loads of puzzle books or download individual puzzles from other sites. I give it a 5/5

Under rating threshold (show) Ah, further playing revealed a problem with the code. I'm guessing each puzzle is randomly generated, but the problem arises when there are two valid solutions. Since the game seems to work backward from one solution, it only marks that one correctly. I'm not sure what could be done with that, but it is a major sticking point for puzzle fans.

Under rating threshold (show) Excellent game. One suggestion though: what about enlarging the playing area, specially for the toughest levels? it gets a little bit crowded. Tks

Under rating threshold (show) Add a timer pause that hides the puzzle. Save the game to flash storage every so often (perhaps after each move, if it's been longer than 30 seconds or 3 since the most recent save, save again?), so you can pick up where you left off if you accidentally close it (or browser crashes) mid-game. Also, the idea about highlighting island chains is interesting, but please make it optional. Some would feel it cheapens the game.

Under rating threshold (show) I think zooming would be useful for the big puzzles. I also think saving would be useful if you are going to try something you can't prove.

Under rating threshold (show) there doesn`t need to be a unique solution. The problems with the multi solutions only apply to small parts of the puzzle and if you spend enough time with the game it gets easier to recognize the situations in which they occur. I think the game is more challenging with the multi configurations

Under rating threshold (show) Looking at the high scores, I cannot wrap my head around how any mortal human being could possibly complete the game at master level in 83 seconds, or even in 183. My hand, let alone my brain, simply doesn't move that fast.
