About Shikaku Ultimate

A colorful puzzle based on a classic japanese game.

The concept of this puzzle is extremely simple, but at the same time challenging.
Shikaku, also known as Rectangles, is a classic logic puzzle with japanese origin.

Classic Shikaku is played on a rectangular grid. Some of the squares in the grid are numbered. The objective is to divide the grid into rectangular and square pieces such that each piece contains exactly one number, and that number represents the area of the rectangle.

Here is an updated and evolved Ultimate version of the puzzle. Now rectangle cells are no longer limited to the numbers, they can contain different shapes which should be drawn on the grid.

We hope that you'll get as much pleasure from the game, as we did from its creation!

Also known as: Rectangles, Divide by Squares or Divide by Box

Great shikaku puzzles. Many are genuinely tricky! The hint system is not especially helpful, so frustration may lead to purchasing help.

C70%
by C####:

I normally don't rate games, and I dislike being asked to, but this game is fantastic. It is the ideal mix of hard and relaxing, it gives you enough hints to finish the game and is very good looking. Never found so much fun in a casual game to pass time.

F70%
by F####:

Initially, this game came off as rather simple as it is quick to grasp, leading me to believe I would get bored of it soon. But as i played the later levels, new shapes and board sizes are introduced slowly, leading to very challenging puzzles that can take quite a few minutes to solve. To anyone playing this, put in the time to get past the first 40ish levels, and you be rewarded with a good challenge.

Please, more levels! The game is great, beautiful and clever. Create a random generator, please. It's much money for only 200 easy levels. Very expensive!

R70%
by R####:

I think this is a really interesting concept and I've enjoyed it so far. It's just that some of the controls are touchy and it can get annoying. Overall, it's really fun.

Z70%
by Z####:

This game is insanely addictive, don't be fooled by the shabby menu and icon graphics. The developers are not money grabbing either, which is a refreshing change, offering infinite goes and no time or money gating. The music is calming and yet extremely sad, and I like it for that. All in all a wonderful game!

V70%
by V####:

Really nice concept, I like how the new things are introduced one by one and the early levels helps to understand all those new things really easily. Also the music fits the gameplay perfectly! Keep doing the good work. ;)

U70%
by U####:

Good game. Good for beginners, too, as it is kept simple for the first half levels. Had to edit my evaluation, though (5 stars to 4), because at the end game starts to crash and takes a long time to be "active". Found another shitaku game I liked better.

I70%
by I####:

Great way to challenge the brain. Only niggle is that the instructions as to what each shape can do could be a bit clearer eg the right angle can be two across and five up, the T shape could be two up, five across, then three up. Ie they don't have to be regular shapes.

T70%
by T####:

This is a wonderful puzzle game. The pacing is great as new methods of solving the puzzle are introduced. Its pretty and has simple rules. Im tarely bogged down on the ads which is pretty great. I got so into the game i finished it!

G70%
by G####:

The early levels are way too easy, the middle levels are a bit more challenging. Ad intrusion is problematic.

Q70%
by Q####:

Wow. Best puzzle game ever. Played on the subway to pass time on the commute. Kept me intrigued all 200 levels and as it got harder, I had to learn with it, even missed my stop twice because I was so mesmerized! Thank you for such a great game. Hard to find a timeless and relaxing puzzle game that doesn't get repetitive.

X70%
by X####:

It's to easy, I've made it through around 100 levels without so much as a second glance at the puzzles. It is to basic to be interesting and it's not nearly as fun as other versions of this. I don't recommend it

E70%
by E####:

The game is addictive even though the puzzles are rather easy. There are two minor annoyances for me, which are: 1 - the game crashes when ads pop up, which, thankfully, there aren't that many ads, and 2 - the game defaults to drawing rectangles when you are drawing regions, which can sometimes overwrite blocks. Other than those two things, this deserves 5 stars.

C70%
by C####:

Exactly my type of game, almost perfectly executed. Two minor gripes: some used colors are almost indistinguishable from others, and it's 'only' 200 levels long :)

Y70%
by Y####:

Edited my review: fun game but it starts to get interesting only after around level 80. Up until then it is a kid's game. I understand that each game needs to ease people in but 80 is too far away.

J70%
by J####:

You'll get addicted but not like other games. With puzzles you'll want to try them several times a day until you solve them. It takes a couple of seconds to load but once you pass that it goes nice and smooth.

A70%
by A####:

Great puzzle game, really addictive. The graphics and colors are nice. I do wish there was an indicator in the square with the shape when that particular requirement is fulfilled (like in the leo del sol version- a personal fave). But that is a minor thing. Overall, great game! Definitely recommend!

V70%
by V####:

It's different and gives me something to do when I'm bored. The levels get harder but it eases you into the hard ones so it doesn't seem too taxing. Overall, I really loved it and I beat the whole game. I just wish there were more than 200 levels. :)

U70%
by U####:

One of if not the best puzzle game I've ever played. It has all the good elements: endless time and tries— multiple solutions— clear instructions— not too challenging. I finished it without any hint because it's so much fun and relaxing I played them all levels in less than 2 hours. The levels are unique and the later ones got harder but not boring! Thank you for an amazing game. the best puzzle game ever!

I70%
by I####:

Finally reached the last level available yet I'm still satisfied as it is. It's getting harder slowly and the daily clue helps getting around the most tricky ones. Sometimes I would come back to a level after trying for hours and find the solution in a few seconds. Proves that you need to clear your mind in front of an issue sometimes to resolve it. I'll keep the game to recommend it to friends. Good job!

T70%
by T####:

So far so good. Only been playing it for a few hours. Usually don't review a game this soon after playing it, but the "Leave a review" pop up was getting annoying. Gameplay is easy to operate and entertaining. Controls are easy. There is no tutorial, but it takes just a few seconds and a tablespoon of common sense (if you don't have that then you probably can't read this review) to figure out the concept. Starting off well, time will tell how the game does over a longer measurement period.

T70%
by T####:

One among the top best mind boggling & logical thinking game developers

L70%
by L####:

Please! More levels!

S70%
by S####:

Not too hard or too easy

G70%
by G####:

But a reasonable way to kill an hour or two on a plane

Q70%
by Q####:

Slightly strange UI that could do with more polishing, but the game itself is stimulating and calming at the same time, the perfect combo!

B70%
by B####:

Difficulty is basically nothing

M70%
by M####:

This puzzle game is both relaxing and challenging. I really like it. But it should come with instructions or a tutorial at the beginning.

P70%
by P####:

There really isn't a puzzle aspect to this game. Each "puzzle" can be solved pretty much by just swiping randomly

X70%
by X####:

funny, adictive, not so easy as it seems, just finished it!

O70%
by O####:

It was fun! Gradual difficulty and simple introduction levels for new pieces. Enjoyed it a lot.

K70%
by K####:

Took a long time to beat. I'm so happy I found it. No bugs, solid concept.

H70%
by H####:

Really neat game, though the visual design of the interface is a little clunky and the ads can be invasive

N70%
by N####:

Just finished! Game gets challenging in the higher levels, but if you apply similar patterns you'll figure it out! Great game!

E70%
by E####:

All 200 levels are done. I was never bored and often challenged. This game requires that you look at each piece more than one way. Very fun. Would recommend to anyone that likes puzzles.

C70%
by C####:

Hard at times coupled with hitting the hint button accidentally can agitate you a bit; it was fun overall and I highly recommend it for those who need a casual puzzle game!

F70%
by F####:

The concept is quick to pick up but the game becomes progressively more challenging approaching the final 50 puzzles of the game, which are very satisfying to complete. Sometimes symmetry is part of the solution, sometimes not. Always fun!

Y70%
by Y####:

Seems easy at first but levels can take up to half hour towards the end.

J70%
by J####:

Good enough too play for 3/5 min. Smooth and fast. Ive finished the 200 levels... sad to be as easy and short...
