I designed this puzzle to see how Ruudiculously hard a killer can be.

All I can guarantee is that it has a unique solution...
Don't waste your time trying to solve it by logic.
It's only good to test performance of a solver program.
Ruud ?
It took my program several days to solve Exclamation

Is that line on the bottom a formal puzzle description? If so, how does it work?

In the meantime, I drastically improved my solver. It now takes 10 seconds to solve !

It's the killer format used by Djape's Perfect Sudoku. here is a description of the format. Other software also adopted this format, incl. JSudoku & SumoCue
