The Grid Master

On holiday this year, same as last year, I downloaded a few puzzle games for my phone. One of them was Einstein Grid Master by Kerelize. (You can find it in the Android Play Store.)

The game consists of a 10 by 10 grid in which the user clicks on various cells to place the next digit, starting at 1. The goal of the game is to fill the entire grid with numbers 1 through 100. However, you can’t just place the digits anywhere, you have limited possibilities to place the next digit.

After playing for a while, I decided that instead of endlessly trying various possibilities, I’d write a little program to do this for me 🙂

Solution

The program is a little bare bones and only does some basic checking to determine whether continuing the chosen path has a possibility of coming to a solution, but it was fun to do anyway. On to the next puzzle I’m too lazy to solve by hand 😉
