(16.) Battleships

Whoops, it’s been a couple of weeks since the last post. Oh well.

To start off the new year (it’s midnight right now 38 minutes ago here in Finland), here’s a Battleships puzzle. It’s the first one I’ve made, and I’m not good at all with the genre… regardless, I think the puzzle turned out well with a strong theme, and it isn’t easy, either.

Regular Battleship rules, with the standard fleet.

EDIT: The puzzle was broken, it should be fixed now. Not a very promising start to this year :^(

(13., 14.) Slitherlink

Gimmick puzzles! Here’s a pair of not-entirely-easy Slitherlinks.

If you cut the first Slitherlink into four 5×5-sized quadrants, then inflate each quadrant (each pair of adjacent cells will be pushed one cell apart, so the inflated quadrant takes up a 9×9 square), and then interleave them back together, you get another valid puzzle, the second Slitherlink.

Regular Slitherlink rules.

EDIT: I somehow completely forgot that Slitherlink uses a dot grid, not dashed lines. Fixed.
