(23.) Tapa / Pata

I was hoping to make a puzzle with a perfectly symmetrical clue layout, the asymmetry stemming from the Tapa/Pata division, but try as I might, I couldn’t get this one to work satisfactorily. I’ll probably revisit this kind of puzzle, but for now it shall do.

By the way, do these kind of puzzles that combine many puzzle styles, have a name for themselves? I’d hesitate to call them hybrids, since each section is vanilla on its own.

023 Tapata

Regular Tapa and Pata rules. The clues on the left side are Tapa clues, while the clues on the right are Pata clues.
