Palisade – Divide the Grid into Equal-Sized Areas – Puzzle Game



In Palisade, you are presented with a grid of squares, some of which contain numbers. Your goal is to subdivide the grid into contiguous regions, all of the same (given) size, such that each square containing a number is adjacent to exactly that many edges (including those between the inside and the outside of the grid).

Game modes:

  • 5×5 – regions of 5
  • 8×6 – regions of 6
  • 10×8 – regions of 8
  • 15×12 – regions of 10
  • Custom mode
