## Shikaku meets a loop

(Published on 22. June 2018, 11:51 by DarkBeamIta)

This is a Shikaku, but with a little bonus; you also have one (not two or more!) unclued loop.

The loop itself can touch the border, but never branches, crosses neither "touches" itself - including diagonal touch or occupying a 2x2 square, and of course never intersects with the squares/rectangles.

This is a sample image for you ;)

This is the actual puzzle.

Solution code: Number of shapes NOT touched by the loop, X, total area of shapes NOT touched by the loop, X, number of 90° turns made by the loop.

Added "never branches" just to over-clarify. And I hope there's no multiple solution this time >:( ;)
