Absolutely loved the break in, and the logic throughout was very pretty.

Absolutely brilliant. One of my all-time favourites. I especially liked the break in and how the puzzle disambiguates at the end. Thanks!

Miraculously good ! Loved the chain of deduction you need to make before you even start putting anything in the grid ! Thanks.

Fantastic puzzle! Fresh and varied logic throughout the entire solve.

Wow, what I cool idea! Took me a while to understand the path logic (initially I thought of snake logic), but I really enjoyed the deductions along the path and had a great time solving the puzzle!

Simply brilliant. This is one of the first Cracking the Cryptic puzzles I've seen through to the end on my own, and the logic is absolutely beautiful the entire way through. It took a little bit of breaking the world to figure out that I had made an incorrect assumption, and I'm not sure if I really solved the other path with proper logic, but either way I was floored the entire time with how seamlessly Xendari guides the solver through their maze. "Take a bow," as Simon would say.

I'm actually surprised at how you managed to make this one work so wonderfully, and there're lots of surprising moments that made me excited till the very end. Very well done there Xendari ;)

A wonderful puzzle. An absolute joy to solve. Got a bit stuck when reached box 2, but a beautiful piece of logic got me through. Thanks a lot for sharing.

Beautiful puzzle - a joy to solve. Thought I had broken it twice only to spot what I had missed after a bit of thought.

Beautiful construction, highly recommend it as well!

Wow that was incredible fun! The way the entire solve neatly unraveled with each deduction was fantastic and showed the master-level setting that went into creating it. I would definitely recommend giving this one a try! :)

A work of art

Awesome puzzle! I first spent two hours thinking it was an extremely relentless, monstrous puzzle, but in the end it's a very approachable and fun puzzle when you solve it with the correct ruleset in mind. I first thought that I was gonna find a standard kind of path (one cell wide, non branching etc.), and that worked out really horribly for me xD

To clarify, does "3x3 box" mean a box centered at the circle?
Also, "Within each 3x3 box, orthogonally connected groups of shaded cells must sum to N, where N is the same for all boxes." I don't totally understand. Does this mean that the orthogonally connected cells within a 3x3 box sum to a N or a multiple of N? How does this "Orthogonally connected groups of shaded cells within the same box sum to N individually." differ from the former rule?
Hi, the circles ‘3x3 box’ count is the sudoku boxes - i.e., r7c7 could reference r8c9 but not r6c7.
The second part of the rule is standard for region sum lines but probably overkill here. If N was 8, and there’s one orthogonally connected group in a box, it sums to 8 - and if there were two orthogonally connected groups, they both sum to 8 individually.
Got it. Thanks!
