Puzzle #35: Slitherlink; No Touch
These shifted square clue patterns I always like. I've employed it in many puzzle types. It doesn't work for everything as it always leaves a lot of room. With this type it works really well, as the clues give extra information for many of the unclued squares. I think this one worked out well, although the left bottom is tricky.
Rules for Slitherlink
As an extra rule, none of the given clues share a border with a square that has the same value. This only goes for the given clues, not the remaining squares.
