Rules: Regional Akari

This genre was developed by Naoki Inaba.

Place one lightbulb in each blackbordered region, so that every cell in the grid is illuminated by at least one lightbulb. Lightbulbs illuminate all cells they can see in a horizontal and vertical direction. Black cells block their sight. No two lightbulbs can illuminate eachother.


  1. I see more similarity with Star Battle than with Akari. Maybe "Akari - Star Battle" hybrid would be an accurate naming.

    1. It has the same basic structure as Akari. Both genres you have to place lightbulbs to illuminate all squares, which can't illuminate eachother. Except instead of numbers there are regions.
