Firstly I couldn’t be bothered. What can I say, maybe I’m lazy, maybe I just need the right motivation. But secondly, I think the shaded squares add a certain something to the aesthetic appeal of the puzzle over, let’s face it, is otherwise a rather barren looking grid.
Certainly, this is a different sort of solving experience going on here, working out the claustrophobic implications of the narrow passage ways than you’d see in your average Yajilin puzzle, but I think it must be reiterated that it’s an easy job to put these back into “standard” presentation.
But you’re probably getting bored reading all that, and would much prefer some puzzles to solve. Enjoy!
