Hashi (also know as Hashiwokakero and Bridges) is an addictive, relaxing and engaging logic puzzle.
A summary of the rules appears below:
1. Construct bridges between islands such that each island has the proper number of bridges attached to it.
2. Bridges can placed in a horizontal or vertical orientation and may not overlap.
3. You can have at most two bridges directly connecting one island to another.
4. The network of bridges must connect each island to every other island. In other words,
if you pick any island in the puzzle you should be able to "walk" from it to any other island by travelling
over the bridges.
It couldn't be much simpler than that. And yet, hidden behind these simplistic rules you'll find some devilishly challenging puzzles. Or, if casual puzzling is more your speed, the small puzzles will nicely satisfy your cravings without tying your brain in knots.
Speaking of brains, Hashi includes a Daily Challenge to keep you mentally sharp. The Daily Challenge tracks your best score over different time periods allowing you to compete against a very worthy adversary: yourself.
We hope you enjoy Hashi. If you have suggestions on how we can improve Hashi, or any of our other products, feel free to contact using the Hashi Support link below.

Fast games; not difficult
The puzzles aren't too difficult, but not dead simple, and they don't take very long - almost always between 20 and 50 seconds - but that's a good thing if you're looking for a quick diversion.
What an absolutely awful game. First of all, it's poorly designed. It's very difficult to connect two numbers together, which makes for a very unpleasant and frustrating experience for the user. Secondly, the puzzles themselves are garbage. They are so easy a five year old could solve them in seconds. The puzzles are probably generated using a really dumb algorithm, so it doesn't incorporate any of the nuances of difficulty of real Hashi. Finally, what's up with the coin system? It seems like it was tacked on as an afterthought - another element of poor game design.
This app isn't even worth the zero dollars I paid for it. The designers should pay YOU to play their awful horrible interpretation of Hashi. If I could, I would give this app a negative star rating.
Only hashi game I play
Every other hashi on iOS eventually gives you puzzles that require trial and error to solve (as opposed to applying logic to current state to determine next step). I like the daily challenge to solve 3 small puzzles as quickly as I can and the fact that there are multiple puzzle sizes to choose from
