For methodical minds, Hanjie is an absorbing and rewarding puzzle. You have both the satisfaction of successfully solving a purely logical puzzle, and the pleasure of seeing a pixelated picture form before your eyes as the squares of a grid are filled in.
Deducing the location of shaded squares is prompted by the number clues around the grid, hence the puzzle's description as a form of 'painting by numbers'.
