High Rise

High Rise puzzles are a combination of the more familiar Suguru puzzle together with a skyscraper element, which requires the solver to imagine being positioned at the end of a row or column viewing a set of skyscrapers, some of which obscure the skyscrapers behind them due to their height.

The puzzle was invented by Trevor Truran in September 2018. He was compiling several puzzle types simultaneously, which inspired him to come up with the hybrid puzzle Skyscraper Suguru. As this was deemed to be a bit of a mouthful, he renamed the puzzle High Rise.


Fill the grid so that each cell in an outlined block contains a digit. A block of two cells contains the digits 1 and 2; a block of three cells contains the digits 1, 2 and 3; and so on. No same digit appears in neighbouring cells, not even diagonally.

Each digit inside the grid represents the height of a skyscraper in that cell. Each clue outside the grid represents the number of skyscrapers that can be seen from that point, looking along the adjacent row or column. Taller skyscrapers hide shorter ones.
