#51: Cell Blocks; Arrow Capsules; Overpath

Hello, and welcome to Puzzles for Progress! Today, I'm upgrading Cell Blocks (aka Shikaku) from 8x8 to 10x10 (it needed the space). Also, I've incorporated question-mark clues, which mean that there's a rectangle, but its exact size is a mystery. Suffice to say that it should be a little harder. But not too much harder! Today also marks the return of Arrow Capsules, which I was trying to make 8x8 like normal, but it needed an extra column on the left: always listen to what the puzzle is saying to you. A bit more difficult than last time. And I haven't even gotten to the Overpath, which is, like, also a bit more challenging. See, look, it's a theme.

Solve the puzzles using the following links:

Alternatively, here they are all on one page:

Cell Blocks is a puzzle, so it has a nice online version, though they insist on putting each clue in a black bubble for some reason. (This does have the upside of question-mark clues being able to just be black bubbles with no numbers.) Arrow Capsules is online with Penpa, but the Penpa gods looked down upon me today, so the answer check just did not work for some reason. So I disabled it. The Overpath puzzle is not available online.

And, as always, the answers:

Last week: The King's Tour; Slitherlink; Vowelless Crossword

Next week: Whirlpool; Slitherlink; Spiral

That's it from me. Until next time!
