Whereas sudoku has only one rule: each number must be unique in the row/column/grid. The towers game adds another rule:
Consider the numbers in the grids as height of towers, the numbers on the edge of the grids represents how many towers you can see from there (you cannot see a lower tower behind a taller one).
The addition of this rule make the game much more interesting, and harder. It takes me half an hour to crack a 7x7 game.
Don't take my word for it, try it yourself.

I got the same result as phil .. in under 2 minutes.. it took longer to color the excel fields and setup the grid ;) to make it look pretty...

I liked that puzzle, got it, but did take me a bit longer than Yodell.
