From WPC unofficial wiki


Place a digit 1-9 into each empty cell. The number in a grey cell indicates the sum of the digits placed in cells the adjoining arrow passes through. The digits within an arrow must be placed in ascending order (the highest digit is at the sharp end of the arrow). No digits may repeat within a row/column.
