Difference Between Kakuro and Sudoku

Kakuronoun

(games) A type of number puzzle, similar to a crossword but with numbers. Each "clue" is the sum of the digits to be placed in its group of squares, and no digit can be repeated within a group.

Sudokunoun

A puzzle in which a grid consisting of several regions is to be filled with numbers so that every row, column, and region contains only one instance of each number. The most common format is a grid of nine rows and columns that are divided into nine smaller regions of three rows and three columns into which the numbers 1 through 9 must be placed.

Sudokunoun

A type of puzzle whose completion requires each of typically nine rows and columns and each of as many usually square subregions to contain, without duplication, the digits from 1 to 9 (or the grid dimension).
