This game was created and coded by chatGPT with quite a bit of help from the (human) creator of the MATHLER game.

In other words, it was created by a human who kicked the dross ChatGPT trawled from StackOverflow into a slight semblance of shape.

The game is quite funny. The questio is how much cam from chatgpt, how much from the human and what games were used as source

Sumplete

Written by Daniel Tait on 3rd March 2023 (3 minute read).

Sumplete was invented and coded entirely by AI (ChatGPT).
Yeah, I’m not joking. After a few hours of prompting, the AI chatbot had created this unique puzzle game. ChatGPT not only came up with the idea, but also coded the game, designed it and even named it!

I first asked ChatGPT for some recommendations for a new puzzle game to play if I enjoyed playing Sudoku.

A solid list of results, but I was already familiar with all these puzzles. I wondered if ChatGPT could actually invent its own puzzle for me?

Yes it can! And an interesting first attempt. I asked it to invent some more.
On the 4th attempt it came up with this "Sum Delete puzzle" which I liked the look of. Could ChatGPT create me a playable version?

 30 seconds later I had a fully playable version of the puzzle in my browser. Incredible. I then asked to improve the design by adding some CSS.

 No problem. I spent the next few hours iterating the game with ChatGPT - adding new features and improving the design. We finally landed on the version that is playable today!

But is this actually an original puzzle? ChatGPT thinks so! Please email me if you have played something similar before.

Finally it needed a name. I thought it was only fair to let ChatGPT name its creation ... with a little guidance.

And that is how Sumplete was created in a few hours by ChatGPT. We hope you enjoy the puzzle!

Daniel Tait has created a few simple puzzles, including Mathler, Crosswordle, Dadagram. He's written quite a lot about the creation of Sumplete and where he thinks ChatGPT got the idea from.
