Tapa is quite nice puzzle and getting famous like Sudoku. There is now weekly Tapa Variation Contest. I have created some of the Tapa puzzles for the practice of this contest. This is new puzzle variation related to this type.

"Outside Sum Tapa" Instructions:

Marked cells contains the clue for the Tapa puzzle. Outside numbers denotes the sum of the clues in the corresponding row/column. Each marked cell contains only one number. Find the number in the marked cells and solve the Tapa puzzle.

Paint some squares black to create a continuous wall. Number/s in a square indicate the length of black cell blocks on its neighbouring cells. If there is more than one number in a square, there must be at least one white cell between the black cell blocks. Painted cells cannot form a 2x2 square or larger. There are no wall segments on cells containing numbers.
