Pearl Pentominous

I’ve been wanting to make a Pentominous puzzle for a while, and this is the result. The puzzle has a shift in difficulty towards the end, and that’s because I wanted to stick to the theme, and got bored searching through the alternatives. I like it as it is, though.

I wouldn’t be surprised if this variant already has a name, if so please tell me in the comments.

  • Divide the grid into pentominoes (continuous shapes made out of five cells).
  • No two pentominoes of the same shape may share an edge (even if they’re mirrored copies of each other), but touching by corners is allowed.
  • Every pentomino must contain exactly one pearl.
