March Mutant 25: Adam's Grapple (total / no numbers)

Draw a single loop that connects the grid cells. The loop may only travel horizontally or vertically, and never diagonally (so all turns are of 90 degrees). The loop may only turn at the centers of grid cells, and may not cross itself or branch off. The loop must pass through and turn in every cell with a question mark, and the two line segments which meet at such a cell must be the same length. A question mark has been placed in every cell which could legally contain one.
You know this puzzle is of good quality because I made it in late 2010 (judging by its location in my pad of graph paper) and never bothered to publish it for over a year! Happy Quantity Not Quality Month! Hope you weren't too attached to the concept of having numbers in a logic puzzle!

That was fun. So much fun. Wonderful logic used to make it work.

Good stuff. Little bit of a one-trick puzzle to get it started but it was fun to do these two back to back and explore the full extent of the rule that "A question mark has been placed in every cell which could legally contain one."

Thanks.

Agree, very nice puzzle here. I like the layers of new concepts revealed when progressing through the different varieties of this type.
