There are four difficulties to choose from.
Here you can find UPDATED information regarding the required solving techniques for each difficulty. They are not identical to what I earlier posted for Samurai.
All four difficulties are variations of the same puzzle, i.e. they have identical solutions.

EDIT:
This time I personally found the Apprentice version a bit too easy, so in the future I will probably try to notch it up a bit, unless feedback tells me not to do so.

A) Novice.
B) Apprentice (mainstream edition).
C) Master.
D) Guru (I checked and chains only is possible, but fun?).
