Walkthrough

 Step 1This is the start of the puzzle, we're given the <3>s as initial clues.Solve this puzzle for yourself at the same time. Step 2There is only one way to fulfil these two squares 3 > 2 > 1. Step 3This could be either 3 > 1, or 3 > 2, but we've already got the <2> in Column 2, so it must be 3 > 1. Step 4In Row 1 the remaining square must be <4>. In Column 2 the remaining square must also be <4>. Step 5As we've already got the <3> in Column 4 and the <4> in Row 4, there is only one way to complete these two squares, 2 > 1. Step 6The only missing number for Row 4 is <3>. Step 7The <1> in Row 2 can only go here (as there is already a <1> in Column 1 and Column 3). Step 8The <4> in Column 4 must go here. Step 9The <3> from Row 3 must go here (as there is already a <3> in Column 1). Step 10The puzzle completes as both Row 3 and Column 3 have one remaining number. Which leaves the last <4> to complete Row 2 / Column 1. Step 11The completed puzzle.
