    chessgm8, in puzzles 1,2, and 4, the correct move should be 4. Qg7#, not capturing the queen (although it's tempting) or going to h6 first. 

    Oops...nice catch!

    Yeah, and they they should all have Qxg2+, Rg8+, and Rg1+ since they're all the same mate.  In fact, puzzle 1 is just the other 3 with the rook sac already made.  Maybe find a way to make the knight move the start of the puzzle.

    You ned to make it much less predictable, look for the "obvious" check, Queen sac or both, 90% of the you're home free.  And make it where you either fail or solve, none of this for example, three of four moves quickly and gain points, do to plus percentage.

    @kosakarika After 1...Nf2, White can avoid immediate mate by giving up (a lot of) material. There seems to be a more forcing solution:

    1...Qh4+ 2. g3 Nxg3 3. Qc2 Ne4+ (or 3...Nxh1+) 4. Kd1 Nf2+ 5. Ke1 Nd3+ 6. Kd1 Qe1#

    Yes, I realised later there is a more forcing line.

    I have a question that doesn't seem to be answered anywhere else. I'm not sure where to ask this, but here goes: How do I find the source game for a tactic? Posts from a few years ago seem to mention a "View Analysis and Source" button but I can't find that anywhere on my interface. I sometimes see people mentioning the source games, but would like to find them for myself without randomly combing databases. Thanks to anyone who can tackle this.

    Analysis is in the top right of your screen. Sooume of them have a link to the source game, but not many.
