Sudoku Game Review for Android/iOS
|Platforms||Android 3.0+; iOS 6.0+|
Sudoku is one of the simplest and most enjoyable puzzle games. Despite what people may think, it actually does not involve math, only simple common sense. All you need are a pen and paper and a few lines. But with the Sudoku app, you don’t even need that anymore. Simply your phone ready and you can enjoy a game of Sudoku. This app is a digital version of the classic puzzle game, but with many more features. It lets people enjoy a great game and challenge their brain cells with a great puzzle.
The game is pretty much the same from the classic paper game. There are 81 squares and you must fill each horizontal and vertical line with a number from 1 to 9. These numbers should also be represented in each 3×3 box. At first it sounds like a very challenging feat, but once you get the hang of it, you’ll be looking for the next puzzle. There are several levels of play in the app, from beginner, all the way to expert. Once you’ve gotten your beak wet with a few beginner games, you’re sure to look for a more challenging puzzle.
The highlight feature also fills out once you have selected a square. This gives you an idea of the numbers to keep track of and the lines and squares that are included in your solution. It a really helpful features that you wouldn’t be able to get in the traditional game. There is also pencil mode where you can place a number temporarily and erase it if it doesn’t fit. If you are really having a hard time, you can also tap on the hint button for a helpful reminder of the next step.
The game has many different features including your choice of difficulty levels. There are also daily challenges and unique trophies to earn. Not only does the game keep track of all the puzzles you solve (there are over 5,000), but it also times you and keeps track of your personal best. You can enable Auto-check to see if you have filled in the correct number, and you can also set how many mistakes you can make in one game.
One of the best features has to be the screen color adjustment. With most puzzles, you will spend several minutes staring at the screen. This can be taxing on your eyes. There is night mode which reverses the colors of the Sudoku pad, making it easier to solve the puzzles even when you’ve been staring at the same number and lines for a long while.
The beauty of the game of Sudoku is in its simplicity. It’s a very simple game that presents very challenging puzzles. This simplicity was taken into heart with the design of this game/app. The design is simple yet elegant, and despite the many different features, you won’t get lost navigating your way through the game for the game and difficulty of your choice. As far as brain teasers go, Sudoku is one of the best puzzle games out there, and it has just been made available on your mobile device.
