LOVE this game!


This app is super easy to use, with plenty of puzzles at each of 5 difficulty levels. I really like the pencil mode to keep track of the possibilities for each square. I have found a couple puzzles so far (I think) that had 2 solutions. When using the hint suggestions, not all combinations will be listed, if there are too many of them. This is resolved when you are able to start filling in some known values.

Suggestions: When solving this type of puzzle with paper and pencil, I like to write notes in the margin like -4, which would mean all digits are used except a 4; it would be nice (but probably too cumbersome) for this bit of programming to be added in future releases. Also, if one square has choices of 1&3, for example, and these force the next square to have choices of 4&2, it would be helpful if you could choose where to place the digits while in pencil mode. I.e., put the 1 and 4 in the upper left corners of their squares and put the 3 and 2 in the lower right corners of their squares, to help you see better which choices belong together.

Excellent Implementation


I tried buying paperback versions of this game and used many tablets jotting down and crossing out combos. It became so tedious I quit playing until saw this application. I love it! The application still make solving the puzzles challenging while removing the tedium. I find this applications implementation remarkable in its simplicity of use and appearance.
2nd Review:
I've yet to encounter any bugs while playing. As for the game itself, after 80+ at each difficulty, I continually find myself going back for more. Sure, I'd love to have quick times solving them, but sometimes just solving is enough.

Fun game, buggy


Kakuro is fun and this is a pretty good app for it, but whenever you click a banner notification, receive a phone call, or get a pop-up notification (low battery, calendar, etc), the app's display becomes unresponsive and you have to hit the home button to goto your home screen and then double-click the home button to select Real Kakuro again to make it un-freeze.
Annoying if you frequently get phone calls or calendar notifications or if you want to see what the banner notification is trying to tell you (new email, etc).
