More than one way to solve a board

C.Ichiban

After my previous favorite Tap Sudoku stopped getting updates, I tried a half dozen apps before finally finding this one, where I could enter the number first then the cell. This speeds up your ability to play and is really a must, but most apps don’t offer it. After one game, I was pleasantly surprised at how the game also keeps your top 10 times. Neat! However, after playing 5-6 times (on “extreme” naturally bc I’m an addict), I came to a point when I realized there were no certain moves left. Thinking I may have missed a hint, and being nervous about the ticking clock, I guessed and it worked. But this continued to happen and I realized these are not true sudoku boards. A TRUE SUDOKU BOARD HAS ONLY ONE WAY TO SOLVE THE PUZZLE. The boards in this app offer several. This is problematic bc you are required to make 50/50 guesses (which often both work) in order to complete the puzzle. There’s no logic as to which 50/50 cells have one or two possibilities. Therefore, there is a new component of luck introduced, and that’s just not sudoku. I love the other features and gameplay functions but I’m not sure I can support this unfortunate flaw in the game itself.

Developer Response

Hello. Thank you for writing.

Is it possible that when you come to a point where there are "no certain moves left", it is simply because _you_ don't see the next logical move?

The fact that your guess turned out to be correct does not mean that there are several possible solutions. It just means you guessed correctly.

Regarding your claim that when making a 50/50 guess both often work, this is simply not true. Our puzzles have one and only one solution. If you'd actually taken one guess and followed it to a solution, then the other one would not result in a solution and vise versa.

Again, when you say "there's no logic as to which 50/50 cells have one or two possibilities", is it possible that you simply don't see the logic?

Allow me to reiterate: every puzzle has one and only one solution. There is no guessing
required and the puzzles are solvable with logic alone.

If you come across a puzzle where you are unable to deduce the next logical move, you may find it useful to post it to our forums and someone from the community might be able to help to guide you to the next move (http://www.genina.com/forums/show/1.page). Or, if all else fails, you may send us a screenshot and we will have a look (sudoku@genina.com).

Colour coded numbers and auto signals

StephenJSpace

This is my personal favourite version of sudoku. One thing the bothers me about this game is the amount of time to ‘set up’ if you will and the auto fill option really helps me maintain my sanity.

That being said I think that colour coded numbers would be nice. Right now when you select a number that has already been filed in all other potential possibilities that have been notated are blue, this is nice but how about colorising those notated numbers - say all 1’s are blue, the 2’s are... green, the 4’s... red, etc.

Further it would be nice to have an extra button - auto signals - or AS where when clicked will automatically fill in all cells with the corresponding number where only one possible number is notated for said cell.

Right now, using the current automation features currently available I can solve an extreme puzzle in about 3 minutes, if I really hustle but I find myself spending more than half of that time selecting cells and typing numbers and over half of those cells end up with only one possibility witch kinda makes me feel that I’m wasting a lot of time moving my fingers around the screen superfluously. If I could eliminate this I think I could solve it in under a minute.

This is otherwise a great app.

Excellent brain game!!!

I love the challenges of Sudoku. It is a very good brain exercise. I’ve always loved number and solving Sudoku has become addictive for me. When I first saw it, I became curious and observed someone playing the game. It was explained to me by a coworker and I tried it. I begin purchasing Sudoku magazines and looking for them in newspapers and magazines. Then, I found them on the internet. I started off easy and now I am at the extreme level. Each night I exercise my brain for an hour or so. I always try to beat my best time. I have my own method of solving these challenging brain puzzles. By the way, I am a 73 year old lady that believes that keeping the mind sharp is extremely important. Thanks!!!
