"One of iPhone top 5. I'm totally addicted to this game. I'm not a big sudoku fan, but I love this game." -nottahick

Shinro is a fun and addictive puzzle that tests your problem solving skills. If you like sudoku, you will love Shinro!

A Shinro puzzle consists of an 8x8 board, arrows and numbers on each row and column. The objective of the game is to place 12 holes in the puzzle. But it is not that simple. The numbers on each row and column are the number of holes you must place on the respective rows and columns. Makes sense? Well, there is more. To spice things up, there are arrows on the puzzle. Each arrow must be pointing to at least one hole. The puzzle will be solved once all 12 holes are placed on the right place.

Shinro offers 4000 puzzles in 4 different modes:
*EASY : On this mode you will be able to solve the puzzle using nothing but technique. No guessing required!

*MEDIUM: Technique is only going to get you so far. At a certain point, 1 educated guess will be required to continue!

*HARD: Just like on medium, a guess will be required. But now you will need 2 educated guesses in order to solve these puzzles!

*NIGHTMARE: Nightmare mode is not for the faint of heart. Three guesses will be required to solve these. For the ultimate puzzle crusher, nightmare mode is a must!

Shinro also keeps track of your statistics! For all modes, it records your record times, number of puzzles completed, total game play time and much more! Check it out!

Happy puzzling!

Great Game!

It's a graphic sudoku and it's much more friendly to the eye to play. Don't let the game discourage you when you first play it. Follow the instructions and in a short time you'll see how addictive these puzzles can be. I like the originality compared to numerous repeats of the same type of game.

Beautiful and challenging

Marvelous app. For about the price of a soft drink in a fast food restaurant I have had many hours of entertainment. Beautifully done and works flawlessly.
