▻Sudoku is Sudoku with Point System, Runs, and Online Leaderboards. Discover the next evolution of Sudoku with amazing graphics, animations, and ease of use. This is a Sudoku like one you have never experienced before ;)
...Thousands of puzzles, all free. Top class puzzles with selectable level of difficulty :)
To the classic Sudoku, we added:
=> A smart point system, wherein your score is based on 1) the value of each number multiplied (at the time of its match) by a multiplier that decreases in time and 2) the value of each block, row, column multiplied (at the time of its completion) by the decreasing multiplier
=> Thanks to Game Center, you can now rank and compare Sudoku scores and achievements against friends and strangers
=> ▻Sudoku also counts the runs, that is, each uninterrupted sequence of games won, and adds them to the online leaderboards
In ▻Sudoku, you win a game when you solve a puzzle with 3 errors or less (we used this threshold to give a bit of slack for mis-tapping :) Also, you have a number of hints to help you play (more at the easy, less at the hard level). To fit any taste, you can choose between a lush tile look or a more classic board look :)
You gain access to medium level after you win the easy level 2 times consecutively, same for hard level (3 times)

What's New in Version 2.8.3
MY MOST FAV GAME EVER!!!!!!
This is my most favorite game of all time! It's absolutely wonderful. I'm a UI (user interface) designer, and the UIs in all of your games are exceptional. In regards to this Sudoku game, I would LOVE to have an undo button added. I often accidentally touch a number next to the number I'm trying to touch which gives me an x each time which negatively impacts my score. In fact, it ruins the entire game for me and I have to end the game and start a new one. The iPhone screen is extremely sensitive, so this accident happens all the time since my fingertips are flat and wide. If the developers of this game wish to make this app the best Sudoku game available, then I suggest allowing an undo option. It would also be very nice if the score was way more detailed. I would love to be able to see the time for each game as well as the overall best time in the score upon completion of each game similar to the way you score time in your Solitaire app. The more score details the better, as I strive to beat my own best time/score! How can I beat a time I'm not even aware that was the best time thus far out of all previously played games? Please consider making these changes. Thank you SOOOOOOOO much for listening to your game players, taking our requests seriously and for making the most TOTALLY AWESOME iPhone app games available!!! I am just as addicted to your Solitaire game and absolutely love it! Keep up the good work!!! :)
Overall, the design is beautiful and UX is decent with the game, not to mention it does a fine job at distracting me from responsibilities and boring segments on the television. HOWEVER, I don't know if other people are experiencing the same issues that I am, but on the rare occasion (about once every other game), I select a number to enter the specified square, and the game says "negatory captain," and tarnishes my perfect game with a nasty check mark. BUT when I try the seemingly ill-fated number again, the game reconsiders my proposition and finally determines that I my decision was a wise one indeed (for which I already knew, however the momentary self-doubt caused by the check of rejection cost dear seconds to the impending, apathetic timer).
All jest aside, this is an actual problem I'm encountering—so many times that I have validated that it's not my lack of hand-eye coordination, but rather a glitch. Along similar lines, it is annoying that when I go to select a square while another is being filled by my previous move, that the new square will deselect itself as I fetch the appropriate number. I should probably turn off any special move-effects that are programmed to prevent this from happening, but I figured these little notes are helpful.
I have tried many Sudoku apps and this is by far my favorite. I love the default wood tiles that look like real scrabble tiles and the ease of playing is very much appreciated with clear and simple tools. At first I missed the auto add notes feature that most other apps have but it really does help to do your own notes while playing to get a better handle on what's going on, it does take more time but is much better than the newspaper puzzles which get so messy.
One thing though, this game doesn't let you put in an incorrect entry, great in avoiding the frustration of finding out at the end of a puzzle that you messed up somewhere, but it can tend to make you lazy in the process of figuring out those very hard ones because you can solve the expert ones easily with only one strike. In a normal expert or advanced puzzle I would not be able to do it. Expert Sudoku solvers would definitely find this process too easy but I'm not an expert so for me it is perfect!
