▻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 4.2
This is an absolute must if you are a sudoku fan. It has four different playing levels, one that can certainly work for you. You can place the possible numbers in each square (your notes), and have each square automatically adjusted when you determine one of the numbers in an adjacent square. You can also turn off that feature if you want. If you click on any number on the board, it highlights all the squares where that number has been correctly identified up to that point, and in a lighter color, shows you the other possible squares that could be that number, based on your notes. To be considered an expert in each game, you can have as many as three wrong errors in each game. It then keeps track of your winning streak as an expert. If you have more than three errors, the streak is over, and it starts a new winning streak. To me, that makes it more competitive. Not only is the app fun to use, but you try to keep your winning streak going. There is also an option if you are really stuck, where it will give you one correct square. I don't use that, but it's there if you want it. You can choose various colors and tile styles. I have set aside my sudoku books and I use this app exclusively
Excellent solid no crashing and very few ads but be warned this game will make your dog bite you, your wife file for divorce, and your children sue for emancipation! I have one issue with it - the tiles are very small on iPhone and my thumbs are fat enough that it makes it difficult to tap the correct tile each time so frequently I will put the wrong number in the wrong box accidentally. I guess it's not their fault that my thumbs are too big and my head is too small. They give you an easy way to pencil in and your pencil marks disappear automatically when you find the correct box for that number. You can play against others online if you choose or you can just sit in a slouched position over your phone for hours at a time developing your hunchback while trying to solve these fiendishly hard puzzles.
In the words of Inigo Montoya "let me esplain, no there is no time, I sum up" – It is a great app if you want to wind up dogless, wifeless, childless, deformed and possibly penniless, while enjoying every second of it. bring it on.
My stats page reports my total time at 137:00:38. I thoroughly enjoy this game! I appreciate the "note taking" function that makes it easy to narrow the options for each cell, but somebody else made an awesome suggestion I heartily second: please add the option to "select" multiple cells simultaneously in note-making mode. As another reviewer mentioned, sometimes I also experience the game marking my move wrong (X) when I HAVE selected the right box and correct digit. It bums me out to abandon a game to preserve my winning streak, but that glitch usually happens "in pairs" during a single game so if I've already made an actual mistake, I'll quit the game instead of risk breaking my streak based on "machine malfunction" while I can happily lose based on "operator error."
THANKS for all the hours of fun--I'm obviously playing even with the existing "issues" but a few fixes and I'll be joining that other reviewer--divorced, dog-less, unemployed, utterly addicted to this game. :)
