Thanks to this game i finally get how to play this It's really challenging You wouldn't be bored
Great Sudoku game
by Azam K. on 2019/05/19 14:19
I ended up purchasing the game because the ads were way too long. With ads, it’s more of a 3 star experience. I’m no opponent to ads, just that when they are 60 seconds long, it really disrupts the gameplay. I’d just add two things to make this a 5 star game: 1) Add a redo button. If undo is pressed accidentally or once too many times, it’s often hard to remember exactly what the last move was, especially if it was a note on an Expert board. 2) Add a way to cancel out of hints without seeing the solution all the way through. I love that the first screen just points out a focus area. But there’s no way to stop there and figure the rest out yourself. You are required to see the solution all the way through. Thanks and keep up the great work!
Addicting!

Great mind bending game that you’ll get better at all the time. I play 4 or five a day. Only flaws are the occasional commercials which won’t let you back to the game unless you give up your email or purchase something. I’ve had to delete the game and reinstall it twice in the past few weeks, and lost all history and daily challenge scores.
I dislike the new hint system.
by Magnet_Girl on 2019/05/19 07:29
I love sudoku, but like a lot of people sometimes I need help, and I used to like the hint system a lot. The old system was you select a box and when you press ‘hint’ it would fill in that specific box; now the new system just randomly fills in a box that I didn’t select and didn’t need a hint on! I think it’s cute that it explains why is would be that number, but it’s explaining it for boxes I didn’t want help with! If I wanted to have help for that box I would select that one!
Too Many Ads
by Stephanie2678732 on 2019/05/19 03:02
Not only do you have to watch an ad before your game, but you have to watch another after each game as well.

App freezes up
by MJA76432688 on 2019/05/18 17:12
I enjoy this app! However, it started freezing up this week. If I don't tap the screen for a a few seconds, it freezes. I have to close the app and open a different app before the soduko app will unfreeze. Please advise about what to do.

Too Much Fun In One Place!
by Kitty Catty Chatty on 2019/05/18 05:55
TigerLady-June 16, 2018 I absolutely love this game! Every time I play, I’m challenging my brain and it’s so much fun. Right now I can do easy and medium, but I’m working my way to hard! UPDATE-January 2, 2019 I honestly don’t care for the new update of the game. I still love playing game, but the change needs getting used to, I’m not one for changing things. Please don’t change anything else!!! UPDATE-May 10, 2019 I’m so disappointed in whoever makes the changes! You’ve changed this gaming app and not for the better! It’s as if you’re teaching me how to play this game for the very first time! I’m not a child and I don’t appreciate the way you’ve changed the game. I truly wish you had asked for input from all of your loyal players! This would be great for new players, but for myself it’s frustrating and demeaning! It’s comes across as if you’re teaching idiot’s! I am not an idiot!!! I use to love playing this game! If you don’t or won’t change the game back to the way it was, then you leave me no alternative than to just delete this gaming app and go to another gaming app! If I could, you wouldn’t get any star’s! I’m going to suggest to all of my Facebook friends who play this game, to do as I am and delete you!!! I’m giving you one week to change this game back or I’m definitely deleting this gaming app!!! UPDATE-May 19, 2019 I’m so pleased that you contacted me about my last update. Thank you so very much, you heard what I was saying and you responded quickly and I thank you for that! For everyone who reads reviews, please note that I was contacted and received an answer to my inquiry! Yes the new changes through me for a loop, but I was given a quick and easy way to play my games as before. All I had to do was go to the games settings, stroll down to hints and make the switch. Please note that our reviews are read and answered if needed. I’m so happy to give you 5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ stars! Thank you again!!!
Quit “Improving”
by LisaJ1960 on 2019/05/18 02:49
I loved this game until the most recent update. You tried to improve the ‘hint’ function and totally screwed it up. It’s confusing, plus it doesn’t fill in the cell I select. Go back to the previous version.

Not bad
by Zackismet on 2019/05/17 19:16
Shouldn’t tell you when you make mistakes. Love the organization elements and design, but “lives” to play is kinda dumb. I guess it’s not a bad way to monetize this, though.
App is excellent except the hint mechanism
by ashernorton on 2019/05/17 13:08
I’ve been using this app for at least two years (hey, I want that trophy at the end of the month/year!) and it has been appealingly consistent with updates and the ad placement doesn’t bother me in the slightest. That being said, for the first time in years, I have an issue: your new hint mechanism is...well, it’s definitely not at all good. I don’t use it for the helpful function: occasionally, there are boxes with no numbers in it, or an off-combination of numbers that gives me anxiety, and previously, I could use the hint function to make that easier for my brain to handle. Now I can’t do that — it arbitrarily fills in a ‘helpful’ block when I need the help function to alleviate the stress and anxiety due to an off box, and now I can’t even really play my daily challenges (my absolute favourite part of this app) because my brain literally can’t complete a puzzle with an empty box or off-combination set of numbers. I still play, but when I get another puzzle with those same things, I have to put down the app for days before starting a brand new game (and I hate leaving things unfinished). Maybe an option to turn the new hint function on and off? I totally understand why the hint feature has been updated in this way, because it teaches sudoku methods and rules while helping out, but for someone with autism and OCD, I personally can’t handle the new hint mechanism and I would really appreciate the option to toggle that hint mechanism off. So three stars at the moment, because this is still the best sudoku app I’ve found, even if it isn’t working for me very much any longer.

Best time
by SCWalkRunner on 2019/05/17 09:34
I enjoy playing the daily puzzles every.single.day and like that I can make a mistake every now and then without having to start over. The only feature that I find irritating is that the “best time” is far too often 5:05 which seems unlikely. I would love a ranking/ top ten on this page for the daily puzzles especially. Thanks!
Cool but
by morqve on 2019/05/17 04:22
I prefer the old hit system, where I could select a spot and just fill it. Also, it shout be more customizable
Paid to remove ads but still have ads
by Snag234987 on 2019/05/17 04:10
I paid the $5 in-app for “remove ads” but I’m still getting ads. They are fewer and less invasive but still ads. For a $5 app I don’t want ads especially when I specifically paid to remove them. I tried to get a refund but was denied because apple deemed the reason didn’t qualify. This is a good sudoku app but now when I play I’m always going to be upset that I didn’t get what I paid for.

Nothing but repeat ads, not worth your time.
Numbers

The numbers are too close together for an I phone. We have to wait 30 seconds for a mis selection of letters due to the board’s error. Thanks
Great to terrible.
by StevenGrieves. on 2019/05/16 06:55
This game was fantastic. But they changed their hint mechanism and made it terrible. We’re competent and understand that game, the intention of the hint was so that we don’t have to do the tedious work of running through every single box and line to figure out the single piece.
Really Fun Sudoku App!!!
by tennisquuenie on 2019/05/16 03:35
Easy to use. More fun than a pencil and paper version! And the app allows u to challenge yourself by timing your games.
Ads trying to take your money
by Philly4445 on 2019/05/16 02:02
I clicked on an ad and it looked predatory. I am sure they deceive elderly people of their money. What a great business model.
Disappointed on the changes to hints.
by MeCOTA on 2019/05/16 01:37
Will probably replace this game with another sudoku due to changes in hints. Loved this game until this change. I don’t use notes in the whole puzzle but have to shut down the game to prevent auto fill of hints. Bad update 😢
Annoying Ad
by Scuba8888888 on 2019/05/16 01:03
I am fine that you have to run Ads. I know that is how you pay for the development of the game. But you have an Advertisement that sits on the bottom and continuously blinks on an envelope icon. That is soooooo annoying especially when playing a game that requires concentration like this one. The Ad doesn’t even say what it is for unless I click on it and I don’t want to give them that satisfaction. If you don’t stop running this Ad I will have to stop playing the game. If you get rid of that Ad, I will give you 5 stars because I do like the app. UPDATE- I just lowered my score to one star. When I do NOT like the change you made to hints. I know how to play, some times I’m just tired and want a hint in a specific cel I want the hint for not where YOU think you should give me the hint. Also, obnoxious Advertising with blinking icon still there today. I’m going to start looking for a new sudoku app to play now.
Awesome
by gmhlove on 2019/05/16 00:59
Finally a game that wasn’t easy. I like a challenge!! It took me about an hour to figure out how to do it without making mistakes but, I got the hang of it and finally beat the easy level. So now on the to the next level!!! :)
3 tries=3 stars
by snapelover300 on 2019/05/15 20:33
Uhhhh having only 3 tries isn’t the point of the game. Your ALLOWED to make mistakes. Having only 3 tries isn’t how you play the game. I wish it didn’t show you if you made a mistake, and just let you change it when you realize it’s wrong. I’m just letting you know that having only 3 tries ain’t how you play sudoku. Just sayin 😶

by Tigercub122 on 2019/05/15 18:20
I’ve been playing sudoku for a while now and I’ve gotten pretty good at it, so I was happy to find what seemed to be a great app to play it on. I was dissatisfied when I was almost finished with my first puzzle, and it didn’t make any sense! The only number missing from a box couldn’t be placed because another pre placed number was seemingly in the wrong spot. I thought maybe it was just generated wrong, so I created a new one, but sure enough, again, the puzzle couldn’t be completed because of the pre placed numbers in the wrong places. Very frustrating. It would be a great app if the puzzles were correct!

by Jake_1453 on 2019/05/15 02:02
I love the texture and the layout and colors of this game and the new hints are smart; However, this game—as seemingly simple as it is—devours my battery and makes my phone VERY hot. It is incredible how different my phone behaves while I am playing sudoku, it will play any other game with more intense graphics and physics normally and get hot over a very long time with some battery drainage, but when it comes to your relatively simple 2D puzzle game, it gets hot really quick and drains my battery really quick. I love sudoku and your game and it’s style, but PLEASE fix it, because other games simply don’t compare.
Great

by Fnordgirl on 2019/05/13 23:23
I saw the add and decided to download it because it looked really cool but when I was looking at the directions and didn’t understand it that much it just said blah blah blah put the numbers were you think they might go then I thought that hey this might be a bit easier then I thought but a hour or so later I never won one cause I only got there tries and i know I’m not the only one and I was like REALLY REALLY and I was so sad I started looking for a different app so I hope others have a better time at this game then I did
Mistakes

Mistakes
by Labinsc4eva on 2019/05/13 10:49
Three mistakes puts pressure on you and is not realizing you are trying to learn how to play the game. Maybe increase mistakes for beginners and then gradually decrease them as we learn how to play.

Uses too much battery
by annoyedaboutbatteryconsumption on 2019/05/12 12:29
Nothing else drains my battery as much as this app. 5 hours of YouTube was only 10% of my battery consumption in 24 hours, 3 hours of this app was 70%.
2-mistake limit
by ThetaStateofMind on 2019/05/12 11:24
The mistake limit mode only allows 2 mistakes, because the 3rd mistake loses the game, like strikes. I agree with others that 3 mistakes is more the kind of game I’m looking for. I’m not here for punishment. Maybe allow multiple mistake-limit levels in future versions. Yes, I know you can turn it off; I play in both modes.

Undo The Hint Change You Made!
by Soylent Blouie on 2019/05/12 05:52
The change that developers made to the game is pretty annoying. The upside is that it makes me think harder because I don’t want to tap it! A bit too much explanation. Overall a great and simple version of a classic game.
Word ads are annoying
by Bonnie naka on 2019/05/12 05:50
Enjoy the Sudoku, but the ads for all the word games is so annoying. I will likely stop playing sudoku if they keep popping up.
Pretty solid game
by AR54321 on 2019/05/12 04:19
Overall, I really like this game. I would recommend three changes: 1. Disable the “3 strikes and out” mode and don’t show errors until there are actual conflicts on the puzzle entries. And then just show the conflicts in red, not highlight all the cells that are wrong. 2. A back button that undoes number entries, including restoring original notes. 3. You really need an “I’m guessing” mode. Perhaps display everything in a different color once guessing, making it easier to back up, and perhaps 3 colors in total to allow three threads worth of guess work. If you implemented #1 above, then you really just need an option to change entry color. As it is now, for the hardest puzzles, I screen shot them and then solve them in the photo editor using the photo markup tools. Perhaps I am not smart enough to see far enough ahead, but it really seems like the hardest puzzles require a couple guesses.

Ads You Cannot Escape
by Vail Mountain Girl on 2019/05/11 23:23
My first complaint are the ads you cannot exit out of. You have to deleted the game. Second, I agree with other users about being allowed to make mistakes, some mistakes are on accident, thinking notes are on. You give the game away when revealing the mistake, which takes the challenge away. Also, I have never hit 3 mistakes and having a game quit, but have come back to finish a game and it not be there. In fact, all my stats gone. The last time I was not able to exit out of an add, I just deleted your game all together. It is not worth it. I would not pay $5.00 for you to reveal a mistake if I make one. I want to figure that out on my own. If you have people not wanting the challenge, maybe you can have an option in settings. Not everyone needs their hand held, especially on expert level.
Well
by Sujan lee on 2019/05/11 23:06
The recent update ruined everything... When I try to use a hint, it picks a random cell not the one I needed. Second time I hit the hint for another set of game, it filled up all the empty cells with notes. That’s it. No more control over the game.. i’m losing interest... Bye.

Bug-y game and developer won’t acknowledge
by leichilu on 2019/05/10 20:49
All was fine at first but after playing a few months expert mode is now “broken.” I continue to encounter impossible puzzles each round and even with the so called new hints function the app continues to serve up impossible puzzles. Contacted the in app support and provided screenshots and was given a terse “there is only one solution.” No s*hit Sherlock, admit that the game is broken and fix it.
Buttons not user friendly setup

Hint update - horrible
by LVMum on 2019/05/10 17:09
I have deleted this app. I have been playing many months and used hints when I needed a specific block to contain a number. Now the hint picks a block that I can figure out myself and fills that one in. Absurd.
New hint system is no good
by chaicndicndj on 2019/05/10 14:51
They released a new hint system that picks which square it shows vs you picking which you would like revealed. 1* for “fixing” something that wasn’t broken

I am new to Sudoku, and this ap is a great way to start.
Dumb update
by Harukannase on 2019/05/09 16:40
Hate the new hint system, the old one worked just fine and i dont understand how this one works
Love this game
by Felipelover on 2019/05/09 16:32
Always and forever, the app is sleek and easy to use.
Great game, playable for hours
by MBonnice on 2019/05/09 13:21
I play this game for hours. I only use the expert level. I paid for it so I can enjoy it uninterrupted. What would give five stars is two features: - when all nine instances of a number have been placed, that number should go dim on the list of choices - When using the feature to pencil in a number, I’d like a way to see at a glance all the places I have penciled in a number. Maybe if I press on “3”, all the places I’ve penciled a “3” would light up.
New Hint Process
by harpy19 on 2019/05/09 04:02
I don’t like the new way hints are given. I love this game and enjoy the daily puzzles but I preferred being able to select the cell that I wanted revealed rather than the game choosing for me. Please revert back to the old way.
3 tries????
by shashonn_m on 2018/04/23 02:20
I was obsessed with this app when I first downloaded it about a month or so ago and would play several games for literally hours. I took a break from it for a week before coming back to it and I don’t know if it updated or something while I was away from it, but there are a few things now that I greatly dislike. For one, I don’t like that once I’ve used one of the numbers up it just disappears; I feel like the challenge is not noticing when I’ve used the numbers up or not and I think this new change is unnecessary. Secondly, now I see that if you put a number incorrectly in the square three times then you lose the game altogether and you have to start the whole game over. This is extremelyyyyyy annoying because I hate games where I have a small amount of times to do well in a game. What is the purpose of having “tries”? Why not continue letting me make my mistakes until I finish the round? Why interrupt me in the middle of analyzing the puzzle? Sometimes I’ll accidentally press a number by accident and so this makes it even more annoying because I hadn’t meant to use up a “try”. I wish this app would go back to the way it was before because now I don’t play it as often and even deleted it for a few days because I was so annoyed.
Ad placement lousy
by Purdueet on 2018/03/31 20:34
First, with a couple exceptions I really like the app. It has great features. For the challenge I like to play it with no extra tools or hints that I’ve made a wrong entry. At times I get to the end and there’s a problem I can’t undo easily so I just want to start over. I can’t see how to do that without “un-doing” every move, or selecting each square and hitting erase. Please add a button to clear the puzzle to start over. My second concern is irritating enough to delete the app and find another game. On my IPhone 6s it’s the tight placement of the ad banner next to the number entry at the bottom of the screen. If I play with two hands inevitably I miss the number and hit the ad banner which takes me to another page. I understand the need for ads with a free game. But, that placement is so close that I mistakenly hit the ad many many times during a puzzle and I lose my place or thought process. It is maddening. I don’t even look at the ad, I get frustrated and immediately hit the button to return to sudoku. I’m glad you get the clicks for the advertising revenue but it feels like a setup with the layout so you get those clicks. Please fix these. It would be a 5 Star review otherwise!
Great App but one suggestion!
by Mammoth48 on 2019/02/26 08:03
I don’t normally leave reviews but I feel as if there is just something missing. In my opinion, I think this game is missing some aspect of working toward a goal. I understand each game in itself is working towards finishing the puzzle, but I think it would be better if you were working for something larger. For example, after each puzzle you earn coins (more coins for higher difficulty). Saving up enough of these coins you could then purchase a new game board or background to play on instead of the regular black and white game. I like the idea of daily puzzles with trophies, but these trophies also don’t really do anything as well. Maybe getting enough trophies could unlock different types of game modes? These are just suggestions and you guys could get creative with it, I just wish there was some in game currency I could earn to purchase something else in the game as it is more fun playing when there is something to work for. Overall though great app!
Love it!
by ._G_. on 2019/04/06 16:36
The game functions well. It features settings to change whether the game is timed, whether you want limits on how many you get incorrect, along with lots of other options. It’s very simplistic without flashy colors, and has three different color options for different times of the day (white, yellow, black) similar to functions on an internet browser, so your eyes don’t strain from white light etc. It doesn’t take up much of my battery usage, and works on airplane mode/without data, so it’s nice for a flight or a road trip. The single downside to this app is the ads before and/or after each puzzle is completed, and if you have a limit on how many you can get correct it plays an ad before you can continue, but again the limit can be turned off in the settings. Overall, this app is fantastic and I definitely recommend downloading it if you are a fan of sudoku.
Last update is horrible!
by Pioens on 2018/04/20 14:44
Update: The weird game-in-game mode is gone and the original game is back!! Adjusted my ratings- Thank you! PS-I have no problems with ads like other reviewers; they’re easy to turn off in settings. Have been playing this game for a long time, and this really was my go-to relaxation, but the latest update is horrible! -The level selection at the start is annoying. -Then the forced ‘choose your daily bonus’; I don’t want any bonus!! I just want to play sudoku! -Then the 3 strikes and you have to watch an ad to continue is highly annoying and frustrating. I know I can turn off the mistake limit, but I can’t turn off this new ‘game mode’. These updates to the game are annoying and horrible and make me dislike a previously fun and relaxing game. -Also, suddenly the ads at the end of each game have become much, much longer. I’d think the developers should think about why people play Sudoku (a classic ‘brian game’!) before doing ad placement and updates in this way. Too bad you ruined a great game just so you could charge more for ads and ad-free play! Update: To the developers response; Did you read my review?! I said I know I can turn it off- but I can’t turn off the stupid game mode!! And I did send a message through the help section too, so this reply completely missed the boat.
Love the Game- Eats Battery
by CCDrew on 2018/12/01 11:48
I am a fan of the app other than battery usage. I am assuming that the all white background is what is drawing down my normally excellent battery? Perhaps I will change my phone’s screen brightness settings and see if that helps. Otherwise, this is a great version of the classic game. Update: Now that I have been playing for a few weeks I have another annoyance to note. All it takes is bumping the bottom of the screen, fat fingers, or forgetting to switch back into note mode to cause a “mistake.” Three mistakes and you’re out! I understand that you can switch this off, but I would rather there were more than three mistakes allowed in this mode. I have lost multiple games due to these unintentional mistakes which had nothing to do with gamesmanship. There is no cushion between the advertisements and the bottom of the gameplay area which causes the advertisement’s links to be bumped and new windows to pop up regularly.
Great puzzles but intrusive ads
by Sideshowcris on 2018/04/03 05:36
These puzzles are maddeningly more difficult than the last sudoku app I had on my phone. They make me feel like an utter moron for a long while before I finally crack them and feel like a superhero. The controls menu could be a little clearer (for example, “New Game” is misleading; I’d change it to “Options”), but overall the puzzle interface is intuitive and easy to use. However, the incredibly long and unskippable ads for BS Candy Crush clones or Clash of Clans-style phone RPGs really dampen my joy. What’s worse, they play before they show my final time/score, which adds a certain dread that creeps up during the home stretch of finishing a game in anticipation of the annoyance. Because of this, I rarely play more than one game at a time. I would gladly pay for a pro version to make these intrusive between-game ads go away. The puzzles are my new favorite daily challenge, but the annoying ads keep the app from five stars.
Great app!
by justy_westy on 2019/03/10 20:57
I really like this! Great puzzle game to wake up to with a cup of coffee and get my brain started. Small areas for improvement might be to: 1) have an option for “random” level of puzzle difficulty. It’s great to do the daily challenge and then find out it the level once you completed it because it’s part of the fun to guess the difficulty level (for me at least). 2) I have been doing the daily challenges for almost a year before the current ones (going back to do the ones I didn’t do before). So having an easier way to scroll through the previous months / years of puzzles would be helpful (similar to the calendar setup for iPhone where you can go month by month or view it as a yearly display and click on a certain month). Overall though love the app! Keep up the awesome work!
Suduko
by SandyBeachDM on 2017/11/16 22:03
As a senior, doctors said, "try new things," ie Games, music, etc. to spark and re-route brain cells. This Suduko is part of a 3 or 4 game self-challenge I use to check speed, problem solving & comprehension. I like this iphone Suduko better than the other app I tried. Timing and thinking have to do with whether I'm ill or not, and what effect medication change has on my brain. Also, the games are FUN❗️ It's been a bit of adjustment for my ego to realize I may never get the speed of the players younger and healthier than I am, when I make comparisons. I have played against myself and love to see the improvement. I also like the difficulty options, according to the needs of my condition. I'm impressed with the people who create the programs for these games. You are all probably the age of my grandsons, approaching 30 years of age. Thanks, SandyB 👩🏼/👵🏼 🐬👍🏼
Poor Use of Ads Kills Battery
by WowIReallyCantFindANickname on 2019/02/21 13:41
Many free games use an ad banner at the bottom of the screen and that is perfectly fine; however, this game’s ad banner actually has an impact on my IPhone 7. When I have data on (regardless of whether on WiFi or 4G) the ad banner is at the bottom of the screen and my battery life drops VERY quickly while also increasing the temperature of my phone. When I have my data off and no ad appears, no temperature or battery issues. The problem of course is I don’t want to sacrifice my ability to use my phone’s features like IMessage or email over a game of sudoku when I’m not at home using a charger. Great game were it not for this issue. I would assume this has something to do with poor programming on the side of the ad banner where it’s somehow running on maximum overdrive or something to constantly stream information regarding the ad instead of however other games download that banner info.
Game nice, ads HORRIBLE, overpriced
by chiphines on 2018/06/02 22:25
Update: received a note from the developer saying that the game is "completely free" thereby missing the points I was trying to make. First, while it is true that one doesn't pay money to get the game, the user does pay a much bigger price than normal in terms of having to watch relatively lengthy ads between each game. Second, they do in fact get paid for showing the ads which is why we don't pay, and if we want to get rid of ads we have to pay the to do it. IMHO, they don't get the basic economics wherein they have to "charge" the consumer no more than (s)he is willing to pay. Every second the consumer has to sit waiting to play is time they aren't enjoying. So I'm now using my old version of Sudoku by another vendor that does require ads but they don't take up nearly as much time. That one is nowhere as pretty, and it doesn't show all 9 numbers with their version of the pencil. I hope they get the point - cut ad time in half and they will get more users. I do like all but a few things in the product, but won't do much with this unless the "cost" of using it goes down. Previous input: The good: game is nice and looks good. A few fixes would be nice The bad: over priced $8.00 is too much. The Ugly: you get twice as many ads, they don't have shortcuts, they appear when you finish a game 2 ads, and again if you start another. Really not worth the trouble when other games work the same if not as pretty.
Was great before the recent update
by HellboundKnight on 2018/04/19 13:15
This has been one of my favorite apps for a long time. Clean, simple, and easy to use with good puzzles. The recent update has introduced far too many advertisements though. I understand the need for adverts as an important revenue stream, and had absolutely no problem sitting through them whenever I began a new game considering it allowed me to play the games for free. The recent update however has now made it so that every time I open the app, I have to sit through the same advertisements over and over just to finish one darn game. I mean, at least switch up the ads or something, but having to sit through the half minute of adverts numerous times just to complete one game because I don’t have half an hour to dedicate to sit down with it is too much. And I’m sorry but $7.99 is just too high for removing ads from a Sudoku app. That’s just not worth it. Thank you guys for the great service up to now, but unless the adverts go back to between every game, I’ll be looking for another app.
Fix the hint system
by ShadowNinja5 on 2019/05/01 13:19
Overall the app has been pretty great, but with the latest update the hint system has become totally non-functional. It was incredibly helpful when it simply filled a single spot I chose. But now it auto-fills a nearly complete row/column, which does nothing to help. I prefer playing the game with number-first inputs because it’s just helpful to me personally, so I often end up with nearly complete rows that I’ll get to when I get to the number that completes them. I don’t need hints for those, I need hints to help when it’s 50/50 where a number will go. Edit: oh, so now it’s finding even more ways to avoid being helpful. I know how to use the pencil feature. I know the strategies of how to best use the pencil feature. What I don’t know is the 50/50 chance that I’ll make a third mistake and have to either start over or wait through one of your terrible 45 second ads. Strategies only go so far. Fix the hints ASAP, or I’ll delete the game.
Needs more challenges/long ads
by Tdtd1970 on 2019/03/29 16:03
Recently finished all the available daily challenges up to current, looks like only goes back about two years. I play all the levels easy to expert based on time available and how relaxing, levels seem pretty good mix of difficulty. Would like to see more badges or challenges or some kind of themes for backgrounds. Have tried various sudoku games, this is the one I have kept going back to and do at least one game daily. Like that can go back and do previous daily challenges. Maybe would like option to replay particular boards where I previously took longer than average or had too many errors and had to retry. Only annoying thing is the ads have been getting longer and longer, video, and sometimes when I do not feel I have touched anything in the middle of playing it sends me to the App Store as if an ad has been triggered.
Guessing Game
by Cherlock58 on 2018/11/15 17:29
Since the last update they are not solvable without guessing. Not just one guess is required but you must guess multiple times. So they’ve basically turned it into a guessing game. A reply from the developer to my review claims.... “If you have big experience in solving sudoku and knowledge about different strategies, you can solve them without hints and the method of trial and error.” This is NOT TRUE, at least not since an apparent update, and when playing the daily challenge. I’ll try the regular puzzles and see if they’re solvable without trial and error IOW guessing, but the daily challenge isn’t. Somehow it was set, not by me, to three errors and you lose, maybe it has something to do with that setting. Regardless it’s become quite disappointing to spend time only to get to where you must guess multiple times and then lose. I like a brain challenge not a guessing game.
Great features! Great app support!
by Freddo367 on 2017/09/22 12:23
I love this app's customization features. You can toggle features such as highlighting duplicates, or every one of a number, auto correct, etc. So when I play I turn most of them off, but when I hand my phone to a child we turn most of them back on. It really helps to customize the level of difficulty and make the experience exactly what you would like it to be. Also, their support is amazing! There was one pop up ad that was hijacking the app and driving me nuts. I was going to give it a bad review, but noticed some reviews said they received a response from support and thought I'd try it too. Within 24 hours of contacting them I received an email telling me they blocked the annoying ad. And they did!
Ads You Cannot Escape
by Vail Mountain Girl on 2019/05/11 23:23
My first complaint are the ads you cannot exit out of. You have to deleted the game. Second, I agree with other users about being allowed to make mistakes, some mistakes are on accident, thinking notes are on. You give the game away when revealing the mistake, which takes the challenge away. Also, I have never hit 3 mistakes and having a game quit, but have come back to finish a game and it not be there. In fact, all my stats gone. The last time I was not able to exit out of an add, I just deleted your game all together. It is not worth it. I would not pay $5.00 for you to reveal a mistake if I make one. I want to figure that out on my own. If you have people not wanting the challenge, maybe you can have an option in settings. Not everyone needs their hand held, especially on expert level.
Battery DRAINER
by aaroncastonguay on 2019/05/05 20:42
First, I only have one real issue with this app. The battery consumption. I still play it every day and love completing the daily challenges. How much battery it consumes is completely unacceptable. You can literally watch your battery decrease by at least 4% a minute. What exactly is this app doing/collecting in the background that is causing this?!? It’s shady as all get out. I would have bought the ad-less version a long time ago if the battery consumption was lower. I don’t believe in paying money for an app that more or less requires you to be connected to a power source. To the developers - I don’t want to hear about how you are aware of the problem and to stay tuned for future updates. You have been saying this to others for a long time now. JUST FIX IT. This is ridiculous. Please, along with others who love everything else about your app, listen to what is being said and actually FIX (not say you’re working on) your app.
Nice and clean but more ads is bad
by noctis.d on 2019/04/13 15:34
The game has a really nice and clean design. Notes appear very well. The thing I hate after the most recent update is that you have made the app "pause" everytime I go out of it. When I return into the app, I'm not greeted with the sudoku puzzle but with a "pause" screen which requires me to tap on a "continue" button to show me the puzzle again. Every time I do this, I also get an ad.... It kills all the experience and I have no time to watch an ad before I can concentrate on the puzzle again. Previously, it was not so. Deleted the app. If you remove this annoying update, I'll gladly come back to this game. Edit after developer's response: It's good that you'll take it into consideration, however, I have moved on to a less intrusive app. Keep improving, although the solution is quite simple.
Those ads are not good
by Bjparkinson on 2019/04/10 05:30
I was enjoying this game initially, but I am growing increasingly frustrated with the long advertisement pop-ups that I have to sit through in order to play. I understand that the game is free, but the advertisements get longer and longer as the game goes on - especially after three incorrect answers. It is the same with other games in the same family. I have stopped playing them because I can’t stand the advertisements, which are too long!! I have other games on my phone that don’t require that I sit through the advertisements in their entirety. 30 second adds are too long and the way you have placed them in the middle of the game, makes it all the more annoying and irritating. I like your particular version of Sudoku, but not enough to keep playing with all of the ads.
Differences between IPhone and IPad versions
by princessleah1007 on 2018/09/10 04:17
I downloaded the app and have become, like most other reviewers, addicted to the game. I think (having read other reviews) the updates seems to make the game better and I hope my feedback helps improve user experience. My husband decided to download the app on his iPhone X, after I was hooked. I noticed that between my iPhone X and my husband’s (iPhone X as well) there were differences. He has a layout that looks like there are different levels, almost like candy crush, but I don’t. We checked versions, deleted/reinstalled, etc. and found no differences between the specs of the version reinstalled on our phones. It’s the strangest thing...so to those who download it, beware of the differences you may see in the game based on your device (including iPads, we checked that too.).
Unbearable ads play sound while phone is muted
by AgnesMcGee on 2018/02/13 01:08
I have been using this app daily for several months now, and have really enjoyed it. BUT I RECOMMEND THAT YOU DON’T INSTALL IT. Just recently it has started serving up ads to me that blast sound EVEN THOUGH I HAVE THE AUDIO SWITCH TURNED OFF ON MY PHONE. It shows a complete lack of respect for their users that this company engages in this practice. If my sound is turned off, it’s because I don’t want my phone to make noise! To have an ad come blasting out of it all of a sudden — and often with NO WAY TO STOP IT — is embarrassing to me and rude to those around me. I reported the problem to them, and sent screen shots and the time and date it happened three times, at their request. But clearly they believe that allowing it to continue will somehow benefit their advertisers. I have deleted the app and won’t reinstall it, or any other products from this company. One of the most infuriating things I’ve ever experienced with an app.
Excessive amount of 30 second ads kills the game.
by Possumlady on 2018/06/19 21:10
Nice Gameplay but the length of ads kill it. I don’t mind ads normally, but these are above and beyond most apps. The time consumed by the ads makes the game unplayable. Until they shorten them I would suggest playing a different Sudoku app. Many games need ads. We recognize this and normally are ok with it. The amount of ads isn’t the issue, it is the fact that they are 30 second ads and they happen after each game, if you select ‘second chance’, and some 30 second ads after hitting new game. (Mostly 5 second skips here) This time adds up and goes far beyond the norm. 5-10 second ads are plenty long enough to entice gamers. When they run long it frustrates the consumers and not only do they not click the advertised product, they delete your product as well. I hope you guys consider adjusting this, it would be a great game, it just is not worth the hassle as is. EDIT FOLLOWING DEVELOPER RESPONSE: Some ads can be skipped after 5 seconds. The ones I refer to have a 29 second timer and no X until it expires. The 5 second ads are normal and expected on ad supported games, the others are excessive. You are not acknowledging this exists so I doubt it will be fixed. I’m Deleting the app and moving on, No need for support to tell me how to count down from 30 or hit the X, but thanks for the offer.
I love this but...
by LowPoe on 2019/01/04 05:23
This is my favorite sudoku game and I don’t mind the 3 tries, but I was doing so well. I’ve completed about 4 months since I recently join and I just started October, but now my game freezes every time I go on. This has happened before, but the only thing that solved it was deleting the app, which deletes all my data!! I worked so hard to complete the daily sudoku and I don’t want to delete them :( but I’ve tried refreshing the app and restarting my phone but nothing has worked. I know if I want to actually play I have to delete it but I don’t want to delete all the trophies I got. This needs to be fixed because I rely on this app when I’m feeling nervous and now I can’t keep my mind busy since my favorite app keeps freezing.
Horrid
by that one chickkkkk on 2018/07/14 13:48
When I downloaded this game I was excited and in hope of getting better at sudoku. Now I didn’t realize that it only let you have 3 mistakes. In my opinion not at all fun when you can’t have a few mistakes. I’d rather like it to be where you can place it there even if it’s wrong and the number won’t disappear until they are all placed right instead of limiting your mistakes. It could be colorful too, that might have helped with the sudden wave of boredom I got from seeing black and white everywhere instead of having a pop of color or a theme to it. Usually I love sudoku but this made it worse for me and now I don’t want to play sudoku anymore thanks to this app.
Annoying Ad
by Scuba8888888 on 2019/05/16 01:03
I am fine that you have to run Ads. I know that is how you pay for the development of the game. But you have an Advertisement that sits on the bottom and continuously blinks on an envelope icon. That is soooooo annoying especially when playing a game that requires concentration like this one. The Ad doesn’t even say what it is for unless I click on it and I don’t want to give them that satisfaction. If you don’t stop running this Ad I will have to stop playing the game. If you get rid of that Ad, I will give you 5 stars because I do like the app. UPDATE- I just lowered my score to one star. When I do NOT like the change you made to hints. I know how to play, some times I’m just tired and want a hint in a specific cel I want the hint for not where YOU think you should give me the hint. Also, obnoxious Advertising with blinking icon still there today. I’m going to start looking for a new sudoku app to play now.
Bad Ad
by WISEnotCHEAP on 2018/10/26 16:02
One of the issues I have is not with the product but an add for your product. You have a game that is suppose to be supporting thinking and learning yet you have an ad where you have someone playing while in class. This means they are not paying attention in class since playing. What a dumb message to send. As a parent who battles with my child about his grades and cellphone usage at school, I’m furious. As a teacher who competes with cellphone usage in class I am angered even more. Time and a place for all things and promoting using your product at the wrong time is wrong. I ask that you remove the ad showing the student playing your game while in class. Response to Response: Time and a place for pleasure and a time for being serious. You don’t play games in class! I wrote my thoughts almost a year ago and still get responses poorly written by the maker. STOP HARASSING ME! You made your point and I had mine.
Shocking and Inappropriate
by AuntieAdel on 2017/11/05 02:28
I love the fame sudoku. I used to play it very frequently as a child so when I saw the advertising of the app come up as part of my Instagram feed I didn’t hesitate to search you out and download your app. But the commercials are very long and difficult to exist out of which was annoying by itself but today right after coming home from telling my nieces and nephews to download the app and enjoy the game. I opened the app to find a naked porn commercial interrupting my game. I was so shocked I abruptly closed out of the app and forgot to get the name out of the commercial for you. But I need to make you aware that that’s very offensive and needs to be removed immediately!
Game within a game!
by Stingraystripe on 2018/06/15 21:33
Because this app drains your battery like no other, you can create a game within a game where you guess how much battery life will be sacrificed per game (hint: it’s about 2% per minute, even on airplane mode... so you really have to wonder what it’s doing in the background!). And it’s really fantastic in the winter. If you’re outside. Without gloves. Cuz this thing will heat your phone right up - literally hot to the touch! Note to “developer” - please spare me the canned response of ‘we’re working on this so stay tuned for future updates.’ Fact- YOUR app has only made my phone get hotter to the touch and burn even more battery with every release. Seriously, just WTH are you gathering in the background for this app?! Ridiculous! Sodoku is just basic math - NO reason whatsoever to make the phone work hard. Unless you’ve got some really sketchy stuff you’re up to. Steer clear of this app and this developer!!!
Love but a few ?'s
by AJBC3 on 2018/10/01 04:50
Hi! I love this app! It's well put together. I was just wondering if there is a way to track my times? I know it keeps the best time in a log but I'd really like to know my times for all games so when I play a game I can compare times later on in that day. I don't know if this make sense but I just like to track my times better and not just the "best" ever time for that level. Also, if there a reason the numbers come up 2 different colors once I lock them in? Couldn't find info on that in settings or anything. I'm semi new to sudoku so I wasn't sure if these colors meant anything specific? Other than that, I love the game & I thank you for it!
HATE this new update!
by TooBZ2Bbored on 2018/04/22 04:03
This is what I said before the update: Love that you can put the pencil marks in easily, that if you fill a column with the same number the pencil mark erases. Easy to use and navigate the site. Only suggestion I have is to make the first game that pops up be an option for the daily challenge. NOW: HATE this! Going to look for a new app. SO bummed because I really liked it. Now the freaking Toon Blast ads after every game (and before some games) last forever and sometimes there’s two things to click to get out of them. I am NEVER going to play Tune Blast so STOP!!! Also HATE that you all of a sudden get 3 tries and if you make 3 mistakes all of a sudden you’re locked out unless you watch a freaking ad! UGH!!! Why do you change one of only two games I play daily into something that’s a pain! You’ve got a couple of days to fix it otherwise I’m done and deleting!
Ads, ads, ads, and more ads
by break the norm on 2018/04/09 09:54
Two of the same ads back to back (oftentimes that you cant even close) before and after every single game you play...seeing the same ads over and over, game after game gets old super quick. And as of April 2018, it’s $7.99 to go ad free!!! I usually pay to remove ads and I really wanted to for this app because the interface is pretty good compared to other sudoku apps. But no way no how I’d pay eight bucks to remove ads when there are so many other sudoku apps that’ll let you go ad free for 99 cents, maybe $2 max. Developers must be desperate of greedy...I dunno. Deleted after a few days. At least diversify ur ads for cryin out loud. At least make good use of the ads that you let on the app twice in-between every game played. Right now, the way the ads are placed, along with the ridiculous price to go ad free makes this app a must-delete.
Excellent game with minor flaw
by jdcarlsonma on 2018/08/10 16:10
I’ve had this game for several months now, and (after turning off some obnoxious ads) it’s pretty decent. The customizations are very good. The pencil mode is a little rough to use, but works ok when used with undo— which you’ll need after invariably hitting a non-pencil number by mistake. The flaw though is that too many of the games require a guess. Real sudoku, at least in my opinion, always uses logic to solve the puzzle. But too many of the games on expert mode halt at a point where no more constraints exist, and you have to just “guess” to continue. None of the syndicated newspaper games are like that, so if this bothers you, you might like this game at least one star less.
Worst app ever!!!!!!!!😤‼️ this is a big mistake!!!!!!!
by #cutehearti♥️🐶 on 2018/01/04 02:56
I hated this app! It's the worst! There are no ads, thankfully! Easy is hard, not easy! Well, maybe it is easy, but still, it's bad! None of the rows or columns match up. It takes you minutes (what seems hours) to complete a single puzzle! It's good for Big-Brain-Thinkers. (or smart people) I deleted it, but it was hard. I'd prefer a hard word cross game instead. But, I'm also tired. So, it really could be a great game. Sorry if this is a big mistake. Take other people's word for it, not mine. Bye, hope you liked this review! I'm super sorry this is a really big mistake! I was just really tired that night. But I'll stick with this other sudoku game, sorry. I'm so sorry about your app. I feel real bad. I'm show me great apps. ☹️😭😐
Clean, Simple, Fun
by Brucebrucerson on 2018/02/08 22:03
There are absolutely no complaints I can make about this game. It isn’t something new or original, obviously sudoku has been around for a long time, but the interface is easy to use and makes play convenient. It feels clean, simple, and intuitive. Some things I might like to see in the app going forward are possible guide levels. I think tutorials on sudoku techniques ranging from beginner to advanced would be a wonderful addition. It could show players the different strategies and scenarios to use them in order to improve themselves, as well as circumventing the need to use online guides.
The advertisements
by REHeggie on 2018/12/29 02:10
Overall it’s your standard sudoku app with all of the necessary features for a good experience. It’s fast with a slick look. I would have kept using it, if it weren’t for the advertisements. There is a constant animated banner running at the bottom and you have to watch through an advertisement whenever you want a hint or to submit your score. Sometimes it even send you to the App Store for the app that it is promoting. There’s really no escaping this dynamic which remains a distraction throughout the experience. There are too many other free Sudoku apps out there to keep hassling with this one. Keep looking and you’ll find another option that isn’t drenched in advertisements the way this one is.
Very relaxing.
by Mad CeJay on 2018/10/08 16:01
I know a lot of people say that about a lot of apps and games. But this one is for me for sure. I have an anxiety disorder. So when things get a little to over stimulating. I jump into my sudoku. It calms and refocuses me. Give it a shot. It’s simplistic look is not overwhelming. Very easy on the eyes. Not a lot jumping around or other distractions around the screen. But do not think it is just simple. It is very fun and has challenging levels. You can really tell that the creators took their time with the design and interface of this app. It stands out of the barrage of sudoku games in the App Store. Get it. You will enjoy it!
glitches?
by freston88 on 2018/06/27 01:15
i love sudoku and i loved playing on this app until here recently it was great BUT the past couple games i have played i will put in a number and it tells me it’s wrong so i go and double check myself and it can’t be any other number so i watch an ad to get a free hint and then use that hint to tell me the number that goes there and guess what it’s the number i typed in!! i thought ok maybe i made a mistake and hit the wrong number but then in another game same issue and i double checked that i hit the right number!! i love a challenge but since it only gives 3 mistakes before it ends the game it’s really starting to annoy me to the point of finding a different sudoku app and deleting this one for good!!!
Sadness
by Nonipanoni on 2018/05/24 08:56
I've had this app for months now and I really enjoy it. I play it every night before bed because it's calming and it makes me tired. For months now I had my heart set on finishing all of the daily challenges for each month this whole year, which I did and I was moving onto last year. Without knowing I accidentally deleted the app and in turn it deleted all my process. I really love this app but that's almost 6 months of daily challenges gone and I'm really upset about it. I think for the future maybe add in an account feature so people don't lose their process. Keep up the good work and thanks for making my favorite suduko app❤️
Ads- too many, too long & the same 2 ads!
by hardworking2018 on 2019/02/16 05:40
I love this game!!! But there are way too many “ads” for other games! It might not be so bad if the ads were for games that I don’t already have! I have been playing Toon Blast and Wordscapes for several months so I really hate to have to sit through those ads just to get my 2nd Chance in Sudoku! And these ads in Sudoku seem to be even longer than the ads in my other games! Very disappointed.... **Update- after posting this review, I scrolled down and read many other reviews. I see the exact same response from the developers in answer to any review that mentions “too many and/or too long ads”. This leads me to believe the developers do not actually care about this problem. “Thank you for sharing”!
Unsolvable Puzzles
by Reverend Slug Slime on 2018/07/11 22:16
Would’ve given it 5 stars except for the fact that I have run into 3 unsolvable puzzles so far, out of roughly 200 played. I double checked them online to make sure I wasn’t just stuck. A newbie or inexperienced player might become extremely frustrated and turned off from an otherwise relaxing, educational, mind strengthening game and I imagine an experienced player might just say “uh-uh” and erase the app altogether. Other than the unsolvables, the way the app functions and plays is fantastic. Very easy to use once you find the settings tab. Could probably use a tutorial or something to direct you to it immediately.
Veeery good, no complaints.
by Sanshuba on 2019/02/06 02:13
Ads are non-intrusive, you can choose the difficulty and play for free. Such a great and relaxing game, probably I’ll never delete this app from my device. And you can change the background, so I put it dark and numbers white, so I can play at night without loosing my drowsiness and it saves battery as well. I have no complaints about this game. Ah, and you can choose if you want limited tries or not. It is good because it is a choice, beginners can learn with unlimited tries while more experienced ones can put 3 the limit of three tries. Thank you developer(s).
Updated review
by Lexie2u2 on 2018/07/22 01:29
I first gave this 3 stars. I didn’t like to have to start over after 3 mistakes. App developer took the time to email me. There’s a setting to turn that off. There’s also the option to make it ad free. It’s hard sometimes to remember to turn pencil on & off or sometimes I meant to pick “5” & just tapped the wrong number. The best thing about this app is that they get back to you personally at your email address to address any complaints you have. Personal service doesn’t happen a lot these days & I appreciate it. So now 5 Star app IMO!!! Would highly recommend.
Ok app, but clunky
by Epicrpgfan on 2019/03/19 18:44
Overall the aesthetic looks better than the other big sudoku app, but it has more problems. First, the app takes way too much power, my phone is often hot after playing 1-2 games. Sure that might be the case for some graphics intensive games, but sudoku? While the game looks cleaner, I feel like there’s a but too much visual clutter when you click on a number. It just makes it more confusing. Second, the ads. There are much more ads than the other sudoku app. In addition, one ad I got had an invisible close button... just a really cheap tactic to try to get me to look at that app. For these reasons I’d go with the other sudoku app, but this one is OK too just for casual fun
Ad-HEAVY, $$$$ for ad-free
by DocB_007 on 2018/06/04 03:14
250 K ratings, huh?? REALLY? IS THAT how much you had to pad just to get your overall above 4.5? I just plain DON’T BELIEVE those numbers, unless there are a LOT of folks out there who don’t mind feeling like patsies. This feels more like extortion than any game I’ve tried recently. The ads STOP the show between ALL games AND at other times as well, they are very obnoxious, demanding nearly half a minute or so & two or more screens (with forced wait on EACH screen). Ads are SO disruptive I can’t IMAGINE playing this more than a handful of times before either paying TEN BUCKS(!!!!) to remove them, or (and this seems the only logical choice) DELETING THE GAME & finding a MUCH less heavy-handed, overpriced version among the MANY sudoku options available. The interface IS nice (when it’s not being eclipsed by the ads), and it’s just TOO BAD they’ve chosen such guerrilla tactics to market this. I, for one, HATE feeling trapped, duped, or forced to go along with someone’s idea to try to sell me something or make money off me. Try a little less greed (I’d have been ok paying a couple bucks for this, but TEN???), a little less coercion, and (this is the MOST important) a little more RESPECT for clients/ potential customers!
Good game, ads are awful
by MrpMax on 2019/03/05 06:21
Love this game, I’ve got almost a year complete of daily challenges under my belt. My concern regards the ads. I can tolerate the amount of ads the game has, and it’s understandable they’re in the game. Almost every time I begin a new game or finish a game, I get an ad. However, the problem is that my screen freezes on the pop ups when they appear. To exit out of the ads, I have to completely shut down the app. The screen doesn’t seem to work when an ad pops up. Perhaps I may need to reinstall the app, perhaps the game is buggy, but regardless I thought I’d mention it. Overall great app for procrastinating.
Needs two simple features
by Joe in Kzoo on 2018/07/25 04:21
Overall pretty good, but has two quirks which should be easy to fix: 1. If you’re in the middle of a game and have to interrupt it and leave the game it doesn’t take you back to the game you were playing. If you don’t remember which game number you were playing, you have to select one, and if it’s wrong it warns you that your previous game will be lost. Very kludgy way to get back to the same game. 2. When you complete a game it gives you an ad then displays a congratulation screen. This screen does not display the game number, and if you don’t remember there is no way of finding out.
The app is good the number buttons trick you
by SylarUchiha on 2018/06/11 22:08
The game give you 3 chances for the wrong answers, after that you have a couple seconds to accept and watch an annoying add for a life, or to just start a new game. I thought it was me that time to time I press the wrong number bye accident, at least until I start playing with a stylus. You can’t go more precise than a pen stylus. The game on purpose press the wrong number, usually the one at the right of the one that you press. Doing so it forces you to lose, so you don't have any other choice. Or you watch the annoying add, or just star from scratch. Whatever is happening is really annoying. To bad for a good app. Im deleting it in ... 3...2...1... Good bye
Addicted 💕
by Gdundsish on 2018/12/08 01:11
This game brings back quite a few memories. When I was younger my grandma taught me how to play Sudoku and got me addicted. This game also has a way of always changing things up so you don’t get too bored. It challenges your brain which I love since I am a higher curricula student. I often download puzzle games to find out they are way too easy and end up getting to level 500+ or completing all levels within less that half an hour or so. This game is worth the download and I can’t thank the developers enough for making a worthy game!

Thanks to this game i finally get how to play this It's really challenging You wouldn't be bored
Great Sudoku game
by Azam K. on 2019/05/19 14:19
I ended up purchasing the game because the ads were way too long. With ads, it’s more of a 3 star experience. I’m no opponent to ads, just that when they are 60 seconds long, it really disrupts the gameplay. I’d just add two things to make this a 5 star game: 1) Add a redo button. If undo is pressed accidentally or once too many times, it’s often hard to remember exactly what the last move was, especially if it was a note on an Expert board. 2) Add a way to cancel out of hints without seeing the solution all the way through. I love that the first screen just points out a focus area. But there’s no way to stop there and figure the rest out yourself. You are required to see the solution all the way through. Thanks and keep up the great work!
Addicting!
by Sarah.Palin on 2019/05/19 12:18
Great mind bending game that you’ll get better at all the time. I play 4 or five a day. Only flaws are the occasional commercials which won’t let you back to the game unless you give up your email or purchase something. I’ve had to delete the game and reinstall it twice in the past few weeks, and lost all history and daily challenge scores.
I dislike the new hint system.
by Magnet_Girl on 2019/05/19 07:29
I love sudoku, but like a lot of people sometimes I need help, and I used to like the hint system a lot. The old system was you select a box and when you press ‘hint’ it would fill in that specific box; now the new system just randomly fills in a box that I didn’t select and didn’t need a hint on! I think it’s cute that it explains why is would be that number, but it’s explaining it for boxes I didn’t want help with! If I wanted to have help for that box I would select that one!
Too Many Ads
by Stephanie2678732 on 2019/05/19 03:02
Not only do you have to watch an ad before your game, but you have to watch another after each game as well.

App freezes up
by MJA76432688 on 2019/05/18 17:12
I enjoy this app! However, it started freezing up this week. If I don't tap the screen for a a few seconds, it freezes. I have to close the app and open a different app before the soduko app will unfreeze. Please advise about what to do.

Too Much Fun In One Place!
by Kitty Catty Chatty on 2019/05/18 05:55
TigerLady-June 16, 2018 I absolutely love this game! Every time I play, I’m challenging my brain and it’s so much fun. Right now I can do easy and medium, but I’m working my way to hard! UPDATE-January 2, 2019 I honestly don’t care for the new update of the game. I still love playing game, but the change needs getting used to, I’m not one for changing things. Please don’t change anything else!!! UPDATE-May 10, 2019 I’m so disappointed in whoever makes the changes! You’ve changed this gaming app and not for the better! It’s as if you’re teaching me how to play this game for the very first time! I’m not a child and I don’t appreciate the way you’ve changed the game. I truly wish you had asked for input from all of your loyal players! This would be great for new players, but for myself it’s frustrating and demeaning! It’s comes across as if you’re teaching idiot’s! I am not an idiot!!! I use to love playing this game! If you don’t or won’t change the game back to the way it was, then you leave me no alternative than to just delete this gaming app and go to another gaming app! If I could, you wouldn’t get any star’s! I’m going to suggest to all of my Facebook friends who play this game, to do as I am and delete you!!! I’m giving you one week to change this game back or I’m definitely deleting this gaming app!!! UPDATE-May 19, 2019 I’m so pleased that you contacted me about my last update. Thank you so very much, you heard what I was saying and you responded quickly and I thank you for that! For everyone who reads reviews, please note that I was contacted and received an answer to my inquiry! Yes the new changes through me for a loop, but I was given a quick and easy way to play my games as before. All I had to do was go to the games settings, stroll down to hints and make the switch. Please note that our reviews are read and answered if needed. I’m so happy to give you 5 ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ stars! Thank you again!!!
Quit “Improving”
by LisaJ1960 on 2019/05/18 02:49
I loved this game until the most recent update. You tried to improve the ‘hint’ function and totally screwed it up. It’s confusing, plus it doesn’t fill in the cell I select. Go back to the previous version.

Not bad
by Zackismet on 2019/05/17 19:16
Shouldn’t tell you when you make mistakes. Love the organization elements and design, but “lives” to play is kinda dumb. I guess it’s not a bad way to monetize this, though.
App is excellent except the hint mechanism
by ashernorton on 2019/05/17 13:08
I’ve been using this app for at least two years (hey, I want that trophy at the end of the month/year!) and it has been appealingly consistent with updates and the ad placement doesn’t bother me in the slightest. That being said, for the first time in years, I have an issue: your new hint mechanism is...well, it’s definitely not at all good. I don’t use it for the helpful function: occasionally, there are boxes with no numbers in it, or an off-combination of numbers that gives me anxiety, and previously, I could use the hint function to make that easier for my brain to handle. Now I can’t do that — it arbitrarily fills in a ‘helpful’ block when I need the help function to alleviate the stress and anxiety due to an off box, and now I can’t even really play my daily challenges (my absolute favourite part of this app) because my brain literally can’t complete a puzzle with an empty box or off-combination set of numbers. I still play, but when I get another puzzle with those same things, I have to put down the app for days before starting a brand new game (and I hate leaving things unfinished). Maybe an option to turn the new hint function on and off? I totally understand why the hint feature has been updated in this way, because it teaches sudoku methods and rules while helping out, but for someone with autism and OCD, I personally can’t handle the new hint mechanism and I would really appreciate the option to toggle that hint mechanism off. So three stars at the moment, because this is still the best sudoku app I’ve found, even if it isn’t working for me very much any longer.

Best time
by SCWalkRunner on 2019/05/17 09:34
I enjoy playing the daily puzzles every.single.day and like that I can make a mistake every now and then without having to start over. The only feature that I find irritating is that the “best time” is far too often 5:05 which seems unlikely. I would love a ranking/ top ten on this page for the daily puzzles especially. Thanks!
Cool but
by morqve on 2019/05/17 04:22

Paid to remove ads but still have ads
by Snag234987 on 2019/05/17 04:10
I paid the $5 in-app for “remove ads” but I’m still getting ads. They are fewer and less invasive but still ads. For a $5 app I don’t want ads especially when I specifically paid to remove them. I tried to get a refund but was denied because apple deemed the reason didn’t qualify. This is a good sudoku app but now when I play I’m always going to be upset that I didn’t get what I paid for.

Nothing but repeat ads, not worth your time.
Numbers

The numbers are too close together for an I phone. We have to wait 30 seconds for a mis selection of letters due to the board’s error. Thanks
Great to terrible.
by StevenGrieves. on 2019/05/16 06:55
This game was fantastic. But they changed their hint mechanism and made it terrible. We’re competent and understand that game, the intention of the hint was so that we don’t have to do the tedious work of running through every single box and line to figure out the single piece.
Really Fun Sudoku App!!!
by tennisquuenie on 2019/05/16 03:35
Easy to use. More fun than a pencil and paper version! And the app allows u to challenge yourself by timing your games.
Ads trying to take your money
by Philly4445 on 2019/05/16 02:02
I clicked on an ad and it looked predatory. I am sure they deceive elderly people of their money. What a great business model.
Disappointed on the changes to hints.
by MeCOTA on 2019/05/16 01:37
Will probably replace this game with another sudoku due to changes in hints. Loved this game until this change. I don’t use notes in the whole puzzle but have to shut down the game to prevent auto fill of hints. Bad update 😢
Annoying Ad
by Scuba8888888 on 2019/05/16 01:03
I am fine that you have to run Ads. I know that is how you pay for the development of the game. But you have an Advertisement that sits on the bottom and continuously blinks on an envelope icon. That is soooooo annoying especially when playing a game that requires concentration like this one. The Ad doesn’t even say what it is for unless I click on it and I don’t want to give them that satisfaction. If you don’t stop running this Ad I will have to stop playing the game. If you get rid of that Ad, I will give you 5 stars because I do like the app. UPDATE- I just lowered my score to one star. When I do NOT like the change you made to hints. I know how to play, some times I’m just tired and want a hint in a specific cel I want the hint for not where YOU think you should give me the hint. Also, obnoxious Advertising with blinking icon still there today. I’m going to start looking for a new sudoku app to play now.
Awesome
by gmhlove on 2019/05/16 00:59
Finally a game that wasn’t easy. I like a challenge!! It took me about an hour to figure out how to do it without making mistakes but, I got the hang of it and finally beat the easy level. So now on the to the next level!!! :)
3 tries=3 stars
by snapelover300 on 2019/05/15 20:33
Uhhhh having only 3 tries isn’t the point of the game. Your ALLOWED to make mistakes. Having only 3 tries isn’t how you play the game. I wish it didn’t show you if you made a mistake, and just let you change it when you realize it’s wrong. I’m just letting you know that having only 3 tries ain’t how you play sudoku. Just sayin 😶

I’m confused?
by Tigercub122 on 2019/05/15 18:20
I’ve been playing sudoku for a while now and I’ve gotten pretty good at it, so I was happy to find what seemed to be a great app to play it on. I was dissatisfied when I was almost finished with my first puzzle, and it didn’t make any sense! The only number missing from a box couldn’t be placed because another pre placed number was seemingly in the wrong spot. I thought maybe it was just generated wrong, so I created a new one, but sure enough, again, the puzzle couldn’t be completed because of the pre placed numbers in the wrong places. Very frustrating. It would be a great app if the puzzles were correct!

I like the game but the new update to the hints I hate it because we can do that ourselves and I’m not a big risk taker on losing lives so please change the hints back so I can pick a spot

Love it... BUT
by Jake_1453 on 2019/05/15 02:02
I love the texture and the layout and colors of this game and the new hints are smart; However, this game—as seemingly simple as it is—devours my battery and makes my phone VERY hot. It is incredible how different my phone behaves while I am playing sudoku, it will play any other game with more intense graphics and physics normally and get hot over a very long time with some battery drainage, but when it comes to your relatively simple 2D puzzle game, it gets hot really quick and drains my battery really quick. I love sudoku and your game and it’s style, but PLEASE fix it, because other games simply don’t compare.
Great
by Hgghtb on 2019/05/15 01:35
Better than other ones I’ve tried. Easy to write in the cells and has hints that teach you how to play better

by Fnordgirl on 2019/05/13 23:23
I saw the add and decided to download it because it looked really cool but when I was looking at the directions and didn’t understand it that much it just said blah blah blah put the numbers were you think they might go then I thought that hey this might be a bit easier then I thought but a hour or so later I never won one cause I only got there tries and i know I’m not the only one and I was like REALLY REALLY and I was so sad I started looking for a different app so I hope others have a better time at this game then I did
Mistakes

Mistakes
by Labinsc4eva on 2019/05/13 10:49
Three mistakes puts pressure on you and is not realizing you are trying to learn how to play the game. Maybe increase mistakes for beginners and then gradually decrease them as we learn how to play.

Uses too much battery
by annoyedaboutbatteryconsumption on 2019/05/12 12:29
Nothing else drains my battery as much as this app. 5 hours of YouTube was only 10% of my battery consumption in 24 hours, 3 hours of this app was 70%.
2-mistake limit
by ThetaStateofMind on 2019/05/12 11:24
The mistake limit mode only allows 2 mistakes, because the 3rd mistake loses the game, like strikes. I agree with others that 3 mistakes is more the kind of game I’m looking for. I’m not here for punishment. Maybe allow multiple mistake-limit levels in future versions. Yes, I know you can turn it off; I play in both modes.

Undo The Hint Change You Made!
by Soylent Blouie on 2019/05/12 05:52
The change that developers made to the game is pretty annoying. The upside is that it makes me think harder because I don’t want to tap it! A bit too much explanation. Overall a great and simple version of a classic game.
Word ads are annoying
by Bonnie naka on 2019/05/12 05:50
Enjoy the Sudoku, but the ads for all the word games is so annoying. I will likely stop playing sudoku if they keep popping up.
Pretty solid game
by AR54321 on 2019/05/12 04:19
Overall, I really like this game. I would recommend three changes: 1. Disable the “3 strikes and out” mode and don’t show errors until there are actual conflicts on the puzzle entries. And then just show the conflicts in red, not highlight all the cells that are wrong. 2. A back button that undoes number entries, including restoring original notes. 3. You really need an “I’m guessing” mode. Perhaps display everything in a different color once guessing, making it easier to back up, and perhaps 3 colors in total to allow three threads worth of guess work. If you implemented #1 above, then you really just need an option to change entry color. As it is now, for the hardest puzzles, I screen shot them and then solve them in the photo editor using the photo markup tools. Perhaps I am not smart enough to see far enough ahead, but it really seems like the hardest puzzles require a couple guesses.

Ads You Cannot Escape
by Vail Mountain Girl on 2019/05/11 23:23
My first complaint are the ads you cannot exit out of. You have to deleted the game. Second, I agree with other users about being allowed to make mistakes, some mistakes are on accident, thinking notes are on. You give the game away when revealing the mistake, which takes the challenge away. Also, I have never hit 3 mistakes and having a game quit, but have come back to finish a game and it not be there. In fact, all my stats gone. The last time I was not able to exit out of an add, I just deleted your game all together. It is not worth it. I would not pay $5.00 for you to reveal a mistake if I make one. I want to figure that out on my own. If you have people not wanting the challenge, maybe you can have an option in settings. Not everyone needs their hand held, especially on expert level.
Well
by Sujan lee on 2019/05/11 23:06
The recent update ruined everything... When I try to use a hint, it picks a random cell not the one I needed. Second time I hit the hint for another set of game, it filled up all the empty cells with notes. That’s it. No more control over the game.. i’m losing interest... Bye.

Okay now
by Oklahoma Teacher on 2019/05/11 05:04
I’m updating my review: I wish this game still had three hints possible but, after the developer emailed me directions on how to change my settings, I now get one hint and can eventually get more if I watch ads.

Bug-y game and developer won’t acknowledge
by leichilu on 2019/05/10 20:49
All was fine at first but after playing a few months expert mode is now “broken.” I continue to encounter impossible puzzles each round and even with the so called new hints function the app continues to serve up impossible puzzles. Contacted the in app support and provided screenshots and was given a terse “there is only one solution.” No s*hit Sherlock, admit that the game is broken and fix it.
Buttons not user friendly setup
by Ronnie738 on 2019/05/10 19:50
Between the constant on/off of notes and your fat fingers selecting the wrong number, you’re more likely to loose before you even get started!

Hint update - horrible
by LVMum on 2019/05/10 17:09
I have deleted this app. I have been playing many months and used hints when I needed a specific block to contain a number. Now the hint picks a block that I can figure out myself and fills that one in. Absurd.
New hint system is no good
by chaicndicndj on 2019/05/10 14:51
They released a new hint system that picks which square it shows vs you picking which you would like revealed. 1* for “fixing” something that wasn’t broken

Great game, playable for hours
by MBonnice on 2019/05/09 13:21
I play this game for hours. I only use the expert level. I paid for it so I can enjoy it uninterrupted. What would give five stars is two features: - when all nine instances of a number have been placed, that number should go dim on the list of choices - When using the feature to pencil in a number, I’d like a way to see at a glance all the places I have penciled in a number. Maybe if I press on “3”, all the places I’ve penciled a “3” would light up.
New Hint Process
by harpy19 on 2019/05/09 04:02
I don’t like the new way hints are given. I love this game and enjoy the daily puzzles but I preferred being able to select the cell that I wanted revealed rather than the game choosing for me. Please revert back to the old way.
3 tries????
by shashonn_m on 2018/04/23 02:20
I was obsessed with this app when I first downloaded it about a month or so ago and would play several games for literally hours. I took a break from it for a week before coming back to it and I don’t know if it updated or something while I was away from it, but there are a few things now that I greatly dislike. For one, I don’t like that once I’ve used one of the numbers up it just disappears; I feel like the challenge is not noticing when I’ve used the numbers up or not and I think this new change is unnecessary. Secondly, now I see that if you put a number incorrectly in the square three times then you lose the game altogether and you have to start the whole game over. This is extremelyyyyyy annoying because I hate games where I have a small amount of times to do well in a game. What is the purpose of having “tries”? Why not continue letting me make my mistakes until I finish the round? Why interrupt me in the middle of analyzing the puzzle? Sometimes I’ll accidentally press a number by accident and so this makes it even more annoying because I hadn’t meant to use up a “try”. I wish this app would go back to the way it was before because now I don’t play it as often and even deleted it for a few days because I was so annoyed.
Ad placement lousy
by Purdueet on 2018/03/31 20:34
First, with a couple exceptions I really like the app. It has great features. For the challenge I like to play it with no extra tools or hints that I’ve made a wrong entry. At times I get to the end and there’s a problem I can’t undo easily so I just want to start over. I can’t see how to do that without “un-doing” every move, or selecting each square and hitting erase. Please add a button to clear the puzzle to start over. My second concern is irritating enough to delete the app and find another game. On my IPhone 6s it’s the tight placement of the ad banner next to the number entry at the bottom of the screen. If I play with two hands inevitably I miss the number and hit the ad banner which takes me to another page. I understand the need for ads with a free game. But, that placement is so close that I mistakenly hit the ad many many times during a puzzle and I lose my place or thought process. It is maddening. I don’t even look at the ad, I get frustrated and immediately hit the button to return to sudoku. I’m glad you get the clicks for the advertising revenue but it feels like a setup with the layout so you get those clicks. Please fix these. It would be a 5 Star review otherwise!
Great App but one suggestion!
by Mammoth48 on 2019/02/26 08:03
I don’t normally leave reviews but I feel as if there is just something missing. In my opinion, I think this game is missing some aspect of working toward a goal. I understand each game in itself is working towards finishing the puzzle, but I think it would be better if you were working for something larger. For example, after each puzzle you earn coins (more coins for higher difficulty). Saving up enough of these coins you could then purchase a new game board or background to play on instead of the regular black and white game. I like the idea of daily puzzles with trophies, but these trophies also don’t really do anything as well. Maybe getting enough trophies could unlock different types of game modes? These are just suggestions and you guys could get creative with it, I just wish there was some in game currency I could earn to purchase something else in the game as it is more fun playing when there is something to work for. Overall though great app!
Love it!
by ._G_. on 2019/04/06 16:36
The game functions well. It features settings to change whether the game is timed, whether you want limits on how many you get incorrect, along with lots of other options. It’s very simplistic without flashy colors, and has three different color options for different times of the day (white, yellow, black) similar to functions on an internet browser, so your eyes don’t strain from white light etc. It doesn’t take up much of my battery usage, and works on airplane mode/without data, so it’s nice for a flight or a road trip. The single downside to this app is the ads before and/or after each puzzle is completed, and if you have a limit on how many you can get correct it plays an ad before you can continue, but again the limit can be turned off in the settings. Overall, this app is fantastic and I definitely recommend downloading it if you are a fan of sudoku.
Last update is horrible!
by Pioens on 2018/04/20 14:44
Update: The weird game-in-game mode is gone and the original game is back!! Adjusted my ratings- Thank you! PS-I have no problems with ads like other reviewers; they’re easy to turn off in settings. Have been playing this game for a long time, and this really was my go-to relaxation, but the latest update is horrible! -The level selection at the start is annoying. -Then the forced ‘choose your daily bonus’; I don’t want any bonus!! I just want to play sudoku! -Then the 3 strikes and you have to watch an ad to continue is highly annoying and frustrating. I know I can turn off the mistake limit, but I can’t turn off this new ‘game mode’. These updates to the game are annoying and horrible and make me dislike a previously fun and relaxing game. -Also, suddenly the ads at the end of each game have become much, much longer. I’d think the developers should think about why people play Sudoku (a classic ‘brian game’!) before doing ad placement and updates in this way. Too bad you ruined a great game just so you could charge more for ads and ad-free play! Update: To the developers response; Did you read my review?! I said I know I can turn it off- but I can’t turn off the stupid game mode!! And I did send a message through the help section too, so this reply completely missed the boat.
Love the Game- Eats Battery
by CCDrew on 2018/12/01 11:48
I am a fan of the app other than battery usage. I am assuming that the all white background is what is drawing down my normally excellent battery? Perhaps I will change my phone’s screen brightness settings and see if that helps. Otherwise, this is a great version of the classic game. Update: Now that I have been playing for a few weeks I have another annoyance to note. All it takes is bumping the bottom of the screen, fat fingers, or forgetting to switch back into note mode to cause a “mistake.” Three mistakes and you’re out! I understand that you can switch this off, but I would rather there were more than three mistakes allowed in this mode. I have lost multiple games due to these unintentional mistakes which had nothing to do with gamesmanship. There is no cushion between the advertisements and the bottom of the gameplay area which causes the advertisement’s links to be bumped and new windows to pop up regularly.
Great puzzles but intrusive ads
by Sideshowcris on 2018/04/03 05:36
These puzzles are maddeningly more difficult than the last sudoku app I had on my phone. They make me feel like an utter moron for a long while before I finally crack them and feel like a superhero. The controls menu could be a little clearer (for example, “New Game” is misleading; I’d change it to “Options”), but overall the puzzle interface is intuitive and easy to use. However, the incredibly long and unskippable ads for BS Candy Crush clones or Clash of Clans-style phone RPGs really dampen my joy. What’s worse, they play before they show my final time/score, which adds a certain dread that creeps up during the home stretch of finishing a game in anticipation of the annoyance. Because of this, I rarely play more than one game at a time. I would gladly pay for a pro version to make these intrusive between-game ads go away. The puzzles are my new favorite daily challenge, but the annoying ads keep the app from five stars.
Great app!
by justy_westy on 2019/03/10 20:57
I really like this! Great puzzle game to wake up to with a cup of coffee and get my brain started. Small areas for improvement might be to: 1) have an option for “random” level of puzzle difficulty. It’s great to do the daily challenge and then find out it the level once you completed it because it’s part of the fun to guess the difficulty level (for me at least). 2) I have been doing the daily challenges for almost a year before the current ones (going back to do the ones I didn’t do before). So having an easier way to scroll through the previous months / years of puzzles would be helpful (similar to the calendar setup for iPhone where you can go month by month or view it as a yearly display and click on a certain month). Overall though love the app! Keep up the awesome work!
Suduko
by SandyBeachDM on 2017/11/16 22:03
As a senior, doctors said, "try new things," ie Games, music, etc. to spark and re-route brain cells. This Suduko is part of a 3 or 4 game self-challenge I use to check speed, problem solving & comprehension. I like this iphone Suduko better than the other app I tried. Timing and thinking have to do with whether I'm ill or not, and what effect medication change has on my brain. Also, the games are FUN❗️ It's been a bit of adjustment for my ego to realize I may never get the speed of the players younger and healthier than I am, when I make comparisons. I have played against myself and love to see the improvement. I also like the difficulty options, according to the needs of my condition. I'm impressed with the people who create the programs for these games. You are all probably the age of my grandsons, approaching 30 years of age. Thanks, SandyB 👩🏼/👵🏼 🐬👍🏼
Poor Use of Ads Kills Battery
by WowIReallyCantFindANickname on 2019/02/21 13:41
Many free games use an ad banner at the bottom of the screen and that is perfectly fine; however, this game’s ad banner actually has an impact on my IPhone 7. When I have data on (regardless of whether on WiFi or 4G) the ad banner is at the bottom of the screen and my battery life drops VERY quickly while also increasing the temperature of my phone. When I have my data off and no ad appears, no temperature or battery issues. The problem of course is I don’t want to sacrifice my ability to use my phone’s features like IMessage or email over a game of sudoku when I’m not at home using a charger. Great game were it not for this issue. I would assume this has something to do with poor programming on the side of the ad banner where it’s somehow running on maximum overdrive or something to constantly stream information regarding the ad instead of however other games download that banner info.
Game nice, ads HORRIBLE, overpriced
by chiphines on 2018/06/02 22:25
Update: received a note from the developer saying that the game is "completely free" thereby missing the points I was trying to make. First, while it is true that one doesn't pay money to get the game, the user does pay a much bigger price than normal in terms of having to watch relatively lengthy ads between each game. Second, they do in fact get paid for showing the ads which is why we don't pay, and if we want to get rid of ads we have to pay the to do it. IMHO, they don't get the basic economics wherein they have to "charge" the consumer no more than (s)he is willing to pay. Every second the consumer has to sit waiting to play is time they aren't enjoying. So I'm now using my old version of Sudoku by another vendor that does require ads but they don't take up nearly as much time. That one is nowhere as pretty, and it doesn't show all 9 numbers with their version of the pencil. I hope they get the point - cut ad time in half and they will get more users. I do like all but a few things in the product, but won't do much with this unless the "cost" of using it goes down. Previous input: The good: game is nice and looks good. A few fixes would be nice The bad: over priced $8.00 is too much. The Ugly: you get twice as many ads, they don't have shortcuts, they appear when you finish a game 2 ads, and again if you start another. Really not worth the trouble when other games work the same if not as pretty.
Was great before the recent update
by HellboundKnight on 2018/04/19 13:15
This has been one of my favorite apps for a long time. Clean, simple, and easy to use with good puzzles. The recent update has introduced far too many advertisements though. I understand the need for adverts as an important revenue stream, and had absolutely no problem sitting through them whenever I began a new game considering it allowed me to play the games for free. The recent update however has now made it so that every time I open the app, I have to sit through the same advertisements over and over just to finish one darn game. I mean, at least switch up the ads or something, but having to sit through the half minute of adverts numerous times just to complete one game because I don’t have half an hour to dedicate to sit down with it is too much. And I’m sorry but $7.99 is just too high for removing ads from a Sudoku app. That’s just not worth it. Thank you guys for the great service up to now, but unless the adverts go back to between every game, I’ll be looking for another app.
Fix the hint system
by ShadowNinja5 on 2019/05/01 13:19
Overall the app has been pretty great, but with the latest update the hint system has become totally non-functional. It was incredibly helpful when it simply filled a single spot I chose. But now it auto-fills a nearly complete row/column, which does nothing to help. I prefer playing the game with number-first inputs because it’s just helpful to me personally, so I often end up with nearly complete rows that I’ll get to when I get to the number that completes them. I don’t need hints for those, I need hints to help when it’s 50/50 where a number will go. Edit: oh, so now it’s finding even more ways to avoid being helpful. I know how to use the pencil feature. I know the strategies of how to best use the pencil feature. What I don’t know is the 50/50 chance that I’ll make a third mistake and have to either start over or wait through one of your terrible 45 second ads. Strategies only go so far. Fix the hints ASAP, or I’ll delete the game.
Needs more challenges/long ads
by Tdtd1970 on 2019/03/29 16:03
Recently finished all the available daily challenges up to current, looks like only goes back about two years. I play all the levels easy to expert based on time available and how relaxing, levels seem pretty good mix of difficulty. Would like to see more badges or challenges or some kind of themes for backgrounds. Have tried various sudoku games, this is the one I have kept going back to and do at least one game daily. Like that can go back and do previous daily challenges. Maybe would like option to replay particular boards where I previously took longer than average or had too many errors and had to retry. Only annoying thing is the ads have been getting longer and longer, video, and sometimes when I do not feel I have touched anything in the middle of playing it sends me to the App Store as if an ad has been triggered.
Guessing Game
by Cherlock58 on 2018/11/15 17:29
Since the last update they are not solvable without guessing. Not just one guess is required but you must guess multiple times. So they’ve basically turned it into a guessing game. A reply from the developer to my review claims.... “If you have big experience in solving sudoku and knowledge about different strategies, you can solve them without hints and the method of trial and error.” This is NOT TRUE, at least not since an apparent update, and when playing the daily challenge. I’ll try the regular puzzles and see if they’re solvable without trial and error IOW guessing, but the daily challenge isn’t. Somehow it was set, not by me, to three errors and you lose, maybe it has something to do with that setting. Regardless it’s become quite disappointing to spend time only to get to where you must guess multiple times and then lose. I like a brain challenge not a guessing game.
Great features! Great app support!
by Freddo367 on 2017/09/22 12:23
I love this app's customization features. You can toggle features such as highlighting duplicates, or every one of a number, auto correct, etc. So when I play I turn most of them off, but when I hand my phone to a child we turn most of them back on. It really helps to customize the level of difficulty and make the experience exactly what you would like it to be. Also, their support is amazing! There was one pop up ad that was hijacking the app and driving me nuts. I was going to give it a bad review, but noticed some reviews said they received a response from support and thought I'd try it too. Within 24 hours of contacting them I received an email telling me they blocked the annoying ad. And they did!
Ads You Cannot Escape
by Vail Mountain Girl on 2019/05/11 23:23
My first complaint are the ads you cannot exit out of. You have to deleted the game. Second, I agree with other users about being allowed to make mistakes, some mistakes are on accident, thinking notes are on. You give the game away when revealing the mistake, which takes the challenge away. Also, I have never hit 3 mistakes and having a game quit, but have come back to finish a game and it not be there. In fact, all my stats gone. The last time I was not able to exit out of an add, I just deleted your game all together. It is not worth it. I would not pay $5.00 for you to reveal a mistake if I make one. I want to figure that out on my own. If you have people not wanting the challenge, maybe you can have an option in settings. Not everyone needs their hand held, especially on expert level.
Battery DRAINER
by aaroncastonguay on 2019/05/05 20:42
First, I only have one real issue with this app. The battery consumption. I still play it every day and love completing the daily challenges. How much battery it consumes is completely unacceptable. You can literally watch your battery decrease by at least 4% a minute. What exactly is this app doing/collecting in the background that is causing this?!? It’s shady as all get out. I would have bought the ad-less version a long time ago if the battery consumption was lower. I don’t believe in paying money for an app that more or less requires you to be connected to a power source. To the developers - I don’t want to hear about how you are aware of the problem and to stay tuned for future updates. You have been saying this to others for a long time now. JUST FIX IT. This is ridiculous. Please, along with others who love everything else about your app, listen to what is being said and actually FIX (not say you’re working on) your app.
Nice and clean but more ads is bad
by noctis.d on 2019/04/13 15:34
The game has a really nice and clean design. Notes appear very well. The thing I hate after the most recent update is that you have made the app "pause" everytime I go out of it. When I return into the app, I'm not greeted with the sudoku puzzle but with a "pause" screen which requires me to tap on a "continue" button to show me the puzzle again. Every time I do this, I also get an ad.... It kills all the experience and I have no time to watch an ad before I can concentrate on the puzzle again. Previously, it was not so. Deleted the app. If you remove this annoying update, I'll gladly come back to this game. Edit after developer's response: It's good that you'll take it into consideration, however, I have moved on to a less intrusive app. Keep improving, although the solution is quite simple.
Those ads are not good
by Bjparkinson on 2019/04/10 05:30
I was enjoying this game initially, but I am growing increasingly frustrated with the long advertisement pop-ups that I have to sit through in order to play. I understand that the game is free, but the advertisements get longer and longer as the game goes on - especially after three incorrect answers. It is the same with other games in the same family. I have stopped playing them because I can’t stand the advertisements, which are too long!! I have other games on my phone that don’t require that I sit through the advertisements in their entirety. 30 second adds are too long and the way you have placed them in the middle of the game, makes it all the more annoying and irritating. I like your particular version of Sudoku, but not enough to keep playing with all of the ads.
Differences between IPhone and IPad versions
by princessleah1007 on 2018/09/10 04:17
I downloaded the app and have become, like most other reviewers, addicted to the game. I think (having read other reviews) the updates seems to make the game better and I hope my feedback helps improve user experience. My husband decided to download the app on his iPhone X, after I was hooked. I noticed that between my iPhone X and my husband’s (iPhone X as well) there were differences. He has a layout that looks like there are different levels, almost like candy crush, but I don’t. We checked versions, deleted/reinstalled, etc. and found no differences between the specs of the version reinstalled on our phones. It’s the strangest thing...so to those who download it, beware of the differences you may see in the game based on your device (including iPads, we checked that too.).
Unbearable ads play sound while phone is muted
by AgnesMcGee on 2018/02/13 01:08
I have been using this app daily for several months now, and have really enjoyed it. BUT I RECOMMEND THAT YOU DON’T INSTALL IT. Just recently it has started serving up ads to me that blast sound EVEN THOUGH I HAVE THE AUDIO SWITCH TURNED OFF ON MY PHONE. It shows a complete lack of respect for their users that this company engages in this practice. If my sound is turned off, it’s because I don’t want my phone to make noise! To have an ad come blasting out of it all of a sudden — and often with NO WAY TO STOP IT — is embarrassing to me and rude to those around me. I reported the problem to them, and sent screen shots and the time and date it happened three times, at their request. But clearly they believe that allowing it to continue will somehow benefit their advertisers. I have deleted the app and won’t reinstall it, or any other products from this company. One of the most infuriating things I’ve ever experienced with an app.
Excessive amount of 30 second ads kills the game.
by Possumlady on 2018/06/19 21:10
Nice Gameplay but the length of ads kill it. I don’t mind ads normally, but these are above and beyond most apps. The time consumed by the ads makes the game unplayable. Until they shorten them I would suggest playing a different Sudoku app. Many games need ads. We recognize this and normally are ok with it. The amount of ads isn’t the issue, it is the fact that they are 30 second ads and they happen after each game, if you select ‘second chance’, and some 30 second ads after hitting new game. (Mostly 5 second skips here) This time adds up and goes far beyond the norm. 5-10 second ads are plenty long enough to entice gamers. When they run long it frustrates the consumers and not only do they not click the advertised product, they delete your product as well. I hope you guys consider adjusting this, it would be a great game, it just is not worth the hassle as is. EDIT FOLLOWING DEVELOPER RESPONSE: Some ads can be skipped after 5 seconds. The ones I refer to have a 29 second timer and no X until it expires. The 5 second ads are normal and expected on ad supported games, the others are excessive. You are not acknowledging this exists so I doubt it will be fixed. I’m Deleting the app and moving on, No need for support to tell me how to count down from 30 or hit the X, but thanks for the offer.
I love this but...
by LowPoe on 2019/01/04 05:23
This is my favorite sudoku game and I don’t mind the 3 tries, but I was doing so well. I’ve completed about 4 months since I recently join and I just started October, but now my game freezes every time I go on. This has happened before, but the only thing that solved it was deleting the app, which deletes all my data!! I worked so hard to complete the daily sudoku and I don’t want to delete them :( but I’ve tried refreshing the app and restarting my phone but nothing has worked. I know if I want to actually play I have to delete it but I don’t want to delete all the trophies I got. This needs to be fixed because I rely on this app when I’m feeling nervous and now I can’t keep my mind busy since my favorite app keeps freezing.
Horrid
by that one chickkkkk on 2018/07/14 13:48
When I downloaded this game I was excited and in hope of getting better at sudoku. Now I didn’t realize that it only let you have 3 mistakes. In my opinion not at all fun when you can’t have a few mistakes. I’d rather like it to be where you can place it there even if it’s wrong and the number won’t disappear until they are all placed right instead of limiting your mistakes. It could be colorful too, that might have helped with the sudden wave of boredom I got from seeing black and white everywhere instead of having a pop of color or a theme to it. Usually I love sudoku but this made it worse for me and now I don’t want to play sudoku anymore thanks to this app.
Annoying Ad
by Scuba8888888 on 2019/05/16 01:03
I am fine that you have to run Ads. I know that is how you pay for the development of the game. But you have an Advertisement that sits on the bottom and continuously blinks on an envelope icon. That is soooooo annoying especially when playing a game that requires concentration like this one. The Ad doesn’t even say what it is for unless I click on it and I don’t want to give them that satisfaction. If you don’t stop running this Ad I will have to stop playing the game. If you get rid of that Ad, I will give you 5 stars because I do like the app. UPDATE- I just lowered my score to one star. When I do NOT like the change you made to hints. I know how to play, some times I’m just tired and want a hint in a specific cel I want the hint for not where YOU think you should give me the hint. Also, obnoxious Advertising with blinking icon still there today. I’m going to start looking for a new sudoku app to play now.
Bad Ad
by WISEnotCHEAP on 2018/10/26 16:02
One of the issues I have is not with the product but an add for your product. You have a game that is suppose to be supporting thinking and learning yet you have an ad where you have someone playing while in class. This means they are not paying attention in class since playing. What a dumb message to send. As a parent who battles with my child about his grades and cellphone usage at school, I’m furious. As a teacher who competes with cellphone usage in class I am angered even more. Time and a place for all things and promoting using your product at the wrong time is wrong. I ask that you remove the ad showing the student playing your game while in class. Response to Response: Time and a place for pleasure and a time for being serious. You don’t play games in class! I wrote my thoughts almost a year ago and still get responses poorly written by the maker. STOP HARASSING ME! You made your point and I had mine.
Shocking and Inappropriate
by AuntieAdel on 2017/11/05 02:28
I love the fame sudoku. I used to play it very frequently as a child so when I saw the advertising of the app come up as part of my Instagram feed I didn’t hesitate to search you out and download your app. But the commercials are very long and difficult to exist out of which was annoying by itself but today right after coming home from telling my nieces and nephews to download the app and enjoy the game. I opened the app to find a naked porn commercial interrupting my game. I was so shocked I abruptly closed out of the app and forgot to get the name out of the commercial for you. But I need to make you aware that that’s very offensive and needs to be removed immediately!
Game within a game!
by Stingraystripe on 2018/06/15 21:33
Because this app drains your battery like no other, you can create a game within a game where you guess how much battery life will be sacrificed per game (hint: it’s about 2% per minute, even on airplane mode... so you really have to wonder what it’s doing in the background!). And it’s really fantastic in the winter. If you’re outside. Without gloves. Cuz this thing will heat your phone right up - literally hot to the touch! Note to “developer” - please spare me the canned response of ‘we’re working on this so stay tuned for future updates.’ Fact- YOUR app has only made my phone get hotter to the touch and burn even more battery with every release. Seriously, just WTH are you gathering in the background for this app?! Ridiculous! Sodoku is just basic math - NO reason whatsoever to make the phone work hard. Unless you’ve got some really sketchy stuff you’re up to. Steer clear of this app and this developer!!!
Love but a few ?'s
by AJBC3 on 2018/10/01 04:50
Hi! I love this app! It's well put together. I was just wondering if there is a way to track my times? I know it keeps the best time in a log but I'd really like to know my times for all games so when I play a game I can compare times later on in that day. I don't know if this make sense but I just like to track my times better and not just the "best" ever time for that level. Also, if there a reason the numbers come up 2 different colors once I lock them in? Couldn't find info on that in settings or anything. I'm semi new to sudoku so I wasn't sure if these colors meant anything specific? Other than that, I love the game & I thank you for it!
HATE this new update!
by TooBZ2Bbored on 2018/04/22 04:03
This is what I said before the update: Love that you can put the pencil marks in easily, that if you fill a column with the same number the pencil mark erases. Easy to use and navigate the site. Only suggestion I have is to make the first game that pops up be an option for the daily challenge. NOW: HATE this! Going to look for a new app. SO bummed because I really liked it. Now the freaking Toon Blast ads after every game (and before some games) last forever and sometimes there’s two things to click to get out of them. I am NEVER going to play Tune Blast so STOP!!! Also HATE that you all of a sudden get 3 tries and if you make 3 mistakes all of a sudden you’re locked out unless you watch a freaking ad! UGH!!! Why do you change one of only two games I play daily into something that’s a pain! You’ve got a couple of days to fix it otherwise I’m done and deleting!
Ads, ads, ads, and more ads
by break the norm on 2018/04/09 09:54
Two of the same ads back to back (oftentimes that you cant even close) before and after every single game you play...seeing the same ads over and over, game after game gets old super quick. And as of April 2018, it’s $7.99 to go ad free!!! I usually pay to remove ads and I really wanted to for this app because the interface is pretty good compared to other sudoku apps. But no way no how I’d pay eight bucks to remove ads when there are so many other sudoku apps that’ll let you go ad free for 99 cents, maybe $2 max. Developers must be desperate of greedy...I dunno. Deleted after a few days. At least diversify ur ads for cryin out loud. At least make good use of the ads that you let on the app twice in-between every game played. Right now, the way the ads are placed, along with the ridiculous price to go ad free makes this app a must-delete.
Excellent game with minor flaw
by jdcarlsonma on 2018/08/10 16:10
I’ve had this game for several months now, and (after turning off some obnoxious ads) it’s pretty decent. The customizations are very good. The pencil mode is a little rough to use, but works ok when used with undo— which you’ll need after invariably hitting a non-pencil number by mistake. The flaw though is that too many of the games require a guess. Real sudoku, at least in my opinion, always uses logic to solve the puzzle. But too many of the games on expert mode halt at a point where no more constraints exist, and you have to just “guess” to continue. None of the syndicated newspaper games are like that, so if this bothers you, you might like this game at least one star less.
Worst app ever!!!!!!!!😤‼️ this is a big mistake!!!!!!!
by #cutehearti♥️🐶 on 2018/01/04 02:56
I hated this app! It's the worst! There are no ads, thankfully! Easy is hard, not easy! Well, maybe it is easy, but still, it's bad! None of the rows or columns match up. It takes you minutes (what seems hours) to complete a single puzzle! It's good for Big-Brain-Thinkers. (or smart people) I deleted it, but it was hard. I'd prefer a hard word cross game instead. But, I'm also tired. So, it really could be a great game. Sorry if this is a big mistake. Take other people's word for it, not mine. Bye, hope you liked this review! I'm super sorry this is a really big mistake! I was just really tired that night. But I'll stick with this other sudoku game, sorry. I'm so sorry about your app. I feel real bad. I'm show me great apps. ☹️😭😐
Clean, Simple, Fun
by Brucebrucerson on 2018/02/08 22:03
There are absolutely no complaints I can make about this game. It isn’t something new or original, obviously sudoku has been around for a long time, but the interface is easy to use and makes play convenient. It feels clean, simple, and intuitive. Some things I might like to see in the app going forward are possible guide levels. I think tutorials on sudoku techniques ranging from beginner to advanced would be a wonderful addition. It could show players the different strategies and scenarios to use them in order to improve themselves, as well as circumventing the need to use online guides.
The advertisements
by REHeggie on 2018/12/29 02:10
Overall it’s your standard sudoku app with all of the necessary features for a good experience. It’s fast with a slick look. I would have kept using it, if it weren’t for the advertisements. There is a constant animated banner running at the bottom and you have to watch through an advertisement whenever you want a hint or to submit your score. Sometimes it even send you to the App Store for the app that it is promoting. There’s really no escaping this dynamic which remains a distraction throughout the experience. There are too many other free Sudoku apps out there to keep hassling with this one. Keep looking and you’ll find another option that isn’t drenched in advertisements the way this one is.
Very relaxing.
by Mad CeJay on 2018/10/08 16:01
I know a lot of people say that about a lot of apps and games. But this one is for me for sure. I have an anxiety disorder. So when things get a little to over stimulating. I jump into my sudoku. It calms and refocuses me. Give it a shot. It’s simplistic look is not overwhelming. Very easy on the eyes. Not a lot jumping around or other distractions around the screen. But do not think it is just simple. It is very fun and has challenging levels. You can really tell that the creators took their time with the design and interface of this app. It stands out of the barrage of sudoku games in the App Store. Get it. You will enjoy it!
glitches?
by freston88 on 2018/06/27 01:15
i love sudoku and i loved playing on this app until here recently it was great BUT the past couple games i have played i will put in a number and it tells me it’s wrong so i go and double check myself and it can’t be any other number so i watch an ad to get a free hint and then use that hint to tell me the number that goes there and guess what it’s the number i typed in!! i thought ok maybe i made a mistake and hit the wrong number but then in another game same issue and i double checked that i hit the right number!! i love a challenge but since it only gives 3 mistakes before it ends the game it’s really starting to annoy me to the point of finding a different sudoku app and deleting this one for good!!!
Sadness
by Nonipanoni on 2018/05/24 08:56
I've had this app for months now and I really enjoy it. I play it every night before bed because it's calming and it makes me tired. For months now I had my heart set on finishing all of the daily challenges for each month this whole year, which I did and I was moving onto last year. Without knowing I accidentally deleted the app and in turn it deleted all my process. I really love this app but that's almost 6 months of daily challenges gone and I'm really upset about it. I think for the future maybe add in an account feature so people don't lose their process. Keep up the good work and thanks for making my favorite suduko app❤️
Ads- too many, too long & the same 2 ads!
by hardworking2018 on 2019/02/16 05:40
I love this game!!! But there are way too many “ads” for other games! It might not be so bad if the ads were for games that I don’t already have! I have been playing Toon Blast and Wordscapes for several months so I really hate to have to sit through those ads just to get my 2nd Chance in Sudoku! And these ads in Sudoku seem to be even longer than the ads in my other games! Very disappointed.... **Update- after posting this review, I scrolled down and read many other reviews. I see the exact same response from the developers in answer to any review that mentions “too many and/or too long ads”. This leads me to believe the developers do not actually care about this problem. “Thank you for sharing”!
Unsolvable Puzzles
by Reverend Slug Slime on 2018/07/11 22:16
Would’ve given it 5 stars except for the fact that I have run into 3 unsolvable puzzles so far, out of roughly 200 played. I double checked them online to make sure I wasn’t just stuck. A newbie or inexperienced player might become extremely frustrated and turned off from an otherwise relaxing, educational, mind strengthening game and I imagine an experienced player might just say “uh-uh” and erase the app altogether. Other than the unsolvables, the way the app functions and plays is fantastic. Very easy to use once you find the settings tab. Could probably use a tutorial or something to direct you to it immediately.
Veeery good, no complaints.
by Sanshuba on 2019/02/06 02:13
Ads are non-intrusive, you can choose the difficulty and play for free. Such a great and relaxing game, probably I’ll never delete this app from my device. And you can change the background, so I put it dark and numbers white, so I can play at night without loosing my drowsiness and it saves battery as well. I have no complaints about this game. Ah, and you can choose if you want limited tries or not. It is good because it is a choice, beginners can learn with unlimited tries while more experienced ones can put 3 the limit of three tries. Thank you developer(s).
Updated review
by Lexie2u2 on 2018/07/22 01:29
I first gave this 3 stars. I didn’t like to have to start over after 3 mistakes. App developer took the time to email me. There’s a setting to turn that off. There’s also the option to make it ad free. It’s hard sometimes to remember to turn pencil on & off or sometimes I meant to pick “5” & just tapped the wrong number. The best thing about this app is that they get back to you personally at your email address to address any complaints you have. Personal service doesn’t happen a lot these days & I appreciate it. So now 5 Star app IMO!!! Would highly recommend.
Ok app, but clunky
by Epicrpgfan on 2019/03/19 18:44
Overall the aesthetic looks better than the other big sudoku app, but it has more problems. First, the app takes way too much power, my phone is often hot after playing 1-2 games. Sure that might be the case for some graphics intensive games, but sudoku? While the game looks cleaner, I feel like there’s a but too much visual clutter when you click on a number. It just makes it more confusing. Second, the ads. There are much more ads than the other sudoku app. In addition, one ad I got had an invisible close button... just a really cheap tactic to try to get me to look at that app. For these reasons I’d go with the other sudoku app, but this one is OK too just for casual fun
Ad-HEAVY, $$$$ for ad-free
by DocB_007 on 2018/06/04 03:14
250 K ratings, huh?? REALLY? IS THAT how much you had to pad just to get your overall above 4.5? I just plain DON’T BELIEVE those numbers, unless there are a LOT of folks out there who don’t mind feeling like patsies. This feels more like extortion than any game I’ve tried recently. The ads STOP the show between ALL games AND at other times as well, they are very obnoxious, demanding nearly half a minute or so & two or more screens (with forced wait on EACH screen). Ads are SO disruptive I can’t IMAGINE playing this more than a handful of times before either paying TEN BUCKS(!!!!) to remove them, or (and this seems the only logical choice) DELETING THE GAME & finding a MUCH less heavy-handed, overpriced version among the MANY sudoku options available. The interface IS nice (when it’s not being eclipsed by the ads), and it’s just TOO BAD they’ve chosen such guerrilla tactics to market this. I, for one, HATE feeling trapped, duped, or forced to go along with someone’s idea to try to sell me something or make money off me. Try a little less greed (I’d have been ok paying a couple bucks for this, but TEN???), a little less coercion, and (this is the MOST important) a little more RESPECT for clients/ potential customers!
Good game, ads are awful
by MrpMax on 2019/03/05 06:21
Love this game, I’ve got almost a year complete of daily challenges under my belt. My concern regards the ads. I can tolerate the amount of ads the game has, and it’s understandable they’re in the game. Almost every time I begin a new game or finish a game, I get an ad. However, the problem is that my screen freezes on the pop ups when they appear. To exit out of the ads, I have to completely shut down the app. The screen doesn’t seem to work when an ad pops up. Perhaps I may need to reinstall the app, perhaps the game is buggy, but regardless I thought I’d mention it. Overall great app for procrastinating.
Needs two simple features
by Joe in Kzoo on 2018/07/25 04:21
Overall pretty good, but has two quirks which should be easy to fix: 1. If you’re in the middle of a game and have to interrupt it and leave the game it doesn’t take you back to the game you were playing. If you don’t remember which game number you were playing, you have to select one, and if it’s wrong it warns you that your previous game will be lost. Very kludgy way to get back to the same game. 2. When you complete a game it gives you an ad then displays a congratulation screen. This screen does not display the game number, and if you don’t remember there is no way of finding out.
The app is good the number buttons trick you
by SylarUchiha on 2018/06/11 22:08
The game give you 3 chances for the wrong answers, after that you have a couple seconds to accept and watch an annoying add for a life, or to just start a new game. I thought it was me that time to time I press the wrong number bye accident, at least until I start playing with a stylus. You can’t go more precise than a pen stylus. The game on purpose press the wrong number, usually the one at the right of the one that you press. Doing so it forces you to lose, so you don't have any other choice. Or you watch the annoying add, or just star from scratch. Whatever is happening is really annoying. To bad for a good app. Im deleting it in ... 3...2...1... Good bye
Addicted 💕
by Gdundsish on 2018/12/08 01:11
This game brings back quite a few memories. When I was younger my grandma taught me how to play Sudoku and got me addicted. This game also has a way of always changing things up so you don’t get too bored. It challenges your brain which I love since I am a higher curricula student. I often download puzzle games to find out they are way too easy and end up getting to level 500+ or completing all levels within less that half an hour or so. This game is worth the download and I can’t thank the developers enough for making a worthy game!
