I love Sudoku games and previous ones I downloaded for the Kindle were very disappointing. Not only is this game well displayed, it comes with 100 puzzles - excellent for the price. The Instructions are very clear and detailed (I recommend you skim through them), and all appears to work quickly and easily. Very user friendly.

PROS:

- This is easy to use and offers three levels of difficulty (Easy, Medium, Hard).
- The EASY level games are easy - if you are used to playing Sudoku games. Otherwise, they are great for warm-ups or learning the game for the newbie.
- The help tips are clearly listed below the gameboard, which makes it easy to use.
- The Hint option allows you to choose the number/square you want to reveal.
- The numbers are large and easy to read.
- Game play is saved if you exit out in

CONS:

- Having to remember what letter is what number. (see below)
- Not enough games - I want more!

On the whole - excellent puzzles and price.

GAMEBOARD:

- My Kindle does not have a number key pad, but using the top row of buttons (Q, W, E, ...) as (1,2,3...) works just fine.
- The Menu button brings up options such as Undo, remove one mistake, TOC and more.
- When you finish a game you can go directly to another game at the same level, or hit "Menu" and go back to the TOC.

this is a great sudoku game. the puzzles are easy to use and lots of fun.

a reviewer said it was hard to remember which keys represented which numbers ~ not true! it couldn't be easier.

at setup time you specify whether you want to use the top row or an adding machine type set up of a cluster of 9 keys. each puzzle has a 'legend' wih it that shows you the numbers and the functions of the buttons (such as undo and hint).

i just have 'pros' and no 'cons' for all 3 versions of sudoku puzzles from Puzzazz (sudoku, wordoku, and symdoku.

When Sudoku became popular several years ago I quickly became addicted and could not put my pen and tablet down. I forced myself not to purchase a new book once I completed my last one. But darn you Puzzazz and Amazon! There you were, just staring at me on my Kindle and so cheap to boot. I'm now addicted once again and am thouroughly enjoying it, maybe even more than before.

Having done quite a few Sudoku puzzles in the past I can honestly say these by Puzzazz are some of the best. Not only is the usability incredibly simple and intuative, but they are not your typical randomly generated puzzles you see from other companies. When it says more difficult puzzle it really is!

I would highly recommend Sudoku Unbound by Puzzazz, you really can't get any better.

This is the first game I have downloaded for my Kindle and I like it a lot. It was easy to get started and the puzzles are fun. Solving the puzzles on a Kindle is easier than paper since I can keep track of my notes on the squares without having to cross out or erase my notes in pen or pencil. If you like sudoku, this is a great app.

Besides the superior design in navigation and info display and set up options, this game also offers superior and very flexible help in gameplay (more about this later).

I really like the set up choice where you can enter as small numbers in each cell each number that cell CAN be at the first press of the number and the number it MUST be at the second press. You can alternatively choose the small numbers to mean what that cell CANNOT be if you prefer. You can also choose the first press to enter IS and the second to change to MIGHT BE. What great choice! If you need to remove a noted number you just go back to that cell and type the number again. If you make a mistake, the back key will undo all moves one at a time to the beginning (restoring overwritten notes is especially thoughtful).

I also have mine set to display the numbers in the 9 square number pad though I actually use the qwertyuio layout during play (and both work) ... more choice! I love that I don't need to press the alt key to create the numbers. I love that I can change difficulty level before starting a new puzzle.

Now about the excellent help choices...
Help file explanations of how to figure the logic.
Remove one mistake.
Remove all mistakes.
Reveal current cell.
... and my favorite ...
Fill all notes! This one can save a lot of time if you like. It fills notes based on the most basic logic. I use CAN be notes and it fills in cell note numbers where that number does not appear in the same row, column, or square, but it does not do for you the more advanced logic possibilities, such as if a number appears only in cells the bottom row of a square then it cannot be in cells in the bottom row of the other two squares in the same row, or if two cells in the same square, row, or column contain only the same two possible numbers then those two numbers cannot appear anywhere else in that particular row, column, or square. Fill all hints will also pay attention to the MUST BE cells you have filled in, and will update to remove possibilities affected by cells you have solved.

I never used the possibility notes before getting this Sudoku game, but I love them now. Because the Back key works so well, if I get stuck, I can choose one possibility and follow the chain until it dead ends and then go back to follow the other. Or I can give it my best guess then Remove All Mistakes to see if I'm right and then Fill All Notes if I was wrong.

I love that I have all the choices I can think of about how to play and how much or how little help I want. It is a VERY well designed game. Highly recommended for logic lovers.

I have also purchased another Sudoku for my Kindle, and it is awful....can't look at the entire page without scrolling around, which makes it hard to solve the puzzle, you have to go the the symbols screen to type the numbers, but not on this one! This one is easy to use, beautifully dislayed, and has keys on the letters to represent the numbers. Love it!

I've finished the first 24 of the puzzles and I had to archive it because it was getting in the way of my reading. Very good interface, easy to navigate. You have to get this game!

This is really cool. It is just like the book version but digital. Great user interface and design. It was really easy to learn and use.

The first handful you are learning how--not to solve Sudoku--but how to use this version of the game. Then, have fun.

Easy to see what could go where if you tend to scribble every number that could go in a box--they're laid out like the numbers on the phone in each box.

I did find that my (erratic at best) skills improved dramatically as I went along.

More done the same way would be good!

Pretty slick looking Kindle game--plus I don't really know how to play Sudoku so I appreciated the guide to the game itself. (I've played a few other of these games where they just assume you know how to play!)
