5.0 out of 5 stars Very Pleasantly Surprised! November 17, 2010
I have tried other Sudoku games for the Kindle in the past and found them very difficult to work with in terms of of entering text and navigating the puzzles. This game was a pleasant surprise. Electronic Arts has come very close to recreating traditional play with pen and paper.

The controls are logical and well thought out. If you are playing on a Kindle with no numbers, there is a legend that clearly shows what letter represents each number. It is also quite simple to navigate the puzzle.

One of the best features is the ability to put notes in a cell as you work out where the numbers go. This is one feature that I found missing from other Sudoku games, especially computerized ones. The only improvement that I would like to see is the ability to mark an entire row or column instead of just one cell.

I disagree totally with the review that states that all the games are easy. I tried various levels and there is definitely a jump in the difficulty from one level to the next. (For the record, I play frequently but am by no means a Sudoku master.)

I own several computerized Sudoku games. For me, this is the best Sudoku game I have found so far. I highly recommend it to Sudoku fans.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Sudoku Game Will Test Your Abilities..... November 17, 2010
Verified Purchase
It looks like EA has done it again, with another great game for the Kindle. I have been playing Sudoku puzzles since they were known as "Number Place" in Dell Crossword Magazines back in the Seventies. I consider myself an expert at them, and I find the tougher level puzzles on this Kindle version to be challenging.

Due to another review claiming that all levels of puzzles were easy, I started out with an "Insane" level puzzle, and I was not disappointed. I finally solved it, but it was indeed challenging. If you like Sudoku puzzles, you will love this Kindle version.

Don't worry about having to bring up your "symbols" chart on your Kindle, as that won't be necessary. You place a number by using your 5-way controller to reach the square you want, then pressing a keypad letter corresponding to that number (Q,W,E,R,T,Y,U,I,O = 1,2,3,4,5,6,7,8,9). There is a legend showing this at the bottom of the screen, and it can be turned off if you don't need it.

There are a few nice features included too. You can make notes in each square so that you can keep track of which numbers you believe could possibly go into each square. If you find a game too tough, you can also use the "AutoFill" option, which fills in all the possible numbers for each square just as if you had made the notes yourself.

There is also a "Hint" option, in case you get stuck and need a little help, although unless you are a novice, you probably won't need this unless you are trapped in a very tough puzzle.

The one option I really like is the ability to input puzzles from newspapers, magazines, etc. Although this game has thousands of puzzles, it's nice knowing that I can get out some of my magazines and put some of my tougher puzzles in the game to solve.

3.0 out of 5 stars Numbers Hard to See November 27, 2010
By Barbara
Verified Purchase
I'm a Sudoku addict and was thrilled to find it available for the Kindle. This is a really good application -- navigation, etc. is fine; however, I got a headache from squinting trying to see the numbers I entered. Seems like there should be a way to make them more visible yet still differentiated from the pre-entered numbers. Couldn't see the difference between threes & eights among other things (and this was with the help of reading glasses). I gave up after doing one puzzle.

2.0 out of 5 stars hard to see and no way to turn off hints February 9, 2011
Verified Purchase
the numbers that the user enters in this game are a very light outline of a number, making it hard to play unless you are sitting directly beneath a lamp. i like to play in the evenings before bed and the light is not very bright in my bedroom, so it was really hard to see.

the numbers are the first row of letters on the QWERTY keyboard with no way to change it. the Puzzazz version uses QWE/ASD/ZXC which is a bit more intuitive. i kept having to check the legend in this version to figure out which was the right one. the Puzzazz version is easier to use by touch.

also, i have turned off every sort of hint or validation option that i could find, yet every time i finish a row or a block, it flashes if it is filled in correctly.

that kinda defeats the point of doing the puzzle without hints.

i went with the sudoku by Puzzazz, even tho it's more expensive, it is much easier to see and the hints actually stay turned off if you turn them off.

so, even tho this is cheaper, i don't recommend it. i should have went with the other one first.

4.0 out of 5 stars Nice addition to the Kindle November 21, 2010
By Rachel
Verified Purchase
I really enjoyed this version of Sudoku. I'd previously downloaded a free Sudoku puzzle book here at, but it didn't fit my Kindle 3 (one row was cut off), and scrolling was a pain.

This fits the screen perfectly, and the legend reminding what keys correspond to what numbers and shortcuts was very helpful.

I tried a couple of the puzzles in there, and then input a puzzle I'd had in a wonderfully hard puzzle book I have in paper format, that I'd originally not been able to do on paper. It took a long time, but the notes feature was very helpful and it was great to have a second chance at it. (Finally got it!) I was surprised that the program recognized when I put in a wrong entry and was able to provide a hint (I just tested the hint feature because I was curious if it would work in this case -- I deleted the entry immediately afterwards because I didn't want to cheat <G>). I guess the program is able to solve the puzzle on its own?

It does seem to be heavy on the battery. I haven't tried any of the other games, so I don't know how it compares in that regard.
