Sudoku Works is the latest of many Sudoku puzzle apps released for the Kindle. Unlike the other puzzles, however, this is an “unlimited” set of puzzles at multiple levels. The style of play in each of these games is slightly different. Not surprisingly, this one matches the Sudoku game found in the Puzzle Pack 1 also made by Oak Systems Leisure Software.
The navigation is well done. You can use the top row of letters as keys (Q=1, W=2, etc), or navigate using the 5-Way controller using the grid at the bottom right by using the Select key to move between the puzzle grid and the choice grid (see the screenshot).
Pressing the Menu key shows the many options available
The Menu key controls the many options in the game such as hiding the timer, selecting Undo, highlighting mistakes, “pencil marks”, clear all, show solution, and pause the timer. Although there are many possible puzzles, each one comes with a code on the bottom that you can share with others so they can play the same game. A thoughtful touch.
We’re not expert enough in Sudoku to judge the appropriateness of the 5 difficulty levels, but when combined with the grid sizes available of 4×4, 6×6, 8×8 and 9×9 and the millions of combinations, this is certain to satisfy most Sudoku players!
