***** MARCH UPDATE ***** 20 new puzzles, 80 puzzles total! ------------------------------------- Presented by Cracking The Cryptic, YouTube’s most popular Sudoku channel, comes a new game featuring one of the most popular puzzle types: Thermo Sudoku. How does Thermo Sudoku work? Well each sudoku grid contains thermometer shapes (often drawn to create themes) and digits on thermometers must increase as one moves further from the bulb end. The interactions between the thermometers leads to new logical ideas and patterns that completely refreshes the standard sudoku solving experience. As with their other games (‘Classic Sudoku’, ‘Sandwich Sudoku’ and ‘Chess Sudoku’), Simon Anthony and Mark Goodliffe (the hosts of Cracking The Cryptic) have personally crafted the hints for the puzzles. So you know that every puzzle has been play-tested by a human being to ensure that the sudoku is interesting and fun to solve. In Cracking The Cryptic’s games, players start with zero stars and earn stars by solving puzzles. The more puzzles you solve, the more stars you earn and the more puzzles you get to play. Only the most dedicated (and cleverest) sudoku players will finish all the puzzles. Of course the difficulty is carefully calibrated to ensure lots of puzzles at every level (from easy through to extreme). Anyone familiar with their YouTube channel will know that Simon and Mark take pride in teaching viewers to be better solvers and, in these games, they always craft the puzzles with the mindset of trying to help solvers improve their skills. Mark and Simon have both represented the UK many times at the World Sudoku Championship and you can find more of their puzzles (and lots of others) on the internet’s biggest sudoku channel Cracking The Cryptic. Features: 40 beautiful puzzles on launch 100 puzzles in all with regular updates to reach this total in the first year post launch. Hints crafted by Simon and Mark!
The UX for this app is just amazing. I'm not sure that there is a better implementation of a sudoku board in any app of website. It's so intuitive and great. The devs should put the same functionality into the Website!
I’m really impressed by this app. More difficult puzzles are unlocked by beating easier ones (which I guess could be frustrating if you’re really good, but I’m not! So it’s fine). The app will alert you of illegal placements, so you don’t waste too much time, and you have real variety in how you can mark each square - not only with pencil marks of possible numbers, but with a different style pencil mark for set pairs and triplets but also with x’s for focusing on single digits (and where they can’t be placed) and highlighter colors to identify key squares. Really nice!
Not your normal sudoku here, this one turns up the heat with thermometer logic. Excellent hand crafted puzzles and an easy to use and aesthetically pleasing interface!
Paying the premium for these high quality puzzles was totally worth it. Looks great, plays great, performs great, and the functionality of the puzzles and notation is superb!
