The Pocket PC Sudoku
Download Guide

If you're into Pocket PC Sudoku, it shouldn't surprise you learn of a PPC glut on the market as developers attempt to cash in on its popularity.

The objective of this popular puzzle game is to place numbers from 1 through 9 in each cell of a 9×9 grid made up of 3×3 regions.

You start with various digits given in some cells (the "givens").

Each row, column, and region must contain only one instance of each numeral.

I chose this for extensive review due to its relatively high download numbers.

The Sudoku Master trial version may convince you that bizarre, sports themed Sudoku skins can be fun.

There were a couple of misses with a colour customization glitch among other niggling issues.

Sudoku Master, however, boasts sharp-looking skins and options to satisfy the most crazed customizers in existence.

Sudoku Rules Extreme

If you're learning the ropes or a middling player hoping to break out with Extreme difficulty modes, Sudoku Rules is right up your numerological puzzle alley.

Sudoku Rules Extreme lacks the ease of use and customizability of Sudoku Master, but the plethora of hint types is unmatched amongst Pocket PC Sudoku downloads.

The Sudoku Rules Extreme trial version boasts of being the first Sudoku download to feature full, complex solutions in plain English.

My comprehensive Sudoku Rules Extreme review explores the possibilities of an expansive hint engine system.
