I really like this game, like it's simplicity and the way it feels. But how could this simple game (that all it does is just wait until user insert a number) consume this much hardware resources? 50% CONSTANT USE OF CPU? REALLY? My phone hardware is under pressure like it's running asphalt 8! My phone is heating after 2 minutes and the battery is less by 15% after each game :( I rather make my own Sudoku game than using this one.

Obnoxious features

Overkill. The animations are slow and nauseating. Especially the stupid highlight of the row and column when I select a square. I can't play the game because of that. The row/col highlighting should have disable option. Screen-dimming should also be disabled. I tried using the app again, but it's just too obnoxious.

I got an invalid puzzle and took a picture of it to prove it. There is no excuse for that. It is no wonder I would fail out frequently when playing gamble mode. Advanced and expert puzzles require guessing and use of tokens to avoid guessing. Ads cause screen to shift. Default to pen on resume causes immediate loss when forgetting to switch to pencil.

Closes when trying to play

I would like this to work but when I select a game it just plain old crashes.

Well if you like traditional Sudoku I don't believe you will like this version. Earning tokens is a drag and distracts from traditional game play. Difficulty levels are not appropriate. It seems as though you need to spend the in game tokens of help to solve most of the advanced puzzles. I can solve expert level puzzles on the desktop version yet I end up forcing chains on advanced levels on this app. Something isn't right with me or the game. You decide. Not worth frustration and time.

Used to love it, but now the ads have become so annoying. It used to have a static ad, which was fine, but now there constantly changing ads of differing colors, which is too distracting for a brain game.

I got a Sudoku only solvable by guessing on "Advanced" level. This is not ok. I checked the puzzle with an algorithm that confirmed that it was nit solvable by the rules of Sudoku and only by guess-substitution. This was not even Expert level! I call serious **. I wasted so much time on that puzzle. There should be an option to turn off puzzles only solvable by guessing. Also, they should not be less than Expert. Other than that, its just Sudoku. Nothing special. I also do not like the way penciling in is handled, and you should be able to undo a move. Especially if guess work is required!!!!!!!!

I have been playing a long time and love the pencil all power up. However I may have run out of puzzles. I used to always play advanced, then it got were it would never finish loading an advanced puzzle. So I started playing mainly expert and it may be doing the same thing there.

I love this game, but I found a bug. After I have put notes all over the board then putting a known number in will wipe out the notes of the same number in the row, column, and block. But if I put in a known number and immediately lock the screen before the notes are wiped then the notes are never wiped. This can get confusing, especially when I am playing a game with a lot of interruptions around me. Thanks for the great game. :)

Classic Sudoku with a gamerscore. It does feature powerups that make the puzzles easier to solve, but not much else can be said about it.
