"Fine Sudoku player"

February 02, 2012  |  By rblevow

 |  Version: Simple Sudoku 4.1z

Pros

Simple Sudoku has the nicest interface of any of the Sudoku players I have seen. It is easy to use, either with automatically generated games of several levels of difficulty, library games, or your own entry of games from any source. It provides a number of useful aids for revealing patterns that can be helpful in solving a puzzle, all user selectable as you prefer

Cons

It appears that the program is no longer being maintained or developed. In one respect this is okay as it seems to run without defect. On the other hand there are a couple of annoyances. First is that the highlighting of candidate cells by darker or lighter boundaries provides insufficient differentiation and can be difficult to clearly distinguish. While many display characteristics can be set by the user, this one can't. Second is that there are only 4 colors available for cell coloring. On occasion 5 or more are needed to unambiguously color the grid for candidate tracking. However, neither item is a show stopper as there are work-arounds.

Summary

Best of many Sudoku programs in spite of its age.

 |  Version: Simple Sudoku 4.1z

Pros

I've learnt a lot about solving soduku from this program

Cons

the hints can sometimes be vague without actually telling one the reason why you would exclude a number

Summary

It gives one a far better alternative to Freecell
