Editors' Review

+
If you've got Sudoku fever, a freeware Pocket PC version of the grid-based logic game probably sounds like the greatest thing since, well, Pocket PCs. Unfortunately, SuDoku for Pocket PC disappointed us on most counts. It has a primitive interface and a critically poor set of features, which even its tiny size can't justify. It comes with only six predefined puzzles and doesn't allow you to generate new games automatically. The publisher suggests downloading new puzzles via the Internet, but we found no more than 25 online. You can't mark digits with colors or input them directly. To enter 9, for example, you have to click the cell nine times. Installing the game requires unzipping the downloaded package and manually copying the extracted CAB file via ActiveSync, though the rest of the setup process proceeded quickly and successfully. To be fair, SuDoku for Pocket PC works fine, without glitches or crashes. If you can get new puzzles from other sources and don't mind the cheesy interface, it's a decent stopgap until a better title comes along.

"Great basic SuDoku for free!"

March 06, 2009  |  By didjit

 |  Version: SuDoku for Pocket PC 1

Pros

Variety of levels. Simple UI that supports "penciling-in" answers. Tips and error checking are a bonus. No need to download additional puzzles. Did I mention it's free?!

Cons

A little plain in the UI department.

Summary

Kept me busy for many an hour on the subway. And ultimately, it's the same gameplay as the $15 and $20 versions -- but for free! ... of course a donation would be appropriate if you really find it valuable...

UPDATE: Forgive me. I'm a moron. I thought I was reviewing this other one: http://freewareppc.com/games/superdoku.shtml (SuperDoku by Mike Miller).

This one was... let's see... as I recall, it was bland. The preloaded puzzles were fine but having to download more made it a no-go for me.

"Solid piece of software."

March 01, 2006  |  By twitch2021

 |  Version: SuDoku for Pocket PC 1

Pros

For someone who's new to Sudoku the 6 built in games were a good start and the other 21 downloadable ones will keep me going. Be sure to go [Game] [Open] [Open from Internet...] to get the other grids.

Cons

This game is a bit hefty on the memory side of things. Strongly recommend downloading the program and all the grids to a memory card. Or at least the grids (it'll save you about 2MB of internal memory).
