A fresh take on the classic
Microsoft brings to life a new version of Sudoku. The company does a great job of improving the game so that it isn’t a copy of the other versions available. This 9x9 tile puzzle is improved upon in this edition.
Give me more numbers!
Microsoft takes a step into designing their version of the explosively popular puzzle game.
Sudoku has no shortage of popular variations like the Peoplefun’s application. However, while that one sticks to a simple design, Microsoft takes the game in a different direction by adding in the irregular play mode.
They also include in daily challenges that keep your wits engaged with the application. Brainium Studio’s Sudoku lacks this element but makes up for its superior game AI and puzzle maker.
This app suffers from a weak user interface; it’s not as intuitive as it could be. Peoplefun’s program, in comparison, has an elegant, easy-to-use design.
Where can you run this program?
It is available on iOS 11.0 and later on all Apple devices.
Is there a better alternative?
No. While there are good options out there like Brainium or PF’s Sudoku, they do not have the variety this Microsoft-designed program provides. However, if you are looking for simplicity, the alternatives mentioned are better choices.
The software is a promising one. Despite the problems that it faces from bugs, it is good to see some new life breathed into Sudoku with the additions added.
Should you download it?
Yes, if you enjoy puzzle games, this is something you want to have on your phone.
