  1. It’s good, simple and highly addictive, though if you have a pen and a copy of The Times, it may be surplus to requirements.
  2. Sudoku Gridmaster is, in a way, both the best and the worst sudoku videogame on the market. It provides the best straightforward, “I just want to play” game of sudoku out there, but at the same time, it’s severely lacking in the options department.

    Yes there are lots of puzzles, and since I completed ALL the puzzles in Brain Age, I was looking for something more. This is definitely NOT Yes there are lots of puzzles, and since I completed ALL the puzzles in Brain Age, I was looking for something more. This is definitely NOT it. The interface is poor, the handwriting does not recognize certain numbers easily, it does not have a left-handed option, and since it only uses one screen, it is hard to read. The way you enter clues is terrible, and if you have entered any, when you add the actual number, it does not automatically erase the clues. I hope Brain Age brings out another extended version.

    If all you want is a solidly designed electronic Sudoku with hundreds of puzzles then Sudoku Gridmaster is the game you're looking for. If all you want is a solidly designed electronic Sudoku with hundreds of puzzles then Sudoku Gridmaster is the game you're looking for. The interface is attractively designed and intuitive, and the number entry is a snap whether you use the handwriting recognition feature or tapping your selection on a number pad (my preferred method of entry). What keeps this game in the "7" range is the lack of bells and whistles, namely, a verticle play mode would have been nice, as would the ability to enter your own puzzles, but with 400 puzzles included, the latter isn't really much of a problem. Bottom line: This is a well designed game of electronic Sudoku, but that's *all* it is; however, if that's all you want then I recommend Sudoku Gridmaster without reservation. Full Review »
