Zendoku

Digital Chumps
18 March 2008
  • Conclusion: Ultimately Zendoku is going to turn any non-Sudoku player into one, so it will really only appeal to Sudoku players, who already have a lot of DS games to choose from and may or may not be interested in the battle system in Zendoku.

Puzzle Meets Pummeling

  • Excerpt: I was never really into crossword puzzles or the word scramble, but when Sudoku started showing up in newspapers I was game. They’re addicting and give you some false sense that you’re doing some sort of math since you’re using numbers.

  • Excerpt: Zendoku is a fun, fast-paced way to fill your craving for more Sudoku puzzles. By pitting you against an opponent (AI or multiplayer), the game provides an interesting twist on the standard Sudoku play, with interspersed mini-games in addition to a timer turning it into more of an action-puzzler...

  • Summary: Strange goofiness abounds in Eidos' new fusion of Anime and Sudoku.
  • Pros: Colourful graphics that are as appealing as Sudoku graphics can get; a goofy sense of humor that never forgets to revel in its own cheesiness; touch screen controls are functional and easy to use; lots of characters to unlock and play as; a great game of Sudoku for veterans and newbs alike.
  • Cons: If you don't like Sudoku, this won't change your mind; the anime motif may not appeal to everyone; using symbols instead of numbers in the quest mode may be confusing for some; CPU attacks in quest mode can get annoying; if you're like me, you'll end up with bite marks on your stylus from thinkin...

Zendoku Review

Eurogamer
27 April 2007
  • Conclusion: Nevertheless, with a whole orthodox Sudoku mode as well as the main head-to-head Zendoku attraction, this is a generous package that injects some freshness and urgency into an otherwise stale puzzle game that's already adequately represented on the DS.

  • Summary: Het puzzelspel Sudoku heeft zich inmiddels volledig in onze samenleving weten te integreren. Iedereen heeft het wel eens gespeeld. De een vindt het saai, de ander speelt het dagelijks. Persoonlijk ben ik niet zo heel erg gecharmeerd van het spel.
  • Pros: Gemakkelijke gameplay, Snelle laadtijden, Leuke stijl
  • Cons: Gebruik van figuren, Matige minigames, Enkel voor fans van Sudoku

  • Excerpt: Zendoku n'est certes pas le premier titre de sudoku à voir le jour sur console portable, mais il est bien le seul à sortir du lot en combinant originalité et efficacité. Sa grande force vient du fait qu'il s'agit en réalité d'un puzzle-game conçu essentiellement pour les affrontements en versus, et...
