Summary: This is a great game. If you like sudoku, you'll enjoy this. It was a little tricky at first getting used to using pictures instead of numbers, but once you get familiar with it, it's hard to stoop playing. You can play norml sudoku or zendoku, or you can challenge the game and play in ever-increasing difficulty levels on a quest differing by character.
Summary: Sudoku, the puzzle game of numbers, has been done so many times in so many variations, and there are only so many ways you can spoil a game with its variations. A logic puzzle, Sudoku can be solved through sheer doggedness - going through thr digits one to nine until something seemingly fits.
Summary: Always had a passion for martial arts and sudoku? Always wanted a game that combines the two? Well, probably not- but this is actually quite fun. Play sudoku puzzles as a variety of characters from Ninjas to Sumo Wrestlers against a computer generated opponent in 'Battle Mode'. The added twist here is that any wrong moves lead to you being 'attacked' which you then have to fend off.
Summary: I was so happy when I found this game because I like sudoku and this is the first I have seen to provide an original and really fun version of the puzzle. It did not disappoint. The game includes a number of different modes and quests which start off easy but get up to nigh impossible! Really enjoyable and a must for any sudoku lovers!
Summary: I bought this game as i thought the idea of doing sudokus as part of a game sounded like fun, rather than just doing them for the sake of it as with other sudoku games. At first you start off battling against easy characters. As you complete a line or square, you send an attack to your enemy, such as blowing out candles, or hitting blocks. When your enemy completes a line or a square, you get an attack to block.
Summary: After being able to count the amount of Sudoku games on two hands, I'm now running out of fingers - how many versions of the newspaper puzzle game do we really need, anyway? This latest take is, at the very least, unique, featuring a multiplayer competition focus on top of the established grid gameplay. This focus definitely separates Zendoku from the umpteen other Sudoku games, but you know what? It doesn't really make it all that much fun of an experience.

Summary: I bought this game because I love sudoku, and it looked a bit different. There are two bits to the game, regular sudoku with numbers, and the better part of the game, where you choose a character from about 12, and they fight their way through the other characters by playing sudoku. The difference is that there are pictures, instead of numbers. This does make it a bit harder to start with, because you aren't used to it, but soon becomes second nature.
Conclusion: Divided in to two Options - the main game, the actual adventure named Zendoku, and the Classic Sudoku. I prefer the latter. Not keen on the different symbols in place of traditional numbers because you don't get a lot of time to mull things over before it interrupts the game, and you lose the thread. The Classic Sudoku part however is brilliant - a different colour is alloted to the nine different numbers, and there are five degrees of difficulty.
