The puzzles are awesome, I like the new dimension the system adds. And I like it a lot that even the easier puzzles are something you need to actually engange your brain for, so you won't get bored before unlocking the more difficult ones. However I too would prefer the numbers to be in a 3x3 pad instead of a row with tiny buttons, and then the tools could go in a 3x3 pad besides that. If that could be added this app will immediately deserve a 5th star!

Love the game. The interface is quite similar to their earlier games. I like it that every puzzle is hand designed and the hints are just brilliant. Most computer generated sudoku would give hints as a number on the grid (which is simply terrible because you really dont learn anything from it) but this game, in line with their earlier games, give hints that make you think about certain parts of the grid and derive the solution path yourself. Just excellent!

Waited until I got through all the puzzles before writing this. The knight varient is a real brain teaser, needing to think in ways you don't normally do in order to get those tricky insights to clear them. The kings varient felt more like a slow march to completion. The only times I got stuck there was when I discarded an option in my mind but kept the notation.

After watching dozens of CrackingTheCryptic videos I got the Classic Sudoku app and have really been enjoy it. I was excited for this variant (three really!) because of the extra spacial aspect to it and let me say I haven't been disappointed! The puzzles are really a joy to solve and I find them to be a bit easier than the Classic puzzles which really helps my ego 😂

Chess Sudoku Description

Presented by Cracking The Cryptic, YouTube’s most popular Sudoku channel, comes a new game that connects two of the world’s biggest mind games: Chess and Sudoku!

How does Chess Sudoku work? Well we’ve taken the classic sudoku game everyone knows and loves and created puzzles with chess-related twists! There are three different types of puzzles in the game: Knight Sudoku; King Sudoku and Queen Sudoku (coming after launch as a free update!).

In Knight Sudoku, in addition to the normal rules of sudoku (no repeated digit in a row/column/3x3 box) a digit must not appear a chess knight’s move away from itself. This simple extra restriction introduces lots of clever additional logic that makes the puzzle even more interesting!

King Sudoku and Queen Sudoku work the same way: ie it’s always normal sudoku but, in King Sudoku a digit must not be a single diagonal move away from itself; and, in Queen Sudoku, every 9 in the grid acts like a chess Queen and must not be in the same row/column/3x3 box OR diagonal of any other 9!

As with their other games (‘Classic Sudoku’ and ‘Sandwich Sudoku’), Simon Anthony and Mark Goodliffe (the hosts of Cracking The Cryptic) have personally crafted the hints for the puzzles. So you know that every puzzle has been play-tested by a human being to ensure that the sudoku is interesting and fun to solve.

In Cracking The Cryptic’s games, players start with zero stars and earn stars by solving puzzles. The more puzzles you solve, the more stars you earn and the more puzzles you get to play. Only the most dedicated (and cleverest) sudoku players will finish all the puzzles. Of course the difficulty is carefully calibrated to ensure lots of puzzles at every level (from easy through to extreme). Anyone familiar with their YouTube channel will know that Simon and Mark take pride in teaching to be better solvers and, with their games, they always craft the puzzles with the mindset of trying to help solvers improve their skills.

Mark and Simon have both represented the UK many times at the World Sudoku Championship and you can find more of their puzzles (and lots of others) on the internet’s biggest sudoku channel Cracking The Cryptic.
