Good Soduku Review

Good Soduku is the classic puzzle game but made more accessible by removing the leg work of counting and tracking which numbers have been used where.

Play involves filling a 9×9 grid with numbers while ensuring that each column, row and each of the nine 3×3 subgrids only contain one of each of the digits from 1 to 9. It sounds complicated but actually is a simple concept when you try it.

Usually you have to make notes to track which numbers might go where, and which you have used. Good Soduku helps you by tracking this for you and offering advice and suggestions when you need it. It's an approach designed to offer intelligent hints and reduce busy-work so you have more fun.

At the end of each puzzle you get a score based on the time you took, hints used and difficulty of the puzzle. The game also tracks your current streak of wins and total score.

It offers over 70,000 high-quality Soduku puzzles. Each one is grouped not only into different difficulties but enables you to select which techniques you want to be challenged on: Naked Triple, Hidden Triple, Naked Quadrupal, Y Wing and Avoidable Rectangle. You can also practice these specific techniques outside of puzzles to expand your Soduku firepower.
