What Is It?

An interactive multi-player and multi-level super fast strategy sudoku game that’s available for both iPad and Android tablets.

Is It Easy To Use?

Yes, certainly if you’re used to the concept of Sudoku then it won’t be a problem at all. The main experience of this game is focused on online play and very fast at that.

Is It Fun?

As this is a Sudoku game then the target market is quite clear, if you’re not interested in strategy number games then you wouldn’t pick it up in the first instance. So, we’re betting on you being keen Sudoku players in the first instant. We put this game against some of the competition and there are plenty of Sudoku games out there to challenge you in both the Apple App Store and Google Play.

We really liked this game in particular because although the principal is the same, this game does have a few clever elements up its sleeve. Namely, on the online play and the speed element. These two elements combined have in essence created a game based on the traditional art of Sudoku but in turn created something altogether different, with different rules and strategies from the norm and that’s what makes this game so much fun. It is Sudoku with a twist and we think you’re going to have a lot more fun than you might of experienced in this type of game previously.

Usually when you play Sudoku you need to fill out the entire grid, in SudokuPDQ a game consists of five rounds, consisting of five brand new puzzles. Each player has to fill in just one cell correctly and then hit ‘DONE’ to stop the clock. You only get 20 seconds to answer the question per round. It’s possible to achieve a bonus of 10 points for giving the correct answer in all five rounds

Is It Pretty?

Yes, in a casino kind of way, it’s a very relaxing online environment, to look at at least.

Should You Download It?

Absolutely, if you’re a fan of Sudoku but want to try something different, then this game is for you. It will challenge you in similar ways to the traditional form but also add in another element that will excite you and take you back to it time after time.

Not only that, this game is free for both the Android tablet and iPad formats, so you really have no reason not too. We would suggest you download this game and give it a whirl, we think you’ll be very pleased that you did.
