A version of Astraware Sudoku has been released for BlackBerry smartphones.
The game lets players download a puzzle for each difficulty level from the Sudoku of the Day webserver each day, and on completion submit their time to see how they compare to other players worldwide. In addition, players can enter their own puzzles from magazines and newspapers.
Astraware Sudoku includes a wide range of assistance, including a Sudoku solver, manual and automatic pencilmarks, a smart hints system to give players helpful guidance without just showing the solution, and hold-and-highlight for locating particular numbers or groups.
This game’s regular price is $9.95, but it’s available at a special introductory price of $4.95 for a limited time from Astraware.
Palm OS and Windows Mobile Versions, Too
There are already versions of Astraware Sudoku for OS and Windows Mobile smartphones, and these have been updated with enhanced graphics, and changes to the existing game engine to improve calculations and hints for some of the more difficult puzzles.
Astraware has permanently dropped the price of these versions of Sudoku to $9.95, and for a limited time these versions are also $4.95.
