Countless Sudoku puzzles to choose from
Swoop Software has announced Kitty Spangles Sudoku, a new game for Mac OS X that adds a unique style to the standard Sudoku puzzle game. It features a variety of animated themes that users can switch through, four different difficulty settings to try, and an endless amount of different Sudoku puzzles. The game comes with a built-in puzzle editor which enables players to design and create their own Sudoku board, or to copy a puzzle into the game from either a newspaper, book or website.
To help users deal with the increasing difficultly levels, the game also provides a series of tools such as undo and redo functions, pencil marks, in-game instructions and a few ways to cheat. When playing through the puzzles, the game keeps track of statistics including how many games were played, how many were won, and the length of winning streaks. All scores can be compared with other players, and each puzzle can be printed off or saved as a PDF file for sharing.
Kitty Spangles Sudoku requires Mac OS X 10.4.11 or higher and can be purchased for $20. A bundle pack combining the new Sudoku game with Kitty Spangles Solitaire is also available for $35.
