Pure Sudoku – Achieve a Zen-like oneness with your computer.

Apr02b First I have to say, I HATE SUDOKU!  And why, I hear you cry.  Because you could almost have it beat and then realize that you have a duplicate number somewhere and it all completely unravels.  Okay I hope this little outburst doesn’t have any bearing on the review.  In fact Pure Sudoku is perfect, even though I’m angry at the game, I’m not angry at the program.  Pure Sudoku is pretty nice, of course it is just a game of Sudoku.  However the visuals are decent.  And it is easy to play.

Okay according to Wikipedia Sudoku is a logic-based combinatorial number-placement puzzle.  Number puzzles similar to this were available in 19th century newspapers.  Eventually it got transformed into what it was today.  It was introduced in Japan in ‘84 which gave it its Japanese sounding name Sudoku.  If you really want a history I suggest you read the Wikipedia entry on it, and then search through the net, and maybe your local Library.
