ABC Sudoku


Sudoku ABC by Peter Grabarchuk

3 stars

This Sudoku collection is 26 puzzles shaped as letters in the alphabet with the normal rules of Sudoku but the numbers range from 1-6. You can not have the same number twice in any row going up and down or across.

This is not an interactive book. You can look at the puzzle and jump to the Hints and Solutions pages but you will not be able to fill in the puzzle like other Kindle puzzle books from Peter Grabarchuk. But if you have an iPhone, iPad, or iPod touch you can tap a link where you can fully interact with the puzzle with the Puzzlium app.

I admit that I am not very good at Sudoku puzzles to begin with. So these were a challenge for me. Then I have an Android tablet and phone so I was not able to fully interact with the puzzle. This was a little bothersome. But for the puzzles, they are the usual high quality that you have come to expect from Peter Grabarchuk.

If you like Sudoku puzzles, I think that if you had an Apple device these puzzles would be great for you. Unfortunately, for those of us that don’t you will have to copy them down to work with them. If they were made where we could interact I think you would reach a broader audience.

I received this book for free in exchange for an honest review.
