An online Sudoku game is the perfect way to pass the time. It’s a great way to challenge your logical thinking. It is also a great way to exercise your brain. Here is an overview of three online Sudoku games.
Sudoku Savant is an excellent online Sudoku game. It was designed by Sapphire Software, Inc. The interface is the best I’ve ever seen for an online game or for a PC or MacIntosh version.
It will automatically pencil the candidates for you of your choice. Clicking on a candidate will alternate the candidate. Double clicking on a candidate will resolve the cell. You don’t even need to touch the keyboard.
Need a tip? The game will also give you four levels of hints. You can also click a button to resolve the suggestion for you if you’re stuck.
Sudoku Savant offers four puzzle levels per day. Easy, medium, difficult and expert. How a challenge? You will have a lot on an expert level. Expect to find difficult Sudoku puzzles featuring x-wing, swordfish and xy-wing patterns.
Another advantage you will find by playing Sudoku Savant is that this game will save your incomplete game. If, for whatever reason, you click on another page and then return to the game, the solved cells remain as you left them. Beautiful!
Ready to play Sudoku? Search Google for the term “sudoku savant” and you will find this fun online Sudoku game.
Web Sudoku is another online Sudoku game. Unlike Sudoku Savant, it doesn’t offer you the option to enter candidates automatically or manually. This is good for simple games and for experts who like to solve Sudoku the hard way.
Web Sudoku, in comparison, requires you to click on the cell you want to solve and then enter the number by typing it on the keyboard.
If you quit the puzzle and then come back, Web Sudoku doesn’t save your work. Bummer!
For those who like a variation of the traditional 9×9 Sudoku, Web Sudoku offers Squiggly Sudoku online and a link to Jig SawDoku, a 9×9 drag and drop Sudoku.w88.com
USA Today Sudoku
USA Today Sudoku is another online Sudoku game. This game will show candidates for each cell if you wish. Clicking on a single naked candidate does nothing. You have to type the number or click on the cell and drag the desired number from the list.
Another disadvantage of this online game is that you cannot manually delete candidates except by solving a cell. This is a huge drawback. The ability to remove candidates is a tool you want to help you solve Sudoku puzzles, especially difficult ones.
An online Sudoku game is the perfect way to pass the time. It’s a great way to challenge your logical thinking. But why not have fun solving Sudoku puzzles with the online game that gives you the best features. I choose Sudoku Savant. Try it out and decide for yourself which one you like best.
