A lot or a little?

The parents' guide to what's in this app.

Ease of Play

This app’s primary selling feature is its simple interface. It offers a highly intuitive "one-touch" system that makes selecting and inserting numbers in a specific cell as simple as a single swiping motion. Note, though, that some puzzles are extremely challenging. Puzzles are grouped by skill level, but even some of the “easy” grids can prove quite hard.

Violence & Scariness
Sexy Stuff

This paid version has no ads. However, players will encounter advertisements for other games in the free "lite" version of the game.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Sudoku One Touch delivers a very traditional number puzzle experience free of any controversial material. Players see number grids set atop plain bamboo backgrounds, short instructional dialogs, and nothing else. Puzzle lovers of all skill levels will likely appreciate the simple, clever interface, but those who typically find Sudoku puzzles challenging may be put off by the difficulty of all but the "breezy" level puzzles.

Is it any good?

SUDOKU ONE TOUCH doesn’t change a thing about the classic number puzzle game that millions of people know and love. It offers a nearly infinite supply of classic nine-by-nine grids sorted into five difficulty levels. It also keeps time, provides ongoing statistics, and allows players to choose whether the computer should check errors in real time.

However, it differentiates itself from the competition in one key way: Interface. Every action in the game requires just a single, simple swipe. Simply hold your finger on the cell in which you want to enter a number and swipe your finger toward the digit you wish to enter. Entering notes for potential answers requires the same movement, finishing with a downward motion. Benefits of this interface come both in speed -- it’s very quick -- and ergonomics (swiping is much less stressful on one’s hand than repetitively tapping the screen). Fans of this traditional Japanese number game will be in heaven.
