A Look Into Sudoku & Wordsmith
8:17 AM | Anthony Wang | Comment on this story

Mac Observer has posted reviews of Sudoku and Wordsmith, both Dracosoft titles for Mac OS X. In Sudoku, gamers are challenged to solve one of thousands of puzzles available in classic, random, or chaos modes. Wordsmith is similar to the popular boardgame Scrabble by the more words you can make from the letter tiles, the more points you'll receive.

So, after playing these two games from Dracosoft did I get a mental workout? Only in wondering why the developers decided to release two potentially stellar games too soon; the games feel unfinished, lacking polish, and have only the least amount of refinement. Dracosoft's Sudoku is usable as it is, but sorely needs some of the most basic features other computer based Sudoku games offer. Wordsmith is the lesser of the two though it could be as much fun as pricier word games if it just had a decent dictionary. And both games really could use more instructions.
