UniSudoku 1.7 Released
6:00 AM | Cord Kruse | Comment on this story

UniSudoku 1.7, a puzzle game for OS X, is now available for download. The changes include a new statistics sidebar, checkboxes for each number completed in a puzzle, number tracking, and improved puzzle difficulty consistency.

Among the changes is a new statistics sidebar that lets you compare your current time with the best and average times for the current level of difficulty. Also there are checkboxes for each number you have completed in the puzzle. Click the checkbox to quickly highlight all instances of that number in the puzzle. Track the number of given, completed, and remaining squares in the puzzles. And finally there is some improved consistency with the puzzle difficulties. The Hard and Very Hard levels are a bit more difficult as a result.

Sudoku has been gaining immense popularity in the last couple of years due to its addictive nature and the unique satisfaction achieved when playing and solving the puzzles. As a traditional pencil and paper puzzle the challenge in bringing it to the Mac is to keep the flow and simplicity of the pencil and paper version while adding benefits of computer play such as unlimited puzzle generation, ease of Undo/Redo, neatness of computer interface versus handwriting, highlighting of digits, rotating board, timing game, and when desired providing help with the game such as marking incorrect answers and automatically updating possibles for empty squares. UniSudoku has enjoyed popularity so far due to its balanced implementation of the above concerns.

The full version of UniSudoku costs $15 and requires OS X 10.3.9 or higher. Follow the links below to download the latest version and learn more about the game.
