Social Sudoku Launched for iPhone, iPad: Play Sudoku Head-to-Head!

I didn’t really have a liking for Sudoku but the idea of having TWO players playing on the same Sudoku puzzle board sound really interesting. The guys at Cluemaster Ltd delivers exactly that, with Social Sudoku, a live arcade version of the game for the iPhone, iPod touch and iPad. The game allows players to play against each other via Game Center, and players who input the wrong number on the board will be placed in a sin bin for 10 seconds. Check out the press release below for more details:

Cluemaster Changes the Way Sudoku is Played Using Apple iOS Game Center

United Kingdom – It is one of the most popular games of all time, found in books, newspapers, and airline magazines around the world. There are versions online, on consol gaming platforms, and on mobile phones. It is Sudoku  the 9 x 9 numerical grid puzzle that has intrigued gamers of all ages. Since its origin, a number of variations have sprung up including Kakuro, Killer Sudoku, Jigsaw Sudoku, Sudoku X and more, however one thing has remained the same  Sudoku has always been a one person game, until now.

The Sudoku masters at Cluemaster Ltd, the minds behind some of the most played puzzles in the world including the LA Times, the Chicago Tribute, and the Daily Telegraph have created the first live arcade version of the game, Social Sudoku, and released it to the iPhone, iPad and iPod Touch.

While others have tried to create multi-player versions of Sudoku, timing two players to see who could complete the same puzzle in the shortest amount of time, there has never been a way for multiple players to interact on the same puzzle board. Through the use of Apples iOS gaming system, Game Center, Social Sudoku does just that  allowing two people access to the same board at the same time, awarding points to each player as they plot numbers into the grid.

Logic is still the key factor, as players who input the wrong answers get locked into the sin bin for 10 seconds while the other player continues to get points and place numbers. The game continues until the board is complete, and players scores are tracked on a global ranking system. The multi-player format can be played not only on the traditional Sudoku board, but on six different Sudoku variations as well. For those who want to practice, or simply enjoy the traditional one player version, the games practice mode includes the traditional single player games.

Social Sudoku 1.0 is $3.99 USD (or equivalent amount in other currencies) and available worldwide exclusively through the App Store in the Games category:
