    The missus likes this, I fount it a tad fiddly in parts.

    Mobile version wasn't too bad though, I hope Gameloft bring some of their other titles like Midnight Pool to the DS.

    The interface on this game is almost as good as the one in Brain Age. It's easy to use and the handwriting recognition actually works, unlike every other sudoku title out there. My only gripe is that the "easy" puzzles are not as easy as I'd like. I'm a weenie. [​IMG] Although the clue system is very nice, I'd rather not have to resort to using it.

    To top it off, it has a ton of unlockable skins, BGM tunes, and minigames. This is easily the best sudoku game out there besides Brain Age.

    Oh, and the female in-game coach is also kind of hot. [​IMG]

    Finally a full sudoku game that compares to Brain Age's? And Kakuro to boot?! Can't wait to try it.

    Edit: Tried it. It gets a thumbs up.

    I agree this is the best sudoku game out there. Regarding handwriting recognition the probably is the Japanese write 4's and 5's different.

    Let's see if I can say it correctly. They draw a five by going down, then half circle and THEN draw the top straight from left to right across. We (normal people) draw top straight from right to left then go down and then half circle down.

    For the 4's we draw in one stroke top left down then across then up then down.
    Japanese draw 4's in two strokes top left down then lift up the pen then draw down the middle (not the edge).

    Anyway my point is the handwriting recognition is for Japanese and the titles get their text translated but not the handwriting recognition doesn't get changed for the Western Hemisphere.

    Really? I'm in the U.S. and I was taught to write 5's in the manner that you say Japanese people are taught. In fact, I initially had a difficult time successfully writing 5's in Brain Age until I switched over to drawing them in the way that you describe as your normal way.

    Wait a minute the ROM is 8MB unzipped, doesn't that mean the ROM size is 64Mbit?
