    Good God, this SCREAMS shovelware. Looks like someone just took Professor Layton and smashed in some sudoku puzzles to go with it.

    I love Sudoku and I was so sick of "traditional" sudoku.

    I think it's very nice to see that game developers are actually trying out new things instead of releasing 1024th traditional Sudoku game on DS.

    The "ball" is actually a bit disappointing. I was expecting a 15x15 size sudoku or even bigger wrapped around in a ball shape.

    The detective part is a bit disturbing and totally unnecessary but I'm gonna play ball anyway.

    keeping it simples silly (KISS) applies to this game
    sudoku became very famous in the last few years atleast here

    I empathize. Have no idea about the DSi parts but the other parts were reasonable. (If they really released the games earlier and got them marked as dupes.)

    As for a bad dump, I'm not sure what the EXACT definition is. "Bad" as in not runnable? "Bad" as in not a 100% clone of the original?
    For DS the latter is okay but for other systems like 360, corrupted dummy data could lead to bannage so in this case I think the nukers were semi-just.

    The game's not too bad. But the ball feature doesn't make the puzzles any more unique than traditional sudoku.

    Also the story mode is set to wayyy too easy.
