    Hi folks, I'm here to release my first Vita homebrew, let's say my first game/app in general.

    Hendoku 0.1 - A Sudoku for PS Vita

    It's pretty raw for now but I like messing with the vita so I'll improve it.
    If someone can help me getting a better grid generation process, I'm listening :) .

    I forgot to change the name before packing it all so the bubble will be called sudokucpp for now. It will be fixed in the next release.

    Controls:

    Menu: DPAD and cross.
    Game: DPAD and triggers, SELECT for menu, START exit (to be removed).

    Here is the readme:

    Is it based on a algorithm with uniqe solutions or are there multiple solutions per Soduko?

    In fact the game doesn't check the number of solution. It just make a full grid then dig a number of holes depending on the difficulty chosen.

    I'll probably take a look at how Rinnegatamante did it.

    You mean the game?
    No it isn't, you have to fill the blank squares with the digits 1 to 9.
    In every square comes one digit. In each row, each coloumn and each of these marked 3x3 squares should have every digit only one time.
    If every square is filled with digits to this rules you won.
    It's surprisingly fun as you have to develope strategies how to find these missing numbers.
    You should think about what could come in one of these squares and eliminate what can't come in there.

    For example in the first 3x3 square in the screenshot from the first post 1, 4, 6, 7 are missing.
    The gap between the 2 and the 3 can contain all of these numbers, but the column used 4, 6 and 7 already therefore the number you have to fill in the gap is 1.

    Its a game of deduction and became around 2004/2005 really popular in alot of countries.
    It was so loved that almost every newspaper with a games section featured them back then and showed a wider audience that numbers and deduction could be fun.
    You should try it :)

    Hey Kuni, I just wanted to say thanks for the homebrew! I'm currently working on a tile-based 2d vita homebrew game and I took ideas from your source code as a framework for my c++ class structure.
