Kindle Fire Free App of the Day: Summer Sudoku

Today's Free App of the Day is Summer Sudoku
Originally $0.99


24/7, well known for their season versions of Mahjong and solitaire, has moved to Sudoku. I played some at easy mode. There are no settings, you play it as it is. I like that when you tap on an existing number in the grid, it highlights all versions of that number. You can tap on a little pencil icon to mark the grid. If you are going to have to put the game down, be sure to hit the red and white "pause" button in the upper right hand corner before exiting the app or putting it down. This saves your mark ups and current position. If you hit the red and white "back" button in the upper left hand corner, you'll exit the game and lose all progress and mark ups. If you complete a row or find all nine instances of a number, the numbers do a little spin in place to celebrate. I like that too. In easy mode, at least, you can't put in a wrong number, but trying a number that isn't right will add 15 seconds to your time. Yes, it is timed. You get stars based on your final time. Graphics are clean and bright and I like the little dancing numbers effect. I had no problems with crashing on my Fire HD8.9. Some of the bad reviews are for the inability to save position and for it crashing. I think the game gets a bad rap. I'd give this four stars.

5 of 10 reviews are four stars and above.

These apps are compatible with the original Fire and with my Fire HD 8.9" 4G. To tell if an app works for your Fire HD or other Android device registered to your Amazon account, click on the above link and look on the right side of the web page. Amazon will tell you if it will work with your registered device.

Have fun!
