While I do love me some Sudoku, this game is nothing more than that. I don't feel that the idea for Sudoku fits in with the theme all that well, you could have made a more interesting game that only has one solution.

There's not much to say about gameplay. It's just a normal sudoku puzzle, no rules altered.

The graphics were a bit confusing. There was no lighter-weight lines for the inner 3-by-3 grids so it was difficult to keep track of them. The numbers weren't designed very well either. After staring at them for a while I began to mix up the numbers.

I'm guessing you couldn't come up with a good idea, but I feel that any idea would be better than using an already existing game. Keep on trying; hopefully you'll be able to come up with something next time.

Not only does this game not fit the theme, it's also an implementation of an existing game *and* it doesn't even check to see if you've won or not. (I beat the game and nothing happened.) Also it's the same puzzle every time. What gives?

None of the text lines up properly in the squares for me (web player, mac), which makes it a bit harder. Also seems like the same puzzle every time. Need to see a lot more I think...

Like everyone said, an existing game without any strong connection with the theme and no modification... I did also beat it and nothing happened, just like chardish

IMPORTANT NOTE: If you want to place in the final results, you NEED votes. The easiest way to get votes is by rating other games. Judging lasts for 3 weeks following the end of Ludum Dare. For best effect, rate 20 games as soon as possible. Rating more games is encouraged.


TEAMS: Teams entering the Jam should pick a single representative to submit your game, or create a team specific account you can share. We currently do not support Team Voting, but sharing an account and together playing and rating games is acceptable.

NOT LOGGED IN?: If you get a message about not being logged in, even though you are, it’s because your web browser cached the non-logged in page. You can fix this by either refreshing your cache or clearing your cache. CTRL+F5 in many browsers. Chrome is a bit more work. Press F12 to enable Developer Mode, then you can right click on the refresh button and select “Empty Cache and Hard Reload”. This option is unavailable if you are not in Developer Mode.

PORTS: Ports to other platforms can be done after the deadline. That said, the sooner you finish your port, the sooner people can play your game, improving your chances of placing in the final results. For best results, provide a Web version of your game, or a Windows version with no dependencies. Also be sure to rate about 20 games to improve your visibility.

MY GAME DOESN’T SHOW UP: If you can’t find your game, it’s usually because the URL to your downloads are missing ‘http://‘. Fix your URLs ( and you will show up.

MY GAME CRASHES, IS UNBEATABLE, OR I MADE A TYPO: We allow you to fix crash or win condition bugs after the deadline (in a sense, like “porting” to support more players). We also allow “typo” bugs. I.e. A true that should have been a false, a word that should have been a different word, very tiny changes that you would have caught if you had more sleep. We leave this open to interpretation, but generally speaking your game should be identical to the game you submitted. No new features, just things you messed up last minute. Typos.
