With all of the entertaining games being released for BlackBerry 10, it's always enjoyable to get back to basics. One of my favorite number puzzles happens to be Sudoku. It requires skill, patience, and is not a bad way to spend a few moments of your busy schedule with. While there are certainly no shortage of Sudoku apps in the storefront, Magmic has certainly designed one with a pleasant experience in mind. It also doesn't hurt that it comes with hundreds of puzzles of varying degrees of difficulty to give your mind a workout.
As I'm sure most of you are familiar with the popular Japanese logic puzzle game, the objective is to fill a 9x9 grid so that each of the 3x3 sub-grids contain all of the numbers from 1-9 where no digit can be repeated across any of the rows or columns. That being said, this version delivers a clean interface with easy on the eyes pastel colors aimed at helping users relax and focus on sharpening their puzzle solving skills.
There are three levels of difficulty (Easy, medium, and hard) and while only one grid appears at a time, a simple swipe to the left or right advances to the next desired puzzle. It also provides Twitter integration, option to switch between a light or dark theme, and a convenient pencil mode for planning your next strategic move.
The only thing you should be aware of is that numbers are chosen by tapping on them from the bottom dock as it does not employ the BlackBerry keyboard to input them. For a free application with no ads you certainly can't go wrong with trying this out. You can grab this at the link for the BlackBerry Q10, Z10 and Z30.
