Word Sudoku by POWGI
Developer: Lightwood Games
Overall, I would definitely recommend this game for any Sudoku player out there that has a PS4 or iPad/iPhone as you won’t be disappointed in the least bit and it’s a great way to pass the time or take a break from the bigger AAA games you have been playing.
Word Sudoku By POWGI is yet another great puzzle game from Lightwood Games which will have you scratching your head. Not only do you get 240 puzzles which can be played as standard numerical Sudoku puzzles, but you can also play them all as 9-letter words instead. Each puzzle should take you around 10-20 minutes to complete, so you’re looking at many, many hours of entertainment for one low price. As you get the same puzzles on the PS Vita for free as part of the Cross-buy program, why not do all 240 puzzles as words on your PS4 and numbers on the Vita – that way it feels like you have two completely different games (this is what I’ll be doing).
While it works and is the only game in town of its type in the eShop I still would consider the Sudoku included with Brain Age back on the DS to be my personal gold standard in terms of functionality and feel. Additionally while 240 puzzles is certainly a fair amounts of puzzles again for real Sudoku fans that may not amount to much if the simpler challenge levels aren’t very rewarding. It’s a solid Sudoku experience but it’s all relatively simple as well.
