Sudoku Killer: free puzzle app game for iphone, ipad

Years ago I bought a puzzle magazine called Killer Sudoku. It's a combination of Sudoku & Kakuro. Each region has a little number in the top left corner. Those cells must add up to it.

Sudoku Killer is a free puzzle app game that's exactly the same. There are 10 free puzzles. After that, every set of 50 puzzles will cost $.99. Not a bad deal considering those 50 puzzles will take up a solid 5 hours.

You can buy 850 puzzles all at once for $4.99.

I've done 2 of the 'hard' levels and each took me about 20-25 minutes.  Do the math & those 850 puzzles are a bargain.

Addendum: I bought the 850 puzzles and I do these while 'watching' tv.  The easy ones take a minimum of 10 minutes.  Absolute bargain.

    I am curious if you would try it out and share on your blog?

    The basics for the game of TicToku was initially developed around 2005 by Dr. Richard Shuntich. He developed TicToku(originally called 7-to-11) primarily with the intent of teaching his grandchildren basic math and strategy skills in a competitive, quick-play game.

    Dr. Shuntich was a psychology professor at Eastern Kentucky University and had a real passion for education, kids, and challenging puzzles. He published Richard’s Riddles word puzzles for many years in his local newspaper, The Richmond (KY) Register, and he was always searching for new ways to engage, educate, and challenge people’s minds.

    Around the time of the development of TicToku, Sudoku was the Shuntich family’s game of choice. Since Sudoku doesn’t allow play against one another and some of his younger grandchildren had difficulty with Sudoku, Dr. Shuntich developed a two-player game that used similar concepts to Sudoku but could be played competitively by kids and adults alike similar to Tic Tac Toe. Within a short period of time, the game of TicToku was born. One of Dr. Shuntich’s sons, Douglas Shuntich, put together a game board with magnetic pieces for each player’s numbers. The grandchildren loved playing the game and were learning math and strategy skills at the same time.

    After Dr. Shuntich passed away in 2011, another son, Dan Shuntich, became committed to developing and launching an App for TicToku. Now in App form, the mission of TicToku remains the same as Dr. Shuntich’s original vision, to help educate and challenge minds. The App is free to download, profits earned from TicToku’s in-game advertising donated to causes Dr. Shuntich supported (e.g., education).
