From the publisher: Sudoku lets kids and adults alike have fun while stimulating their brains. The game uses the Nintendo DS's signature dual screens and stylus instead of complicated button controls, allowing players of all ages and experience levels to enjoy the familiar pen-and-paper sudoku puzzles, stress- and hassle-free.

"Sudoku" is a puzzle game where the object is to fill in the squares with single-digit numbers from 1 to 9. The catch is that no row, column, or 3x3 block can contain the same digit twice.

The game contains 300 "official" puzzles crafted by NIKOLI, the company that started the sudoku craze. The puzzles are divided into easy, normal, and hard levels, and as players progress they will get a chance to try master-grade puzzles. The simple rules require no math – just make sure no row, column, or 3x3 blocks contain the same digit twice. Players must pay close attention to the squares already filled-in, and use their brains to their full 1 potential to find the correct solution. Sudoku is truly the ultimate brainteaser.
