About this game

How to play

The Calcudoku game grid has to be filled in such a way that the specified conditions are met by simple calculations in the four basic arithmetic operations.

As with Sudoku, no number may appear more than once in any row or any column. In addition, there are so-called cages, each of which contains a mathematical operator and a target value. This value corresponds to the result to be achieved by the calculation with the values in the cage.

Every puzzle has a unique solution that can be found without guessing.

Features

• five different grid sizes (from 5x5 to 9x9)
• six levels of difficulty per grid size
• 15,500 unique puzzles in total
• games are automatically saved
• unlimited undo/redo
• a built-in calculator

Origin

Calcudoku was developed by the Japanese teacher Tetsuya Miyamoto for his students to promote the ability of mathematical and logical thinking. The game is also known as MathDoku, Ken-Doku™ and KenKen™.

I'm a fan of the Andoku Sudoku app and I had high expectations of this app as it is from the same author, I wasn't disappointed! Much like the Sudoku app, there's built-in help/hints if you want them, to help teach you how to solve the puzzles. Unlike a lot of app games, there's no random 'chance element' in playing this, it is purely down to your skill to solve the puzzles. Recommended for people who prefer to exercise their brain rather than doing something mindless in their downtime!

Nice design, but serious defects.. here are only some: 1- you can not easily leave the game 2- it deletes my own pencil marks 3- it forces four arithmetic operations on me in each and every game..!! 4- zero is included as a candidate digit in 50% of the games. You can skip such games, but they are offered back to you each time you start a new game

This app uses division groups of more than two squares. I don't think that's valid in kenken. Also, there are no settings to disable automatic pencil erasing (when you pencil in a space with a number, ink in another space, and the penciled number is removed automatically), so you can't use alternate solving techniques or do it yourself.

This app does not aim to be an exact KenKen clone. In this app division for more than 2 cells is defined as the largest number divided by all other numbers in the cage. So 3/ could be 6/2/1, for example.
