Presented by Cracking The Cryptic, YouTube’s most popular Sudoku channel, comes a new game featuring one of the most popular puzzle types: Thermo Sudoku. How does Thermo Sudoku work? Well each sudoku grid contains thermometer shapes (often drawn to create themes) and digits on thermometers must increase as one moves further from the bulb end. The interactions between the thermometers leads to new logical ideas and patterns that completely refreshes the standard sudoku solving experience. As with their other games (‘Classic Sudoku’, ‘Sandwich Sudoku’ and ‘Chess Sudoku’), Simon Anthony and Mark Goodliffe (the hosts of Cracking The Cryptic) have personally crafted the hints for the puzzles. So you know that every puzzle has been play-tested by a human being to ensure that the sudoku is interesting and fun to solve. In Cracking The Cryptic’s games, players start with zero stars and earn stars by solving puzzles. The more puzzles you solve, the more stars you earn and the more puzzles you get to play. Only the most dedicated (and cleverest) sudoku players will finish all the puzzles. Of course the difficulty is carefully calibrated to ensure lots of puzzles at every level (from easy through to extreme). Anyone familiar with their YouTube channel will know that Simon and Mark take pride in teaching viewers to be better solvers and, in these games, they always craft the puzzles with the mindset of trying to help solvers improve their skills. Mark and Simon have both represented the UK many times at the World Sudoku Championship and you can find more of their puzzles (and lots of others) on the internet’s biggest sudoku channel Cracking The Cryptic. Features: 40 beautiful puzzles on launch 100 puzzles in all with regular updates to reach this total in the first year post launch. Hints crafted by Simon and Mark!
Incredible app. Full of beautiful puzzles, and you can tell each one is hand crafted to follow a logical path. The hints are well written too, giving you just enough to get back on track, but not spoiling too much and allowing you to feel like you’ve still cracked a tough one! Input method is very well designed as well, and I have very large fingers, so that’s always an issue.
While I haven’t had this game for very long I’m a huge fan of it, only done about 10 levels so far and still chugging. I’m only concerned that there are 40 levels but who knows how long they’ll take me :). I’m not even a huge sudoku fan and I’m addicted. Again with hopefully more levels in the future it’s a great pickup.
I’ve always been a fan of Cracking the Cryptic ever since I’ve first seen them. This is a great app and the levels are very interesting and make you use your brain in a great way.
Congrats on another excellent app. Thermo is becoming one of my favorite variants. Thank you Mark and Simon!
1 puzzle in and it’s very fun an entertaining. Just as good as the other three apps by you guys. Been super entertained by going through Sudoku and Sudoku Variants during quarantine so I am happy for more types to go through more puzzles of a different variant.
I am really enjoying this variant. Very clean and beautiful interface. Mark and Simon have released another gem!
I really love these variant sudokus - I had lots of fun with sandwich sudoku and the chess sudoku apps, and I am so excited to dive right into these! Thank you Mark and Simon!!
This is the fourth app I have now downloaded on my iPad/iPhone and enjoy everyone of them. The sandwich sudoku seems to be the hardest of the lot and the classic one is just that - classic. I have just done a few of the thermo sudoku and again wish the hints would not totally overlay the puzzle itself. I wish it were just in one of the corners with smaller font size.
