The goal of Pogo™ Sudoku
is to fill the 9x9 grid with numbers so that each row, column and 3x3 region contains a unique arrangement of the numbers 1-9. No number may appear more than once in each row, column and 3x3 region.
When you start a new game, select the difficulty that works best for you. On easier difficulties, more numbers are visible on the board at start.
Playing is simple. Just select an empty square on the grid. The game will highlight the row and column so you can easily check to see which numbers are already placed.
With a grid square selected, you can choose any of the number tiles along the bottom. If the number you choose is correct, it will be placed on the board. If it is incorrect, you will suffer a point penalty. You can also use your keyboard to input a number into a selected grid square.
