You can try before you buy with Zengaku Lite!

You know Sudoku. You know Kakuro. Discover Zengaku! A blend of Sudoku and Kakuro puzzles combining both to create a puzzling and unique challenge.

With Zengaku we’ve taken some of the best elements from Sudoku and Kakuro to create a number puzzle game that we think takes things to the next level. With Kakuro you get the challenge of finding sums within interesting patters similar to a crossword. Sudoku limits you to numbers 1 through 9 appearing only once in a row or column. Zengaku blends those concepts creating a logic/strategy puzzle that is fresh and new and fun. You might say its Kakuro and Sudoku remixed.

We’ve also created a nice simple user interface that gets out of your way and lets you solve the puzzle the way you want to. We’d even go so far as to say it’s almost Zen-like. But that’s not exactly how we came up with the name for our puzzle game. The name is actually from a japanese word that means: total, full amount, or sum.

So if you add all these great features up what you get is Zengaku. And if you give it a try you’ll be done with Sudoku and Kakuro forever. Zengaku is the future. Start solving these great puzzles now.

The rules of Zengaku are very simple:

– The numbers 1 through 9 must appear exactly once in every column and in every row.
– Numbers in a column must sum to the number above them.
– Numbers in a row must sum to the number to their left.
– A circle joining any two squares indicates that the digits in those squares must be consecutive.
– Squares which are not joined by a circle must not have consecutive digits.

Zengaku comes with the following features:

1. 80 levels, split across 3 difficulty levels plus a set of mini-puzzles to get you started.
2. Zoomable game field to make entering digits easier. You can use a double tap or pinch gesture.
3. Ability to enter multiple notes into a cell to keep track of possible answers.
4. A check button to verify your answers whenever you’re ready.
5. Puzzle progress is saved for each started puzzle.

Brush up on your math and logic skills, you’ll need them!

    As a big sudoku and kakuro fan, I really liked this game too. It was a challenge, but familiar.
