"Buku Sudoku" allows players to display hints, show errors, reverse moves and solve puzzles step-by-step. Players can also create, save, print and email any sudoku brainteaser.

"Buku Kakuro" introduces millions of kakuro puzzles (also known as cross sums) that vary in difficulty, board size and appearance. Players can choose from vibrant themes like "Exotic Shores", "Tastes of the Orient", and "Serene Vistas". "Buku Kakuro" ships with a built-in tutorial as well as options that let users create, save, print and email games.

Four diverse game modes--Classic, Math, Word, and Shuffle--are sure to please even the most finicky mahjongg fans in "Buku Mahjongg". "Buku Mahjongg" supplies a variety of tile layouts for each mode, and players are free to create their own layouts using the game editor. In Classic Mode, the goal is to select pairs of matching tiles in order to clear the board. In Shuffle Mode, the rules are the same except players are allowed to rearrange the board up to three times. In Word Mode, the goal is to spell words in order to clear tiles and rack up bonus points. Similarly, mathematical formulas send scores skyrocketing in Math Mode.

"Buku Sudoku", "Buku Kakuro" and "Buku Mahjongg" each ship with options to play in both English and Spanish.
