The Logical Choice for all Sudoku Addicts

For Immediate Release

August 2005

With over 20 million potential daily players, this craze is definitely here to stay and the puzzling phenomenon of Sudoku shows no signs of slowing down as more and more products enter the market to cater for the nation's addiction.

But are you getting the best value for your money? Focus Multimedia has released 25,000 Sudoku Puzzles on PC CD-ROM for just £4.99. With 15,000 more puzzles than any other PC software at this price point, 25,000 Sudoku Puzzles is the puzzle collection of a lifetime. Literally...if you play just one puzzle a day, this software will supply enough puzzles to last the next 68 years, with a completely different and unique puzzle each time!

Eliminating excessive erasing and messy mistakes, 25,000 Sudoku Puzzles takes away the pen and paper and allows players to test their answers on the computer screen with a simple click-and-enter method. For when you're on the move and a PC isn't accessible, you can print the puzzles and take them with you!

25,000 Sudoku Puzzles contains a full, easy-to-understand Manual to explain the rules of the game. You can test your new found skills using the Classic 9*9 Grid or if you'd rather start of easy or you've got young children there is always the 4*4 Junior Grid!

You can alter the difficulty level, ranging from easy to downright devilish to really challenge your Sudoku skill. If you're still struggling, why not request a hint or reveal the solution to a particular square - or the entire puzzle! On the other hand, if you don't want to cheat, simply save your puzzle and try again later. Maybe you've attempted a puzzle in the newspaper and just can't wait for the solution...put yourself out of your misery and enter the numbers into the Sudoku Solver* to view the correct solution!

Make your game play even more challenging by timing how long it takes to complete a puzzle and then try and beat your best time. Or challenge the software and complete the puzzle within the suggested target time! You can even spread the Sudoku fun to friends and family who are yet to try the addictive number-placing puzzle by emailing them puzzles - with or without the solutions!

Key Features include:

  • 25,000 unique Sudoku puzzles
  • Up to 4 difficulty levels from easy to devilish
  • 2 grid sizes (9*9 & 4*4)
  • Print puzzles and take them with you
  • Sudoku Solver that reveals the solution to any puzzle*
