Experience sudoku like you have never before! Sudoku Social takes the conventional game of sudoku and gives it a new twist. Using Twitter and Facebook, you can compete against other players from all over the world using any mobile connections (Wifi/3G/Edge).
Best of all, if you have no friends, or it’s just late into the night, you can play by yourself and even against a timer. If you’re tired of numbers, there are also letters and images. Skill levels can be set from easy to hard, so Sudoku Social caters to beginners, casual players and experienced iPhone gamers as well. You can even save, load, and replay your favorite games. If you want to cope with difficult sodukus, you can find some other apps written for intellectual wrestlers. Sudoku Social is built for fun.

“I have a computer science degree, tell me more technical information!” Since you so politely stated, we’ll give you a brief overview. Your iPhone/iPod Touch hooks up to Twitter using its API and SOAP authentication. This is it to ensure you are who you say you are. During this step, our SQL Database server is also connected to provide instant game message features between the two devices and to keep track of scores and rank. The connection is noticeably faster over Wifi, but we’ve optimized the program to work fast over 3G and even Edge. Our sudoku generating engine can produce over 6 quintillion (6 * 10^18) unique games. That means you could play for 32 billion years if you play a new game every second. If you achieve that feat, shoot us an email and we’ll give you a special prize*. Sudoku Social is compatible with Sudoku Vario.
