The last craze over here, and the rest of the world it seems, is Sudoku.

I've seen advertisements with claims like 'the biggest puzzle craze since the Rubik's cube!' As a result, many people have been asking me about it. It did look like the sort of thing I would enjoy, however, as I only do things in iPAQ form now (e.g. iPAQ ebooks, iPAQ scrabble, iPAQ monopoly, etc.), I wasn't going to try Sudoku until I could try it on the iPAQ.

Yesterday when reading the latest Pocket PC Thoughts e-newsletter, there was an advert for iPAQ Sudoku. I downloaded the trial and gave it a go. Unfortunately, this particular Sudoku wouldn't run on my iPAQ. It should have been compatible so perhaps it was just a corrupted download. Anyway, not to be put off, I logged into Handango and searched for other iPAQ Sudoku games. I found Pocket Sudoku and downloaded the trial.

I'm pretty happy with Pocket Sudoku so far. If I'm still enjoying it after the trial expires then I will buy the full version.

Did you buy the game? Was it any good?

I only started playing last week, and not sure if I love it enough much to buy.

Nah, I didn't buy it. I got bored with it by the end of the week.

It was actually pretty good though. It wasn't really the iPAQ application I bored with, I just wasn't really that interested in Sudokus anymore.
