## Dear friends!

Here is a new version of Sudoku puzzle!

#### Rules

Playing area represents a 9x9 grid divided into 3x3 sub-grids. Thus the playing area consists of 81 squares. At the start of the game, the board will have some of the squares filled in with digits from 1 to 9; they are called hints. The player has to fill empty cells with 1 to 9 digits so that digits do not recur in each row, each column and each of the nine 3x3 boxes.

The difficulty of Sudoku depends not on the amount of initially filled cells, but on the methods you apply for solving it.

Each puzzle has only one solution.

By clicking on the left button of the mouse a digit will be entered in the cell; the right button — possibles will be eliminated or added.

Difficulty level may be set in parameters.

• Select an empty cell and enter one of the possible values. For convenience, mark the cell by clicking «mark the digit» link, then click on the required cell.
• Solve Sudoku using the methods described above.
• In case all possible values have been exhausted, or you have made a mistake, go back to initial arrangement by clicking «special move» button and eliminate the value you have chosen out of the «candidates».

New game — starts a new game. By pressing «New game» button repeatedly you can browse the games and select the puzzle you prefer. By using up arrow and down arrow keys you can move through the offered layouts. Only the puzzles you started to play will enter your game history (i.d. you made at least one move). You may return to the previous layout by pressing a part of the button marked with.<.

Start anew — begin a new take.

Special move — this allows for a fast scroll back over the sequence of moves until you reach the stage required. This helps you quickly locate the stage where you possibly had made a mistake. After having pressed the «Special move» button, select any digit on the desk and click on it. You can exit the «Special move» mode by repeatedly clicking the «Special move» button, or by pressing the ESC key.

After selecting «Special move» you can scroll your decision with «Redo» and «Undo» buttons. Until you have made a new move you may cancel the special move by pressing the «Cancel special move» button (where the «Special move» button previously was).

Hint — show hint for next move.

Red colored number indicates the number of puzzles which you have solved. To go to another attempt, press on the relevant number. When returning to unsolved puzzles you shall see the previous positioning of the numbers. When you go to solved puzzles, you will be able to see how you had made your moves by scrolling «redo» and «undo» buttons.

You shall find puzzle info below the attempts list:

• Puzzle number (1);
