RIP Robin Williams (1951-2014)

Posted on 08/14/14
Robin Williams (1951-2014) Robin Williams was an absolutely exceptional comedian, talented actor, and holder of a special place in video game history: He was the first really famous gamer I know of. I’m sure there were others, but they kept a comparatively low profile, unlike one...

Soccer Sudoku 2010 Review

Posted on Friday, July 16 @ 13:01:40 Eastern by
Forgive me for being extremely late to the party, but did you know there was a World Cup going on?

My understanding is that you've always needed an entire soccer team to win it, but no longer.  Soccer Sudoku 2010 allows you, the simpleton iPhone owner with no physical ability to play soccer, to compete for the world cup on behalf of your beloved nation (might I suggest the GR motherland?)

OK, so you're not playing for the actual world cup, but Soccer Sudoku 2010 does have persistant challenges that allow you to attempt to sit atop a worldwide leaderboard as a representative.  Every day of the week, a new sudoku puzzle is pushed to every owner of Soccer Sudoku.  Completing this puzzle will determine your standing worldwide.

If you're not the competitive type, or would rather face off against yourself, Soccer Sudoku 2010 also offers up an Arcade mode and a Relax mode.  These are pretty much exactly what you expect them to be.  Stroke your ego by besting your own times in Arcade or take a page out of Frankie's book and check out drop-in drop-out Relax mode.

Of course, Soccer Sudoku's biggest gimick is the aesthetic.  The app is skinned with all kinds of soccer bullshit that I didn't care for.  The App store will forever plague developers with the need to catch the zeitgeist.  Notice how I've completey screwed that concept by reviewing a world cup app well after the world cup's finale?

Regardless of whether Soccer Sudoku caught that zeitgeist and held the Top 25 charts under its thumb, the app is a capable sudoku game and the worldwide leaderboards are a big draw for those of you who love to compare e-penis (here's looking at you GR community).  Check it out on the app store here.
