What's good: It's the Christmas season once again - a time for presents, family, song, and lights. This year, though, you'll need to add sudoku to the list, because innovation has taken this classic game, given it a holiday makeover, and packaged it up into one of the nicest sudoku games ever to hit the AppStore! In Christmas Sudoku, Santa comes sleighing into the screen in a flurry of snow and bells, dropping various Christmas icons into random squares on your classic Sudoku grid. These festive items include snowmen, baubles, candy canes, and wool socks, which take the place of the usual numbers and make the game both interesting and challenging to solve! Complete a square or a line to get extra hints, which come in handy when puzzles prove too tricky to figure out alone. Of course, if you think you're the sudoku expert, you can compete with a friend over Bluetooth to prove your skill or otherwise lose your self-imposed title to a superior opponent. It's good fun all the way and will surely put you in a merry mood with ninety colorful levels of varying difficulties, three cheery seasonal themes, mirthful Christmas music, and even a postcard creator to spread the joy! Don't miss out on this holiday treat - $ 1.99 is a great bargain price for this early Christmas gift from the amazing developers over at 99 games.

Suggestions for improvement: Add sound effects or some sort of notification for errors in placement.

    Thanks a lot for this wonderful review! :) We're really happy to know that you liked Christmas Sudoku. In v1.1 of the game does have error detection, if you switch on 'Error Check' in the options, every correct row or column or 3x3 grid you complete will be highlighted.
    You also have 4 different postcard backgrouds to choose from. :)
    Thanks a lot for all your suggestions. Hope you enjoy Christmas Sudoku for a long time to come!
    Merry Christmas!!! :)
