    This is a logical game with principles of Scrabble and Sudoku.

    In sumoku puzzles, color tiles with digits must be arranged in a crossword-style pattern such that each row and column adds up to a multiple of the key number. In puzzles colors or numbers cannot repeat within a single row or column.

    This game was originally developed by BlueOrange: http://www.blueorangegames.com

    Google Play link: https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=org.xbasoft.sumoku

    Looks interesting. I'll give it a try. Internet permissions are for ads I assume? Is there an ad free version should I really like it and want to buy it?

    Houston, we have a problem. Your app isn't hiding the soft navigation bars, so I can't see the needed info like the multiplier button, hint button, or the rest of that row. I tried on an Honor 8 (I could never even see the bar) and the Kindle Fire HD8 (I could see the whole bar at first, but now half is covered by the nav bar).

    I think the game has promise, but at the moment it is unplayable without knowing what the multiplier is.

    Clarification. When you open the app intitially, nav bars are hidden and it is playable.
    When you
    • switch to the app from the app switcher, or
    • the app is in cache and you refocus on it or
    • when you show the full screen ad between occasional levels
    the nav bars are not rehidden. So whatever you are doing when the app first loads to hide the soft nav keys needs to happen when the game screen reloads. I'm not sure of how this happens as I'm not a programmer, but i'm just thinking logically.

    Yes the Internet is needed only for ads. You also can get additional hints after viewing of video ads. I plan to create the paid ads-free version in the future.

    Great, I'll be at the front of the line to purchase. I'm really liking the game and it will be great if I don't have to FC it to continue play...
    ...once you fix ^^^ that bug. :) :p

    One more little nit to pick. Can you put a "Don't show this again" option on this pop up. Screenshot_20171021-131345.png

    I've submitted to Google Play a new version with fix of this bug.

    Your idea about 'Don't show this again' option is good! Will implement it.
