Looking for particular Sudoku game

    Today I had to wipe my Nexus One, and naturally I forgot to write down ALL the apps I'd installed. One in particular is hiding from my (I swear it is!) - it's a Sudoku game. Naturally I can't remember the exact title, but I do remember some things about it.. perhaps you can help

    • the app icon was a fading red to yellow background, with cyan blue grid lines
    • when you launched the app there was a title page: black with some kind of blue rams head type motif in the upper/middle region of the screen
    • on top of this were maybe 4 standard grey buttons to start, about, etc
    • when playing you found the numbers across the top, including a blank space at the end
    • you selected squares to enter new numbers into by taping that square, then a circle appeared inside (then you hit a number from the top)
    • in the free version (which I had) the menu button showed 2 options: (I think) new, show errors, hide notes

    any of this sounding familiar?

    I liked this particular Sudoku because of it's simplicity - no timers, no scores, no options to speak of. I've tried others, and some are better looking, but this is a very quick and simple version.

    Hopefully someone knows what I'm looking for :)

    Thanks in advance

    That's the one! Thanks :)

    I did the obligatory Market search first too - I guess I just couldn't see the forest for the trees

    and now I think I see why. AppBrain.com (great site btw, thanks for the info) shows that particular Sudoku game is available, but after adding it to my list and syncing my phone, the market search returns no matches.

    I guess the author removed it? sucks :(

    Still.. I learned something extremely useful from all this, so thanks!

    Download and install this app to your Droid.
    AppBrain Market Sync - Android app on AppBrain

    This app allows you to:
    "Browse the app market on AppBrain.com from a desktop computer and use this app to install and uninstall the apps you selected on that website!"

    I have a list built up on this website waiting to be loaded on my Dinc when I get it 6/4. Can't wait! I am also going to try the Sudoku game you love. I too like a simple easy Sudoku layout.

    Are you running 2.1 or 2.2?

    Yeah, i did that, and the game does show in my AppBrain Market Sync > Manage My Apps > Pending Changes list, but clicking on it shows "There are no matches in Android Market..."

    However, I wonder if it's because I just upgraded to Froyo, 2.2, and that app (and Scrambled Net Full) aren't available for 2.2, so they don't show in the market?

    clutching at straws here...

    I am running 2.1 on my Droid, and that version of Sudoku shows up in the market...

    You are correct, Dan :)

    The FroYo I have is the one that Google has on their site for a while (but is now removed), rather than a rooted verrsion. The fix requires a rooted phone, as far as I can tell, and I don't fancy doing that.. just in case. So, I'll stick to what I have and wait until the apps I want are updated or different ones that I like as much are developed.

    Thanks for all the help guys.. muchly appreciated :)

    Great news! This particular Sudoku game is now updated for 2.2, so I have it back without having to mess with my phone any further. And on my birthday too! :)

    Happy Birthday! My Dinc ships 6/3, so I should be getting it 6/7. I think this Sudoku game is the first thing I am going to load. I am curious about it now. :D
