    Welcome to Android Forums @dafiryan


    You're image kind of reminds me of a game called "Sudoku" .

    Hi @dafiryan, welcome to Android Forums, I hope you stay with us and enjoy the Forums :).

    As @MrJavi said that is definitely Sudoku which I play regularly. The game is based on filling in the empty boxes so that each horizontal and vertical line and each of the nine squares contain the digits 1 to 9.

    I don't know what the second image is, I've never seen that before.

    I might have a go at the Sudoku example and post again if/when I solve it.

    :)

    Hi @tommo47 :) , if you're referring the the image I posted, it came from

    https://www.theguardian.com/lifeandstyle/2013/may/22/sudoku-2505-medium

    To tell you the truth, Im not all that familiar with Sudoku but it does look like fun .

    Hi @MrJavi, oh, that's a bit confusing although it does happen for some reason, I assumed the OP had posted both images but you actually posted the Sudoku one?

    Yes, I have a Sudoku app on my devices and play it when I've got nothing better to do and quite enjoy it.

    :thinking::)

    Unfortunately it is not Sudoku. In that game you can only use numbers once in each row 0-9 and the game is played in a square. The actual name of this game is Hashi (Bridges) for Android.

    The game page says;
    The goal of the Hashi is to connect every island with as much bridges as the number on the island displays. You win when every island is connected either directly or indirectly with every other island.

    Best wishes.

    It looks like there are two different games pictured.

    There are two pictures.

    The second one is definitely Sudoku.

    The first one seems to be a varient of Minesweeper.

    I'm going to download a Sudoku apk. Beimg a novice myself, what would you recommend.

    PS: If it has dark mode all the better but not a must. Thank you @tommo47 :)

    Sorry about that.
    I tapped on the photo, and saw the other one pop up as well.

    I didn't realize that all pics on the thread would show up like that, so mistakenly assumed that both were posted by OP.

    I skimmed the other responses, but did not see Minesweeper mentioned, and so made my post.

    Yeah, no Play Store apps for games like that.

    Probably +20MB for a game that requires 3MB or less.

    The rest would be ads and trackers.

    The ones I posted are ad free and open source.

    Yeah, I just checked: the Sudoku game I have installed (also from F-Droid) uses 4.7MB on my phone.
