"Between comical mini-games, fast-paced play and an interesting core puzzle game, this scores quite well as a casual multiplayer game"

At first glance first glance, Zendoku doesn't quite look right. At first you wonder why the DS needs yet another cart full of puzzles; especially considering that not even your great-aunt Judy could finish all of them. The bewilderment deepens as you...

Gameplay steals the show here, over anything else that this title has to offer, the gamplay itself keeps you rapt in its world

Based on the popular game Sudoku, Zendoku features similar gameplay combined with martial art themes. Zendoku follows the basic rules of Sudoku, and gamers must fill in all the blank squares with symbols so that each row and column contains each token wit

It's sudoku - now with added annoyances

Sudoku with fighting: it's mental jujutsu!

Maybe that's why sudoku needs ninjas, special attacks and head-to-head battles

You can teach an old dog new tricks.

A decent effort but some fine tuning needed.
