# Sudoku Dragon Information

Sudoku Dragon aims to suit both new and experienced players of Sudoku.

For the complete beginner we fully support for the 4x4 version of the puzzle. Although much simpler to solve it has the same rules of the regular sized 9x9 version. It gives a gentle introduction to the puzzle and lets you master the basic strategies before tackling the regular 9x9 and larger grid sizes. A full set of help and hints are available. The grid can show color coded possibilities to indicate the Sudoku rule that can be used to solve a square. The program provides standard, Diagonal (or X Sudoku), Word Sudoku, Samurai Sudoku and Jigsaw (or Squiggle) Sudoku puzzles. At any time you can call up the full list of possibilities for an individual square to see which number assignments are possible and which are impossible. A timer is run while you are solving the puzzle so you can always pit yourself against the clock.

Our range of animated guides take you through all the main solution strategies. Sit back and watch as example puzzles are solved with a full explanation of what strategy is being used.

Sudoku Dragon has all the features you are looking for in a Sudoku puzzle solver. We have provided a solution that is fully integrated with the Internet. You can use the program to download new puzzles from our web site or contribute your own Sudoku puzzles to our online forums. You can update the software directly from the Internet.

You may find other Sudoku solver software online but we don't believe you will find any that has the full range of features that we offer.

Advanced features are provided for the Sudoku expert. Experts will not need to use the possibility display, they may want to work out the possibilities for themselves without help. You can mark individual Sudoku square possibilities and impossibilities by just using the CTRL and SHIFT with a number key. You can add notes to any Sudoku square and these can be printed out with the puzzle. A hint option is provided that allows an expert player to check that all the squares so far allocated are correct - without seeing the whole solution. Another hint option lets you check that all the possibilities that you have marked are genuine possibilities.

The program keeps track of each square allocation that you make so you can quickly and easily go back to try alternative possibilities without needing to remember in which order you set the squares.

To keep Sudoku experts on their toes we provide the very challenging 16x16 and 20x20 grids. Each square has at least 16 possible allocations and this makes it a real test of skill to work through all the possibilities.Puzzle generation has six difficulty levels for each of the ten puzzle sizes.

Flexibility is the key. If you want to change the size, look and feel of the Sudoku puzzle grid this can be done simply and easily. You can choose your own colors and fonts, as well as sound effects. The program will remember these settings each time you play.

Our online forums let you share your successes and queries with other devoted Sudoku players. You can share your special strategies for solving puzzles, swap particular puzzles or just debate the finer points of Sudoku.
