I wanted a game to play inbetween games, or relax with in the evening, and this is perfect.

It's calming, and very friendly to use. Plenty of options to help you along if you are new to Sudoku, such as hints with optional explainations, and being able to highlight rows, columns or squares.

I really like the ability of being able to 'pencil' in numbers too.

It's not widescreen, or even a high resolution, but you don't really notice this once you get playing.

It also cycles through various background 'scenes', so the game doesn't have the same old bland background all the time.

Four levels of difficulty, good highlighting features, easy grid for selecting numbers, and the ability to pencil in numbers which is typically necessary for the hardest puzzles. It's good as far as Sudoku is concerned. Now whether you like Sudoku or not is an entirely different subject.

Awhile back I had a very special request from a friend whose disability had progressed to a point where writing is no longer an option: Find a mouse only Sudoku game playable offline. So when I saw Zen of Sudoku, I picked it up.

When I first booted up, I ran into a problem. The game booted in Fullscreen Mode and immediately asked for my name. Without Onscreen Keyboard accessible due to fullscreen mode, I was unable to enter my name. I needed someone to type in my name before I could move on.

Once my name was entered everything was ok. Options let me change to Windowed Mode which is borderless allowing me to access my desktop easily. There’s no other accessibility options. No colorblind options or input configuration are found.

Gameplay so far has been point and click. To choose what number you would like to enter into the puzzle you can click numbers in a grid & click the one you’d like. The boxes are kind of small in windowed mode so some precision is needed. You can correct any mistakes however. When trying to use the keyboard to choose squares or enter numbers, I had no luck. So far it seems you need a point & click input but we’ll keep our eye out for any changes.

The game is a peaceful and relaxing. There’s no timer even on harder difficulties and you can stop at anytime and resume later if you’re feeling fatigued for just need a break. Audio consists of relaxing sounds but isn’t needed for gameplay.

Zen of Sudoku has been fun so far and will definitely satisfy any sudoku cravings. We’ll keep checking it out to see if gameplay changes or additional issues pop up, but the first look has easy to play as long as you can point & click.
