Presented by Cracking The Cryptic, YouTube’s most popular Sudoku channel, comes a new game based on one of their most popular videos: Miracle Sudoku.

Miracle Sudoku features beautiful puzzles that at first glance look impossible to solve!! Indeed, some of our Miracle puzzles have as few as two givens digits (!) but you will find them all to be solvable with a bit of clever logic! At launch you will be able to play through 4 variants all of which make use of a non-consecutive restraint (ie neighboring cells cannot have two consecutive numbers in them). They are Non-Consecutive Sudoku, classic Miracle Sudoku (non-consecutive + knight + king restrictions), Non-Consecutive Thermo Sudoku and Non-Consecutive Sandwich Sudoku. Each of these variants has a unique feel which refreshes the logic you may be used to, especially in thermo and sandwich sudoku!

As with our other games (‘Classic Sudoku’, ‘Sandwich Sudoku’, ‘Chess Sudoku’ and 'Thermo Sudoku'), Simon Anthony and Mark Goodliffe (the hosts of Cracking The Cryptic) have written all the hints for the puzzles. So you know that every puzzle has been play-tested by a human being to ensure that each sudoku is interesting and fun to solve.

In Cracking The Cryptic’s games, players start with zero stars and earn stars by solving puzzles. The more puzzles you solve, the more stars you earn and the more puzzles you get to play. Only the most dedicated (and cleverest) sudoku players will finish all the puzzles. Of course the difficulty is carefully calibrated to ensure lots of puzzles at every level (from easy through to extreme). Anyone familiar with their YouTube channel will know that Simon and Mark take pride in teaching viewers to be better solvers and, in these games, they always craft the puzzles with the mindset of trying to help solvers improve their skills.

Mark and Simon have both represented the UK many times at the World Sudoku Championship and you can find more of their puzzles (and lots of others) on the internet’s biggest sudoku channel Cracking The Cryptic.

Another great app and great puzzles by CTC

Yet another great sudoku app! I’ve only played the first 4 and I’m loving the variety already. There’s really interesting mechanics with the different variants put together so the puzzles are quite nice so far. I was a bit worried about the difficulty, but it seems to be quite approachable so far. An there are hints if you need help. The different gameplay options also make it easier to manage the constraints.

The only thing is that I wish the number and colour picker buttons were a bit bigger. I struggle pressing them some times.

Had to give it a better review

After solving a good chunk of the problems I can say this is my favorite sudoku game yet. The combinations of different kinds of sudoku make for really interesting problems. Definitely recommend completing the other ones before playing this game as there are a lot of different mechanics at play.
This is my favorite sudoku game they’ve made by far, and that’s a high bar.

Hand crafted puzzles make a difference.

I got bored early in the sudoku craze, but watching Cracking the cryptic brought me back into trying a few. These don’t feel rote at all - they feel like you are being guided through the solution like a good puzzle game. The easy ones are easy, but if the difficult ones are anything like the channel, there is plenty of challenge in store.
