Presented by Cracking The Cryptic, YouTube’s most popular Sudoku channel, comes a new game based on our frequently requested variant: Arrow Sudoku.

In Arrow Sudoku, every puzzle contains a handful of "arrows" laid out in unique patterns. The numbers found along the shaft of the arrow must sum up to the number at the base. This simple rule leads to endless variety in the puzzles you will conquer. Fans of our previous game Miracle Sudoku will enjoy the hybrid puzzles we have included in the collection including Arrow Knight and Arrow Sandwich puzzles. These puzzles were curated by Mark and Simon and include puzzles made by them as well as from a large number of guest creators. Fans of Cracking the Cryptic's YouTube channel will recognize many of these authors as some of the most talented creators working today!

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 fantastic App!

This is the latest in a series of Sudoku and Sudoku variant puzzles put together by Simon Anthony and Marc Goodliffe at Cracking the Cryptic. Like the others before it, this app does not disappoint! There is something for every level of Sudoku player. There is nothing computer-generated here, everything is hand-crafted to perfection. I downloaded the app the day it became available and am doing everything within my power to keep myself from powering through them all at once. I know it sounds a little corny, but like a good meal, these puzzles cannot be gulped down, they need to be savored. The challenge is going to be to pace myself and then wait for the promised updates. Great work guys, I can’t wait to see what you come up with next!

Arrows for my <3

Love this app. Got through the first couple and they were great fun. I have done a bunch of the other apps, but not any of the arrow puzzles from the CTC video series. I really enjoyed these and will hope my skills can keep pace with the increasing difficulty. I see phiatomefel and that’s scary!

Getting sloppy

The puzzles are quite difficult, I’m no sudoku wiz so I can usually only get about 20 puzzles in (this is my fifth CTC app) before I have to look at the hints, and this time I have found two hints in a row (puzzles #29 and #30) where the hints are just plain wrong, and therefore not helpful and frustrating because it reduces me to bifurcation. I’m going to guess based on the grammar that mark has written the hints and that’s why they are so obfuscated and rushed, perhaps Simon should try writing them on the next one
