Starting on my 2nd time through!

Love Kakuro! Used to play this years ago in Games magazine before it went overseas and got renamed. Finished all the levels and have started my 2nd time through the game. This is a well done app and the games are appropriate for each level. The only issue I’ve run into, is that if I play too long without restarting the app, it will suddenly go back to the main screen and appear to have lost all progress on all levels. If I close and restart, everything is fine, but it was heart stopping the first few times it happened. Anyway, I highly recommend this game (and any others from “Real”.) Thanks for the awesome game, guys!!

A fascinating game, expertly implemented

I’ve been a fan of logic puzzles for most of my life, but I’d never heard of kakuro until recently. After trying it once I was an instant fan. Don’t let the math intimidate you: this is a direct relative of sudoku. Apart from the fairly simple sums, kakuro follows the same basic sudoku-style formula. You establish possibilities and then eliminate the impossibilities.

This isn’t the only implementation of Kakuro out there, but it may be the best. Real Kakuro provides a beautiful, functional interface that doesn’t get in the way of the game itself. It offers optional guidance to completely eliminate the need to solve the addition problems, but this is easily disabled. In short, it’s simple, it’s fun, it’s great.

Update needed!!

I am having a great deal of problems with the app since the last Apple IOS update. I have had a few issues with the two updates prior to this, but it is horrible this time. A majority of the time when I complete a puzzle it kicks me out of the app. When it doesn’t, it shows me the ad, then allows me to open a new puzzle, but will not let me play until it kicks me back out or I close it and open it back up. Finally, two times now, I have had it go to the ad then instead of closing it, get a black screen with the Google ad in the top inch and black screen for the rest and it does not do anything. I cannot play at all right now, even closing it down and going back in is not resetting it!!
