Awww. A puzzle game. Hearing KenKen by Capcom really made me think of Street Fighter and so I got my hopes up that this might be one of the only decent fighting games for the iPhone/iPod Touch. Oh well, it looks interesting. I already have a boatload of puzzles games though. Don't really see anything that makes it stand out to me.

I've seen this before. It's a really neat concept. $4.99 is a pretty steep price though. Many people won't even like it too because it involves math. I'll snipe this, and give feedback if the price ever lowers.

Think I might try to give this a spin but $5 hot dang only 3x3 to 6x6 too. Latkin is 3x3 to 9x9 and infinite puzzles for $2. Many teachers use it in Japan. Teaches math while letting the kids do puzzles.

Here's is the kenken thread btw.

No need take one for team... there is a demo (2DOKU has a demo version) you can already play see if you like the game. Only question here is does the UI appeal to you and do the controls work.

+1 I have to say, I was thinking the same thing. Street Fighter would kill in the app store right now. Please Capcom bring us Street Fighter.

Yeah being made by Capcom and using the name Ken is a real letdown for the consumer when they find out it's just a puzzle game. Stop teasing Capcom!

It costs too much, imo. But it's from Capcom, so the 4.99 price tag was expected (by me anyway.)
