Hidato Puzzle Pack 1 (100 puzzles) by makers of Wordjong

Hidato $2 has 100 puzzles...hmmm never heard of this ...even though has Japanese name it's by an Israeli doctor. Been trying Monday (easiest) puzzles perhaps gonna have to try it without the hints. No idea if I like it or not.

Basically says 100% pure logic so I like that although not sure if it's up my alley or not.

The free flash version is here. Make sure to play Monday.

Yeah, I picked this up too, but another title I've been waiting dropped tonight, so I won't get to it right away.

Well it's gonna be between this and Hitori. Hitori is really Japanese so still deciding on a couple factors.

my impressions from full version:
I have never heard of Hidato before, but I find its concept very interesting. It is little bit similar to Sudoku - pen and paper game with numbers, but your point is to "create" path from point A to point B - from number 1 to number X. Some numbers are fixed and you have to complete others. It looks like easy task but it definitely needs some thinking. I was really entertained by this concept and iPhone version is flawless. It offers nice graphics, scoring system and 100 puzzles with various difficulty. If you are still not sure if this is game for you, LITE version with 10 puzzles (complete them and you will definitely know if you will enjoy full version) is available for download for free. Go for it!

Great game, great value

I have played over 80 (of the 100) levels and it is a great logic puzzle game. Unique solutions with an even and fair degree of increasing difficulty. Carefully designed games ... not randomly generated. See the flash version (just Google it).

Much better than Numbrix (similar game design).

Strongly recommend Hidato (and Str8ts!) for logic puzzle fans.

This is an awesome puzzle game, similar to Sudoku in a way.
I haven't had time to go far yet, but it's worth the $2.

Games, games, games..
