FINALLY THE WAIT IS OVER! SUDOKU HAS A REAL COMPETITOR!
Imagine a puzzle that is easy to learn, has simple rules, requires no math skills and is addictive as Sudoku. One that possesses a strong newspaper presence, has a huge amount of depth, encourages multiple solving techniques, has great re-playability, promotes a sense of achievement, has different levels of difficulties and doesnít have a Japanese name. The English translation for "The Next Sudoku" is "Str8ts © TM".

THE POWER OF SEQUENCING!
Str8ts © TM is a fine tuned puzzle relying on strategically placed black cells that create solvable compartments. The compartments of empty white cells need to be filled in with sequential numbers that donít necessarily need to be in numerical order.

If a game was specifically designed to merge these two Goliath's, Str8ts © TM would be the obvious answer. Set the game on the playing card mode and start creating straights.

COOL CONTROLS AND ELEGANT GRAPHICS!

DIFFERENT LEVELS TO CHOOSE FROM!
Str8ts © TM has 4 different grades and a total of 751 different puzzles to choose from providing endless hours of excitement and entertainment.

Quite the price tag.

Almost all iOS spenders don't mind - they're not all tightwads like the tiny but very vocal minority who seem to get off on bitching about nearly free prices permanently.

Superb game!

If you like good, well-designed logic puzzles (with unique solutions!), Str8ts is excellent. Challenging but not frustrating. Well sequenced puzzles with a great tutorial and solid interface. For people who play and enjoy sudoku, nurikabe, masyubug, jabeh, kenken, kakuro... this game is a joy to play. Go to their website first and check out the tutorial and the strategy.

I second that opinion.

The price tag is higher than average but the app is pretty much perfect for what it's intended to do; the interface is wonderful, the display very clear and understandable. The game itself is very challenging and enjoyable.

I've only played the first three levels of the easiest difficulty so far - and they were tricky enough... there's many more to go. For $2.99, given the amount of entertainment I'll be given, I really don't think the app is overpriced and I'm very happy with my purchase.

This name is wrong. It should be Str8s. Eight has a 'T' sound in it.
