Normally I wouldn't complain about price but I think devs do have to price themselves with their competition, and there aren't too many number puzzles in the app store for ten bucks.
If this ever comes on sale, I'll grab it for sure.

$4.99 - $6.99 I am willing to pay.. and did for most puzzle games.
the nonogmix is indeed addicting

this game though, is just solving some math. like Sudoken I thin it was called.
for the Itouch.

but who am I. everyone has their own opinion on how much to spent.

If you like logic puzzles, you can't go wrong with Puzzle Maniak which is a collection of 20 types of infinately-generated puzzles, for two bucks.

This KenKen game is significantly better than the competition, in my opinion, and I own them all. 20,000 puzzles, each with only one solution, a total that I doubt most people could complete in a lifetime. It also has and entirely new take on KenKen, called Hidden Cage puzzles that are phenomenal. It has an extensive, tiered hint system, which can serve as a tutorial to new players. The game has a level of polish far above any other competing product. It's definitely a best-in-class title.

Edit: I hope this is a typo, but the app store description says "2,000" puzzles. The PC version has 20,000.

I thought that Latkin (no longer available on iTunes) was one of the better Ken Ken versions, largely due to the solutions possibilities that one could visualize. Does this game do this well?

And, if you could quickly run through 2000 puzzles to answer the question about 2000 vs. 20000 that would also be most appreciated...

I dunno, there are about three and a half billion* Sudoku games and variants on the number puzzle genre on the App Store. I really don't think this is anything unique enough to warrant that kind of price tag with such an extreme amount of competition and display no obvious ways in which this differentiates itself significantly enough from its peers to stand on its own merit.
