Sideview(sudoku game) HD featured in News&Worthy!!!




Siveview is a puzzle game. Player needs to restore the
board cells's color based on the color of the side.
It is a logical game, and also needs your patient.
It contains 104 puzzles, from easy to difficult.

The color on the side is the first color when you
look through the board. i.e. left side's color means
you look the board from left to right, each row has
a color that you met first, and these color is shown
on the left side, the right/top/bottom side colors
are same.

The board size is from 3x3 to 8x8, the color number is
from 3 to 6. Every color will apears in each row and
column, and **ONLY** apears once! Emtpy cells in row
or column could exceed 1.

The difficult puzzle is REAL challenge.

I am playing this for a while now, but I am really puzzled.
I know sudoku, but not seeing the logic in it yet, with the colors on the outside.

There should be a small tutorial in it, cause 1 help page does not cut it.
With using the hints, I am trying to get the hang of it, but I am really puzzled

like puzzle 2 or 3, I am trying to do it, with the rules but then the color parts on the outside, do not make any sence.

using the the color is the 1st one to show up in a row, does not seem to do the trick.. unless I am missing something.

I am waiting with my review on Itunes, until I have a better understanding, cause I don't want to give is a low star, since the games looks cool, and I might just not get it yet

It is hard to tell, but I am guessing that you will likely have some spaces that are blank, so that the rules of having one color only in each row / column will be satisfied. Does that work?

Yeah I figured it out.. it's more complicated than the normal sudoku.
What threw me of, was that none of the rows could NOT contain more then 1 of the same color.

Problem was that I was also looking Diagonally, since that did contain more then 1 of the same color.. (had one with 2 or 3 green ones in a row)

Unless that's a bug..

Left a review for you

I am playing this for a while now, and had to get use to the colors instead of numbers.
This game makes you more think, on how to place your colors.
Before I knew I was 3 hours into the game, and must say... it's asking for more
I hope to see more puzzles in the future like this.
Keep up the good job, and highly recommended for every person who likes to think and puzzle
