Japanese Puzzles Volume 1 (A Puzzle Game for Kindle) by puzzle.tv (\$0.99)

Quote:
 Product Description Japanese Puzzles is a collection of 5 different kinds of logic puzzles. This collection contains 100 logic puzzles: 20 each of Kakuro, Number Islands, Hitori, Picture Cross and Sudoku. In Kakuro, you insert numbers into a grid of squares so that the sum of the numbers matches the clue for that section without repeating digits. Number Islands is played on a grid of uncolored squares. Each square must be painted black or white according to a set of rules and numeric clues given. Hitori starts with a grid of squares containing numbers. The goal is to black-out some squares so that the remaining cells do not contain duplicate numbers in a given row or column. Picture Cross has an empty grid that must be colored according to numeric clues given for each row and column. In Sudoku, your 9x9 grid of squares starts with a few numbers, and your goal is to fill in the remaining squares such that no numbers are repeated in the same row, column, or box of 3x3 squares. Instructions and step by step tutorials are included, and hints are available to help you keep going if you get stuck. If you love number puzzles and are looking for something new, you'll love Japanese Puzzles on Kindle!

You receive a note from your old acquaintance John Croft. You expect nothing but an evening of good food and drink and tall tales. Instead, you quickly find yourself plunged into a conspiracy of black magic that involves some of the most powerful and important men in London - and possibly even someone else, someone much closer to your own heart. Interact with XVII-century London by typing simple commands like "Go to London Bridge", "Examine the note" or "Ask the bartender about the play". An elaborate hint system reveals as many clues as you desire to solve the story without spoiling the fun. Lovers of mysteries, horror, adventure games puzzles alike will play the role of the protagonist, experiencing the story from the inside.
