New Kindle Game - Sudoku

There is a new game on Kindle: Sudoku ($3.99), by Electronic Arts Inc. I'm looking forward to trying it, but suspect the K2 and even the KDX may be easier to use than the latest K3, due to Amazon's short-sighted removal of the number keys from the keyboard. Sure, they work with the Alt-Key, as they do on the KDX, but there isn't any writing on the keys to remind you how far over you have to go to get to the 5 or 6.

Book Description
Play Sudoku on Kindle - anytime, anywhere.

EA Sudoku contains thousands of built-in puzzles, as well as the ability to enter and play a puzzle from your favorite newspaper or magazine in "Newspaper" mode.

With five difficulty levels from "Easy" to "Insane," Sudoku offers plenty of fun for Sudoku players of all skill levels. Built-in game features let you make "Notes," "Undo" moves, and apply "Error Checking." If you get stuck, you can use the "Hints" feature to fill out a cell for you, or use "AutoFill" to display the notes on all open cells on the game board. You can even track your game stats to see how you progress over time.

EA Sudoku lets you exercise your mind in a fun way.

How did you manage to get it, all of the kindle active content is marked as not currently available! I called amazon support and they just said they would 'look into it'.

There's only one review, and it's gotten a horrible review.

I think we should wait for more reviews.

Ok, I played it. Works fine (there is a cheat sheet for the number keys, you can turn it off if your kindle actually came with numbers). Definitely better than the free version that you had to get on the web to use.

Several difficulty levels and has "regular" and "random" games (I would expect random ones to be a bit harder, on average). Also has a newspaper mode, so you can enter the puzzle from your paper, then ditch the paper and play (or, pull it from the paper's web site and save all that paper from being used).

Notes are very easy to make and easy to remove - I like that part better than using a pencil. Moving around is a bit slow, as is to be expected with the limitations of the hardware (click, click, click, click). Lights up a row or box if you get it right/complete. Won't let you put in a number if it has an obvious conflict (you can still put in the wrong number, of course).

As to availability, I have no clue - three other games by EA seem available, as are the three free games. This one, though, has apparently been set to "not available" for all countries.
