Explanation
After experiencing Sudoku on my Kobo Glo, I craved for more puzzle goodness. So I decided to program some myself . Takuzu has been one of my favorite Sudoku alternatives for a while, and now I've managed to bring it to Kobo devices! Enjoy unlimited puzzles in seven levels of difficulty and play on 10x10 or 12x12 grids. Tested and works on the Kobo Glo, Touch and Mini. It should work on the Aura as well; if you own one, please let me know if it does!

All feedback and suggestions are welcome! This is the first alpha version, with the following changelog:
Spoiler:
First alpha version
  • You can now play generated puzzles of multiple difficulties
  • The squares now scale with your display resolution
  • The game congratulates you when you solve the puzzle correctly
  • The game saves your progress when you quit
  • BUG FIXED: Touching the screen left or right of the playfield triggers unexpected cell changes

For those interested in how I programmed this and/or wanting to compile it for themselves, the source can be downloaded as well: takuzu_alpha_src.zip. Patches welcome; in particular I'm not happy about the DRYness of the checkSolution() method. C++ wizards more than welcome to step in .

Cool! On second thought, please don't send any patches yet. I've been rehauling the code a lot today, and got halfway implementing loading puzzles from files, so any patch will probably cause me more work than it'll save . Still, I'd very much like to hear if the posted version works on devices other than the Glo!
