The PuzzleMe Sudoku Smart Tutor enables new Sudoku solvers to begin and become better in solving. It provides hint and guides the player to understand the game dynamics better.

PuzzleMe’s unique Sudoku tutor is the perfect guide for users wanting to improve their game. It offers hints at each step, guiding the player toward the right solution. These hints range from the simple tactics, such as elimination, to the most advanced, such as the “X-Wing” and “XY-Wing” patterns needed to solve “impossibly hard” grids. The Smart Tutor ensures users have a way to make progress and do not get stuck for long periods.

Players working on a PuzzleMe Sudoku can make use of several assist features to ease their play experience.

Pencil mode: Using a pencil to note potential numbers for a cell, helps players in arriving at the right number without having to memorize the possibilities. The numbers, acting as a placeholder, are entered in a smaller font size within the selected box. Users can switch between the pencil and pen modes by clicking on the space bar on a desktop device.

Show candidates: Players can make use of the “show candidates” function for a cell or the grid. It helps in verifying potential numbers for a cell or gaining visibility of the numbers in the grid for a head-start. This function is disabled in Contest Mode.

Undo and Redo: Recovering from typos and exploring alternate paths to the solution is convenient with PuzzleMe. Players can make use of the Undo and Redo functions to retrace their steps through multiple levels without having to keep track manually. Both these options are disabled in Contest Mode.

Check and reveal: One incorrect placement can lay the groundwork for a series of errors. To prevent a negative domino effect, players can use the Check feature to check if their entry is correct and identify incorrect placements in the entire grid. PuzzleMe’s complementing Reveal feature nudges players toward the right solution. Sudokus in Contest Mode have both check and reveal disabled.

Progress is saved as long as the player can be identified with their unique ID.
