Easy to learn and difficult to master, KENKEN takes the typical number puzzle to the next level with a fun and challenging analytical element. The latest edition of the popular game features a streamlined interface, tons of new puzzles and a tutorial by puzzle master Will Shortz. In KENKEN players unravel the puzzle by entering the correct number within a 3 x 3 to 9 x 9 sized grid. Like Sudoku, each number can only be used once per row. However, KENKEN Pro ups-the-ante by incorporating basic math functions into the solution. So, while each number can only be used once per row, it must also equate to the numerical value of its respective cage. If it sounds difficult, it’s not. KENKEN is featured in the New York Times and published in more than 70 other periodicals around the world. The game is also a popular math teaching tool for educators worldwide. Features: • Packed with brain-straining KENKEN puzzles approved by game’s inventor, Tetsuya Miyamoto. • A vast array of difficulties and puzzle sizes ranging from 3x3 to 9x9. • Weekly challenge puzzles with online leaderboard. • Post achievements directly to Facebook. • Video tutorial by puzzle master Will Shortz. So… can you KenKen?
4/6/2013Five stars for the game, one star for the programming. It seems to lack fast-app resume, which means every time you let the screen lock or pop out of the app to check a text or whatever it makes you reload the entire app and press Play and select Play Most Recent Game. Also it's got this weird scrolling issue where when you scroll through the list of levels (which places you at the top of the list every time) it half thinks you're trying to select a level when you touch the screen to swipe up, and it makes a clicking sound and makes the list scroll *super* slow. Really poor experience outside the main gameplay.
3/16/2013Good puzzle game
3/12/2013Capcom published a game called kenken and it's not full of shoryukens??? *** is this. Unimpressed
2/21/2013A great game, nice twist on Sudoku. Not worth a $4.99 price tag though. And the personal picture there each time you play is annoying.
2/20/2013Fun game, like a mathy-er Sudoku. BRING THE PRICE DOWN AND MAYBE PEOPLE WILL START PAYING FOR THE VERSION
2/9/2013Would be 5 stars if the annoying pic wasn't there.
1/1/2013Extremely fun and challenging game. Very addictive once you get the hang of it.
