Sudoku Variants by Logic Wiz Review

What is Logic Wiz Sudoku app?

Logic Wiz Sudoku is a feature-filled sudoku app for those who love a challenge. It has multiple sudoku variants, five difficulty levels, and loads of features to streamline the solving process.

Working with the puzzles is enhanced beyond pen and paper. Error checking, highlighting and clear note-making are just some of the ways that the app helps the user focus on the challenge, not on their presentation.

What we love about Logic Wiz Sudoku.

Connoisseurs have exacting tastes. Sudoku has its share of devoted fans, and Logic Wiz Sudoku may well be the app they want. Computers can generate sudoku puzzles, but devotees believe handcrafted ones to be more satisfying. Logic Wiz Sudoku contains thousands of them.

Did you know that there are multiple variants of sudoku? There are - each with a unique spin on the thinking required and the type of challenge. Logic Wiz Sudoku has fifteen included variants.

The sudoku content can't be faulted, but what about the solving mechanics? When a  popular pen-and-paper activity makes the jump to a screen, it has to bring with it features that make solvers' lives easier without distracting from the purity of the puzzle.

Fortunately, Logic Wiz Sudoku's developers don't seem like they jumped on sudoku for its popularity but because they love the puzzles. There are far too many quality of-life features to mention, but they are all intuitive to use and genuinely helpful. The app feels polished and designed to remove any annoyances from solving the boards.

It is safe to say that connoisseurs of sudoku will love this app, but what about newcomers to the puzzles, such as kids?

Logic Wiz Sudoku is great for introducing people of all ages to the calm focus of sudoku solving. The app has quests that users can follow. They select a base difficulty level, and the app adapts within that as players improve. It even offers hints when it detects that the player really needs one.

What skills does it improve?

Sudoku shares the benefits of many puzzle types: it encourages perseverance, develops thinking skills, and enhances focus.

What age is it appropriate for?

People of all ages love sudoku. With its design, Logic Wiz Sudoku does not target the kids' market, but its clarity and neutral look will not put any off. If kids are interested in learning to solve sudoku puzzles, you can consider them the right age for this app!

Is Logic Wiz Sudoku easy to use?

The app comes with a helpful user guide, although most of the features are easy to understand just by trying them out.

How will students benefit?

Kids sometimes struggle with problem-solving for reasons other than their ability level. They may lack confidence, be too ready to give up, or not see the point in putting in the effort. Kids who have solved a puzzle that once seemed impossible will grow in confidence, learn that some challenges take time, and feel a sense of achievement. Their schoolwork problems might not be sudoku-based, but these kids won't be so likely to shy away from a challenge.

The note-making required by sudoku can be difficult for some kids. Even able kids might not have tidy enough handwriting to put the small notes needed to track possible answers into the cells. Sudoku apps, such as this, excel at making the puzzles accessible for all, whatever their pen-control skills.

Sudoku puzzles can be unforgiving to newcomers as backtracking to find a mistake is difficult. The app's error reporting is a great safety net for beginners to ensure they don't commit time to a puzzle that an early error has rendered impossible.

How will teachers benefit?

Aside from the many features that streamline the puzzle-solving process, Logic Wiz Sudoku has extra features that teachers can harness for school use. The app lets teachers create their own puzzles, and it can support kids in solving puzzles from other sources.

The app can be mirrored to a class display to form an excellent aid for teachers to show kids how to solve and improve at sudoku. Selecting a cell highlights the rows, columns, and sections it affects to emphasise what kids must consider. Teachers can manually highlight cells to clarify teaching points, and the accessible toggle between adding answers and making 'pencil mark' memory hints helps with modelling strategies.

How will parents benefit?

Logic Wiz Sudoku supports family sharing, so it is an excellent app for a sudoku loving parent to use to pull their kids into their hobby. Aside from getting extra value from the subscription, supporting their kids in developing their solving skills could make an enjoyable shared activity.

What can Logic Wiz Sudoku improve on?

While Logic Wiz Sudoku is a subscription app, it does not offer the usual free trial. Instead, the app is available with ads for free, and the subscriptions remove the ads.

While this is an acceptable, even preferable method for general purpose apps, it isn't an ideal appraisal method from a parent's or teacher's perspective as it exposes kids to third-party advertisements.

Adding a limited-duration free trial that lapses to showing ads if a premium subscription isn't purchased would be a good compromise.

How much does Logic Wiz Sudoku cost?

Logic Wiz Sudoku is free to download. This version contains advertisements that distract from the puzzles and the app's elegance. It also lacks a few features, such as the Jigsaw Sudoku and cloud saves of boards. This is not the definitive version, though, and lets new users try before committing to the app. 

What is included with the free version vs. paid?

The whole app is available for a low subscription price. All subscription durations are good value, but the annual and lifetime ones are the best, especially if you consider the price of a sudoku book or buy a newspaper each day for the puzzles alone.

Is Logic Wiz Sudoku safe to use?

This review of Logic Wiz Sudoku was of the premium version, and this is entirely safe for kids to use. There is no unsuitable content or advertisements in it.

If you choose to use it without a subscription, though, the app does show advertisements provided by a third-party network meaning that the developer does not have complete control over which ads appear in the app. The app also asks permission to track the users' data from other apps to personalise and localise advertisements—you can deny this permission, and the app will remain usable.

Overall rating of the app.

Logic Wiz Sudoku is a complete package for fans of the famous puzzles. If you or your kids enjoy solving sudoku but want a more convenient and feature-rich solving environment than pen and paper, Logic Wiz Sudoku is a great choice.

The decision is a little more complicated for introducing kids to the puzzles or using them in the classroom. It works well for teaching beginners, and its various boards, difficulty levels, and intuitive feature set offer many benefits for teaching and practising sudoku solving.

But whether it is suitable for your kids or classroom can only be answered by you. You'll know whether your kids would respond better to a sudoku app designed specifically for kids, although these typically offer fewer features for teachers and less content. Some kids prefer to feel that they are playing 'grown-up' apps like this one.

Fortunately, the app is easy for you to try before deciding. Download it, solve a few puzzles, and think about how the features help a beginner. Logic Wiz Sudoku is a five-star app.
