Q: Great Solitaire roundup! Now can you do the same for Sudoku? There must be 50 versions! My wife won’t upgrade her iPod touch to 2.0 until she is sure there is a Sudoku game she likes as much as the jailbreak version she’s using now. I have no idea how to judge them and the rating/review system on the App Store is now virtually uninterpretable.

A: Actually, Sudoku was the very first iPhone Gems feature that we did back on August 1st. You can find it here: iPhone Gems: Every Sudoku Game, Reviewed. In this article, we briefly cover each of the 23 different Sudoku games available on the iTunes Store, and provide a rating for each.

If you’re simply looking for our top choices, be sure to check out Gameloft’s Platinum Sudoku (iLounge rating: A), Hudson Soft’s Sudoku Vol. 1 (iLounge rating: B+) and Electronic Arts’ Sudoku (iLounge rating: B)—the only three titles to earn a better than C rating.
