Anannya Sen’s Review

Review Date: 24/8/09

A puzzle for every day of the year.


365 Puzzle Club does exactly what it says on the tin. Not that there are 365 puzzles mind you, but you can play a puzzle for every day of the year. There are 3 main puzzles to play, Sudoku, Kakuro and Tempenki. Now Sudoku you should all know by now. Kakuro, which is my personal favourite is basically like doing a crossword puzzle with numbers. The numbers add up horizontally and vertically (one way only) to give you a total which is given. You have to guess which numbers go where, and like Sudoku, you can have two of the same number in the same row. Tempenki is a game we have played before on MGFS, but we called it PicoPix back then. You can read our review of it here. It's a game where you have to fill in blank spaces in a grid and you're told how many spaces in a row should be filled in from the vertical and horizontal axis. The filled in spaces should make a picture, but the pics are usually too small to make any sense.

With the calendar mode every day you get to play a different one of these 3 games. The calendar selects what game you play and you pick the difficulty. Sudoku on beginner is very easy, you only have a grid of 1-6. Same with Kakuro and Tempenki, the easy levels are pretty quick to finish. In addition to playing the game, there are some achievements to unlock, like finishing the tutorial mode, solving a puzzle in under 30 seconds, solving 5 Kakuro puzzles etc.

Then there's the seasons mode where you play a variety of the games on a strange type of grid. The objective is to get to the middle of the grid and once you do you play a random game and you've finished the season. Finishing the season unlocks some variation mini games of the main 3, for you to play on quick play. As the seasons progress, the games get a lot tougher. And of course there's quick play itself where you can play any games you've unlocked. There's even a chat mode where you can apparently chat to people online. We didn't have time to test this feature out.

The graphics and sound are fairly basic but what you'd expect for a game like this. The fun is in the variety. If you don't like Sudoku, which I don't care too much for, there is always Kakuro or Tempenki. You're bound to like one of the three and if you don't then these sorts of puzzle games aren't for you. If you do, and you like a bit of variety, this is well worth checking out. Now, I've got a Sudoku grid I'm in the middle of!
