Reviews - What do customers think about O'ekaki: Paint By Sudoku?
Fun and challenging Aug 8, 2008
This is great. It's challenging, but worth the effort to learn how to solve these puzzles. I'm having great fun with this book of puzzles.
Good for beginners, not very difficult May 27, 2008
After reading some of the reviews, I decided to purchase this book. Like most people, I am addicted to these pixel puzzles but this book was just way to easy. Almost like a waste of time if you are very experienced. For a beginner, all the puzzles are introductory. For advanced people, I would suggest Paint-doku (Puzzles). This is by far the best and most difficult book that I have tried.
Not my favorite Mar 21, 2008
I love Nintendo's Picross and wanted some paper versions of the grid puzzles for airplanes and for more puzzle variety. I purchased this book along with paint by sudoku, and have to say I prefer the other book. This one isn't bad though, the puzzles are arranged one on a page with cute titles that hint at the final picture, and are rated easy to hard in ascending order. I haven't gotten past moderate level puzzles yet but so far I'm unimpressed with the pictures. The easy puzzles are relaxing and fun to do, but I've had to look up the answers several times just to find out what thing it is that I just drew and make sure I did it correctly.
Good, but not the same Jan 7, 2008
I got this because I fell in love with Paint by Number puzzles in World of Puzzles magazine. This just isn't the same. The puzzles are too large, making it such a chore to fill in all the squares. It's a fun game, though, and at least the puzzles are interesting.
Duplicate gift Nov 1, 2007
I had given this puzzle book to a woman who is an ardent sudoku puzzle worker of hard puzzles. She liked the book. I wanted to give her another book of these puzzles. However, it was the same book. After so many months, I expected a new book would have been published. but no. My fault, I guess and a disappointment.
