Sudoku is a brilliant puzzle game which is quite simple but you need to think logically to complete the puzzle. In case you didn’t know, let me tell you – the aim of the puzzle is to fill up the 9×9 box with numbers from 1 to 9.
However, the only condition is – every row/column should have unique numbers (without repeating the same number in a row/column). Also, the 3×3 sections you see inside should also contain unique numbers as well.
It might sound very simple, but you need to train your brain to do that quickly, you can’t spend a day on a single puzzle, right? So, you don’t need a paper to enjoy the puzzle, you can simply install one of the best sudoku apps available for Android and get going!

8. Classic Sudoku Premium (Paid)
If you want a clean Sudoku experience without the annoying ads while staying connected to the Internet, this is what I would recommend.
Of course, you will have to purchase this app for 150 INR (which converts to approximately 2 USD). It supports three different types of board layouts and it also supports the auto-save feature when you exit the app accidentally.
This may not be everyone’s favorite. But, if you want an ad-free clean experience, this is a highly rated app for a specific group of users.
9. Sudoku Epic
Sudoku Epic is yet another interesting take on the Sudoku game for Android devices. Here, along with Sudoku you also get a mix of Kakuro (which is something similar that deals with letters, instead of numbers).
Of course, if you don’t want to play with the letters, you don’t need this. However, if you want to challenge yourself with something more than just numbers, you can give this a try.
