Current Development Activities

I am currently working on adding additional puzzle types to Planet Sudoku.  The first one I am working on is Sudoku 25x25.  The board size is the largest I will be implementing into the system.  The board is so large that I am thinking about also adding the ability for the system to automatically resize the board.  However, if I do this then it might be harder for some people to see the actual hints within the board.  I will keep you posted on my progress.  Until then, please keep playing PlanetSudoku.com and provide me any feedback you may have.

Thanks,
Ivan

New Scoring Feature Introduced

I have built in the ability for scoring the Sudoku puzzle while playing at PlanetSudoku.com.  This new feature will allow me to create leadership boards and show you statistics of your progress.  The scoring is mostly based on your accuracy and if you had to use any helpers to finish the puzzle.  Check it out, and email me if you have additional suggestions.

When playing the system will add points for correct pencil entries, and remove points when you enter a pencil incorrectly or remove it all together.  The system will not dock you for writing notes (multiple numbers within one cell).

Once the puzzle is complete, you have the ability to get score multipliers such as not using any helpers or finishing the board quickly.

Have fun playing!
