511454Self described as a Sudoku challenger, Hidato [App Store] is a number puzzler that requires you to fill in the sequence of numbers across a partially filled board. Numbers must be connected either side-by-side or diagonally in sequence, and there is only one solution per board.

The gameplay seem simple but seems to fulfill a similar sort of immersive satisfaction as a game like PathPix. The developers are also offering a good sampling of 10 puzzles for free in a Lite verison [App Store] that should give you a good taste of the game. The full version of the game contains 100 boards.

The game is very well made and is worth a try for those interested in these types of puzzle games.

    Just tried the Lite version, and it's great. Very addictive, nice looking, definitely going for the paid version.

    Three puzzles fit this category.

    Hidato, Numbrix and 1 to 25.

    Hidato is the most polished in terms of looks.( new Puzzle)

    1 to 25 is the better puzzle by far. (new Puzzle)

    Numbrix is just OK as a puzzle. The app it self is a disaster! Even though it has been on sale the longest. ( more than 6 months)

    Thanks for pointing out 1 to 25. I agree very clever concept.

    Hidato is a great puzzle and I really like it. I am worried about the fact that the updates (additional games) look like they are going to be an in App purchase?

    Numbrix was alone for so long these two new puzzles and the fact that they released a lite version that has the same issues as the paid version will surely hurt this puzzle. The removal of allowing numbers to be placed vertical really makes Numbrix too easy.

    I like these types of puzzles. Simple to play. A few rules to learn. I am always on the look out for them. Hidato is a nice addition!
