Description

This game is a tribute to the classic math puzzle game called CrossSums. Long before the popularity of Kakuro puzzles, people have been turning to puzzles like CrossSums as a way to keep their minds sharp as they age.

This full version contains 5 levels of challenging puzzles with increasing difficulty. The level 5 puzzles are extremely challenging for advanced puzzle solving fun.

A LITE/FREE version is also available and a great way to try out the challenge of level 1 puzzles. Level 1 puzzles have no more than 3 in a row and are designed for the beginner to get the hang of the strategies required to solve the puzzles.

This game provides a never ending supply of CrossSums puzzles because each puzzle is randomly generated on the fly.

This game has the following features:

* 50+ puzzle grids from novice to expert

* Dynamically generated endless puzzle possibilities

* Timer to keep track of the fastest solutions to each puzzle.

* Hints available to give a starting point on difficult puzzles

* Auto-complete for faster game play by automatically completing rows or columns where only one box remains empty.

* Highlight errors allows the game to show rows or columns with incorrect values.

It's a Deleter

:
Unfortunately, the random generation concept doesn't work. It creates puzzles which have no easy path to solution, like the puzzles you get in magazines. I wish this weren't the case because I love these puzzles. I couldn't solve a single one in this app, even on the easy level.

5/5 stars

Clean, intuitive design. Great game!

Disappointing

:
Wavered between rating 1 or 2 stars but at least it's SOME kind of cross sums app. Vir4030 is spot-on in his review: There are no easily solved lines within the puzzles to get you started, which makes most of the puzzles unplayable unless you're Will Shortz. I seldom spend $$ on any app without carefully checking out reviews and ratings and this app reminds me why. I was so excited to find a cross sums game that I pounced on it. Big mistake. Screenshots above are deceptive; most of the puzzles appear to be small sections of a cross sums board, not the larger puzzles they show in the shots. Could be excellent if the boards were larger and there were a few solvable lines in the grid. It has the right idea for a cross sums app, it's just very poorly executed. This is one of those puzzle games that make me scream "Oh, when is Dell finally going to start producing apps?!?"
