A Simplified Approach

The Sudoku School app is designed for kids to use and features a simplified approach to the puzzle. It will teach them how to play on both 4x4 and 6x6 puzzle boards. The traditional Sudoku board is a 9x9 one. The way the game board is set up is that it features both numbers and colors to make it easier for kids. The rules of the game are explained both through text instructions as well as drawings. The rules of the game are explained both through text instructions as well as drawings.

The app is free to play and comes with 20 puzzles so you can test it out and see how you like it. From there you can purchase additional puzzles - there are up to 5,000 available. There are two extra puzzle packs available and each one is priced at $0.99. The app has 4.5 out of five stars from users who can't stop raving about how fun and educational it is. It hasn't been updated in over two years but that doesn't seem to be hurting the app.

A Kid-Friendly Approach

Everything about the Sudoku School app feels kid-friendly and engaging. There are 10 different levels of difficulty for kids to work their way through as they feel comfortable. By the time they get to the expert level on the 6x6 board it rivals any regular game of Sudoku. It’s a way of gradually learning the game, building confidence, and having fun. What’s also cool is that because there are so many puzzles available in so many difficulty levels this app has staying power and can remain interesting as kids grow older.

I find the approach of this app to be really fun and it certainly makes the game a lot less intimidating. In fact it can just as easily be used by adults who are beginners themselves.
