Skinz Sudoku is a Sudoku with undo/redo function and customized skins.

It was presented at the GBAX 2007 Coding Competition.

User guide

Just launch a game of the desired level, click on a tile, and write the desired number using the stylus. You can undo/redo a few thousand times if needed.

Custom skin

The system uses skin PAFS since the last version.

Put your .png file (the only format supported) in the folder 'Skins', run PAFS.bat. It is a limited to 1MB for total skins.

Beware it replaces the default skins, so if you use this system you will lose the default skins.


Control with Stylus.

Select - change skin


Update June 11, 2007

  • Optimizations on the memory used and the loading rate
  • New generation code sudokus, symmetrical. Untested, it works, is slower than the old code (basically it takes the time we had won on loading)
  • New skins format (the same as before but with two more lines to support the new buttons)
  • Undo / Redo, on 2048 levels
  • Reorganization of code just to make cleaner
  • Implementation of the statistical system and backup, but not functional here. *Confirmation when you leave
  • Highlighted lines on the top screen for readability (fucked up on emus)
  • Improved recognition of certain figures for many people

Update April 28, 2007

  • New default skins by DayDream. Eventually, there will be 4, a level of difficulty
  • Adding a Naruto skin to test the skinning system, nothing special
  • Level completed correctly recognized as a new sudoku directly Recovery
  • The eight were added to MasterDjé Language
  • Adding the delete button... more convenient to erase everything, right?

Update April 29, 2007

  • Added splash screen Mollusk Games / SpriteAttack (daydream)
  • Update the title screen, I forgot to include the last time
  • 2 new skins DayDream, bringing the total to 4 (most naruto). Allows for a skin / level of difficulty!
  • Support from the break, with start, pause button, or by closing the DS (not tested). When it pauses to hide the numbers do not cheat
