Avanquest Software, a leading global developer of professional and consumer software, has launched the first in a series of mobile game apps - Football Sudoku 2010 - in time for the World Cup. Available for iPhone, iPad and Android platforms, Football Sudoku 2010 combines traditional grid-based puzzle game play with a World Cup theme.


Download Football Sudoku 2010 for FREE: On 3rd June only, people are invited to download the game for free.


Players choose one of the 32 national teams that qualified for this summer’s tournament and who will soon be travelling to South Africa. The Sudoku puzzle is then customised with that team’s name and kit, allowing England supporters to don the legendary white strip as they enjoy three game modes:

  • Relax mode: playing without pressure, the game can be paused and resumed at the player’s leisure
  • Arcade mode: playing to the whistle, gamers must complete the puzzle within a time limit
  • Challenge mode: competing against online opponents from around the world, app users can influence their team’s world ranking with their performance


There are three difficulty levels to choose from (easy, medium and hard) as designed by the unique puzzle generator. Players can also challenge other players around the world each day with a new puzzle and a new chance to be world champion. At the end of the game, players receive customised statistics for analysis of their performance.


Manuel Coelho, Director of edutainment and games at Avanquest Software said, “There are millions of Sudoku fans and Football players around the world and with the FIFA World Cup now coming into focus, we want our customers to get more out of mobile entertainment. We’re excited to develop this first of many mobile applications that will be available for the most popular mobile device platforms.”


Football Sudoku 2010 costs £0.59 across the iPhone and Android platforms and £1.79 for the iPad. The game is available from the iPhone App Store and Android Market.
