In 2011, while I was still in university, I started learning how to develop Android applications as part of my self-learning journey. This was one of the first apps I made in which I also tried to give my personal touch as a game designer, trying to change a little bit of what was already out there. The result of this process was this game, Timed Sudoku. It was also my first experience with Google Play Store (still called Android Market back then) and publishing apps.

Timed Sudoku is a Sudoku game in which you have to play every game with a time limit. If you fail, you don’t have more chances to complete it. This takes the classic Sudoku game to an exciting new level of fun! The games are generated based on the preferences of the player. Depending on the chosen time limit and the chosen difficulty, there will be more or less numbers to fill.


  • Randomly generated Sudokus
  • 4 difficulty levels
  • Countdown
  • Custom games

Feel free to download it from Android Market the Play Store. As of November 2015, 5786 people have downloaded this game.
