Sudoku widgets updated

I  have just updated the sudoku widgets with a timer that was lacking before. This new feature is available in the three versions (English, Spanish and French).

The controversial Hadopi Law is striking again

For those who have not heard of the Hadopi Law:

You should read this interesting article to know the reason why this law is dividing artists and driving internet users crazy in France.
Actually, the buzz has starded to grow since the dismissal of an executive at the French media Group TF1. Internet users consider him to be the first victim of this controversial law.

Sudoku Game in Java

Last year, I made a sudoku game in java but I realized that it could not work with Windows Machines. You can take a look at it but you must have a MacIntel or PPC Mac.
Java is supposed to be platform independant but you know... You might encounter problems with fonts and bad interactivity with the mouse if you use Windows Machines.

Currently, I am trying to convert this game in Flash But I am rather a novice in ActionScript.
The nice thing is you can play online with the mouse instead of entering numbers with the keypad.

A Flash Sudoku game would bring : Fast loading, compatibility with all platforms, better interactivity and graphics. I even tried JavaFx but I think is still to slow to load. I know people are quite impatient to play games. I will mainly use Beginning Flash Game Programming for Dummies which is a good book for beginners.  For your information, I used a Mac Computer and Javascript to program all the games you can play on this website. The C++ language was used to program the Sudoku Algorithm.  So stay tuned...

Evil level operational

I have just completed the evil level so you may play more challenging puzzles. The difficulty is now more progressive. There is even room for an ultra level but I will check if it is really necessary. I do not want players to be too frustrated. Enjoy !
