FlowDoku is a Windows 8 games app to fill the Sudoku grid with shape tiles. This is a mind-blowing puzzle you will like. The game follows the same rule as the Sudoku. You need to play with the shapes, not with the numbers. All that you have to keep in mind is that each row, column, and box should contain every shape in it. While filling the gaps with shapes you have to remember that you need to create a flow among the shapes. The game has a combination of filling the grids with shapes and creating a flow among the shapes. As FlowDoku game features two main elements of the two famous puzzle games, so it has been named as FlowDoku.
The game provides you four different sizes of boards to choose from. The bigger size you choose; the more difficult game you have to face. Now, the coolest part of the game is that in every board size you will be able to see the flow of the shapes just below the grid. For example, the 8*8 board has squares, triangles and circles in it. You need to chain three squares, two triangles whereas the circles need not to be chained. Now, you have to fill the blank spaces with the shapes such that every row, column, and box has all the shapes provided for the particular game. The app also provides you the facility to track your performance. See the statistics and improve your solving the puzzle ability.
