iPhone/iPad App for Number Puzzle

Executive Summary

With a high propensity towards logical games, the client wanted to develop an iPhone/iPad game application for everyone which would be challenging & educational. At the same time there had to be   enough done to make the experience filled with fun.

The game is a logical one  based on number placement puzzle. The objective is to fill a 9×9 grid with numbers(1 to 9) so that each column, each row, and each of the nine 3×3 sub-grids that compose the grid (also called “boxes”, “blocks”, “regions”, or “sub-squares”) contains all of the numbers from 1 to 9. The puzzle setter provides a partially completed grid, which typically has a unique solution. The client was in search of a reliable and efficient software development partner to build the application.

After few quick discussions with Mindfire’s technical team, the client could judge the capability of our unit and awarded the project to us. Mindfire took no time in understanding the objectives of the client and started work immediately. The end result developed was a game in iPhone/iPad  that generated each and every time a unique puzzle . The client was very happy to have received a fully functional app in time without much of involvement with the developers during the development phase.

Business Situation

The client’s intent was to develop a fun puzzle game where users can test their logical and mental skills with time being a limiting factor. Another additional requirement was that there should be no database which would store the puzzle but the application always generates a unique puzzle with a great speed, which was a test for Mindfire’s team as it was something really tough for this mobile platform. Because creating a unique puzzle each time it involved a huge calculation.
