Sudoku Portable allows you to carry around a Sudoku game in a USB drive and play it on any computer. Sudoku is a Japanese game involving a three-by-three square of three-by-three squares, and the objective is to be able to number each line from one to nine without having a repeated number in any diagonal, vertical or horizontal line.

The game's difficulty depends on the preset numbers that fill each of the Sudoku squares already. The blank squares leave the user with the numerical, sequential and ordering puzzle to solve. Sudoku Portable offers the same exciting and fun experience of Sudoku at your fingertips.

Regarding the game itself, it comes with a a few simply designed grids and four difficulty levels. The difficulty levels are easy, medium, hard and impossible. The game will also conveniently save your progress between program launches.

Clicking a square and selecting a number in the given range will allow you to fill out that square; however, you cannot put temporary numbers while you are deliberating.

If you find that the game is too hard at any point, Sudoku Portable has in-game features to help make your experience less of a tedious struggle and more entertaining. You can enable a checking system which will tell you when you are about to put a repeat number into a square. If you have absolutely no idea what to do, there is also a "Solve" function. This function will make any corrections to your existing numbers and fill in the rest of the blank squares to reveal the solution to you. This function is especially useful if you are a beginner and if you are trying to get the gist of what a solved puzzle might look like so you can perform better in later games.
