Spheroku™ - new three dimensional color implementation of sudoku puzzle

...this new game has the potential to engage new people in enjoying the brain workout benefits for which Sudoku is renowned among mental health professionals.

(PRWEB) August 08, 2013

3d Department announced today the development of a new mobile game that combines the logic of Sudoku with a three-dimensional experience reminiscent of the Rubik's cube puzzle. A preview version of the game, under the name Spheroku™, is available online at http://www.spheroku.com. This game opens a radically new chapter in the evolution of the Sudoku puzzle that originated in the USA, was popularized in Japan, and became a worldwide phenomenon in 2006.

By wrapping the Sudoku grid onto a sphere and substituting the nine numbers with nine colors, the player is taken into a 3D world of color. In addition to the logic and observational skills required to solve Sudoku, Spheroku™ forces the player to use movement, spatial coordination, and memory to successfully solve the puzzle. Early indications from the feedback supplied by users of the Spheroku™ pre-release versions suggest that this new game has the potential to engage new people in enjoying the brain workout benefits for which Sudoku is renowned among mental health professionals.

3d Department was founded by Pawel Bodytko, a veteran 3D artist and product designer. He has been closely associated with companies such as Sun & Skin Care Research, LLC; Alva-Amco Pharmacol Companies, Inc.; Fruit of the Earth, Inc.; and others. Over the years, Bodytko has been responsible for design and conceptual work on many well-known suncare brands such as Ocean Potion®, No-Ad®, Jimmy Buffett's Margaritaville® Parrot Head™, Rite-Aid RX Suncare™, and Alva-Amco's pharmaceutical brands such as Psoriasin®, FungiCure®, Diurex®.

He is joined at 3d Department by his daughter Alexandra Bodytko, who in addition to being involved in many other aspects of the game development, composed and produced the musical score used in the game. She is an active musician, often performing at Gloria's Estefan Bongos Cuban Cafe in Downtown Disney World and in Universal Studios in Orlando, Florida as well as other venues. Alexandra Bodytko plays tenor saxophone and holds a BM in Jazz Studies from the University of Central Florida.

The Spheroku™ game has a patent pending.
