Does anyone know of a 2x2 sudoku game WITH images?

I've struck zero in finding a Link to a sudoku game that actually uses images for numbers, even images OF numbers. Yes, I'd prefer the game in JavaScript. Every site I've been too, (hundreds) uses CSS and HTML and NOT images. I've only found 1 site that uses images, and their source code is NOT available for viewing, at all. I can't even find that site anymore. I do mean that the game itself uses images in solving the problem. I do not mean, and game with a prize of an image coming up after you've solved it. One Australian sites uses an image picture as a prize for solving it. However, I've not been able to convert their code to images.
Thanks in Advance! ps. I can't wait until JavaScript finally starts making sense to me. :>)

(Moderators, posted this here, because no one in the JS forum knows of a game WITH images. And, because Sudoku is so popular, I decided to grasp at straws and throw this question out to the community, as I'm not asking for someone to encode it for me.)

A 2x2 sudoku? That would be too easy.

The game would be for my nephew, who is 4. I'm still too new to Javascript to figure out the coding myself, but I'm working on trying to convert a 3x3 with images to a 2x2.

By 2x2 are you talking about 36 cells? or 4 cells?

I have an algorithm to make a simple sudoku in VBA, all you'd have to do is convert it to javascript and map the numbers to images.

I think he means 4 squares of four cells each (Unless his nephew is in Mensa already)....I have occasionaly seen these ploating around, but in kids sections (best part of the paper) of newspapers more than online....

You said that hundreds of sites that you've been to uses html and css but not images. But that doesn't make sense since you can't actually program anything with just images.

Also, you can take any algorithm that they use to create a sudoku and map it appropriately to images. There's no need to find code that specifically uses images. And I would guess that any code that does use images goes through the same process of using numbers but linking them to images anyways.

Take a look at:http://www.w-sudoku.com/

There is an image-base Java sudoku there to download for free but it has a annoying error in it that I haven't worked out how to eradicate yet.

Once I've fixed it, I will post back and let you knw.

Love the username. Now you just have to figure out an avatar to go along with it <grin>

There used to be a great DOS game called sherlock.exe, which is a pictorial version of Suduko...sorta...it was more like a image based logic puzzle where the red house is next to the green house and mr. jones lives next door to ms. smith, etc.

I remember I even changed the graphics on it to match up to their pets, among other things...

I think this is a link to it...

I know this is way old, but obviously, I lost the link to this thread - probably a laptop died. lol I should use google more often. ;)

The code itself is not in images. The sudoku game uses images. I'd still be interested in a 2x2 game even though my nephew has graduated to 2x3 sudokus. And, the w-sudoku.com game I do use on my site. :D The only issue I've ever had with the game is that it uses dynamic image sizing which makes it next to impossible to make a logo that works in on the game page without the image looking badly deformed. I think he found and fixed the bug that he had. I vaguely remember a bug, but that doesn't exist anymore, as my version works very very well.

Here's the link to my game made by the wonderful wsdk. I still love his game, as it was the first free sudoku code I found. I only gave a direct link to one of the versions on my site.

The sherlock game is cool. I finally checked it out. But, I need the code and need the code to be free and not shareware. Javascript prefered, as that is themeable. Java I'm not ready for yet. lol

In reply to Rabbit - I shall try to rewrite the 3x3 sudoku code I have to make it 2x2. I'm a newbie to writing JavaScript code. :D I'm going to compare the 3x3 to the 2x3 code and see what I can figure out. Don't expect any results until later 2010, as it will take me that long to figure it out. ;)

2x3 sudoku I can not alter use to learn with, because some of the code is encrypted and I can't be bothered with trying to find a way to unencrypt it. However, the 3x3 sudoku code is beginning to make a little sense. I'm finished with this thread though. However, if I do figure out how to make a 2x2 sudoku using JS, then I'll post it in the JS forum. ;) (You'll have a years wait at least.)
