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

 100+ P: 785 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.) Feb 16 '07 #1

 Expert 2.5K+ P: 3,652 A 2x2 sudoku? That would be too easy. Feb 16 '07 #2

 100+ P: 785 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. Mar 5 '07 #3

 Expert Mod 10K+ P: 12,430 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. Mar 5 '07 #4

 100+ P: 1,806 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.... Mar 5 '07 #5

 Expert Mod 10K+ P: 12,430 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.

 P: 1 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. Apr 26 '07 #7

 P: 1 Hello, I am the w-sudoky programmer. Please inform for the error and I will fix it. Thanks Oct 6 '07 #9

 100+ P: 140 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... http://www.free-games-net.com/games/sherlock.shtml Sitko. Oct 8 '07 #10
