  • A fascinating game, expertly implemented Aug 31, 2018

    By NSException
    I’ve been a fan of logic puzzles for most of my life, but I’d never heard of kakuro until recently. After trying it once I was an instant fan. Don’t let the math intimidate you: this is a direct relative of sudoku. Apart from the fairly simple sums, kakuro follows the same basic sudoku-style formula. You establish possibilities and then eliminate the impossibilities. This isn’t the only implementation of Kakuro out there, but it may be the best. Real Kakuro provides a beautiful, functional interface that doesn’t get in the way of the game itself. It offers optional guidance to completely eliminate the need to solve the addition problems, but this is easily disabled. In short, it’s simple, it’s fun, it’s great.

    Always loved these puzzles. I have been doing them with pen and paper since I was a child. This is the first Kakuro app, and I love it. I find it extremely relaxing. I have completed all puzzles in the Easy, Medium, Hard and Challenging. I'm up to number 41 in the extreme category.

  • Update needed!! Aug 27, 2018

    By TerryB54
    I am having a great deal of problems with the app since the last Apple IOS update. I have had a few issues with the two updates prior to this, but it is horrible this time. A majority of the time when I complete a puzzle it kicks me out of the app. When it doesn’t, it shows me the ad, then allows me to open a new puzzle, but will not let me play until it kicks me back out or I close it and open it back up. Finally, two times now, I have had it go to the ad then instead of closing it, get a black screen with the Google ad in the top inch and black screen for the rest and it does not do anything. I cannot play at all right now, even closing it down and going back in is not resetting it!!

    Great mental stimulus: Speeds up mental arithmetic. Enhances analytical skills. Have solved nearly all the Easy, Medium & Hard Kakuros and am now on the Challenging ones (given up on a few). The App is well designed with a good tutorial. The "Cheat Sheet" facility is a useful tool when completely stuck. The graphics are relaxing and not garish and are pleasant to view over long periods of time. In conclusion: A well constructed and presented App which is well worth trying! 4.95/5.

  • Starting on my 2nd time through! Jan 22, 2020

    By RamForJesus
    Love Kakuro! Used to play this years ago in Games magazine before it went overseas and got renamed. Finished all the levels and have started my 2nd time through the game. This is a well done app and the games are appropriate for each level. The only issue I’ve run into, is that if I play too long without restarting the app, it will suddenly go back to the main screen and appear to have lost all progress on all levels. If I close and restart, everything is fine, but it was heart stopping the first few times it happened. Anyway, I highly recommend this game (and any others from “Real”.) Thanks for the awesome game, guys!!

    Dev Needs to move back button away from number buttons. Current button there should be re-mapped to "undo" functionality. UI is often twitchy and unresponsive. This could be great but currently there are several better alternatives

    I really enjoy Kakuro on paper, and this app is just as good. I love that I can "write" in pencil the possible solutions, and change it to pen when I'm sure I have the right value!

    Different difficulty levels and lots of puzzles. Great app but I wish it were easier to do trial and error. For example, two different colors, black for the real numbers and green for trial numbers. Still it's a great app and lots of fun.

  • Fun game, buggy May 24, 2016

    By JohnJohnGoose
    Kakuro is fun and this is a pretty good app for it, but whenever you click a banner notification, receive a phone call, or get a pop-up notification (low battery, calendar, etc), the app's display becomes unresponsive and you have to hit the home button to goto your home screen and then double-click the home button to select Real Kakuro again to make it un-freeze. Annoying if you frequently get phone calls or calendar notifications or if you want to see what the banner notification is trying to tell you (new email, etc).

  • Formatting Please Dec 17, 2018

    By Herc the Dog
    What a great game and a great app! There are many, many hours worth of fun here. My only complaint is that the board and number grid are so small on the iPhone X. It’s unnecessarily difficult to make selections. With some simple formatting changes, or better yet formatting options, it could be much easier to read and make selections. I’ve also run across numerous puzzles that seem to have multiple solutions or where logic can get you only so far, after which guessing is required. These kinds of puzzle are no longer logic puzzles.

    Lots of puzzles and easy to use. It would be nice if it had an undo option. It would also be nice if when you make a number that it removed the pencil marks from the corresponding boxes. Overall a fun game.
  • Nice, but the ads and glitches May 24, 2016

    By BernalTemple
    This is a good kakuro game. Beautiful graphics, solid game mechanics, a large variety of challenging puzzles...but. The ads are rampant. The show any time you open the app (standard), but also any time you bring the app from background, even if it was only for a moment to check the time or another app. And those ads case the app to break down. Freezes, graphic glitches and so on. If they want me to pay to get rid of the ads, this is the way to NOT get me to do so.

    Love this game, one of my favorites. Only 3 stars because lately, not every time, after sitting through the add and the "X" appears, you click on it to return to the game but are still sent to the play store to install an app you do not want and just indicated you do not want. Then when you exit the store and tap on the game app it sends you right back to the store! It just happened 3 times in a row. I am just about ready to uninstall, the irritation is about to exceed the enjoyment!

  • Great game but... Sep 7, 2018

    By Sunrize222
    This is a great game, no doubt about it. It makes you think and use different parts of your brain than you normally use. It’s well laid out and has an attractive face. The reason I gave it 3 stars is the ads. I get that you want to make money but please tone down the ads and have a way to mute them. I have to turn the sound off on my iPad or the ads blare everyone around me. Most games allow you to mute the sound. A few less video ads would be really appreciated.
