Cludoku is a puzzle developed by TopAccolades Limited.

It is essentially Sudoku employing letters instead of the traditional numbers 1-9 plus:
  • Clues, similar to those found in crosswords, and
  • Word Search not only the traditional straight-line search but also Boggle-like zig-zag searching.
The basic idea is to:

  • Solve the letter-based Sudoku, so that all cells of the grid have letters in them
  • Try to find solutions to given clues that are formed from the linked letters in the completed grid (linked either horizontally, vertically or diagonally). The same cell must not be used more than once for a given solution.
