How Sudo Crabs Work

The goal is to complete unique columns, rows and blocks. Unique means using all numbers from 1 to 9 in any order with no repeats. The game starts by providing you with a random number between 1 and 9. You select a column and drop the number in the bottom of the column. It is your choice what you want to build, a column, row or 3x3 block. If you manage to complete a unique row or block, the numbers shiver and gets destroyed. Any numbers on top of the row or block drops down. You cannot place the same number next to or on top of each other. If this happens due to a row or block being destroyed these numbers also gets destroyed. This comes in very handy if you need to unblock yourself. When completing a unique column, you get a Gobble that you can drop on a number to gobble up that number. The game starts off easy and increases in difficulty as you progress. When you complete a column, a row and a block you receive a coin. Coins can be used to buy Undo's, Gobbles or Recycles (to get a different number). As you play the game inform you of your rank on the Global Leaderboard. The game is easy to learn and hard to stop playing.
