NTN Buzztime, an Interactive TV games company, has launched an ITV Sudoku game on the Bell ExpressVu satellite service.

Buzztime's ITV version of the number-based puzzle game lets viewers use their regular TV remote control (the goal of the game is to fill in a square grid in such a way that each row and each column contains all the digits 1 though 9), to keep track of their personal game results, and to be eligible for prizes by registering their scores online.

Viewers access the game by tuning to Bell ExpressVu's Game Galaxy, and can then personalize it by selecting from different game backgrounds. Three different game formats--each with a different play strategy--are available, and players can select between levels of difficulty.

According to Buzztime, thousands of individual Sudoku games are offered on the service, in order to ensure that play is unique each time. Players who complete the puzzles in the shortest amount of time will receive monthly prizes.

"Subscribers to ExpressVu Satellite TV can now play many different versions of Sudoku in a fun, interactive format, without having to leave the comfort of their sofa," Tyrone Lam, president of NTN Buzztime's cable and satellite interactive TV games subsidiary, Buzztime Entertainment, said in a prepared statement. "This is another example of our objective to produce the most popular games for the ITV platform under the increasingly popular Buzztime brand."
