Has anyone downloaded this? The only difference I see between this and the other Sudoku games is that this one has far less puzzles than the other bazillion titles in the series, but also features 3-D graphics. Just how does that make Sudoku good enough to warrant a 4.99 purchase price?

@grumblegrumble I haven't downloaded this but it would appear it's not just 50 puzzles--it's 50 handcrafted puzzles with endless randomly generated puzzles to boot. So it's actually a lot like Sudoku (EA) for DSiWare in the number of puzzles (which is to say, infinite). The premium is for the 50 handcrafted puzzles and 3d and the only question is how well the interface and difficulty work. So overall the price isn't actually TOO out of line... Assuming he game itself is good quality.
