puzzle.tv has built up a seven-year history of expertise second-to-none in providing high-quality word and number puzzles in game formats for a variety of platforms.

The company, a sister to Supersonic Software, pioneered the first word puzzle game approved for use on Sony’s consoles (PS2 and PSP) called Puzzle Challenges and More.  This was quickly followed up with hugely successful sudoku products, including top-selling Infinite Sudoku and Carol Vorderman’s Sudoku.

Having quickly established a high reputation in the fast-growing casual games market, puzzle.tv has in 2008 made further inroads into the ‘edutainment’ sector with a spelling game for Nintendo DS and PlayStation PSP published in the USA and in Europe.

puzzle.tv has good working relationships with localization companies to provide quality content across Europe and beyond.  Our new spelling games work in 6 languages:  English, American/English, French, Italian, German and Spanish.  Our sudoku products were published additionally in Holland, Russia, Singapore and Australia. For our all our products, we have successfully researched and tailored content to suit the slightly different needs of American puzzlers.

puzzle.tv is unusual – probably unique - in being a games developer which is trusted to supply puzzles to a number of respected nationally-distributed print publications.

With the inclusion on its staff of a specialist editorial team, and the richness of its extensive databases of puzzles and words, puzzle.tv is perfectly poised to go forward to meet the growing public demand for casual gaming which offers fun and self-improvement simultaneously.

We develop on all major gaming platforms including Nintendo DS and WII, PlayStation2, PlayStation Portable, Microsoft Xbox 360, and PC (boxed product and online product).   Recent products include Spelling Challenges and More published successfully in the US with Crave Games in early 2008, and in Europe with 505 under the name Spellbound (September 2008).
We also developed the highly regarded Infinite Sudoku series with UK company Focus Multimedia, and Carol Vorderman’s Sudoku with Empire Interactive.  For US publisher Crave we developed the first word puzzle game approved for use on Sony’s consoles (PS2 and PSP), and with Global Star a Game Boy Advance Sudoku themed product.
