Sudo-Kill

Sudoku and FPS all in one

There have been hundreds of first person shooters and most of them consist of running around, killing things. In Sudo-Kill, the floor of the playing field is a Sudoku grid. You have to "shoot" the floor with your number gun, filling in the correct numbers while zombies, CPAs, mathematicians, professors, tax accountants, auditors and other horrible numerically oriented monsters attack you.

It's run, dodge, shoot kill and solve. Can you concentrate on isolating those pesky grid figures and keep the IRS Court Judge Boss monster busy, at the same time? If you can, you win! The door to the next level opens and, it's another @#$#'d Sudoku puzzle with bigger monsters!

What fun!

       I thought this would be a combined version of the linux/unix command sudo with the command kill (or killall).

       Yes. A daemon which kills off the process when a SU command is executed, or a program with SUDO attributes get launched.

       Awesome! (Thanks for leaving off Actuary, by the way; guess they are peaceful folk)

       Would work especially well if shooting varying numbers from 1 to 9 had differing effects on the monsters. Prehaps shooting a monster, standing in a given cell, with the correct number for that cell would be more effective?

       Completing a row/column/3x3 block zaps all the monsters in that row/column/block.

       Zombies? Did you mean vampires?
They were sometimes supposed to suffer from arithmomania; so to escape them you'd spill some seed for them to count - like the Count in sesame street : ONE, Ah-ah-arr, TWO, Ah-ah-arr, THREE, Ah-ah-arr...
