Picture Sudoku is a Sudoku game where the cells are filled with pictures instead of numbers or other well known symbols. In this particular game the pictures are either head and shoulder shots of the Bolton Wanderers Football team or their shirts.

The game is played as a normal game of sudoku, above the puzzle grid are nine pictures with the first picture being number one and the last being number nine, the player clicks on a picture to select it and then clicks on the cell into which they wish to place it.

The game has many features including a child's game which is the same as the 'real game' but the 'Warn if I make a bad move' feature is enabled by default; players can also import their own picture into the game, play the game with their favourite nine players, save/load games etc. When playing the game sound clips from Jack Dearden's match commentaries can optionally be heard, thus the player hears comments such as "A good ball into feet" and "N'Gotty with a crunching tackle" when cells are filled correctly or "My grandma could've scored that" when a mistake is made.
Other features include a hint button, fill in the next cell, auto solve, and eleven levels of difficulty

The game comes with a CD key, before the player can play the game they are required to complete a registration form and phone/email this to Walkthrough Publications who then supply an activation code which allows the game to be played.
