I'm also totally bored by sudoku, but thankfully, despite the misleading icon and the suspiciously similar name, this is a completely different puzzle.
If you are suspicious too, there's also a free version called subaku mini, which contains just the first 10 puzzles.
So tapping the 3 above would give this, and solve the puzzle:
Note that the target isn't always the optimal number. I'm used to being shown what the optimal number of moves is, but I'm beginning to like the idea.
One of the hardest puzzles should be this one.
Additionally to the puzzle mode, there's an endless mode where the goal is to play as long as possible without clearing the board. To make it interesting, random events happen every 5 moves. This game mode is good for casual playing.
One criticism I have is that if you tap the menu button, you are brought to a crowded screen with several unrelated options: return to game / retry / return to menu / previous / next. I think this is a confusing choice and the user interface could be simplified.
But that's a nitpick; the game has original mechanics and is fun to play, so it's easily recommended.
