“The visuals are gorgeous... typography is stunning... the soundtrack is also tranquil and atmospheric” - AppAdvice

"If you’re after a relaxed but challenging word game, Alpha Omega has you covered fairly nicely.” - 148Apps


Can you solve each crossword puzzle, with only the first and last letters as your guide?

CLUES EVERYWHERE… You are given a clue and a puzzle full of scrambled words. Once you decipher a word, it itself becomes a clue, enabling you to decipher other words…

OVER 1700 LEVELS... After you've graduated from “The Original” level pack - or whenever you're ready - jump right into challenging new premium level packs, each available for a small purchase. More content will be released regularly.

RELAXING GAMEPLAY… No rush here! Take your time to think as a beautiful ambient soundtrack accompanies gameplay. Even access a custom music player to play whatever track you like.

BEAUTIFUL THEMES… Bright colors, seasons, pastels… even a dark theme to play at night! Change the entire look and feel of the game board with custom themes.

Can you solve all levels from Alpha to Omega? Download and find out!



The Unlimited Pass unlocks the entire game. All level packs (current and future), all themes, unlimited hints - and removes all ads. It’s well worth it and we highly recommend you purchase it. The price will only go up as new level packs are released!

Hint packages are available in the app as in-app purchases, but are not required. They simply can help you work your way through more challenging levels, and they also help developers such as us continue to make great games for you :)

Not all words in each puzzle have first and last letters locked in place, but enough are there to get you started!

Thanks for your support!

Great base with potential for wonder

Like brown

So crossword puzzles are not novel, new ones come out monthly it seems or even weekly. How does this one differ? Well it grants initial ‘hints’ by allowing knowledge of the first/last letters- hence the game title. And that part is good and works well. However then you have a closer look at this ‘free’ (uhhuh yea right we all know that’s not true) game and everything else deeper under the first set of levels is an in-app-purchase. And if you’re content with the base package, then you have to deal with the annoying controls and interface. It does a poor job at best of highlighting which letter you have selected, level restart clears all progress even if you have straightened out many words and I’m sure the puzzles get broader, and ‘incompletion of puzzle’ shows up AFTER you’ve spent the time swapping letters randomly in futile attempts.
If the files and rows were fluid and could slide to swap letters and the letters were confined to certain files/rows (or the intersections instead were the known letters) they’d have a much better user friendly game.

Developer Response

Hi there, thanks for your feedback and "potential for wonder" - love it :) The in-app purchases are a simple mechanism to provide you the ability to try out an entire level pack for free, then pay for other premium content. These level packs take quite a bit of time to make. Trust me, the content is worth it when you get the Unlimited Pass. There's over 1,400 levels, unlimited hints, themes, no ads... As far as your feedback about highlighting letters and level restarts clearing progress - in this latest update (4.1.6) if you do have the Unlimited Pass then level progress is now saved for ALL levels - that is, until a level is restarted. This helps especially in difficult levels beyond the Original pack. And about letters and confinement - this is part of the game mechanic itself... letters can only be swapped once, which requires a bit of foresight and planning ahead. Letters are confined to a single row or column - unless that letter sits a row/column intersection. Again, thanks for your feedback - I really do hope you continue to play and give the Unlimited Pass a chance - it's a huge value. And as more level packs are coming in April and beyond, the price of it will likely rise (hint hint).

And I just read a negative review


I just stumbled across the review titled "Kinda fun but poorly executed". Man, what a grouchy-poo! I can't believe someone would be such a grump about a free game. I don't know the developer, but I appreciated his response about returning to a previous screen - GREAT INFO! (I have to admit, I, too, hadn't watched/read the
tutorial on the app to discover that hidden gem. My bad.) Anyway I really enjoy this app, the puzzles make me think hard, and I can testify it's helping me keep my
A-game-brain in tune and ready to use for more important tasks. Thank you, developer, for investing "hundreds of hours" into this app. Please know that there are many of us bopping along in the background LOVING what you've created for us. Because of stumbling across that negative review, I for one, will be better at handing out positive reviews. ♥️♥️♥️

I’m addicted! Great puzzles but challenging!


I enjoyed the introductory pack so much that in spite of telling myself the entire time that I would not purchase the remaining packs, I did it anyway. Uh-oh, my bad. I did not take the time to read the categories closely enough, or just did not realize how many levels there would be in each category. I’m still on “World of Sports” and I have never watched most of the categories of sports that are in that section and I now realize I know NOTHING about most of them. Of course, the hints are there, but if you have never heard the terms before they don’t help much. Plus, it’s no fun to have the answers given to you. But I’m getting there. At least I can say I am learning something new all the time! And I am addicted - I just can’t stop playing regardless of how hard it gets!!
