hours of thinking fun, but could use an update
toss-ups -extremely plain interface for an iPhone app (can be good if you hate unnecessary flashiness) -no skip/pass option if you're stumped as others have commented (if you need this, you probably shouldn't be playing this anyway). if you reeeeally needed to, you could look up answers to the trivia questions online pros -FREE -hours of fun (a myriad of puzzles--have not had one repeat, but you don't know how many there are because of the bugs (see cons) -amusing puzzle answers -three different types of "kracks"/cheats (trivia ones are best because you learn something new if you didn't know it already) -keyboard clicks are satisfying cons/suggestions -bugs in scoring (after a certain point, the scores, kracks deductions, and number of played games remains the same) -quote attributions, if any for puzzles -more current trivia kracks (most of the trivia is extremely outdated) -cheering noise at the end is highly annoying -letters should be highlighted on the keyboard if they've been used already
Keeps me entertained for a long time
I love this app. It's my favorite "get the brain started" application to date. I've played it so much that the puzzles are recycling. I really would love a new batch of kryptos. I'd like it if you could load different groups of puzzles. They got too easy towards the end because I kept and eye out for "you" and "your" patterns because those two words, while not all that common in the english language in general, appeared in almost every puzzle. Also, I could almost garuntee that any single-letter word was "A" and never "I." If users could download krypto-bundles, I think it could renew the challenge and playability. I'd also like to see the points matter. Otherwise, it was a good solid 20 hours of gameplay for free. Thanks so much!
Great free app
If you like word games, this one is worth every penny. It's hard enough to be interesting and easy enough so that you don't get frustrated. The "Kracks" (hints) are there if you need them. I've completed 65 levels and used five "Kracks".
Couple of problems:
Better proofreading - use of it's vs. its. Use of too vs. to. These little errors cause problems in substitution codes.
Score screen does not correctly update after each game. It only updates after the first game of a "session". In other words, you must exit the game, reenter the game and solve a level to get your current score.
