A crossword is a word puzzle that normally takes the form of a square or a rectangular grid of white and black shaded squares. The goal is to fill the white squares with letters, forming words or phrases, by solving clues that lead to the answers. In languages that are written left-to-right, the answer words and phrases are placed in the grid from left to right and from top to bottom. The shaded squares are used to separate the words or phrases.

Don’t like the new update

I absolutely loved the old lay out and how it was. The new update is actually horrible. I don’t like the layout or the way the puzzles look now as it is hard to concentrate on and looks like every other word puzzle out there. I loved this app because it wasn’t like the others and didn’t seem as square and blocky. The new update seems very in the face and flashy. I preferred more classy setting and wish I could go back to the old update

Developer Response ,

Hi Tailz52, thanks for your feedback! In the latest update, we introduced support for Color Schemes. You can customize the game according to your personal choices in the Settings Menu, which is accessible via the “Menu” button (bottom-left button next to the keyboard). Have a great day!

Frequent Ads

The crosswords are good but the ads are too frequent and ruin the enjoyment. Ads after completing a game are expected but several times during a game are frustrating

Good challenge

Good level of challenge for the casual user. Clues neat once you get to the answer. Thanks.
