Challenge your friends in the fun strategic word game that combines classic crosswords with the spirit of friendly competition! In Crossly™, two players race to fill the board, earning one point per letter and stealing points from their opponents along the way. Clean design, fluid animations and playful messaging work together to make this the best crosswords experience in the App Store.

- Endless Gameplay: Crossly pulls from tens of thousands of clues to generate unique crossword puzzles on the fly for optimal replay value. No two boards are ever alike!

- Steal & Taunt: When you or your opponent miss a word, the other player may choose to steal for an extra turn and the chance to send a personalized photo Taunt. (In the interest of privacy, Taunts may only be sent between Game Center friends.)

- Peeks: For hard-to-guess clues, you may use one Peek per turn to reveal a letter of your choice. That letter is only visible to the player who initiates the Peek. Bonus Peeks are awarded for completing games and Peek Packs may be acquired via In-App Purchase.

- Penciling: Penciling allows you to work on the board at any time, changing answers and adjusting your strategy as more words are completed. All penciled words are saved, even when your network connection is offline.

- Accessibility: Apple’s VoiceOver technology is fully integrated into every aspect of gameplay, making Crossly one of the most robust crossword experiences for word gamers with visual disabilities.

- Premium Mode: Play unlimited games for free, or unlock Premium Mode for an ad-free experience, +15 bonus Peeks, and colorful themes. Show your love by choosing your own price to upgrade!

Not terrible but

David Sharp

The game itself is well made and fun, but let down by 1) a strong US bias in the clues (3 letter, begins with T, "roofing material: UK answer would be tar, but apparently "tin" is the correct answer) and 2) generally poor knowledge by the clue writers (three letters, "cow chow": the answer could only be grass or cud... But the given answer was "hay". But cows don't eat hay, horses eat hay).

I will wait for the next update to see if the makers improve the content and if not, I will remove this app.

Shame about the content given the quality of the game itself.

Great but


Would be better for UK with less americanised clues. Also games needs a quit and restart to updates the game after turns. Also a loading issue on startup at the moment. Facebook integration needed. Have already paid for it though as it is good and will no doubt improve.

Awesome, but...


This game is really good, I already paid for it! Really good way to kill time. However, I think that Facebook integration should be added, as well as a sort of reward system and more themes for premium. But other than that, really good!
