Acrostics, or crostics or anacrostics, are a combination crossword puzzle and fill in the quote. Fifty ranked and timed puzzles with 29 more puzzle packs available for purchase for 1500 puzzles total! Another word puzzle in the highly rated Puzzle Baron series.

Your goal is to reveal a hidden quote in a grid by correctly answering crossword-style clues. Each letter in the quote is linked to a letter in one of the clue answers. As you fill in more and more answers, more letters will begin to fill the quote grid, until eventually the entire quote is revealed. You can also do this in reverse. As words of the quote become clear, they will fill in the clue answers!

Every puzzle has a difficulty level and time. When you finish the puzzle, you'll see a graph showing how your time compares to expert puzzlers and the number of hints taken if any. All puzzles have been solved and timed by thousands of players at the popular Puzzle Baron Acrostics web site.

Designed from scratch for fast iPad play, this app allows you to concentrate on solving the puzzle and makes solving much easier than with paper and pencil. The result is pure puzzle solving fun with no ads or distractions!

Advanced play features include automatic grid updating and indexing, see related cells, multi-level undo, remove errors and hints. Three difficulty levels will challenge beginners and seasoned players alike. Share the results with your puzzling friends with a single tap via email, Facebook or Twitter.

Twenty-nine more puzzle packs, each with 50 puzzles with a mix of difficulties are available for purchase inside the app. These will provide HOURS and HOURS of fun!

If you like word games, crosswords or cryptograms, acrostics are a fun way to exercise your brain!

Customer Reviews

Love these puzzles!

I love this app and love the puzzles. I go into withdrawal when I finish them all and can't wait for new volumes to be published. Only thing that could be improved is offering a few harder puzzles.
