SOME IMPORTANT NOTES…
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!

Ratings and Reviews
Certainly unique among the word game universe
I find this game fun and challenging. it’s definitely a mental workout sometimes and sometimes the hints are absolutely necessary especially when the terms are words one never heard of. But just a few hints here and there isn’t “cheating;” it just simplifies an otherwise too difficult puzzle and restores the fun factor.
The game incorporates relaxing music and I find this to be a highlight of the overall experience, for the gentle music definitely helps me to relax. I do hope that further versions of the game add more tracks of music as I would enjoy more of this kind of “zen” experience.
A few things to change: 1. The white “title bar” at the top of the screen is way too big and takes up valuable screen work space. The same information could be stated in just a small corner or narrow band. 2. A little more artistry of the themes would be nice, like subtle pictures in the background and not just solid pastel colors. 3. Maybe more flexibility with the undo function, enabling the player to move letters around when “stuck” would be a good feature. Only two “shots” then you start over is kinda stiff punishment.
Finally... there is no such dessert as sherbert! This is unforgivable.
Thanks for a great game.
Very fun, challenging game!
I also have to say - ignore the naysayers! It’s unique and very satisfying to play. After I played for a few levels, I happily paid a couple bucks to get rid of the ads and that was completely worth it for the gameplay, having more hints, and supporting a puzzle game that’s not another run-of-the-mill crossword.
The levels range from easy to very challenging, and I like that the harder levels aren’t dumbed down. Even if you know what a word is, the puzzle can be tricky if you aren’t sure where the correct letter should come from, presenting a unique little twist on the usual crossword format.
The only downside is that it takes sometimes months for new levels to come out, and when they do it’s only a couple at a time and the game is so addicting that the new levels are completed in a day or two. I would love to see more levels coming, or even a daily puzzle. Simply put, I want to play more! :) Of course that’s not worth taking a star off the rating of such a great game.
Great base with potential for wonder
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.
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).
