Customer Reviews

I used to really love this game.

I used to play this game all the time. They have contests for people to make their own puzzles, And I even won a few times! But I don't see any new puzzles, other than news and entertainment news, and nothing fun going on. I wish it was still like it was 3 years ago.

Also disappointed

So now some words appear as a hyphenated answer with no blanks in the clue text. It's not hard to figure out. Also, sometimes a screen about getting free plays appears and freezes the game. Nothing to do but hard restart my phone.

Keeps freezing

I love Crickler puzzles! Over the last several weeks, though, the app freezes every time I try to get to a new puzzle by clicking on a category. Help!
