What's New in Version 3.0

iPad Retina and iPhone 5 support for Crypto-Families, Cryptogram and Quotefalls.
- Added high resolution art for iPad retina support.
- New layout to get the most from the iPhone 5's larger screen, including a wider keyboard!
- Average puzzle times are now based on millions of scores.

Sorry for the long delay between updates - recreating all of the art at high resolutions for the retina iPads took a long time. Now that that task is over we'll get back to continuing to make Crypto-Families better and better.

Customer Reviews

OK, but not as nice as the daily version

The daily version (which is how I found this full app) has a cleaner interface. It's more noticeable which letters you have already used.

Also, I think there should be some sort of reset button (there isn't one in the daily version either) to start the puzzle over if you want to undo everything because it's not making sense. Deleting each letter an annoying way to have to clear out the puzzle.

Thought provoking

Love having to think but still have fun at the same time. I have a suggestion: Sometimes you have the right answer but start it on the wrong space because there is more than one line with the same number of blank spaces. Is there anyway that the clock could stop or the letter you chose jump to the correct line so you are not penalized? This is not a complaint...just a thought. Thanks for a great game!

Great word game

I've always liked Cryptograms and their various offspring. This game is well thought-out, and has all the tools to make solving more fun and less drudgery. Only one worry, though. I have been going through word lists like crazy. . what happens when all the words are solved!!??
