Enjoy Cryptograms, a free puzzle game from Razzle Puzzles where the goal is to decode famous quotes! If you like interesting quotes and word puzzles, you will love Cryptograms!

About Cryptograms:

A cryptogram is an encoded statement that requires a degree of strategy to decode. The cryptograms found in this puzzle game use a 1-to-1 substitution cipher. For example all of the letter N’s in a cryptogram might stand for the letter B in the decoded statement. Aside from letters nothing else in the statement has been changed, e.g. spacing and punctuation. In the case of this puzzle game all statements are quotes from relatively famous to very famous individuals. Using your knowledge of the English language and grammar, see if you can decode the quote!

Cryptograms based on quotes are also commonly called cryptoquotes. The cryptoquotes found in this puzzle game are a mix of modern and historical quotes.

Track your best and average solve times over history with our stats tracker.

You can play Cryptograms by Razzle Puzzles on your phone and tablet. Enjoy online or in offline mode!

Great game!!

I have been playing this game for years now and still love it! I find that there's a good mix of easy and difficult puzzles as well as a good mix of modern and historical quotes! The new stats dialog is really fun to track my games. It's nice that I can see my times over time. Very happy to see too that they added an auto advance setting to move to the next open letter! Also pleased to see that we can see the letters that have already been used. I'll be playing Cryptograms for a long time coming. Keep up the good work!

Update: It’s great to see the addition of the “More” menu! I like that I can click on another game and it goes right into it.

Update 2: It seems like there are a bunch of new quotes in the latest update. Really enjoying some of them and finding a few thought provoking. Some of the longer quotes are easier to solve than the short ones since there are more clues but I think that’s OK. It makes the next game a surprise difficulty! It would be nice to be able to reset your stats. Hopefully an easy change! Thanks again for this great game.

One tiny tiny tiny critique...

This is the silliest of critiques of this game but here we go. I LOVE this game. Some of them are really hard and take time and effort... and it’s in those moments when I FINALLY solve one that... I wish there was a small moment of... “fanfare”..or “celebration” when you finally solve it.. it just clicks over to the result.. even a second of a pause with a “boom! You did it!”...or even just a pause before the screen changes. It happens so suddenly! A bad example... but like, when you finish a level of Candy Crush.. the screen expose in celebration... haha..

Most the time I don’t even have time to read down the entire thing before it just clicks over to the next screen. And yes while it has the entire solve on the next screen, it’s not as exciting.. it just happens so fast and I rarely get a moment to appreciate the quote and who said it.

Other then that I love the game.

Would love to upgrade!

I would give this app 5 stars, because I love it and play it all the time, but it has no way to upgrade to an ad-free version. I would pay for this! Also, it would be cool if it could time you and compare you to others who have solved the same puzzle. Also maybe be able to choose level of difficulty and subject of quotes? And a way to share? All things I would pay for. It's a great app, looking forward to the improvements so I can give you 5 stars. Checking in later, still no upgrade available. Come on, guys!

...much later, I am still waiting for the opportunity to upgrade to a paid, ad-free version. Why don't you offer this?

Now months later, still want to upgrade to an ad free version
