Very enjoyable. Recommend


Like this twist on mini cross words. This is a great app because you can complete the puzzles in a minute or to...when you have just a bit of time But don’t want to have to commit to a large puzzle. It is Challenging as you have to think out of the box so you are not fooled by the titles. I don’t like the sports offerings because I do not follow sports so expecting a person to know the names of specific players is not conducive to encouraging a person to buy more of the packs. THANK YOU for LIMITLESS HINTS. And the LACK of annoying ADS Between every puzzle. ( I personally have deleted several apps because of excessive ads between EVERY turn or have to spend ridiculous amounts for enough hints to keep the ads away.) I hope you will try this app as I think it is great.

Fun game!


I’m truly enjoying this little crossword game! I’m wondering if the hints are unlimited, or at some point will I have to purchase them? I didn’t read anything about this. Also, it would be nice to be able to shuffle the letters. Otherwise, a great way to relax and exercise your brain cells!

Once again, I’d like to add that it would be helpful to be able to shuffle the letters. Also, I’m not a fan of dragging letters. Perhaps you could allow a word, whether across or down, to be highlighted once the player chooses it, and then allow the player to tap a letter to automatically populate a space. Dragging letters is a ‘drag’! Otherwise, a clever little game. And thanks for adding the daily free puzzle!

Good update


EDIT: Blue Ox added free daily puzzles, so my concerns below have been addressed. Upped my rating from 3 to 4 stars.

I’ve enjoyed the other Blue Ox titles: Red Herring, 7 Little Words and Monkey Wrench. They’re not particularly challenging but their daily free puzzles are a nice 5-minute distraction. Tiny Little Crosswords has 56 free puzzles to start. These were quite fun, and some even had above-average difficulty.

After those however, a $0.99 in-app purchase is required for each of several sets of 50 more puzzles. I guess the “1 free puzzle daily” is no longer the model they wish to support. That’s fine I suppose, but I finished the free content in a short time and have no intention of buying any packs, so I guess I might as well delete. I’d probably watch a video ad to get a free puzzle (an addition they’ve made to other apps), but that option isn’t available here.

Just a bit of a disappointment after my enjoyment of previous Blue Ox games.
