This is a great cryptoquote app. The best I've played so far. -Pxystck

Figure out the code in this fun logic game. A phrase is given to you that is encrypted. Each letter corresponds to a different letter. In the beginning an "A" may stand for a "G." Later on down the line, you may find this is not the case.

Use hints if ever you need a little help. Each hint will reveal a set of vowels within the puzzle. Earn more hints by completing the puzzle. Fewer hints used will give you more hints in return.

Spy Words will have you tinkering with the letters until you get the right word, then ultimately the correct phrase. Test your logic and deduction skills along the way. Spy Words is easy to grasp but hard to let down.

Highly recommended for fans of Crosswords, Cryptoglyphic, Enscripted, Cryptoquiz, and Cryptoquote!

Spy Words Features:
- An easy to understand interface
- The ability to change single letters and restart puzzles
- Hints for you to tackle difficult phrases
- Multiple puzzle packs filled with a variety of challenging codes for you to solve

Well done!

Although, I agree, that it is very uncool to push for a review before one has a chance to fully experience a game, I have to say that the game play is easy to understand. The tutorial is good and the puzzles are challenging. I do like the fact that you can get a free puzzle just by writing a review, but I reiterate, not cool pushing it before one gets to fully experience the game play. It is to your advantage to let people get hooked first, which,they assuredly will! That having been said, I still gave it a 5 star, for the game play.

Not your usual Cryptogram game - FUN

Spywords is not your usual type of cryptogram game. Its unique design and set up makes it a bit more interesting and fun, with varying levels from easy-breezy to super challenging. The ability to earn hints as you solve each puzzle - the less hints you need or use, the more hints you earn for those really tough codes down the line. The In-App packages are 99-cents - totally affordable for those who become addicted - and give you more puzzles than anyone should be be spending time on 😀. Try the free version first to make sure you like it!

I feel I am forced to write this too soon,

So far so good, but in order to continue to play one has to write a review right after getting out of the training mode. NOT COOL! It appears that you need to purchase different categories in order to play them. They seem cheap enough.....99 cents, but .99 adds up, pretty quickly. I don't think I should have to write a review before I truly had a chance to play it without the training wheels. There, you have my very honest assessment at this stage of the game. If this game becomes to costly to play, I will loose interest quickly. I will endeavor to keep cost down or quit playing.
