Excellent way to spend my time

If you like cryptograms this app is definitely worth your while. I like that it has a good variety of different styles from short tales, ancient tales, poems, and other styles of writing. And with a repertoire of different authors each cryptogram exposes you to a different style of writing. What makes it even more fun for me, is that, by the time you’re done with a cryptogram you will have also read a new book or story, which can take as long as you want (you can pick how lengthy a tale you wanna tackle and it saves your progress automatically so you can take as many days, months, or years to finish one). And if you get bored you can always work on a new one or go back and pick off where you left off on an old one.

I’d also like to add, the developer was very responsive when I submitted feedback about a small bug I came across on a prior version which was fixed pretty quickly on the next update. Thank you for taking my feedback!

Love this game!

I love the concept of this cryptogram game! Decoding a whole story keeps the interest so much longer. It just challenging enough that you’re not discouraged if you hit rough spot. Totally addicted!! There’s so many stories to decode it’s practically limitless!! Please keep updating with new stories! Update: I don’t usually pay for games but this time I did! Willing to support a great game! $1.99 to remove the ads? Totally worth it!!

Needs more mature taste in literature

An excellent idea with a couple of flaws, both related to the choice of texts. The first is that unless there are some peculiar features in a passage, they’re rarely difficult to solve—pull out A and I, and then look for a likely THE. Then, since you already know the general subject of the passage, the solution is usually pretty obvious. But I can see how some people would find this a virtue—it can be relaxing to knock off a series of easy puzzles. The second flaw relates to the developer’s taste in literature. The selections aren’t bad, exactly, but they’re all the sort of stories that appeal particularly to teenage boys. I find myself groaning (and often skipping to the next one) as soon as I recognize the text, usually on the first page. Selections chosen by someone with more mature literary taste would be very welcome.
