Great game!

I’m glad the game was updated. I like that it advances to the next empty spot, and shows which letters have been used. I also appreciate the text being above the puzzle, but the puzzles are now so short that they are sometimes very difficult to solve. Also, what happened to the keyboard? I liked it better before, where you just had to tap a letter and the keyboard would pop up. And I wish the game would sync with my other devices!!
Other than that it's an awesome game!

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.

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!!
