Arrow Words is a classic crossword app with a useful twist. In arrow words puzzles, the clues are shown right in the puzzle grid, making them easy to view and play on the iPad screen.

This lovingly produced app includes 1200 all-new Arrow Words puzzles in 4 levels. Easier levels use simpler words and a smaller grid, perfect for a short break. Harder levels have tougher clues and larger puzzle grids for hours of challenging fun. Also, careful editing and a huge pool of words ensure that clues don’t repeat too often.

The sound and graphics are also designed for true crossword aficionados. Choose from three visual interfaces that recreate the atmosphere of the crossword in the Sunday paper. If you miss using your favorite pen to solve puzzels, you’ll love the optional sounds of a moving pen as you fill in the squares, custom recorded for each letter!

PLEASE NOTE: our puzzles are created by British puzzle editors especially with players from Commonwealth countries in mind. Of course, North American players are welcome to join the fun.

• 1200 puzzles, 4 difficulty levels and grid sizes

Wonderful Game; but.......

The only complaint is that this is geared to the British English for the most part. Would appreciate one using USA enlist words and spellings. Definitely not boring and challenges your vocabulary, spelling, and trivia knowledge. I am senior and want to keep my mind active. Thank you to the developers.

I love crosswords and I love these. Sometimes I lose my puzzles for months due to technical problems I suppose. All in all I like Dell better than any other! Keep up the good work.

Love the British words and spelling. Hours of fun. Learning words that I have never used and will never use.
