Ratings and ReviewsSee All
I haven’t tried a lot of anagram games on my tablet, but of the ones I have this is by far the best. It’s got a clean, intuitive interface, several difficulty levels, and they give you quite a lot of quotes for free.
I am also impressed with the selection of quotes – there’s a lot of variety, and the ones I’ve done so far been very well-chosen – I’ve never had that feeling that I sometimes have doing anagrams or acrostics where after finishing it I think “Why did they bother making a puzzle out of this quote?”
I’m curious where they’re getting the expert times from, though – those guys must be really really good at cryptograms, because in most cases I’m not even touching their times.
Developer Response ,
A belated thanks for this review. This app has been a labour of love rather than a maker of money, so it's great that you've noticed the little touches!
The timings come from solvers at the website of Puzzle Baron, with some adjustment because device keyboards are slower than computers. I can't touch them most of the time either, but I do notice that the more I play the more 'Expert' ratings I get.
Happy puzzling! Michael @ Egghead Games
I love your Logic Puzzle apps and was so happy to see you had an app for these! It was super intuitive to use, I like how it auto fills the letters while showing the ones that have and haven’t been used. The quote author bio is a nice feature at the end too, I remember always wondering “who is that person?” when I did these as a kid in newspapers and putting the little blurb at the end eliminates me from being tempted to get lost on Wikipedia instead of doing the puzzles to unwind & relax to get ready for bed. It’s perfect, and just wanted to leave a review and say Thank you!
At first I was irritated
At first I was irritated because the cryptoquip from our local paper starts us out with one letter and this one starts you out with ZERO letters. However, I kept coming back to it and I solved a puzzle, then another and another with no hints and I felt a great level of satisfaction. You get a large number free, and can then purchase more sets for just a couple of dollars each. Also has a link to more cool information if you want to follow up after you solve a puzzle. Well done. Thanks!
