Knotwords is a minimal and elegant logic puzzle — with words.

The rules are simple: arrange the letters in each section so every word is valid, across and down.

Each puzzle may seem difficult at first — but like all my favorite newspaper puzzles, it gets easier as you progress. Each step guides you naturally towards the solution.

This is the kind of game I've been trying to make my whole career — I'm amazed Jack and I discovered this design. We hope you like it.

The next great word game!

I don't write reviews often (go check, I'll wait) but I've loved this game for the same reason I love crosswords, Wordle, anagrams, etc. The design here is very simple and anyone can play this game (especially English-speaking individuals).The gameplay here is great with just enough challenge that you won't figure out every puzzle in a minute, but you'll rarely go over 10 minutes on one (I think...I'm averaging about 4 minutes per). Paid for the lifetime license already because I can tell this is going to stay on my phone for that perfect 'quick mental break' I need every now and then. I know it said there are different color themes, but I've yet to figure out how to activate them. Overall, fun and engaging game. Well done.

A nearly perfect game you aren’t allowed to play.

I really like this game, controls are intuitive, concept is well thought out and even better executed, the presentation is nothing less than what I’ve come to expect from Zach Gage games. All that said, I think 12 dollars (or a subscription service) is a little steep for a mobile game. I beat every available puzzle and daily puzzle up until this review in just under a day. I’d at least like the option to maybe watch ads to continue playing or unlock other content. Even if the cost were only .99 cents I’d have a hard time giving this a 5 because (so far) all the puzzles are time locked (so daily/monthly levels rather than everything all at once) which still would mean that I wouldn’t be allowed to play once I beat the paid content. I really like supporting smaller devs and I’ve enjoyed every single other Zach Gage game almost to its fullest but this sitting next to the almost infinite levels of Good Sudoku

The game is good 👍

I truly enjoy this game and find it very fun. It’s a great way to start each day with a mini and classic challenge but I agree with many of the other reviews. Text input (and backspacing) seems to be very unintuitive and a bit disruptive with where it chooses to go. Also, the subscription/full price is a bit steep though I do understand… it’s interesting that you only get the first 10 puzzles for the month but I guess that keeps you coming back more for the daily puzzles. Speaking of wish, I really wish we got to do just 1 twisty puzzle a day. Additional tidbits - Don’t like double tapping to get into puzzles. Wish we could silence the rabbit. Would love to see what the color/theme options are as well as what the Daily Twist looks like before throwing up a pay screen. I would never buy something I can’t see or test out first. Finally, sharing to Facebook only shares a link to the game, unlike Twitter which shares a picture of the puzzle (preferable) 🧩
