Kryss is the new, highly addictive game that lets two players test each other's imagination and vocabulary.

The turn-based game is developed from the idea of transforming the traditional crossword solution - oldschool Scandinavian style - into a game where you compete against each other in the same crossword puzzle.

You receive five letters each turn, then strive to place the letters in the crossword within a minute. There are several ways of outscoring your opponent, including a significant bonuses for completing words, for getting key letters right or for using all your five letters within a round.

Then again: it might just pay off to keep one of the crucial letters for later use – when the stakes are higher.

Kryss has the element of randomly awarded letters in common with a classic game like Scrabble and other word games.

But Kryss is faster, and it offers a logic and gaming experience which makes it feel like no other passtime you ever engaged in. It is pure yoga for the brain, meditation for the mind, vocabulary training in a game, all the while being so easily accessible that it is loads of fun for both young and old.

And with the chat function you can keep in touch with your favorite aunt at the same time as teasing your best friend for being the slowest player in the known Universe. Come and play our Word Game. You will love it.

It’s fun, but…

This game is so fun. There aren’t many mobile word games with this format, so I’m glad I found this one. I’ve read some other reviews and I also agree that there are way too few game boards. They don’t regenerate everyday, if you use up your initial 10 boards, that’s it. From then on, you can watch 3 ads to get 3 new boards (once every 24 hours), use your in game points to buy boards (1 board is 96 coins, you earn 10 coins if you win a game), or you have to spend real money to get more game boards. Since this is the only game of its kind on the App Store, I guess they’ve been able to get away with this system, it just makes it much harder to enjoy the game. One game can take 10 minutes, tops, so you can see how quickly you can run out of boards. They should make it like other games where boards regenerate at least daily, maybe only 3 boards. Then you could purchase others as needed or wanted. As it is, the games are over way too quickly and I can’t play as often as I might like. I hope the developers will make some kind of change like this!

Could be so much better

I really like the concept of this game, but it has so many issues. First off, it’s buggy. It constantly has issues, it gets my phone VERY hot very quickly, it crashes a lot, it just generally does not run well. Another issue is that there is no way to start a new game unless you either pay or watch an ad. It would be nice if you could do something to earn games. I’m so tired of games that you have to pay a small fortune to play or it just isn’t as fun or super obnoxious because it’s nothing but watching ads. Not only do you have to watch an ad to start a new game, it makes you watch ads after many of your turns. I honestly refuse to pay ANY money on apps that are that greedy. If an app has options to reduce/remove ads by paying a one time fee, I’m much more willing to spend money on the app in other ways, as long as it’s not outrageous pricing like so many other phone games. It’s absolutely ridiculous the amount of money games like this ask you to pay to make the game enjoyable. I could pay $60-$70 on a PlayStation game with incredible graphics and a beautiful storyline and play-through and then some stupid phone app asks me to pay $99 for gems, or boards, or whatever form of currency they’re using in the game that will be gone in a matter of a week. It’s ridiculous. Don’t waste your time or money with this game. Find a better one that runs better and doesn’t ask you to sell your first born child to play it.

So Many Ads and Not Enough Benefits

This game plays great and has a really cool unique setup that makes it very enjoyable for the casual player. But… Do you really need to have ads play after every turn? You have micro ads playing on each screen and then you have ads playing after each and every turn. I get the desire to make money off a game like this but the only option to remove the adds is a $10/month subscription? Seems to me like your cost to reward ratio is heavily skewed. Please offer tiered one time purchases for the ads! The ads are to intrusive and it really takes away from the enjoyment of the game. Again, I’m all for making money but there has to be some thought into when and where you stick intrusive ads. Maybe at the end of the game instead at the end of each turn? Maybe when you first load the game? Also, the game board situation is just as tragic and needs to be retooled. Maybe offer 5 games boards a day instead of three? Maybe lower the cost to purchase? You want people in your game and you want them to contribute to your ad revenue. Please don’t penalize people for not wanting to add on another monthly subscription. Be part of the change in the mobile industry and be creative with your revenue streams, which we all know you can do, I mean look at your game, it’s obvious a gem of a game!!
