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.

Fun!....until you run out of boards

Addictive, fun and challenging game! I can’t play anymore unless I pay. Sure you can invite friends and earn more play BUT I did that, multiple friends joined but we were never rewarded the free play. Or you can watch a video for ONE free play but the video I watched was 5 MINUTES!!! I should of gotten 10 free boards for that amount of time! My suggestions would be to 1- follow through with your reward system ....2 - make the videos shorter to earn free play or keep the longer videos for more free plays ..... 3- when playing against the Kryss bots to learn how to play or to practice don’t deduct that from my games......4- allow users to earn free boards daily to keep them playing!! So many users WANT to continue to play this great game but you are just forcing them to remove the app if they can’t pay for more, myself included. I have emailed the developer and left this review in hopes that they follow through with what they offer. If they do, I will come back and increase my rating.

Developer Response ,

Hi Nazcarchick. Thank you for your feedback. If you invited friends but didn't get the reward then please send us a message through the feedback system in Kryss. Then we can find your account and correct the mistake. There are no 5 minute ads. All ads can be closed after maximum 30 seconds. You just need to press the close button on the ad.
Best, Kryss

Great game but you dropped the ball.

Great game but once you become a paying customer on a game I expect them to give you what they advertised! The end of the obnoxious ads! Nothing worse than to continue to have to constantly jostle around the ads to get back to your turn and play! I loved the fact that you could buy as you go and not be under a monthly debit too! The first purchase was great, lots of boards, and NO ADS! So I had no problem purchasing my second premium package when I was getting close to running out of boards! After purchase I saw my boards had been added but as soon as I started playing Every turn was interrupted by an AD! I quickly shot off an email to which I received a response that said they would look into. A few days have rolled by and I STILL HAVE THE ADS! Look into it and fix it! What’s the hang up? I sent another email. I’m still dealing with ads and now I’m beginning to just sour on the game. It’s not about the price. That’s completely fair IF YOU TAKE THE ADS AWAY. I have kept my end up by continuing to pay to play. But I don’t have the patience to deal with the frustration of the ads when I already paid to remove them and enjoy the game as it is meant to be played.

If it weren’t for the obnoxious never ending ads

I would seriously love this app if it weren’t for the over abundance of obnoxious ads!! Nothing worse than being force fed ad after ad after ad after ad!!!
This app is no different than all the rest, you either pay $$$ or be ready to invest an enormous amount of time to get through just 1 game because of the never ending ads.
Developer: I know this is money for you, but think about it-every flippin app out there is doing just like you are with the ads. Look at the time you take from ppl that they can’t get back. I’ve actually paid for the privilege to play your app, but I’m going to forfeit the remainder the games I paid for, and delete your app BECAUSE YOU HAVE WAY WAY WAY TOO MANY ADS.
iTunes-you are greedy and ppl are getting sick of it. There needs to be some kind of control over the amount of obnoxious ads you are allowed to cram down the very throats that are padding your fat fat fat wallets! Can you say boycott??
