Tangol is a Sudoku style word puzzle grid, based on the classic Sator Square puzzle! Spell words both horizontally and vertically across the entire grid to find each puzzle's solution. Harder than it sounds!

Each puzzle is generated in-game with thousands of different word variations! If you get stuck, you can use an in-game hint to lock a letter in its place.

Test your brain against 3 different play modes, each with grid sizes that go from 3x3 to 6x6.

-- Endless Mode --
Use assist guides to find the correct words and word placement to solve thousands of distinct puzzles. This is the classic Tangol mode with endless levels!

-- Advanced Mode --
3 times the points, but zero assists -- Endless levels!

-- Timed Mode --
Solve each puzzle as quickly as possible to win big points!

-- Feats --
Track your progress with Feats, displays everything from your best time to how many grids you've played.

Tangol is ad supported, but you can remove ads for just $1.99!


-- Tangol! Solitaire (Holidays 2020) --
Solitaire mode allows you to spell your own words (no pre-generated puzzles) in order to score big points! Start with a single letter in the center of the grid and build out from there.

Fun AND challenging

Great “mirrored” word puzzle game unlike others I’ve played. Have to really work your brain on some, like the 5x5 grids (my favorite, even though I need hints to finish them 😆). Lots of free play with the demo but reasonable price to unlock full game and then can buy hints (you earn them by solving puzzles, too). Excellent addition to my word game collection!

Fun Puzzle Game

I love this game! It’s like one of those shifting tile games where you’re trying to make a picture, but in this case, it’s words! Plenty of options for play (with hints, without, timed, etc) for whatever level of challenge you need!

Challenging but fun!

Tangol is one of the more interesting games I’ve played in a while. New concept (at least to me) on a word game, not the same old boring stuff that’s all over the App Store these days. Highly recommend it!
