Editors’ Notes

This ingenious take on crossword puzzles challenges you to rearrange a square of letters to create words. As the game progresses, the grids get bigger, and the difficulty grows with every new solution. With endless possibilities and limited clues to help, it’s a devilishly clever test of logic and vocabulary that you’ll love.

Challenging & Innovative

Although I have a history of accumulating games in a dusty folder, playing them for approximately one week, and then leaving them to rot; I have to say, this game does a spectacular job of holding my attention. It's definitely challenging, and not for the weak of heart - or weak of mind, to be perfectly frank. It's premise has been done before, but I think this app does it in a way that is refreshing.

Before I conclude this review, I'd like to say that I have a wide vocabulary and an adept mind, but on level 20-something... Well, I'm certainly not putting this game down anytime soon.

Challenging, a little clunky

Solid, challenging game, forces you to think of lots of possible word combinations. Hints help you through when you can't visualize any word words or you've given up. It's a good brain stretcher, with three minor issues: 1-letter switching should be possible between any two spots not just in one row or column. 2-if you solve one of the words correctly, show it solved, maybe even auto-fill the duplicate word to eliminate busywork. 3-after using a hint, show that letter as solved. Fix those minor issues and you're 5 stars.
