Also called anacrostics, the puzzles are based on anagrams and crosswords. Your goal is to reveal a hidden quote in a grid by correctly answering crossword-style clues.

As you fill in more and more answers, more letters will begin to fill the quote grid, until eventually the entire quote is revealed. You can also do this in reverse. As words of the quote become clear, they will fill in the clue answers!

    A liitle pricey. I don't mind paying 2.99 for the first set but subsequent sets should be less. Also, would like option to play without timer. I play these games to relax. But one time I did beat the Expert score and only rated Average. What's up with that?

    The puzzles I have tried so far are pretty good, but I can't tell much difference between the difficulty levels. I wish the puzzles were longer like the ones in the Penny mags. The interface is frustrating, it's hard to choose a particular square, it often takes several presses before it registers a touch. There should be an option to skip completed squares when entering letters. I will keep

    Enjoying these crostics. They are a little more challenging than I'm used to, but at least there's no penalty when I need to use a hint.

    A little on the difficult side but then I like a challenge. Good game.
