Crickle - creative word play
by: Crickle Word Games • 15
When you've played endless word games, there isn't much space for originality. However, Crickle stands out from the rest of applications thanks to its unique approach and beautiful graphics. Crickle is a compelling and challenging game for those who claim they're great with words.
How to play? Take a look at the letters placed on the rack and create your first word. After submitting it, you need to repeat the process but make sure you use one of the letters from the first word in order to create your second. And simply keep on going... Don't worry, the app will highlight the letters that appear on the previous word, but you can also use the yellow tile (floats) in case there isn't a common one. That won't score any points, though.
Our advice? Make sure your word is as long as it can be. This way, you'll have a better chance of using a repeated letter. As in Scrabble, each letter has its own score. You can play as many times as you want and every game will be completely different.
The game has an extensive tutorial and makes sure you understand everything before you start your first game. It's also a well-crafted game with an interesting premise and many hours of fun ahead. In addition, there are three available game modes: Fun, Challenge and, our favorite, Custom, where you can personalize every variable.
You only have 15 games for free, which isn't always the best strategy. Some people prefer not to pay at first and maybe purchase some power-ups when they get stuck (it gets quite hard!). We'd love if we could play against friends and random players.

CRICKLE - THE CREATIVE WORD GAME
Escape into a word challenge! If you can spell and you like Boggle, you will love Crickle. Use letters in your rack to create words. Link the words together to build a word stream. Enjoy the wordplay and extend your vocabulary.
The aim is beat your previous score.
You’ll be playing in minutes, but you’ll improve over weeks and months. There is no end to the fun as game play is endlessly varied.
Crickle has been selected for the Amazon "Wall of Winners", described as "Excellent and Unique" by Appszoom and "Unique and Fun" by iPhonemom.com.
HOW TO PLAY
The rules are simple. Using the letters in your rack, compose a word and place it on the board. For the game to accept the word however, you must spell it correctly and it must link to the word above. Words link via repeated letters.
Help is on hand in the form of floats. These may be used to float a letter down from the row above.
Sounds simple? It is simple, but did you beat your previous score?
If you started with the ‘Fun’ game, then perhaps it is time to try ‘Challenge ‘– which is a little harder. Want to change games again? That’s easy. There are endless game configurations available because you can configure the games yourself.
NO TIME LIMIT
Games tend to take between two and ten minutes, but you’ll probably hit play again… in which case…
- Configured for mobile phones
