    There's a reason the classics have stuck around forever - they're solid games built on a foundation of the morals of our Founding Fathers. Alright, maybe it's just good design - ORT Software's CrossCraze is an app in this classic vein.

    Place your letter tiles on the board to form words along the grid. Hit the bonus tiles to multiply your points. You can choose to play against the AI at all different levels of difficulty, or if you upgrade to the Pro version, you'll be able to face off against a human opponent. Choose from loads of different board layouts and styles, plus many different modes of play. There are even hint options for when you get stuck.

    CrossCraze supposrts US or International English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Swedish, Dutch or Danish. Whew! Way to go, polyglots!

    It may not be the most original app, but ORT Software's CrossCraze is a very well designed wordplay game with a heap of different options so that you can nerd out as long as you like.

    FAIR PLAY
    Are you frustrated by the cheating found in online word games, with so many players using puzzle solvers and in-app purchases for an unfair advantage? Tired of hanging around for your friends to make their move? CrossCraze's single player 'solo' mode lets you choose a computer opponent to match your own skill level. It never takes more than a moment to think, never abandons a game before the end, and never sends you inappropriate messages. How refreshing!

    CLASSIC WORD-BUILDING GAMEPLAY
    Choose from two game modes: 'Classic', where new letters must link to existing words (e.g. change RABBLE to the verb SCRABBLE); and 'Tile Stacking', where new tiles can also be dropped over old ones (e.g. SCRABBLE becomes SCRAMBLE).

    THINK FAST
    Want more pressure? Set yourself a timer. Make your move before the clock counts down or face the penalty!

    PLAY IT YOUR WAY
    Want to play names, or other words that aren't usually allowed? CrossCraze's 'Flexible' vocabulary option lets you override the default word list.

    LOST FOR WORDS?
    Don't scrabble in the dark. CrossCraze's unique 'hint' system will find you the best word. Allow yourself as many or as few hints per game as you like. CrossCraze can spell out the full word, or just show you where to look.

    NO IMPOSSIBLE RACKS
    Choose from three tile allocation methods: 'Random' for pot luck; 'Balanced' for a more predictable draw; or 'Helpful' to maintain an even spread of letters across your rack.

    SORT OR SCRAMBLE
    CrossCraze's automatic rack sorting lets you order your letters alphabetically, or split them into vowels and consonants. Alternatively, scramble your rack with a simple double-tap.

    MASTER YOUR VOCABULARY
    Swipe along any word on the board to see its dictionary definition (internet required).

    9 LANGUAGES
    Play in English (US or International), French (Français), German (Deutsch), Spanish (Español), Italian (Italiano), Dutch (Nederlands), Danish (Dansk), Norwegian (Norsk) or Swedish (Svenska).

    BECOME A WORD MASTER
