Crossword Dungeon (by Nolithius)

Now this looks fresh and fun. Diving in.... Geronimooooooo!

Hi, you seemed to be lost on the Internets.
This is TouchArcade, where 2$ for a game is too much, 5$ is an outrage, and 10$ or more is putting sugar in their car tanks whilst killing puppies.

I love dungeons (in a gamey kind of way) and I love crosswords - this has the potential to be epic! Thanks for taking the plunge Vovin!

Game Impressions

Nice idea, and technically at least looks sound. Too early to tell about actual gameplay mechanics, as early on I'm finding them somewhat confusing in terms of how my various skills benefit me and monster behaviour.

One apparent issue is the crosswords themselves are much too easy, at least early on. Different difficulty categories might be required.

Ridley Scott did not direct 2001: A Space Odyssey. (And the worst thing you can do in a word/trivia game is place its factual credibility in question.)

Overall though, this looks to have high potential at least, to be fun.

Snap, this came out of left field!

Sucks that there are factual errors - crosswords too easy is fine by me, I've always sucked at crosswords.

Enjoying this so far. Difficulty starts off easy at first but I find it gets harder. Lost one game on the 4th puzzle cos I didn't know what the most Northan us state was.... I am English tho so I don't blame myself.....
