Pretty solid game. It's basically Letterpress with crosswords. The puzzles seem to have a balanced difficulty level so far, and the Steal mechanic adds some depth. Recommended.

Yeah, I'm loving this. Definite Letterpress vibe, but it does its own thang.

If the devs see this: universal pretty please?

Thanks for posting Stella! If you have any feedback about Crossly, be sure to send us a message via the support email link in the game. We read and respond to all emails.

Guise, glad you are enjoying the game. Curious how puzzle difficulty is holding up for you. We have gotten a good bit of feedback about the puzzles being too difficult.Still considering how to address this. Also, have you discovered Peeks (eye in the left hand corner of the screen)? Some crossword folks are having a hard time not seeing Peeks as cheating. We think they are more strategy. They help the game move forward for those having trouble, and are great as a finishing move at the end of a game. (It's like Mortal Kombat for word nerds!)

Sweetdiss, thanks for checking out the game! We hope to have a Universal app ready in the future.

Looks interesting but from the UK App Store reviews this seems very US-centred. I don't suppose there are any plans to release regionalised versions for countries outside the US?

HLW,

We are exploring how best to approach that. Because of the way we currently generate puzzles and the size of our clue database, that won't happen overnight. Hopefully we can get there though.

Thanks for the feedback!
