Description

CrossCraze is a fun, modern twist on the classic crossword game, designed for players who prefer the challenge of a computer opponent. You can also play offline with a friend. With its super-smart AI and huge range of gameplay and display options, CrossCraze will take your word play to another level.

◆ 10 SKILL LEVELS
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!

◆ 2 GAME MODES
Choose from "Classic" mode, where new letters must link to existing words, and "Tile Stacking" mode, where new tiles can also be dropped over old ones.

◆ 28 BOARD LAYOUTS
Board sizes range from the standard 15x15 squares up to 21x21 (these larger boards help reduce the first-move advantage for a fairer game).

◆ 12 BOARD STYLES
Change the board's appearance to suit your taste. You can even customize the screen colours.

◆ 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). CrossCraze's tournament-standard vocabularies cover almost 5 million words. View English and French dictionary definitions with a swipe of your finger.

◆ 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.

◆ STREAMLINED GAMEPLAY
CrossCraze is a pleasure to play. See your words validated and scored instantly as you place letters.

◆ 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.

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

◆ NO IMPOSSIBLE RACKS
Choose from three tile allocation methods to suit your ability: "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.

◆ PREPARE FOR TOTAL WORD DOMINATION
CrossCraze is a great educational tool for all ages. Boggle your brain, master your spelling, expand your vocabulary, or even practice a foreign language. Plus, it's an excellent training aid for fans of anagrams, crossword puzzles and other classic word building board games. So impress your chums and begin your journey from amateur champ to tournament word master today.
