About this game

Acrostics, also known as Crostics, Anacrostics, and Double-Crostics, are like crossword puzzles with a bonus prize. The app includes 50 quality puzzles from Puzzle Baron, Acrostics by Cyn, Penny Press, Acrostica and Lovatts Puzzles. Your goal is to reveal a hidden quote in a grid by correctly answering crossword-style clues. This combination of crossword and cryptogram will stretch your brain with an entertaining workout. Each letter in the quote is linked to a letter in one of the clue answers. As you fill in more and more answers, more letters will begin to fill the quote grid, until eventually the entire quote is revealed. You can also do this in reverse. As words of the quote become clear, they will fill in the clue answers!

Designed for fast and easy play, Acrostics lets you concentrate on solving the clues without all the erasing of pencil and paper solving. The result is pure puzzle solving fun with no ads or distractions!

Advanced play features include automatic grid updating and indexing, see related cells, multi-level undo, remove errors, and hints. A wide range of difficulty levels will challenge beginners and seasoned players alike.

Acrostics includes more than 50 additional puzzle packs available for purchase, each for about the price of a mocha java caramel swirl Frappuccino. Pick your favorite publisher or try something different. These will provide HOURS and HOURS of fun!

If you like word games, crosswords or cryptograms, acrostics are a fun way to exercise your brain!

I am having a difficult time dealing with the dark mode. I am also not happy with how the unsolved puzzles displayed. I The icons are too big. In short, I am not happy with update. I have had the app for a long time and have enjoyed it, but the new display is making it cumbersome to use. Please give option to toggle white mode.

If you complete the puzzle but there is an error - usually due a typo - you get a message that the puzzle is not solved correctly. That is fine. However, that message counts as a "hint" and cost you an trophy icon. Very very frustrating when I complete the puzzle without hints and I get penalized anyway. The message that is isn't correct doesn't point out where the error is, so not a hint. *Update* I figured out what happens is that the cells to enter in letters is so close to the lightbulb it is very easy to accidently hit the lightbulb hint. Frustrating but not a huge problem since you don't unlock anything or gain any benefit by not taking hints.

Hi, I'm sorry this is happening. I was not aware of it. Do you mind emailing support@eggheadgames.com with a screenshot of this? I'm having trouble reproducing it and would like to get it fixed :( I agree that it must be extremely frustrating!! Cheers, Michael

Well they updated the new version to allow you to get out of dark mode but not in any intuitive way. But I'll take it. But I had bought all Puzzle Baron acrostics up to number 38 and I can't see 22-38. I used to be able to see them in the previous major version. But they're gone. What did I spend my money for?

EDIT 2: Please see Solved Puzzles for all prior purchased puzzles. They're all there, for you to play as many times as you want. The new "Solved" badge count should reflect that too. Email support@eggheadgames.com if you're having any problems at all. We're trying to make this better not worse, nor rip anyone off. Thanks, Michael @ Egghead Games

What's new

Allows hiding of puzzles so they don't keep showing up in lists. Perhaps they were already completed in a purchased book, or you wish to skip puzzles from a publisher. Now you can quickly get them out of the way – and easily put them back later. Tap Hide at the top right in the app to get started.
