About this game

Astraware CodeWords is an addictive word game with a difference! You start with a crosswords style grid but instead of words, each codeword letter has been substituted with a number from 1 to 26. It is up to you to figure out which number stands for each letter in the cipher!

There are no clues but 3 letters are already in place to help you get started and each letter of the alphabet is used at least once. You start by guessing possible words and matching numbers with letters, until you've fully cracked the code - and your vocabulary and logical reasoning will be stretched along the way!

Did you know that the letter 'e' is the most commonly used letter in English? Did you know that 'th' is the most common pair of letters to be seen together? You'll use this knowledge and more as you make your guesses and work out the words!

Astraware CodeWords gives you access to play our free Daily puzzles - top the global leaderboard by completing the puzzle in the fastest time! For an extra challenge there is a Weekender puzzle available each Friday with a trickier grid and more unusual words.

- Unlimited access to our four Daily puzzles and Weekender puzzle.
- A collection of 50 built-in puzzles in various sizes and difficulties, perfect for beginners and avid players
- New endless puzzle streams - watch ads (or take short surveys) then play the puzzles you like!
- Intuitive interface
- Highlighting to show where you've chosen the same letter for different numbers
- Option to fill in letters manually, or choose auto to fill in all occurrences of that letter at once
- Save slots available to have several puzzles on the go at once, so you can stop for a break and come back to a puzzle later
- Option to purchase extra value puzzle packs for offline play
- New option to subscribe to Puzzles Plus - all the daily, weekender and stream puzzles ad-free!

It's pretty nice. Not everyone playing this has young eyes. Need bolder letters on the keyboard. Also the puzzle grid is hard to read. Higher contrast and a more readable letter font would be a huge improvement. Reduce the margins and it could be larger. For some reason I couldn't enter my name with Swiftkey keyboard, so I had to switch to Samsung keyboard. Finally, I like how casual players can earn credits to play, and avid players can pay a reasonably priced subscription. Overall, I recommend it, if you have good enough eyesight.

Hello David! Thank you for those thoughts! We're proud to have a wide demographic for CodeWords, so making the game better for those without perfect vision is something I'm intending to do. Thanks for your review! David

Truly excellent, and VERY addictive game!! This is the best word game I've found in a long time. It's fun and challenging, but not impossible. The only issue I have is the building up of coins to play non-daily puzzles... I would Love to just play the game, and not have to watch 10 videos. I just don't have enough time to do both. Otherwise, this game is GREAT, and I highly recommend!!

Absolutely fantastic app! By far the best codeword app out there. The only 2 things that could improve it would be a bold font for the letters so that it is easier to see, and a solutions grid for each puzzle so that you can see the full solutions in one go without needing to use hints (this would be ideal for people who want to check their answers manually at the end all in one go). But these are just minor improvements, the app is brilliant and I am thankful for you making it free to download!
