It's rare to find ANY Cryptic Crossword Puzzle app. This one has everything one would expect, except being able to use the default keyboard. Puzzles are challenging to very difficult as is expected for the genre. None have been mind-numbingly difficult. There is a slight British flavo(u)r to these, but I have found no modern source for Cryptic Crosswords not written by British authors. Knowing this is important for solving some clues, but does not detract from the experience. 5 Stars!

Very good app for those reasonably skilled at solving cryptic crosswords but not yet at the very expert level. Challenging but not frustrating. Also good for those who are beginners at solving this type of puzzle, and a good introduction to the genre for people who look at cryptic puzzle clues and are intrigued but baffled. It will help you make sense of it all.

Lotta fun. better than most, tho option to see more than one clue at a time would be good. Lighting up wrong letters immediately would also make the game run faster..gamers don't enjoy having to go back and forth too much. This version could be top o' the heap with a few tweaks.๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ‘Œ
