This app would be great......
by TheWagonBaron on 2019/10/15 00:02
If they’re weren’t ads at almost every transition. I get putting ads into your game to either help support it or get people to buy an ad-free version but this app is overkill. Want to load a puzzle? Watch this ad. Want to go back to the main screen after finishing a puzzle? Here’s an ad. Accidental click out of a puzzle? Another ad and then a bonus ad when you try to go back into the puzzle. It’s. Too. Much. You shouldn’t have an ad on every single transition. I uninstalled because of this.

Ok app
by jetsetting teacher on 2019/09/21 00:34
Repetitious but fun enough to while away 10 mins. There are a few inaccuracies that I’ve found so far though which is annoying to me. The most glaring recently is a clue that said Middle Eastern capital, and the answer was Dubai, but having lived in Abu Dhabi for two years, I know Dubai is not the capital of the UAE, Abu Dhabi is. Dubai is just the most well-known of the 7 emirates. There have been a few others as well, but for the most part the clues are accurate, if not always good, and often repetitive.
Val
by val.L32 on 2019/09/18 15:00
I love this game and been playing for ages. Why oh why does it get stuck on some ads and refuses to move no matter how many times you try to close it. Please, please fix this problem.
British Developer?
by Noizeenoiz on 2019/09/10 16:42
I love word games, so initially I liked this. What annoyed me were some of the word choices. This game must have British developers because several of the words in each puzzle were not known to those in the US. I love BritBox which helped some, but even with hints (which cost coins that are not easily obtained unless you spend real money) I would end up making up something until it was right. When that worked, it ended up being a word I had never heard of even though I have a good vocabulary. More frustrating than fun.
Decent for free
by Chrish62704 on 2019/09/03 21:55
It’s a decent crossword puzzle app with plenty to keep you busy. However, the clues often use foreign idioms that make the answers difficult, unless you have a pretty good understanding of British slang. Apparently, kitting means asleep and a common household shrub is a cheese plant, neither of which are terms used often at all in the states. Either way, if you can get past this, it’s a decent crossword app.
Worlds biggest crossword

No word list
Becomes Unplayable Unless you buy more tokens.
by TMann34 on 2019/08/25 18:20
You can play free for quite awhile. It costs you tokens to open the new puzzles. You have a bank of ten that refill with time. Puzzles start costing more the further you progress. Then when you get down to around 800 puzzles left the puzzles cost 11 tokens. So in order to get more than 10 you must purchase or wait the 24 hours to play one puzzle. It’s a great app and the words get to be quite challenging after awhile. But why increase the cost to where you must pay to play? Doesn’t that defeat the purpose of a free app?
Kiddy game
by JazmynFL on 2019/08/23 23:56
What’s up with all the “quests” and side junk. I just wanted a plain old ordinary crossword for adult players, not a kiddy game.
Awesome game!
by DrBarr on 2019/08/10 15:23
The only thing I would recommend is maybe not showing ads for games I already own or doubling the tokens awarded. I love this game and will never stop playing! Well done.
From a kids point of view
by MRLOLS666 on 2019/08/07 23:29
It is to hard for kids that are younger than 15
Not Worth It!!!
by alien.zeebo on 2019/07/30 03:50
You will spend more time watching adds than you will working puzzles and the puzzles are not very good. Find another crossword app unless you like watching the same adds over and over and over again.
Love this app
by ***POPROCKS*** on 2019/07/21 05:54
What a great way to spend your downtime!!
It could be better
by Marvel-60 on 2019/07/19 01:05
It’s fun, but if it costs tokens to play then it should award tokens when you solve a puzzle, but it only awards coins. You should be able to buy tokens with the coins, but you can’t.
Horrible
by Giorgiane Phillips on 2019/07/16 07:35
Has changed My life for the worst! I hope the developer stubs his toe!!!!
Crashing problems

Enjoyable crossword varieties
by Dcamonkeys on 2019/07/08 15:30
I’ve played this game for several months and have been enjoying the variety of puzzles offered, although I’ve completed all of the Daily Diamonds, so will have to work on the rest of the puzzles. I’m enjoying the Fact of the Day, but wish I could see those that I’ve completed so I can access them again after I’ve forgotten them. Just be aware that the creators must be British, judging by the slang/informal terms used. I’ve tried other crossword apps, but this is the one that I’ve stuck with.
Suggestion
by Dwjonz on 2019/07/04 16:53
I like the variety of the different games you offer. I would suggest that when a game is finished that we be able to look at the finished puzzle to “admire” our hard work. Just make it so we hit a button to move off to the next puzzle.
Games okay but DO NOT fill out a survey for free coins
by Mwhaley919 on 2019/06/30 16:02
Seriously. I filled out a survey to get a few game coins for free and now my number constantly gets bombarded with spam calls and texts. There’s nothing I can do to stop it. There are no options to stop the calls or texts. Seriously annoying and went from liking this game to despising it.
Too many ads. Way too many.
by chipodos on 2019/06/19 19:29
All in all this is a good app. That said, the ads have been ever-increasing in regularity. Words of advice: (1) ALWAYS use coins to open a puzzle if possible. You'll earn coins much easier than tokens. (2) make sure you get your 5 free tokens and 1250 free coins EVERY day. You'll need the tokens to finish this game and the coins just make it a little easier.
Daily Diamond puzzle
by Thom9113 on 2019/06/10 13:50
Love this game but I still can’t figure out for the life of me how to get to the Daily Diamond puzzle!?! Any help out there?
Pay to Play Crap
by A Fatigued Celebrity on 2019/06/05 01:30
Free tokens are too infrequent, or require watching multiple ads (3+) just to get enough to work another puzzle, or you can pay for tokens. It’s a free app, I understand you have to get your money somehow, but you have so many in-app ads you could do away with tokens and just make the puzzles free to play at your own pace. Instead, I am deleting and moving on. I will never pay for crap like this that I can get truly free elsewhere in other apps.
Full of ads
by Smitherz65 on 2019/06/01 23:35
Games are fun but not worth the time putting up with all of the video ads.
You have to
by psugrla87 on 2019/06/01 15:52
You have to use your hard earned coins to play another crossword. Not for me, game was discarded
I really liked this until
by Pamkl on 2019/05/31 00:22
I did enough puzzles to no longer earn tokens and stopped being able to pay with coins. Yes, I get a few each day as a reward, but they go fast. Wish I could trade in my coins for tokens. The number of ads is annoying as well. When I run out of tokens, I'll be deleting the app. Not worth buying them.
Good game but sooo many ads
by dfc0972 on 2019/05/20 18:54
Want to play a game? Watch an ad. Finish it? Watch another. Play another game? Watch another ad after just watching one. The quests that earn you 250 coins often have requirements that you spend 500 or more on hints. No reason to do the quests.
Very fun and entertaining

Not really free
by mydik927 on 2019/05/06 09:06
Okay, so the download is free, they give you ten token through wait time, but after you complete so many puzzles, the token cost goes up into the 20s, but you max your wait tokens out at 10, I figured the might reward you tokens for completing a puzzle, nope, they give you coins!!! Like whipty doo, so they are subliminally forcing you to either wait extensive time between puzzles( checking in every day for daily bonuses) or buying tokens
One problem
by deet1738 on 2019/05/03 05:22
This problem arose about a year ago. I love this time passer and have completed the main one before this problem started. One I began the tallest, after an update, and once you complete a level, there’s no hoo rah... I know it’s been a while since that update, but before then it was like yay, another one down here’s some coins and a good job. Now it just tells me to go back to the home screen... how unclimatic is that!
Crossword. Lots of fun
by MisterDuke3 on 2019/04/30 19:08
Enjoying. Challenging. It is challenging
Daily Diamond
by TinderIsGarbageNow on 2019/04/21 14:40
AFTER you have completed ALL the Daily Diamond puzzles, maybe stop the notification that you have one available to you. I want to see the star at the bottom that I’ve completed them all and no notification, or make more fresh ones. The feeling of accomplishment is nice, and this prevents it from happening.
Too many bugs/changes
by slytherin_______ on 2019/04/18 10:10
Lately whenever I try and double my daily rewards it doesn’t give me any at all, and after I completed quite a few puzzles in the World’s Biggest category it stopped letting me pay for puzzles with coins. I loved it when I first started but this is too many inconveniences.
Weird words
by Datdudeukno on 2019/04/17 07:57
There are a lot of slang, informal, and basically unused words (titter, snigger, anorak). Probably very British. Clues are very weird, or worded very strangely.
Oh my gosh whereeee did all my coins go??
by Bonnie Kaye on 2019/04/16 12:25
I easily had over 36,000 coins & yesterday they just vanished! I’ve been playing this game for years. Where did my coins go?
I just want todo a crossword puzzle.
by Releasethehounds on 2019/04/14 06:18
Way too many ads now, and too much involvement with wanting to give me clues or help. Just stop it and let us choose our own puzzles.
Out of Puzzles
by r f o n f on 2019/04/11 11:21
Great app except haven’t had any puzzles to do for months. When will you create more puzzles to be done?
Place not Saved
by BluesHarpist on 2019/04/04 23:34
The most annoying thing about the app is that the last puzzle you worked on has to be searched for each time you’ve closed the app. Some of the same hints are repeated, too. That has always annoyed me about most crossword publications, though.
Auto sends to App Store
by Amz9898 on 2019/04/04 07:00
In the middle of doing the puzzle, the app glitches and just keeps sending you to the App Store. I uninstalled. Pathetic.
Fun game
by cjmorri on 2019/03/31 03:26
Fun word game
Paid for No Ads
by Suecq58 on 2019/03/18 08:40
I enjoy the game, but the ads are annoying, so I paid for NO ADS. Yet, ads are still popping up. It’s very frustrating! I would have given 4/5 stars if the ads weren’t still popping up.
It would be better if.....
by DiRosie61 on 2019/03/17 00:07
You gave TOKENS for every puzzle you complete! There’s NO WAY to get tokens (which are needed to play other crosswords and you don’t give the option to watch videos to get tokens!) and miraculously when you complete a challenge, you get MAYBE 2-3 tokens and a crap load of coins! You need 7 or more tokens to play a crossword. That’s just a sleazy way to get ppl to BUY the tokens! So when you do that, most ppl with connecting brain cells, see the writing on the wall and they move on to other crosswords that don’t do that. Although I love the game, I won’t buy tokens for that reason. You took a great game and made it all about the money.
Good when it’s working
by Storck718 on 2019/03/14 00:34
I like the crosswords themselves, but this app is very buggy. It displays ads that force you to play their games and then crash the app. I don’t mind watching videos for free tokens or coins, but forcing me to play the game and go to the App Store just to get back to my game and have it still stuck in the ad is really frustrating. Not sure it’s worth the puzzle itself
Great game
by MattTC11 on 2019/03/08 19:01
Fun and addictive. However, I wish there was an option to get rid of ads, they become quite annoying.
No satisfaction, very frustrating
by Mae_User on 2019/03/02 18:03
I was stuck on the last word, had my whole family working on it to figure it out. One of us tapped a few random letters in and accidentally solved the puzzle, and the whole screen was immediately covered by a completion dialogue. I cant go back to see the completed puzzle, and we’ll never know what that last answer was. At least with a newspaper puzzle, you get the answers along with the next paper. :( I’m uninstalling this very frustrating app.
Fun at first...
by JLRMforever on 2019/03/01 23:07
But there isn’t a way to get free tokens (can’t watch ads to get them anymore), & I refuse to buy them! I can only play it a few minutes each day. Also, British Cryptics, Codewords, Word Grid are too hard, so I can’t get into Quote Falls. Tokens need to be offered with ads. Also, when you play, it helps to realize the puzzles were created from a British point-of-view. I’m nearly done & will delete the app soon.
Ok for a freebie
by BeeJayCee01 on 2019/02/25 23:48
Couldn’t believe that this is a puzzle based on words and one clue misspelled the answer! How dumb!!! FYI: A workshop clamp is a VISE, not a VICE. Pronounce with an s that is closer to a z sound, not a sibilant s.
Not getting earned tokens
by NotHappySamy on 2019/02/20 17:04
3 times now I have completed the tasks needed to earn free tokens, and have not received them. I should have received over 3000 tokens.
Fun
by kad5811 on 2019/02/19 05:52
Fun
Could do without
by lookitsmonster on 2019/02/13 03:30
This would be a nice app game, but I really dislike that they give you like 10 letters to choose from. It makes the game very easy, and is subject to picking words out of those letter until you get the right one.
Too many ads
by Jmbogli on 2019/02/08 02:12
I love this game and have been playing almost daily however I’m getting to the point of deleting because of how many ads there are. It is literally constant. You can’t go back to the main menu without sitting through two advertisements. I actually went into all the settings to see if I could pay for the game and remove ads but unfortunately even that’s not an option. I really hope the developers take these reviews into consideration because the ads are single handedly ruining the game.
Was great but each version is getting worse
by mokumax on 2019/02/07 13:49
I find myself quitting the app more than anything these days. It used to be you’d get an annoying ad 1-2 times per couple of games. Now you get 2 ads just to play 1 game and they are being deceptive using the App Store screen shot with a very small faint X in the corner to close it. Do you think you’ll get more downloads of the apps you advertise by trying to be deceptive? If we can’t trust you to deliver an ad that allows us to make the choice instead of trying to be dishonest about it do you think we’ll trust you? Shouldn’t have updated. 4 versions back was tolerable but as I said, it’s getting worse.
Fun, great brain teaser
by Lady Alex 14 on 2019/02/01 03:47
The game is nice for those wanting to challenge themselves. It helps gets the brain going. However, I wish they wouldn’t use the same clue in different puzzles.
Repetitive with some incorrect spelling
by Gbocc on 2019/01/31 04:32
Many of the words solved for repeat on different puzzles within the same crossword “board,” with “tallest” and “war” being an inclusion in many of the puzzles. With so many words in the English language, why do any of the answers repeat? I’ve also found several spelling errors, for example: The clue “which person” should have the answer “whom,” not “who.” As a word game, spelling does matter.
Variety and Challenging
by Southern467 on 2019/01/31 02:32
Excellent Free Ap option if you enjoy crossword puzzles and similar puzzles. Ads are frequent, but not terribly long. Easy to use once you get familiar with the setup. If you watch BBC you will do very well!
New update
by cobra1027 on 2019/01/28 05:58
This was my favorite game until the new update I finished all the daily diamonds and when a new one is available there is nothing to do because they have all been completed
Not very good
by workinginacoalmine on 2019/01/25 22:52
Too many advertisements.
Enjoyed it!
by L_R_S_1994 on 2019/01/23 21:34
But I wish you could get more tokens without having to pay.
Old daily puzzle logic was better
by KittyLumpkins on 2019/01/22 17:36
Like others, I am annoyed that the update changed the logic for the daily puzzles to make it more like the main game. It is not as enjoyable now and I lost the progress I made over months.
Disappointed
by BabyG2 on 2019/01/22 06:57
You changed the game! Deleting this game!
Bad Update
by LAinMICH on 2019/01/20 20:30
I have been playing this game for over a year and have finished World’s Biggest and World’s Tallest. Had almost finished Daily Diamond when you came up with this terrible update. All my progress on Daily Diamond is gone and now all the puzzles are basically the same. At least you didn’t ruin British Cryptics. Please leave well enough alone. The ads are understandable with a free game. Not half as maddening as losing your progress.
Daily streak is gone. Deleting app
by willsmith977 on 2019/01/20 08:22
I only played for the daily streak, and the latest update removed it. Bye bye app
Love this!
by lrdnow on 2019/01/16 20:05
Been enjoying these puzzles for almost a year now. Love the different types of puzzles. One request. In the latest update you added a button at the bottom of the main page that says “Make progress-play the flashing puzzle!” The flashing puzzle tile seems to have taken the place of bonus puzzles that used to flash. Can we still get the bonus puzzles? Thanks
Ads...
by Jennamir on 2019/01/15 12:38
It now takes me longer to wait through the ads than it does to play the Daily Diamond. I don’t like the game enough to put up with that.
WARNING: Beware of SURVEY “ADS”
by Bonito apps on 2019/01/13 15:20
(First, I want to get out of the way the fact that when a clue is “without speech“ and you put the answer to the clue as “dumb“ it makes you one big unevolved MFA from a foreign country because Americans have evolved from that ancient line of thinking ages ago).... Now back to why I’m deleting this app and why should too... I went into the app’s Store to earn tokens one at a time by watching advertisements, like I have been doing for a few weeks uneventfully. The second one I watched was one I had never seen before, on a very dark plain black screen with white writing only, which was lawfirm related (local to my general area). (I have the screenshot of it still.) It asked “which of these brands have you seen online advertising for recently?“ then it listed five lawfirms with check boxes next to them, and I was to check “all that apply“. However, on the top, it said “earn your reward by answering one question.“ and right below it on the right hand side of the screen in small letters was a link with the words “privacy info.“ Now first, since when are we supposed to HAVE TO INTERACT with any “ads?” When you force users to become trained seals for your advertisers by forcing them to do tricks and turns on the “ads” you splash in their faces, you are way out of line, buster! Those are called SURVEY TASKS, not ADVERTISEMENTS! The users need to know you are demanding they perform SURVEY TASKS WITH PERSONAL INFORMATION for your advertisers/people you sell it to in order to earn one loudy coin. And what is worse?? Yes, it gets WORSE! Don’t forget about the little “privacy info“ link in small letters at the top! This app and that advertiser felt they had to give you that link on the screen by LAW (the lawyers knew that!) because it’s not just an anonymous simple little clicking of a task for you, but now the app has your personal information on who you are on your account in the app and by phone information from the app permissions you already gave it when you downloaded it, including your address book, blah blah, and all the other permissions this app required before they allowed you to use it. You need to read where your information can be used to the advertiser and whomever else they want under the privacy information link they gave to you but you likely never even clicked on! Then do you know what these CS app developers did after I decided to click the X on that SURVEY page and not accept it and take a different one?? They prevented me from watching ANY FURTHER ADS and put up that splash screen that says “there is currently nothing to watch...” not only in the tokens section but in the coins section as well! that was about an hour ago, and they are stopping my ability from earning any more coins as well, because I was an uncooperative trained seal who realized the difference between ADS and SURVEYS with my personal info being sent out to whoever they feel like! I just tried it again, to earn a token in the store, and it worked for ONE ad, and then it stopped me again. They must be trying to train me to be a good little user to make me not reject any of their surveys in the future, or one of them accidentally got by and then they stopped me again. There is no way this was designed by Americans. It makes me think what else they’re doing with the information you allowed them to get by downloading this app because it doesn’t seem me they have any scruples whatsoever. The question now is, are YOU willing to act like a stupid trained seal for foreign slicksters who were banking on becoming a popular app and making money through American ignorance? How far do YOU personally go to play a GAME? (One more thing… When you open the app and you’re waiting for that little green button on the bottom to double the daily reward and it doesn’t come? They hold it back occasionally to stop you from earning coins quickly. Just wait, even up to about 30 seconds, and if you don’t touch anything on the screen it will eventually appear if you’re willing to wait for it. If you close the app without doing so, you lose your entire opportunity to earn any coins in the daily reward for that day. Also, I haven’t downloaded the last update, but you might want to sort these reviews by least favorable and look to see how many people are complaining about the new daily reward system/update. Apparently, it’s even worse than I had experienced thus far. I’m off the find other crossword apps that don’t force you to take surveys in order to play the game, since the app store is flooded with them.)
Update
by Dixter40 on 2019/01/13 13:54
Booooooo! I don’t like the new update. I have been playing this game for about three years. I had a streak of playing the daily diamond for almost two years. The new update erased those stats. Now I have nothing to play for. Thanks a lot!!!
Costumer service is inconsistent
by jakiepanda on 2019/01/12 19:11
It’s been almost one month since I’ve reached out to costumer service about tokens I never received and I keep getting a run around about what I screenshots I need to provide to prove I earned the tokens. Then they stopped answering completely.
Love this app! Lots of ads, though.
by analiese.joy on 2019/01/12 15:13
For a free app this app is great. Gameplay is difficult enough to get your brain working but not so hard that it’s completely impossible for your average joe. Only frustration is the bombardment of ads but considering it’s free it makes sense. Also for my fellow Americans: it took me a second to figure this out but this is a British crossword so there’s quite a bit of British lingo that we are not familiar with. Still manageable though. Overall love the app.
New update ruined daily puzzle
by ZB83 on 2019/01/12 12:04
The newest update to the game app has ruined your app for me. It does not keep count of the consecutive days a player has completed the daily, it runs more like the stupid main attraction level that requires in game payment to play. I hope you change it back!!!
Tokens
by srd88 on 2019/01/12 03:34
This is a great fun game, however don’t try to complete the task they give you for free tokens to play more! I’ve completed several of them and have never received a single token I even gave it some time to see if maybe they would show up later with nothing ever happening!
Useful and Maddening
by Ter-bot on 2019/01/07 04:36
Dusting off the cobwebs in my brain with this game is fun and maddening.
Disappointed
by Aliyahlove on 2019/01/03 03:41
So I downloaded coin master and completed up to and past level three to get free coins for this game. NEVER RECEIVED MY FREE COINS AND ITS BEEN ABOUT A MONTH.😡😡😡. I would check the status and it would be there waiting and now when I check the status it’s not there and the game is not listed in the free coin section anymore. Very disappointing I may just look for another crossword game.
Fun, but slow
by Kelleysparkles on 2019/01/01 21:02
Great crossword app. However, there are hardly any means to earn tokens by. Which means it takes forever to be able to play another game. Wish there were more options here.
Way too easy
by 99Hokie99 on 2018/12/31 18:38
Not challenging, clues and words very basic.
Keep working on the fine tuning, developers
by ace2u2009 on 2018/12/30 21:34
Good concept but needs work. First off, check your dictionary. The clue was “drainage ditch.” The answer should have been “dike,” but the only way the puzzle would accept it is if I subbed a “y” for the “i.” Ummm.... Second, the “progress” pop ups are annoying and insulting. “Congratulations! You found 5 three-letter words!” You have to tap several times to get back to being able to play the game. If the game is advertised to make you smarter, it should live up to its claim and not waste time with meaningless rewards. Personally I could do without the letter bank completely. May be good for a little kids’ version, but not for adults. I’ll delete the app after this, but I look forward to a better version in t(e near future.
Favorite Word game!
by Totallyawesomegirl on 2018/12/30 16:32
I play this all the time, it’s the perfect level of difficulty. It isn’t usually very hard until the last couple words but not impossibly hard. Great for when I’m bored, easy to navigate, no ads.. I love it!
A lot of British words
by DEA Fresh on 2018/12/21 16:17
This is a fun game to kill time. Puzzles aren’t too hard or too easy but there are a lot of words you don’t ever hear in the US. You won’t be able to guess these without using hints. Earning coins and tokens doesn’t take so long that you feel forced to pay money just to play. One big update it could use is being able to place letters where you want instead of having to fill out in order. Also the tiles could be a little bigger for accuracy when touching. Fun game
Ads are out of control
by Kristin8993 on 2018/12/19 05:56
Overall the game is good when it lets you play a whole puzzle. However there are ads constantly popping up when you’re in the middle of typing in an answer and almost always causing you to go to the App Store. Usually see 2-3 ads in one puzzle.
Good App with British Slang
by dhstec on 2018/12/11 02:03
Had issues with several of the questions as the use British slang. Flat out, kipping and Wellies to name a few. Had to look them up as I had no clue as to what they were asking. At least one of those type in every puzzle.
Waste of my time TWICE!
by fytlb on 2018/12/02 21:44
I had to download this app twice because it would just freeze when I tried to watch a video for tokens. And why do I have to spend on tokens when it should be free or at least let me play for them!
Token limitation
by Falling Lots on 2018/12/02 07:20
Eventually, the game will greatly reduce the rate at which you can get tokens. Tokens are how you open up new crosswords. It also apparently stopped letting me spend coins on unlocking puzzles instead. And then they’ll start offering you limited time sales on more tokens. Repeatedly. You can ignore them if you want to wait for the daily tokens. Be prepared to have to wait much longer between puzzles. Or do what I did: play it and delete the game because cheap compliance tactics aggravate you.
Uses non-words
by Catchntrout on 2018/11/30 04:51
Just no. First puzzle had about 6 “words” that don’t exist in any dictionary. Not cool.

Offensive
by Jennalea28 on 2018/11/17 21:02
One clue word was “without speech”. My husband and I are deaf and my husband does not speak just like MANY other deaf people I know. The answer was not “mute”, like I thought it was. The answer was “dumb”. In no way is my husband or any deaf persons who does not speak DUMB. Please fix ASAP.
Good game!
by Massacre1029 on 2018/11/12 06:22
Fun and keeps my brain active! Great if you love crosswords!
would be great if i were british
by MSMLEJ on 2018/11/05 15:53
i like the format and everything, but a lot of the answers are british slang, and as an american i’ve never heard
Ads ads ads and more ads
by Tacoma signed by Chuck Norris on 2018/11/04 07:30
You’ll end up watching more ads than playing. I’m very sick of it. Just going between menus, not playing, makes you watch ads. If I leave a puzzle early, bam ad. If I want to go to the main menu, bam ad! It’s just too much. The puzzles are alright, but the ads and token system is just TOO EXPLOITIVE.
Wastes your time
by Dhjvdetlbcdhkkbcd on 2018/11/03 02:49
So I was trying to get free tokens and one one of the things was like “get to level 30 on this other app and you’ll get 168 tokens. I download the app, I get to level 30, go back to my crosswords app and NO TOKENS. A huge waste of my time for literally no reason
Overall good
by bigberger123 on 2018/11/02 01:30
A nice game. Fun to tease my brain a little. Only problem I have is when I start to put in a word I know is right, the letters arnt there. I’m sure the word is “party” but there’s no Y letter available UNTIL I do another word that’s attached to it. Then go back to do party and suddenly the Y is there to finish the word. If this was fixed then I would definitely rate 5 stars. Just at least make sure all the letters are there to spell the word. I don’t want to have to come back to it and try again.
Too many ads
by phxtozotsotsoyx on 2018/10/26 13:58
If you love ads more than playing this will be you jam. If not don’t waste your time.
Decent
by mborene on 2018/10/24 20:47
It’s fun, but I’m stuck without enough tokens to play. It was fun while it lasted, but I’m moving in to a different game I can actually play.
Not bad
by Bkelleyo on 2018/10/23 21:15
I like the app sometimes I think the words are repeated too much but it is a pretty small format. Good time killer on the train.
Great app but it’s made for British people
by Holly-lueah on 2018/10/17 04:46
There’s references I did not get at all. Like rain boots are called wellies and when it asked me the old system for measuring rain....which was inches I knew I had to think of British culture when playing. Still fun tho🙂

Autoloading demo game ruins it
by zmanH2 on 2018/10/05 03:36
There is a demo game that loads when you finish a puzzle on the iPad. The problem is that it does NOT load at all and gets stuck forcing you to reload the game :(
Fun, with just enough amount of Challenge! - Update
by Konakid63 on 2018/10/04 06:14
Fun & Challenging, but not too difficult to avoid it from being frustrating! I like the fact that I can complete the puzzles when I have time. Other entertainment apps require you to "check-in daily", or complete a game before closing the app, or you will have to replay it upon returning (as an example). I may not open the app for a few months, yet I know that my material will be safe for whenever I do. UPDATE: OCT 2018 - I’m enjoying the changes (improvements, modifications) that were recently done .. except for one item. When I click on “Main Menu”, WHYYYY does the app question my decision????! To me, there’s no reason for this .. and it’s just really annoying!!! REALLY!!!!! It’s not like my decision is going to lock me in, nor cost me money; so it just doesn’t make any sense. Maybe I’m the only one ... ??
Pretty good for a free app
by moviegirl611 on 2018/07/11 05:08
I like the fact that there is a new puzzle everyday and there a few others you can play right off the bat. As other’s mentioned, the letters are given to you (some you need and some you don’t) and it took me a while to figure out that even correct letters will be cleared unless you get the entire word correct. The clues are sometimes a stretch in my opinion and sometimes they use British slang and don’t mention their doing it...had to guess “prang” today as this word is not used in the US. Overall level of difficulty is easy to moderate. Yes this is a free app so you won’t get unlimited games...you get a few and then as you play, you win tokens or points to unlock other games. I’ve been playing a good few weeks almost every day and have always had a few puzzles to play. Also with the free app, there are ads...I just wait a few secs until the little x mark shows up to close the pop up and then I return to my next crossword. Pretty nice little app.
It's lots of fun....but
by Hip Didler on 2017/08/08 23:01
This is the fourth time I've tried posting a review (so I can get 20 free tokens) and each time it never posts, so let's try again.... I play this game everyday and it's lots of fun. I like the way the game is laid out and it's easy to use. However there are a couple of issues: the amount of tokens you need to open up a new puzzle is crazy, particularly when you either have to watch ad after ad to get them, or buy them. Yes, if you come back everyday they will give you tokens, but at a certain point you would have to come back every day for 3 days straight just to have enough tokens to open 1 puzzle. The other issue is some of the words they use I've never even heard of before (I've been doing crosswords for 30+ yrs) A lot of the clues are also English (UK). Other then those issues, it's great. Now let's see if I get my free tokens!
Alright but annoying progress pop ups
by Duskwitch6 on 2018/01/27 16:34
I've been playing for a couple days and my biggest complaint is it seems that every other minute a new pop up is appearing telling me I've completed a goal in the quest - "wow, you found a word starting with S? Congrats! Let's interrupt your gameplay to tell you and make you tap several times to get back to it!" I don't care. And the game decides what words to give me so it's not like I've done anything special. Just show me the goals when I open a puzzle and show me when I win tokens for meeting goals. Otherwise it's alright, I've been having fun. I'd prefer not to see the set of letters it provides for each word until I tap to reveal them because it makes it too easy. I've played enough jumbled word games that my brain automatically picks words out of them, so I have to cover them up with my finger if I want an actual crossword experience and not a jumbled letter game. I'd like to see an option so you could choose your preference.

Fun but...
by monie1952 on 2017/08/30 18:31
I enjoy the puzzles but cost of new ones versus time it takes to get more is too high. Looks like there's a limit of 10 tokens to get at the rate of 3 minutes per token. But that eliminates a lot of puzzles because you quickly run out of puzzles that cost 10 or less tokens. Also I can never get free tokens by watching videos because it crashes either before video starts or right before video ends. Frustrating. Update: nothing has changed. Doesn't seem that reviews make much difference to the game developers. I've gone about as far as I can with the biggest puzzle since I can't get enough tokens to do at least a third of them. I'll work on the worlds tallest until I run out of options. I'd like to be able to complete these but if I have to open everyday for a week and not play just to get enough tokens for one section it really isn't worth it to me. I'll move on to other crossword apps.
Fun and challenging
by ALP735735 on 2017/08/21 14:04
I read several of the other reviews for this game, and I went into the game with an open mind. So many times it seems that people want to play games nonstop, without anything to remind them that they should put their phone or tablet down (such as running out of tokens or waiting for a timer to expire). When I read reviews about how few tokens that you were given, but you get more tokens the following day I thought this was probably one of those situations. I am not one of those people that cannot put my phone down, but I still get frustrated with how few tokens you are given compared to the number of tokens required to play each game. The gameplay itself is very fun, there have been a handful of times that I had to use the hint, which costs 300 tokens for one letter, and after you beat an entire puzzle you might possibly get those 300 tokens back. This does not seem like an even exchange. If you only get 300 tokens when you solve an entire puzzle, it seems that 300 tokens should solve the entire word for you, rather than just give you one letter!!! Having said those things I do still enjoy playing the game, I just have to overlook those shortcomings of the game.
Fun Game
by HocusAndPocus123 on 2017/11/13 02:08
Not happy with the fact it cost coins to play and then so many coins used for hints is ridiculous and only get one letter for the use of the hint. Some of the words are way out in left field never heard of them so have to cheat on the game just to be able to go on to next level or stay stuck because you run out of coins the game is fun and can be addicting if the issues get fixed plus would like more color choices more vivid and also hate that when you click on a box the tokens for a box are all different and scattered all around if your going to do different ones put them on different levels or rows so we can chose where to go instead of searching for the less token ones to play and it takes more time we just want to play not search to play if we wanted to search we would find a search and find game instead
Not bad, but..
by Opinion02122 on 2017/07/17 16:10
I have only played the "easy" puzzles. And, even in the "easy" puzzles they use words that I've never seen, or heard of, in my long life. I hate puzzles that use words you've never heard of, and, though I only found a few per puzzle, so far, most of these puzzles have them. There are also spelling errors in the clues, and answers! Scummage for scrimmage in one puzzle. Some puzzles have clues that refer to "starred" clues that are part of another clue. But there ARE NO starred clues! So what's that about? Seems that some of these were written for printed puzzles, where some clues WERE starred, and the author never checked them before submitting them to this app. The other words can still be challenging and fun when you figure them out, so I'll still play, but it has flaws.
Fun but slow!
by Seth Draven on 2018/05/18 08:00
This crossword app is great, I love how massive it is—there are so many puzzles! My only issue is that the green tokens take a little too long to stack up when you play every day and are trying to progress through/unlock the more token-costly levels. I’m only really writing this review because they’ll toss 20 green tokens your way if you leave a review. Overall it’s fun and just the right amount of challenging. Also, however, many puzzles have the same exact answer in them that they had in the puzzle right before that one, which gets old fast. But like I said, it’s a huge grid of puzzles; for free you can’t really expect ‘em all to have different answers for each and every clue.
Fun but requires a ton of patience
by atristacrat on 2017/07/12 18:34
It's very fun. But apparently once you reach a certain point you can only get tokens by either purchasing them or by coming back to the game each day and earning free ones by watching videos or responding to ads/surveys. This makes it very slow to build up. What can I say? I guess I'm not as patient as I think I am, because I want to complete the board but I can't due to the decreased flow of tokens. I used to get them all the time through completing puzzles and being given bonus ones where you pay in coins to complete it in exchange for a tokens reward. Now I don't seem to have that option. So if you don't mind limiting yourself to one puzzle per day or even per week (depending on how many tokens it costs you to open it)... you'll be very happy with this game/app.
Fun Puzzles
by Abqaiq67 on 2017/08/10 07:05
I was playing game when it suddenly changed format. Interesting. Still hate that I've had to start over so many times. 😘 Like the puzzles just wish it would save when I have to get a new phone so I could finally finish it. I'm adding this!!!! I had to get a new phone again and this is the ONLY app that didn't back anything up. VERY DISAPPOINTED as I like this game but am fed up with having to keep starting over (especially when I was almost done). What's the point!!! I'm really disappointed that when I got a new phone and had to download this app again I lost ALL the games I had finished and all the coins and tokens I had collected. I backed everything up and most apps brought back up all I had done/ collected. Also I continue to get this message when I click to get reward for posting to Twitter. Whoa there! There is no request token for this page. That's the special key we need from applications asking to use your Twitter account. Please go back to the site or application that sent you here and try again; it was probably just a mistake. Go to Twitter. Well, I'm finally a few games from completion. Hopefully I get done for once. Had for more crosswords to play.
Love this crossword game
by cats68 on 2017/11/03 12:48
I’ve been playing this for awhile and had completely finished both the regular game and the tower. Well had to get a new phone and this app didn’t transfer like some of my other games, but that’s fine with me because I get to go through it all again. There are days when I’m too busy to play so just clicking on the game to get credit and coins is very handy. I was able to build up my coins rather quickly. I also like that there are days when I can play and they have the special one that you can use tokens for and get coins. Only complaint is that once you have finished both the puzzles there isn’t another board to go to.
Fun, if the Ads Stop
by ptruby16 on 2017/12/14 22:55
I'm only here for the 20 tokens tbh. I wanted a free to play crossword app with lots of puzzles to pass the time. This app delivers pretty well. They repeat a lot of small words like END and MAD, but I get why. They need to fill up space. The worst part of the app, which isn't the token/coin system (they kinda need a way to keep people from solving all of them at once), is the saturation of ads. Every time you go back into the Map View from a particular puzzle, they give you an ad. If you complete a puzzle, they show an ad. The ads you watch for extra coins and tokens are even longer, but those are optional and I guess if I click on those it's my own fault. Basically, if they reduced the ads even 25% that would be fine. Otherwise fun app.
Addictive! But limited
by Muse1975 on 2017/08/29 10:07
Love the game but I'm facing the same issue as all the other reviewers...too few tokens rewarded each day as compared to the massive amount of tokens required to open a new puzzle. Currently, I have to open the game each day for a few measly tokens in order to play on. At the rate I'm going, it'll be at least 2-4 days before I can play 1 puzzle (which I usually complete in a matter of minutes). Just doesn't seem right. Of course I can always buy the tokens but some puzzles cost as much as 30 or 40 tokens each. There's an offer of $9.99 for a 1000 tokens - which is a lot for a crossword puzzle. And I haven't done the math but I'm not even sure if that's enough to complete the game. There used to be a feature where I could exchange coins instead of tokens for a fresh puzzle but that seems to have gone away. Why award us coins when there's no use for it anymore? Please bring back the coin exchange option!! Those things aside, I love the game and can play it all day. Maybe this is just the developer's way to force me to pace myself!
Fun, but limited!
by catone3 on 2017/07/22 07:29
I have to play this every day to earn tokens for free by watching advertisements because I don't want to buy tokens just to play a "free" game. But I am limited on how much I can play because the game has limits as to how many tokens you can earn everyday! As the puzzles get harder they require more tokens to unlock. You can only watch five 30 second video advertisements daily to get a few free tokens. The videos are so repetitive. Ugh! I wish the game would let you earn more tokens and faster! I am almost done with the whole game ... I'm glad they added the tallest puzzle cause I was wondering what I was going to do next! Lol
Keep working on the fine tuning, developers
by ace2u2009 on 2018/12/30 21:34
Good concept but needs work. First off, check your dictionary. The clue was “drainage ditch.” The answer should have been “dike,” but the only way the puzzle would accept it is if I subbed a “y” for the “i.” Ummm.... Second, the “progress” pop ups are annoying and insulting. “Congratulations! You found 5 three-letter words!” You have to tap several times to get back to being able to play the game. If the game is advertised to make you smarter, it should live up to its claim and not waste time with meaningless rewards. Personally I could do without the letter bank completely. May be good for a little kids’ version, but not for adults. I’ll delete the app after this, but I look forward to a better version in t(e near future.
Okay...
by Cat1131 on 2018/01/05 03:35
So, this game can be really fun. However, it’s also really frustrating. There are a lot of words used MULTIPLE times (example: “sweets” is used at least ten times so far). Some of the clues are extremely bizarre and don’t make sense. (Field = world ??) Earning tokens is a nightmare. I downloaded an app and played for 30+ minutes to get over 300 tokens... and didn’t get them. Don’t count on support ever responding to you. Some of the quests are nearly impossible. 3 words with the letter Q? It took me about 25 puzzles to get that one. And I’m not sure how the timer quests work... they don’t accurately represent how long I’ve played. When I asked, no one ever responded. It could be such a great game...but it doesn’t feel like the developers are willing to put in the time to get there.
Yes and no
by cswrawr on 2018/02/10 05:03
Fairly entertaining, has kept my attention well. You need to either be English or an Anglophile to get 90% of the informal words. Calling it a giant crossword is a misnomer as it's actually a few hundred tiny crosswords and the number of hints and words that repeat is crazy. I've typed in "spade" "clever" and "tears" at least a half a dozen times each. There's more repeat words than unique ones. And I agree with other reviews stating the amount of coins to open some of them is too high, particularly when half the time the ads to earn coins freeze up and the app has to be crashed resulting in no extra coins.
Not enough tokens
by Karen - Nc on 2018/03/20 19:24
I enjoyed playing the puzzles until rounds cost over 14 tokens, which is half of the "Big" board. The max stored is 10, with an option to earn up to 5 tokens per day for watching ads. You also win tokens by completing quests, which are things like, "find 5 words ending with" a random letter. There is a chance to play a special round for tokens, signified by a rotating coin on the board. I've gotten one opportunity in 25 consecutive days of play. I got hopeful when the "tower" board offered rounds under 10 tokens, but that didn't last a second round. Really, this app is fun for a week or two. Then you just check in long enough to collect tokens (some rounds are 50 tokens).
Ends up Pay to play
by Elevert on 2017/10/04 21:11
I love the idea and solved almost half of the puzzles before I started having issues being able to afford new puzzles. Each puzzle cost tokens and you don't earn them for free fast enough. The ads are already annoying after completing every puzzle. At first they let you buy puzzles with coins which earn you tokens on completion but at a certain point you can't buy any more with coins. Also on the tallest puzzle it makes it seem like you can buy a puzzle with coins, but when you try it just says to complete the current chapter. So coins become useless unless you want to eliminate/solve letters for a clue. Fun at first but don't waste your time. They should make plenty of money on the annoying ads but instead want to make more money on selling tokens as well.
Fun enough
by Danish42 on 2017/07/22 09:04
Uses a lot of "proper" English terms, which may be unfamiliar to some. Sometimes the clue suggests a verb, but the answer is a noun. I'm usually a completionist for games, but don't think I'll follow through with this. As other reviews note, the game becomes slow-going once you reach a certain tier of puzzles and coins/tokens are harder to earn. Heck, wrote this just for the 20 free tokens. Ads pop up between almost every screen, though that's commonplace in a lot of games now anyways. Overall, it gives me something to do that's a bit more challenging and intelligent than a Bejeweled knock-off.
Extremely Excessive Ads
by Marine8914 on 2018/09/21 01:15
Definitely one of the better crossword puzzle apps. If it weren’t for the nonstop ads it would be the best. I understand free apps run ads to make money but this is extremely excessive. You open the app, you get an ad. You enter one of the boards, you get an ad. You complete a puzzle, you get an ad. You leave a puzzle and go to the main menu, you guessed it! Another ad!! Even cutting the amount of ads in half or even by a third, would make it a lot better. The only other issue I have encountered is that some of the clues make absolutely no sense because the answer they are looking for isn’t a correct answer for that clue.
Finally, a crossword puzzle I like!
by Sweet Bre on 2017/11/06 18:43
I was Looking for a crossword puzzle game that would be challenging and fun at the same time. I’ve tried many, but this is the only game that’s held my interest. The only thing is, I don’t like the fact that I have to use tokens to level up to new puzzles. I thought once the puzzle was completed I could keep leveling up to new ones —I was wrong. Besides that small Hang-up, I’m giving this game 5 stars, which is something I rarely do. P.S. I think the tokens could be used to help the player —sort of like power ups.
It would be better if.....
by DiRosie61 on 2019/03/17 00:07
You gave TOKENS for every puzzle you complete! There’s NO WAY to get tokens (which are needed to play other crosswords and you don’t give the option to watch videos to get tokens!) and miraculously when you complete a challenge, you get MAYBE 2-3 tokens and a crap load of coins! You need 7 or more tokens to play a crossword. That’s just a sleazy way to get ppl to BUY the tokens! So when you do that, most ppl with connecting brain cells, see the writing on the wall and they move on to other crosswords that don’t do that. Although I love the game, I won’t buy tokens for that reason. You took a great game and made it all about the money.
Improvement, Perhaps.
by NotQuiteAntiquatedButClose on 2017/07/15 08:20
I'm not claiming any MENSA DNA, but finally the several new puzzles I've done have contained new, multisyllabic, challenging words. I haven't relied on using Wordplay (or any other on-line CW help) so my times aren't remarkable. But, at the same time, my goals have changed. I want to become more self-reliant. On-line puzzle help programs remind me of SNIPER programs used to give some eBay bidders an unfair advantage, for example. Would be nice if these crossword puzzles had a completely even playing field. In any event, I am having more fun while finally experiencing frustration with these games. It's great.
Love this game
by Zacker001 on 2017/07/25 04:52
I love this game i play it all the time! Its not too hard but not easy and the fact that you can buy letters is great along with the free coins you get for watching a commercial is good because you can use the coins to buy new letters without spending any real money... lets face it, if it wasn't for that i would have deleted this app long ago! But i love it just the way it is so don't go wrecking it by changing it around! It's great as is... keep up the good work now, about those 20 free tokens? Ummm yeah, wheres those tokens again?
Fun, but annoying
by BbForever4512 on 2017/09/10 21:00
I am posting this review purely for the 20 tokens it's supposed to give me. I enjoy playing this whenever I have time to kill, and it's really useful if you have to stand in a long line. It's the BEST for amusement park waits. Also, since I think it's based in the U.K., the hints for English slang words are really challenging and have some pretty funny answers if you're used to U.S. English. However, wracking up "tokens" is frustrating if you don't want to shell out your own cash for them. I have literally thousands of "coins" and have no way to spend them on anything useful.
Fun but a bit nerve wracking
by LABete100 on 2017/07/12 20:56
I like this game. Most of the words are easy, but it does make you think of the answers since there isn't as much crossover between the across and down squares as in normal crosswords. My only complaint is that I'm really not sure of the coin/token usage rules. I would play more, but I don't want to end up inadvertently getting charged real money for purchases I didn't mean to make. The new tower puzzle is interesting, but it's downright mean to have the spinning coin "token" puzzles turn out to be locked unless I first pay for all of the "tower" puzzles!
Enjoyable crossword varieties
by Dcamonkeys on 2019/07/08 15:30
I’ve played this game for several months and have been enjoying the variety of puzzles offered, although I’ve completed all of the Daily Diamonds, so will have to work on the rest of the puzzles. I’m enjoying the Fact of the Day, but wish I could see those that I’ve completed so I can access them again after I’ve forgotten them. Just be aware that the creators must be British, judging by the slang/informal terms used. I’ve tried other crossword apps, but this is the one that I’ve stuck with.
Frustratingly fun
by L@ur3n 123456789012345 on 2017/11/16 03:27
The puzzles are fun, though they reuse words way too much. I got really into it, until the number of tokens required to play the game exceeded 10 tokens, which is the most you can earn automatically. After you complete a puzzle, you get either coins (95%) or tokens (5%). And only every other day do they allow you to watch 5 videos to earn a token each. The option to earn more tokens for free doesn’t work. You don’t download an app and open it, etc and it doesn’t credit you the tokens. Bottom line is I completed over 300 puzzles and now I’m stuck. It’s a broken system.
Fun but may require willpower
by Soccabeya on 2017/07/15 02:44
It's a fun game and as crosswords go it's a good challenge without being impossible. The only downside is it costs tokens to play each puzzle and so you kind of have to pace yourself because you only earn so many tokens per day. You also earn tokens for winning quests, but at a certain point you can beat all the quests and still need tokens. So if you don't want to pay for tokens, you just need to pace yourself so you don't use up all your tokens.
Great game!
by Crickette USA on 2018/05/04 11:56
This is a great crossword puzzle. It’s fun, easy, and a perfect way to spend some downtime. I have to say that being in America, I don’t always get the clues for some of the words we don’t normally use here, but that makes it more interesting with needing to use “reason” with how words are structured in order to complete the squares. It’s also fun to learn a vocabulary of someplace other than the US. I also love the daily crossword; I’m up to about 250 consecutive days! I’d recommend this app to anyone who loves crosswords.
Really good but..
by Erika199973 on 2017/08/25 22:33
I've been playing this for a long time and have beaten the original puzzles. With the update they added the tallest crossword or something to that extent and with these puzzles (which I think are more challenging) I don't get any sort of reward when I complete them. So my coins and tokens are just dwindling and there's no way to get any back sans the daily puzzles whose payout is dismal at best. I'm wondering if it's just a glitch but it should be resolved. Other than that I love the game and will continue to play for a long time!
Fun but frustrating
by Over-obligated User on 2017/07/14 02:59
I love the challenge of crosswords. This ap meets that goal, but it is difficult to play without purchasing tokens. Since I will not pay to play, it's taking some time to complete the puzzle. I'm relying on the daily small supply of tokens and a few provided free by viewing advertising and videos. The free tokens often come with the requirement that I sift through advertising. And many do not provide the promised tokens. Quite frustrating. Once I have the satisfaction of completing my current game, I will likely delete the ap in favor of a more user friendly crossword game.
Becomes Unplayable Unless you buy more tokens.
by TMann34 on 2019/08/25 18:20
You can play free for quite awhile. It costs you tokens to open the new puzzles. You have a bank of ten that refill with time. Puzzles start costing more the further you progress. Then when you get down to around 800 puzzles left the puzzles cost 11 tokens. So in order to get more than 10 you must purchase or wait the 24 hours to play one puzzle. It’s a great app and the words get to be quite challenging after awhile. But why increase the cost to where you must pay to play? Doesn’t that defeat the purpose of a free app?
Interesting
by Debster r on 2017/07/14 19:14
I enjoy this game. It is interesting and just challenging enough to keep me engaged. The one downfall it says free but it really wants you to spend money on the tokens. Some of them take so much that I can only play daily a small amount to keep earning them . The coins really do nothing. Occasion you can use them to buy them. The ads are sometimes annoying particularly now that they have sound. It also tends to lock up. I am almost finished with the whole grid and am anxious to see what happens.
Pohpu
by Pohpu on 2018/03/06 22:51
Love the puzzle, work it daily. Some new puzzles would be great as I seem to get the same ones often. Also you surely could be a lot more generous with Tokens. The new puzzle is very confusing!! More explanation would help out. I'm about to give up on it. Do not understand the new puzzle, more explanation would be nice!! Plus, more tokens please!! I completed my last puzzle entirely, nothing!! I had to delete it and re app?.. do get nothing for completing an entire puzzle?. Some prize should be considered. I lost tokens and coins!,,
Slow-building fun
by Mama3bucks on 2017/07/25 15:12
As a lot of the other reviewers have stated, the tokens you need to purchase new puzzles are a little hard to come by. That being said, I love having this app on my phone because it's good for a quick daily puzzle fix. The puzzles aren't too challenging, the coins to purchase hints are easy to come by, and the amount of puzzles is great, too. Love it! On a side note, my US friends-the answers are sometimes different from our word choice-so you'll have to look up their British counterparts.
Overall good game
by 01of03 on 2018/03/20 06:10
Game is great - almost all the clues are well written (a couple here and there don’t make sense, but mostly fine), and it’s much more modern and straightforward than other crosswords. I’ve played this game for a few months now and I’ve enjoyed it. the downside to this game: It’s hard to get through it without spending a little money. You don’t necessarily HAVE to spend money to get farther - you can get by with tokens from the daily reward - but it’s more difficult down the line.
Simple fun is the best!
by bluegrasscotty on 2017/08/04 17:57
Very fun to play. Simple enough you don't have to strain the brain, but just enough to keep your melon sharp! Fun for the family. Easy enough my seven year old can join in. I don't think you'll be disappointed with this game! Scott Just keeps getting better! I've got my wife & 7 year old son hooked on Crossword! Love it!! I really like the added puzzle feature of token and chips for solving puzzles. Feel my mind just getting sharper and quick!
Too many ads
by Jmbogli on 2019/02/08 02:12
I love this game and have been playing almost daily however I’m getting to the point of deleting because of how many ads there are. It is literally constant. You can’t go back to the main menu without sitting through two advertisements. I actually went into all the settings to see if I could pay for the game and remove ads but unfortunately even that’s not an option. I really hope the developers take these reviews into consideration because the ads are single handedly ruining the game.
Hours of fun
by JonahPro on 2017/07/23 16:51
Have played this game for, literally, hours on end. As a retired guy, I think this helps keep me sharper, having to constantly be thinking whenever I have this app open. And it's a great way to relax too. However, after you reach certain point they make it VERY hard to get tokens and I absolutely refuse to purchase them. They even removed the spinning Prize Puzzle after awhile making it almost impossible to get Tokens.
Overall good
by bigberger123 on 2018/11/02 01:30
A nice game. Fun to tease my brain a little. Only problem I have is when I start to put in a word I know is right, the letters arnt there. I’m sure the word is “party” but there’s no Y letter available UNTIL I do another word that’s attached to it. Then go back to do party and suddenly the Y is there to finish the word. If this was fixed then I would definitely rate 5 stars. Just at least make sure all the letters are there to spell the word. I don’t want to have to come back to it and try again.
Was great but each version is getting worse
by mokumax on 2019/02/07 13:49
I find myself quitting the app more than anything these days. It used to be you’d get an annoying ad 1-2 times per couple of games. Now you get 2 ads just to play 1 game and they are being deceptive using the App Store screen shot with a very small faint X in the corner to close it. Do you think you’ll get more downloads of the apps you advertise by trying to be deceptive? If we can’t trust you to deliver an ad that allows us to make the choice instead of trying to be dishonest about it do you think we’ll trust you? Shouldn’t have updated. 4 versions back was tolerable but as I said, it’s getting worse.
What Fun!
by Mobiustrip on 2017/09/02 14:42
Hot dog! Loads of challenges. Whoop dang... can I get my 20 tokens now? I'm back! It's still fun! Game has to come out of the U.K., some of the slang (inf) words were bizarre! Update: It's clear now what the game developers want, they want me to buy tokens. Watching the advertisements and the ad bar isn't enough. The daily tokens and earned coins are not enough to sustain game play. As you progress through the grid and exhaust the lower priced games tokens become scarce, unless you want to shell out some cash. Ah, good old greed. Adios "Crosswords"!
Only one complaint
by BRwoodcrafts on 2018/07/09 03:26
Love the game but when I get low on tokens it seems to take forever to find another game with the amount of tokens I have. I have almost deleted the game from my phone a couple times when I spend several minutes trying to find a game to work with the amount of tokens I have. It seems you make a lot of coins but hardly ever tokens. Make it give you tokens one game and coins the next. A very fun game to play. I hope I don’t have to give it up.
Fun!
by Rapunzl on 2017/08/20 23:33
I love this game and think it's the best one out there in terms of how it is laid out and how it plays. Very easy to use and a great way to relax. The only thing that keeps it from being a 5-star game is needing to buy tokens to move forward and coins to get hints for those tougher words. Getting just 10 coins and having to wait for them to be given one by one is a problem. Wish they would fix the whole purchasing issue and make the game more affordable.
Repetitive answers
by Unfoldednut on 2017/12/12 21:24
This game is fun. It provides everything you should expect from a crossword app, but it's less fun when "hurt" is an answer on two consecutive puzzles that I do. I'm also not crazy about the tokens to play feature. There are already ads between each puzzle (double ads you have to scour the screen to find the "x" to close), so requiring tokens to play one puzzle seems almost greedy. It's good for killing time though, so if you don't mind waiting for tokens to refresh, it's worth downloading.
Rph
by PzlLvr57 on 2017/08/16 17:14
Look forward to working a puzzle every day...that's right one daily because to open a new puzzle you often times must have an unreasonable amount of tokens. Even if you watch the same tired ads everyday to earn tokens, I am now nearly finished but don't have enough tokens. I will not buy them! Also, one must be familiar with British slang to figure out some of the words. Gave this 4 stars because I love crosswords and you do have to use your brain!

This app would be great......
by TheWagonBaron on 2019/10/15 00:02
If they’re weren’t ads at almost every transition. I get putting ads into your game to either help support it or get people to buy an ad-free version but this app is overkill. Want to load a puzzle? Watch this ad. Want to go back to the main screen after finishing a puzzle? Here’s an ad. Accidental click out of a puzzle? Another ad and then a bonus ad when you try to go back into the puzzle. It’s. Too. Much. You shouldn’t have an ad on every single transition. I uninstalled because of this.

Ok app
by jetsetting teacher on 2019/09/21 00:34
Repetitious but fun enough to while away 10 mins. There are a few inaccuracies that I’ve found so far though which is annoying to me. The most glaring recently is a clue that said Middle Eastern capital, and the answer was Dubai, but having lived in Abu Dhabi for two years, I know Dubai is not the capital of the UAE, Abu Dhabi is. Dubai is just the most well-known of the 7 emirates. There have been a few others as well, but for the most part the clues are accurate, if not always good, and often repetitive.
Val
by val.L32 on 2019/09/18 15:00

British Developer?
by Noizeenoiz on 2019/09/10 16:42
I love word games, so initially I liked this. What annoyed me were some of the word choices. This game must have British developers because several of the words in each puzzle were not known to those in the US. I love BritBox which helped some, but even with hints (which cost coins that are not easily obtained unless you spend real money) I would end up making up something until it was right. When that worked, it ended up being a word I had never heard of even though I have a good vocabulary. More frustrating than fun.
Decent for free
by Chrish62704 on 2019/09/03 21:55
It’s a decent crossword puzzle app with plenty to keep you busy. However, the clues often use foreign idioms that make the answers difficult, unless you have a pretty good understanding of British slang. Apparently, kitting means asleep and a common household shrub is a cheese plant, neither of which are terms used often at all in the states. Either way, if you can get past this, it’s a decent crossword app.

by JazmynFL on 2019/08/23 23:56
What’s up with all the “quests” and side junk. I just wanted a plain old ordinary crossword for adult players, not a kiddy game.
Awesome game!
by DrBarr on 2019/08/10 15:23
The only thing I would recommend is maybe not showing ads for games I already own or doubling the tokens awarded. I love this game and will never stop playing! Well done.

Not Worth It!!!
by alien.zeebo on 2019/07/30 03:50
You will spend more time watching adds than you will working puzzles and the puzzles are not very good. Find another crossword app unless you like watching the same adds over and over and over again.
Love this app

What a great way to spend your downtime!!
It could be better
by Marvel-60 on 2019/07/19 01:05
It’s fun, but if it costs tokens to play then it should award tokens when you solve a puzzle, but it only awards coins. You should be able to buy tokens with the coins, but you can’t.

I’ve played this game for several months and have been enjoying the variety of puzzles offered, although I’ve completed all of the Daily Diamonds, so will have to work on the rest of the puzzles. I’m enjoying the Fact of the Day, but wish I could see those that I’ve completed so I can access them again after I’ve forgotten them. Just be aware that the creators must be British, judging by the slang/informal terms used. I’ve tried other crossword apps, but this is the one that I’ve stuck with.
Suggestion
by Dwjonz on 2019/07/04 16:53
I like the variety of the different games you offer. I would suggest that when a game is finished that we be able to look at the finished puzzle to “admire” our hard work. Just make it so we hit a button to move off to the next puzzle.
Games okay but DO NOT fill out a survey for free coins
by Mwhaley919 on 2019/06/30 16:02
Seriously. I filled out a survey to get a few game coins for free and now my number constantly gets bombarded with spam calls and texts. There’s nothing I can do to stop it. There are no options to stop the calls or texts. Seriously annoying and went from liking this game to despising it.
Too many ads. Way too many.
by chipodos on 2019/06/19 19:29
All in all this is a good app. That said, the ads have been ever-increasing in regularity. Words of advice: (1) ALWAYS use coins to open a puzzle if possible. You'll earn coins much easier than tokens. (2) make sure you get your 5 free tokens and 1250 free coins EVERY day. You'll need the tokens to finish this game and the coins just make it a little easier.
Daily Diamond puzzle

Pay to Play Crap
by A Fatigued Celebrity on 2019/06/05 01:30
Free tokens are too infrequent, or require watching multiple ads (3+) just to get enough to work another puzzle, or you can pay for tokens. It’s a free app, I understand you have to get your money somehow, but you have so many in-app ads you could do away with tokens and just make the puzzles free to play at your own pace. Instead, I am deleting and moving on. I will never pay for crap like this that I can get truly free elsewhere in other apps.
Full of ads
by Smitherz65 on 2019/06/01 23:35
Games are fun but not worth the time putting up with all of the video ads.
You have to
by psugrla87 on 2019/06/01 15:52
You have to use your hard earned coins to play another crossword. Not for me, game was discarded
I really liked this until
by Pamkl on 2019/05/31 00:22
I did enough puzzles to no longer earn tokens and stopped being able to pay with coins. Yes, I get a few each day as a reward, but they go fast. Wish I could trade in my coins for tokens. The number of ads is annoying as well. When I run out of tokens, I'll be deleting the app. Not worth buying them.
Good game but sooo many ads
by dfc0972 on 2019/05/20 18:54
Want to play a game? Watch an ad. Finish it? Watch another. Play another game? Watch another ad after just watching one. The quests that earn you 250 coins often have requirements that you spend 500 or more on hints. No reason to do the quests.
Very fun and entertaining

Not really free
by mydik927 on 2019/05/06 09:06
Okay, so the download is free, they give you ten token through wait time, but after you complete so many puzzles, the token cost goes up into the 20s, but you max your wait tokens out at 10, I figured the might reward you tokens for completing a puzzle, nope, they give you coins!!! Like whipty doo, so they are subliminally forcing you to either wait extensive time between puzzles( checking in every day for daily bonuses) or buying tokens
One problem
by deet1738 on 2019/05/03 05:22
This problem arose about a year ago. I love this time passer and have completed the main one before this problem started. One I began the tallest, after an update, and once you complete a level, there’s no hoo rah... I know it’s been a while since that update, but before then it was like yay, another one down here’s some coins and a good job. Now it just tells me to go back to the home screen... how unclimatic is that!

Daily Diamond
by TinderIsGarbageNow on 2019/04/21 14:40
AFTER you have completed ALL the Daily Diamond puzzles, maybe stop the notification that you have one available to you. I want to see the star at the bottom that I’ve completed them all and no notification, or make more fresh ones. The feeling of accomplishment is nice, and this prevents it from happening.
Too many bugs/changes
by slytherin_______ on 2019/04/18 10:10
Lately whenever I try and double my daily rewards it doesn’t give me any at all, and after I completed quite a few puzzles in the World’s Biggest category it stopped letting me pay for puzzles with coins. I loved it when I first started but this is too many inconveniences.
Weird words
by Datdudeukno on 2019/04/17 07:57
There are a lot of slang, informal, and basically unused words (titter, snigger, anorak). Probably very British. Clues are very weird, or worded very strangely.
Oh my gosh whereeee did all my coins go??

Great app except haven’t had any puzzles to do for months. When will you create more puzzles to be done?
Place not Saved
by BluesHarpist on 2019/04/04 23:34
The most annoying thing about the app is that the last puzzle you worked on has to be searched for each time you’ve closed the app. Some of the same hints are repeated, too. That has always annoyed me about most crossword publications, though.
Auto sends to App Store
by Amz9898 on 2019/04/04 07:00
In the middle of doing the puzzle, the app glitches and just keeps sending you to the App Store. I uninstalled. Pathetic.

Paid for No Ads
by Suecq58 on 2019/03/18 08:40
I enjoy the game, but the ads are annoying, so I paid for NO ADS. Yet, ads are still popping up. It’s very frustrating! I would have given 4/5 stars if the ads weren’t still popping up.
It would be better if.....
by DiRosie61 on 2019/03/17 00:07
You gave TOKENS for every puzzle you complete! There’s NO WAY to get tokens (which are needed to play other crosswords and you don’t give the option to watch videos to get tokens!) and miraculously when you complete a challenge, you get MAYBE 2-3 tokens and a crap load of coins! You need 7 or more tokens to play a crossword. That’s just a sleazy way to get ppl to BUY the tokens! So when you do that, most ppl with connecting brain cells, see the writing on the wall and they move on to other crosswords that don’t do that. Although I love the game, I won’t buy tokens for that reason. You took a great game and made it all about the money.
Good when it’s working

I like the crosswords themselves, but this app is very buggy. It displays ads that force you to play their games and then crash the app. I don’t mind watching videos for free tokens or coins, but forcing me to play the game and go to the App Store just to get back to my game and have it still stuck in the ad is really frustrating. Not sure it’s worth the puzzle itself
Great game
by MattTC11 on 2019/03/08 19:01
Fun and addictive. However, I wish there was an option to get rid of ads, they become quite annoying.
No satisfaction, very frustrating
by Mae_User on 2019/03/02 18:03
I was stuck on the last word, had my whole family working on it to figure it out. One of us tapped a few random letters in and accidentally solved the puzzle, and the whole screen was immediately covered by a completion dialogue. I cant go back to see the completed puzzle, and we’ll never know what that last answer was. At least with a newspaper puzzle, you get the answers along with the next paper. :( I’m uninstalling this very frustrating app.
Fun at first...
by JLRMforever on 2019/03/01 23:07
But there isn’t a way to get free tokens (can’t watch ads to get them anymore), & I refuse to buy them! I can only play it a few minutes each day. Also, British Cryptics, Codewords, Word Grid are too hard, so I can’t get into Quote Falls. Tokens need to be offered with ads. Also, when you play, it helps to realize the puzzles were created from a British point-of-view. I’m nearly done & will delete the app soon.
Ok for a freebie
by BeeJayCee01 on 2019/02/25 23:48
Couldn’t believe that this is a puzzle based on words and one clue misspelled the answer! How dumb!!! FYI: A workshop clamp is a VISE, not a VICE. Pronounce with an s that is closer to a z sound, not a sibilant s.
Not getting earned tokens
by NotHappySamy on 2019/02/20 17:04
3 times now I have completed the tasks needed to earn free tokens, and have not received them. I should have received over 3000 tokens.
Fun

Could do without
by lookitsmonster on 2019/02/13 03:30
This would be a nice app game, but I really dislike that they give you like 10 letters to choose from. It makes the game very easy, and is subject to picking words out of those letter until you get the right one.
Too many ads
by Jmbogli on 2019/02/08 02:12
I love this game and have been playing almost daily however I’m getting to the point of deleting because of how many ads there are. It is literally constant. You can’t go back to the main menu without sitting through two advertisements. I actually went into all the settings to see if I could pay for the game and remove ads but unfortunately even that’s not an option. I really hope the developers take these reviews into consideration because the ads are single handedly ruining the game.
Was great but each version is getting worse
by mokumax on 2019/02/07 13:49
I find myself quitting the app more than anything these days. It used to be you’d get an annoying ad 1-2 times per couple of games. Now you get 2 ads just to play 1 game and they are being deceptive using the App Store screen shot with a very small faint X in the corner to close it. Do you think you’ll get more downloads of the apps you advertise by trying to be deceptive? If we can’t trust you to deliver an ad that allows us to make the choice instead of trying to be dishonest about it do you think we’ll trust you? Shouldn’t have updated. 4 versions back was tolerable but as I said, it’s getting worse.
Fun, great brain teaser
by Lady Alex 14 on 2019/02/01 03:47
The game is nice for those wanting to challenge themselves. It helps gets the brain going. However, I wish they wouldn’t use the same clue in different puzzles.
Repetitive with some incorrect spelling
by Gbocc on 2019/01/31 04:32
Many of the words solved for repeat on different puzzles within the same crossword “board,” with “tallest” and “war” being an inclusion in many of the puzzles. With so many words in the English language, why do any of the answers repeat? I’ve also found several spelling errors, for example: The clue “which person” should have the answer “whom,” not “who.” As a word game, spelling does matter.
Variety and Challenging
by Southern467 on 2019/01/31 02:32
Excellent Free Ap option if you enjoy crossword puzzles and similar puzzles. Ads are frequent, but not terribly long. Easy to use once you get familiar with the setup. If you watch BBC you will do very well!
New update
by cobra1027 on 2019/01/28 05:58
This was my favorite game until the new update I finished all the daily diamonds and when a new one is available there is nothing to do because they have all been completed
Not very good
by workinginacoalmine on 2019/01/25 22:52
Too many advertisements.
Enjoyed it!
by L_R_S_1994 on 2019/01/23 21:34
But I wish you could get more tokens without having to pay.
Old daily puzzle logic was better
by KittyLumpkins on 2019/01/22 17:36
Like others, I am annoyed that the update changed the logic for the daily puzzles to make it more like the main game. It is not as enjoyable now and I lost the progress I made over months.
Disappointed
by BabyG2 on 2019/01/22 06:57
You changed the game! Deleting this game!
Bad Update
by LAinMICH on 2019/01/20 20:30
I have been playing this game for over a year and have finished World’s Biggest and World’s Tallest. Had almost finished Daily Diamond when you came up with this terrible update. All my progress on Daily Diamond is gone and now all the puzzles are basically the same. At least you didn’t ruin British Cryptics. Please leave well enough alone. The ads are understandable with a free game. Not half as maddening as losing your progress.
Daily streak is gone. Deleting app
by willsmith977 on 2019/01/20 08:22
I only played for the daily streak, and the latest update removed it. Bye bye app
Love this!
by lrdnow on 2019/01/16 20:05
Been enjoying these puzzles for almost a year now. Love the different types of puzzles. One request. In the latest update you added a button at the bottom of the main page that says “Make progress-play the flashing puzzle!” The flashing puzzle tile seems to have taken the place of bonus puzzles that used to flash. Can we still get the bonus puzzles? Thanks
Ads...
by Jennamir on 2019/01/15 12:38
It now takes me longer to wait through the ads than it does to play the Daily Diamond. I don’t like the game enough to put up with that.
WARNING: Beware of SURVEY “ADS”
by Bonito apps on 2019/01/13 15:20
(First, I want to get out of the way the fact that when a clue is “without speech“ and you put the answer to the clue as “dumb“ it makes you one big unevolved MFA from a foreign country because Americans have evolved from that ancient line of thinking ages ago).... Now back to why I’m deleting this app and why should too... I went into the app’s Store to earn tokens one at a time by watching advertisements, like I have been doing for a few weeks uneventfully. The second one I watched was one I had never seen before, on a very dark plain black screen with white writing only, which was lawfirm related (local to my general area). (I have the screenshot of it still.) It asked “which of these brands have you seen online advertising for recently?“ then it listed five lawfirms with check boxes next to them, and I was to check “all that apply“. However, on the top, it said “earn your reward by answering one question.“ and right below it on the right hand side of the screen in small letters was a link with the words “privacy info.“ Now first, since when are we supposed to HAVE TO INTERACT with any “ads?” When you force users to become trained seals for your advertisers by forcing them to do tricks and turns on the “ads” you splash in their faces, you are way out of line, buster! Those are called SURVEY TASKS, not ADVERTISEMENTS! The users need to know you are demanding they perform SURVEY TASKS WITH PERSONAL INFORMATION for your advertisers/people you sell it to in order to earn one loudy coin. And what is worse?? Yes, it gets WORSE! Don’t forget about the little “privacy info“ link in small letters at the top! This app and that advertiser felt they had to give you that link on the screen by LAW (the lawyers knew that!) because it’s not just an anonymous simple little clicking of a task for you, but now the app has your personal information on who you are on your account in the app and by phone information from the app permissions you already gave it when you downloaded it, including your address book, blah blah, and all the other permissions this app required before they allowed you to use it. You need to read where your information can be used to the advertiser and whomever else they want under the privacy information link they gave to you but you likely never even clicked on! Then do you know what these CS app developers did after I decided to click the X on that SURVEY page and not accept it and take a different one?? They prevented me from watching ANY FURTHER ADS and put up that splash screen that says “there is currently nothing to watch...” not only in the tokens section but in the coins section as well! that was about an hour ago, and they are stopping my ability from earning any more coins as well, because I was an uncooperative trained seal who realized the difference between ADS and SURVEYS with my personal info being sent out to whoever they feel like! I just tried it again, to earn a token in the store, and it worked for ONE ad, and then it stopped me again. They must be trying to train me to be a good little user to make me not reject any of their surveys in the future, or one of them accidentally got by and then they stopped me again. There is no way this was designed by Americans. It makes me think what else they’re doing with the information you allowed them to get by downloading this app because it doesn’t seem me they have any scruples whatsoever. The question now is, are YOU willing to act like a stupid trained seal for foreign slicksters who were banking on becoming a popular app and making money through American ignorance? How far do YOU personally go to play a GAME? (One more thing… When you open the app and you’re waiting for that little green button on the bottom to double the daily reward and it doesn’t come? They hold it back occasionally to stop you from earning coins quickly. Just wait, even up to about 30 seconds, and if you don’t touch anything on the screen it will eventually appear if you’re willing to wait for it. If you close the app without doing so, you lose your entire opportunity to earn any coins in the daily reward for that day. Also, I haven’t downloaded the last update, but you might want to sort these reviews by least favorable and look to see how many people are complaining about the new daily reward system/update. Apparently, it’s even worse than I had experienced thus far. I’m off the find other crossword apps that don’t force you to take surveys in order to play the game, since the app store is flooded with them.)
Update
by Dixter40 on 2019/01/13 13:54
Booooooo! I don’t like the new update. I have been playing this game for about three years. I had a streak of playing the daily diamond for almost two years. The new update erased those stats. Now I have nothing to play for. Thanks a lot!!!
Costumer service is inconsistent
by jakiepanda on 2019/01/12 19:11
It’s been almost one month since I’ve reached out to costumer service about tokens I never received and I keep getting a run around about what I screenshots I need to provide to prove I earned the tokens. Then they stopped answering completely.
Love this app! Lots of ads, though.
by analiese.joy on 2019/01/12 15:13
For a free app this app is great. Gameplay is difficult enough to get your brain working but not so hard that it’s completely impossible for your average joe. Only frustration is the bombardment of ads but considering it’s free it makes sense. Also for my fellow Americans: it took me a second to figure this out but this is a British crossword so there’s quite a bit of British lingo that we are not familiar with. Still manageable though. Overall love the app.
New update ruined daily puzzle
by ZB83 on 2019/01/12 12:04
The newest update to the game app has ruined your app for me. It does not keep count of the consecutive days a player has completed the daily, it runs more like the stupid main attraction level that requires in game payment to play. I hope you change it back!!!
Tokens
by srd88 on 2019/01/12 03:34
This is a great fun game, however don’t try to complete the task they give you for free tokens to play more! I’ve completed several of them and have never received a single token I even gave it some time to see if maybe they would show up later with nothing ever happening!
Useful and Maddening
by Ter-bot on 2019/01/07 04:36
Dusting off the cobwebs in my brain with this game is fun and maddening.
Disappointed
by Aliyahlove on 2019/01/03 03:41
So I downloaded coin master and completed up to and past level three to get free coins for this game. NEVER RECEIVED MY FREE COINS AND ITS BEEN ABOUT A MONTH.😡😡😡. I would check the status and it would be there waiting and now when I check the status it’s not there and the game is not listed in the free coin section anymore. Very disappointing I may just look for another crossword game.
Fun, but slow
by Kelleysparkles on 2019/01/01 21:02
Great crossword app. However, there are hardly any means to earn tokens by. Which means it takes forever to be able to play another game. Wish there were more options here.
Way too easy
by 99Hokie99 on 2018/12/31 18:38
Not challenging, clues and words very basic.
Keep working on the fine tuning, developers
by ace2u2009 on 2018/12/30 21:34
Good concept but needs work. First off, check your dictionary. The clue was “drainage ditch.” The answer should have been “dike,” but the only way the puzzle would accept it is if I subbed a “y” for the “i.” Ummm.... Second, the “progress” pop ups are annoying and insulting. “Congratulations! You found 5 three-letter words!” You have to tap several times to get back to being able to play the game. If the game is advertised to make you smarter, it should live up to its claim and not waste time with meaningless rewards. Personally I could do without the letter bank completely. May be good for a little kids’ version, but not for adults. I’ll delete the app after this, but I look forward to a better version in t(e near future.
Favorite Word game!
by Totallyawesomegirl on 2018/12/30 16:32
I play this all the time, it’s the perfect level of difficulty. It isn’t usually very hard until the last couple words but not impossibly hard. Great for when I’m bored, easy to navigate, no ads.. I love it!
A lot of British words
by DEA Fresh on 2018/12/21 16:17
This is a fun game to kill time. Puzzles aren’t too hard or too easy but there are a lot of words you don’t ever hear in the US. You won’t be able to guess these without using hints. Earning coins and tokens doesn’t take so long that you feel forced to pay money just to play. One big update it could use is being able to place letters where you want instead of having to fill out in order. Also the tiles could be a little bigger for accuracy when touching. Fun game
Ads are out of control
by Kristin8993 on 2018/12/19 05:56
Overall the game is good when it lets you play a whole puzzle. However there are ads constantly popping up when you’re in the middle of typing in an answer and almost always causing you to go to the App Store. Usually see 2-3 ads in one puzzle.
Good App with British Slang
by dhstec on 2018/12/11 02:03
Had issues with several of the questions as the use British slang. Flat out, kipping and Wellies to name a few. Had to look them up as I had no clue as to what they were asking. At least one of those type in every puzzle.
Waste of my time TWICE!
by fytlb on 2018/12/02 21:44
I had to download this app twice because it would just freeze when I tried to watch a video for tokens. And why do I have to spend on tokens when it should be free or at least let me play for them!
Token limitation
by Falling Lots on 2018/12/02 07:20
Eventually, the game will greatly reduce the rate at which you can get tokens. Tokens are how you open up new crosswords. It also apparently stopped letting me spend coins on unlocking puzzles instead. And then they’ll start offering you limited time sales on more tokens. Repeatedly. You can ignore them if you want to wait for the daily tokens. Be prepared to have to wait much longer between puzzles. Or do what I did: play it and delete the game because cheap compliance tactics aggravate you.
Uses non-words
by Catchntrout on 2018/11/30 04:51
Just no. First puzzle had about 6 “words” that don’t exist in any dictionary. Not cool.

by Jennalea28 on 2018/11/17 21:02
One clue word was “without speech”. My husband and I are deaf and my husband does not speak just like MANY other deaf people I know. The answer was not “mute”, like I thought it was. The answer was “dumb”. In no way is my husband or any deaf persons who does not speak DUMB. Please fix ASAP.
Good game!

Ads ads ads and more ads
by Tacoma signed by Chuck Norris on 2018/11/04 07:30
You’ll end up watching more ads than playing. I’m very sick of it. Just going between menus, not playing, makes you watch ads. If I leave a puzzle early, bam ad. If I want to go to the main menu, bam ad! It’s just too much. The puzzles are alright, but the ads and token system is just TOO EXPLOITIVE.
Wastes your time
by Dhjvdetlbcdhkkbcd on 2018/11/03 02:49
So I was trying to get free tokens and one one of the things was like “get to level 30 on this other app and you’ll get 168 tokens. I download the app, I get to level 30, go back to my crosswords app and NO TOKENS. A huge waste of my time for literally no reason
Overall good
by bigberger123 on 2018/11/02 01:30
A nice game. Fun to tease my brain a little. Only problem I have is when I start to put in a word I know is right, the letters arnt there. I’m sure the word is “party” but there’s no Y letter available UNTIL I do another word that’s attached to it. Then go back to do party and suddenly the Y is there to finish the word. If this was fixed then I would definitely rate 5 stars. Just at least make sure all the letters are there to spell the word. I don’t want to have to come back to it and try again.
Too many ads
by phxtozotsotsoyx on 2018/10/26 13:58
If you love ads more than playing this will be you jam. If not don’t waste your time.
Decent
by mborene on 2018/10/24 20:47
It’s fun, but I’m stuck without enough tokens to play. It was fun while it lasted, but I’m moving in to a different game I can actually play.
Not bad
by Bkelleyo on 2018/10/23 21:15
I like the app sometimes I think the words are repeated too much but it is a pretty small format. Good time killer on the train.
Great app but it’s made for British people
by Holly-lueah on 2018/10/17 04:46
There’s references I did not get at all. Like rain boots are called wellies and when it asked me the old system for measuring rain....which was inches I knew I had to think of British culture when playing. Still fun tho🙂

Autoloading demo game ruins it

There is a demo game that loads when you finish a puzzle on the iPad. The problem is that it does NOT load at all and gets stuck forcing you to reload the game :(
Fun, with just enough amount of Challenge! - Update
by Konakid63 on 2018/10/04 06:14
Fun & Challenging, but not too difficult to avoid it from being frustrating! I like the fact that I can complete the puzzles when I have time. Other entertainment apps require you to "check-in daily", or complete a game before closing the app, or you will have to replay it upon returning (as an example). I may not open the app for a few months, yet I know that my material will be safe for whenever I do. UPDATE: OCT 2018 - I’m enjoying the changes (improvements, modifications) that were recently done .. except for one item. When I click on “Main Menu”, WHYYYY does the app question my decision????! To me, there’s no reason for this .. and it’s just really annoying!!! REALLY!!!!! It’s not like my decision is going to lock me in, nor cost me money; so it just doesn’t make any sense. Maybe I’m the only one ... ??
Pretty good for a free app
by moviegirl611 on 2018/07/11 05:08
I like the fact that there is a new puzzle everyday and there a few others you can play right off the bat. As other’s mentioned, the letters are given to you (some you need and some you don’t) and it took me a while to figure out that even correct letters will be cleared unless you get the entire word correct. The clues are sometimes a stretch in my opinion and sometimes they use British slang and don’t mention their doing it...had to guess “prang” today as this word is not used in the US. Overall level of difficulty is easy to moderate. Yes this is a free app so you won’t get unlimited games...you get a few and then as you play, you win tokens or points to unlock other games. I’ve been playing a good few weeks almost every day and have always had a few puzzles to play. Also with the free app, there are ads...I just wait a few secs until the little x mark shows up to close the pop up and then I return to my next crossword. Pretty nice little app.
It's lots of fun....but
by Hip Didler on 2017/08/08 23:01
This is the fourth time I've tried posting a review (so I can get 20 free tokens) and each time it never posts, so let's try again.... I play this game everyday and it's lots of fun. I like the way the game is laid out and it's easy to use. However there are a couple of issues: the amount of tokens you need to open up a new puzzle is crazy, particularly when you either have to watch ad after ad to get them, or buy them. Yes, if you come back everyday they will give you tokens, but at a certain point you would have to come back every day for 3 days straight just to have enough tokens to open 1 puzzle. The other issue is some of the words they use I've never even heard of before (I've been doing crosswords for 30+ yrs) A lot of the clues are also English (UK). Other then those issues, it's great. Now let's see if I get my free tokens!
Alright but annoying progress pop ups
by Duskwitch6 on 2018/01/27 16:34
I've been playing for a couple days and my biggest complaint is it seems that every other minute a new pop up is appearing telling me I've completed a goal in the quest - "wow, you found a word starting with S? Congrats! Let's interrupt your gameplay to tell you and make you tap several times to get back to it!" I don't care. And the game decides what words to give me so it's not like I've done anything special. Just show me the goals when I open a puzzle and show me when I win tokens for meeting goals. Otherwise it's alright, I've been having fun. I'd prefer not to see the set of letters it provides for each word until I tap to reveal them because it makes it too easy. I've played enough jumbled word games that my brain automatically picks words out of them, so I have to cover them up with my finger if I want an actual crossword experience and not a jumbled letter game. I'd like to see an option so you could choose your preference.

Fun but...
by monie1952 on 2017/08/30 18:31
I enjoy the puzzles but cost of new ones versus time it takes to get more is too high. Looks like there's a limit of 10 tokens to get at the rate of 3 minutes per token. But that eliminates a lot of puzzles because you quickly run out of puzzles that cost 10 or less tokens. Also I can never get free tokens by watching videos because it crashes either before video starts or right before video ends. Frustrating. Update: nothing has changed. Doesn't seem that reviews make much difference to the game developers. I've gone about as far as I can with the biggest puzzle since I can't get enough tokens to do at least a third of them. I'll work on the worlds tallest until I run out of options. I'd like to be able to complete these but if I have to open everyday for a week and not play just to get enough tokens for one section it really isn't worth it to me. I'll move on to other crossword apps.
Fun and challenging
by ALP735735 on 2017/08/21 14:04
I read several of the other reviews for this game, and I went into the game with an open mind. So many times it seems that people want to play games nonstop, without anything to remind them that they should put their phone or tablet down (such as running out of tokens or waiting for a timer to expire). When I read reviews about how few tokens that you were given, but you get more tokens the following day I thought this was probably one of those situations. I am not one of those people that cannot put my phone down, but I still get frustrated with how few tokens you are given compared to the number of tokens required to play each game. The gameplay itself is very fun, there have been a handful of times that I had to use the hint, which costs 300 tokens for one letter, and after you beat an entire puzzle you might possibly get those 300 tokens back. This does not seem like an even exchange. If you only get 300 tokens when you solve an entire puzzle, it seems that 300 tokens should solve the entire word for you, rather than just give you one letter!!! Having said those things I do still enjoy playing the game, I just have to overlook those shortcomings of the game.
Fun Game
by HocusAndPocus123 on 2017/11/13 02:08
Not happy with the fact it cost coins to play and then so many coins used for hints is ridiculous and only get one letter for the use of the hint. Some of the words are way out in left field never heard of them so have to cheat on the game just to be able to go on to next level or stay stuck because you run out of coins the game is fun and can be addicting if the issues get fixed plus would like more color choices more vivid and also hate that when you click on a box the tokens for a box are all different and scattered all around if your going to do different ones put them on different levels or rows so we can chose where to go instead of searching for the less token ones to play and it takes more time we just want to play not search to play if we wanted to search we would find a search and find game instead
Not bad, but..
by Opinion02122 on 2017/07/17 16:10
I have only played the "easy" puzzles. And, even in the "easy" puzzles they use words that I've never seen, or heard of, in my long life. I hate puzzles that use words you've never heard of, and, though I only found a few per puzzle, so far, most of these puzzles have them. There are also spelling errors in the clues, and answers! Scummage for scrimmage in one puzzle. Some puzzles have clues that refer to "starred" clues that are part of another clue. But there ARE NO starred clues! So what's that about? Seems that some of these were written for printed puzzles, where some clues WERE starred, and the author never checked them before submitting them to this app. The other words can still be challenging and fun when you figure them out, so I'll still play, but it has flaws.
Fun but slow!

This crossword app is great, I love how massive it is—there are so many puzzles! My only issue is that the green tokens take a little too long to stack up when you play every day and are trying to progress through/unlock the more token-costly levels. I’m only really writing this review because they’ll toss 20 green tokens your way if you leave a review. Overall it’s fun and just the right amount of challenging. Also, however, many puzzles have the same exact answer in them that they had in the puzzle right before that one, which gets old fast. But like I said, it’s a huge grid of puzzles; for free you can’t really expect ‘em all to have different answers for each and every clue.
Fun but requires a ton of patience
by atristacrat on 2017/07/12 18:34
It's very fun. But apparently once you reach a certain point you can only get tokens by either purchasing them or by coming back to the game each day and earning free ones by watching videos or responding to ads/surveys. This makes it very slow to build up. What can I say? I guess I'm not as patient as I think I am, because I want to complete the board but I can't due to the decreased flow of tokens. I used to get them all the time through completing puzzles and being given bonus ones where you pay in coins to complete it in exchange for a tokens reward. Now I don't seem to have that option. So if you don't mind limiting yourself to one puzzle per day or even per week (depending on how many tokens it costs you to open it)... you'll be very happy with this game/app.
Fun Puzzles
by Abqaiq67 on 2017/08/10 07:05
I was playing game when it suddenly changed format. Interesting. Still hate that I've had to start over so many times. 😘 Like the puzzles just wish it would save when I have to get a new phone so I could finally finish it. I'm adding this!!!! I had to get a new phone again and this is the ONLY app that didn't back anything up. VERY DISAPPOINTED as I like this game but am fed up with having to keep starting over (especially when I was almost done). What's the point!!! I'm really disappointed that when I got a new phone and had to download this app again I lost ALL the games I had finished and all the coins and tokens I had collected. I backed everything up and most apps brought back up all I had done/ collected. Also I continue to get this message when I click to get reward for posting to Twitter. Whoa there! There is no request token for this page. That's the special key we need from applications asking to use your Twitter account. Please go back to the site or application that sent you here and try again; it was probably just a mistake. Go to Twitter. Well, I'm finally a few games from completion. Hopefully I get done for once. Had for more crosswords to play.
Love this crossword game
by cats68 on 2017/11/03 12:48
I’ve been playing this for awhile and had completely finished both the regular game and the tower. Well had to get a new phone and this app didn’t transfer like some of my other games, but that’s fine with me because I get to go through it all again. There are days when I’m too busy to play so just clicking on the game to get credit and coins is very handy. I was able to build up my coins rather quickly. I also like that there are days when I can play and they have the special one that you can use tokens for and get coins. Only complaint is that once you have finished both the puzzles there isn’t another board to go to.
Fun, if the Ads Stop
by ptruby16 on 2017/12/14 22:55
I'm only here for the 20 tokens tbh. I wanted a free to play crossword app with lots of puzzles to pass the time. This app delivers pretty well. They repeat a lot of small words like END and MAD, but I get why. They need to fill up space. The worst part of the app, which isn't the token/coin system (they kinda need a way to keep people from solving all of them at once), is the saturation of ads. Every time you go back into the Map View from a particular puzzle, they give you an ad. If you complete a puzzle, they show an ad. The ads you watch for extra coins and tokens are even longer, but those are optional and I guess if I click on those it's my own fault. Basically, if they reduced the ads even 25% that would be fine. Otherwise fun app.
Addictive! But limited
by Muse1975 on 2017/08/29 10:07
Love the game but I'm facing the same issue as all the other reviewers...too few tokens rewarded each day as compared to the massive amount of tokens required to open a new puzzle. Currently, I have to open the game each day for a few measly tokens in order to play on. At the rate I'm going, it'll be at least 2-4 days before I can play 1 puzzle (which I usually complete in a matter of minutes). Just doesn't seem right. Of course I can always buy the tokens but some puzzles cost as much as 30 or 40 tokens each. There's an offer of $9.99 for a 1000 tokens - which is a lot for a crossword puzzle. And I haven't done the math but I'm not even sure if that's enough to complete the game. There used to be a feature where I could exchange coins instead of tokens for a fresh puzzle but that seems to have gone away. Why award us coins when there's no use for it anymore? Please bring back the coin exchange option!! Those things aside, I love the game and can play it all day. Maybe this is just the developer's way to force me to pace myself!
Fun, but limited!
by catone3 on 2017/07/22 07:29
I have to play this every day to earn tokens for free by watching advertisements because I don't want to buy tokens just to play a "free" game. But I am limited on how much I can play because the game has limits as to how many tokens you can earn everyday! As the puzzles get harder they require more tokens to unlock. You can only watch five 30 second video advertisements daily to get a few free tokens. The videos are so repetitive. Ugh! I wish the game would let you earn more tokens and faster! I am almost done with the whole game ... I'm glad they added the tallest puzzle cause I was wondering what I was going to do next! Lol
Keep working on the fine tuning, developers
by ace2u2009 on 2018/12/30 21:34
Good concept but needs work. First off, check your dictionary. The clue was “drainage ditch.” The answer should have been “dike,” but the only way the puzzle would accept it is if I subbed a “y” for the “i.” Ummm.... Second, the “progress” pop ups are annoying and insulting. “Congratulations! You found 5 three-letter words!” You have to tap several times to get back to being able to play the game. If the game is advertised to make you smarter, it should live up to its claim and not waste time with meaningless rewards. Personally I could do without the letter bank completely. May be good for a little kids’ version, but not for adults. I’ll delete the app after this, but I look forward to a better version in t(e near future.
Okay...
by Cat1131 on 2018/01/05 03:35
So, this game can be really fun. However, it’s also really frustrating. There are a lot of words used MULTIPLE times (example: “sweets” is used at least ten times so far). Some of the clues are extremely bizarre and don’t make sense. (Field = world ??) Earning tokens is a nightmare. I downloaded an app and played for 30+ minutes to get over 300 tokens... and didn’t get them. Don’t count on support ever responding to you. Some of the quests are nearly impossible. 3 words with the letter Q? It took me about 25 puzzles to get that one. And I’m not sure how the timer quests work... they don’t accurately represent how long I’ve played. When I asked, no one ever responded. It could be such a great game...but it doesn’t feel like the developers are willing to put in the time to get there.
Yes and no
by cswrawr on 2018/02/10 05:03
Fairly entertaining, has kept my attention well. You need to either be English or an Anglophile to get 90% of the informal words. Calling it a giant crossword is a misnomer as it's actually a few hundred tiny crosswords and the number of hints and words that repeat is crazy. I've typed in "spade" "clever" and "tears" at least a half a dozen times each. There's more repeat words than unique ones. And I agree with other reviews stating the amount of coins to open some of them is too high, particularly when half the time the ads to earn coins freeze up and the app has to be crashed resulting in no extra coins.
Not enough tokens
by Karen - Nc on 2018/03/20 19:24
I enjoyed playing the puzzles until rounds cost over 14 tokens, which is half of the "Big" board. The max stored is 10, with an option to earn up to 5 tokens per day for watching ads. You also win tokens by completing quests, which are things like, "find 5 words ending with" a random letter. There is a chance to play a special round for tokens, signified by a rotating coin on the board. I've gotten one opportunity in 25 consecutive days of play. I got hopeful when the "tower" board offered rounds under 10 tokens, but that didn't last a second round. Really, this app is fun for a week or two. Then you just check in long enough to collect tokens (some rounds are 50 tokens).
Ends up Pay to play
by Elevert on 2017/10/04 21:11
I love the idea and solved almost half of the puzzles before I started having issues being able to afford new puzzles. Each puzzle cost tokens and you don't earn them for free fast enough. The ads are already annoying after completing every puzzle. At first they let you buy puzzles with coins which earn you tokens on completion but at a certain point you can't buy any more with coins. Also on the tallest puzzle it makes it seem like you can buy a puzzle with coins, but when you try it just says to complete the current chapter. So coins become useless unless you want to eliminate/solve letters for a clue. Fun at first but don't waste your time. They should make plenty of money on the annoying ads but instead want to make more money on selling tokens as well.
Fun enough
by Danish42 on 2017/07/22 09:04
Uses a lot of "proper" English terms, which may be unfamiliar to some. Sometimes the clue suggests a verb, but the answer is a noun. I'm usually a completionist for games, but don't think I'll follow through with this. As other reviews note, the game becomes slow-going once you reach a certain tier of puzzles and coins/tokens are harder to earn. Heck, wrote this just for the 20 free tokens. Ads pop up between almost every screen, though that's commonplace in a lot of games now anyways. Overall, it gives me something to do that's a bit more challenging and intelligent than a Bejeweled knock-off.
Extremely Excessive Ads
by Marine8914 on 2018/09/21 01:15
Definitely one of the better crossword puzzle apps. If it weren’t for the nonstop ads it would be the best. I understand free apps run ads to make money but this is extremely excessive. You open the app, you get an ad. You enter one of the boards, you get an ad. You complete a puzzle, you get an ad. You leave a puzzle and go to the main menu, you guessed it! Another ad!! Even cutting the amount of ads in half or even by a third, would make it a lot better. The only other issue I have encountered is that some of the clues make absolutely no sense because the answer they are looking for isn’t a correct answer for that clue.
Finally, a crossword puzzle I like!
by Sweet Bre on 2017/11/06 18:43
I was Looking for a crossword puzzle game that would be challenging and fun at the same time. I’ve tried many, but this is the only game that’s held my interest. The only thing is, I don’t like the fact that I have to use tokens to level up to new puzzles. I thought once the puzzle was completed I could keep leveling up to new ones —I was wrong. Besides that small Hang-up, I’m giving this game 5 stars, which is something I rarely do. P.S. I think the tokens could be used to help the player —sort of like power ups.
It would be better if.....
by DiRosie61 on 2019/03/17 00:07
You gave TOKENS for every puzzle you complete! There’s NO WAY to get tokens (which are needed to play other crosswords and you don’t give the option to watch videos to get tokens!) and miraculously when you complete a challenge, you get MAYBE 2-3 tokens and a crap load of coins! You need 7 or more tokens to play a crossword. That’s just a sleazy way to get ppl to BUY the tokens! So when you do that, most ppl with connecting brain cells, see the writing on the wall and they move on to other crosswords that don’t do that. Although I love the game, I won’t buy tokens for that reason. You took a great game and made it all about the money.
Improvement, Perhaps.
by NotQuiteAntiquatedButClose on 2017/07/15 08:20
I'm not claiming any MENSA DNA, but finally the several new puzzles I've done have contained new, multisyllabic, challenging words. I haven't relied on using Wordplay (or any other on-line CW help) so my times aren't remarkable. But, at the same time, my goals have changed. I want to become more self-reliant. On-line puzzle help programs remind me of SNIPER programs used to give some eBay bidders an unfair advantage, for example. Would be nice if these crossword puzzles had a completely even playing field. In any event, I am having more fun while finally experiencing frustration with these games. It's great.
Love this game
by Zacker001 on 2017/07/25 04:52
I love this game i play it all the time! Its not too hard but not easy and the fact that you can buy letters is great along with the free coins you get for watching a commercial is good because you can use the coins to buy new letters without spending any real money... lets face it, if it wasn't for that i would have deleted this app long ago! But i love it just the way it is so don't go wrecking it by changing it around! It's great as is... keep up the good work now, about those 20 free tokens? Ummm yeah, wheres those tokens again?
Fun, but annoying
by BbForever4512 on 2017/09/10 21:00
I am posting this review purely for the 20 tokens it's supposed to give me. I enjoy playing this whenever I have time to kill, and it's really useful if you have to stand in a long line. It's the BEST for amusement park waits. Also, since I think it's based in the U.K., the hints for English slang words are really challenging and have some pretty funny answers if you're used to U.S. English. However, wracking up "tokens" is frustrating if you don't want to shell out your own cash for them. I have literally thousands of "coins" and have no way to spend them on anything useful.
Fun but a bit nerve wracking
by LABete100 on 2017/07/12 20:56
I like this game. Most of the words are easy, but it does make you think of the answers since there isn't as much crossover between the across and down squares as in normal crosswords. My only complaint is that I'm really not sure of the coin/token usage rules. I would play more, but I don't want to end up inadvertently getting charged real money for purchases I didn't mean to make. The new tower puzzle is interesting, but it's downright mean to have the spinning coin "token" puzzles turn out to be locked unless I first pay for all of the "tower" puzzles!
Enjoyable crossword varieties
by Dcamonkeys on 2019/07/08 15:30
I’ve played this game for several months and have been enjoying the variety of puzzles offered, although I’ve completed all of the Daily Diamonds, so will have to work on the rest of the puzzles. I’m enjoying the Fact of the Day, but wish I could see those that I’ve completed so I can access them again after I’ve forgotten them. Just be aware that the creators must be British, judging by the slang/informal terms used. I’ve tried other crossword apps, but this is the one that I’ve stuck with.
Frustratingly fun
by L@ur3n 123456789012345 on 2017/11/16 03:27
The puzzles are fun, though they reuse words way too much. I got really into it, until the number of tokens required to play the game exceeded 10 tokens, which is the most you can earn automatically. After you complete a puzzle, you get either coins (95%) or tokens (5%). And only every other day do they allow you to watch 5 videos to earn a token each. The option to earn more tokens for free doesn’t work. You don’t download an app and open it, etc and it doesn’t credit you the tokens. Bottom line is I completed over 300 puzzles and now I’m stuck. It’s a broken system.
Fun but may require willpower
by Soccabeya on 2017/07/15 02:44
It's a fun game and as crosswords go it's a good challenge without being impossible. The only downside is it costs tokens to play each puzzle and so you kind of have to pace yourself because you only earn so many tokens per day. You also earn tokens for winning quests, but at a certain point you can beat all the quests and still need tokens. So if you don't want to pay for tokens, you just need to pace yourself so you don't use up all your tokens.
Great game!
by Crickette USA on 2018/05/04 11:56
This is a great crossword puzzle. It’s fun, easy, and a perfect way to spend some downtime. I have to say that being in America, I don’t always get the clues for some of the words we don’t normally use here, but that makes it more interesting with needing to use “reason” with how words are structured in order to complete the squares. It’s also fun to learn a vocabulary of someplace other than the US. I also love the daily crossword; I’m up to about 250 consecutive days! I’d recommend this app to anyone who loves crosswords.
Really good but..
by Erika199973 on 2017/08/25 22:33
I've been playing this for a long time and have beaten the original puzzles. With the update they added the tallest crossword or something to that extent and with these puzzles (which I think are more challenging) I don't get any sort of reward when I complete them. So my coins and tokens are just dwindling and there's no way to get any back sans the daily puzzles whose payout is dismal at best. I'm wondering if it's just a glitch but it should be resolved. Other than that I love the game and will continue to play for a long time!
Fun but frustrating
by Over-obligated User on 2017/07/14 02:59
I love the challenge of crosswords. This ap meets that goal, but it is difficult to play without purchasing tokens. Since I will not pay to play, it's taking some time to complete the puzzle. I'm relying on the daily small supply of tokens and a few provided free by viewing advertising and videos. The free tokens often come with the requirement that I sift through advertising. And many do not provide the promised tokens. Quite frustrating. Once I have the satisfaction of completing my current game, I will likely delete the ap in favor of a more user friendly crossword game.
Becomes Unplayable Unless you buy more tokens.
by TMann34 on 2019/08/25 18:20
You can play free for quite awhile. It costs you tokens to open the new puzzles. You have a bank of ten that refill with time. Puzzles start costing more the further you progress. Then when you get down to around 800 puzzles left the puzzles cost 11 tokens. So in order to get more than 10 you must purchase or wait the 24 hours to play one puzzle. It’s a great app and the words get to be quite challenging after awhile. But why increase the cost to where you must pay to play? Doesn’t that defeat the purpose of a free app?
Interesting
by Debster r on 2017/07/14 19:14
I enjoy this game. It is interesting and just challenging enough to keep me engaged. The one downfall it says free but it really wants you to spend money on the tokens. Some of them take so much that I can only play daily a small amount to keep earning them . The coins really do nothing. Occasion you can use them to buy them. The ads are sometimes annoying particularly now that they have sound. It also tends to lock up. I am almost finished with the whole grid and am anxious to see what happens.
Pohpu
by Pohpu on 2018/03/06 22:51
Love the puzzle, work it daily. Some new puzzles would be great as I seem to get the same ones often. Also you surely could be a lot more generous with Tokens. The new puzzle is very confusing!! More explanation would help out. I'm about to give up on it. Do not understand the new puzzle, more explanation would be nice!! Plus, more tokens please!! I completed my last puzzle entirely, nothing!! I had to delete it and re app?.. do get nothing for completing an entire puzzle?. Some prize should be considered. I lost tokens and coins!,,
Slow-building fun
by Mama3bucks on 2017/07/25 15:12
As a lot of the other reviewers have stated, the tokens you need to purchase new puzzles are a little hard to come by. That being said, I love having this app on my phone because it's good for a quick daily puzzle fix. The puzzles aren't too challenging, the coins to purchase hints are easy to come by, and the amount of puzzles is great, too. Love it! On a side note, my US friends-the answers are sometimes different from our word choice-so you'll have to look up their British counterparts.
Overall good game
by 01of03 on 2018/03/20 06:10
Game is great - almost all the clues are well written (a couple here and there don’t make sense, but mostly fine), and it’s much more modern and straightforward than other crosswords. I’ve played this game for a few months now and I’ve enjoyed it. the downside to this game: It’s hard to get through it without spending a little money. You don’t necessarily HAVE to spend money to get farther - you can get by with tokens from the daily reward - but it’s more difficult down the line.
Simple fun is the best!
by bluegrasscotty on 2017/08/04 17:57
Very fun to play. Simple enough you don't have to strain the brain, but just enough to keep your melon sharp! Fun for the family. Easy enough my seven year old can join in. I don't think you'll be disappointed with this game! Scott Just keeps getting better! I've got my wife & 7 year old son hooked on Crossword! Love it!! I really like the added puzzle feature of token and chips for solving puzzles. Feel my mind just getting sharper and quick!
Too many ads
by Jmbogli on 2019/02/08 02:12
I love this game and have been playing almost daily however I’m getting to the point of deleting because of how many ads there are. It is literally constant. You can’t go back to the main menu without sitting through two advertisements. I actually went into all the settings to see if I could pay for the game and remove ads but unfortunately even that’s not an option. I really hope the developers take these reviews into consideration because the ads are single handedly ruining the game.
Hours of fun
by JonahPro on 2017/07/23 16:51
Have played this game for, literally, hours on end. As a retired guy, I think this helps keep me sharper, having to constantly be thinking whenever I have this app open. And it's a great way to relax too. However, after you reach certain point they make it VERY hard to get tokens and I absolutely refuse to purchase them. They even removed the spinning Prize Puzzle after awhile making it almost impossible to get Tokens.
Overall good
by bigberger123 on 2018/11/02 01:30
A nice game. Fun to tease my brain a little. Only problem I have is when I start to put in a word I know is right, the letters arnt there. I’m sure the word is “party” but there’s no Y letter available UNTIL I do another word that’s attached to it. Then go back to do party and suddenly the Y is there to finish the word. If this was fixed then I would definitely rate 5 stars. Just at least make sure all the letters are there to spell the word. I don’t want to have to come back to it and try again.
Was great but each version is getting worse
by mokumax on 2019/02/07 13:49
I find myself quitting the app more than anything these days. It used to be you’d get an annoying ad 1-2 times per couple of games. Now you get 2 ads just to play 1 game and they are being deceptive using the App Store screen shot with a very small faint X in the corner to close it. Do you think you’ll get more downloads of the apps you advertise by trying to be deceptive? If we can’t trust you to deliver an ad that allows us to make the choice instead of trying to be dishonest about it do you think we’ll trust you? Shouldn’t have updated. 4 versions back was tolerable but as I said, it’s getting worse.
What Fun!
by Mobiustrip on 2017/09/02 14:42
Hot dog! Loads of challenges. Whoop dang... can I get my 20 tokens now? I'm back! It's still fun! Game has to come out of the U.K., some of the slang (inf) words were bizarre! Update: It's clear now what the game developers want, they want me to buy tokens. Watching the advertisements and the ad bar isn't enough. The daily tokens and earned coins are not enough to sustain game play. As you progress through the grid and exhaust the lower priced games tokens become scarce, unless you want to shell out some cash. Ah, good old greed. Adios "Crosswords"!
Only one complaint
by BRwoodcrafts on 2018/07/09 03:26
Love the game but when I get low on tokens it seems to take forever to find another game with the amount of tokens I have. I have almost deleted the game from my phone a couple times when I spend several minutes trying to find a game to work with the amount of tokens I have. It seems you make a lot of coins but hardly ever tokens. Make it give you tokens one game and coins the next. A very fun game to play. I hope I don’t have to give it up.
Fun!
by Rapunzl on 2017/08/20 23:33
I love this game and think it's the best one out there in terms of how it is laid out and how it plays. Very easy to use and a great way to relax. The only thing that keeps it from being a 5-star game is needing to buy tokens to move forward and coins to get hints for those tougher words. Getting just 10 coins and having to wait for them to be given one by one is a problem. Wish they would fix the whole purchasing issue and make the game more affordable.
Repetitive answers
by Unfoldednut on 2017/12/12 21:24
This game is fun. It provides everything you should expect from a crossword app, but it's less fun when "hurt" is an answer on two consecutive puzzles that I do. I'm also not crazy about the tokens to play feature. There are already ads between each puzzle (double ads you have to scour the screen to find the "x" to close), so requiring tokens to play one puzzle seems almost greedy. It's good for killing time though, so if you don't mind waiting for tokens to refresh, it's worth downloading.
Rph
by PzlLvr57 on 2017/08/16 17:14
Look forward to working a puzzle every day...that's right one daily because to open a new puzzle you often times must have an unreasonable amount of tokens. Even if you watch the same tired ads everyday to earn tokens, I am now nearly finished but don't have enough tokens. I will not buy them! Also, one must be familiar with British slang to figure out some of the words. Gave this 4 stars because I love crosswords and you do have to use your brain!
