App Store Description

Compact crosswords are similar to normal crosswords, but use lines instead of black squares to separate the words.

Advantages of compact crosswords are:

• Grids contains many more words to find for a particular grid size, making it well suited for smaller screens, but great on tablets too
• No wasting half the screen with black squares
• Larger number of crossovers, like US style crosswords, more reward for finding the answers

Compact crossword grids look a little like mazes, and another name for this game is Word Maze.

Other Features:

• Each new grid is generated on-the-fly by the app, meaning unlimited games to play
• Many 1000's of clues, both straight and general knowledge
• You can zoom in & out of the grid, and move around, making it possible to play larger grids even on smaller screens
• Can also generate grids using the more traditional British style grid, and Arrow Crosswords (Arrowords), where the clues are integrated into the grid
• Very configurable game generator, allowing you to specify the grid size, grid type, clue types, difficulty of clues/answers and even the genre of general knowledge questions!
• Ability to save and reload games, so several games can be played at the same time
• Choose between US or UK English spellings
• General knowledge questions tailored to your country (e.g. US, UK, Australia, Canada, etc.)
• Allows you to generate crosswords tailored to your interests, ability, nationality and device size
• Numerous aids in case you get stuck, e.g. validate word/letter, reveal word and even a built-in crossword solver to show potential matches
• Possible to play with your choice of English, French, German and Dutch clues and answers
