Overview

This application is recommended for ages 12+.

Acrostics, or double crostics, combine crosswords with fill in the quote. Also called anacrostics, or crostics, the puzzles are based on anagrams and crosswords. Your goal is to reveal a hidden quote in a grid by correctly answering crossword-style clues. Each letter in the quote is linked to a letter in one of the clue answers. As you fill in more and more answers, more letters will begin to fill the quote grid, until eventually the entire quote is revealed. You can also do this in reverse. As words of the quote become clear, they will fill in the clue answers!

There are 50 ranked and timed puzzles to solve! Every puzzle has a difficulty level and time. When you finish the puzzle, you'll see a graph showing how your time compares to expert puzzlers and the number of hints taken if any. All puzzles have been solved and timed by thousands of players at the popular Puzzle Baron Acrostics web site.

Designed from scratch for fast Android play, this app allows you to concentrate on solving the puzzle and makes solving much easier than with paper and pencil. The result is pure puzzle solving fun with no ads or distractions!

Advanced play features include automatic grid updating and indexing, see related cells, multi-level undo, remove errors and hints. Three difficulty levels will challenge beginners and seasoned players alike. Share the results with your puzzling friends with a single tap via email, Facebook or Twitter.
