Gryptics

ArtbegottiWhy bother with the tedious tumult of trying to sort out annoying crossword clues when you can skip straight to the fun part, laying pen to paper and filling the grid with letters? Gryptics by Lame Sauce is a word puzzle where the business end of the crossword is all that matters. Twelve words (six across and six down) intersect in a 6x6 square, which you must fill in. You only clues you get are the extra letters in words that precede or follow the gridded area, and a handful of hint letters thrown in for good measure. Tap an individual square to select it for the on-screen keyboard input, or swipe the length of a word to fill in all the missing squares in one go.

GrypticsThere's only one way to fill in each puzzle with six valid words reading in each direction, so part of the challenge is fighting off the urge to use a simpler, but incorrect word. For example, you probably don't have to second guess a word like SCHIZO______C, but words like COM______LE could be COMFORTABLE or COMMENDABLE or a bunch of other options. The difficulty ranking of each puzzle seems to be based on how many red herring directions are available with the provided letters, but sometimes a hard puzzle may seem simple if you guess the right words from the start. This app comes with ten free sample puzzles, and extra packs of 25 puzzles are available for purchase. If you're the sort of word sleuth who likes guessing Wheel of Fortune puzzles with only two letters on the board, you'll want to give Gryptics a shot.

NOTE: This game was played and reviewed on the iPhone 4. Game was available in the North American market at the time of publication, but may not be available in other territories. Please see individual app market pages for purchasing info.
