Acrostics, also known as Crostics, Anacrostics, and Double-Crostics, are like crossword puzzles with a bonus prize. The app includes 50 quality puzzles from Puzzle Baron, Acrostics by Cyn, Penny Press, Acrostica and Lovatts Puzzles. Your goal is to reveal a hidden quote in a grid by correctly answering crossword-style clues. This combination of crossword and cryptogram will stretch your brain with an entertaining workout. 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!
Designed for fast and easy play, Acrostics lets you concentrate on solving the clues without all the erasing of pencil and paper solving. 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. A wide range of difficulty levels will challenge beginners and seasoned players alike.
Acrostics includes more than 50 additional puzzle packs available for purchase, each for about the price of a cup of coffee. Pick your favorite author or try something different. These will provide HOURS and HOURS of fun!
If you like word games, crosswords or cryptograms, acrostics are a fun way to exercise your brain!

This is embarrassing. Recently we released wonderful new puzzles we licensed from Lovatts … and failed to notice that some of their puzzles have numbers in their quotes (e.g. "for 20 years"). Unlike puzzles from Acrostics by Cyn, those numbers are *not* part of the clue answers, so this caused those particular puzzles to be jumbled. One of you fine puzzle players contacted us, and we fixed it and sent it to Apple the same day. It didn't affect any of the sample puzzles, but anyone who purchased Volume 1 of Lovatts likely noticed. Many apologies. This release restores those puzzles to their original Lovatts provided glory (this was completely our fault, not theirs.)
