Acrostics, also known as Crostics, Anacrostics, and Double-Crostics, are like crossword puzzles with a bonus prize. The app includes 40 quality puzzles from Puzzle Baron, Acrostics by Cyn, Penny Press, and Acrostica. 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!

We made some minor puzzle tweaks reported by customers, and also added the puzzle count per volume to the description (usually 50). Also, if you send us a support email, it will optionally include your app version, device type and iOS version to save us all some time.
Last but not least, we tweaked our recently updated "About" support to make sharing with a friend even easier via any of the usual routes: text, email, Facebook ... whatever Apple supports. You can use this to send to your friends that have Kindles or Android / Google Play devices, as well as Apple iPad/iPhone.
As always, we LOVE to hear from you with any questions or suggestions with About -> Contact Support, and we REALLY love it if you take a moment to add a rating or review. It takes just two taps to get started: About -> Leave Review.
Side note: Why are reviews so important? Because the app store uses them as a metric to determine whether to show our app to customers when they search. Also, customers use the stars and review text as a guide. We're a small company dedicated to creating great mind exercising puzzles, with no ads, no spyware and no gimmicks, while *obsessing* about quality! So, every 5 star review really helps us gain visibility with potential new customers like you. (Why 5 star? Unfortunately, the review rating system has suffered grade inflation, and 5 star reviews are the new "good enough" rating). Thanks in advance if you read this far!
Cheers, Mike @ Egghead Games
