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!

More fine tuning this week: the app now re-sizes the home page text based on your Settings -> General -> Accessibility -> Larger Text slider values. We also fixed these bugs: an erroneous "all puzzles in this volume are finished" prompt, an extra prompt for "New Version available", a rare crash, and we corrected some puzzle errata. Last but not least, our designer guided some small fit & finish layout adjustments.
Coming soon: more tweaks to better wrangle larger puzzles onto iPad screens.
Note, we will be increasing the price of the app and puzzle volumes in mid-October, so feel free to stock up before then!
