Everyone is familiar with Crossword puzzles and have played it mostly through newspapers. Crossword puzzles are said to improve memory as well as vocabulary if you play them on a regular basis. Lot of people enjoy solving crossword puzzles including me. So I decided to look for crossword puzzle apps for Windows 10. These apps would help you play a game of crossword anytime you want and on any Windows 10 device.
Let’s look at these crossword puzzle apps for Windows 10 below.
The first crossword app in this list is called crossword. The app gives you crossword puzzles from popular sources like NY Times, Wall Street Journal, LA Time, etc. Just look at the question for across and down to fill up the crossword. The correct letters will appear in black color, whereas the wrong ones will appear in red color. You get options to auto-solve a letter, word, or even the whole puzzle. The puzzle interface can be seen in the screenshot above. Though the app allows you to play today’s puzzles only. Previous puzzles are only available after you upgrade to a paid version of the app.
Crossword Guess is another app which offers you free crossword puzzles. The app is easy to install and the interface is also pretty neat. When you select the play option you will be directed to the puzzle game as shown in the above screenshot. On the right side are the questions from which you have to guess and fill up the crossword boxes. The checkmark icon you see is for taking help, you can choose to reveal one letter, one word or solve the entire puzzle. The settings icon lets you change the font size, turn the sounds on or off, etc. Each time you complete a puzzle just click on try again button on the pop up window, this will bring up a new puzzle in front of you.
Crosswords by dynamind studio is a bit different puzzle game. It is still a crossword and you have to guess words from clues. But the clues are presented in a very different way. Like you can see in the above screenshot, there are different levels to this game. Apart from the levels the games also are given in a very unique way. Like in the whirlwind section all the words will be written in a circular shape. Similarly, in the word ladder puzzles all the words would be starting with the same letter and would be of equal length. In the same way each level has puzzles in different shapes.
I thought that I would find loads of crossword apps and games in the Windows 10 store, but to my surprise the number of crossword puzzle apps is very less. Some good ones are paid apps, while some are simply word apps. So I was able to find the above 3 free apps to play crossword puzzles. So play and enjoy.
