  • Best Acrostic Puzzle App Ever Oct 3, 2019

    By Neuroagility
    I love acrostic puzzles because the best of them set my brain on fire. This app, especially with v 2.2.1, lets me be fully immersed as I bounce seamlessly from clues to grid and back. I can see what’s important at each stage and enter or erase flawlessly. Egghead Games’ Acrostics is the best acrostic app I’ve ever used, and the range of puzzles goes from easy right up to the acrostaholic pinnacle. My favorite puzzles are the themed CynAcrostics, which I find comparable to the New York Times’ acrostics. (Later.) Actually, I now think her Volume 4, is best of all!

    I had problems with the app (it wouldn't open) I cleared the app cache & it started working again. I love these puzzles! I've been doing these for years & had to give them up after 2 surgeries on my right hand (I can't write very long anymore) Penny press is my favorite thank you! Now that I can get them on my phone I can finally do them again. The price for the volumes is very reasonable. (Almost half the cost when ordered by mail). I hope you keep them coming I do lots of them!
  • If You Like Acrostics, This is the App to Get! Oct 4, 2019

    I used to look forward to the Charles Preston Quote-Acrostic in the newspaper every weekend until it was discontinued many years ago. This app is a great replacement! The challenge of the puzzles is the same and the functionality of the app is spot-on. And I don’t have to wait until Saturday for a new puzzle. Great support! There was a display issue with Dark Mode in iOS13 so I contacted support. The developer, Michael, contacted me a day later to let me know the fix was available in the App Store.

    No surprise so many 5 stars ratings. The devs are *right on it* with the tiniest suggestion for improvement. Emails have been answered at 2 in the morning. --I've loved all these games in mags for decades, but they are so much better electronically. No wasted time erasing or filling in squares. This is the only dev mags like Penny Press/ Dell will license to present their puzzles as an app, because of their super high standards. $2.99 each for new volumes is cheap for hours of fun.
  • Fun, Challenging Word Puzzles Jul 7, 2021

    By JennyJumble
    My Grandma introduced me to acrostic puzzles many years ago; we spent a lot of happy hours chasing down the right word trying to solve the quotations. I love this digital version that I can play anywhere, even while waiting in line at a drive-thru. The puzzles are enlightening as well as challenging, and help keep my old brain in decent functional order. In addition, the support for this app (from Egghead Games) is phenomenal! I’d rate it 10 stars if I could.

    Definitely worth the $3! One of my favorite Penny Dell puzzles made easier!
  • Love This App Feb 8, 2021

    By KMRANCH96
    This is one of my favorite apps. Really like the different challenge levels. My favorite game is Acrostics by Cyn. Would like to see more of those. If you like word games and haven’t yet tried an acrostic, you should give this one a try. When I recently had a problem with the game not opening, I couldn’t believe how responsive Michael was. He had the problem fixed in no time. Really appreciate it!

    They vary from not to tough to fairly difficult, depending on your experience. As a 63 year old life long crossword fan, they are challenging enough for most. Not so simple that they aren't fun while not being impossible to solve. One of my favorite apps.
  • Ok, I admit I’m dumb Jun 4, 2021

    By AshleyZM
    I need more of the easy one block puzzles (like the kids packs but for adults. I don’t want to buy a set with mixed levels. One block of difficulty is what I need. Would be cool if there was a hint or check for errors button on the top lever. Highly recommend. Really love this game and all of their others. Hardest levels of their others are fine, but not for this one.

    Great app, challenging acrostics. My favorites are from Acrostica; I have a large vocabulary, so it's an unexpected pleasure to find as many as eight words I've never seen in a single Acrostica puzzle.

    There's a good range of puzzle difficulty in the starter pack, but the extra puzzle packs after the initial 4 (for a total of 40 puzzles) can be a bit too steep.
  • Good; could be great Aug 31, 2018

    By D147258369
    Good puzzles and interface. However, unlike nearly every other word puzzle, this one lacks the option to skip already filled spaces. Especially at the end, when filling in the last spots scattered through the quote, it's tedious to have to either re-type or to select each box individually. Please include this option and I'll buy puzzle packs and I'll give you five stars.

    Worth the two bucks. Some of the starter puzzles nastily hard, but overall a good mix. Play with the display to get your preferred version- mine is having the key visible in the middle.

    I love this app! So much more fun than plain crosswords, in my opinion. Wish the additional packages weren't so expensive :(

    Reinstalled on new Android tablet. It remembered the volumes I purchased, but did not remember that I had solved them. Now the home screen is cluttered with volumes waiting to be solved. Just a small nit.
  • No ads ever! Oct 3, 2019

    By pwmeek
    What a concept! This gets one of my VERY rare 5-star ratings. Four for the excellent puzzle format and the fifth for being straightforward about revenue. I will gladly pay for actual puzzles (a few bucks for 50 puzzles is a pretty good deal). I won’t have my day polluted by in-app ads EVER!

    Great fun. A few puzzles are too big to fit on the screen when keyboard is open.

    overall fun and well done. wish there were more free puzzles but I enjoy it
  • Some games in Spanish Jun 6, 2021

    By Bhfstuii
    The fact that I can’t play a whole set of the games because I don’t speak Spanish takes it down a star for me. The games I can play are very fun.

    this app is pretty good if you enjoy acrostics but is hard to work with on a phone screen. acrostics need more room. if you have a tablet it would probably be much better.
  • Latest update May 6, 2019

    By wwertyuip
    The latest update is an improvement, but why are the Puzzle Baron volumes listed randomly instead of sequentially—volume 1, volume 2, etc. It’s a pain looking for a particular puzzle. The arrangement you had before the latest updates was much more user friendly!
  • Baron Vol 3 Jul 1, 2018

    By juniorwarden
    This is a terrible app. It hangs up between views of the clue and quote screens, often does not present the keyboard, and does not scroll through the list of clues. Those are the technical problems, and the definitions are another matter. The developer should study the Wortman or Kingsley puzzles to learn how precision makes double crostics enjoyable.
