  • If You Like Acrostics, This is the App to Get! Oct 4, 2019

    By ya boi shartisha
    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.

    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!

  • 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!

    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.

  • Great acrostic puzzles, now also in Spanish! Jun 25, 2019

    By billfalls
    The app comes with 10 free puzzles from each of several publishers including one set in Spanish. Sets of 50 puzzles are available for roughly ten cents a puzzle. You end up revealing a (usually interesting) quote. If you like solving acrostics on paper you’ll love doing them at the keyboard. I should add that Michael provides excellent user support.

  • 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.

    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.

    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.
  • 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!

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

    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.

    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.
