How to Play: There are five different levels of difficulty to overcome, Beginner, Easy, Normal, Hard and Expert. You start off on the Beginner puzzle. Here, you see a crossword grid with a good number of the letters already filled in. Along the right of the game screen, are the potential letters that can be entered. If you Left Click on any of the empty squares with your computer mouse, all of the squares that will be filled by that letter glow yellow.
For example, if you see a word like ST_RT – you know the missing letter is A. Left Click on the missing square, then click A from the selection of letters on the right. The letter A automatically enters into all the corresponding yellow squares. This means, as you enter more correct letters, the crossword fills up quickly, with words becoming clearer as you progress. Once you have completed the crossword, you move on to the next difficulty. (Not all of the letters on the right-side menu have to be filled in to complete the puzzle).
If you put in an incorrect letter, simply click on it, then click the button below the menu of letters on the right. This clears the selected letter from the entire grid. As you progress through each difficulty level, fewer letters are filled in for you at the start of the puzzle. If you are stuck, Left Click the ‘Give Up’ button underneath the grid to reset and generate a new puzzle.
Tip: When you click on an empty square, and reveal some empty yellow spaces, then the missing letter in all of them is most likely a common letter such as A, E, I, R, or S. If there are only a few spaces glowing yellow, it is most likely a rarer-used letter.
