What I love: Part crossword, part letter Soduko, this game challenges you to use every letter in the alphabet to complete words. Simply select a cell and then choose a letter from the keyboard on the right to start spelling out words. Each letter of the alphabet corresponds to a certain number, so R is 17 everywhere the letter appears on the crossword grid. The object isn’t just to use each letter, but also to finish the board in a timely manner. If you get stuck, you can click on the eye icon to get a hint.
What I would change: I’d like to be able to play more games each day. Even with great scores, there appears to be a limit on how many rounds you can play daily.
