Crossly iOS

Classic Crosswords, Friendly Competition

Compete Head-to-Head to Prove Your Crossword Prowess

Challenge your Game Center friends or random opponents to a turn-based match of Crosswords. Each new game randomly generates a puzzle from a database of thousands of clues, ensuring virtually unlimited game play. With each correctly answered clue, you gain a point for each letter in the clue, and subtract a point from your opponent for any of their intersecting answers.

Pencil Words to Build Your Strategy!

Penciling allows you to work on the board at any time, changing answers and adjusting your strategy as more words are completed. Plus, all penciled words are saved, even when the app is offline!

Use Peeks to Reveal Letters or Pass Your Turn!

For hard-to-guess clues, you can use a Peek to reveal a letter of your choice. (Only you can see the letter you peeked!) You’ll earn five Peeks for winning a game and two just for finishing a game. Need even more? Peek Packs can be purchased in‑app.

Don’t want to spend your Peeks? You can always pass your turn, and Crossly will reveal a letter to both you and your opponent.
