Summary: I got this primarily for my Mother who loves crosswords but does not like some of the complicated instructions to some of the computer games etc. I have played this one for a little while and it is very easy to navigate so I know she will like it and not need me looking over her shoulder every time...
Can Crosswords for the Nintendo DS replace puzzle magazines?
22 July 2009
Excerpt: This review is for the Nintendo DS game, Crosswords, developed by Nuevo Retro Games and published by Deep Silver. Crosswords is an educational and entertainment word based game. There is a different, and much better, version available in the United States, and this review relates to the UK edition.
Summary: My wife and I really enjoy this game. She plays the anagrams for about an hour each day. She absolutely loves them and finds them so much fun. I prefer the crossword and word search puzzles. I think they handle just as well as doing them on paper.
Conclusion: This game has taught me to read others reviews before purchasing a game. Admittedly I bought my copy elsewhere, carried away on a 2 for 1 deal, played it once and hated it, never to be touched again. In 2 puzzles I was asked "Asian Country" 3 times, each with a different answer.
Summary: I really enjoyed this format for crosswords, especially when travelling or passing time. The crosswords start out much too easy for adults but would be good for some children. The "find a word" puzzles were fun but again the easy ones would be for the kids.
Excerpt: I was looking forward to this NDS game as I do crosswords all the time and I thought It'd save me carrying around big bulky newspapers, but it wasn't worth it. The easy crosswords are small child level, while the meduim and hard levels are for a Cambridge graduate.
