At this point, after reading the game title, you sure know that Infinite Crosswords is about crosswords, as a lot of other game are too. So we just will try to tell you what is different in this game. Infinite Crosswords emulates printed versions of Crosswords that you can find in newspapers, magazines and that kind of publications, so you can play crosswords in the computer just like if you were playing on the paper. Same rules, same aspect, same all. What’s the advantage of that? That you can access almost unlimited version of crosswords in one single place, the computer game. Not only that, but also all the family members can use the same crossword since you don’t need to actually write it down.
Another cool feature of this way of playing crosswords is that it keeps track of the time you used to solve a certain puzzle. That way, you can play “home tournaments” with family and friends seeing who solves the crossword in less time. Add to that cool feature another, you can play the same crosswords in two skill levels: regular and master.
The game organized the crosswords into categories according to the subject to which the words are related. On the left side of the screen you will find some categories like:
- Universal: Daily Crosswords.
- Entertainment Crosswords.
- Sports Crosswords.
- Los Angeles Times: Sunday Crosswords
- USA Today Sunday Crosswords.
- The Washington Post: Sunday Crosswords.
- Family Time Crosswords.
Each category displays several version of crosswords on the right side of the screen from where you can choose the one you want to play. The game will be keeping track of the crosswords you’ve played, and you can even leave a crossword and continue playing latter.
All navigation is accomplished through labeled buttons. From the game’s opening screen, you’re only two clicks away from playing a puzzle of your choice. You should explore the many choices in the drop-down menus at the top of the game interface. You may customize many aspects of the game environment. These top menu choices change when you are actually playing a crossword and the Help section has extensive information and tips to help you enjoy your play.
One of the best features of the game is that allows you to print your puzzles. When playing a puzzle you will see a Print drop-down menu with three options: Print Blank Puzzle, Print Puzzle with My Entries, and Print Puzzle Solution.
