Publisher's Description

Real cryptograms on your Windows computer. All the challenge and enjoyment of solving cryptograms exactly like the ones found in newspapers or magazines. Make your own cryptograms instantly. Just type in a favorite quotation and click a button. Quiptics encodes the text automatically. You can print out Quiptics cryptograms to give to others to solve. Quiptics adds a few new wrinkles to this enormously entertaining and popular word game. To begin with, Quiptics puzzles have two difficulty levels. Normal mode presents encrypted text in the traditional format-- alphabetic letter substitution at random. Expert mode adds the actual inter-word spaces into the encryption mix.

In Expert Mode, a space may not actually be a space. Each Quiptics puzzle, therefore, incorporates two distinctly separate cryptograms--a Normal puzzle and an Expert puzzle. Each puzzle can be solved on its own. Quiptics puzzles also come with optional 'hints.' Each puzzle can have from zero to ten hints. Hints are very broad- ranging in topic, but usually offer a bit of help to get you started decrypting a particularly ornery puzzle. Finally, because Quiptics are meant to be solved on the computer, they can be quite a bit longer.
