Crickler Description

Crickler Free Download.

Cricklers are a new type of word puzzle - a total re-invention of the crossword puzzle for the computer age.

Traditional crossword puzzles are incredibly successful but they have several serious drawbacks: (1) They are difficult to construct, (2) Most words are short and often silly -- chosen only because they fit, (3) Matching clues to numbers is a distraction, and (4) A given puzzle is usually either too easy or too hard.

Cricklers solve all of these problems while retaining the essence and feel of a traditional crossword puzzle.

Cricklers adapt: they become easier or harder depending on the skill of the solver. Words are chosen by the designer -- the computer takes care of fitting them together.

Clues and answers sit side by side.

Cricklers use upper and lower case correctly and can handle numbers, symbols, and accented letters.

You can see which letters are vowels, and you get a reassuring sound when you complete a clue correctly.

We have indeed re-invented the crossword puzzle and we hope you enjoy the results.-- Michael and Barbara Crick
