Product Description

Codeword Unlimited is an application to play the popular word game known as Codeword (also known as Cipher crosswords).

For those unfamiliar with Codeword puzzles, they provide a grid of words, similar to a normal crossword, but with no clues, rather a few initially provided letters, and a number in each square in the gird to indicate its (as yet unknown) letter. All boxes with the same number must use the same letter. From that information and the few initially provided letters it is possible to work out which words will fit in the boxes. Hence you are decoding (or decyphering) the numbers into letters to reveal the hidden words. Usually all 26 letters of the alphabet are used in the codeword, although not always (and unused letters appear crossed out in the keyboard).

Feature list:
1) Unlimited number of codewords!! They are created on-the-fly using the application's advanced generator engine and it's built-in word list.
2) The player decides the number of rows and columns (from 3 to 20). This allows the game to be suitable for all kinds of mobile-phones and tablets.
3) Difficultly level can be specified by the user, which determines the pool of words the generator will use. The larger the pool the greater the difficulty. There is even an early learner mode with a limited number of words, aimed at children and English language learners. The number of starting letters can also be specified. Higher scores can be obtained with more difficult codewords.
4) When a player touches a box, all boxes with the same number are highlighted.
5) For any word in the grid for which all squares are assigned to letters, Codeword Unlimited will highlight if that word is NOT an allowed word in the word list it uses to generate its codewords. This helps you when you have mistakes in your current assignments (saving you lots of time and frustration!).
6) The game will show the player if a completed word is wrong (is not in its word list).
7) An on-screen keyboard means it is much easier and more comfortable to play.
8) The definition of a completed word can be viewed. This is useful if you do not know it, or you are learning a foreign language (internet connection required).
9) Choose the language of the word list, from a large range of downloadable dictionaries. 26 languages are currently available (see below).
10) Can be played in portrait or landscape mode. Just rotate your device and the display adjusts automatically.
11) Game contains achievements integrated into Amazon's "Game Circle".

Other similar applications want you to pay for more Codewords, but this game provides you with endless puzzles, all for free!!

Each game is assigned a difficulty level from 0 (easy) to 9 (very hard). The difficulty level is determined by the settings. Each difficulty level maintains the high scores (measured by fastest time to complete the game). The game displays the best 20 scores for each difficulty level.
Compare your high scores with others around the world by using Amazon's "Game Circle".

If the player is in difficulty, the application provides two very useful aids. (1) The game can provide another decoded letter. (2) The game can show you potential answers for an uncompleted word. The game uses the letters that you have already decoded and displays the matching words.

Dictionaries available are English, French, German, Italian, Spanish, Portuguese, Russian, Arabic, Bulgarian, Croatian, Czech, Danish, Finnish, Greek, Hungarian, Indonesian, Polish, Norwegian, Romanian, Serbian(Latin), Serbian(Cyrillic), Slovak, Slovene, Swedish, Turkish, Ukrainian and more coming later

The settings can be a bit irritating, as you can't set a difficulty level - that's dictated by a combination of your chosen grid size, dictionary and number of "starter" letters, selected by you, and then also by exactly which random letters the app gives you, but that doesn't bother me.
Be warned: some words you will never have heard before, as they can include foreign language and obsolete terms, slang and names (such as of plant species, not individuals). But it does allow you to find the definition of any word in the puzzle once you have revealed it, so you can learn and remember it for next time.

5.0 out of 5 stars wow - an app thats free and good! 7 Mar. 2014

i used to do these codeword puzzles in magazines to pass the time but they were rather laborious - copying across each of the letters as you deduce them -then first saw the online version on the Daily Mail Plus. This app is very good - took a while to get used to the style of words they use but all working well - I recommend it !!

I found this a really handy app as I love doing Codewords and this is just so fast and convenient. The only downside is having to pay for higher levels but ok if you are happy to use standard games

I've always loved these puzzles on paper and feel like I have found an old friend I've had to use the additional letter button a few times but not too often

5.0 out of 5 stars Great puzzle game for codeword addicts 19 Sept. 2014
By susie
Verified Purchase
Great game. I am a codeword addict and this works great in that as soon as you have a letter it puts all the instances of that letter into the puzzle, you can soon tell if you have gone wrong. Different levels and each puzzle is times so you can look at your achievements and try to beat your best score and time.
