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

Update already!! I'm impressed. The devs are definitely paying attention to the reviews of their programs. Here is the email I received this morning:


Hi Jodi,

Sorry about that, the crossword solver will be built into the Codeword app in the next release (ie no additional app will be needed), due in 1-2 weeks or so. So you will not be required to make a purchase to get this. In the meantime you can always download the free version of Crossword Solver, which you can use together with Codeword in until the new version is in place.

We were hoping to get this live before it was free app of the day, but it went live earlier than expected.

By the way, the new version will also allow you to pick US or UK spellings for the words, which is a feature a lot of our users have been asking for.

Sorry again

So it was a simple mistake and they are already getting it fixed for an update quick. So I would HIGHLY recommend this game if this is the kind of puzzle game you like. The customer service is nothing short of amazing. I never expected to hear from them much less this quick!

I'm leaving my original post below but the fraud/shady business part is totally incorrect - they are on the up and up (provided they do what the email states and based on the quickness of their response to my complaint even tho the rest of my review was very positive I think they're honest). But I want to show the difference between my original review and the actuality of the situation with the Crossword Solver Plus issue. My rating has now gone from 3 stars to 5.

I like word games, I do. In this one, figure out where the letters go in the crossword grid. When you find a place for a letter, it will automatically be placed everywhere that lettter is used. That does tend to make the game easy. A timer tries to keep you in the game and hints cost you time but are otherwise unlimited.

As the FAOTD, grab this, you might like it. As a paid app, only the word game hardcore need apply.

The game contains no undisclosed third party addons that are not opt-in. Internet access is benign and just used to update a high score table that is stored online. Yes the app grabs your DeviceID but it isn't sending anything other than a cookie with your scores from what I can see. No big deal.

This app looked really fun, but my security program detected something called "Backdoor.AndroidOS.Ginmaster.a" that it called a threat, so I de-installed it. I'm not sure it's really a threat, but there's no point in having a security program if I'm not going to pay attention to it. Any ideas? Thanks.

What is available seems enjoyable but it did not take long before I was prompted to purchase a not included component.

The devs give a good description of this game above (which not all devs manage to do).The game is a crossword puzzle where you figure out the words by the initial placement of letters. When you fill in a letter it goes in all matching spaces for the (potential) letter, whether you have chosen correctly or not. Never fear, you can take back a letter placement with no problem and no penalty.

As you fill in correct letters, the solution does tend to snowball a bit because the puzzle populates with letters very quickly.

I've seen at least a couple of other games just like this. This one is no better or worse as an app design than they were. For word game enthusiasts, it's certainly a no brainer as the Free App of the Day.

I deduct a star because, like many apps, this guy wants to stay in memory as a background process. I prefer apps to go away when I exit them.

I played this on a Kindle Fire HD 8.9 with no bugs or other issues.

For those who has never played Codewords games before, it's simple: It might look like a crossword puzzle, but it's not. There are no clues as to what the words are. It is a bit like Scrabble in that you look at what letters that are already there and guess what word it could be. Each square consists of a number which represents a letter of the alphabet; when you enter what you think is the possible letter into a square, all other squares with the same number will show up with that letter too. In short, you unravel the puzzle letter by letter until it's all filled with legitimate words.

Codeword Unlimited+ supports not only English (the default) but also around two dozen other languages such as French, Italian, etc. Just download them from within the app if you would like to play in one of those alternate languages. You can also set the level of difficulty such as grid size, word difficulty, and minimum word length to suit your taste. The game is timed, but it acts only as reference and not as a constraint, similar to Window's Solitaire game. When you start a new game, 2-3 letters are already shown; you can ask it to show an extra letter but each extra one will add about 4 minutes to the clock. To enter a letter, select an empty square, then choose the letter from the keyboard. To remove a letter, select any square that has that letter & press the backspace key on the keyboard. If you are willing to pay $1.19 to buy the Crossword Solver+ app from the same author, you could swipe along the squares then press Matches to see what possible words it could be; otherwise that button is useless. Once you have successfully revealed a word, you can also swipe along its squares and get its definition from Wiktionary - free.
