Geek of the Week: World's Biggest Crossword

This is a simple app that brings the excitement and fun of trophies and achievements and bonus points, normally found in game apps...to the world of crossword puzzles.

Like traditional crossword puzzles, there are clues to 3 across and 5 down...but they give you the letters. 10 of them. So if you're stumped, you can eliminate words you THINK might be the answer because, for instance, there's no “J” in the available letters.

As you play, you earn tokens and points, that can be cashed in for hints in the game. For 400 points, you can eliminate the bogus letter choices and be left only with those found in the answer; for 300 points you can ask the app to give you the first letter of the answer.

A word of warning, however: The game isn't native to America, so some words may use the European spelling (colour, aeroplane) or measurements (liter, kilogram, etc)

The app is free on iTunes and Google Play.
