My entire life I have
known a variety of people who do crossword puzzles. They may do them in
books, or the newspaper. I myself have dabbled in them. Many times the
cultural references are beyond me. That is where Nintendo comes in. The
Nintendo 3DS has a wonderful new game on it now - Crosswords Plus.
Imagine one thousand crossword puzzles at your fingers tips. No cheating either. Someone could write in whatever and give up on one of the hard copy versions. Crosswords Plus times players and offers hints. Those hints cost points. Points that are earned by beating puzzles.
Many times with Crosswords Plus it is your frame of mind. What words do you associate with other words. Hints can be cleverly disguised. But once the answer it known we wonder why we did not think of it earlier. Or maybe that is just me. I can beat myself up for not thinking of the right answer earlier.
Crosswords Plus has an old school look and feel to it. That is not the coolest thing though. Crosswords Plus can be seen in 3D. Well the top screen anyways. Something I always see as a real treat. Crosswords Plus will change the letters color depending on whether it belongs in that exact spot or not.
The key to success in Crosswords Plus is understanding clues vertical or horizontal. A vertical clue may not make much sense, but if you know the horizontal then you should be fine. Knowing at least one of them will bring the family member closer to success.
Nintendo is also sending families puzzles through Crosswords Plus. Puzzles can also be shared in Spotpass. Families can have months of fun thanks to Crosswords Plus. I am very thankful Family Friendly Gaming was provided a download code for this review. This is one solid title.
