[prMac.com] Cupertino, California - Created in conjunction with a New York Times Crossword Puzzle builder and published by The Smyth Group, So You Think You Know Words offers word gamers of all ages and skill levels a contemporary and easy-to-learn crossword style challenge. The game contains a variety of themed puzzle packs consisting of 100 individual puzzles, each including a cryptic clue and three empty solutions that must be solved using a corresponding grid of letters.
Each cryptic clue appears above three sets of blank tiles showing the length of each required solution. Players must create words that solve the clue using only the letters that appear in a corresponding grid of tiles. Puzzles can be approached in any order with previous successful solutions marked as completed. There is no limit to the number of guesses and there are no time restrictions or penalties for wrong answers; So You Think You Know Words can be played for either a few spare minutes, or for a prolonged period.
To prompt new ideas the tiles can be shuffled at any time by simply shaking the device and hints can be viewed which place one letter into each unsolved solution. Should further help be needed, an option to ask friends posts a copy of the clue to the user's Facebook wall where friends can give suggestions for a solution. Currently featuring puzzle packs "Foodie Fare", "Amazing Animalia", "Simply Synonyms", "Anatomy 101", and with a TV / Movie pack coming soon, So You Think You Know Words provides a long-lasting and addictive word challenge for gamers of all ages.
