Frustrated by the time-wasting and cheating found in online word games? CrossCraze lets you select a computer opponent to match your own skill level. It will never cheat, never take more than a moment to move and never abandon a game before the end. How refreshing!

Choose from two game modes: 'Classic', where new letters must be placed next to existing ones (e.g. change BEAT to BEATS); and 'Tile Stacking', where new tiles can also be dropped over old ones (e.g. change SCRABBLE to SCRIBBLED).

CrossCraze is a great way to exercise your brain, expand your vocabulary or even practice a foreign language. Play in US or International English, French, German, Spanish, Italian, Swedish, Dutch or Danish.

CrossCraze is available now from the Google Play Store for $2.99 (USD).
