Berlin, Germany – Players could not find a better app to spend time with than K and Qu – Criss Cross Words, which has been considered one of the finest and brightest apps for the iPhone. This fast-paced game definitely puts the player’s vocabulary and puzzle skill to the test. The app from Berlin provides an unlimited number of playing fields. They are made up according to the player’s settings of 5 x 5 or more letters.
To form a word, the users connect the letters on the screen with their finger. Letters can be connected with each other in a criss-cross fashion. Letters may even be used several times to form words. When it appears as if all possible words have been found, the user simply shakes the iPhone to rearrange the letters.
For each word points are being awarded. Simple: the longer a word, the more points the player gets. Difficult letters (marked darker in the game) earn extra points. And criss-cross or back-and-forth moves score extra bonuses, so beating the highscores requires extra thinking. However, not much time is allowed to search for words. Depending on the specified level of difficulty this may be 2, 3 or 5 minutes.
K and Qu – Criss Cross Words saves the reached score in the internal high score and online on the palugu high scores server. However, via the Game Center integration, the score may also be globally compared with the achievements of other players. K and Qu – Criss Cross Words 5.0: New languages and competing against friends
