The puzzle game onslaught continues on the Nintendo DS today, as Nintendo itself has shipped Crosswords DS for its handheld system.
Crosswords DS includes more than 1,000 crossword puzzles at multiple skill levels. As players progress, the puzzles get bigger and more challenging. All answers are written directly on the DS touch screen with the stylus, and there’s no need for erasers, because players can simply write the new answer over the old one.
Crosswords DS also includes a hint system by which players can tap the Hint button with the stylus and choose to receive another clue, reveal a hidden letter or solve the whole word.
Crosswords DS also includes more than 200 Wordsearch puzzles in which players hunt for hidden words amid a jumble of letters.
In addition, the game lets players tinker with Anagrams and build various word combinations using a handful of letters.
