So satisfying. I with there were more acrosticon apps or even books.

If you complete the puzzle but there is an error - usually due a typo - you get a message that the puzzle is not solved correctly. That is fine. However, that message counts as a "hint" and cost you an trophy icon. Very very frustrating when I complete the puzzle without hints and I get penalized anyway. The message that is isn't correct doesn't point out where the error is, so not a hint. *Update* I figured out what happens is that the cells to enter in letters is so close to the lightbulb it is very easy to accidently hit the lightbulb hint. Frustrating but not a huge problem since you don't unlock anything or gain any benefit by not taking hints.

Love this game. The puzzles are challenging, creative, and satisfying.

A wide range of third-party acrostic puzzles in a framework that works well, even on a small phone screen. The developers are very responsive to bug reports and user suggestions. No subscription acrostic puzzles but I'll be asking them to consider adding the NYT for those of us who subscribe.
