Electronic Theatre ImageToday’s US launch of Crosswords DS for the NintendoDS puts more than one thousand crossword puzzles into the palm of your hand. Crosswords DS includes puzzles at multiple skill levels, so anyone from beginners to experts can give it a try. As you progress, the puzzles get bigger and more challenging. Because you write all your answers directly on the Touch Screen with your Stylus, there’s no need for erasers – just write your new answer over your old one. Crosswords DS also includes a sophisticated Hint System if you get stuck. Just tap the Hint Button with your Stylus and choose to receive another clue, reveal a hidden letter or solve the whole word.


Crosswords DS brings crossword puzzles into the 21st century in a way that’s accessible to everyone,” said Cammie Dunaway, Nintendo of America’s executive vice president of Sales & Marketing. “And because NintendoDS is so light and portable, you can play it anywhere at any time.”

Crossword puzzles aren’t the only classic word games found in Crosswords DS. There are also more than two hundred Wordsearch puzzles that let you hunt for hidden words amid a jumble of letters. For more word fun, you can turn to Anagrams and construct almost endless combinations of words from a handful of letters.

Crosswords DS, with its quick and accessible word challenges, is the latest in the Touch Generations line of NintendoDS games. Previous games include Dr. Kawashima’s Brain Training: How Old Is Your Brain?, More Brain Training From Dr. Kawashima: How Old Is Your Brain?, TetrisDS, PicrossDS, and of course, the Nintendogs series. No UK release has currently been announced for Crosswords DS, but with New York Times Crosswords and The Sun Crossword Challenge currently doing the rounds, and CrossworDS from Deep Silver joining them in June; it surely can’t be long till Crosswords DS joins the ranks of Polarium and PicrossDS as tea-break favourites.
