    Kudos to the developer for trying something that hasn't been done before.

    Crossword Dungeon is most definitely an interesting experiment and a very interesting new approach to crosswords, it just doesn't seem like it's been fully fleshed-out. That doesn't mean it's not fun or an entertaining distraction, though.

    I don't mean to sound cynical, but just about every kind of game is tacking on RPG elements to add some perceived depth. Like a fool, I always dive straight into them.

    A great idea that brings two distinct genres together in a clever fashion. Sadly, though, Crossword Dungeon just doesn't know what to do with them after that.

    Crossword Dungeon is - regrettably - not the game it pitches itself to be. It's dull and repetitive, the need to move a step between entering each letter in a word seems unnecessarily clunky, and the mistakes in the hints suggest a serious lack of polish.
