Are you looking for a new game app that simulates your mind, tests your word power, and makes you think? Do you like Sudoku but crave something different? Are you a fan of Scrabble, Words with Friends or Wheel of Fortune? Have you ever tried crosswords without clues? Unolingo, “The Next Great Puzzle”, may be exactly what you are looking for.

The idea of crosswords without clues is not a new concept but Unolingo has given special credence to the idea in the form of a mobile app. What differentiates Unolingo is the idea that each crossword is consistent in its presentation and requires the puzzler to find exactly the right spot for each of the 26 letters of the alphabet. Every Unolingo is a 10 x 10 crossword, but the puzzle difficulty can vary immensely (from 1-star to 4-star) based on the number of letters already present in the puzzle.

Playing Unolingo is very much like playing Sudoku only with letters instead of numbers.  In these crosswords without clues each letter that is placed reduces the number of options for future letter placements and helps the puzzle take shape.  But in almost every Unolingo, there are several words that offer multiple alternatives.   So when letters don’t fit as expected at the end, logic and deductive reasoning is required to find those choices that must be altered to uncover the correct solution to the overall puzzle.
