Puzzle games on the Windows Store are a dime a dozen. But good crossword titles are few. The New York Times Crossword aims to set the record straight here, with an exciting new entry.
You get to solve the very same crossword that is available on The New York Times newspaper on your Windows 8.1 machine. Daily puzzles can be accessed from the game, and you can also enjoy nearly 20 years of classic puzzles via the archive.
The official description:
“The best crossword in the world is better than ever! Enjoy the same puzzles printed in the daily newspaper on the only mobile crossword app built by The New York Times.
The New York Times Crossword is free to download, and all users get unlimited access to the daily puzzle and calendar archive for 7 days. After that, subscribe for full access to The Crossword on Windows 8 and at NYTimes.com.”
Not everyone can lay claim to being the best crossword in the world, but the above statement is closer to the truth than most others.
But, as mentioned above, while the application is free to download, you still need a NYT subscription to access the daily puzzles, which actually go live a day earlier. You can use it for a total of 7 days free of charge, to see what the fuss is all about.
After the no cost trial, you can subscribe to gain full access.
Once you do, you can enjoy a richly designed app with support for mouse, keyboard and touch, meaning you can enjoy it on a tablet by writing directly on the screen. Universal, for x86, x64 and ARM.
