Vision

Crosswords Planet is a full-screen flash puzzle game offering topic-based crosswords.

Designed for social media platforms VKontakte and Odnoklassniki.

The player is encouraged to solve topic-based crosswords in various categories:
• cars;
• food;
• music;
• money;
• movies;
• animals;
• fairy tales;
• celebrities;
• astronomy;
• Geography;
• architecture and design.

The player is awarded stars for solving the crossword puzzle. A new category opens after using a booster or accumulating the required number of stars.

Each word comes with an image. The game generates profit through the purchase of internal gaming currency for the boosters.
