How to play Code Cracker
Locate the word list at the side or bottom of the screen. Its location will change for landscape or portrait mode. Find all the words from the themed word list in the puzzle grid. Words may be found going forwards, backwards, up, down or diagonally.
As you find a word in the grid, click/tap and drag from one end of the word to the other. If you are correct, the word will be highlighted in the grid and will be crossed off the word list.
In the Code Cracker, letters have been replaced by numbers. Each number represents the same letter throughout the grid. When you begin the puzzle, you will see that a few pre-determined letters have been given for you. Use these clues as a guide to deciphering the code. All words used are from the dictionary, and there are no proper nouns.
As you work out which number corresponds to which letter, click a cell to highlight it and then type in the letter you think is correct. The letter that you type will also appear in every other cell in the grid with the same number. In With Hints mode, cells containing correct letters are highlighted in the same shade as the given letters, and any incorrect cells will be highlighted in a contrasting shade.
You can type the letter into the cell or select it from the Alphabet Key on the right. Click in a cell to highlight it then, in the Alphabet Key, click on the letter you think should go in the highlighted cell. That letter will also appear in every other cell in the grid with the same number. Click again to remove the letter. In With Hints mode, the correct letters in the Alphabet Key are highlighted in the same shade as the given letters. Any incorrect letter will be highlighted in the Alphabet Key in a contrasting shade.
