The New York Times Crosswords
What's an eight-letter word that begins with 'N,' ends with 'endo' and delivers tons of fun?
The New York Times Crosswords is surprisingly easy to play on the DS,
contrary to what you might think with such a text-heavy puzzle that
normally requires a large playing area. The game is made easy by handy
zoom functions that allow you to see the entire puzzle at once or zoom
in to individual clues. Once you solve a clue, placing the letters is
also easy since you can input letters by writing them with the stylus or
by typing them on an on-screen keyboard. Handwriting recognition is very
good. Figuring out what words to play is tough, of course, but there’s a
hint feature when you’re stuck that will give you a boost.
