Crosswords DS (stylized as CrossworDS) is a video game for the Nintendo DS. It is a casual title and thus is listed under the Touch Generations of video games.


The game features a multitude of crossword puzzles, though also features word searches and anagrams as well. To write in an answer, players just have to write down their answer via the touch screen rather than having to select a letter on a virtual keyboard. The game recognizes the letter that the player writes down unless they, of course, have sloppy handwriting.

Once the player finds the question that they wish to answer, they'll have to press the box in order for it to zoom in. After this, they'll be allowed to write in the letter. Following this, it'll move to the next box so that you can answer the rest of the question.

The crossword puzzles are separated into three categories including easy, medium, and hard, with the difficulty changing with each level.
