Releasing these visuals
, independent games developer Blue Fondue
has announced the worldwide availability of Crossword Combat
, a new browser-based version of the classic word game that challenges its players to compete in quick, ever-changing, real-time matches in the ultimate battle of wits. Players must fill in the randomly generated grid by entering words that include a series of required letters, while unlocking and collecting as many bonus letters as possible before time runs out. Clever players will avoid words that contain penalty letters, as those will cut into overall score.
Hints are available, but only one per match, and should thus be used sparingly. Stats and ranks are posted for a brief period of time between matches, allowing players to compare their performance against other opponents around the world. All points accrued are directly applied to earning additional hints; so by scoring big and by conserving hints, the chances of winning are increased.
