There are multiple play modes; Puzzle Week features extended play and progressive difficulty, and Challenge Mode offers adjustable time and difficulty.

A DS crossword game is utterly brilliant. I'm only surprised it took them so long to do it.

After seeing the brilliance of Sudoku in Brain Age (writing the numbers with the stylus is very satisfying), I was simply waiting for a crossword puzzle game as well. It just seemed like a matter of time.

I just hope the interface design is clean and simple, black and white. If they try to spice it up too much, I think it'll lose its appeal to the "blue ocean" crowd. Brain Age's Sudoku was a perfect design for non-gamers.
