There’s nothing like a good crossword puzzle or word-search game to stimulate the brain. But a lot of themed crossword puzzles offer just a few clues and sometimes an image related to the subject. Not so with Digiluna Games’ Movie Crosswords game.

This post is brought to you by Digiluna.
The clues in all of the easy-to-play crossword and word-search puzzles relate to the cinematic theme, making them unique — and a great way to boost your Hollywood knowledge.

Digiluna Games tailors its Movie Crosswords game to film and TV enthusiasts. From Hollywood classics to the latest binge-worthy TV series, the puzzles have the silver screen and the small screen covered.

A lot of research went into creating the free app’s 20 crossword puzzles and 19 word-search games to create enjoyable challenges for movie fans. And even more hard-won knowledge helped create a huge expansion pack of additional puzzles, available with an in-app purchase of just 99 cents.

What’s more, the app’s efficient programming is easy on your device’s battery. And Movie Crosswords’ offline capability lets you play the game anywhere, anytime, like on a long subway ride or in a remote cabin. And hey, if you’re stuck somewhere for a long time, that expansion pack for just a buck will definitely seem worthwhile.

Movie-themed games are ad-free and user-friendly

The app — which is free of ads — is designed for user-friendliness and carefree fun. You’ll never need to scroll around to work on a puzzle. The keyboard, clues and grid are always in view, keeping the emphasis on entertainment. (On an iPad, you can use landscape mode for even more-comfortable gameplay.)

And if you don’t know an answer, don’t panic — just click Options > Help Me! and the answer will appear as if you typed it in. You can also clear the puzzle with a click or use an eraser to wipe multiple squares clean at once.
