User Reviews for Cryptogram Tale


Re: Immature stories - there is one or two, but I liked them and I’m old ;-) Space bar Tip - tapping on the space bar takes you to the next letter. This is different than the advance to next letter option because you can hit the space bar multiple times to get to an empty space (or wherever). Yes, I skipped the help section. Love the fresh idea of solving a story. Am having fun and need to spend more time solving and less time reviewing ;-)I agree with others that the curser should jump to the next empty spot. Get a bit tired of moving my thumb a full two inches to click the next blank. Lazy, but still! Now SOLVED, kind of - use space bar.Developer is very responsive. Thanks!

Great idea, but a little clunky

Love how each puzzle completed adds another installment to the overall story. What a great idea!!I feel like selecting letters could be easier. Like, maybe if it was in landscape mode, the letters could be larger, or at least the puzzle would fit in one screen. And the QWERTY keyboard could be permanently on the screen.

Fun, one problem

The only issue I have with this game is that every ad I get is one I can’t close. The little “x” is so tiny and so far up in the corner that it won’t let me hit it. In order to get back to the game, I have to close the app completely, and restart it. This makes it impossible to watch a video for a hint, as well. It’s really frustrating.

Excellent way to spend my time

If you like cryptograms this app is definitely worth your while. I like that it has a good variety of different styles from short tales, ancient tales, poems, and other styles of writing. And with a repertoire of different authors each cryptogram exposes you to a different style of writing. What makes it even more fun for me, is that, by the time you’re done with a cryptogram you will have also read a new book or story, which can take as long as you want (you can pick how lengthy a tale you wanna tackle and it saves your progress automatically so you can take as many days, months, or years to finish one). And if you get bored you can always work on a new one or go back and pick off where you left off on an old one. I’d also like to add, the developer was very responsive when I submitted feedback about a small bug I came across on a prior version which was fixed pretty quickly on the next update. Thank you for taking my feedback!

Great app, no way to report ads

I’m a big fan of this game! However, I keep getting an ad that cannot be closed. I also cannot report this ad anywhere but here. It’s a match-3 fighting game, I forgot the name. It’s very frustrating, to get to the next stage of the cryptogram, one must completely close the app and restart it. :(

Not for young kids

I very much enjoy this app, but there should be an age warning. I have done 4 stories so far, and 3 have involved murder, abuse, or death. I would not recommend this app for anyone under 13 or who is sensitive to darker content. It is also annoying how some of the pop-up ads pause your audio, so you have to keep leaving the app to restart your audio if you are listening to something. Overall, though, I really enjoy this app.

Just deleted all of my progress 🤬

Yesterday, I would have given this game 5 stars, or honestly more if the rating system allowed. I play this nightly. I’ve finished nearly 20 stories and love getting to read all of these books that I never would have picked up on my own. The added puzzle element is a fun addition. However, when I opened the app this evening, all of my progress was lost. According to the game, I haven’t done a single sentence of a single story. I am incredibly disappointed.

Love this game!

I love the concept of this cryptogram game! Decoding a whole story keeps the interest so much longer. It just challenging enough that you’re not discouraged if you hit rough spot. Totally addicted!! There’s so many stories to decode it’s practically limitless!! Please keep updating with new stories! Update: I don’t usually pay for games but this time I did! Willing to support a great game! $1.99 to remove the ads? Totally worth it!!

Needs more mature taste in literature

An excellent idea with a couple of flaws, both related to the choice of texts. The first is that unless there are some peculiar features in a passage, they’re rarely difficult to solve—pull out A and I, and then look for a likely THE. Then, since you already know the general subject of the passage, the solution is usually pretty obvious. But I can see how some people would find this a virtue—it can be relaxing to knock off a series of easy puzzles. The second flaw relates to the developer’s taste in literature. The selections aren’t bad, exactly, but they’re all the sort of stories that appeal particularly to teenage boys. I find myself groaning (and often skipping to the next one) as soon as I recognize the text, usually on the first page. Selections chosen by someone with more mature literary taste would be very welcome.

I’m so upset :(

I’ve taken quite a liking to the game, and have been playing it quite a bit at night. Yet recently, all of my progress had been deleted. I was heartbroken that everything had reset after the effort that I had put in. I had almost completed another story too :(The story’s are so intriguing, although many I’ve played are quite dark. The mechanics are wonderful, and are easy to use and understand. Truly, the only reason my review had been placed at 2 stars was because of all of my progress deleting. I hope this can be fixed and that this doesn’t happen in the future :(
