Editors' Review

Download.com staff
This specialized application lets you build your own acrostic puzzles, but it isn't user-friendly. Enigmacross sports a small interface under a File menu with Puzzle, Options, Special, Tools, and Help as the only selections. You can create a puzzle from scratch or modify one of the included demo puzzles, but the program offers little guidance for effectively using either method. When you opt to create a new puzzle, a window appears to select the puzzle's height and width, but doesn't specify the format of the required author and quote or indicate which of the two offered fields the information should go in. The help file primarily offers general advice on selecting appropriate quotes and clues; it's a bit light on advice specific to using the program. You also can choose to solve one of the demo puzzles, which is a nice bonus but doesn't help you with the program's primary purpose of creating your own puzzles. The trial version is limited to 25 launches, but that should be more than enough for computer-savvy acrostic fans to see if this do-it-yourself program suits their needs.
