    Hi,

    I'm happy to say that Astraware Crosswords Deluxe is now available for HP TouchPad. This is a brand new game for us (and currently only available for one more platform). If you are a fan of Crosswords, do check it out and let us know how you like it.

    You can find more details on the game here: Astraware Crosswords Deluxe for HP TouchPad

    If you have any questions, suggestions or comments (or if you just want to let us know how much you like it ), please let us now.

    Here are some screenshots to give you an idea of what it looks like, we tried to make it as colourful and vibrant as we could without it being distracting so that you can focus on the game itself. Hopefully we've succeeded!

    Cool! Glad to see another Astraware game for webOS, even if it is only for webOS 3.x devices....which I don't have...but I'm still glad to see the development continue! Good job Astraware!

    Looking forward to trying this out! I have one crossword app on my TP, but the built-in keyboard is finicky and navigation in the puzzle is non-intuitive. Hope yours is better, and relies on the TP's kb instead. Also hope the difficulty levels are up there.

    saw this on twitter this morning, will be buying for sure!
    I love physical keyboards... but there is two devices that would make me consider a slab, one is something running a full version of Open webOS. The other is an iPhone!!!! HA HA just kidding (about the iPhone that is)...

    it wasn't working in the app catalog earlier, will have to try again later. (the same app catalog lag we have seen lately I am guessing)

    But just be sure you don't now start sitting on the TouchPad!

    Stratego...did I hear someone mention that game? I liked that game! Hint...Astraware...have you ever created a Stratego type game? Might be a winner!

    Play Stratego, the online game - Stratego.com

    It's great to see so many people excited about this game! Thanks to everybody who bought a copy and retweeted/shared the news on the release.

    We have our own keyboard but hopefully you'll find it easier to use. The game's built-in puzzles come in 3 different difficulties and the Weekender puzzles (available to download between Friday and Sunday) have larger grid sizes and should be generally more tricky than the daily ones.

    I'm sure I saw somebody requesting a chess game earlier! The studio is focusing on a different word game at the moment, if demand is there we may release it for TouchPad too!

    As in WebOS phone? Nothing in the works yet and I am sorry to say that it is unlikely.

    Glad to see you were able to get it, we did notice the App Catalog acting up this morning. Good luck with your interview btw.

    We definitely don't want a broken TouchPad. How would you replace it?!

    Good point!

    I would like to see this game also as I am the defacto king of Stratego for over ten years in my family....

    I'm unbeatable

    Just finished my first daily puzzle. App is nicely executed as usual. Keyboard implementation is nice. Overall another quality app good for many hours puzzling. Keep it up, Astraware!

    ...a nice board game would be welcome, stratego, risk, monopoly, etc. Probably license issues though.

    There are ways to alter the game enough to give you very similar gameplay
    Nokia Lumia 920 (daily driver ) - HP TouchPad 32Gb (in daily use) - TouchPad 16Gb (out on loan to a friend) - Pre 3 (AT&T - unlocked) - Pre3 (EU - dev mule) - Veer Panda (AT&T - unlocked, dunno what I'm gonna do with it) - Pre (much abused n stored for sentimental reasons)

    This game is very well made. My only problem is it makes me feel stupid, like crossword puzzles usually end up doing. Good mental exercise.

    Wish there was a program that supported Globe and Mail (Canada) cryptics.

    Hi grappler! We considered cryptic puzzles at the start of the project but it would take us quite a long time to come up with enough clues to create enough puzzles for a game. I guess there is the option of syndication but not all newspapers are willing to do this.

    Personally, I can't get my head around Cryptic puzzles. Like Grabber5.0 I find the quick style puzzles hard enough!

    I am so upset that the deluxe version of the crossword puzzles is not available for the kindle fire HD.
    I was so happy when I stumbled across the release of the deluxe version, only to have my happiness crushed when I learned it was only available for the NOOK people.
    Please Astraware, I'm begging y'all to release it to us Kindle folk. I've completed all the puzzles as well as the in-app puzzles.
