Cryptoquote Challenge

Share Collapse

Author Comments

A cryptoquote is a word puzzle game that consists of short pieces of encrypted text. This text is generally a quote made by a famous author. Each letter of the encrypted text represents the correct letter of the quote. To solve the puzzle, you must uncover the original lettering that represents the full quote along with the author. Win a virtual prize by solving puzzles and collecting enough coins.

Here is a strategy guide to help you get started:

Interesting Idea

Though.. "Hints" would be nice. At least a topic, theme, whatever to the quote (i.e. Love), or when the quote was said/written, or at the very least, when the author's life span was. Also, correct me if I'm wrong, but there seems to be only "one level". As in, you cannot proceed... Maybe its just my lack of quote skill. *shrug*


Simply amazing, i racked my brain for a while on the first puzzle. and the satisfaction i felt when i completed it was just so awesome, i felt so smart :D

This game does not need clues or any more help than you have already given. The satisfaction of working it out on your own? so worth it!


Even though I haven't solved a single puzzle yet I just have to say that the premise of the game is excellent! The only criticism is that the game could use with an array of different difficulty levels. For example:

Easy mode: Gives you 2 letters to help you along, grants 1 coin for completion.
Normal mode: Gives you 1 letter to help you along, grants 2 coins for completion.
Hard mode: Gives you no letters to help you along, grants 3 coins for completion.

Just like some Sudoku puzzles have numbers already filled out to help the user.

All in all, I love the game, I love the idea but I just could use with a kickstart!

Best of luck


it's very difficult, i imagine you'd have to be near genius level to get this done in any short amount of time. Generally a couple of letters are given, depending on their value in the quote, there can be up to 5 letters given. E.g. the letter "A" and the letter "I" are very strong, so you would only need one more letter, however the letter "H" for example is weak, so you may need a few others or stronger ones.

by strong and weak i'm meaning in the English language different letters are used more than other, and can be put in smaller words, or even by them selves, weaker one's don't appear very often, and have to be accompanied by many other letters in many cases. such as "K".

Often vowels are strong as they appear frequently, so giving atleast one of those in them will help out incredibly.

Thanks for reading.


too hard for me, but it looks like a nice game.
