The Daily Crossword is one of Arkadium's premier and most successful games for half a decade. The game supports over 50 different puzzle feeds in English, Spanish, French, German, and Portuguese.

The initial release was built in a little over 3 months with simultaneous releases on web, iOS, and Android. Since then, we continually iterate on the design, add new features, refactor the code, and port to new platforms such as both Facebook Canvas and Facebook Messenger. This is one of the most prominent and flexible Crossword engines on the web.
