Social/mobile game developer PlayScreen launched SuperBowlish American football themed promotion called the ”Crickler Bowl”, within their crossword-like iOS game, Crickler 2:Daily Word Puzzles. Players win prizes by solving Super Bowl related puzzles and using the game’s “baked in” brag system to ‘tweet’ their support for their favorite team.
Players can solve puzzles based on the Baltimore Ravens, San Francisco 49’ers or the Super Bowl itself. Five players will be randomly picked to win $20 Amazon Gift Cards, when they solve any of the three Super Bowl Puzzles and use the Crickler Twitter brag system. The contest runs from Tuesday January 29th, through Sunday February 3rd.
The questions in these trivia challenges include, “The Raven’s used to be what team? Or “Which stadium did the 49ers and the San Francisco Giants share?” They pose a moderate level of difficulty unless you are able to immediately look up the answers on the crazy thing known as the internet.
PlayScreen will also be running a tally of the two teams popularity, a count of how many times players have played each team’s puzzle. Crickler and football fans can follow the daily action at PlayScreen’s Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/playscreen .
In Crickler 2, clues and words sit side by side—and the challenge is “just right,” thanks to adaptive difficulty based on real-time player performance. The game not only keeps players entertained with fresh daily puzzles, but it allows them to keep up with current events through puzzles focusing on the news of the day. Crickler 2 puzzles teach effortlessly thanks to the straightforward gameplay and “knowledge-based” format of each puzzle. With over 1 million puzzles played, Crickler is one of the most popular crossword style games on the iPhone.
