Lexica is a “digital puzzle book” more than it is a game. The puzzle style is derived from a marriage of elements from crossword puzzles (namely: Scrabble), and logic puzzles. It creates a unique blend of traditional puzzle experiences that feels both novel and nostalgic at the same time. You fill in a crossword grid to solve each one; however you don’t get clues to what the words are. Instead you must adhere to the simple rules: use logic and knowledge of English linguistics (i.e.: morphemes) to figure out what letter goes where.

You are going to want to have a strong knowledge of the English lexicon if you are going to really enjoy the puzzles and be able to solve them without looking up answers / or just getting lucky. Many of the puzzles contain extremely obscure words that are rarely used in everyday conversation. Even with a strong vocabulary, you will probably encounter some words you don’t know the meaning of. The more difficult puzzles can be quite tricky and you might have to discover words you don’t know by using your understanding of linguistic morphology in the English language.

If you are confident in your English vocabulary, and if you enjoy logic-puzzles, then you will probably enjoy Lexica. The puzzle style is quite innovative and solving them can be quite satisfying. If you get stumped you can skip a puzzle and return to it later. The game is quite relaxing and is great if you don’t want to play an attention-intensive game at the moment. It also makes for a good side-activity while you’re watching the game or are bored at work/class.

There is a good amount of puzzles that will keep you busy for hours, especially if you don’t cheat any answers. But once you beat everything, there is no random level generation, and you can’t even redo the puzzles you solved (but you would already know the answer anyway). By the time you beat it all, though, you will probably be ready to move on.

In summary, I enjoyed Lexica. It combines traditional themes from Scrabble and logic puzzles to create a unique experience. If you enjoy those types of puzzles, you will probably want to check out Lexica.

It's really upsetting that this game could be really fun... if it let you see the puzzle when it was completed. You can't even re-play puzzles to see any words you didn't quite pick up. This makes it less "educational" and more "pointless".

Lexica is a great casual puzzle game that will test your noodle to the max. It's nota crossword puzzle, because you don't know the words, nor are there any clues. But it's a perfectly mixed bag of crossword/word search mixed with Sudoku. The game gets increasingly hard as you go through the 288 levels. The majority of the words are words that you should know while others you might just get lucky by using the Sudoku strategy of what letters can go where. This was a very addictive puzzle game that I have to recommend to all of my friends. Definitely worth the price if you love puzzle games.
