Find all the words hidden in the grid by selecting the correct letter from the two possible choices in each square.

How to play

In Cross Out puzzles (sometimes known as "Split the Difference" or "Half and Half"), the objective is to complete the crossword grid by choosing the correct letter (and eliminating the spare letter) in each grid square.

At the start of the puzzle (in Standard difficulty mode), all the squares are shaded grey, indicating that neither letter has been selected.

Tap one of the two letters in a square to select it as part of the answer.

If you tap the TOP LEFT half of a square, the top letter will be highlighted in white and pinned as part of the answer.

If you tap the BOTTOM RIGHT half of a square, the square will rotate so the bottom letter will move to the top, and that letter will then be highlighted and pinned as part of the answer.

Tapping a highlighted letter will remove the highlight, resetting that square to its initial state. Tapping the lower letter in a highlighted square will flip the square and set the highlight to that letter.

The puzzle is complete once all the squares have been highlighted and all the vertical and horizontal lines spell out the valid answer words. (These will always be common dictionary words.)
