Diamond Crosswords outsold every NY Times crossword title on the Amazon Kindle store and is now is now ranked #1 in the crosswords category.
Los Angeles (PRWEB) April 7, 2011
Last weekend a new type of crossword, Diamond Crosswords tm, outsold every NY Times crossword title on the Amazon Kindle and at one point shot to #43 on the all Kindle rankings. This happened over a three-day period starting with the release of Diamond crosswords on Kindle on March 30, 2011. Diamond Crosswords is now ranked #1 in the crosswords category.
The “Easy Diamond Crosswords” is a crossword with a twist. The crossword has been turned on its side and plays along the diamonds across and down. The Kindle application of the game, developed by San Francisco developers, Puzux, is a nice fit on the Kindle screen and the navigation is tight and intuitive.
Perhaps this crossword application has become so successful due to the fact that the puzzles are short and can be completed rapidly, but still contain challenge and help to expand the vocabulary and word knowledge of solvers. The game is available for kindle users at http://www.amazon.com/Diamond-Crosswords-50-Easy-Puzzles/dp/B004O3ZD2O/ref=zg_bs_156388011_1
Diamond Crosswords is promoted in two videos on YouTube, “The Girl Next Door” and “Overreaction” both of which may get you laughing:
It is also published in a paperback, “Easy Diamond Crosswords #1” published by Cardoza Books and distributed by Simon and Schuster. It is available in Barnes and Noble stores nationally at http://www.barnesandnoble.com.
