Posted by Olly Smith on April 12th, 2021

Cinq-Mars Media has released its word puzzle game Anagraphs for iOS and Android devices. The game released last week after a short delay in getting it onto the appropriate platforms.

This makes for so many new ways to find anagrams from the letters you’re given.
