Making puzzles even more visual

We love multimedia clues in crosswords puzzles at Amuse Labs. While we’ve always supported audio, video, youtubes and images in clues,  we’re providing puzzle creators some more options to make the puzzle visually engaging.

The puzzle creator controls now allow you to turn on media previews for clues with image or video links. You can optionally retain the clue text as well. This feature provides an arresting array of visual clues and engages audiences right from the first look. Clicking on the clue opens up the image or video in higher resolution. Check out this feature in the latest Washington Post puzzle powered by Puzzle Me (images + text), or in our featured puzzle on American TV shows (images only).
