The Game Settings menu: what you need to know

The general game settings can be accessed by tapping on the gear icon located on the upper right side of the screen. Check it out:

Sounds and Music

You can separately set the Sounds and Music settings of the game. Now, if you like background sounds, we recommend leaving these settings on to enjoy the awesome soundtrack we’ve created for the game. Note that music from ads will override these settings and play sounds even if you turn off both Sounds and Music. To avoid this, it’s necessary to turn off your device’s sounds.

Gameplay settings

Hard mode: the game has this option to change the level of difficulty of the puzzles and try to adjust it to your taste. This will have an impact after the 11th puzzle and can be turned on/off whenever you want to.

Skip filled squares: when turned on, this option automatically skips slots that are already filled with letters. If you like to type the entire word, all you have to do is toggle it off.

Erase wrong word: maintaining this option toggled on will clear all the letters you typed in case you guess the wrong answer. If you want to review the typed word without the game erasing it after a wrong guess, then we recommend to toggle it off.

Select first slot: when this option is toggled on, you’ll always need to start filling a word from the first slot. This means that you won’t be able to start guessing a word from the fifth slot, for example, before previously filling in direct order.

Vibration: this option will make your phone vibrate when you complete a word and when letters get spread into other slots. If you like some haptic feedback from your device, we recommend leaving this option turned on.

Country and Language settings

CodyCross is currently available in 11 languages: English, Portuguese, Spanish, German, Italian, French, Dutch, Turkish, Russian, Korean, and Japanese.

Reset progress

Let’s say that you would like to challenge yourself and start all over. You can manually do that by using this option. Please keep in mind that all your progress will be completely deleted and you’ll be taken back to the first puzzle. Note that we release new content every month, so if you reached the end of the available puzzles, all you have to do is wait a little bit longer. Learn more about it here.
