The Sun Crossword Challenge

Being demoed this Friday at London's Victoria Station, with Page 3 "stunners" on hand to help with the clues.

Attention London commuters! Atari are proud to announce that they will be showcasing the upcoming Nintendo DS puzzler The Sun Crossword Challenge from 8am on 18th April at Victoria Station.

Join in the fun with Page 3 stunners Vikki Blows and Sam Cooke and help complete Atari’s giant interactive crossword. The Sun Crossword Challenge will also be playable at the event and will be on sale the same day.

Atari and The Sun will be there from 8am so make sure you drop by, get involved and have your photo taken with Sam and Vikki – perfect for making your workmates envious when you get back to the office!

The Sun Crossword Challenge operates like a traditional crossword puzzle but with a twist. Like the daily crossword in The Sun newspaper, each puzzle will have two sets of clues - coffee time with quick clues and cryptic with longer, more brain teasing clues. The game has more than 1000 crossword challenges to test the player’s mind.

Using the intuitive game play of the Nintendo DS stylus, the player writes their answers straight onto crossword through handwriting character recognition. If the player gets really stuck, help is at hand with optional hints!

The Sun Crossword Challenge will be released on 18th April.
