What is an Arrowwords puzzle?

An Arrow words is a popular variant of the crossword puzzle.

Unlike a normal crossword where the clues are outside the grid and numbered, in an arrow word puzzle all the clues appear actually inside the grid.

Typically they are in single squares, with arrows pointing at the direction that the clue applies.

Sometimes they will also have small regions that have a photo embedded, for instance of a celebrity, and then some clues will reference that.

Due to the nature of the puzzles, the clues tend to be a lot smaller than for a normal crossword as they have to fit in a small space, so it would not be a practical format for a general knowledge or a cryptic crossword.
