Arrow Cracker

A slightly bizarre conflation of two puzzles, an arroword and a codeword. At the centre of an arroword, certain cells are coded – about 66 cells in total, too few to make solving easy, using only codeword methods. Fortunately, a large proportion of the coded cells are also clued, with arroword-style clues. In practice, this means the solver is likely to gain easy access to a large proportion of the letters in the coded cells and this in turn makes deciphering of the rest a rather straightforward and routine matter.
