Playing Instructions: Word
Search is a small educational game. To play, just hit the
'New Game' button, then drag your mouse over the grid to
select a word. Once found, words will remain circled. If
you get stuck, hit 'Solve Game'. The applet reads data
from one or more plain text files located on the server.
Given a list of such file URLs, it will load a new set of
words for each game, looping back to the first file after
the last. The words in each list are stripped of
non-alpha characters and converted to upper-case before
being added to the letter grid, so 'New Mexico' shows on
the grid as N E W M
E X I C O. Words are listed in the
order read. Words that are too big for the grid or just
can't be placed anywhere because no space is left, are
dropped from the list (just for that particular game).
Good educational gaming concept.
Configurable with own text.
