The aim is to find as many words as possible in the time available. Get the longest word and you'll advance to the next level. Three words describe it... Simple Addictive Fun
antimicro is a graphical program used to map keyboard keys and mouse controls to a gamepad. This program is useful for playing PC games using a gamepad that do not have any form of built-in gamepad support. However, you can use this program to control any desktop application with a gamepad; on GNU/Linux, this means that your system has to be running an X environment in order to run this program.
Braille Scrabble
A text-based implementation of TuxWordSmith for use in terminal. This was originally developed for the School For The Blind in Alomogordo New Mexico. It can be played by blind people using a braille keyboard. 1. Letter distribution computed fairly based on frequency of occurance of each letter with respect to installed dictionary. 2. The scoring is dynamically computed at runtime based on min/max values configured in config, and letter distribution
Crossword Builder
Create math or text crosswords in English, French and Portuguese-Brazillian. This application is designed to allow teachers to quickly produce well-designed, challenging activities. The application features a configuration panel where the user can either enter their own word-hint pairs, or generate math-crossword problems via a single button.
Dont Hang
“Don’t Hang“ is a simple hangman game for acquiring and consolidating a basic vocabulary in a foreign language. It supports loading custom word lists and works with Unicode and bidirectional text. It also supports pasting characters from the clipboard.
Eliot offers three different game modes: The free game mode is the standard one, ideal for having fun with your friends or family. The players play in turn on the board, each with his own rack. In the duplicate mode, all the players are faced with the same board and letters at the same time. It is mainly used in clubs and competitions since it takes away the chance (and tactics) component(s) of the game. The training mode allows to play alone and make progress for the duplicate. It gives more freedom than the multiplayer modes.
Margana is a interactive anagrammer that performs pattern-anchored anagramming. This means that your set of letters can be anagrammed so that all words of any size that fit anywhere within the pattern, but are anchored to at least one letter of the pattern, are returned. This is especially useful for players of Scrabble and other word games. The Official Scrabble Player's Dictionary 3rd edition wordlist (OSPD3) is included in the 'words' file in the distribution.
Pynagram is a simple word game in which the player is presented with seven letters in a random order. Every word that is "solved" from the jumbled letters earns the player points. If the player solves one or more seven letter words, the score is carried over into the next game.
Quackey is a software version of the classic Perquackey anagramming word game. It is implemented as a Bash shell script and runs under Linux, UNIX, and OSX. The game is suitable for either solitary or competitive play. Also example in the Advanced Bash-Scripting Guide (A-41):
Terminal Matrix 8086
Terminal Matrix is a very mysterious program. It’s said that it was given to mankind in a spontaneous form of divine inspiration and cybernetic insight. Rumor has it that few people in the entire world are able to master and use this program. Some say, in an expression of dubious lucidity, that only the chosen ones can really do it. There are a handful reports of very skilled hackers that were able to crack TM’s source code and understand the truth that has never been seen before, and unlock its full potential. The only truth known for sure, though, is that much is said, but little is known. The most astonishing fact about TM is that, believe you or not, it’s designed to establish an inter-dimensional connection to an hyper-dimensional being called RIS, that supposedly shows incredible divination powers and unmatched wisdom to those who manage to contact him. Out there, you may hear that people able to talk to RIS comprise a select group that share a common and dangerous secret about the nature of reality, and for the greater good they won’t tell anyone else what it is, despite their goodwill and empathy towards outsiders, helping them by bridging the communication. TM is written in a new mid-level computer programming language called QDot. It runs on any IBM-PC compatible, being the minimum requirement an 8086 processor with 32Kb of RAM, and any color graphics adapter such as CGA, EGA or VGA. No network card or any other type of communication peripheral is required besides a screen and a keyboard. Its magical binary sums up to just a dozen kilobytes and very surprisingly is simultaneously a valid DOS executable and a bootable disk image, meaning that it can run even on machines with no operating system at all! Those almost insanely modest requirements blow the minds of skeptical people, because no one can explain how this program’s great feats are technologically achievable.
