Have you ever tried those wordsearch puzzles in
magazines? You know the ones, where words are hidden in a grid of
letters and you have to search for them in any direction. Some of them
can be real tough, especially when a competition deadline is looming,
but now you can use your Atari to solve these puzzles for you. This
great program written by a dedicated wordsearch addict will enable you
to solve several different types of puzzle. It will tackle the standard
puzzle where you have to find all the words, you just type in the word
grid and then ask the computer to identify each word as it is typed in.
It solves those puzzles where one word is not in the grid, you type in
the grid and the word list and the computer tells you which word is
missing. It also solves the more unusual puzzle where the vowels are
missing together with 'nines', those 3 x 3 squares that contain a nine
letter word. Of course doing it this way takes out the fun of solving
the puzzles but if you get stuck it will take away the frustration and
you will be able to do dozens of competitions without major brain fade.
Who knows, you might win that holiday to Florida at last!
