Pixel Words Game

For Feburary’s experimental gameplay project the theme was ASCII. I thought it would be cool to reuse some of the tech from my Pixel Words Screensaver and turn it into a word game. This game was also released as part of The Pirate Bay Bundle.

How to play

Use the left mouse button to move the view and fly through words.  All words are checked against an official Scrabble dictionary and definitions are shown for correct words.  Points are awarded equal to the the number of letters in each word and scoring 2 valid words yields double points.  Zoom speed increases at each level. Score is shown in the upper left and a high score is in the upper right corner and automatically saved. The game ends whenever an invalid word is zoomed into.

      That’s weird, I checked and that is definitely in the dictionary it uses, could have been a bug maybe.
