Description:
REWORD is a word finding game with game modes such as Arcade, Classic, TimeTrial etc.
where you must find words from a jumble of letters to progress to the next level. Some modes such as Arcade
allow you to continue if you get the maximum word or a number of smaller word, but Classic mode only allows
progresss if the longest word is found each time. Other modes play a timed game.
Getting smaller words will always add to your score.

The source code directory contains a simple command line utility (rewordlist) that allows you to build
Reword dictionaries from public xdxf dictionaries or word list files. Rewordlist has no UI but has built
in help instructions.

Nice game! A bit hard (even in easy mode some words are rather obscure if you ask me), but then again I'm not a native speaker.

If you like word games then give this a go, very well designed around the Pandora input system.
