Hey I just finished (or at least started to finish) a fairly entertaining little word game called Lexery.
Each round starts with a random five letter word (and some of them are very random).
To make you new word, you can:
* Add a letter
* Remove a letter
* Replace a letter
* Swap two letters
You may never reuse a word, and you are allowed a limited number of
'imaginary' as long as you make them using one of the moves listed above.
That's it. Try to make as many words as you can from the given word.
The title screen gives the following example:
grass => glass => lass => last => salt
Anyways, I haven't been able to package this up just yet, but there is a ruby gem and source available so if you want to try it either grab it from github: http://github.com/adamsanderson/lexery/tree/master
Or once github has the gem built, you can install it with
gem install adamsanderson-lexery
Let me know what you think,
i like it! short, simple, cute and clever! :)
just one thing though, it didn't seem to work in ruby 1.9.1, so you may want to add compatibility for that (since i think alot of gosu users prefer 1.9.1 over 1.8)
Thanks, I need to get ruby1.9 installed sometime soon. Perhaps next week, I don't want to muck up my 1.8 install though, I need that for real work ;)
That would probably also explain why the OSX template wasn't working out so well.
If you don't want to install Ruby 1.9 on your system but would like to get the OS X template to work, you can also throw your contents in there and read the Ruby errors from Console.app. Haven't had time to take a look at the game but I can't imagine that there are *many* errors that keep it from working with 1.9 :)
iirc the main error was you using the colon (:) instead of 'then' after the 'when' expression in a case. this syntax is no longer allowed in 1.9.1 :)
Easy enough to fix. I liked the colon syntax, oh well. Thanks for taking a look.
was the game idea your own or did you reimplement from another game? It's a nice idea
Thanks, yeah it's my idea. If you have any suggestions, or ideas for gameplay, let me know.
