Word Gallows - A game to test your knowledge of words and your guessing ability. To play this game, you enter letters into your Palm's graffiti area or using the onscreen keys. If the letter entered is contained in the word, that letter is displayed. If its incorrect, a body part is added to the Gallows. You are given six (6) body parts (guesses), a head, body, 2 arms and 2 legs. If you do not guess all the letters in the 6 tries, you lose. This release has an Easy level. This level gives you 2 chances per wrong guess instead of the normal 1 guess.
You may obtain a hint by selecting Hint from the menubar or use the shortcut key H. At the completion of each game, you may view the defintion of the word. Please note, that this meaning may be one of many and may not be the common defintion is use.
Use different Word Lists, 3 are included, more to come. The default Word List contains about 150 words. Also included 650 3-Letter words. This sounds easy, but its harder than you think. A third Word List is a list of States. The Hints for this Word List is the States Nickname. If any word contains a non-letter (like a period(.) or a space (as in the states), then that character will be displayed for you. Spaces will be displayed as *.
