Hi, I've created a new game called Wordworx. It was inspired by the Wordsmith game that is included on Tivo.
It requires SDL, SDL_mixer, SDL_image and zlib. It works on Cacko 1.23. I'd be interested in hearing about success with other roms.
It is installable to cards
Wordworx 1.0.4 download
Note: After you install it, you should ensure that /opt/QtPalmtop/share/wordworx/hs/scores.dat file is writable by any user who will play the game. This is a high score file, if it's not writable, the game will crash at the end-- no big deal if you don't care about saving high scores, I suppose. I tried to create a postinst that set these permissions, but it broke the ipkg, so I removed it. (if someone can write a postinst that works and add it to the ipkg, I'd appreciate it)
Apart from that, I think the game is pretty self-explanitory. The object is to make words from the pile of letters. the longer the word, the better the score. It's simple, but it can be addictive.
You can use the touch screen or the keyboard. To add a letter to the word, click on the letter. To remove the last letter, click on the word.
Words are checked against a Scrabble tournament word list. There are cases where the game sees that you can still make words from the letters you have left, but the word may not be obvious because it's rather obscure. In these cases, you can press 'H' to get a hint.
I think that about covers it, I appreciate any feedback.
Also, I'd like to thank Cresho for assistance in getting it in ipkg format.
EDIT: New download site
