Tell a Friend
on Steroids -- by Mike Crick
WordRap is a puzzle game that combines both vocabulary and logic.
It's an improved variant of the game Jotto -- or can think of it
as MasterMind with words, or as an evolution of Hangman.
The object is to deduce the computer's mystery word. You play
by entering words and seeing how many letters match between your word and
the mystery word. Winning takes some solid logical thinking as well
as a little luck.
The easy game asks you to find 3-letter words. When you have mastered
that, you can move up to 4-letter words. The 5-letter word puzzles
are the most challenging. There is also a variation where you race
against the clock.

The trick is to pick probe words that most quickly
reveal the computer's hidden word.
A new feature adds definitions for more obscure words making this an excellent
program for expanding your vocabulary. WordRap plays in English,
French, German and Spanish. WordRap is part of Michael Crick's
Word Games for Windows and works with all versions of Windows. One
of my favorite games -- plus it has a great rewards screen! -- Mike
