How To PlayThe aim of the game is to try and build Mr. Frosty. There are ten random hidden words to find over ten levels, each level relates to a part of the snowman. Words are loaded from a text file at random. You must use your mouse or keyboard to select a letter from the board, if you’re correct it will fill in a blank space from the missing word, if you get it wrong your guesses will go down. If you reach zero then you will loose a life, loose all your lives and you will have to start again.
Customisable SettingsThere are quite a few different settings you can choose to personalise the game. It’s very easy to edit and setup, all you need is Windows ‘Notepad’ or ‘Wordpad’ and you can edit the settings just like you would any other text file. Same goes for Mac users, just pick your default text editor.
What settings are there?
Lives In The Game
Set how many lives you will have in the game, you loose a life when you run out of guesses. You could set this higher for younger players.
Guesses Per Level
Sets the amount of guesses a player will have per level.
To make the game more tricky you can set the level you want to start reducing guesses incrementally by 1.
Disable all sounds
Completely disable sounds, music and in game options in-case you don’t want anyone to make noise, great for the classroom.
Start the game with the music on or off.
Start the game with the sound effects on or off.
Having snow on will use a bit more CPU, so it could slow down very old systems.
Name of the text file you want to load. Change this to “morewords.txt” for a selection of non wintry words, or to create your own words use “custom.txt” (see below).
Creating You Own WordsYou can create you own set of words to use in the game. Just open the supplied ‘custom.txt’ file and start typing coma separated words, it’s that easy.
