Hello friends
estolo want to make a game "WORD SEACH" and want to do something like this
http://www.scirra.com/arcade/puzzle/9812/word-search-for-kids

What would be the logic in order to form words and mark them as "found".

I thought it would be easy but I have a full day and I can not do it :cry: .

This is my basic game

You need :

●A list of word in your language. (search on google , i am french & i have find a plaintext file words of my language)
You can put the list in a array of dictionnary object for compare word after.
●A sprite for each letters (a frame = a letter , example Frame 1 = A , Frame 2 = B ,...)
●Global variables for all possible letters forming a word (Example : letter1 , letter2 , ...)
●A variable indicating the nth letter is clicked ( for each letter cliqued , variable +1 . for letter cancelled - 1)

For each click you add all global variables and put the result in "finalword" for example . you compare the "finalword" variables with your list word.

The following thread may be of help, as it includes a working .capx of a simple word search.

If your vision so exceeds your ability, then look to something closer.
