Text entry game

I had an enquiry from a client this week for a game they were trying to build and didn't know how. I gave them a high level overview of how to build it.

But the idea wouldn't leave my head, so I took some time out yesterday to build it.

Let me know what you think.


I will share the file when I sort a few things out, I really want to get the Enter Key to submit.

Here is the file.

@Pernille the list should be:

  • Dragon fruit
  • Watermelon
  • Apple
  • Orange
  • Grapes
  • Pineapple
  • Strawberry
  • Kiwi fruit
  • Pomegranate
  • Cherry

And one not so easy to see fruit.

There are some variations allowed, and I have a version up and running with fuzzy logic where if the spelling is 80% correct you will get credit.

This is so beautiful and an excellent game for language learning (which is what I teach), but as Pernille noted, I also wondered if I could allow for "close enough" spellings--and provide feedback. I'm looking forward to looking at this more closely. Thanks so much for helping a newbie like myself learn from the experts!
