Has anyone seen a good flash created, opensource sample of a wordsearch game anywhere in their travels? I have searched hither and yonder...(all over the shop) but nada.

You know the kind that has a grid of letters and you drag to highlight the word upwards, downwards, diagonally this way, that way ... etc

Otherwise yep, I'm off to build my own and will post whatever I come up with.

Cheers,
Rupert

what? WHAT? Speak up will you!

Thanks for the reply Faffy, but I think all that searching is more for finding a word left to right or right to left in a passage of text. I'm wanting to do one of those puzzles where you can find words diagonally as well - this probably means I'm going to have to 'fake' it and use another method.

Thanks Anyway!
