Blindfold Word Biggle

<h1>User Guide</h1>

<p>

Blindfold Word Biggle a letter linking game, inspired by Boggle, for both sighted and visually impaired people, designed for rapid audio play.

It is similar to the Word Flick game that’s in Blindfold Word Games, but has more features.

</p><p>

You want to form as many words as possible in the 4 by 4 square of letters.

Words must be at least 3 letters long.

</p><p>

To start the word, move within the square of letters, flicking up, down, left or right.

When you found the letter you want, tap the screen twice.

To continue building the word, you can move in any direction: left, right, up, down or diagonally, one letter at a time, double tapping each time.

When you have completed the word you want, tap with 2 fingers.

The game will announce your word.

</p><p>

To better understand this, consider row 1: S T O P  and row 2:  A B C D.

You can create the word STOP entirely on row 1, by reading from left to right.

You can create the word POTS entirely on row 1, by reading from right to left.

You can create the word SAT by starting with letter S, then moving down to letter A, then moving right and up to letter T.

You cannot create the word SAD because the letter D is not next to the letter A.

You cannot create the word POP because you can only use the letter P once.

</p><p>

To clear the word you have built so far, tap three times.

To erase the letter you just picked, swipe left with 3 fingers.  To erase more, keep swiping left with 3 fingers.

You can also press and hold 3 fingers instead of swiping left with 3 fingers.

</p><p>

When you enter a word that you already used, you are told the word, and the word you are working on is cleared.

To end the game, swipe right with 3 fingers.

</p><p>

Your score is based on the number of words and their length.

Three and four letter words are one point, five letter words are two points,

six letter words are three points, seven letter words are five points and words with eight of more letters are eleven points.

</p><p>

To change the game to use letter words instead of letters, such as “echo” for the letter “e”, use the settings screen.
