At last!!!
I knew you guys were up to something Wink

What joy Smile

Edit: I downloaded the demo and, er, it doesn't work. I just get a black window and a "PiratePrincess.exe has encountered a problem and needs to close." dialog. This is on a spanking new PC with a Radeon 4800 series video card. Will investigate further.

Yup, works like a charm now. Very cool, and obvious parallels with Puzzle Quest. I'll invest in this as soon as I have a computer of my own at home (the old one broke).
Not sure how I feel about the lack of keyboard interface. Many word games allow a type-and-hit-enter input method which allows virtuosi to really show off their anagramming skills.

You can use the keyboard for exactly that reason Smile

Unless something has gone wrong <fingers>

escape - pause
1..9 - use an action coin
backspace - remove all letters from your current word and start over
1..9numpad - press matching button on your available letter set
a..z - if the letter exists in your available letters then use it
enter/return - fire off the current word
left/right control - fire off a broadside

Will buy a copy as soon as I have a home computer!
