In Masterwords Classic, it is necessary to discover a word randomly chosen by the application from among:
- 5400 in 4 letters,
- 12470 in 5 letters,
- 22150 in 6 letters
- 32900 in 7 letters
- 40100 in 8 letters
- 40230 in 9 letters.
It is enough to propose a word of the number of characters chosen in the options and the application indicates the number of common letters between the proposed word and the word to be found and the number of common letters well placed. By successive deductions, we must find the word randomly drawn. The usable words are those allowed at the Scrable. Conjugated verbs and plural words are allowed, but not proper nouns. On request the application suggests 5 words of which one can be chosen by the user. With voice input option you can say the word aloud and correct it if the recognition is not perfect.
- Number of letters: You can choose a word of 4, 5, 6, 7, 8 or 9 letters.
Joker: You can choose to be helped by a joker. The joker will tell you if the letter you think you have found and positioned is good and well placed.
- Assessment mode: You can choose to have either the number of words or the time elapsed. The two evaluation systems coexist on the main screen, but the application will tell you if you have beaten your best score either in words or in time according to the chosen option.
- Voice input: you can say the word aloud and correct it if the recognition is not perfect
- Dictionary: at the end of the game, won or not, you can in most cases (all dictionaries do not include all scrable words) get the definition of the word. You can choose between four dictionaries according to the level of completeness of the definition you want.
The application maintains your game statistics: games number attempted, successful games number, games number with joker, average and minimum words number used and average and minimum time set to find the word. You can reset these statistics if you wish.
How to play
MasterWords is a puzzle game that does not necessarily need to know all the words used (there are more than 150,000!). It's a deduction game. For example, if you suspect an R at the end of the word (5 letters), suggest ABLER, then ABLED. If with ABLED you have a letter of less well placed, it is that you have an R at the end of the word (see an example of a game with joker -in french).
You can enter the letters you think you have found in the entry box just below your word. If you have opted for the joker, the application will put in green color a letter that you propose if it is well placed. You can also get suggestions of words.
The keyboard to the right of the game screen allows you to memorize the letters you think are not in the word (touch the letters to eliminate them).
The list of words you have proposed can be rolled up or down if it exceeds the available space on the screen. The last word is always at the top of the list.
You can pause the stopwatch by touching it. It will restart if you retouch it or if you propose a new word.
Solution in case of abandonment
If you cannot find the word, you can exit the game and get the solution by touching the SOLUTION button at the top left of the screen.
Definition of word
Whether you found the word or not, you can get the definition, provided you have a connection to the network (WIFI, 3G-4G). All the words are not necessarily defined in the dictionary you have chosen to use, but some will allow you to add one if you know it.
To exit the dictionary, touch one or more times if necessary the back key of your phone or tablet.
