Ditto.

G4 Quicksilver under 10.4.8.

Eats about 40% of my CPU power but shows only as a black window and a single menu.

Downloaded a fresh copy from the web site. Although a version wasn't specified, it ran.

Within the program it said version 1.2.3.

Typical odd behavior of this developer.

All Shoecake games seem to have the same mouse bug. (recently got a new mouse and it's still there)

Sometimes when clicking and quickly dragging, the software reacts as if the button has been let up.

Junk the stuffit file!

Make the download a .zip or .dmg. Allume stinks and stuffit files are a pain now that expander isn't packaged with the OS!

Very unique fun game.


I have a few reservations, however.

1. Too many J's, V's, and Z's, and too few E's tend to make the game become repetitive quickly since those aren't exactly easy letters to use.

2. The same grid of letters seems to begin many games in a row.

3. Many groups of letters which score aren't actual English words (or must be very obscure).

Could use more interesting sounds. Might get it if it were tweaked a bit.

I bought WordOMatic from shoecake games, was charged for it and never received the passcode despite three e-mails to the company. They haven't responded to any e-mail to date. I'm wondering if they are still in business. They had no trouble charging my credit card, however.

This game is good simple fun, worth the download.
I think it could have more options tho, stuff like larger board sizes or options for turning off effects (the OSX build is a terrible processor hog). Also, the word list seems a little strange. I came up with many three letter words that werent real words or were in another language, such as French.
Despite its problems, this game is entertaining.
