Description

Xanagams is a single player educational word game that is something like a cross between cross-words and scrabble.

The game consists of a series of interlinked words in a crossword style grid. The player is supplied with all the letters that comprise these words and the object of the game is to place the letters correctly onto the play area to complete the words. Points are awarded for correctly placing a letter and are lost for either placing a letter incorrectly or asking the game to reveal what the correct letter in a given location is.

There are three levels of difficulty which are said to be for 'junior school children', 'senior school children' and 'adults and brighter children', and a game can consist of 1 - 5 words.

Xanagrams ZX Spectrum The first word is now complete. I'm looking for a letter to follow the V to help complete the second word. A is highlighted because it has been tried and is wrong
Xanagrams Amstrad CPC The game does have a basic help screen which shows what the keys are, but there's no hints on strategy
Xanagrams Amstrad CPC This is the game. Three words will fit into that grid and all three words are maded from the stack of letters on the right
