Amstrad CPC version

After the game load screen has cleared the title screen is built. The game completes the word XANAGRAMS letter by letter making a little beep sound as each letter is placed
The game then prompts the player for the level of difficulty and the number of words. This game is played at difficulty level 2, senior school child, and with three words
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
The game does have a basic help screen which shows what the keys are, but there's no hints on strategy
Having tried a few letters in this position I asked the game to reveal the correct letter - that cost lots of points
With a lot of trial and error The first word has been completed.
A vowel must surely come before the letter 'L' and after trying A & E it's the I that fits.
This took a few attempts too, the V was not my first choice of starting letter. At least the score is positive
The game is now complete and another game can be started
This is a five word game on the highest difficulty setting. The words are noticeably longer

Commodore 64 version

The game displays this screen and very quickly replaces it with a 'Loading Data' message that lasts for a couple of minutes
The game's title screen, the game builds the titles from the stack of letters on the right just as the player will do during the game
Once the game has loaded it asks the player two questions to determine difficulty level and the number of words in the game
This is a three word game on level 2 - designed for senior school children. Three words will fit into that grid and all three words are made from the stack of letters on the right
The game has a basic help text screen.
The first letter has been placed. It now appears on the grid and has been removed from the stack on the right
The first word has been completed. Now a four-letter word beginning with F is needed
All words are now in place

ZX Spectrum version

The game's load screen
There's a further delay as the game loads its vocabulary
Once the game has loaded it asks the player two questions to determine difficulty level and the number of words in the game
This is a three word game on level 2 - designed for senior school children
The game has a basic help text screen.
When the player guesses a letter incorrectly the game deducts 5 points The letters that have been tried are highlighted on the right. Here I tried O & L at the start of a word ...
... the right letter was F. This now appears in the grid and is removed from the stack on the right from which all highlighting has been removed
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
The grid is now complete. Pressing any key takes the player back top the beginning where the choices of difficulty level and number of words are re-presented
This is a level 3 game (adults & smart kids). The words are noticeably longer
