This is my first attempt at releasing a flash game. I'm studying to work in the games industry so working on this has been really good practice. I hope you enjoy it.

Needs work.

Okay, let me start by saying I spent a LOT of time playing this game.

The Good:
+Great presentation
+Addictive gameplay (Must.. beat.. high.. score!!)

The Bad:
-Game won't end if you simply spam low-scoring words (ID, AE, ER, and other weird two-letter combinations that might be technically words, but really don't belong in a game like this). I got the high score of 500 points (KrinKalaster) before I just stopped playing out of boredom.
-Three-letter combinations don't give more than two-letter combinations.

Final Words: I suggest you change the following: No longer give points to two-letter words. Make three-letter words worth 1 point, four-letter words 3 points, five-letter words 6 points, etc. Longer words should reward more than simply spamming smaller words. Also, get rid of the feature that adds time whenever you finish a word. It would be much more fun with an actual time limit (not spastically making smaller combos to keep the timer up). It's a great game but has some serious flaws.

Verdict: 4/5

Thanks a lot for the feedback, 2 letter words aren't supposed to be worth anything so I'll take another look at my code. Thanks for all the positive feedback though.

BTW, I hope you don't take offence but with the new scoring system your score is unreasonably high and I'll have to clear the scoreboard. Wouldn't want to deprive everyone the chance to get the high score.
