Million $ Words Halloween

*NOTE: The game was originally intended for voicing, and as such the best fix I had was to use a timer to allow the player to read the question and choices. On some questions, this timer is a bit long... And may make it seem like the game is frozen; I apologize for that. The daily edition is indeed voiced; I won't put any direct links to the daily edition here because I don't want to look like I'm just trying to redirect everyone, but you can click the FB, Twitter, Blogger or Newsletter buttons in-game to find out more.*

If you're interested in sounding more articulate, using a newfound vocabulary to get a better job, live longer or gain superpowers, or if you just want to be able to use huge words to sound smart, this is definitely the place to start! You'll make it rain million dollar words left and right, earn achievements and even use your millions to purchase prizes for your desktop and to print and hang on the wall you lucky rich parvenu. So incinerate your word-a-day calendars as you laugh your way to over a hundred new words and learn the fun way through game play!

Million Dollar Words is a game show broken down into 7 categories of 15 questions. Each category is broken down into a different theme including trips through the Zones of Twilightyness, solving the mystery of the defenestration of Mr. Critterboddy and facing 15 horrifying fears! Each question will display along with four choices; your job is simply to select the right choice. Get it right and you'll win lots and lots of money, the kind of money that TV game shows give away! Can you win enough to buy the really cool stuff? Desktop wallpapers for your computer, printable rewards and even a certificate declaring your word mastery can be yours if only you can survive!

Is it my computer, or is it broken?

I've tried several times, but the answers never appear, just the question. Seems like a cool game, if it worked.

CataclysmicKnight responds:

I'm very glad you told me this! I had written out a reply about how you just have to wait a few moments after the question, but once I tested it myself I realized there was some sort of sound issue. For some reason, when the game was using the MochiAds wrapper for preloading and ads it removed the sound from the game. The questions are based on a blank sound effect "blankquestion" and "blankresponse". Since the sound effects aren't working, the sound effect would never load and thus would never finish, which means the next piece would never begin.

Thanks for pointing this out, and also for the "Seems like a cool game" :)

Don't work

Apparently you're supposed to see 4 choices. Instead, I'm seeing nothing there. not even an option to go back to the main menu or leave the game. I have to restart to get back to the menu

Thank you for letting me know about this! I posted a longer response on the above comment, but know that I appreciate you pointing this out too and I'm very sorry about the issue!
