* SOLEAU SOFTWARE PRESENTS * QUATO WORD GAME (1.1) Program by William Soleau Version 1.0 (c) 1993 Requirements: EGA or VGA & HARD DISK REQUIRED Files Needed: Quato.ov0 Quato.ov1 Quato.ov2 Quato.ov3 Quato.ov4 Quato.ov5 Quato.ov6 Quato.ov7 Quato.ov8 Quato1.fnt Quato2.fnt Quato3.fnt Quato.dic OBJECTIVE The object of Quato is quite simple. On the 5x5 game grid there are 24 letters randomly placed at the beginning of each game. The objective is to move the letter tiles around to spell as many four or five letter words as you can within 3:00 minutes. GAME PLAY At the start of each game there will be one black space on the game grid. Using your arrow keys (left,right,up,down), move the letters around by using the blank space to arrange the tiles so that they spell four or five letter words either across or down. Each time you move a letter tile, that row and column will be checked against an 80,000 word dictionary to see if any valid words have been spelled. (With a Hard Disk of average speed, this program can search approximately 10 different words in within a second) If a word is found, then it will be shown on the right side of the screen and its score will be added to your total score. SCORING Points are awarded for each word found in the dictionary. A word can only be used once during a single round. The scoring is based upon the letters the word contains and the length of the word (either four or five letters). Each letter has a certain point value. 1 Point : A,D,E,I,L,M,N,O,R,S,T,U,W 2 Points: B,C,F,G,H,J,K,P,V,Y 3 Points: Q,X,Z The letter values are totaled and then multiplied by the length of the word. Example: BATS B=2 A=1 T=1 S=1 Letter Values = 5 * 4 (word length) Total Word Score = 20 BONUS WORDS AND LETTER BONUS At the start of each round, there is a Bonus Word which is shown below the game grid. If you can arrange the letter tiles to spell this word, then that word score will be tripled! Below the Bonus Word is a list of all the different letters which appear on the game board. If you can use all the letters in spelling your words within the 3:00 minute time limit, you will be awarded a special bonus of 100 points. SCORE CARD When the 3:00 minute time limit has expired, your final score will be shown below the word list on the right side of the screen. This score will be compared against the Ten Top Scores recorded. If you happen to qualify for the Ten Highest Scores, you will be asked to type in your initials. The Top Ten Scores are always visible on the right side of the screen. * Note * If you want to reset the Top Ten Scores, then you can erase the QUATO.SCR file from the disk.

S H A R E W A R E M A G A Z I N E ++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++ Shareware Magazine has distinguished itself as the only internationally distributed periodical devoted to the use and business of shareware. Shareware Magazine provides detailed reviews of new products, hard-hitting comparisons of shareware programs with regular retail software, and timely information about changes in the industry and the latest technology. Intriguing columnists and regular features add to the excitement. The beginners section sheds light on new user's concerns regarding everything from choosing the right operating system to alleviating the intimidation of using on-line systems. Educational sections focus on how low cost shareware can aid in classroom learning, curriculum development, and as a forum for discussing the impact of computers and technology in schools. Graphics Gallery renders expert advice and suggestions on how to better work with graphics, desktop publishing, CAD systems, and the Windows environment. Programmers benefit from others experience in developing new programs or polishing existing ones as well as choosing the right programming language. And columnists provide that subjective component, sometimes controversial, that calls for a closer look at the way we compute and how shareware effects what we do. Published bimonthly, Shareware Magazine is available on a subscription or at your local newsstand or computer bookstore. In conjunction with PC-SIG, there are special benefits for subscribers as well as opportunities for discount purchases from PC-SIG.
