Phraseology Publisher's Description

Phraseology is a game of knowledge and logic based on elements of the familiar games Hangman and Wheel of Fortune. When the game starts, a phrase (song title, movie title, TV show title, or best selling book title) is displayed as a series of bullets. Guesses for individual letters are made using the keyboard, and as a letter is used it is removed from the keyboard. If the letter occurs anywhere in the phrase, it is displayed. The game continues until one of the following occurs:

- All letters are uncovered displaying the full phrase (Winning Game)
- Time runs out (Losing Game)
- Too many bad guesses are made (Losing Game)

The game display shows the time remaining as a rising water level, and the number of correct guesses as a bridge being built. A red jeep drives up the hill and will be stranded at the top if the bridge is not built before the water rises to the top.

The data file included with the program contains 300 movie titles, 350 song titles, 55 TV show titles, and 150 best selling fiction and non-fiction books. Additional data files can be downloaded from Creative Engineering at http://www.ceng.com/Phraseology/description.asp.

Stealth Mode - Phraseology also has a 'stealth mode' that makes the game appear to others as a normal productivity application while it is being played. Anyone looking at the screen in this mode would not think that a game was being played, making it perfect for those long meetings. The top half of the screen is a fully functioning text notepad that can be edited using any of the PocketPC data input methods when the game is paused. The window also supports 'Tap & Hold' for the standard edit commands. Whatever is on this note is automatically saved in a file called Note.txt when the program quits, and will be automatically be reloaded the next time the program is started.

If the Enter key is pressed, (or Pause is selected on the Tools menu), the game is paused and hidden and the notepad edit box with the standard keyboard is displayed. Selecting Resume on the Tools menu will redisplay and resume the game.

Phraseology is shareware, and is fully functional. Until it is registered, gameplay is limited to 12 phrases.
