Reword is a clone of the TextTwistgame. It's a simple word game where you are given a jumbled 6 letter word and must find at least one valid 6 letter word from it to progress to the next level. Smaller 3, 4 and 5 letter words can be found to add to your score.
The source code is available here.
- Download the file and extract the contents to your SD card. Most games can be installed anywhere, but some games need their own directory and some have to be installed to the root of the SD card - check this first.
- Install the SDL libraries for GP2X if necessary - see the instructions if needed.
- Launch the game with the included gpe file.
- Many games may require you to maintain the file structure within the archive - if the game seems to quit back to the menu as soon as you open it this is a common cause.
