WordMix  1995

WordMix is the Win16 version of WordMax, an anagram game where your goal is to create as many words as possible from a "master word". Other than being Windows software, the main difference is that WordMix uses Macromedia to add slideshow-style transitions between screens. WordMix uses a dictionary of 80 000 words to create a list of valid words and tells you not only how many words there are, but how many are of each word length. Soleau Software replaced the installer in v2.1c with a 32-bit installer, but the game is still 16-bit! This had the unfortunate effect of making the game impossible to install using 16-bit Windows, but impossible to play using 64-bit Windows. In 2012, v3.0 was released for Win9x. There are over 150 master words in this game, with only the first 30 playable in the shareware version.
