Word Memory is a simple game where the aim is to find a five-letter hidden word. For each try the player gets to know how many of the proposed letters are in the hidden word. If for example the hidden word is "faced" and your suggestion is "place", it gives 3 points (for the letters "a", "c" and "e"), independent of the position of letters. Only valid words (found in the dictionary) are accepted and a word may only be used once. If the same letter is found twice in the word (as the "d" in "dread") and you suggest another word with that letter also repeated, you receive two points.


In the game you challenge your computer and start the game by deciding the hidden word for the computer, before suggesting your own words. A table on the right-hand side lists all suggested words of the game, the red being your proposals and the blue the computer's. Average points of each player are displayed below the table.
