Xanagrams by Amsoft


Sorry either we do not have an official synopsis for this title or one was never actually written by the game developer, this is particularly true in the case of game packages that have multiple titles in one box. If you own this game, have access to the synopsis (usually written on the back of the box) and would like to submit it to CPC Zone for inclusion on this page, please post on our forums.

Loading Instructions

Playing Xanagrams

e) You will then be asked which level of play you require. There are 3 levels:-

level 1 is set for junior school children
level 2 is for the senior school child
level 3 is for adults and brighter children

f) Select the level of play by pressing 1,2 or 3

g) having chosen the level of play the program will ask how many words you require (1 to 5). If more than 1 word is chosen the words will be linked like a crossword. Obviously the more words you choose the more challenging the game! Select the number by pressing the relevant key.

h) The XANAGRAMS screen will then be displayed. The words will be layed out as a series of boxes. You will have to guess which letter goes in which box. This is done by simply pressing the relevant alphabetic key. The box for the letter you are currently guessing is shown flashing.

i) On the right of the screen are all the letters that go to make up the words.

j) When a correct letter is chosen it will appear in the appropriate box, disappear from the list on the right and you will score 30 points. If you make an incorrect choice you will lose 5 points and the colour of the letter in the table on the right will change.

k) You can move the cursor about by using the cursor keys. If you move the cursor before finding the correct letter then the letters in the table are restored to their original colour.

l) If you are stuck then by pressing the number 1 key that letter is revealed but you will lose 50 points, or 100 points if it is the first letter of a word.

m) If you are totally defeated and wish to end the game, press number 3 followed by the letter Y, and the remaining letters will be displayed.

n) If you wish to avoid disturbing other people then you can turn the sound off by pressing [the] number 5 key. The sound can be restored by pressing 5 again.
