The Word Spiral AI will look through the game board searching for a good valid word to play.
Until it finds its best choice. It could very well be a word you have never heard of given its 200,000 word vocabulary !!!
If you start a word but then see a better word elsewhere, just start the new word. As long as you are not selecting a letter next to the prior letter, the prior word will be forgotten and the new word will start.
If you select the wrong letter and wish to remove it, just click on the prior letter and it will be removed.
Press the Reset button to restore the board that you just played.
Your original game board is restored. You can play the same board all over again for a better score or ask the AI to show you what it can do with the game board.

WordSprial determines a score after each valid word is found. The score is a percentage of the best possible score of the game. So the top score is 100%. The best possible score is to clear the entire game board in 10 turns. The score is based on the number of valid words found at any time, plus bonus points which are reduced at each round. A percentage is lost for unused letters at the end of the game. The user can tell if the game is over by asking if there are any words remaining that they did not see (use the Hint! button).
An alternate scoring system is part of challenge mode. This uses a letter points system plus increasing bonus points for words of 5 or more letters. Challenge mode pits you against other WordSpiral players around the world, for the highest weekly score. No AI or Hints in challenge mode!!!
Press the ">" button in the upper left corner to see a scrollable list of all of the words that have been played and the scores.
The settings screen allows you to turn the music and sound effects on and off and adjust their volumes.
The Word Removal speed controls how quickly letters are removed from valid words found. Letters are removed from the first to the last letter one letter at a time. When a letter is removed from the spiral, all the letters that follow it move down to fill in the space where the letter was removed. With the mid-range default speed you can see these holes being removed. Setting the speed to the highest level, removes each letter almost instantly.
This screen is also used to select the scoring mechanism to use in the game. Challenge mode always uses the Point System instead of the percentage sytem.
A 'preset' game board may also be selected using the settings screen. This is the same game board every time so you may work on it over and over to figure out how to obtain the highest score.
When the letters of a word are removed, those letters that follow each letter toward the outside of the spiral will move down one cell for each letter. The letters below it toward the center of the spiral do not move. You can use this to your advantage to try to align letters in order to make a better following word.
The neighboring letters on the board change as each word is formed. So there can literally be hundreds of new possible words found after each word is removed. The is no telling if the removal of a 4 letter word is going to reveal a 10 letter word after it is removed. The game changes as each word is formed. Play the same board again and you can get an entirely different score.
The AI can be beaten. It uses a strategy of finding the longest word toward the center on each round. But, sometimes a strategy of selecting the highest point score on each turn beats the longest word strategy. But, with the changing letters with each word found, selecting a certain word at one round, could open a set of longer and higher scoring words at the next round. The AI can be beaten.
Play the same board again and again to see how different your score can become.
Form as many words as you can horizontally, vertically, and diagonally. Then eliminate them from the board and try again and again to remove all the letters. Then let the AI give it a try.
