The Java applets

(Wonderful grid by Julien Jalon)

You can use the arrows to move the cursor in the grid. The ENTER key changes the cursor mode (horizontal or vertical), the BACKSPACE key deletes the characters and the SPACE key shows the definition of the word the cursor is on. The Check word button checks if the word the cursor is on is correct, and locks the letters if it is, and the Give word gives you the solution for the word the cursor is on and also lock the letters.

A color code indicates the status of each letter. The black ones have no special status, the red ones are those obtained using the "give word" button, the green ones were checked before the grid was finished using the "check word" button (yeah, this is the beginning of cheating), and the blue ones are those found by yourself. The letters become red or green as soon as you use the buttons, and blue when you type the last letter and all are correct.
