Beschreibung für das Spiel 3D Scrabble
Ähnlich wie das bekannte Brettspiel müssen Spieler bei "3D Scrabble" aus sieben Buchstaben ein möglichst langes Wort bilden. Als Besonderheit ist hier die dritte Dimension zu beachten was das Spiel noch interessanter und schwieriger macht.
Anleitung für das Spiel 3D Scrabble
INSTRUCTIONS (must read before play):
This is a 3D version of a well-known Scrabble game. This means that words
must be build in three directions. Such a game is impossible to make in
the physical world, but here it is on the screen of your computer.
The rules of scrabble were simplified: you get score not for words or
letter values, but simply for the number of pieces you dispose of in your
turn. And there are no bonus-cells. The field is 9x9x9 (in original scrabble
it was 15x15).
Pieces - Score
1 - 1
2 - 3
3 - 5
4 - 8
5 - 12
6 - 18
7 - 30
If you do not place any pieces in your turn, you loose 1, but all of
your current pieces are replaced, so this might be a good option if you
get some really bad combination of letters. The player who first gets
Also a nice thing compared to the board version is that when you take
new pieces in the beginning of a new turn, each letter has a certain probability
(corresponds to the frequency of it in English). In usual board version
there was only one Q and one Z in the store, so, say, the word "fuzzy"
had no chance to appear on the borad. Here you can get even 4 or 5 of
letter Z at one time (however the odds of that are very low).
Since this is a very simple game (I wrote it in 2 days from scratch),
there is no word-checking system and no AI. It is simply a board game
of scrabble but transferred into 3-dimensional space. The computer won't
check if the words you place really exist, also it won't be able to place
anything itself. If you do not have a friend to play with, set 1-player
mode and play alone. It is pretty exciting, too. And the last thing -
there is no "*" piece (which usually acts as any letter and
can be then replaced by another player).
ENTER - ends turn (if no pieces were placed all of your current pieces
will be replaced next turn)
ESC or Q - restart game.
Right-click - move the view.
Left-click - take a piece, put a piece.
When is it possible to place a piece in hand somewhere (it is inside
the field and it's current position is not already occupied by another
piece), the letters on the sides of the piece will highlight.
UP-arrow / DOWN-arrow - next/previous layer. This is a very useful option.
Layers differ in color. For example, the 4th layer is green, so if you
are currently in the 4th layer, your piece in hand and the pieces on the
panel will also be green. When you move your mouse, you will remain in
the same layer, to ju´mp to another layer, you must press UP/DOWN.
When you jump from one layer to another, the color of the piece in hand
will change. The game will help you to see all pieces of the current layer
by blending any piece overlapping the area around your cursor.
W, E , R - change layers axis. On default the layers axis is W, and you
can leave it so until there is really lots of pieces on the field overlapping
each other. Then you might sometimes need to change the layers order for
better view of crowded areas. This function is useful, because it will
change the blending mode and will let you see some words in one layer,
if previously they were going through different layers and could not easily
be tracked because of the need to switch between layers to see each letter.
