Points to Remember

  • Word games are one of the most popular types of games on the Internet.

  • Externalizing content into an XML file makes it easy to modify and update.

  • Flash components like the ListBox make scrolling lists very easy to create.

  • Keeping track of how long a loop has been running is a good way to determine if a loop is taking too long. In our case we restart the game if it takes too long to generate the board.

  • The Flash drawing API can come in handy for tasks like drawing circles around words and crossing out words in a list.
