Apparently contorting isn't a word :(

Yeah it only checks scrabble valid words from length 3 to 9.  >_<

FRUSTRATED!  400 words and only the V needed (5 others missing) and computer crashed...... Save option please???

For V, think of what objects look like the letter V.
Helps for most other letters too :)

Save option coming... not very soon.

After almost 800 words "I won" but no victory. (No V, the rest was there from a really early point) Such a clever game that kept me in and even searching words online, trying to figure out what letters some things represent. (The coin was really a stupid misunderstanding of mine, for over 200 words at least.)

The music imo is a bit annoying, and that bzzt  really kills it even more. Finding the right positioning with some stuff were a bit tedious at times. Still I think it's a good game. I played it for several hours during a few days. Struggled with a really small variety of letters. Currently at 835. I would make it autosave game, cuz sometimes you just want to leave it aside and get back another time. I did it by leaving the tab open.

Heyo, thanks for your feedback :)

You can turn off the music by spelling mute/silent/similar words.
Also, there are more than 1 way to win(or lose).

Someone also made a walk-through here with hints. Spoiler alert ofc.

Fun game! This would make an amazing mobile game.

Great!!

Thanks :)
