Version: 1.3Hotspots is a word game that allows the user real control over the game options. The user can configure the board, the letters used in the game including their values. Play against a computer opponent with a brand new dictionary of everyday words, reducing the chances of weird words being played. Of course, the dictionary can still be configured as described in the help files. The computer analyses the board efficiently using sophisticated algorithms to find the most competitive move.
Operating System: Windows
The level of difficulty can be set to thrash you mercilessly or to make the computer behave like a dunce! Decide on placement of premium and penalty squares (premium squares are 2, 3 or 4 letter scores and 2, 3 or 4 word scores, penalty squares are -5 or -10 scores). Set the level of difficulty from Learner to Genius, over a range of 10 ability levels. Save and re-play games, analysing each move to see where you went wrong. Create a game report, showing the words on the board, the top ten moves and the move that was played at each stage of the game.
