As promised in my last post about my Python-based jumbled words game, here I am posting the game for download in various forms. As of now, the first and second forms are for Windows 2000/XP/2003/Vista only.
First is the normal setup in which you install the game by following those usual Next buttons.
Second is a zip file. Extract it, open the extracted folder and click on the JumbledGUI.exe file to start playing it.
Third is the zipped source code file + other required stuff.
Let me know about your experience with this little game. Any suggestions and comments are always welcome.
Note: There is one little bug in the setup / installer, and that is the shortcuts for the game executable created in the Start menu and (or) during the installation process won’t work. You’ll have to start the game by running the JumbledGUI.exe file in C:\Program Files\Jumbled Words Game, assuming that you have installed the game in the default location.

I talked about a jumbled words, GUI-based, game in my last post. I made that game just for fun. It was not at all hard to make when you are using a write-less-do-more-language, like Python.
I would like to share the code of that program with you and give a short tutorial on how to create your own Jumbled Words game. The tutorial is platform-independent. So, no matter if you are using Windows or Linux or Mac, the tut will work out in all the cases.
Here’s a screenshot of the Jumbled Words game running in Linux.

Although I haven’t yet gotten out of the agony that I got on loosing my previous blog, I am finding this new place quite comfortable. Today, I was feeling like blogging here, after so much time. So, here are some events related to me take took place not too long ago:
- Granular 1.0 Preview was released on 14th March 2008. Check out the release annoucnement here. I am quite happy with this release and so are rest of the Team Granular members who put the real efforts in making this release possible. So far, the reaction of the users who have tried this release has been nice and as expected. Another good news related to the release came when its official torrent became the featured torrent at our tracker linuxtracker.org. Check out the torrent here.
- My journey of learning a couple of programming languages resumed after the latest Granular release. I am now continuing my Python book from where I left it and sharpening my HTML/XHTML concepts simultaneously. Starting from today, I have also started a book on Java (damn, you cannot be called even a “computer guy” without learning this language!).
- Windows Vista SP1 has been released and it’s on my download schedule for this weekend.
- Apart from the programming books, these days I am reading a little nice novel by John Grisham. The name of the novel is Skipping Christmas. Till now, I have found this book a real worth-a-read.
- Yesterday, I took out some time to resume playing my favorite game – Half-Life 2.
More to talk later. 🙂
