GB - Wordyl v0.85

New Release: Version 0.85 - Multiple Languages and More!

Languages: The most notable new feature is dictionaries for multiple languages (each language is a separate 32k ROM). A couple of the language versions have translated UI text as well (German, Dutch and Spanish).

If you'd like to contribute a UI language translation you can leave a comment on, open a PR on github, or get in touch on twitter.

Excellent, I've had a great time with this game, for a future update do you think it will be possible to save the stats? it would be perfect with that feature

Glad you've enjoyed it!

Saving the stats is certainly on the list and might be in the next release, along with a couple other things. Not yet sure when that release will be though.

good news, I'll wait then, in the meantime I'll keep playing this version!

Update - Saving of stats is in the new version which should be out in a couple days.


Oh excellent news!
