Boggle Sprint

Boggle Sprint - Flash Prototype
This is a Flash prototype of a game concept that combines classic Boggle game play with "Blitz"-style play that rewards balancing speed and strategy using power-ups and combinations.

YOU MUST USE THE KEYBOARD TO ENTER WORDS
Please try out the game and leave feedback as comments.

Most blitz games don't reveal the details of their scoring algorithms, so the info below could be considered a SPOILER:

Multipliers

Words of length 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, and 8 score 100, 150, 200, 300, 500, and 1100 respectively.

A four-letter word triggers a x2 word multiplier, and a five-letter word triggers a 2nd x2 word multiplier if you already have one.

To take advantage of a multiplier, a word has to contain a letter with a multiplier symbol.

Words that score 200 or more will increase the magnitude of any existing multipliers (up to x8).

Unacceptable words and words that score less than 200 will cancel any multipliers.

Wildcards

Getting your letters per minute speed (over the last 10 seconds) over 40 will trigger a wildcard letter die.

When your speed drops below 40, the wildcard goes away.
