Scrabble - Deluxe Edition
Scrabble: Deluxe Edition is a computer game that is based on the board game of the same name. The game can be played against a player or the computer. The player picks up seven tiles and has to form words to earn points. There are a total of 9 levels in the game.
The game has good graphics on a VGA and the controls are done using the mouse. When a tile is clicked upon it gets picked up, and then another click will drop the letter tile.
The control is done by mouse, and it very simple. One click to pick up a tile and one click to drop it.
Scrabble: Deluxe Edition can be set up such that two-letter words are not allowed and also that no word should end with an s to make the game harder to play. An option that this game has is the option available to the player to Edit the Board. This feature allows the player to set up the board to a position, so as to help practice puzzles on the board. Additionally, the game also has a few puzzle books that can be used as practice for the players. All in all, this is a great computer version of a classic Scrabble Board game.
Virgin Interactive Entertainment
Richard Branson expanded his Virgin business into computer games in the early 80s, initially concentrating on the ZX Spectrum. Within a few years they had an impressive roster of licenses, such as many Taito arcade games and UK publishing of Synergistic titles.
The company bought out Mastertronic in 1989, briefly using the name for reissues and Virgin Mastertronic for full-price titles.
In 1993 they became Virgin Interactive Entertainment, before eventually working with Electronic Arts. Ultimately they were bought by Titus as a subsidiary and the name Virgin Interactive Entertainment was used until April 2003.
The name was changed to Avalon Interactive in May 2003 and it was responsible for the European distribution of the group's games.
