More information:
In Power Word, a relatively simple game, letters are randomly generated and drop a la tetris. When three or more letters are stacked or placed next to each other the program will do a binary search on the appropriate file. If a word is found it is removed and anything above it drops. The current letter can be moved using the arrow keys with the up arrow switching with the next letter.

Version 2.0, added 09/21/01, pretties up the US, adds some new options, and contains more comments.
