Lexter is a real-time word puzzle for text terminals. Arrange the falling letters into words to score points. Lexter supports internationalization and multiple dictionaries. The package contains English and French dictionaries, but needs a French gettext translation for the in game text.
If anyone would like to translate Lexter to another language I'll include any "po" files I receive in the next version.
Lexter project dynamically calculates word scores from the dictionary contents. The format is plain text with one "word" per line and can contain just about anything. They could be topical like place names or even famous number sequences. Although it might make for a very difficult game.
The Lexter archive also includes an RPM spec file. RPM users can build a binary package ready to install by running:
rpm -tb lexter-1.0.3.tar.gz
You will find the binary rpm under /usr/src/rpm/RPMS/i386 or /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/i386.
