    (5) About Super TextTwist................................................About
    ==============================================================================
    
    Super TextTwist is the second installation of the very first game called
    "TextTwist". It has improved alot than the last game which i find very
    entertaining and of course, useful. The game has now a new mode which is
    called the Puzzle Mode ( Untimed Mode ). The players are given an unlimited
    time to solve for the longest word. I will explain all of it into the next
    following sections.
    
    ==============================================================================
    (6) How the game works....................................................Game
    ==============================================================================
    
    The game is played in two modes as explained below this section. Your main
    objective is to find the longest words of that level. The longest word has
    6 letters and some, 7 letters. You can adjust how many letters for the longest
    word in the Options. Your other objective is to complete and guess all the
    words in that level which gives a bonus if you did it before the time limit
    ends (except for untimed mode since there is no time limit for each level).
    
    In the game, the minimum number of letters you could guess is three(3). You
    cannot guess a two letter word because the game only put the three letter
    words as the minimum. However, the highest possible number of letters you
    could guess is seven(7). 
    
    Each level, you will be given a random set of letters. The given random set
    of letters always has at least 1 longest word and its impossible if there
    isn't. So let's say you have this given letters:
    
    P-A-R-E-I-R
    
    Using those letters, form out any words you could form out from the given
    letters. One word that you could form out is "RAP". In order to form the word
    "RAP", you will have to select the letters of that word. Do it in order
    because if you clicked "P" first, it might turn out as "PAR" but its still a
    word though. Now, let's say you click "R" now. The next thing you gotta do is
    to click "A". After that, click the last letter "P" to form the word "RAP".
    The same goes in forming other words as well.
    
    Let's say you almost got all the words. Your looking for the longest word.
    With the given set of letters: P-A-R-E-I-R, you can form 2 longest words. One
    is "RAPIER" and the other one is "PAIRER". Now, you got "RAPIER". There will
    be a confirmation screen telling you that you got the longest word of that
    level and can continue to the next level. However, if you like to have high
    scores, you would need to guess the other longest word for extra points
    although it isn't required since the game only asks you to guess 1 longest
    word of the level.
    
    ==============================================================================
    (7) Games Modes..........................................................Modes
    ==============================================================================
    
    There are two (2) game modes on this game. These are the Action Mode
    ( Timed Mode ) and the Puzzle Mode ( Untimed Mode ):
    
    Action Mode ( Timed Mode ) - This is most likely the same as the first game if
                                 you played the first one called "TextTwist". You
                                 are given a moderate time limit to solve for the
                                 longest word of the level. When the time runs out
                                 you fail the level but saves your score ( if you
                                 gladly made it to the high scores )
    
    Puzzle Mode ( Untimed Mode ) - This is just the opposite of the Action Mode.
                                   You are given an "unlimited" time limit to
                                   solve for the longest word of the level which
                                   is compared to Action Mode which has a time
                                   limit to solve for the longest word.

    |- Click on the balls to from words, then press the |ENTER| button. If the   |
    |  word is in the TextTwist dictionary, it will appear as a     _____        |
    |  dictionary icon on the left-hand side of the game. Use the  |TWIST|       |
    |  button when you get stuck to help you see other words.                    |
    (____________________________________________________________________________)
    
    You may also use the keyboard to enter words:
    
    SPACEBAR - Twists letters
    ENTER - Enter the word or repeat last word
    BACKSPACE - Remove last letter
    TAB - Clear all letters
    ESC - Switches to windowed mode when in full screen

    (9) Options................................................................Opt
    ==============================================================================
                                       Options
    
    *Note*: That all the settings you made here will affect the current
            game. Example is the volume toning.
    
    ==============================================================================
    (9A) Letter Words.......................................................Letter
    ==============================================================================
    
    *Note*: Also, for the "Use 6 LETTER WORDS", they will be in effect after you
            complete the current level you are still in. What I mean is, the
            effect you change here will be in effect for the next level.
    
    (o) = indicates the number of letter words in a level ( example: you pick "Use
          6 LETTER WORDS", it will have that circle thing (o) )
    
        USE 6 LETTER WORDS 
    (o) USE 6 AND 7 LETTER WORDS (o)
        USE 7 LETTER WORDS
    
    The second option is default when you just bought the game. It will change if
    you change it to the other 2 options. Whatever you picked, it will affect only
    the next level and not the current level.

    Let us break it down :
    
    Player (Player Name) - This is where you set your player name that will appear
                           in the High Scores tab. Note that you can use the same
                           name just as long as you qualified for the high score.
    
    Level (Level you lost) - The level wherein you lost. Simple as that.
    
    Score (Score for the whole level) - Your total score for the level you lost
                                        and your scores for the past levels that
                                        you completed.
