    5) About BookWorm Deluxe...............................................[ABOUT]
    ==============================================================================
    
    BookWorm Deluxe is the very first installation of the game in the BookWorm
    series. Bookworm Deluxe is a PC game that can be downloaded on the internet.
    This game is like a scrabble game but you should form words that are adjacent
    to it. This game also expands your vocabulary so its helpful to you gamers.
    
    ==============================================================================
    6) How the game works....................................................[HOW]
    ==============================================================================
    
    This game is played in two modes. One is the Classic Mode and the other is
    Action Mode. Whichever mode you take, the gameplay is the same. In this game,
    your main objective is to form words using blocks.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    6A) The Basics.........................................................[BASIC]
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    CONTROLS:
    
    Left click - Select option/Select letters.
    Double left click - Submits the letters highlighted.
    ENTER - Submit the letters highlighted.
    Right click - Deselects all letters highlighted.
    
    The minimum letters you can form is only 3 letters. However, the maximum
    number of letters you can form out is 8 letters. So far, that word is
    "BOOKWORM". In this game, there is no time limit so there is so much time to
    look for words. In order to form words, you will have to click the block with
    an assign letter on it. Let's say these are the set of blocks on your game:
    
     I T
    A N
     F
    
    Using those letters, you can form "FAN", "TIN", "NIT", "AIN", "FAIN" and using
    all letters, "FAINT". For each of those words you formed out, these are the
    scores you will receive:
    
    FAN: 150 pts.
    TIN: 180 pts.
    NIT: 180 pts.
    AIN: 150 pts.
    FAIN: 400 pts
    FAINT: 600 pts.
    
    However, there are still words you can form out not only my given set of
    blocks. Take this another example:
    
    T
    SF
    TA
    AIN
     N T
    
    Using those letters, you can now form "FAT", "FATS", "SAIN", "TAN", "TINT",
    "FAN", "SAT", "TIN", "AIN" and the 2 longest words you can form out: "SAINT
    and "FAINT". For each of those words you formed out, these are the scores you
    will receive:
    
    "FAT": 270 pts.
    "FATS": 400 pts.
    "SAIN": 240 pts.
    "TAN": 180 pts.
    "TINT": 320 pts.
    "FAN": 150 pts.
    "SAT": 150 pts.
    "TIN": 180 pts.
    "AIN": 150 pts.
    "SAINT": 400 pts.
    "FAINT": 600 pts.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    6B) Advanced.............................................................[ADV]
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    The last section explained how to form words using normal blocks. But what if
    you form words whose blocks have colors? Blocks with colors (Burning Blocks,
    Green Blocks) also add more points to your score if you infuse one of those
    letters onto your word. If you form the word "FOU" with letter "O"'s block
    being green, your score will be 500 pts. However, if you form "FOU" without
    the letter "O"'s block being green, you would only form 300 pts. That is why
    it is essential to form words with green blocks. But there are still some more
    colorful blocks that will increase your score even more.
    
    Yellow Blocks add around 150+ pts for 3-letter words, around 200+ pts for
    4-letter words and so on. In some and very rare occurences, blue blocks will
    increase your score by 200+ pts for 3-letter words, around 250+ pts for
    4-letter words and so on.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    6C) Backwarding letters.................................................[BACK]
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    Some words, especially 3-letter words, has this feature that will let you
    invert those letters that would form another word. Words like "BUS", "TIN"
    and so forth can form another word by just using those letters again. However,
    you will get the same score but its worth a try. For the word "BUS", you can
    form "SUB". Either of those words you formed out, you will get 270 pts. For
    the word "TIN", you can form the word "NIT". Both words gives you 210 pts.
    
    ==============================================================================
    7) Game Modes..........................................................[MODES]
    ==============================================================================
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    7A) Classic Mode.....................................................[CLASSIC]
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    - This is the basic mode you will most likely play with. Time isn't competing
    with you in this mode not unlike Action Mode where burning blocks will just
    appear within a few seconds only.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    7B) Action Mode.......................................................[ACTION]
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    - This mode is the opposite of Classic Mode. It is the same in nature as the
    gameplay is the same in this mode. But the difference is, burning blocks (red
    blocks) will appear rapidly so you have to clear some blocks faster(a bit) in
    this mode.
    
    ==============================================================================
    8) Other Options.......................................................[OTHER]
    ==============================================================================
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    8A) Hall of Fame........................................................[FAME]
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    - Records all your high-scores in this mode. When you first bought this game,
    there will be some high-scores listed by the developers just to give you what
    lies inside here. Other than that, there is another option on the upper-right
    corner of this screen. It is a feature to send your scores online in the
    internet. But currently, the game doesn't support any more scores online so
    it is useless to click that link.
    
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    8B) Quit................................................................[QUIT]
    ------------------------------------------------------------------------------
    
    - Quits the game. Simple. Closes the BookWorm Deluxe game and returns you to
    your desktop.
    
    ==============================================================================
    9) Options...............................................................[OPT]
    ==============================================================================
    
    In order to access the game's option, you must first be on a game mode. It
    maybe Classic Mode or Action Mode. Start or continue the game if you have a
    previous saved game. Here, you can adjust:
    
    MUSIC
    - Move the gem-looking block to the left to tone the music down or to the
    right to hear the music even louder.
    
    SOUND FX
    - Same as the music, move the gem-looking block to the left to tone the sound
    lower or to the right to tone it higher.
    
    FULL SCREEN
    - What it does is to maximize the screen to its largest (1024x768). Checking
    the box will make it full-screen. However, un-checking the box will return to
    its normal size.
    
    SHOW HINTS
    - This will show hints and tips while playing the game in any mode. Check the
    box to show hints. Or un-check the box to disable hints.
    
    HARDWARE ACCELERATION
    - Not sure what this does.
    
    CUSTOM CURSORS
    - Provides customized cursors for BookWorm Deluxe instead of your normal cursor
    to enhance a more, cooler BookWorm Deluxe experience. Check the box to enable
    the custom cursors. Otherwise, un-check the box to disable the custom cursors
    and use your current mouse cursor.
    
    SHOW DEFINITIONS
    - Shows the definition of some words you entered. Check the box to enable. Or
    un-check the box to disable.
