This is a rockbox version of the simple word game called "Target".
Rules: (stolen from The Age newspaper website)
"See how many words of four letters or more can you make from the letters shown in the grids.
In making a word, each letter must be used once only.
The word must contain the centre letter and there must be at least one nine-letter word in the list.
No plurals or verb forms ending with "s"; no words with initial capitals and no words with a hyphen or apostrophe are permitted. The first word of a phrase is permitted (eg inkjet in inkjet printer)."

Currently it only works on H300, iPod Photo and iPod 5g DAPs, but I plan to expand this to all bitmap targets soon enough.
The games are either user selected or loaded from the file target_wordlist.dat, I've included 10 puzzles, but there are heaps more on The Age newpaper's site (
