This game is for when you have nothing better to do and want to brush up on your spelling. Either way it's a nice throwback to earlier kid's puzzle games :-)

This game is tiny, but challenging.
The wicked Word Wizard has transformed you into a frog. In order to escape, you have to navigate his five-story castle. Explore each room, solve each word puzzle, complete the password, uncover the portal, and you're gone.
There is a trick, though. The wizard has given you a "time limit" and performing actions such as solving puzzles or moving from room to room costs time. And even if you do solve all his puzzles correctly, success in this game depends on whether or not the wizard has chosen to be generous. Finding the puzzle that reveals the portal is mostly by chance, as the wizard could easily waste all your time rewarding you with dud letters that don't belong in your password (after all, he doesn't want you to win, so of course he wouldn't play fair). I'm fairly certain that I've never managed to win unless the wizard had blessed me with an ample "time bonus". And be sure to read your clues carefully; the wizard gives answers that either look alike or have similar meanings, but only one answer is the right one that makes sense in context. If you pick a wrong answer, he'll tell you why it's wrong while he's gloating.
However, if you do lose, there's no need to worry. The game is short and small enough that losing is no big deal. Just start over from the beginning and try again.
