This is a very clever idea and it's a great example of something simple and minimal that still
works very well. The picture effects and the fact that it gets lots of words right are pretty
cool! I also like that it is replayable with different rules, although I guess at some point the
rules start repeating. I wanted to see all of the rules, so maybe it would be better structured
as levels. Anyway, that's a minor digression, you made a really nice game!

Wow, really creative! An impressive array of words recognized, though of course it didn't get
everything. The secret rules could have used a little more variety. I especially found
plodding through the alphabet to be tiresome. But there's only so much you can do without
making them really obscure, I suppose. Since you have images of so many things, one idea that
might work well is to give an example of a green thing instead of a text hint. I had some fun not
even playing, just entering "A" repeatedly and seeing what images came up.

I dunno how you did it, but the word-to-image effect is very cool. I have no idea how I guessed the
five things right off the bat. Unfortunately without anything to cue, lead, or prompt me I
could only guess at words and see if an image comes up. It was fun while the novelty lasted. I hope
you decide to do more with this.

I have read the whole readme, but I'm missing the point of guessing random words linked with a
hidden abstract rule...

this game tested my knowledge of English, is very fun.

The idea is really cool, and the graphics and musics are nice. My only remark would be that any
word is accepted, even non-existing ones.

Fun, but the learning curve is "Hard to pick up, easy to master" so only fun for a little bit.

Great idea. Great game.

Refreshing new game idea. The drawings were not good, but funny :) The game did not check if the
entered words existed. You may look into using a wordlist / dictionary to only allow actual
words. The presentation of the images on the screen is very impressive. On the whole: good job!

Quite fun to play, good production values, nice, simple concept … tried two and found one
fairly easy, the other a bit hard. Needs to have multiple hints for when you get lots and lots of
wrong answers ...

This is a very interesting game concept and I was really amazed at all the words that had
drawings. I think that the first 15 words I put in there had an appropriate picture. I really
liked the visual effect of doing the drawings - it really felt like they were being drawn in
response to my typing. Really great idea - I'd like to see where this could go as a full game!

This was a really cool idea and I loved the dissonance, for example when I typed "granola" I got a
handgun. But for a surprising number of other things I typed I actually got a picture of that
thing. But I'm not totally sure what qualifies as a "good" and "bad" guess, because I got by on
some pretty gibberish guesses. Could use some feedback.

I could not figure out the theme and i spent a lot of time trying and the hints were not help full.

I LOVED this game. This is something that could be taken for modern art - I had a lot of fun trying
to figure out the patterns and throwing out random combinations of letters that would still
unlock the rooms. The drawings generated were a lot of fun. Very unique ideas going on in this
game. Nice work!
