Q-Word is a word game which is a mixture between Tetris and Scrabble.

The program makes the most of the new graphics modes and QL-SSS sound capabilities available on the latest versions of the Sinclair QL, such as the Aurora motherboard, the Q40 and Q60 computers and emulators such as QPC2 and Q-emuLator.

The aim of the game is simple - you need to clear a grid of letters by making as many words as you can from consecutive letters in the grid. Points are awarded depending on the letters used as well as the length of the word.
