“Word Out” is a variation on the classic puzzle game “Tetris.” Players use the left and right arrows on the computer keyboard to direct falling letter blocks. The goal of the game is to arrange letters so that they form words that are three letters in length or longer. People can choose to spell words vertically or horizontally.

“Word Out” requires players to think ahead to spell words. While placing a letter, they can see the next letter on the left side of the screen. Also on the left side of the screen is a bonus word. If the players spell out the bonus word, they receive extra points.

In “Dragon University,” players enroll in the titular school and learn the knowledge and skills required for graduation. The gameplay consists of a series of minigames that require players to focus and read. In the first game, for example, they have to jump on the correctly spelled word to get the dragon across the river. Gamers control the game using the arrow keys on the computer keyboard.
