Word games are one of the most popular types of casual games on the Internet. Word Search is a word game that has you search for words hidden among what appears to be a random pool of letters.
While a very simple-looking game, Word Search requires some complicated ActionScript. If you have read through most of this book, then there shouldn't be any surprises in the code that pulls this game together. However, if you have just turned to this chapter, you'll probably need an intermediate-or-higher grasp of ActionScript to fully understand what is done here.
