Spell your way out of a nuclear disaster playing awesome spelling games with your chosen word list: save the ship's gravity pods, launch an escape rocket, and salvage damaged space probes; have fun and boost your spelling power at the same time!
An asteroid shower has ripped through a group of Spelling Force probes, sending pieces of equipment and asteroid drifting through space. To collect the damaged probes, you have launched 'The Magno-Beamer' pod which attracts all surrounding objects to itself.
You must catch the pieces as they drift towards the pod or use the Beam Booster to suck them in. You can destroy any asteroids with the Pulse Laser or let them be vapourised on the force-field. Don't miss any pieces of probe and don't let an asteroid into the pod! Once you've collected all the pieces of probe, you must reassemble it in the S.P.R.O.U.T. (Space Probe Reassembly Operation Unit). Letters are presented randomly and you must gather, in any order, all letters needed to spell the word and discard the others. Letters must then be unscrambled to spell the word.
The planet Phyew is so hot, the air so toxic and the local inhabitants so noisy that the P.E.A.S. (Protective Energised Atmospheric Shield) for the Spelling Force Launchpad can only be opened for a short time each day.
The ignition code must be entered to launch the ship. The shield's shutters will begin to close but the ship must be clear before the dome slams shut. You must drag and drop letters from an alphabet to decode either one word or a set of words. Clues include letter shape or a different symbol for each letter.
The Spelling Force mothership is passing through a powerful X-ray storm. All crew have been ordered to put on their protective clothing but the ship's V.E.G.I.E.S. (Very Expensive Gravity Inducing Energy Sources) that power the ship have started to decay under the deadly radiation.
To turn off the V.E.G.I.E.S. and save as much of the energy as possible, you must recognise and type in the code (word) before the core is completely exposed. Words are built up on the screen with 12 different reveal styles (e.g. random pixels, top to bottom).
An automatic alarm has been triggered at T.U.R.N.I.P.S. (The Underwater Radio-Nuclear International Power Station). Spelling Force has been called in to shut it down before it melts down. To reach the station you must guide your submarine through a series of force-field gates. There are three switches but only one will open the gate. Once you are inside T.U.R.N.I.P.S. you must enter the correct shutdown code to avoid an environmental disaster!
You must make the correct choice when presented with a word and two of its common misspellings (ten words per game). Then recognise any incorrectly spelt words (one option only) from a list of ten.
