Acrostix is a free "Wheel of Fortune" time word game in which the player tries to guess a given phrase. The game runs in text mode with pretty bare-bones presentation, which is okay because fancy graphics aren't really needed here. You're presented with a series of blank spaces, with letters under each column. You must determine which letters fill which spaces in order to spell out the given phrase. It's not that easy but still manageable. Users are able to create their own puzzles for others to try, which is necessary since the game only comes with a total of 20 puzzles by default. Back in the day this would've been done via a BBS but that has long since shut down. Anyways worth a try if you enjoy word games but don't expect long-term enjoyment.
