Dear All,
Here is a game for Kids. Aged 5 yrs.
The installing instructions are very easy.
1) Save this code as 'guess_spelling.pl', say at 'C:\Game'
2) Create a folder 'Guess_letters' inside 'C:\Game'
3) Save gif images of different pictures, in the folder ''C:\Game\Guess_letters' (for e.g. Egg, Hut, Hat, Rat .... etc.). Sorry this game can be played with max 4 lettred words.
4) While saving.. save the images with their real spelling (for e.g. egg.gif, Hut.gif, hat.gif, rat.gif...etc.)
5) Now come back to the parent folder ('C:\Game') Save two pictures 'smiley20.gif' (Smiley face) and 'smiley33.gif' (Angry Face) ..approx 40 x 40.
6) If possible (This step is optional, but it adds more fun to this game) create two wav files
(better in your voice, child like his Mom/dad's voice).
      a) 'right.wav' (Saying something like '<Name of Child> You are Correct').
      b) 'wrong.wav' (saying something like '<Name of Child> please try again').
Save these files in 'C:\Game'. If you want to skip this step then you can comment 'use Win32::Sound;' from the script.
5) run command 'perl guess_spelling.pl'

This will show different images on the screen. Child has to create spelling by clicking correct alphabets. He/She has to click on 'OK?' button then. if correct, it will play 'right.wav' and show smily20.gif. If wrong it will play 'wrong.wav' and show 'smiley33.gif'.

Once again I apologize for Not commenting it correctly. I created this game in hurry for my Kid. My last post Tk: pair matching game . I received nice instructions for improvement but I am sorry I have Not implemented those here.
