As a side project, we would like to create a simple “crossword game”, with some features like a hint/autocomplete text option and PC/Mobile compatibility.
We’re at the very begining - in a “concept” phase actually - we had a quick look around, but didn’t find anything related which could be of use
Has anyone faced a similar challenge before?
Any thoughts or suggestion would be greatly appreciated!
What features/functionality are you looking for specifically?
nothing really special i think
Just a “plain crossword” game, with an autocomplete option (which completes a letter),
something similar to this
But usable on both, mobile and PC and with some fancy grapichs maybe
We have the words, and we can generate the puzzle with the help of an online tool,
our blocker is: “How do we implement the puzzle structure on PC? making it usable on both input devices?”
As a bonus, we would like to make it multilang EN/ITA, but that can come later!
Thanks as always
It sounds like you want to use the native keyboard rather than implementing your own or taking a library like (https://mottie.github.io/Keyboard/).
If that’s the case, you would want to utilise a hidden text DOM element that can be used to trigger and input text to that is then copied over to an in game text element.
