Introduction

Word Whomp Whackdown is a whacky gopher-bashing word game that requires good reflexes, great vocabulary and decent puzzle solving skills. Why strain when you can get a buddy that can do it for you? 

Rake in those tokens and become a Word Whomp Whackdown champion with Whackdown Buddy, the silent, efficient tool that solves even the most complex sequence of letters, in an instant.  

Entering the words into the game is a cinch. All it takes is a simple double click on the word (in the Whackdown Buddy list) and it is automatically entered for you.


The Interface (GUI)

Whackdown Buddy is simple and extremely easy to use. The interface makes it easy to accomplish tasks with a click of a button. The main console provides the list of words (sorted by letter length) needed to complete the current Word Whomp Whackdown round while the lower half provides all of the interactive buttons and a white box area that lets you know how many rounds have been completed. For those who want to see this lower part only, press the collapse button.

The interactive show hint button provides a useful way to see the next move - indicated by the gray text boxes turning green and the word being highlighted from the list. And of course the play hint will play it for you. The scan+solve feature will do exactly that - scan the letters on the game window and list all of the solutions. And let us not forget the autoplay feature! As the button suggests, this is where users can engage Whackdown Buddy in automatic play.

Whackdown Buddy also offers an arrangement of menu options: Options, Rooms and Help. You can learn more about these by reading below.


Menu Options

The Options menu allows you to access Whackdown Buddy's dictionary editor and settings and change them to suit your needs (see below). It also offers an opportunity to refer a buddy (tell a friend) about Whackdown Buddy and/or request a new feature.
The Rooms menu contains backdoor links to each of Pogo's Word Whomp Whackdown room topics.
The Help menu provides instructions on how to use Whackdown Buddy, a link to the Play Buddy Help Center, shortcuts to buy and register your copy, and a valuable Troubleshoot and Bug Report feature to use when Whackdown Buddy isn't working. But perhaps the most valuable feature here is the auto check at startup which automatically checks for any updates. 
Settings

Settings Action
Always on top Keeps Whackdown Buddy on top of all windows all the time.
Always hint Overrides the Show Hint button and displays the hint automatically.
Minimize to tray Sends the Buddy to the tray (instead of the taskbar) when the minimize button is pressed.
Always play again Keeps Whackdown Buddy starting new games automatically when autoplay is on.
Play time Sets the autoplay game time for X number of hours to infinite.
New game if stuck Begins a new game if ever the Buddy becomes stuck. If unchecked, Whackdown Buddy will wait for the timer to expire then begin the next new round.
Play sound on startup Turns the "Welcome to Play Buddy" greeting on and off. Also lets users insert their own sound file.
Dictionary Defines what dictionary Whackdown Buddy will use. The default dictionary can be swaped out with one of your choosing.
Play Speed Adjusts how slow or fast rounds are completed during autoplay.

The Dictionary Editor

The Dictionary Editor lets users do a search for a specific word. It also lists all the words in a convenient searchable format by providing a scrollable list. If a new word needs to be added or a specific word deleted, this is the place to do it. NOTE: Users can also delete words by right-clicking the word on the Buddy's GUI and selecting the option there.

 


How To Use

  • Log on to Pogo games with your username and password.
  • Launch Whackdown Buddy when your game opens. It automatically recognizes it and is ready to work.
  • Manual players can use the play hint and show hint options.
  • Autoplayers need only press the autoplay button to have Whackdown Buddy play the game automatically.

How To

Task Action
Scan the current game board and receive solutions list Click the Scan+Solve button on Whomp Buddy. The available word solutions are automatically detected.
Use a word from the results list All you have to do is double-click on the word in the Results window and Whackdown Buddy will automatically find its place and enter it on the board.
Enter Letters A powerful built-in feature lets users enter words manually by clicking in the squares. To move between fields click with the mouse into the next box or press the tab key. Once all letters are entered, press the enter key and the results will appear.
Find the definition of a word Right-click on the word to retrieve the definition.

Optimizing Performance

  • Speed versus Efficiency: To complete rounds quickly, checkmark "Always play again" and put the Play Speed to "fast" under the Buddy's Options. But beware! After a few fast rounds Pogo will begin reducing your points. So if efficiency is what you want, set the Play Speed to slow.
  • Definitions: To get the meaning (definition) of a word in the results list, right-click on the word and click on the Definition option that pops up.
  • Versatility: You can play manually, and/or while watching or playing another word game via entering the letters. When a square is clicked on in the GUI, users can type in a letter. Move between fields by clicking or using the tab key. Once all letters are entered, press the enter key.
  • Under cover: Don't want the Buddy to appear on your taskbar? Use the minimize to tray option!

HELP!

It won't recognize the game window

Double-check that you have the newest version available. Do this by using the check for update feature under the Help menu on the Buddy. Also, the "News" section at the top of this page has a link to "Updated Buddies." Here you can see if the Buddy has been recently updated and why. 

Now make sure that internet browser zoom is set to 100% and that you're using appropriate display settings.

It won't work

Select the Bug Report feature under the HELP tab on the Buddy. Fill in the required fields, capture the screen, and then send it. Play Buddy Support will receive it and respond to you via e-mail.
