Video Game: Word Whiz
Word Whiz is a trivia game written for DOS, published by Apogee Software. It consists of various questions about different English words.

Word Whiz was distributed as shareware. It consists of four volumes (named Volume 1 to 4), with only the first volume distributed as shareware, and the rest available commercially. Each volume has 100 multiple choice questions, each one about a specific word.

Word Whiz is written in Turbo Pascal 5.0 and the source code was for sale for $100.

The game was discontinued, and it was later re-released as freeware by Apogee in December 2005. The source code for the game was released under GPL on March 20, 2009.
