I play a lot of Wordfeud on various devices (online Scrabble-like game – imagine Words With Friends didn’t look like it’s for children), and I’m finding a disappointing lack of game tools out there. I’m not talking about cheat apps – there are plenty of those.
I’m interested in collating statistics and tracking my current games in progress – including counting which tiles have been played, current scores, etc. All of those kind of things are not classed as cheat tools – they’re the kind of thing you can do with a pen and paper.
Over the last couple of days I’ve started writing a Perl library to allow communication with the Wordfeud game server, as a first step. Once I have essentially written an API which provides access to all of the game client’s functionality then I can start writing some useful tools.
Everyone needs a hobby!
