"You are CAPTAIN S. PELLER, starfighter pilot extraordinaire. Your mission: defeat the CHARACTERRORS, evil space aliens bent on galactic dominance.

Two points of interest:
(1) The game keeps track of what words can be formed from the strings currently on the left side of the screen, and will only ever allow letters in the magazine that can be the next letter in a valid English word.

(2) The game is written with processing.py
, Jonathan Feinberg's excellent Python port of Processing
