This program was designed to aid in making word puzzles. The authour publishes a childrens' magazine, and Ballistic helps in making custom crosswords, word searches and other word games.
You can use the pre-made wordlists or even a custom wordlist, and easily filter the list to match certain criteria. It doesn't generate puzzles or games, but you can use it to find words that will fit in your puzzles. You can easily find a word that matches any pattern.
I made this program for myself and have hosted it for a few people, but it has never been officially released. This is my first public mention of the program.Features
