What is Word Search?

Word Search is a crosswords maker for early Macs.  You can make a words list and then hit the "Make Puzzle" menu item to generate a crosswords sheet.  You can then print it on real paper.  There is no clickable words or anything playable directly on the Mac itself, except that there is a menu item which will show the solution by crossing all the words on the screen.

Note: It's not shown on the gameplay screenshot, but both versions can do diagonal words, not just vertical and horizontal.
