Dump : Download – Source Atarinside – .PRO format – Boot to Basic with the floppy inside your 1050.
Notes : 

You can find the author names in the basic source code : “REM REVISION 1.0–COPYRIGHT 1982 BY GREG L THRUSH AND MARIAN DILLASHAW”

But this is the version number in DISKNAME.DAT :

You’ll have to guess words in a dictionnary of 729 words. Howerver, it’s a bit buggy because there are sometimes no solutions.

There is an interresting interview with the authors by Kevin Savetz at The Atari 8-bit Podcast here: ANTIC #179. You’ll learn that they also wrote “Stock Management“.

There is an advertisement for WORD GO in L’Atarien N°3 on page 20.

Thanks @Rhod for the booklet scans 😎

Other translations : This game is in fact the exact original APX US game (with the same APX 20212 ref #) but…With a french box and a translated booklet.
