First of all, is the above game difficult to do? will it take a lot time?

I intend to do similiar stuff but without the GUI

Thanks

Get the class files out of the jar file... Jar is an archive...

Copy the below line in a batch file (i.e. jad.bat) near jad.exe
   jad.exe -sjava -ff -pv4 -noctor -nonlb -space -t -o *.class
Then place all classes which you've extracted from WordLadders.jar, near jad.bat
Now double click on jad.bat

You should first learn it. Read the soloutions to problems that are solved by BFS.
Then in this game you start from a root node and expand it to every other leaf node that is reachable from root.
For example "to"
Will lead to "ti" and "wo" and "yo"
And for each new node you have to perform the same strategy until you reach the answer
BFS can be implemented by a Tree or Stack data structure

You might not found anything similar similar, you should first get the idea behind BFS, and then start coding the game yourself
