App description

This App explores simple words, adding sounds and identifying words through a series of mini-games

Reviewers comments

Within this game the player can select a series of activities, with six mini-games exploring simple words and combining letters to make words.  The American accent was challenging to some Australian children and in user testing parents reported that the spoken rewards such as “well done” and “great job” were repetitive and hard to turn off.  In these users testing sessions the children liked the characters and graphics in the App and for children beginning to sound out simple words this App could afford opportunity to practice.

About games and gambling

Most games contain elements of risk, chance and knowledge, that is why they are fun to play. There is growing concern about the impacts of simulated gambling games on the health and wellbeing of children. That's why we are identifying games that contain gambling elements on our site.

The State Government of South Australia's web site http://nogame.com.au/ contains information about these concerns.
