App description

This App presents a set of short games, each practicing skills in matching letters, sounds, writing letters and using simple words. As children play they move through a series of levels the player completes more complex tasks. Multiple players (up to three players) can be added to the game to progress through levels separately and the parent settings allow an adult to select which skills and levels are practiced.

Reviewers comments

An App designed for young children to listen to simple instructions and complete tasks related to beginning literacy skills. At the time of the review the App contained 6 mini games practicing single letters, simple rhyme, sight word recognition and phonics. Parent settings allow parents to select levels and activities to focus practice on appropriate skills for your child. The ability to set specific tasks is a strength of this App, as is the ability to have up to three players, specifying tasks for each.

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.
