Overall it's a cute experience... But there's an actual educational element to it I like it learning beginner and it's easy enough to understand what he wants I'm not able to do the roller coaster game all that well. For a child it might be just a little bit more difficult if Japanese isn't their first language and they're not around it that often mainly because the character doesn't speak any English to give any indication of what he actually wants you have to literally listen for what he wants

Although the Samsung "S-Pen" is supported, the "back" button on the device is not supported to exit the app. The app is also forced into landscape mode only, making it difficult to use whilst commuting, etc.

I feel like this game is meant for learning hiragana more than anything. It would be great it the games had English instructions. Btw, for the roller coaster game, pick the word that starts with the ending of the last word. It took some trial and error for me to figure out how that one worked. I would say this game is more for kids who can understand Japanese but are learning to write.

Yes, the main goal of this app is to learn Hiragana(Japanese Alphabet). Shiritori in roller coaster game is a common Japanese game, but may be hard to understand at first. Thank you for the feedback!
