Better before The older version gave you more. Made it easier to learn. The notebook had the words and colors in it it was so you could really know what you were looking at. Not only that, but when you began they showed you the spelling and the romanji spelling as well after showing you a bit they took away the romanji and just left the hiragana eventually that would go to. But it was built better for real beginners. Sad update.
Hey, we're learning here! In a nutshell, it's hard, it's fun, it's hilarious, it's cheap, and it teaches you. Honestly, it forces you to learn, but in a motivating kind of way. I never thought I'd be learning Kanji so early! Puzzles are really difficult, though. Here's a hint for the color puzzle; 青+黄色=green. That shouldn't give anything away you haven't learned yet. :3
Fun way to learn Japanese This is a good complement to a more serious app, such as Human Japanese. I can't believe I'm actually learning kanji from this game. Also building vocabulary. Feel free to connect on G+ if you want to swap tips. I got all the stones, including the black stone. Still cannot enter bookstore employee door or approach the Family Mart crater. Update: Now that I went back to Human Japanese, I realize I wasn't learning some words correctly. E.g., mijikai applies to duration and not height.
Cool beans It is a great game for me to use on top of the Japanese I already study. However, it's hard to figure out what to do in this game. I just got the black stone and now there's nothing I can do. The stupid ramen lady won't take my stones, can't do anything about the peanut shop mystery, and you can't do anything inside the family mart. I've tried everything. Fix your game please.
What's going on...? Great app, very effective teaching method etc...by why are some actions disabled? Is it unfinished or have I missed something? Aaaargh! Would be an easy 5+ stars if it works! I hope it 's just me and I missed something lol
An enjoyable app, I have very much enjoyed this adventure game the drills are interesting and useful. However, like others I cannot seem to understand the intent of the colour puzzle or figure out how to give the shop owner the red and green stones. Otherwise I would give it five stars.
