Awesome awesome awesome
I didn't think the game would be this fun. It's a great way to help you learn hiragana, but also learning it the characters quickly. As in, when you see the character you automatically think of the sound rather than have to think of a pneumonic and then the sound comes to mind. I also like that the pattern changes up! It's not just ああいう ああいう every time. You actually get to learn it! This game is wonderful! Oh yeah and I also love how sometimes they give you the character and you have to guess the English. It's a great way to make sure you actually know the character and the sound and the English. I love this game!
Music drowns out letters/ characters sounds :(
I've only gotten about 4 missions in, so I can't comment about much but it seem fun so far and it does help by mixing things up and not doing it in the same order.
As the title states, the music, even at minimum, drowns out the sounds of the characters and it's really hard to hear it at times. When the music is off, I feel like it's a bit harder to play because there's no cues (for me anyway). Adjusting SFX sound levels does not affect volume of characters unfortunately!
Recommended for Japanese Learners
This is a very entertaining game. It has a simple, yet powerful concept behind it. It's helped me very much in learning how to read, translate, and speak Japanese characters very quickly. I only have one request, though. I would love to upgrade, but no matter where I look, there are no prices for upgrades. Please add this in.
