Guess & Spell: Halloween is a Halloween themed app for kids learning spelling. The app has a simple and fun gameplay and a scalable hint system to make the use easy or challenging enough for kids just starting their spelling or advanced readers.

► DESCRIPTION

BOO! Halloween is here again! Halloween is all about party and fun, but now it is also learning! And fun and party of course. Guess and Spell: Halloween is a spelling game, where user first taps some images away to reveal the image, and then tries to guess what the image is about, and then tries to spell it with the given letters. The app gives instant feedback about all actions, and helps the user to pursue the right order of letters. No scores, no points, no coins. The built-in fun of the gameplay and sometimes funny sounding Speech Synthesizer keeps the user's focus and interest and goal in spelling the word correctly. Halloween things are just so fun and interesting!

The app itself is VERY easy to use, so kids can manage with it all by themselves. The scalable and adjustable hint system makes the app suitable for wider age span of children, starting from pre-K kids all the way to 2nd graders with advanced reading and spelling capabilities. It is also a fun game to play together too, and see the joy of succeeding.

The Whopping Apps family has over a million downloads already since 2011. Guess and Spell: Halloween is the latest addition into the selection, released in September 2015. This app is the first of the Guess and Spell series, and more apps with similar functionality, but different themes, will follow.

► THE HINT SYSTEM

PLEASE NOTE! Watch the instructions video from the Teachers Menu, everything written below is explained there. You're taken to the Teachers Menu on the first launch and then You can access it by tapping and holding the "hat" button for five seconds. You can disable the Teachers Menu button from the device settings.

● Speech hint. If you don't guess the word by the image, you can listen the word by the superb iOS Speech Synthesizer.
● Bomb away extra letters. You can throw some of the extra letters away to help spelling the word correctly.
● Place a correct letter. This hint puts a letter on its right place to help the spelling. This is something you can adjust a lot! You can disable the hint completely, or you can set how many letters are given per word (1-3). Or you can set that it gives enough letters, that user must guess at least 1 (up to 5) letter by him/herself, no matter how long the word is.
● You can disable or enable an individual hint completely.

● The dynamic hint system is killer feature! Dynamic hint system brings more hints, when user is guessing wrong. After first wrong guess, the Speech Hint button appears, after 2nd guess the Bomb will appear and finally the Place a letter button – in terms of are they individually enabled or not.
● There are no limitations on tapping the blocks away, they're there just for fun and to ignite some self-challenging.
● Neither the words are not getting more challenging along the way.
● Choose the length of the gameplay from the device settings. Options are: 15/30/45/60 images, making the game suitable for quick fun or for an intense spelling lesson.
