A gem of a learning application, with a great concept for combining education and gaming fun.
Crazy Mike's Apps

The experience is on-par or better than Byki or Rosetta Stone and we can’t applaud it enough. It is unbeatable value for the language learner.

This app encourages quick learning of words and is a wonderful tool for learning as it makes it fun and quick.
Tessa Alfred

“As it’s for beginners, and all about fun, there’s no writing – just aural and visual recognition….and so the app’s nicely-drawn and cartoony visuals come to the fore” - Penn Olson


√ Learn more quickly than with flash cards.
√ No translation! Learn the same way you learnt your first language.
√ Learn to recognize both the simplified Chinese text as well as the sound, spoken by a native Mandarin speaker.
√ 3 stages and 41 levels that each get progressively more difficult to ensure your mastery of a set of words.
√ Fun arcade style gameplay that takes the tedium out of learning Mandarin Chinese vocabulary.
√ Ideal for beginner - intermediate Chinese Mandarin students.
√ Great for travellers to pick up some useful vocabulary whilst on the plane, train, bus or boat.

Words are organized into themed language packs and you are required to beat all the levels in each stage for a pack before advancing to the next stage.

Mandarin Madness is ideal as a companion tool for those beginning to learn Mandarin Chinese but is also great for those whose Chinese is a little rusty from disuse and need to refresh their vocabulary.

Travellers too will find it a great way to acquire some useful words to assist in the myriad of situations a traveller finds themselves.

Customer Reviews

Enjoyable Experience

I'm on an iPhone 6 and though I'd like to see it fully optimized to the new resolution (please! 😍💗) the price of the app is worth the learning.

I do however face a few loading bugs once I've finished a level and move to a new category.

The menu will not display and I'll need to force close the app and restart.

Thank you though for a great app. I'll test if needed!

I hope you guys read this and help make the app even better!


I rate with 5 due to my love for mandarin
