Doesn't teach the words and the game is impossible
I was very disappointed with this game and I'm glad I didn't purchase the $9.99 game. The game doesn't teach the sight words. All the sight words are displayed on the screen and the child picks one. The word is spoken flashed on the screen and a keyboard appears. The child is expected to type the word. They don't even spell the word out loud for the child to hear! There's no progression. Once the child spells a few words correctly they need to jump 4 hairies across a chasm. After my daughter became frustrated she asked me to help her. I couldn't get the hairies to jump far enough! After trying 10 times I gave up and set off to type this review. This is marketed for dyslexics and children without learning disabilities will struggle with this app. Very poor design and NOT a learning app. We did like the graphics but that was all this game has to offer.
