This is a phonics based game for older children who struggle with reading and may have dyslexia. This game will give the child practice in identifying the following sounds: 'oy', 'oi', 'ou', 'ow' (as /ou/), 'igh' (as long 'i'), 'oo', and 'ay'.

The child will identify the sounds in the words that are called out. To do this, the astronaut will collect the sounds along with the robot pieces, so that he can build a robot and return to earth.

This game is targeted for those who struggle to read or may have dyslexia. It corresponds to the reading program, Blast Off to Reading! However, it is not necessary to be using that particular program.

This game contains no advertisements, push notifications or in-game purchases.

Ratings and Reviews

No sound


No sound therefore no idea what the instructions are... sound is a bit important!!!!!! Yes, the sound
Is working on my phone. Very disappointing purchase. Especially since I see that is an issue with another app after checking out reviews of other Blast off apps.

Developer Response

I'm very sorry you are having problems with the sound. Usually the reason is because the mute button is on. If you tried unmuting the phone (and check the volume) and still get no sound, please email the device type you are using, as well as the IOS. My email is: Thank you.
