Great for practicing/learning grammar.
I've looked for a game to help me improve my grammar for quite some time. Tried a few but they didn't have that game addicting feel to them that's necessary to keep coming back for more. And practice is what I needed. This game does that. I like the premise. In this game the player is a debt ridden student who must grade papers for a curmudgeonly professor in order to earn money to pay off his/her debt. You can practice to your heart's desire and then pick Career mode and show the professor what you can do. (I have been fired so many times it's embarrassing but the humor within the game makes the failure a challenge and off I go to try again.)
The reason for 4 stars instead of 5 is that it took me awhile to figure out what the categories mean and exactly how to proceed (you do need to invest .99 to play anything more than the quick game) -- I would have liked a tab for "How to Play"
But now that I understand how it works I'm happily playing and I'm pretty sure I'll end up buy extra categories so I can keep playing. But, for now, I have plenty to keep me busy, and learning, for a long while.
Great App, Questionable Application
I love playing this game! I like developing my ability to notice details, and I have been getting a lot better at that in the last few days because of this app. Professor Snerp is hilarious, the app itself is well set-up and fun to play, and there are very few accidental grammatical errors within the game itself. I think that I found one, but that's not a huge deal.
The main problem I have found is with the capitalization errors. For instance, in the levels that have more of a handwritten look to them, it isn't always possible to tell the difference between a big "W" and a little "w." As a result, I sometimes have to guess whether that was the mistake I missed.
In keeping with this, there are sometimes capitalization errors with numbers. Numbers cannot be capitalized, so it should be impossible to have capitalization errors with numbers.
Challenging, interesting and educational.
This game is certainly engaging and is a great tool to practice editing and proofreading. I have found a couple of sentences without periods at the end and, of course, I get annoyed when I tap on those mistakes and am then docked time because the error was not intentional, which then makes me wonder if there are other instances that are, in fact, wrong but not intentionally done. I don't care for the timed aspect of this game. I also wish there was a version for kids. I would love for my boys to use this app to practice editing and proofreading!
