Some time ago, Mike018 posted to the forum about a new game he'd made for learning to read Japanese. It was a really great concept and now it's back, this time teaching Chinese: "Hi all, I’ve been working on a mobile game that teaches you basic vocabulary. I released 2 languages a few months back and have got a lot of positive feedback, so I have just recently added more languages, including Chinese!

What this game does that separates it from other educational games is that it’s built from the ground up as a game first, meaning that it plays just like a fun and quick mobile game. Another goal I had is that when you close it, you will actually remember the words that you learned outside of it’s context. It seems obvious that an educational app would have this “feature” but I’ve had issues with a lot of apps that I’ve used before where if someone quizzes me on the content within the app when I’m not playing it, I can barely recall anything."

I love seeing Phaser used for games like this, especially as it was so fun to play and I genuinely felt like I was learning to read the words. iOS versions should be out shortly.
