Spell-Tastic Lite


I wrote this game as a fun way for my 7 year old son to practice his weekly school spelling test.

The game uses an approach similar to 'read-remember-cover-write' which is endorsed by schools in the UK.

Children see words dropping from the top of the screen, and around mid-way the letters are jumbled.

When the letters reach the bottom of the screen, the child must drag them to re-create the original letter-order.

If they get it wrong, they are shown the word again, and then get another go.

The game is is against the clock, and features two modes, one for learning weekly tests entered by a parent and another for learning new words from a built-in dictionary.

In the 'Pro' version of the game,it is possible to enter any number of tests, each of which can have any number of works.

This version is restricted to a single test with a small number of words.

This version now supports 12 character words, which was a feature requested in the first review the app received.

Please email me before posting bad reviews, as I will endeavour to resolve your issue as best I can!
