Kanji Games website - apps & online games

The Kanji Games website introduces two apps specifically for practicing kanji reading, Kanji Connect and Kanji Crush. Another app called PhraseBot and several online html5 games are free and allow for use of play with Quizlet sets.

1) Kanji Connect is wordsearch-style game app for iOS & Android using common compounds based on JLPT-level kanji. You can choose kanji sets to study and progress is tracked for efficient review. The first set is free and all the higher sets can be unlocked for one low in-app purchase.

2) Kanji Crush is a match-3 style game for iOS, in which the matches can be based on shared readings or radicals, depending on the mode selected. This helps the player to make connections between readings, radicals and meanings. The first set is free and all the higher sets can be unlocked for one low in-app purchase.

3) PhraseBot for iOS/Android is a wordsearch-style game into which you can import vocabulary from Quizlet sets (plenty of good sets are available on Quizlet under the username 'kanjigames'). There are different modes which allow for options such as word/kanji on tile (allowing for sentence practice),  audio cue mode for listening practice, and inclusion of picture cues.

4) Several free HTML5 games are also available on the site (Quiz, AcrossnDown, LingoBingo) which add some more game elements and can be played against the computer or as a 'pass'n'play' game with 2 people.
