Want to learn to read Japanese? Let’s start with Hiragana! A game teaching the Japanese through puzzles and arcade-style challenges.

Hiragana and katakana are both kana systems. Hiragana has been in use from about 800 onward. With one or two minor exceptions, each sound in the Japanese language (strictly, each mora) is represented by one character (or one digraph) in each system. This may be either a vowel such as “a” (hiragana あ); a consonant followed by a vowel such as “ka” (か); or “n” (ん), a nasal sonorant which, depending on the context, sounds either like English m, n, or ng ([ŋ]), or like the nasal vowels of French. Because the characters of the kana do not represent single consonants (except in the case of ん “n”), the kana are referred to as syllabaries and not alphabets.

By using puzzles this package can help a person memorize the modern hiragana syllabary consisting of 46 base characters.

Level 24 now includes a practice stage, to test your skills reading whole words in Hiragana. ‘Night mode’ is now part of the user interface: study anytime, anywhere. Hiragana Challenge now has a new Bubble Shooter game.

Overall it’s a solid little learning game for a very fair price. I do think the game needs a section select mode for the last level , so you can practice more where you are weak at.

This program can be slow to start. Even a SSD does not help. Once you get the game loaded you can select the language desired and the click back to start the lessons.
