As far as language game apps go, this apple app is my favourite. It has a very childish aesthetic yet is also surprisingly polished, and has multiple methods for helping to increase your vocab (an area I struggle with)
The app gives vocab packs (body parts, dates, food, etc) and you attempt to level up by “Mastering the words” in said packs. Most of the games are fast paced and rarely last longer than a minute which makes it surprisingly addicting. (though they would last indefinitely if I was better at them) My personal favourite is the game with a goldfish who will continue to have the water drained out of his bowl unless you guess the right word. As you get more right answers you start having to react faster. Somehow I find this one the most addicting game, though they are all pretty good.
My one qualm with the app is that I find you progress a little too quickly, and have no way (that I’ve seen) to “undo” your progress. I would like to spend a bit more time locking certain packs to memory… or maybe even ease myself back into it when I’ve left the game for a while.
You start out with 1 or 2 packs free with the game but the rest can be unlocked through an in app purchase
