I made a game to help study kanji readings. Below is part of the instructions.
Blocks labelled with kanji fall toward the bottom of the screen. The point of the game is to shoot down the blocks with missiles labelled with pronunciations.
If a missile with an incorrect pronunciation hits a block, the block is not destroyed. If the block reaches the bottom of the screen, it explodes and causes the player damage. When the player's life bar is empty, the game ends.
In the gameplay menu, the player can control how many blocks there are and how fast they fall.
Use left and right on the direction pad, or drag with the stylus.
Press A or tap the space above the cursor.
Press B or tap the space diagonal to the cursor.
The nds file is attached, as are two screenshot files. Another copy of the nds file and the source code are here:
The full instructions are at kanjistrike.sourceforge.net/readme_ds.html
IMPORTANT This must be run on a DS, not an emulator, and there must be a folder called 'ks' in the root of the flashcart. This is to allow save files to be written and stored.
Thanks very much for taking a look at my game.
