Kanji Strike

Kanji Strike - 1.0

kkd (kkdorn)



This is a clone of Kanji City Defender, a web game I played a few years ago. The point is to shoot down meteors by matching kanji with their pronunciations. It has a few small animation bugs, but mostly it's ok. Although users previously had to find their own unicode font before using Kanji Strike, one has now been included.


Code reorganization but not many changes visible to the player. Ume-Font is now included, so users don't have to find their own font. Also, the grade level menu has been scrapped and replaced with the ability to mark a whole grade as mastered on the 'file data' screen. This update is actually kind of old. Sorry.

Thanks for the support. skizzaltix, I'll try separating the images for the next release.

Ooh, neat idea! Almost makes me regret having learned the basic 2000 already.

Though, might I suggest that you have a separate directory for images? It'll make the folder a little nicer to look at.
Anyway, good job!

Nice! It's nice to see more Japanese learning games popping up.

Certainly good for review, though learning in context initially is the best method that I've found.
