Learn Japanese kanji by dropping blocks to make kanji and words! Make kanji from their parts and words from other kanji! Blow them up by making words! Fill your limit meter by making kanji from others and watch your blocks blow up!

It's a great way to learn kanji for beginners, a fun alternative to flashcards for advanced learners as you can import your Anki, WaniKani, and Koohii decks, and a fun game overall! :D

Learn all Japanese jouyou kanji for fun or proficiency. Every time you make a word or kanji, its meaning is spoken and you also hear the pronunciation of words. You also learn how to make kanji from their parts, just like in Remembering the Kanji, Vol. 1, by James Heisig. You can restrict learning to JLPT 1-5 kanji or textbook lessons from popular Japanese textbooks!

Open to all skill levels! It starts off easy and gives you hints when you're stuck. Keep playing and you'll find yourself recognizing more and more kanji! You can select Easy/Learning mode to have more time to read about the kanji and words you make!

In this game, you get to make combinations of kanji characters to form various japanese nouns/verbs/adjectives, which you can study and favorite by pressing the star on its upper right. You can combine kanji radicals and make characters change their meaning to create new words, it’s wonderful.

As a new character/radical begins to fall down, a cute bubble sound shows up and the meaning of the word is read aloud.

No other app i’ve seen for kanji is quite as addictive as this fun, simplistic looking yet surprisingly challenging Tetris-style game. I can’t wait for a sequel to this, like a gradius or Star Soldier type game with spaceship/rocket that must shoot down the correct kanji character/word to succeed.

So wonderful

This app is great. For someone who is learning Japanese this is a great resource for me! It is so simple, but you can learn so much! The features are amazing! I especially like the story they give for each kanji/radical and all of the settings allow you to play at any level of difficulty, you can exclude words you’ve already learned, you can see only common words, you can pause the game anytime and look at the words you just created, which is what I do, and it really helps with the conceptual ideas of the kanji/radicals beyond just memorizing them. It even shows you how to write the kanji. There is like one ad every so many times you click the little dictionary and it’s fairly short too. The fonts are cool, they remind me of an old arcade game. There are even little images behind the kanji to help you remember them! At first I thought this game would be cheap from the picture (which is my only recommendation, get a new app photo for the store so it looks more appealing, if this game dies out I will be so sad!) but this game is so in depth and helpful and clearly someone put a lot of thought into making it. Thank you so much! Keep it up! Make more things like this!

It’s surprisingly useful. I’ll let you know in advance that you will be utterly confused as soon as you start playing, especially if you don’t know kanji. I know that since I don’t know kanji at all. It does work surprisingly well though. You slowly learn the different kanji and what they mean. It’s also decently entertaining. Even if you’re not trying to learn, it’s the sort of game that you might just end up playing casually if you’re bored and want to be productive. Overall, it’s a pretty good game. It’s relatively fun and a good way to learn kanji if you don’t feel like memorizing everything.
