Battle Chinese Characters – One Goblin at a Time
Yay! – a blog post about learning Chinese characters that isn’t about Anki.
The other week I stumbled across this little gem from “The Traveling Programmer” a.k.a. Reddit user magictravelblog.
He has created a rather cute browser game to help fight the battle of revising characters. You simply use your keyboard “w-a-s-d” keys to direct your hero to the correct word and make sure you avoid the evil goblins.
It’s the 16-bit adventure the learning Chinese community has been waiting for!
On his reddit post the author explains some of the recent updates he has made to the game and we sincerely hope it continues to grow and mature.
Some things we’d love to see added:
- a toggle-able retro soundtrack
- a mobile/touch friendly version
