Word association game with picture cards
In each level of Happi Connect & Collect, kids are introduced to 3 picture cards, which all have one thing in common – and this similarity is the missing word. If kids see a tiger for example, a clown and an admission ticket, the missing word could be circus.
The solution word is then spelled with the letter platelets, which are spread out at the bottom of the screen. There are also letters which aren’t needed, mixed with the correct letters, in order to make it a bit more challenging for kids, so that they don’t guess the solution word straight away. The number of letter boxes kind of hint out which word could be wanted. In our example on the left, it is the word hot.
Awesome helpful lifelines
Happi Connect & Collect offers a multi-level and truly well-planned auxiliary function. If kids do not guess the word by looking at the cards and counting the empty boxes, they get the chance to have the word class shown to them. In our example “hot” we’re looking for an adjective. If this still doesn’t help, there are three more lifelines:
1. a short text hint i.e. “not cold” with the solution word hot
2. The first letter of the word is faded in
3. All redundant letters are removed
We’re also demonstrating those lifelines in our YouTube trailer of the app.
Funny Collectors cards
Even if the word association game as such is fun and motivating enough as it is, there is still an interesting reward system. For every correct word, kids receive 1 to 3 stars, depending on how good they solved the word. These stars can be used to get some cool and funny collectors cards. A big collector’s album is waiting to be filled with cards, which all have funny messages and pictures on them. The name of the cards and the messages also motivate kids to read.
Multilingual and with narration
The app is a multilingual app and therefore suitable for learning foreign languages, as all picture cards are read out to the kids. The friendly narration is also just as good as the pleasant and happy music, which accompanies the game.
