    Given the option to get feedback for wrong answers, kids will naturally start tapping every letter until they get a correct answer. I recommend that you have a submit button that then checks the word as a whole.

    Nevermind, I get that you're giving them 3 chances so that makes it less likely they will just blindly guess.

    The phrase "learn English words" is a bit strange as a description of your game. It's really about practicing spelling or recognizing animals and I think those should be the focus.

    You also need to pause the scene when a correct word is found. Right now, it's possible to still choose letters and lose chances when the "Great" or "Amazing" text is displayed. I would also recommend that the arrow actor be the only tap/touch responsive actor at that point so that stray taps don't generate a new word.

    You're dealing with young kids (I'm guessing your target audience is 5-7 year olds) so if you haven't already, get some kids to test it and give you their feedback. It will be much more valuable than mine! ;)

    Just make a more real looking camel. It looked like a fish when I first saw it
    Maybe just do one hump instead of two. Long neck. Fat mouth

    What're you talking about no support? You have many people willing to help on this forums. In fact some might even work with you privately. Don't worry about being alone :smile: We ALL help each other here.

    Nice game, seems fun... You can make it a little difficult by adding timer if you want.
