Description This is a tool for learning the two Japanese alphabets. You can either play quest by quest, or choose your own settings in Practice mode. Instructions Your objective is to be skilled enough to beat the final test. Another important objective would be to score 10/10 on all characters of both alphabets. Your score for a character increases when you get it right, and decreases when you get it wrong. There is a Level indicator that roughly tells how skilled you are. It isn't useful or necessary for unlocking anything in the game, but I hope it will motivate you to keep going. In a test, draw the counterpart of what's on the top screen. Touch the X to erase what you drew. Touch the check mark to submit your answer. You can also use the A and B buttons as shortcuts. Notes Made by Sam Powered by poko.8's KNJLIB I'm open to any questions, requests, suggestions, etc. I currently do not plan to add more content in the future, but I'll definitely fix any reported bugs. Note: I have not tested the newest version for o3DS. It'll probably be fine, I think. Long live SmileBASIC! Version 1.0:
  1. Initial release.
Version 1.1:
  1. Implemented new settings
  2. Added a new way to submit answers
  3. Added a "I don't know" option
Version 1.2:
  1. Added a third way to submit answers: drawing. Much faster, but doesn't check automatically if the answer is correct or not.
  2. Improved the menu so you don't have to choose settings every time.
Version 1.3:
  1. Added the ability to choose which kanas show up in your test
  2. Disabled the obsolete ways to submit answers (please tell me if you want them back)
  3. Cleaned and repaired some code
Version 2.0:
  1. The menu has been completely rebuilt, with lots of color, shapes and animations (and love!).
  2. Added quests!
  3. Added an XP system so you gain levels as you get more skilled.
  4. Added a system so the game knows how well you know a particular character.
  5. Etc? I've been working on this for so long that I forgot what even was in the old versions and what wasn't. lol

Sam Sam Amazing Page Hidden Achievements Great Page Hidden Achievements Good Page Hidden Achievements I currently have no interest in making an app for Korean.

Express Yourself meh, it was worth a shot. I love the new update though! Sam Sam Amazing Page Hidden Achievements Great Page Hidden Achievements Good Page Hidden Achievements Sorry, still no kanji. It won't happen. I just don't feel like doing this style of test for kanji would be appropriate. To make people motivated to learn kanji, you need more than this. What I'd ideally want to do is make a game similar to a visual novel where you complete tasks in order for the story to progress. However, as I have very minimal artistic skills, that is not happening any time soon. If you're serious about learning kanji and Japanese vocabulary, my advice would be to play Japanese games, or read manga in Japanese, and translate yourself every word you don't get. Get immersed into the language. kenchic kenchic Avatar Taboo I didn't change my avatar for 180 days Website Third Year My account is over 3 years old Website osu! Is Awesome! I love osu!

I wanted to make something like this to help me study hira/kana but i was lazy. Can you do kanji next? Only the easier ones, of course. Thanks! kenchic kenchic Avatar Taboo I didn't change my avatar for 180 days Website Third Year My account is over 3 years old Website osu! Is Awesome! I love osu! Express Yourself I selected the first 5 kana and nothing else, but I was quizzed on other kana during the test. Maybe the kana selection system isn't hooked up to the test? Sam Sam Amazing Page Hidden Achievements Great Page Hidden Achievements Good Page Hidden Achievements The default settings have all the hiragana. Make sure you saved your settings? kenchic kenchic Avatar Taboo I didn't change my avatar for 180 days Website Third Year My account is over 3 years old Website osu! Is Awesome! I love osu!

Express Yourself :D Sam Sam Amazing Page Hidden Achievements Great Page Hidden Achievements Good Page Hidden Achievements I think this is the best time to start using NihonQuest. You could just practice and learn 5 kana every day! You're good to go after one month. And then you'll easily beat all the challenges I'll make in the next few days lol AnswerXOX AnswerXOX Great Page Hidden Achievements RNG Hidden Easter Eggs Second Year My account is over 2 years old Website What if I already know all the kana, would this heighten them?
