    If you're a fan of word and grammar games you'll enjoy suffering with The Grading Game. But if you are or ever were a TA, you might want to gird your soul before playing. This one hits a little close to home.

    The Grading Game is a welcome change of pace and a solid fit for touchscreen devices. After suffering through numerous classes years ago, it's refreshing to play a game that makes learning fun. That said, grab your virtual pen and let the red ink flow.

    There's precious little out there that's quite like The Grading Game. Being able to educate people about important subjects and life skills, such as the ability to string a sentence together, is a worthy thing in itself. The fact it's hugely entertaining makes it all the better.

    Most of the time, though, The Grading Game is pretty cool-assuming your idea of cool is finding other people's mistakes and punishing them.

    It might lack a bit in variety, but if the idea sounds like a good one to you, there's plenty here to enjoy.

    It's undeniably a one-trick pony, then, but it's a good trick, performed with flair and polish. Those inclined to correct grammatical howlers in friends' Facebook missives will find this a far less confrontational way of sating their inner pedant.

    I played this game at school once. I was immediately hooked and I knew I had to get it on my personal iDevice. You simply grade random collegeI played this game at school once. I was immediately hooked and I knew I had to get it on my personal iDevice. You simply grade random college kids' papers to pay off your debt. Your goal is to give them a terrible score and find all the mistakes. Sometimes it's easy (the game defines the difficulty as minefield) or hard (there can sometimes be one error in the entire essay). It seems like a simple idea but it can quickly become addictive. I easily recommend the full version as it's a pretty reasonable price for all the content you're getting in the game.

    Overall, The Grading Game is great for anyone who might be struggling in school but it's also incredibly fun for people that aren't struggling.
