Children collaborate in order to save animals that fled the zoo and are now in the dangerous city. Therefore they must combine animal names from individual letters. Hereby the children are familiarized with the alphabet and can gain social competencies because no child can win without its teammates.
To help each other you can send letters to your team mates. A good communication is required so that the teammate can use the letter. Children can ask their teammates for help if they have difficulties. This reduces frustration and encourages the helpfulness.
In addition to that weMakeWords automatically adapts to the playing child. An adaptive watermark is displayed when making a lot of mistakes. After a big amount of mistakes more correct letters are flying in to prevent demotivation. On the other side the difficulty level of the game increases after many correct action so that the game doesn't get boring.
Even young children age four and up can play the game and playfully learn. Of course older children and adults can learn with the game and have a lot of fun!
