by U####:

by I####:

Is this the Māori version or dumb ways to die??It is far too hard for my tamariki and the time limit is pretty dum as there aint much time for them to think and also learners of te reo would have trouble understanding what is to be done Nga Mihi

by T####:

Its not too bad but far too hard for any tamariki who actually need to learn the alphabet. If it had an option of doing it without a time limit I think it'd be much better. Suitable for tamariki 8+ with a good level of reo I'd say (which therefore would mean they don't need to learn the alphabet. More a fun game than a teaching tool. Lots of potential tho and great to have more Maori language apps out there).

by L####:

Please tell us the device you're using if you're having problems with this app. Thanks. My device: Samsung S6.....Things to fix: 1. Device sleeps before title song ends. 2. Title songs needs a better animation sequence. 3. Stop music at lose and restart. 4. Level goes up even at lose? ........Good points: 1. Like the 'aaa' sound effect. 2. Game is good.
