Skyfish Phonics app review

Sky Fish Phonics by Knowbility is an app that some would consider more of a fun review game than a teaching educational app.  It’s the closest app to a game that I have on the iPad. The goal of the game is to achieve different costumes for your fish. You get a new costume when you finish a level. You finish a level by shooting your fish through different obstacles.  Some of the obstacles require you to choose the right sound or match words with sounds.  The prize for finishing the level is a new costume for your fish.

There are several settings you can change.20131224-201912.jpg

Overall my boys had fun playing this game however it seemed like there was more entertainment than learning.  I feel that the Phonics elements  to the game were better then some games that claim to be based on phonics.  Still I would recommend this game for reinforcing phonics but I would not use the app for a new learner.
