Word Fireworks: learn to read and write a new language...with fireworks! When it comes to Chinese, Japanese, Korean, or Hebrew, learning a new alphabet can be quite a challenge. Word Fireworks makes it fun and easy by initiating you into these languages with quick, insightful lessons and gorgeous fireworks. Speed through sprint levels, survive listening stages, and conquer confusion-clearing challenges to launch your very own fireworks show! Unlock more than a hundred different kinds of fireworks, from the chrysanthemum to the donut-kebab. Or use your creative flair to make your very own custom firework design!


In 2014, the concept of Word Fireworks was born from a passion for particle systems and a new-found interest in learning Korean. The scope of the game quickly grew from a mini-game restricted to the Korean alphabet to a full-blown language learning experience across four different languages. Word Fireworks was finally released on Android and iOS in Chinese, Japanese, Korean, and Hebrew in Q4 2015.
