Pinzi - Chinese Character Puzzle now available as a web app

Recommended Posts

Hi everyone,

 

here is the link: http://pinzi.jiong3.com/

 

The game is very simple, you just combine pairs of components to characters and get points according to the frequency of the characters. The idea is to give Chinese learners of all levels a relaxing way to interact with characters, something in between a normal casual game and flashcards. It starts out with very common characters but will adjust the difficulty to your character knowledge after a few games.

 

Previously it was an iOS app, now I put it on the web so that everyone can play it. It should work pretty much with all modern browsers and platforms, if not please notify me. Private browsing will prevent the app from saving data locally, please use the normal browsing mode.

The game plays itself, it tells you the characters that match and you don't ever have to guess.  As a learning tool it's OK I guess.

It should only do that for the first six characters (妳好拼字得分) as an introduction. If the introduction appears after the first game make sure that you're not in private browsing mode.

Great effort, must have put a lot of work into this. Coming from traditional and playing this was a bit difficult! Also, recognising characters like this is great for anyone who wants a soft intro into 倉頡輸入法 but it doesn't half hurt my brain trying to make 田 and 土 form 里, the result of writing characters thousands of times over the years I suppose, so difficult to break apart these kind of fundamental characters

You can switch to traditional characters if that's what you mean by traditional.

 

The decompositions are based solely on the appearance of the characters in the font, although the one for 里 is actually etymologically correct.
