What you should know:
The grammar dragon has locked up some friends in a cage, and it’s up to brave kids to tackle grammar problems to save them. Little learners better hurry though—the clock is ticking!
To begin, players must pick an “apprentice” avatar, which must answer fiery grammar questions to earn money and points to free their friends. The fantasy-inspired premise is cute in theory, but Grammar Dragon falls short on execution. Although the app begins with an elaborate and well-thought out storyline, the questions seem random and disconnected from anything that's going on in the game. For example, questions quiz kids about cities, cars and computers—but not dragons or knights. Every quiz has an aggressive time limit, and the questions don’t automatically advance. The "i" button, which usually means help or information, doesn’t work—a blank screen pops up when the button is pressed.
Finally, scores can’t be saved without submitting them to the game center, which requires information sharing that’s age-inappropriate for the target audience. This adequate app that will do the job in a pinch, but some of the flaws may be hard to overlook.
