REVIEWS FROM TEACHERS AND PARENTS
"This game is the absolute best quality phonics game I have come across for educational and fun value."
Marie Lewis, Rochdale
“My class have reaped loads of benefits from using the programme and the difference in some of their reading skills has been dramatic."
Maria Andrews, Foundation Phase Teacher
"This is a fabulous game. I'm not kidding when I say that my daughter essentially learned all her letter sounds using First steps, with relatively minimal input from me! Great for parents to practise their letter sounds too."

What's New in Version 3.7• As voted by you, a blue tentacled monster has made it's way into the game. You can find these monster body parts when you make a monster or customise your monster during gameplay.
• A thunder of dragons has flown in to our third game. These fire-breathers are spread across many planets, so watch out!
• A beautiful little animation has been added to the start screen, bringing warmth to the welcome.
• The buttons on the title screen are now bigger, making it easier to read them on small devices.
• The way the game exits when the app is closed has been improved. We've increased the time before the game goes back to the main menu, so you can continue where you left off if you've only exited the app for a few moments.
• Small bugs have been blasted away!
We love to read your success stories and we want to know what you’d like added to the game. We are a charity with a mission to improve children's literacy, so we want to make this game as great as it can possibly be. Please leave a review, we read every one!
