I've always wanted to brush up on my Chinese. How many words are there? Or how advanced do the characters get?

It basically has most all of the words from all six levels of the HSK exam (Hanyu Shuiping Kaoshi) which is the basic mainland proficiency test (~5000 words), and all three levels of the TOCFL (Test of Chinese as a Foreign Language) exam (~8500 words) which is the Taiwan proficiency exam.

These range from basic words to proficient, and you can create your own sets. You can also break the words down into the characters and play the game with those (Select from the 'chars' modes in Settings). With all sets you can play with either traditional or simplified characters as well as get basic English meanings. There is even a Bopomofo gameplay mode.

Ah great explanation. Just asking since the file size was on the small side.

Edit: would you consider universal support for the future? I think with the extra screen estate you can do some crazy modes with a ton of characters in the screen.

I think you are right a Universal or HD version could really take it to the next level. I can already start to imagine some other interesting ideas for the larger screen. Definitely an interesting concept I will have to add it to the list of ideas for the next version. There's also been some interest to bring on more beta testers as well so that's also something we are looking at for trying out some new features/interfaces.
