AstroCrow's comments:
Our 10th game, WordFail, was released today onto iOS (it was soft-launched onto Android last month), and it's free! This unique game focuses on teaching how to use the most commonly misused words in English: "affect" vs "effect", "your" vs "you're", etc. We plan on updating it frequently with new level packs. Any feedback or critiques are welcome.

Just from the few screen shots here, it's apparent that the in-game characters don't always use the correct grammar, punctuation, etc. in their responses.
