Language learning game Lingo Legend launches on Android
Set out on an epic language learning adventure. Defeat your enemies and crush your learning goals.
November 29th – Today, Hyperthought Games Inc. is excited to launch Lingo Legend on the Google Play Store. As a mobile game that embeds language learning within a fantasy RPG, Lingo Legend solves the biggest challenge facing language learners – staying motivated to practice. Its successful launch on iOS earlier this year showcases strong consumer demand for educational entertainment.
Lingo Legend is a card-battling RPG in which players must build a deck to battle monsters as they explore a vibrant world. In combat, players draw ability cards and must answer language challenges to play them. Completing the challenges isn't enough though, players will need to strategize to defeat a host of enemies with strengths, weaknesses, and tactics of their own.
The cleverly designed gameplay is guaranteed to keep learners excited for their next session. Outside of combat, players can take part in additional activities to aid in their quest, like collecting gear, gathering resources, and customizing their camp. As players learn, they will experience an expansive storyline told through quirky characters and quests. Players will embark on a perilous journey through a fantastical world as they become fluent in a new language! [Continues below]
The brand new Android version comes alongside a significant update to the iOS version with an all-new training mode, onboarding experience, and the ability to play as a customizable avatar. Lingo Legend’s ever-growing game experience will continue to provide unique and fresh adventures for players.
Darien Morris, Co-Founder and CEO of Hyperthought Games said: “Now that the game is available for all mobile devices we are really looking forward to building on the world of Lingo Legend. We have a lot in store to elevate the game experience by bringing in more opportunities to interact with other players, opening up more of the world to explore, and incorporating new ways to apply learning beyond the types of questions available now.”
Lingo Legend is available now for free on Android via the Google Play Store and iOS on the App Store, and is made possible with the support of Ontario Creates.
