你说中文吗? If you can't read that, after mastering this game you'll be able to READ and WRITE it and 200+ other Chinese words!

Hanzi Invaders is a simple arcade learning game that teaches you to read and write Chinese characters using your iOS keyboard.


Chinese characters fall from the top of the screen. Type them (Easy mode) or draw them (Hard mode) before they reach the bottom. Miss 3 and it's game over!


- Innovative use of the iOS Chinese handwriting tool
- Gameplay modes: EASY (typing pinyin), HARD (handwriting characters), ARCADE (endless mode for points)
- 100 levels to unlock
- 200+ Chinese characters to learn

If you play enough to get a high score in Arcade Mode, you will know enough Chinese characters to do things like: read items on restaurant menus, read signs, write Chinese words, and impress your friends!
