Hello,

Has anybody played German Premium Word-Master beyond level 6?
http://members.rocketlanguages.com/games/wordmaster/9

I'm finding it too difficult to bother continuing and wondered if anybody has any advice?
I find that the words used in level 7 are just too long to manage to place all the characters before the astronaut arrives.

Here are some of my notes for this game where I would like to see improvements:
Issues to resolve:
1) missing article for each word (at least display it for reference)
2) doesn't pronounce letters as they are placed in the grid - would help with pronunciation at this level
3) no integration with My Vocab - can't add words
4) can't search with phrase finder - words in this game do not show up in the phrase finder
5) capitalization is weakly controlled "You got it right!" sometimes displays the verb with a capital first letter i.e. Schinken and Schwimmen. The verbs should never be capitalized, right?
6) clicking next from level 6 sends me to level 2.

Level4
ärgern = to annoy
Glück = luck
Computer = computer
achtzig = 80
Morgen = tomorrow
Deutsch = German
neunzig = 90
Minuten = minutes
vierzig = 40
Kalender = calendar

Level5
Trocken = dry
dreizehn = 13
sprechen = to speak
fünfzig = 50
Würdig = worthy
vierzehn = 14
Lieblich = sweet
Fertig = done
dreißig = 30
siebzehn = 17

Level6
Schönheit = beauty
Schicken = to send
Tschüß = bye!
Wunderbar = Wonderful
fünfzehn = 15
Bedienung = service
wandern = to hike
Fräulein = Miss
lieben = to love
Schwimmen = to swim
Schicken = to send

Level7
Bestimmt = for sure
einhundert = 100
fünfunddreißig = 35
----at this point I get stuck and run out of time.
siebenunddreißig = 37
Einzelfahrkarten = One way?

Ideas:

Might be nice if we can pick words and phrases from My Vocab to use when playing these games.

Might also be nice if the drag and drop interface can be switched for a touch interface for two reasons:
1) It's faster to click on a letter and automatically place it as the next character than it is to click/drag/drop. A single click works better and saves time.
2) The click/drag/drop mechanism doesn't work on a touch device like the iPad. You can try this by using Puffin on the iPad and turning on the mouse control. It's really cool for most games, but on drag and drop subjects it's just too slow. If the interface was a single click game, it would work for any browser without a mouse control and it would be more fun to play.

I gave up long ago. I don't have the hand coordination even though I know the words. I suck at video games too.
