App Description

HEY YOU GUYYYYYS! Let’s see your mad, mad word skills! Look out for wordballs and catch them if you can… as you groove to 9 game-enhanced music videos starring Ne-Yo, Jimmy Fallon, Lin-Manuel Miranda, and your favorite characters from The Electric Company.

* Play through 9 arcade-style game levels, each with two modes of play: Video Mode and Arcade Mode.
* Rack up points for every word and challenge friends to match your high score.
* Includes 10 different types of wordballs, such as Silent E, Transformer H, and Hard and Soft C. Make over 300 different words!
* Features characters and guest celebrities from the popular TV series on PBS KIDS GO!

“Wordball” aims to help players 5 & up increase their ability to manipulate sounds in spoken words and then map those words to print. Discover the wonders of the silent E, the hard and soft sounds of C (as in “cat” and “ace”), the transforming powers of the letter H (the sounds ch, sh, th), and much more!

This app requires iOS 4 or above and runs on iPhone and iPod touch.

The Electric Company is a group of friends from a New York neighborhood bound by a love for language and sworn to do the right thing. Each member of The Electric Company has a special ability to produce, control, manipulate, and play with words and letters. The TV series airs on PBS KIDS GO! and is produced by Sesame Workshop.
