The basis of the game would be this...
There would need to be a .ini file where a parent could get into (via password protected editor) and type in spelling words. There could be any number of words in the file - and the computer program should randomly select words from the .ini file.
There needs to be at lease 3 sub games where the kids must correctly spell words to move through levels. These games must be well designed with good graphics - and cute characters. The majority of this project is on graphics.
The 3 sub games must all be different and all require correct spelling to move on. They can point out the correctly spelled word, fill in the missing letters, etc.
I like more creative ideas - such as having to select rocks (with letters on them) to build a bridge across a creek. If the wrong rock is chosen then the character will sink into the water while jumping onto the rock.
There could be a shooting game where ducks (or anything else) have words spelled on them. The game is to shoot the incorrectly spelled words and keep score. They would lose points for shooting a correctly spelled word or for not shooting an incorreclty spelled word.
Creativity is key. Please provide your plan for games as well as character and scenery with your bids.
This will most likely be the first game of a series of games.
