“If you ever wanted to learn Japanese, or you’re a fan of puzzle games, Kana Quest is the game for you.”
4.5/5 – MKAU Gaming

“Kana Quest set out to do two things: (1) be a helpful tool for beginners to learn/test their Kana memorization and (2) have Kana Quest be fun and worthwhile no matter what level someone may be at. I can safely say that Kana Quest succeeded at both.”

About This Game

A Kawaii Kana Match-Em Up.

Are you sick of educational games that are glorified pop-quizzes? Do you just want to play an awesome game and have a new real world skill at the end of it? Do you want to learn how to read Hiragana and Katakana?

Well then, Kana Quest is for you!

"But how does it work" I hear you think. Excellent question! In Japanese, each phonetic letter is called a Kana. Kana that have a shared sound will match. When all Kana in a level are connected by matches, it will be complete.

Key Features:
  • Beautiful pixel art
  • Over 300 challenging puzzle levels
  • Hiragana and Katakana included
  • Great way to learn for beginners of Japanese
  • Still a great puzzle game for people who know Japanese
  • No pop quizzes
