No, for several reasons :
- the timer is off-screen, and this has to be fixed
- no title screen
- no explanation that you have to move balloons (in video games, when we see balloons, we want to pop them !)
- bad music
- no idea of how long the game will be
- no incentive to play whatsoever : no score, no greetings, nothing.

Timer's off screen and impossible to see. This could be good with bug fixes. Especially for game devs who don't speak English as their first language.


ahtingir responds:

Timer's not off normally but it is because of new grounds game playing screen sizes. If you play at http://www.englishlearninggames.com/play/mixed-tense-word-order.html
you can see there is no problem.
As you said, this game is especially ESL students.

Thank you very much for your feedback

Looks good, though some sentences could be arranged in more than one way. For example, one of my sentences had the phrase "at the moment" in it. I think it was "At the moment I am arranging English grammar."
Problem is this sentence could be properly arranged:
"At the moment I am arranging English grammar."
"I am arranging English grammar at the moment ."
"I at the moment am arranging English grammar."
"I am at the moment arranging English grammar."

Most of the time, context like capitals and punctuation give enough clues, but strict adherence to one form when several could be used could lead to confused users.

A simple fix would be to stick with less complex sentences with no unnecessary clauses or phrases.

An unrelated complaint: The balloons occasionally were "dropped" for what seemed like no reason.

Neither of these issues keep it from being a useful tool though. Good job.


ahtingir responds:

You are right but we have formed as ''At the moment...'' starts with capital A. This is a mixed tense game. We thought sentences can be any form, sometimes time adverbs can be at the beginning ....

Balloons drop because of 25 seconds passes.

Thank you very much for your feedback

I believe this could be a great tool for children or anyone trying to learn English. It is not much use to the rest of us.
