Hey, it's all right.
It's a little boring. Maybe next time add power-ups and different challenges/ways to get the words? Also, I'd give the player a little more time to read. Not too much were it's easy, but just a little more. But hey, nice first try. At least it works well and has a good concept.
to start with
make sure you are smarter than the people you try and make this for, because the very firt one is wrong =/ please dont become a teacher
Dis-able the menu functions.
I was able to uncheck play before the words hit the ground and could still move the player giving me time to work out the word.
