Select 214 symbols from 19 categories to create up to 500 actual Japanese Kanji. You can smash one, two, or three symbols together, but not everything will combine. There's also a view mode where you can see what you've collected so far. Keep smashing and try to get them all. Have fun, and maybe even learn a little Japanese while you play. Please Enjoy :)

Note: This is my first flash project. Visit my website to see how I made it. There are screenshots of different stages of development. It was hard work, but I'm happy with the results. Let me know if you like it, too. Thanks for playing!

For me it lacks the way to read those kanji in japanese. That would be even more awesome!

Great Game!

I love this game! Fun, and makes you think. I didn't know at first that you can also smash one Kanji at a time - I would have gotten points more quickly. I'm already learning Japanese characters.

Very nice study tool

Even if you're using the hints, you really have to look hard to find the right radicals. That amount of work is great for Kanji recognition. It's a little surprising how much I remember from my two Kanji classes ;) All in all a useful little project. Biggest annoyance is that the back and forth of the character sets as you click buttons seems kind of neat at first, but it gets a little tiring when searching through the sets. And I like the cheat button too lol

I'm glad you like it. I think the difficulty makes it more meaningful when you actually find one. You might see a Kanji character in real life (maybe on a street sign or a TV commercial) and remember what it means because you created it in this game.

For the groups: You can remove a group by clicking it again once it's selected. Doing that lets you choose which side to place the next group. That way you can keep one group up while you look for another.


Great idea, however I dont much care for the game layout. It dident really speak to me, I found a few combonations then I got bored and moved on. Overall I liked it.


Cool game, i learn japanese so it's kind of helpful, cheat button lol
