Cyphernaut - Days of the Week Match Game
The rules for this game are pretty simple. Just drag the English day of the week box on the left hand side to the correct chosen language day of the week box on the right hand side. If the choice is correct, the English word stays put in the chosen word box and the player will be unable to move the day of the week box anymore. If the choice is wrong, the day of the week box will return its starting position on the left hand side. Use the combo box to select another language and the day of the week boxes will reset to the left hand side. The player must then again match the English day of the week box to the correct chosen language word representation on the right hand side. Please note that the order of the day of the week boxes on the right hand side is shuffled with every new language selection. The English days of the week on the left hand side are always in fixed order starting with Sunday and ending with Saturday. Languages covered in this game include English, Spanish, German, French, Italian, Portuguese, Russian, Chinese(Simplified), Japanese and Korean.
Pronunciation guides for each word are also provided for Russian, Chinese, Japanese and Korean. If the language is Russian, the stressed syllable appears in uppercase letters.
Example: cloud -> облако (OB-la-ka). The ob is stressed.
*Important Note : It may be necessary to install support for East Asian languages like Chinese, Japanese and Korean. The following links provide instructions for installing East Asian languages on a computer running Windows so that the games will properly display Chinese, Japanese and Korean.
It's interesting to note that each day of the week has special meaning in Japanese. Starting with Sunday, the days are represented by Chinese Kanji characters for the sun, the moon, fire, water, trees, gold and land.
