To help my son’s pronunciation, reading and spelling I have reproduced the CBeebies Alphablocks introductions into a simple NDS game.
In making this I had to write a simple media player for the DS, which I call viDSnips. Latest version now uses viDSnips 2 which gives vastly improved sound, more robust video playback and much smaller media files.
A couple of things to note:
- If you run this game in an emulator it may run slow (and therefore a bit crap) depending upon your computers performance as the video is fairly processor intensive.
- The game is rather large so I’ve RARed it up. Just download the .rar and unpack the alphablocks.nds file.
Have fun and get learning those letter sounds.
