The parents' guide to what's in this app.

Ease of Play

There are seven game modes: adventure, memory, local two player memory, a 20 question pop quiz, a gallery of all letters, an alphabetical ordering game, and single player tic-tac-toe. Adventure mode takes players through several rounds of memory games and the alphabetical ordering game, with different sets of letters each time. Progress cannot be saved in any of the game modes. Verbal instructions are provided throughout, but there are no hints.

What parents need to know

Parents need to know that Pamela Possum Goes To Letter Land is primarily memory-style games matching uppercase and lowercase letters with their sounds. Changing the difficulty level of the games changes the sizes of the memory puzzles. A gallery of letters is included, and some puzzles require putting letters in alphabetical order. An adventure mode takes kids through several series of games with different combinations of letters, and there are single- and two-player options.

Is it any good?

EnsenaSoft has found a model that works relatively well; this game is set up the same way as their Art Museum app. Pamela Possum is a cheerful companion to lead you through letter land, but she doesn't provide any hints or instruction, so kids will already need to pretty much know their letters to get the most from these games. They can learn in the alphabet gallery, and it's nice to have the different options for how to play, but the lack of saving progress keeps the app pretty basic.
