For those of you who have been using I am Learning for more than a year, you might remember the IAL Summer Games of 2012 and 2013. Well, this year we're doing something slightly different.
Footy Fiesta '14.
Do you like Goals of Glory? Good! We're releasing a new version, with all 32 World Cup teams. Who will you be?
Do you like Penalty Shootout? Good! We're releasing a new version of that too!
Best of all, every goal you score in each game is added up, and you could win a prize! Fancy a VIP tour of Wembley Stadium? Then get playing (not yet, it's not out yet).
HOLD IT! That's not all! We want to see just how much you guys are using I am Learning. So we've got a plan. We want to get all 23 England squad members to Brazil. For that, we need your help. For every hour spent in I am Learning, our IAL plane moves one mile closer to Brazil. To carry all players, it's going to take 128,064 hours of revision. That's a lot, but we can do it!
There'll also going to be Iamable outfits, changes to the IAL Room and loads more. So get ready. It's going to be a great summer in I am Learning!
Have you seen our latest game yet? Kawanimal Crèche is a fast paced game where you have to look after a collection of cute critters until their owners get back. Make sure they're fully fed, competently combed, brilliantly brushed and perfectly and pleasantly played with!
The guy on the right is a Tanuki, a Japanese raccoon dog!
Keep an eye out for the Kawanimals making appearances in other games too. How about a Kawanimal platformer? Or a Kawanimal puzzle game? Who knows what might happen?!
The wolf is fine but that penguin? He's plotting something...
For now, here are a few tips on how to get great scores!
Keep your items tidy! It makes it easier to pick them up later!
Concentrate on making two pets REALLY happy. It will boost your scores!
Keep your movements controlled. Throwing water all over the place certainly won't cheer any pets up!
Keep your eye out for the super rare 'shiny' pets! They'll pop and sparkle, and you'll get one of the rarest achievements ever made!
There are more achievements for this game than any other. Can you get them all?
There are 9 Kawanimals to care for. Which one is your favourite?
That's all for now! The game is on sale for only 100 credits for a limited time, so what are you waiting for; Hajimeyo!
Some of you may have noticed that I am Learning has changed. Only slightly, but hopefully these small changes will make the system even better.
All games now have 20 questions. This means that everyone doing a homework gets the same amount of work. It also means some changes to the games, such as Whack-a-Monkey now having two questions between each game.
Teachers can now leave you feedback if you get questions wrong in a homework. So now it's easier for teachers to help with any problems you have.
You can now ask for help with one click.
Expired homeworks now show up in your homework section, so you can see how you've progressed.
These are only tiny changes, but we just wanted to give you all a heads-up. IMPORTANT: If these features aren't working, or if you are getting errors, you may need to clear your cache to make it all work.A link on how to do this can be found here. If you need any more help, just ask a teacher!
We're changing the way our games are made. Right now, all our games are built using Flash. As you may know, this means that they won't work on an iPad or your mobile phone. We want to change this, so going forward, we want to make games that will work perfectly, everywhere.
Our first game built with this new technology is a rebuild of 'Air Hockey'. With improved controls on desktop machines, it's also super smooth on iPads. So, we need YOU! You can now play this game, with no cost and no questions, just the game! We'd like you to play the game and tell us what you think.
Did it work OK?
Does it control well?
Did it work on your tablet/mobile?
What improvements would you make?
Click here to play it. Bear in mind, it carries on forever! So just have fun, and let us know what you think in the comments section below!
(The game won't be up there long, maybe just this weekend. It's just to test it out, so be quick!)
There isn't a lot to link I am Loaded, Chain of Fools, Zookeeper and Firework Frenzy. Yes they're all games. They're all... Different really. However, one thing they have got in common; They're all coming to our iPad version of i am learning! Now you'l be able to burst rockets, design zoos and win thousands of (virtual) pounds - all on the move!
We really want to make the iPad and tablet version of i am learning great, and getting a bunch of games out is a high priority! Which games would you like to see go mobile? Let us know in the comments below!
