Some Things To Keep In Mind

Parents need to know that Word Joust 6-8 requires an Internet connection to play. Words are compiled from lists of most-used words in sixth- through eighth-grade literature. The hangman game hangs a cartoonish, yet realistic-looking, man rather than a stick figure. Though kids can log in with their Google accounts or submit their email addresses, there’s no reason to do so as their progress is saved in the app. The default setting is to share scores on the global leaderboard, but that option can be turned off.

Word Joust for 6-8 is a Education app that is designed for those 11.  The app has an overall rating of 4 out of 5 and a learning rating of 3 out of 5.
