Game Review Makes No Sense!!!
“Squirt’s Adventure is more motivating than are traditional books and worksheets that introduce beginning letters.”
Fun Educational Apps

If the person who wrote that quote speaks English, they deserve to be lined up against a wall and shot. Horrible use of the English language. This regarding the use of 'are'

Calm down, the game teaches words and not grammatics. :-)

So it wants children to speak as much sense as those who don't speak your language, and thus make no sense.
eg. Timmy - "Mother, This onomatopoeia is astonishing"
Timmys' Mother - "That's your ♥♥♥♥♥ Timmy..."
Timmy - "Bother not thy maiden sword"
Timmys' Mother - "wtf Timmy?"

It's "who" not "whom".
Have you picked out a wall for yourself?

It actually is 'who'.
He, who does not see the difference, shall be whom is struck by the wings of irony. Or somethin'.

You do realize there are forms of punishment besides death? It's just a grammar mistake. Something you definitely shouldn't have on your review page - especially not for an educational game - but not severe enough to warrant the hyperbole you're spouting.

He deleted the post a while back so I think he realizes.
My mistake it's still there- it was the top post.

How bout instead of complaining here you comment on their Review, not make a discussion about it. People need too learn how to use steam properly. I left a variety of gramair mistakes in here just for you. :)

From the video of the two that we have in steam two things seem very abrubt about this.
One your useing the mouse which could be taken for anything but a cusor and clicking on objects that match the letter and this other room where you can collect stuff and move about at will ?. What else does this game do besides those two challenges ?.

Looking at this quote for the second time, I see that it actually seems to be implying people with mental disabilities should be killed.

you could take a quote anyway you wish but there are many people out there with those view points so yes it could be that but im just saying it could be. Not nessacerraly so.

HAHA How did you come to that conclusion?
In reality the part about being lined up against a wall and shot was a very british joke for british people, if you are british and do not understand it...watch television.

The 'pun' implication in this post originated from British television, you appear to have missed it completely. I am not that cynical in actuality.
