[prMac.com] Chicago, Illinois - EdgeMates, the fun, new way to help you learn vocabulary on your iPad is now only $2.99. The object of the game is simple. A series of tiles are created that have vocabulary words on each side. Your goal is to place the tiles on the game board so that each word matches up with its translation on the connecting edge-its "edgemate".
Three different levels of difficulty are available - 4, 9, or 16 tiles. The easy level is perfect for learning the words. Then move on to the more difficult levels. Even once you know your vocabulary, the game is still fun and challenging. EdgeMates is based on an exercise used by many foreign language teachers. Instead of the traditional method of creating paper cards with the words on each side, everything is ready to play immediately.
Currently, versions for Spanish, Italian and Polish are available, with more languages to come.
