Ganbatte WordPress plugin

Ganbatte is a collection of simple games to practice or learn Japanese basic characters (Hiragana and Katakana) and basic vocabulary.

The installation follows the same principle as any other WordPress plugin, upload to the wp-content/plugins directory and activate it from the Plugins admin section.
Adding the tag [ganbatte-kana] into a post or page content will insert the game in the respective post or page.

Note that the game will not show/work properly if your computer does not have support for Japanese characters.
Try the game here and download here, all feedback welcome, and がんばって!
