Pinzi is a puzzle game with Chinese characters. Find pairs of components for as many characters as you can and discover new ones along the way.
Whether you just started out learning Chinese or are already fluent, the more you immerse yourself in Chinese the better. With Pinzi you can actively engage with Chinese characters, even if you have just a few minutes to spare. It enables you to combine Chinese characters in different ways and serves as a great addition to your existing learning materials like textbooks and flashcards. Pinzi encourages you to think of Chinese characters as the sum of their components, a key aspect of successfully remembering and distinguishing complex characters. It chooses the right level of difficulty for you, challenging but not frustrating. So don't be surprised when you end up playing a little longer than expected!
