Japanese learning games

I've been looking for fun ways to learn japanese and so far i've found a few:
Typing Racer:

This is great for practicing your Hiragana/Katakana/Kanji.
The game looks like crap but it works !

I remember a few more games (even an RPG, and Typing Of The Dead), but i've lost the links to them, if somebody knows more, please let me know in this topic.

Found it !
The goal of Project LRNJ is to make LeaRNing Japanese fun and easy with a retro-style RPG: Slime Forest. The game is still under development, but many students already find it useful, and it can currently teach you katakana, hiragana, and over a thousand kanji, essential character recognition for reading Japanese.

lrnj IS Slime Forest.

The cave is as far as you can go, it's a work in progress (unfinished).

Once you save the princess, what little story it has is over. I play it still because of its value as a 'flashcard' program. :) You can keep learning kanji.. well.. till it runs out. Around 1000 or so, I think.

Don't forget to supplement your learning in Slime Forest with actual kanji study, as it's more or less a primer since it doesn't teach readings, and only one basic meaning per kanji

I have not used it, but this website was recommended in some of the Livejournal communities I am part of.


I do want to warn you that despite my popup blocker, I did get some annoying popups when I checked the site for the URL.
