Alphabet Blocks is an educational game for a child to learn the English alphabet sounds and names. Accompanied by a talking coach, Bananas (the monkey) or Jack (the jack-in-the-box), the player enters the playroom with a stack of colorful alphabet blocks, a bright red soldier, a traditional chalkboard, and over 50 animated surprises. Clicking on the coaches to make them talk, the player receives the question and should select the correct answer in one of four mini-games:
Identify letters by name;
Identify letters by sound;
Identify words that begin with a letter sound.
There is no negative reinforcement for incorrect responses. Instead, the coach helps the player select the correct answer by reducing the number of available choices. Correct answers are rewarded with smiles and verbal encouragement. Different animated surprises are awaiting if the player makes a correct response on the first attempt. When the player has made eight correct responses, the mini-game is over. Grown-ups can also customize the game's environment to best suit the needs of the player.
