The Grading Game could be a Grammar Nazi’s favorite app


Have a knack for pointing out misspelled words in your friends’ tweets? Feeling a sudden urge to chuck a dictionary at those who can’t tell the difference between ‘its’ and ‘it’s’? Then here’s an app that might be perfect for you. The Grading Game is an iOS app that would be great for passing time if you’re a Grammar Nazi.

In the game, you play the role of a teacher’s assistant to the mad, vindictive Dr. Snerpus. In various levels, you perform a number of corrections—fixing gramatical errors, run-on sentences, improper capitalizations, and misspelled words—on term papers of Dr. Snerpus’ students. You are given a time limit on each paper to find as many corrections as you can. The goal, apparently, is to give the student the worst possible grade—a big fat F. A video preview of the gameplay can be found here.

The Grading Game costs USD $0.99 on iTunes.
