Features of GuruCool PlaySchool for Windows 8…

When you install and launch GuruCool PlaySchool on your Windows 8 or Windows 8.1 device, you will be presented with an interface which looks like the below screenshot.

GuruCool PlaySchool Main Screen

As you can see above, you are presented with a screen where different items are displayed. The first object is the shape puzzle, the second is the letter puzzle, the third is the number game, the fourth is the color game and the last one is the underwater game. Below I have explained all of these in a little more detail.

Shape Game: If you click on the shape puzzle icon in the main screen of the game, you will be presented with a screen where you will be first given a shape and then you will be asked to fit the shape into various spaces where the shape can fit. Then you will be told the name of the object in which you just fit the shape!

In the above screen, the black shape (circle in this case) has to be dragged into the gap at the center of the sun, and then you will be told (in a soothing female voice) that the object is a sun. This will continue for a long time for various objects, and then you will be given a new shape which you can fit into even more objects. This way you can learn the names of the shapes and also the objects you fit them into.

Letter Puzzle: When you select the second icon in the main screen of the app, you will be presented with a letter puzzle in which you have to fit the outline of the letter parts into the gaps provided into the shape of the letter. This is a really fun way to learn the alphabet.
