Hiragana Tiles requires you to match 40 characters and symbols by searching the tiles for similarities. The tiles in the game have romaji or the Latin alphabet on them and they are color-coded. Hiragana is a kana system and each kana is either a vowel, a consonant followed by a vowel or a nasal sonorant which can sound like English or resemble the vowels of the French language.
