In certain parts English text and questions are inserted which require the player to answer the question in order to continue the game. This study adopted a pre-experimental design. The significance of the difference in mean change is determined by precise statistics such as the dependent T-test. From the results of calculations using the t-test found that the t-value obtained was 7,028, while the required critical t-value at p> .05, the level of significance of the two tailed test is 2.069 (df = 23), p> .01 significant level of two The tailed test was 2.807 (df = 23), p> .001, the significant level of the two tailed test was 3,768 (df = 23). The results of the data in this study indicate that there is a difference in results between the scores on the pre test and post test.
