To clarify, this is for learning entry level Japanese writing. If you have no knowledge you can play the hiragana and katakana versions of this game (I don't know if it's good or not). Don't bother with the kanji version if you have no knowledge.

While starting with the writing system can be useful (there are some textbooks our there such as Minna No Nihongo that are entry level texts but have 2 separate versions written in roman characters or Japanese characters, so knowing hiragana and katakana in advance will let you go straight to the Japanese character version) it's usual and natural to start learning languages with the spoken language. I'd start with the Instant Immersion series of software. Basically it's divided into several different topics (colors, numbers, food, time, travel phrases, etc), you click whichever topic you'd like to start with. There are pictures of the items and you click them to hear the pronunciation. Then there are 2 very effective games to test your knowledge (which basically amount to listening to the speaker and clicking the correct picture). Their software includes 3 levels though I'd say only level 1 is good for beginners (2 and 3 IMO are for reviewing stuff you've learned elsewhere). It's very good, engaging, and efficient - if you can't be bothered to finish level 1 I'd say don't even bother trying anything else. This seller (multiple copies available) is selling the boxed version for $10 shipped though I don't know if it is the latest version or not and if supports Windows 10:
https://www.ebay.com/itm/Learn-Ho...5756!US!-1
If you want the download version and/or want to verify OS compatibility, you can buy direct from the manufacturer but for $30:
http://store.instantimmersion.com...se#d1-info

After going through Level 1 you can consider learning the writing from the games in the OP (you can just buy it now if you want, $5.99 won't exactly set you back. Or as a next step completing the Pimsleur series of courses which are expensive to buy but fairly inexpensive if you use their $15/month subscription service: https://offers.pimsleur.com/free-trial-1404
There are 5 levels according to the description and would take you 5-6 months if you do it without skipping a day (and you shouldn't skip):
https://www.pimsleur.com/learn-japanese

The above will give you a pretty decent foundation for a pretty reasonable price (note that both Instant Immersion and Pimsleur are for the spoken language, if the OP's games are any good they'd make for useful complimentary material)

For what it's worth, 2 of these 3 are available on g2a for cheaper. I know lots of people online dislike the company, but I've bought a handful of games there and never had an issue.
