I honestly don't know any games that can really help. I know children who have difficulty in reading at this age and my son is the same age. I have helped other kids with reading, so my advise, and I mean this in the most polite and helpful way possible, is to forget the electronics and stick to the books. Video games can be a reward for reading instead. I think it is best if you can give him a gift card to the book store and then help him find a book or two that really interests him. And read that book together, every night. Reading I know, is like a muscle and it has to really be exercised to get better. Also, having the right material that interests your child is half the battle. Another idea is to go to a teacher's store, or go online here http://www.lakeshorelearning.com They have a lot of reading materials to help you in every way, building fluency, vocabulary, comprehension, etc. Try to do a little every day.
