Game for practicing typing skills.

Overview

TickerType is a game that helps you practice your typing skills. Each game has five turns and each turn is 30, 60 or 90 seconds long, selectable by the user. Words are chosen at random from a built-in dictionary; the player can choose short (2 - 4 letters), medium (4 - 6 letters) or long (6 - 8 letters). With the start of each game or turn, the words start marching across the window in tickertape fashion; the player can choose slow, medium or fast speeds. The goal is to type as many of the words as possible before the time runs out; a countdown is provided. If you type a word correctly before it starts to run off the window, the word disappears and you get ten points plus one point for each letter. The top ten scores are saved. Sound is supported; the player can turn sound on/off. Settings for sound, word length, speed and turn length are saved between sessions.

This game is suitable for both adults and kids from age six. This game is freeware.

Great in conjunction with a learning typing app to exercise and have fun. Would be really nice if the user was able to customize the words feed and so play with non English words.

quite addictive and great for speed typing improvements. It didn't seem to save my score when I played it, though maybe I just missed the option for where to enable that.
