How to play

It is a simple game and it is easy to play.

As the game starts, maize kernels will start falling one by one.

Every piece of kernel has a letter marked on it.

Your job is to type the letter marked in the nearest kernel.

If you have typed correctly, the kernel will be converted into a piece of popcorn and stored in a jar below.

You should keep typing until all kernels are converted into popcorn.

Finally, the fast typing game ends and you will get a chance to play it again.

Review Details

Price: Free Typing Game

Story: This keyboard speed test game is simple and easy. The game designer has marked maize kernels with keyboard letters/keys/buttons. As your typing practice test begins, kernels will start falling one after another and you target the nearest kernel and type the word on it.

Graphics: Graphics are not awesome or amazing but they are not bad either. We can say their graphics are not very good and not very bad.

Environmental view: The game environment is clean and it is okay. There is nothing excessive in this free typing test game.

Design: It is a simple game. However, the game does its job quite perfectly. As this is a game for beginners, even a child can start playing without any instruction. We think the designer is successful in this sense.

Animations: The popcorn animations are realistic and interesting. They keep bouncing so that you do not get bored.

Sound effects: Although sound effects are not very good, we think these are good enough for this small game.

Music: The game developer has not used any music for this game. It does not look odd without any music.

Load time: This game will hopefully load within 10 (ten) seconds in your personal computer.

Character details: Should we say the kernels and popcorn are the characters of this game? If yes, then these characters are easy to recognize and perform as expected.

Menu: Before the game starts, you will see the following options:

  1. How Row
  2. Top Row
  3. Bottom Row
  4. Upper and Lower Case
  5. 3-letter words
  6. 4-letter words
We also see the menu when the game ends.

  1. Redo Level: If you want to play the current level again, use this option.
  2. Top 5: If you want to see the top five scores, use this option.
  3. Start Over: If you want to start playing from the beginning, use this option.

Challenges: Your only challenge is to type a letter marked on the nearest kernel before it falls on the ground. If you fail to do so in this English typing test, the kernel will vanish as soon as it touches the ground.

Progression (slow/fast): As you need to type only some letters, progression is fast. Upon successful completion, you can quickly jump to the next level.

Limitations: It is not an average typing words per minute test. So, there are no typing practice paragraphs. You can practice only some letters and small words from your keyboard.

Faults (bugs and glitches) / Weaknesses / Disappointments: We did not notice any bugs or glitches. We were not disappointed either.

Was it an enjoyable experience? (Frustrating/interesting) The game is somewhat enjoyable as it is a simple but interesting typing speed test online game.

Is it addictive and/or satisfying? We found this game satisfying but not addictive but we believe some people may find this game addictive.

Replay value: If someone finds this game interesting and useful, they can play it over and over again.

Do we recommend this game? No. There are better games than this for beginners.
