How to play

There is a dragon in this game. Although it will be moving all the time to show that it is alive, it can never fly without your help.

First, you select a difficulty level and then type a word.

You type the first word and it starts flying. We thought the dragon would fly faster in advanced level compared to the easy level but it was not.

What is the difference among Easy, Medium and Advanced levels?

In Easy level, you type easy words. In Medium level, you type a bit harder and longer words. You type the hardest and longest words in Advanced level.

The speed of the dragon is not influenced by the difficulty level.

You type and explore a beautiful island in this game. The dragon keeps flying and takes you to places as long as you keep typing.

What if you make a mistake in typing a word? Your typing input will be rejected/ignored until you correctly type the whole word.

Does this make sense?

In this English typing speed test game, you will not find typing practice paragraphs as it gives you opportunities to type only words. Speed typing online is not possible too as the game is a bit slow. For fast finger typing, try other suitable games.

Review Details

Price: Free Typing Game

Story: You are given a dragon and some words. If you want to explore the island, you need to type the given words one after another.

Graphics: It looks like they have used mostly free or cheap graphic resources although the game does not look ugly. It could be much better.

Environmental view: It seems like the developer has tried his/her best to make a beautiful environment. Even though the environment has its limitations, we believe it is beautiful.

Design: For the purpose of learning typing, the game design is good enough although there is room for improvement.

Animations: We found the animations looked realistic and natural.

Sound effects: When you make a mistake in typing, you listen to a warning sound effect. We found only this sound effect in this game. Is there any other sound effect? However the warning sound is good to indicate that you have made a mistake.

Music: They have used a soft piece of music and it is easy to listen to this music for a long time.

Load time: Load time is ambiguous. Read the "faults" section. It looks like there is a bug in loading.

Character details: The main character dragon has good details. You will find some other creatures and these have good details.

Menu: It has three options:

  1. Easy: You type easy and small words.
  2. Medium: You type big harder and longer words than the Easy option.
  3. Advanced: You type the hardest and longest words.

Challenges: We did not find any benefit for typing fast. So, the only challenge is to type correctly.

Progression (slow/fast): You type a word, they take a break and then give you the next word. The process goes on.

Limitations: There is no typing test paragraph because it is only an individual word typing game. There is no words per minute typing test either. If you need fast typing assessment, this game is not for you.

Faults (bugs and glitches) / Weaknesses / Disappointments: In the morning, the game loaded within a short period of time. Then we tried to play it again at night but it was not loading. We refreshed our Google Chrome browser multiple times but the game failed to load. Then we tried the game in Firefox browser but the game failed to load completely. Then we opened the Google Chrome browser in Incognito mode and we tried several times to load it. After trying several times in Google Incognito mode, the game finally loaded. It was a disgusting and irritating experience. What is the reason for the problem? Does the game need very high speed internet? Does this game fail to optimize (so it fails to load its heavy image and other resource files?) What's wrong? Did the developer play the game before opening it to the typing learning lesson takers?

Another irritating thing is the mouse input. We did not understand what benefit the mouse movement gives. The developer should have locked and ignored any mouse input so that the scene/view does not move based on mouse inputs.

Was it an enjoyable experience? (Frustrating/interesting) Although the game has a beautiful island, we did not enjoy the game to be honest. Why? There is no challenge that can keep you glued to the game.

Is it addictive and/or satisfying? We did not find any addictive element in this game. Some people may find this game satisfying but we were expecting better performance from this keyboard speed test game. To be honest, this dragon typing game is better than the monkey typing test.

Replay value: You can replay it if you like it but we believe there are better typing test games for the intermediate level learners.

Do we recommend this game? Sorry but no.
