How to play

When you open the game, you will see a big red "START RACE" button.

After you click on the red button, you will see READY --> SET --> TYPE!

You need to wait until you see the green "TYPE!" indicator with a forward arrow.

As soon as you see the "TYPE!" indicator, your writing speed test starts and you should start typing.

You will see other 4 (four) boats and these boats are run by AI bots.

Your beautiful boat is run based on your typing speed and accuracy.

When you finish typing, the words per minute test game ends.

The game will automatically and immediately show your typing speed.

Review Details

Price: Free Typing Game

Story: There are 5 (five) boats in this game. A beautiful boat is assigned to you. Your boat goes ahead when you type accurately. When you make any mistakes, your boat slows down and your chance to win goes down. When you finish typing the given paragraph, the game ends. The game will show your average typing words per minute and other statistics. Then you will get a chance to type another random paragraph again.

Graphics: This game has colorful and beautiful graphics. The river bank is cool.

Environmental view: I think the environmental view is good enough for such a small game. The designers have done whatever they can do to improve it.

Design: The game design is done with professional skills. Every item works properly and smoothly.

Animations: The animations are very lively and cool. It is hard not to like the animations of this tiny game.

Sound effects: We must say the sound effects they used for this game is good enough and pleasing to hear.

Music: The music is good but I do not like it. Why? I think it is hard to listen to this music over and over again for a long time. After a few plays, this music became irritating for me.

Load time: Although this game has great graphics, it loaded within 10 (ten) seconds.

Character details: Every item in this game has enough details. Nothing in this game seems incomplete. This much detail is enough for this small game.

Menu: This game has 5 (five) options:

  1. Tricky Keys: I am not sure how this key helps the typing learners.
  2. Paint My Boat: You can change the color of your boat. I think it is a great option for color blinds. Even if you are not color blind, you can also change the color if you want.
  3. Start Race: To start playing, click on this big red button.
  4. Store: You can use your game cash to buy different boats to use in this game.
  5. Friends: You can play with your friends and check your typing test WPM.

Challenges: This type of free online typing test games usually have two challenges - (a) type fast and (b) type without making a mistake but to my opinion, it has another challenge. The water has different colors. When the boats with different colors keep racing, it is challenging to digest the whole dynamic situation.

Progression (slow/fast): The given typing test paragraph is short. So, you do not need more than a minute to finish it. Then you can start practicing another random paragraph.

Limitations: You can only type typing practice paragraphs. There is no way for you to type single letters and single random words.

Faults (bugs and glitches) / Weaknesses / Disappointments: When I was fast finger typing, I did not face any bugs or glitches. The only weakness is the color combination is not great. Water color is too bright for the colorful boats. I was disappointed to see this. I was disappointed with their music too. The music should be much better so that the user can tolerate it for a longer time.

Was it an enjoyable experience? (Frustrating/interesting) I must say "No!". I was a bit frustrated during this online typing test in English.

Is it addictive and/or satisfying? Not really. I was not satisfied and I did not find this game addictive in any way.

Replay value: I recommend you play other typing games better than this game. Those games have better replay values.

Do we recommend this game? No. I am unable to recommend this game as there are better games.
