Play is a great way to learn. The Typing Pal games provide a different and entertaining way to learn and perfect your typing. Enhance your skills progressively as you play through each of the three games: Cosmik Ball focuses your fingers on single characters; Monkeys in Jeopardy tests your talents for typing sequences of characters up to whole words; and Magical Duel takes your typing even further with words and phrases.
You can access games by clicking on the Games link in the Move on tab.
Scenario: A cosmic ball on the verge of explosion threatens the galaxy. A space octopus is tasked with keeping the ball captive with its pulsing laser tentacles. Typing the right character activates the shield and stops the ball.
Select from five game modes, each targeting one or more rows of keys. Challenge yourself while perfecting your performance on different parts of the keyboard.
Monkeys in Jeopardy
Scenario : A violent storm is raging in the forest. Carried away by the gusts of wind, the monkeys are falling into the river. Only a vine propelled by correctly typed characters can bring them back to safety.
Select from five game modes to practice typing either sequences of characters in your choice of one of four rows on the keyboard or single words using multiple rows of keys. Perfect your finger positioning for each different row, and work your way up to using all rows together to type out whole words.
Scenario: A curse has befallen the realm and enchanted all its subjects. The only way to free them is by taking them on in a magical duel and casting spells by correctly typing phrases.
Practice by using the entire keyboard to type and cast eight different kinds of spells. You can choose one spell type to level up at the end of each round, after you’ve defeated your opponent. You'll have to be strategic in your spellcasting, though. As spells increase in power, they also become longer to type!
Cosmik Ball and Monkeys in Jeopardy allow you to choose between three difficulty levels, each presenting a different challenge:
- Beginner — The speed increases slowly, but the points come slowly too.
- Intermediate — The speed increases gradually, and points accumulate normally.
- Expert — The speed increases quickly, but the points pile up fast!
Magical Duel’s difficulty level is determined by the age group selected in the Environment section under My Settings.
Each game mode has its own high score list that displays your ranking compared with other members of the family (if applicable).
