Clockwords is a unique interactive typing game for budding wordsmiths, young and old, where you have to type any word you choose (the bigger the better) as fast as you can in order to blast small spy bugs off the screen. This fascinating learn to type game requires nimble fingers, a sense of fun and loads of words! It provides endless hours of fun-filled educational entertainment and mind-boggling mayhem. In this game, speed is the synonym for success. So type like there’s no tomorrow! Good luck!
The game is set in Victorian London. You are the genius inventor with secret plans for a magical machine that runs on the power of language. All is not good however – your laboratory has been invaded by mechanical insects (sent by a rival inventor) that have come to steal your secrets! You need to protect these precious secret papers, and only your expert typing skills can destroy these nasty bugs and stop them getting away with them! To stop the bugs, you need to blast them with your powerful vocabulary – type any word and then press enter – and you shoot the bugs before they can escape with the papers.
Use big words and type super-fast for maximum bug-blasting effect! Keep an eye on the WPM (Words per Minute) multiplier – this shows you how fast you are typing. The faster you type, the higher the multiplier gets, amplifying your score. Try and use the letters that are displayed on the light brown chambers, in your words – this will cause more damage to these crafty little bugs. If you use all the letters, you activate more chambers. Try not to use the same words twice. Remember, the words have to be real words – the kind you find in the dictionary. No nonsense words (gibberish)!
There are 4 stages to get through, and you can choose from three levels of game play (easy, medium or hard). Certain letters will have different destructive effects on the bugs. You can choose which ones you want to delete or purchase before you start the level. The more secrets you have kept, the more letters you can purchase.
