Fun Online Typing Game / Keyboard Skills Activity
Type For Gold is a funny and innovative typing game for kids, teens, adults & senior citizens where you get to practice or use your super-fast typing skills to make a quirky onscreen character run as fast as he can. The faster you type – the faster your character runs! This fun-filled learning to type game provides hours of enjoyment and will put a smile on your face. Type your way to first place through Round 1, Round 2, the Semi Finals and Finals in the 100m, 200m, 400m, 800m and 1500m race and you will have proven your typing skills beyond a shadow of a doubt!
Be warned; when you get to the 1500m race, lightening-quick typing skills are required to keep up with the onslaught of awkward words. First place is your goal! Typing the correct words will make your character run faster but if you type the wrong letter, you will lose the word and slow down! OK, are you ready? Are you steady? On your marks. Get set. Go! Get turbo-typing!
How To Play: Use the letter keys on your computer keyboard to type the letters into the white empty blocks at the bottom of the game screen so that they match the letters (in the blue box) at the top of the game screen. You can see your remaining race distance, in the top right corner of the game screen and your score and your ranking at the bottom of the game screen. Have fun!
