Fun Typing Games For Kids

If you have a kid–or adult–in your life who can’t put the game controller down long enough to learn to touch type, have them try Z-Type. It’s a surprisingly addictive, fun typing game that makes use of the old words-as-space-aliens metaphor, challenging players to touch-type each word falling toward your gun turret before it’s too late. The game plays a whole lot more fun than the way in which I have related it; it is simple and challenging, with an apocalyptic soundtrack that helps keep your head in the game so that you hardly realize you’re learning. Which is always the goal, right?
