Games that are challenging and that run the risk of "losing lives" increase the player’s involvement...the player might play for an hour straight; they will at the same time substantially improve their typing skills, without feeling they’re practicing.

Alex Fleming, site director of wordgames.com, presents to the Ultimate Typing™ blog readers fun and learning-oriented games touch typists can play to improve their typing skills. To learn to type, a person doesn’t need to limit themselves to repetitive typing drills and mnemonics that soon get boring. Touch typing is one of those skills that can be easily improved the fun way. In an interview with eReflect's blog editor, Fleming introduces to Ultimate Typing™ readers his top recommendations for touch typing games, confirming how learning and fun can in fact be seamlessly integrated thanks to technology.
Games where the survival factor or the competitiveness level are pronounced are the most popular. Alex Fleming notes in his interview with the Ultimate Typing™ editor how a zombie-themed touch typing game and another ghost-oriented one are popular with typists who wish to improve their typing efficiency and get rid of stress by destroying the creatures. Games that are challenging and that run the risk of "losing lives" increase the player’s involvement. As a result, the player might play for an hour straight; they will at the same time substantially improve their typing skills, without feeling they’re practicing.
While games that are time-based are more adult-oriented, for the most part many of these typing games can be played by both adult and young typists. As Fleming reports, the website is being used in classroom settings and by parents themselves as a touch typing learning tool. Learning to type doesn’t need to be a tiresome task. People are often overwhelmed with the sheer amount of skills and aptitudes they’re expected to master these days, but fortunately typing games help make learning a bit more creative and fun while at the same time ensuring that a person can have fun while still improving their typing efficiency.
Even more importantly, games that integrate a series of skills are even more entertaining and challenging. Wordgames.com features games such as “The Sentence” which target both typing efficiency, spelling, vocabulary and syntax awareness.
The more advanced educational games become, the more likely people are to engage with them. People are becoming more demanding when it comes to how learning takes place. With more sophisticated technology, people seek alternative approaches to learning that allow for the combination of entertainment and learning, and the proliferation of educational games is solid proof of this.
