I have a sticky "e" key but managed level 23 or something like that on my first go.
Strangely addictive !

Terrible. I don't think it's an accurate way to asses typing skills because of the arrangement of the game; once the first letter of one word is pressed, you are confined to completing that word, so if you do that accidentally you have to switch to that word and sometimes it can be obscured by several other words. Still, the game is good fun. Either way I couldn't stop myself from hitting the space bar after typing every word and I found this threw me out for the game.

That is my biggest issue - I always hit the space bar inbetween words  Grin

I kept hitting Enter to confirm each word Cheesy
Didn't do so well overall - will try again later.

My result: Go do something else, you are not a typist.

Kind of reminds me of this. I defy any of you to get through Carly Rae Jepson's track Wink

Re: Test your typing skills

^OMFG. I want my data allowance back! What a time it takes to load up. I'm guessing it downloads all of the songs in the list in readiness.
Didn't have a clue what was going on and didn't even get a chance to see my (must have been bad) score at the end. Maybe I made a mistake in choosing Stray Cats: Rock This Town, but it was the only song I knew.
EDIT: Just a thought; I might try it again when I've bought a stenograph!
