Used 1024x128. Hope it works in IE. it's the only browser I don't test anymore.

That doesn't even seem possible >_> I am hitting the keys at a pretty ridiculous pace with 8 fingers!

i nearly got to the half :)
i like that it's possible to use every key.

Thanks for the feedback.
So I've lowered the difficulty just a bit. I wonder if the type of keyboard has anything to do with it. Mine is relatively new.

need my keyboard too much to give this another go, but entertaining concept :p

Inputhandling seems a bit messy. I was just able to hold one key down and win the game.

One of the more stressful games I have played lately ;)
Great idea, tho. Lots of fun with the princess text :)

(function cheat() { setTimeout(function(){ keyIsPressed(); cheat(); }, 10); })();

Yes, I feel guilty...

@steamx yea it was my first time making a game in javascript, though I haven't been able to replicate holding down one key to win.
@netmute Thanks, and nice work thinking outside the box there haha. Was wondering if someone might do something like that.

Quite stressing, but also a lot of fun. =)

I like the spirit of it, and the artwork is catchy. However, I must admit that I REALLY don't like mashing-style games. However, as a small banner, and the healthbar-death idea, it's pretty funny, and I can't help but like it.

god thats hard.. the holding down seems to work for awhile but doesnt last that long for me.. i wonder if key repeat speed in windows has any effect.. good job anyhoot :)

Got about 70% of the way, then hit a key that made firefox bring up some popup! Couldn't make it pause when it loses input somehow could you? :( I then tried again and did the same with the search key, ahhh

Cool idea though :D

Thanks everyone.
@Darkfrost that happened to me as well. I might just look into adding some sort or pause mechanism.

Hehehe I cheated. I used a macro key on my new mechanical keyboard and set it to press space lots of times per press. Without that, I deem this game literally impossible but at least it made me use my brain.

That was a whole new level of intense. I broke off my "k" key. It took me 5 minutes to get it back in. :P

Fun concept, I don't like buttonmashing though.
