Word Defense

by Wan - Mini LD Entry

Yup, this is a Bootstrap-powered typing game.


* Blue Orange and Red squares are attacking your house! Destroy them by typing words of the matching color.
* Squares must always be destroyed in order, left to right.
* Build up combos by attacking squares with words that follow each other!


* Typing Grey words help increase combos but don't yield points.
* If a word appears several times in the text, the first one will always be used.
* Type the word "reroll" to get new words at the cost of some points.

Awesome, I didn't understand I could reroll until after I played. Had fun playing the game. Neat idea!

Wow, my favorite typing game (and I have played a few of them). Really liked it. Gets really intense. Great idea and smooth execution. I didn't understand what does the black outline around a word mean.

A thing that threw me off once was when I was trying to type "sometimes" to get rid of a red square, and instead triggered a word "some". A solution that could work so this does not happen would be that the words are checked only after pressing spacebar.

Also, what's up with the top scores?

Thanks for your feedback, BoltKey in particular. I took note and made some improvements to the game:

* You must now press either Enter or Space to submit a word
* UI is tweaked to make the combo/reroll mechanics more intuitive
* Leaderboard is fixed

I don't really like typing games, but this one was surprisingly enjoyable.

Fun! Couldn't type in any grey words though.

Cool idea for an educational game. A good way to improve your skills on the keyboard at the same time you get a nice time typing. :D
