About Project: Swift Typing is a web-based typing game built with JavaScript and hosted on GitHub. It is my first side project.

I am looking for feedback to help me with the beta version. Enjoy playing the game. Cheers.

Well, after I reached 302 words, I got really bored, mostly because:

  • Words are repeating too often
  • Most of these words are too easy for 5 second time limit
  • I suggest you adding dark mode . My eyes were burning after like 200 words.
Overall, cool game! Enjoyed it.

Fun project! Great job for your first go at a side one.

Since you have most of the work already, you could add some different game modes. Some ideas:

  • An anagram solver! Maybe double the time but jumble up the letters to see if people can answer?
  • Type in a topic and use the Wikipedia API to fill in words so you can learn something as you play
  • Have it type out some short public domain stories

Thanks for the feedback ReinissB. I will fix the words repeating too often and add levels to make it challenging for users.

The dark mode suggestion is a great idea that you have given me. Thanks a lot.

Thanks for your encouragement it means a lot to me. Those are great ideas that you have suggested. Can't wait to add them to the project.
