Multi-Level Games Make Learning to Type Fun
New! Typing With Sharks
This action-packed, underwater adventure helps kids learn challenging keys on the keyboard. They type words quickly to zap hungry sharks and piranhas before they attack their submarine. The deeper they dive, the harder it is to escape, especially from the electric eel, giant squid and the boss shark. These sea creatures cast out multiple words all at once, repeatedly! Kids earn points by successfully typing all of the characters and advancing to the next level of play, deeper down into the depths of the sea!

All New! Flotsam Fighter
Kids use their Flotsam Fighter Space Ship to clean-up space debris (flotsam), and save all four planets in the Aeon Galaxy by zapping space debris from around the planets. The more debris they collect, the more intergalactic credits they earn. Eight challenging levels of play help them develop their typing speed, typing accuracy, and save the Galaxy!

All New! Xtreme Typing
This fast moving game teaches kids to keep their fingers on the keyboard to move their motorcycle across the desert and through the heart of the city. When they type accurately and faster than their target words per minute, they see a motorcycle stunt fest! Their bike makes several jumps, flies off ramps, rolls over limousines, and flies over buses. If they type fast and accurately, they will see a grand finale stunt at the end of the course!

All New! Tomb Typer!
This 3D interactive game helps kids to improve their typing skills and use their wits! They search an ancient Egyptian tomb by correctly typing words and characters to navigate their way through two levels of intriguing exploration for treasure. Each level poses a more difficult challenge. It is easy to get lost, so kids can refer to the map to find their way through the maze. There are keys that unlock doors, jewels worth bonus points, and coins to increase their life level. There are also dangers!

New! 30+ Game Challenges!
Typing Instructor for Kids Platinum has over 30+ Game Challenges! Kids can play games in a variety of ways by selecting options from the drop down menu, including words per minute (wpm), level of difficulty, and in some games, select an opponent. Games include multiple levels of play and points scored, so kids are motivated to win the first level, advance to the next level, and achieve a high game score!
