Meteor Typing Blast

Hello everyone. It is James from the Visual Impairment Team in Devon.

In this video I am going to demonstrate a touch typing game called Meteor Game.

Now this is one of many meteor themed touch typing games and so the best way of finding it is to search on Google for “meteor typing blast” and you will find it at

This video is a rarity for me as I don't speak in it. In the video, you just get to watch the game and listen to its sound effects.

Now by watching the 2 minute video of the game itself, we can create a list of good points and bad points about it

Good Features

The space theme will be motivating for a lot of people- children and adults alike.

The graphics and sound effects are very attractive.

The instructions are clear- just press the letters on the keyboard that are on the rocks racing towards you.

It allows you to select from a range of levels; beginner, intermediate and advanced and

It has 40 lessons that break down touch typing skills into smaller steps.

I like the fact that not all letter groupings will hit you and destroy you.

It shows a score.

You can have the sounds turned on and off.

Bad Features

It is not very visually impaired friendly. 

The design is too cluttered and there is not enough contrast.

You have to watch a 30 second advert before you can play it.

Although the game might appear to be quite large on the screen, I change its size to make a better recording.

On an ordinary website it will only take up about a quarter of your screen.

The Bottom Line

Although this game is at first fun, I think that it’s lack of flexibility would soon make it quite boring to play.

Sorry but there are better meteor games for touch typing out there!

And I will be making video demonstrations of the best ones over the coming days!

If this video has helped you, please share it with your friends, colleagues  and family.

I have created lots of other videos relating to touch typing and there is a link to my playlist below.
