[WIP] Word Birds Typing Game, Looking for Feedback!

Recommended Posts

Hi Everyone,

We are making a game to help people learn to type.  We used Phaser 2 and this is our first game so feedback from a group like this would be very helpful.  It is a sidescroller where you type in words as they appear to move your character.  The levels slowly add more keys and longer words to build up your muscle memory.  The demo is now live and is located at:


There is also a short trailer and some other information on the site.  Here is the direct link for the trailer: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=93FlRNyFnF4

There is a feedback button that pops up above the game window, or even better post your thoughts here or email us at wordbirds@switchback.studio.  If nothing comes to mind just tell us the thing you liked the least and thing you liked the most.  If you are up for a little challenge we are giving away free keys for the game if you can beat the demo!

I had fun, playing Falcon up to world 2 level 4ish. I kind of like the level design - the parallel word choices, timing challenges, etc. I honestly didn't pay any attention to all the complex power-up rules and just focused on movement timing, and that was entertaining enough.

I like the measurement part between levels. One problem - there was a bit where I was off by one letter for a couple words. I expected the cursor to jump to the next word whenever I hit space, so that skipped/extra letters don't cause the player to be out of alignment for all future words, until they fix the character count.

It could use more "juice" - particles, sounds, etc. But the core mechanic, and the level design, seem pretty solid.
