Crate Typist (pronounced Great Typist) is a typing game I have made in 72 hours for Ludum Dare 42 (an accelerated game development competition).

How to play

The goal of the game is to keep the crates from going into the red zones.

To accomplish that you have to destroy the crates by typing the word written on them.

Tips for a higher score

The longer the streak of correct key presses, the greater the score bonus.

The closer the crate is to the center, the greater the score multiplier.

The different types of crates suggest the length of their word.

The theme

If you aren't fast enough to destroy the crates, they will get closer and closer to the center, and eventually to the red zones, thus Running out of space - the theme of Ludum Dare 42.

Source code

The game was made using Java and libGDX

It's also open-source, and you can find the source code here
