Clockwords - A Speedy Vocabulary Game

Clockwords is an interesting game that tests your vocabulary and your ability to type quickly. The game is set in the context of an inventors laboratory. To prevent the loss of the laboratory's secrets to secret-stealing spiders, you have to quickly type words into the dialogue box. The longer and more complex the words you type are, the more chances you have to kill the secret-stealing spiders. Once you get past the long introduction to the game it is actually quite fun.

Applications for Education
Clockwords could be a fun way for students to practice their typing skills while also trying to remember some of their more "impressive" vocabulary words.
