Crazy Typer — a game inspired by typing tests

Hello everybody,

Recently I decided to learn a bit of html/css/javascript and by googling every single step, I managed to create some game which is based on typing tests. Since typing speed is often a concerning topic among coders, I thought that maybe some of you could find it entertaining. So I invite you to try it at

The home page describes what it's all about and I think it's pretty self-explanatory:

You will see ten words moving on the screen, each following its own linear trajectory. Your goal is to type words that are currently on the screen, hitting space or enter between different words. As soon as a word hits the border of the screen or you type a word correctly, it disappears from the screen and is replaced by another word at a randomly chosen position. Once you type a word correctly, the number of letters in that word is added to your score. The moment you hit a keyboard key, a 60-second timer will start counting down.

In case somebody is interested, I uploaded it to GitHub — As I mentioned, I am an absolute novice when it comes to programming not related to competitions so I would appreciate your feedback and suggestions.
