Best Typing Games to Improve your Speed and Earn you Keys
I don't have much time for games these days, so when I need my quick fix, I actually do so with my passion for typing and jump on some well known, and some not so well known, typing games.

These are great for improving your intellect, as well as improving your typing speed and of course the amount of keys you have on WhatPulse. Some games are out there for Clicking too. Lots of games are becoming more social too allowing you to compete with friends, have a profile and so on to show off your skills and improvement over time, and of course unlock achievements which every gamer loves.

Some of these games are not ideal for lots of keys or clicks, but are fun none-the-less.

If you would like to add any, please do contribute to the discussion.

10Fast Fingers
This site has the feel of a typing test, but brings in achievements and competitions to add a great gaming feel to things. You can earn achievements for the amount of tests taken, for hitting a certain WPM speed, or for winning a certain amount of tournaments.

TypeRacer

I was actually pretty well known on this when it was popular on Bebo (A social networking site that used to be very popular in the UK and other Euro countries). I was faster than 99% of the site according to their stats and was always being challenged by random people from all around the world, which made the game very fun. Sadly I did not know of WhatPulse's existence until late 2008, some 3 years after leaving behind Bebo for Facebook, so I never really got to get those awesome keystrokes. The game was around as an App on facebook for some time, but seems to no longer be accessible, and now the classic looking site still functions exactly the same. The design could be improved, but more functionality with friends has been added. You of course race against other players to complete paragraphs (usually quotes from books) and the first person to finish it wins. You get a WPM score and a profile to make things interesting. Premium costs $12 a year and you get access to custom avatars and other little perks if you are someone who uses this on a regular basis. That's only $1 a month, so quite a bargain if you enjoy this type of site.

FlashFlashRevolution

This site is not as popular as it used to be, but the great typing alternative to DanceDanceRevolution is still popular with thousands of users every day. You must hit arrows in time to the music on many famous songs, and things get very hard as you go up in the difficulties. If you get good at this game, you can pick off a lot of keystrokes and get your name on the daily stats pages too.

Typing Karaoke

This game is very basic and there is not much choice of song, but if you are a pretty fast typist this can be quite a fun game to play. Instead of singing karaoke, you need to type the lyrics of the song as it is played in realtime. As you can imagine, for some songs this is quite easy, but for a song with a lot of lyrics you may begin to struggle a little bit. The graphics are beautiful retro which always gets us gamers a little happy.

TypeDown

TypeDown is a great quick fix game where you must not let the tiles of words reach the top of the screen. You do this by typing the words as quickly as possible. At the start of the game it is very easy, but as the game get's faster and the words become more complex, you may begin to struggle. Each level gets harder. How far can you go?

Balloon Game

This game is not for speed or lots of keys, but is designed to massively improve your touch typing. If you are new to touch typing then this is a great game for you to try. You must type the letters in each balloon as they appear on the screen, popping them when you press the correct key. Of course things get faster as the game goes on, and the on screen keyboard will alert you when you press the wrong key, allowing you to stay focused on the screen and not look at the keyboard at all, keeping up with that touch typing.

Miniclip Pool

This one is for clicks rather than keys. You won't get much, but this game is great fun and the social features make it the perfect quick fix. You use the mouse to aim, take shots etc so you can get a reasonable amount of clicks per game, but this one is definitely more for fun rather than stats.

ClickClickClick

This well known game is played by countries all over the world. You simply have to click a button and earn clicks for your nation. Each week the teams (Countries) with the most clicks will win medals and trophies, and these are added onto the season total. At the end of each season a victor is found by calculating who has the most trophies and medals overall. You can either click endlessly for 1000, or you can click to 50 and use a turbo clicker which does it automatically for you. This gets the stats up for the ClickClickClick website, but of course does not count for your WhatPulse clicks.

What is your favourite quick fix game on the web (or to download) that gets your keystrokes/mouseclicks up?
