                                                                                                                                                                                                          Learning a new skill doesn’t have to be boring and never had to be.

By the end of the day, time is being wasted, and the work pile is stacked high over your head.

                                                                                                                                                                                                          Why not alleviate some of those frustrations through practice and dedicating your spare time to build muscle memory?

                                                                                                                                                                                                          Learning a simple skillset like speed typing can drastically improve other essential areas in life including time-management and prioritization.

This level prevents you from seeing the entire word, sentences, or even correct any spelling or grammatical mistakes until the timer is complete.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                  If you’re wondering, copying and pasting is not an option until each the end of each session.

According Psychology Today,[1] only a handful of people actually learn how to type by looking at an actual keyboard, while a majority of the population locate specific keys intuitively through muscle memory.

It’s hard to believe that Space Invaders just turned 40 , but you can still get the same adrenaline rush with ZType, a typing game with the same shooting concept.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                      Ztype works in waves – stages that must be cleared but instead of aliens, you must type out the words before the missiles destroy your ship at the bottom of the screen. Every so often, longer and mor complex words would appear and if the words are not typed in the allotted time, a series of letters will disperse like missles.

                                                                                                                                                                                                                      The game is quick on the fingers and will still have your heart pumping until the very end.
