Two New Games Added in Our Smash Hit Laboratory!

April 13, 2017



We’ve been blown away by the popularity of our Laboratory games! The first two games have been played more than 90,000 times since their release four months ago. Kids and educators agree they are a hit and are ready for more! On that note, we are incredibly excited to announce that two more brand new games have now been released for your students to enjoy.

Cupcake Bugs


In this game, kids get to throw a cupcake party for some bored ladybugs to cheer them up. Keys are placed into their correct locations on the keyboard to earn a cupcake for the adorable bugs. Short letter sequences help kids memorize key locations as they learn to navigate the keyboard.

Letter Trucks


In this fun game, lettered boxes are dropped from a crane over a line of moving trucks. The boxes are released into the trucks by pressing the correct key on the keyboard but don’t let them fall! This game works with both physical and on-screen keyboards and kids love the action.

Playing now easier with touchpad and mouse

Please note that previously released games have now been updated with new functions and levels so be sure to revisit them. In addition, all of the games are now easier to play with a touchpad or mouse to add more flexibility for players.

Has your class tried out all of the games? If there are some games that your class hasn’t had a chance to try yet, they can be easily accessed in the Laboratory section by logging in to Typing Quest and clicking the “Lab” icon on the left menu. Please note that if you have disabled all the games, Laboratory is hidden as well.
