Description

The purpose of this project is to transform speed-reading into a game. An attempt has been made to create a set of interactions that will allow for a pleasing "flow state" of mind which hopefully will captivate a player's attention longer than might traditional training.

This is the beta version, so many more etexts and, hopefully, even a few more features will be added. All of the gameplay progression elements have been unlocked for the beta. The included fonts, while all great fonts, are not necessarily equal in terms of being appropriate for speed reading training and may be changed in future releases. The lack of sound is intentional.

'WASD' or 'ARROWS' to move
'SPACE' or 'J' to use 'Busters'
'Busters' will destroy bounce words (red words)
Press 'F' at any time to cycle fonts.
Press 'C' at any time to cycle color schemes.


Collecting the gold bonus words will increase text width.
Colliding with red words will decrease text width.

You are commanded to enjoy.

The purpose of this game is to provide an enjoyable activity that can be performed simultaneously with the practice of speed reading. An attempt has been made to create a set of interactions that will allow for a pleasing "flow state" of mind which hopefully will captivate a player's attention longer than might traditional training.

This is the beta version, so many more etexts and, hopefully, even a few more features will be added. All of the gameplay progression elements have been unlocked for the beta. The fonts included, while all great fonts, are not all necessarily equal in terms of being preferred for speed reading training and may be changed in future releases. The lack of sound is intentional but there may be sound effects included in the final version.

If you enjoy this game please don't forget to donate.

 Thanks for playing!
