The game is quite easy, the player has to enter the word which is showing up. During the countdown the error rate is calculated.
I have put the source code online (comments are in German), please see: Speed Typing Game C++ Prototype - All the source code (PDF) or download from here.
Below is a short clip showing you how the little typing game looks like. You see graphical elements like particles, the rotating cube, reflection, as well as the letters bottom right that are typed in by the player.
End screen: Punkte = points | Sekunden pro Wort = seconds per word | 24 von 25 Woertern richtig = 24 of 25 words correct | Fehlerquote = error rate | 252 Anschlaege pro Minute = 252 strokes per minute
