Playing Space Race


Space Race

The ultimate video game study simulation. Once you start the game, definitions will scroll across the screen. It's your job to type in the corresponding term to "destroy" the definition before it scrolls out of sight. The longer you play, the faster they scroll.

How it works

Type the correct term as the definition appears on the screen. If you get it wrong at first, keep trying!


If a definition makes it to the end of the screen without a correct answer, Space Race will make you type it in in order to move on.


You can choose to have terms scroll across instead of the definitions, or to have a random mix of terms and definitions - just click the drop-down menu next to "Show...":

Space Race-3

You can change this at any time in the game; the next item to scroll across will reflect your changes. However, it may be helpful to pause the game first so that you don't accidentally miss a term. Just click "Pause" at the top of the screen.

Keep going until you use all your "lives." Then play again to beat the highest score!
