How to Play

Align your ship with the asteroid containing the next letter in a word and repeatedly shoot it until you destroy it.

  • Start the Game
    • Tap the screen or any key in the game area to load the welcome screen.
    • Then click on the start button to begin the game.
    • A button in the lower right corner brings up the options menu where you can turn sounds, music and speech synthesis on or off. It also allows you to clear high score data.
  • Game Controls
    • The upper right corner of the game contains a pause button.
    • Movement and shooting:
      • You can control the ships movement and shooting via touch using the on screen buttons at the bottom left and right respectively.
      • To shoot with your keyboard use any of these keys: Control, X or L.
      • You can move the ship around the screen using either the arrow keys or W, A, S and D.
  • Strategy
    • Letters
      • You have to enter the letters into the word in the correct order from left to right.
      • If you are on the first letter of a word and destroy an asteroid with the second letter you lose a life.
    • Dying
      • You start the game with 10 spare ships.
      • If you shoot and destroy the wrong asteroid you lose a ship.
      • If you run into any asteroid you lose a ship.
    • Destroying asteroids
      • Asteroids require 5 shots to destroy.
        • You can hold the shoot button in to automatically repeatedly shoot.
        • If you accidentally shoot the wrong asteroid a few times it does not matter so long as you do not actually destroy it.
      • If you run into an asteroid with the next letter in the word you do get the letter, but you lose a ship.
    • General strategy
      • The game is not timed, so if the wrong asteroid is moving faster than the correct asteroid and makes a particular shot hard it can make sense to wait until the letter comes by again.
      • It generally makes sense to have your ship in the back third of the screen to give you greater time to react as new asteroids enter the screen.
      • You score points for completed words, with longer words being worth more points.

One comment on "Space Words Online Spelling Practice Game"

  • Joey says:

    The player must spell out a word (as shown in a picture) in the proper order. To spell a word, have your ship shoot down an asteroid with the right letter. You must also avoid hitting the other asteroids or shooting down the wrong letters. Use the X or L buttons to fire, and the arrow buttons to navigate.

    Your lives are represented by extra ships on the top left corner of the screen. Each time you hit an asteroid or shoot the wrong letter, you lose a life. The game is over when you run out of lives. The complexity of instructions are unusual for an educational game or a shooter. You must time your attacks to avoid wrong selections, all to spell a word right. Pretty tough for a kid’s game.
