Time Attack (BETA)

This guide will explain what the Time Attack mode is and how to use it. 

Combine writing prowess with a little bit of luck, and you get Skritter's new Time Attack mode. Compete with other Skritter users to see if you've got what it takes to make it onto the top 25! Since this is a beta feature, we will likely be resetting the leaderboard from time to time. Take screenshots of your scores to remember them by! 

How It Works

Each session randomly selects 20 items from decklists. The objective is simple-- write characters as fast as you can, and see your time after each attempt. Each deck shows your top times and the top 25 high scores (Chinese high scores are split between Simplified and Traditional character styles). There are no penalties for stroke mistakes or incorrect characters, but they will slow you down! Gestures and button taps, however, do come with a time penalty.

  • Hint button (eye) +5 seconds
  • Teaching Mode (gesture) +10 seconds

Not satisfied with your results? No problem. Just try again. Good luck, and happy time attacking!


Time Attack is a new beta feature. Scores will be reset from time to time as we make improvements. Sorry in advance, and we hope you have fun! Please email us with any feedback you might have, or start/join a conversation on the forum for more collaboration. Happy skrittering!
