11/10 ign - Worthy of Game of the Year.


Lil J approves this game 👌👌


This game changed my life.

Developer

Haha best review hands down! Thanks a bunch, glad you enjoyed the game!

I love typing games like this! I'd really like some sort of feedback through maybe a hit marker sort of sound when you hit the right key of each word. I think the speed they come at you is pretty spot on to make it a challenge through the levels!

Developer

Ay thanks for playing our game, glad you liked it! A hit marker sound is genius completely didn't think about that! 

Submitted(+1)

Very fun game! It took me a round to figure out it was a typing game, but WOW that got difficult very fast very quickly! The super zombie elves with two words are HECK! Never thought I would be so focused on typing fast! 

This would be a fun type of game to reskin in other ways as an educational tool as well!

Developer(+1)

Yeah for sure, its a great game to practice typing on. Our programmer is a fast type-r so he's made the difficulty curve way too high naturally. Nonetheless I'm really happy you enjoyed our game!

Fun stuff, i like the pixel art and it's pretty challenging

Developer

Thanks a bunch, I really enjoyed creating the artwork for the game ^-^

Submitted(+2)

Very Fun! Don't think I've ever typed so fast in my life xD

Developer

Haha, we wanted to make a sweaty, fast paced game. I think we over did it xD Glad you enjoyed it!

Submitted(+1)

Great fun! Insanely hard if your fingers are giant sausages like mine xD

Developer

Haha, I'm glad you enjoyed the game regardless, we will be updating it to lower the difficulty because right now its overkill xD

Submitted(+1)

The moment when your typing for your life as 10 zombies approach and you just manage to churn out enough words to get through, thats a great feeling. Nice challenge yet simple and the art is readable and cute. Nice!

Developer

Haha that feeling is too true! I'm really happy you enjoyed the game, it was certainly fun making it too =D

Wave 4 got me!  This was good!  Add a few lives so you don't only get one chance...maybe a health meter!  Yeah, this is great for 48-hours, and this game has potential in general.

Developer(+1)

Thanks dude! Really glad you enjoyed it. We are thinking of adjusting the difficulty curve and having lives is a great idea! We are definitely thinking of polishing it up and releasing an update for it relatively soon =D

A fun Christmas/Yog take on the typing genre! Nice work! Perhaps the music could speed up slightly with each level?

Please check out my team's game if you get a chance!

very thanks!

I love typing challenges and this was a lot of fun! I was pleasantly surprised when I opened this up. Well done! Wave 5 was a real killer though

Developer(+1)

Oh dang! You got to wave 5, thats impressive because the difficulty curve is insane. Really happy you enjoyed it and thanks for the kind words! 

Submitted(+2)

cool little game, well done! Not the kind of thing you'd usually expect to see for a jam and a nice change of pace. Difficulty curve was a bit steep as others have said tho :P

Developer

Thanks for the kind words! I completely agree with you, the difficulty will be changed in an update later on =P

(+2)

Nice graphics and straightforward gameplay, will say there is a big difficulty curve when it introduces longer words and more enemies at the same time between waves 1 and 2.

Developer

Thanks for the feedback! Yeah without a doubt the difficulty curve is wayy too high. We are going to update the game later to tweak the difficulty as there is 10 waves but the furthest anyone has gone is wave 5. Nonetheless, thank you for enjoying out game! =D

Nice game, good concept. Good Job. If i were to continuously play this game, then i can master my typing skills :P 

Developer(+1)

Awesomee! Glad you enjoyed it. You can play a game and also learn how to type faster. I see this as an absolute win!

Submitted(+2)

solid gameplay, but too hard for mee. Nice job.

Developer

Thank you! We'll update the game soon-ish to adjust the difficulty curve. Glad you enjoyed the game!

Submitted(+2)

Great game, I like the larger zombies makes it a bit more interesting and definitely harder!

Developer

There is a third zombie later in the game that walks backwards and you need to type the word backwards to defeat it. Although we need to adjust the difficulty curve first haha. Thanks for the nice words! :D

Submitted(+1)

Wow yeah I lost before seeing that guy :p
