How to play

Zombies will be coming from the left side and right side. You need to target them first and then kill them.

We must say that the following keys are very important in this game.

  1. Up arrow: You move upward
  2. Down arrow: You move downward
  3. Left arrow: You move to leftward to kill the zombies approaching from the left side
  4. Right arrow: You move to the rightward to kill the zombies approaching from the right side
At the beginning, you get an option to select whether you want to play in Easy, Medium or Hard mode. Once you select one of these, they give you another more specific choice about your typing text.

Typing is not the only skill you need. You must be efficient in managing the arrow keys. If you are inefficient in managing the arrow keys, you will eventually be frustrated and at a loss.

Review Summary

Price: Free

Story: You kill zombies that carry words with them. You type the words the zombies carry and they die.

Graphics: The graphics of this game are not very good and not very made. Mediocre is the perfect word to describe the graphics.

Environmental view: The environmental view is simple and easy. There is nothing amazing.

Design: The game was designed properly but there is a serious problem.

Animations: Animations are nothing special. Animations are also mediocre.

Sound effects: We did not like the sound effects.

Music: We did not like the background music too.

Load time: The game loaded fast in our Google Chrome browser.

Character details: The characters do perfectly whatever they are supposed to do.

Menu: (1) Hard, Medium and Easy (2) Hard Words, Easy Words, Top Row, Home Row and Bottom Row

Challenges: We think the biggest challenge is always changing the position of your player.

Progression (slow/fast): Your progression will be slow if you are a newbie typist.

Limitations: Typing practice paragraphs and average typing words per minute test are now possible.

Faults (bugs and glitches) / Weaknesses / Disappointments: We did not find any bugs or glitches but there is a big weakness in this game.

Was it an enjoyable experience? (Frustrating/interesting) The game was good but it was still an irritable experience.

Is it addictive and/or satisfying? It was not addictive and we could not be satisfied.

Replay value: It is worth replaying if you like it.

Do we recommend this game? No.

Review Details

Price: Free Typing Game

Story: Zombies will be approaching from both sides. They will carry a word with them and you must type that word fast to kill them. Is this enough? Not really! The player must turn his face to the zombie first. Then you must position yourself in the same line with that target zombie. Then you can start typing and killing the targeted zombie in this keyboard speed test game.

Graphics: Although the graphics are not very good, these are good enough for such a small game. Graphics will not bother you.

Environmental view: The game designer has used minimalist design ideas. There are only the things that make the game environment look good and clean.

Design: Although there are many good and right things, we think there is a big weakness in this game and that is the zombie speed.

Animations: Animations are good enough. You cannot complain. For such a small English typing speed test game, this much animation is okay.

Sound effects: Sound effects are too harsh. It is hard to tolerate these harsh sound effects for a long time.

Music: Music is also harsh. This is why we did not like it. Can the game developer himself/herself tolerate this kind of music for a long time?

Load time: This writing speed test loaded fast. It did not take more than 10 (ten) seconds in our Google Chrome browser. We are using a medium speed Internet connection.

Character details: There are no objections about character details because you can clearly understand their roles without any explanation.

Menu: There are two menus at the beginning of this English typing speed test game.

Left menu: What should be the speed of the zombies?
  • Hard: It is for the advanced learners
  • Medium: It is for intermediate level
  • Easy: It is for the beginners
Right menu: What do you want to type?
  • Hard Words
  • Easy Words
  • Top Row
  • Home Row
  • Bottom Row

Challenges: There are two specific challenges:

  • Positioning the player to the targeted zombie. Otherwise firing will not work.
  • Typing fast to kill all approaching zombies. If there are many zombies, you will be at a loss.

Progression (slow/fast): Progression depending on your typing speed. The faster you type, the shorter time it takes to complete the current level.

Limitations: In this keyboard typing test game, you cannot type letters or paragraphs.

Faults (bugs and glitches) / Weaknesses / Disappointments: To be honest, we were disappointed to play this game. There is a big weakness in this game. What is the weakness? The zombie speed. Is this a fast typing game? We selected the Easy mode but still too many zombies were approaching. This is unfair. We quickly lost interest in this game.

Was it an enjoyable experience? (Frustrating/interesting) It was interesting at the beginning but soon became irritating because of too many zombies. Does the game developer lack common sense?

Is it addictive and/or satisfying? Some people may find this game addictive although we did not find it addictive.

Replay value: If you are okay with some many approaching zombies, you will find replay value in this game.

Do we recommend this game? No. There are better fast typing games.
