Awsome!! so much fun!! This blows any other typing game. Thumbs upp.. (y)
Cool, simple game. Reminds of 'Typing of the Dead', an old Dreamcast game I used to play.
This is great. I love it!
Typing For Kids
This is kind of stolen from an old game called "typing of the dead" That game is way better though and it has a LAN option.
You're an idiot.
Great game, could teach kids to type
Fu you suck
This is cool
I got to level 16. I don't really think the difficulty is a problem, because if they made it harder the game would be too short for some people. Add an extreme difficulty or something.
Excellent! I played three games, and there was a dramatic learning curve. In game one, I got 25 words a minute. Second time, 30. On the third and last time, 35. I would like to see it expand. There is a main problem though. When I hit wrong letter when I'm starting a new word, I have to find that word that I've just started, and it takes a while to find it. Maybe there should be a little flash of light around the word whenever you start a new one??
I totally agree. That was the only part of the game that I couldn't appreciate.
Excellent concept, and excellent execution. Eat your heart out mavis beacon XD
on expert mode the words and letters overlap so that if you press P you might end up typing the wrong p and well that might just cost you, your game.
The only complaint I have with this game is sometimes the words overlap in the beginning so it's hard to see what I have to type :/
Great game though!
on normal mode, i can go on forever, most of the time, i just get bored and kill myself. but the brand new expert mode, its pretty fun. i got to wave 19... and im only 11
BTW, if you guys like this game, then you're gonna LOVE The Typing of the Dead.It's basically like House of the Dead except you kill zombies with words.Google "The Typing of the Dead download" to find it or go here http://www.mediafire.com/?d2c23cl1ip53063.
we had to play a game like this for school and this is 50000 times better best ive ever played im veary impressed that u can make learning how to type and spell words soooooo fun
Should be adapted into a musical version to learn the piano...
dead seams to pop up a lot
How is it possible to use foreign words and vocabulary??
In normal mode, I got to wave 29 with 52 words perminute and 97.2% accuracy. Fun!
That is really good. I'm not english, but i'm struggeling to reach level 25. A fantastic game. =)
Best typing game I have ever played! Those things that shoot out random letters are very annoying but are a good challenge.
honestly the best typing game in the world.
T___T IM BACK FOR MORE!!! BRING IT !!!
Quasi tutto quello che si punta accade è rivelata sorprendentemente preciso e che mi fa riflettere perché non aveva guardato in questa in questa luce in precedenza. Questo particolare ha fatto veramente accendere la luce per me, per quanto riguarda questa materia particolare va.
It gets hard at higher levels not so much because of the necessary speed, but because of the overlapping letters and trying to guess which of a dozen words it decided you were trying to type when you hit a certain letter.
Very nice game, Reminds me of the game mode "Type'o'Shooter" in Crimsonland.
ONLY 25 WORDS PER MIN.....
Thanks for great game!
Very well done. The impact library looks impressive. However, I agree with the other comments about using a different font because its hard to read sometimes.
It is wery cool stuff,...
@Liza: Yeah, very doubtful you got much past Wave 30 in normal mode, which would be around 45 minutes of play or less. Needing to quit after 20 minutes or so might've "felt like hours" but it's not. "There's a way to beat" 50 Waves in Expert Mode, but you wouldn't beat it.
lo termine el el primer modo =), re bueno el juego
Is there an end to this game? I kept going for what seemed like forever and ended up leaving after what felt like hours because I didn't have time to keep playing. If there's a way to beat it, I'll go again.
Love it, a very fun way to improve your typing skills. Full disclosure: working for the Intel AppUp developer program - interested in submitting this app? We are also having a challenge at the moment regarding WebApps: http://appdeveloper.intel.com/en-us/contest/developerchallenge
Really great game & idea! The only problem is that the letters are somtimes too small to recognize that fast (big resolution here).
hi i tryed its so cool but i experienced some trouble with the sound fx, after playing a while chrome crashes and i need to close it
You should add in some songs that are popular you konw like LMFAO, Black Eyed Peas...etc
Buenísimo (Great)... I got to level 25 and got bored (no audio around level 20). You should add difficulties like random capitalization, apart from density, add speed in higher levels. Nice job in design.
I shared this with all 3rd grade teachers in my school!!!
I would love to see a difficulty setting on this game. Other than that it's amazing.
Good game, really trains the brain. :D
Man this game helps. z type Amazing man I writ so fast now I type faster then my older brother lol.
this game is freaken awsomee no doubt!
this game hurts my brain SSSSOOOO MUCH!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I love this game, but i can't finish level 10
The game leverages a skill people already have. As such, it would make a lot of sense to let people select a difficulty level at the start. Preferably one expressed in wpm.
great game. app froze for 5 seconds and by the time it resumed they had replicated and multiplied in numbers.
Hi, this game is very good and I really enjoy playing it; however it slows down on picking up the user's input as the levels progress.
Well done! Increases in difficulty in nice increments. The difficulty of the words in very appropriate too. I would maybe make the score in the bottom corner a little bigger so typists realize that goal as well. Very fun! Maybe include a very difficult word as a bomb to explode the things close. Just an idea. Thanks again.
epic!... love it...
Absolutely a great game. With some further development in the score keeping department this would be a solid learning tool for children in school and or to help adults/young adults with their typing skills
Fun game! Thanks!
fun game, remove the facebook shit,
Humans can recognize fonts that have glyphs better than block style fonts (fact). It would make the letters easier to identify and prevent confusion in deciphering between "i" and "l" and "t" and "f". It would also be cool if the target (not the letters) blinked when you are shooting it, especially when things get busy on higher levels. Also, it would be helpful if the word you were shooting came to the foreground when targets overlap... nice game.
Could be more interesting if you had the ability to start at later levels, as opposed to the snail's pace of the early ones.
how bout a stat recording how many words per minuted we've typed.
almost perfect, but it gets confusing if you miss a letter, or hit a letter by mistake and not realize what word you're meant to type. Perhaps the word you've selected could appear larger at the top of the screen to prevent this.
It's a pretty fun game, shame it tries to ambush you into f*c*book.com with the claim of a newer version......
I like the idea of individual letters as missiles that have to be countered, and the whole presentation is really well done. I would like to see some way of choosing which enemy to focus on (in case a typo locks me onto a different enemy) and maybe some way of enforcing accuracy. Maybe you could also show which letter was typed if it's the wrong one, but that's not a huge deal. It's still really addicting.
Agree on the spacebar...if you hit spacebar it cancels the current word and you can start again. The penalty for a mistake then would be a little worse ... you'd have to start a word fresh, and it would also help with getting lost at the higher levels.
I don't think it stressed accuracy enough. Very fun, but as long as I was fast, I could make many mistakes, which would not translate to good typing.
You should find a way to optimize this game for those at the higher WPM percentiles. It would skip over some letters when you do 150+ WPM. But overall, very fun game.
I love this. I haven't tried playing with friends on Facebook yet, but I like how that option's available.
Add functionality that the spacebar pulls you out of a word you're trying to type. main problem was thinking i was done with a word and not being (my bad, admittedly) but at level 35+ it got hard to see where the word was on screen, a spacebar word cancellation would help get those little ones that were creeping up on me.
Przecież jesteś Polakiem :D.
Please add polish language.
A different font would be good. I will admit, from design standpoint everything ties in nicely. But the font is just a tad hard to distinguish letters sometimes.
i love a great challenge!
Well, I used one hand until level 25, then after I opened my eyes I changed to the other hand while eating lunch and making some phone calls. My girl friend said that I shouldn't use my hands, I should use....didn't quite catch what she said I should use. But anyway, after level 105 I managed to make it go much fast by hacking into the program with my other hand on another computer. My girlfriend said I should have used...didn't quite catch what she said...on the other computer instead of my other hand. The sound went off pretty early, after the first hour and a half, but I managed to go upstairs and put some music on and get back to my computer before the letters got to the bottom. Made a cup of tea on the way back as well. Bad and evil words started falling after 3 hours and I think it may have made me write a whole horror story with a bad ending which really freaked me out, but I got through it. But I think it started playing with my mind cause when I finished after using up all the electric I went nuts when I saw the cat cause I thought it was going to eat me. It was the story it made me write, and the way it did it made me feel I was one of the characters in it. And so I killed the cat. My girlfriend was really mad then. I didn't even touch the cat with my hands... This really happened. If you don't believe me you can ask my ex-girlfriend or I can send you a bit of cat. So there.
... very imaginative.
This looks amazing, and I agree that adding a definition option would be great. But really an app on facebook? Let me know when you want to sell it as a program.
You could use a GRE dictionary with meanings to improve vocab as well.
I second this. I would pay for it even.
Hey, great game, perfect for killing time at work since it's all just typing! It'd be awesome if there was a pause button implemented if there isn't already.
pause = escape button
Add the ability to use custom dictionaries and you would have a fantastic education tool...
Oh gosh yes. This would be prime material for boys at the 12-13 age level if the words could be toned down a bit.
Why would the words need to be toned down for boys aged 12-13?
And it could be toned up for those of us with twisted minds!
Glitched on level 5. The music stopped and no matter what I typed it wouldn't shoot.
Very fun! Got to level 31 before I got bored. Music and sound stopped playing suddenly for me after about level 22, I think. If the object doing the shooting is going to be stationary, I think it should be something else besides a ship. A cannon on a planet, or something similar. I kept getting the urge to move the ship around.
Very good. This will help me a lot with my typing speed. it would be good to implement the space bar in there somehow. maybe have a ship that shoots spaces? I can only get up to about level 13
Nice work. If you were to think more closely about the words this could easily become a great typing tutor. It just need to focus on finget positions.
37508, 96.8%. Went to level 100, then stopped, because my fingers were killing me.
Are you a robot?
I finally see how much I actually have to look at the keyboard when typing single letter. Words are easy, but not letters for some reason.
Loved the game! A words-per-minute report would be great too!
can we get this full screen
Awesome! I'm totally going to give this to my ESL students. My suggestions however: it gets a little confusing when I type something and I miss a letter, then I can't find out what the letter is because the word is behind the other words on the screen. Next, sometimes I start typing a word, but I accidentally hit the wrong letter, then I have to spend a lot of time looking to see what word it was that I accidentally started typing. A simple fix to this would be to change th e word your typing color from orange (gets lost among the ships when there's a lot on the screen) to green or something. Also I would like to use this to learn myself, so I would love a version where I could learn new words. Maybe a version where it would log all the words you've shot so you can find the definition later. This could even be advanced so that other users can enter their own words. To make sure they're spelled correctly, they could be required to link to a dictionary of it. Great game, great concept, and if you're ever looking for someone to make music on a project in the future (though it looks like you've found someone good) shoot me an email. I would love to be involved in a project that combines fun, skill, and learning like this. Sorry for the wall, but the form wouldn't let me submit with spaces between paragraphs? :-/
Great game. You should consider adding different languages. (Personally, I'd like to see Korean so I can practice typing that).
i'm Korean and speak Korean like medium but still catching on KOREANS RULE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Effin great game!
sweet i got upto level 94, accuracy 94.5%, score 26601 :) very good game. great for practising speed typing.
Wow, this brings back memories. There was a game like this back on the first Commodore PET 2001. Words would fall from the top of the screen faster and faster and you had to type them before they hit the bottom. I learned how to type 80 WPM before I was 11. Sadly, it wasn't using the "approve" method, so when I took Typing in HS, the teacher was always docking points because I don't use the home-line. Not to mention I could out type her doing so :)
The sound cut off at around 30+
Uses American spelling, hard to play for other dialects.
Well, you should make your own then. I mean with an attitude like that, you must be a god at making something like this.
What attitude? He was just making a suggestion. Being Canadian I have the same problem with words like colour and color.
amazing game. needs a pause tho
it has a pause, says so right at the title screen
I love tits and butts
takes too long to get hard. I'm too much of a nerd.
What does being a nerd have to do with the time it takes to get an erection?
Good sir, I admire you for this comment. You are a gentlemen and a scholar.
Score: 2321, Level 23, Accuracy 89.3
Great game. I would like to see, though, a pause option between the waves!
LOL! Didn't notice the text before i started the game: "ESC: Menu/Pause".
At times, when I was almost losing, it seemed like it was giving me more negative words (isolated, regret, failure, etc) and then when I was winning I was notice positive words more (driven, amused, etc). Pretty sure that was just occasionally syncing up, but it would be an interesting feature.
Good game, but takes too long to get hard.
that's where the practice comes into play.
thats what she said
Wave 53 or so the ships overlapped and I could no longer see the word I was working on, and the large ships that shoot random letters got me. Also the sound cut out and actually made it harder.
that's what she said!
Yes, it is.
This would be an amazing way to teach spelling and vocab to kids, especially in ESL
good game, needs to punish typos (maybe gun freezes for a period, or you limit ammo?)
Great Game! Would be better if the typeface was more legible. Lots of times l's t's f's and j's got hard to read
+1! Definitely got tripped up on the l/t/i/j/f confusion too. Ship overlap got me too. Great game though
So awesome. I wish the game made you press the space bar after each word, typing words continuously without using the space bar felt wrong. Does anybody know of a game that punishes the player for spelling the word wrong?
I like boobs
As do I, as do we all.
the word you are typing sometimes gets clustered and then hidden behind another. and so if you didnt actually catch what the word you were typing was. say the word 'suddenly' pops up and you hit 's'. if it is right below another word it will bounce up and be hidden behind the other word. otherwise this is very creative.
Try minkag bonsues if you can put theetgor senctnees and wrods tatt hvae seinpllg lkie tihs.
I LOVE THIS GAME. It is so addicting. I got to level 50 with 10k and some odd points. I want to keep playing, but I have work to do. My god this game is awesome.
Please add "Press Space to Play Next Round" between rounds. My hands got tired at lvl 23 so I just quit. Needs a rest break between rounds. Otherwise, for a good typist, it is an endurance game rather than an accuracy game.
Just press the escape button for pause.
Game is sickkk. The music stopped playing around level 25, i enjoyed it. You should make it loop. The font could use a LITTLE bit more spacing, the T's, look like J's. The BIGGEST thing I wanted, was the WPM. make moar!
I couldn't figure out how to play. Instructions?
I downloaded a pdf of the instructions. It only had once chapter though. Not very extensive. All it said was...."Type the words idiot".
I'd love to have this in Russian, German, and Arabic. It would be a great way to supplement a foreign language course.
I enjoyed it. Got to level 54, 9,264 points. It started getting repetitive after awhile; you should add capitalization, numbers and symbols to the higher levels to keep it fresh as the game progresses.
lo mejor y mas entretenido que eh probado... buenicimo..
You have to include a submit score to leaderboard. This is too good. I just showed it to someone at work and they scored 3487.
Very nice, I recommend you try this, you wont be disappointed. by the time you reach level 5 it really starts to test your processing skills etc. This could lead to something big and extremely popular. I suggest that this game could and should be purchased by the Makers of Scrabble they could use the concept for there own product/
good game. final score 204530!
gr8 work & really funny ,)
That one is awesome. And it really useful for blind typing
its....awasome gaming xperiance in html5........truley liked...it........HATS OFF TO....creator....Mr.Dominic Szablewski
nice game man...
This is similar to Letter Invaders, part of the Typing Tutor app from years and years ago. It improve both speed and accuracy dramatically, very quickly. Great to see it back for the next generation.
Music cut out on me too. One suggestion: Force the player to retype misspelled words, or at least offer the option to.
This is copied from Vocaboly-the game.
I'm using this to improve my dvorak. So helpful, thanks
A very good game. Maybe there should be difficulty levels rather than making the whole thing more difficult - although I did find it quite easy. I only realised that the larger ones spawned letters quite late on in the game, but if this was to be used in an educational fashion I don't think that the single letters would be popular. A great game, although it feels very difficult to type without spaces!! :)
Too easy, I got bored. 5948 at level 40, accuracy 93% accuracy.
Could easily be expended into a typing skills game, like the ones on the BBC micros when I was a kid. Only updated graphics...

This game gets alot easier when you figure out that if you type fast you only have to type half of the word to get a kill

Adictive! 4738 level 28 sin hablar ingles!!!
Fun and simple. I wish there were some power-ups. And the difficulty curve, for me at least, was really slow. I was defeating every wave in a few seconds up until about 25. It wasn't til about 35 it was a challenge at all.

Fun and great. Great game to improve on your typing skills. Pretty impressed with the ui elements as well.
intense! my score- 3008.fun!
intense! my score- 3008. lots of fun :)
Wow, that was intense. my score- 3008. lots of fun :)
Needs a way to skip into the game. Played with one hand until level 12, where I stopped out of boredom.
Really this game very entertaining and is very simple. regards!
I got to level 27 and gave up lol. The waves are irritating! But challenging, which is what the game needs.
Very well done, but it needs to get harder faster.
Very nice! Sound dropped out around level 16 for me, though.
nice 2 meet u
on openSuse 11.04 it caused sound driver to go made
he made me go out of my habits(usually I dont rate )but this is so good , I would do anything to reward him/her
It's great thing! I love it!
Nice, though it raisese slowly, so you don't want to play it a second time.. You should make levels clearly harder!
Level 20, im happy - wonderful game!
then put a check if the words read, take a deep English course ...
The game's good, but every successive wave should increase in difficulty at a higher rate. I always get tired of the actual game and quit instead of getting destroyed.
level 16 yeah, good game.
This is great i wish it would show what gwam im typing at... shouldnt be too hard every 5 chars=one word time it and make an average speed
Great Idea. Thanks for sharing!
tremendously entertaining and a nice simple concept. Love it
is better this type of games than FLASH games.....
ja już wszystko rozumiem!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
HTML5 for the win, sick game.
cool game BUT MAKE IT HARDER!!!!
Very nice! Somewhere after level 40, though, the whole play area rotated a bunch and got squished into the corner...hard to describe, but definitely made it unplayable.
it's a good theam and atterative look.
fantastic!! specially upper level 15
Level 11 and still not challenging. Would be nice to see the WPM and accuracy. Typershark still rules.
it´s a big game!!! thank you!!
make different enemy's and leader board and multilayer. Best typing game EVER.
Good, but for me, the music chops when shooting. And I do believe the collision with the shots could be improved. Overall though, i found this game to be very nice, and if there were difficulty modes, this could become highly addictive!
Best typing game I've ever played. Well done. I've gone out of my way to rate you (I normally don't bother) I'm even considering buying the Impact engine just to reward the work you are doing.
Great game! Makes typing fun! :)
I like this Z type.
I've designed a database to allow mutable datatypes for hundreds of millions of records... Z-Type is much more of an achievement - fantastic. I'll recommend it on.
Simple and very elegant. Great job.
cool,this is really a good game
а другие языки будут? Игра просто супер!
I agree, we need different languages, this could be a great language learning tool!
It's great, but occasionally the computer cheats and hides a word you've started completely hidden beneath another word = (
type the top word first then :)
Yes that is quite painful :p but when it does happen FORGET YOUR ACCURACY AND HIT EVERY KEY!!!
Cool!!! Nice game
Brilliant! I'd type more, but my hands hurt now...
nice game :]
Actually Mavis Beacon has a exercise like this. This is not this concepts first rodeo.
highly addictive - just needs to get harder faster....
OMG! Genius :O~
Very nice addictive game! Just hit level 65....with an accuracy of 95.4 %....14'688 points
Hmm. Music cut out somewhere around wave 18, but a very awesome and addicting game.
Had a bit of fun playing this, unfortunately, I think I type too fast at the beginning so lots of waiting :-)
Amazing typing game.
woohoo awesome game! just cleared lvl 61 but then I lost..accuracy 93.1.. it's so hard to type after 40 mins of playing, Oh btw final score 011361
This game has horrible collision checking. 3/5 stars.
lol, you mean.. "ffs I died, I'll blame the collision code"
ooo yea addictive but absolutely great!!! Congratulation Dominik!
Muito show! Que tal uma verçao para celular!
my loading bar stops at near finish. I cant open the game even after empty all my privay data
I l-l-l-l-l-like it, The music is also very good :-)
Pleases reseave me.
VERY very cool!
Really great though already too slow for me =)
Absolutely amazing game. Would like to see some high scores afterwards
Kurza twarz! Chrome się zawiesił O.o
Best typing game I have ever played!
Awesome, very well done.
ghgfymmmzsd iiiasdzxc awew w34qe 34 sersd edc
awsome!! so much fun!! this blows any other typing game I've ever played straiggt out of the water!! Would love more stats at the end the game, like words per min, either per round or entire game, most missed letter, ect ect.
Absolutely awesome! It would be fun to see a bit more statistics once the game has finished and perhaps the ability to save your high score :) I'll be playing this for quite a bit, even though I'm a speed typer.
Upon installing Google Chrome beta, this game works great without crashing. Again, great typing game! I'll be sure to show it to some of my friends who may need some practice typing.
Great game. Definitely the most addicting typing game I've ever played. The only problem I'm having is that it crashes whenever I start getting the bigger ships around round 13 :\
One of the best typing games/programs I ever seen, awesome!
Awesome. The variation in the ships is great too. Level 15+ has the big ships that do something special... great game.
great game to improve typing skills
this is better than most typing programs. fun and helpful :)
Awsome game! I got 92.8% accuracy!
good idea.. need several levels of difficulty because it is a bit too simple, and on a big screen in high resolution words are way too small, not easy to read them
I want this application source.
Amazing, really fun. This should be used for people who are trying to get their typing better.
Fantastic! A great idea superbly implemented. Just feels so slick and well made. Kudos to the author!
6029 :D Starts to be challenging after wave 35, maybe you can adjust the game to increase difficulty a bit faster between levels ?
Very Nice ^^
Very cool game....I liked it.
wonderful i got until level 8
Very sweet game, my score was over 4k :)
Crashed Chrome on this computer, I think that's a good sign? But it was fun while it lasted :D
this is excellent fun. definitely work on making new modes to flesh out the game.
Cool concept, excellent execution!
Anyway to make this fullscreen??
Superb, good work. can implement in many organization for testing accuracy and speed of typing wherein required. fun + test = Z-Type.
This could be used to improve typing skills... Good work.
First and awesome.
Addicitve and quite nerd.
Sweet typing game! Make this into a full suite and you could blow Mavis Beacon out of the water. 1484!
ya you are right man
