Learn typing with the famous plumber and his team!
This is actually a pretty innovative and interesting idea to teach people typing
- type while playing a game! This is a neat little program for people who are yet to familiarize with the computer keyboard and need to know where is which key. As Mario (or an other Mario character) goes on a path from a typical Super Mario game
, the blocks above his head are marked with a letter and you must press that letter for Mario to jump and get the block. Bellow the screen on a separate panel are two gloved hands that show you exactly where on the keyboad you must press for the specific letter and with which finger. The game is suited for various levels of difficulty, so you can try the game if you are a person who's never seen a keyboard or a typist in an office. The game is made in the typical Mario design, with the famous turtles and brick setting, and he game is followed with appropriate cute sound effects. This game is especially good for children
who are still learning to use the computer, because this is a fun and interesting way of learning. Like in the game Mavis Beacon Teaches Typing
, this is a perfect combination of fun and education
and I think it's really a splendid idea and a fun game.

Classic game I loved
I really liked this game. I think its definetely worth downloading. I actually used this program when it was still relativly young back in 1998. I was in 7th grade at the time and it made learning to type really fun. Im' a gamer at heart so the fact that it was based on a classic game. I loved made it even more enjoyable while still getting its job done.
