The Typing of the Dead is an arcade horror game
released in 2000 by Sega, that follows the story of another popular game, House of the Dead 2
. The gameplay is based on typing letters, words, or sentences , in order to kill zombies very fast. This concept was new to me, because I haven't encountered it before, since I was accustomed to defeat enemies by using the mouse
, and the shooting system. Well, in Typing of Dead, your weapon is the keyboard
, and this is more challening and inventive. So, for those that would like to develop their ability of typing, this is a perfect educational choice
, that makes your learning very entertaining. I don't know why this game made me think of efficient ways to determine children to write their homework or study more. What if there were actually zombies scaring children for educational purposes only, of course? Haha! The graphics are looking good, recreating an almost apocalyptic world, the visual effects are realistic, and the whole gameplay is addictive, fun, unique! You can play in arcade mode or in original mode, and you will have the possibility to discover new options. Each typing challenge
will test your speed and precision, and if you pass them correctly, new modes will be unlocked. Type for your life in an innovative way!
