Monster Typing

There's a new free game in the App store called Monster Typing. Letters fly across the screen, and typing the corresponding letter shoots down the letter. It's a simple game, but the graphics are stylized (reminds me of patapon) and the gameplay seems pretty challenging. Recommended download...did I mention it's free?

How long, do you think, until this game gets pulled by PATAPON developers?

If it were that easy (referencing art style similarities only) rolando never would have been made (loco roco)

Just upgraded to the 3GS from the original. Super excited to play some of the more intense games.

It's pretty fun for a typing tutor. The difficulty ramps up fast though (with upper case, numbers, and special characters at level 5) so I can't imagine getting very far into the game without some serious practice.

Well my bad too. I kinda thought t was funny but after looking at my post I definately didn't show it. Yuck I look way too serious.

I've tried out this game and reached level 5. Then I decided to quit playing it.

So far I haven't found any bug but I really don't like typing in portrait mode. There's no any awards/achievements and the graphic is really a Patapon ripoff!

I would rather try other typing tutor app such as Idle Hands instead of this one. Totally dissapoint me in the sense of originality.

May not be original, but heck - even some of the ones before this aren't original. I remember these types of games when I was first learning keyboarding in the 90's. Originality is impossible to find these days. An identical rip-off is a different story, but to say something isn't original doesn't mean much in my eyes.

I played up to level 5 and actually enjoyed it, the game is pretty fun, which surprised me.

Only quirk I came across was the walking aliens, I would start typing the word for the one in front, but oddly it started on the alien 2-3 behind him (with the same beginning letter) and of course the rest of the word was partly covered by the ones around it.

If they added landscape detection it would be nice, but really it's not as realistic, as many of the typing apps I personally use are only in portrait mode. Kind of pointless to get more accustomed to landscape typing if you mainly use portrait, but this is just my own opinion and based on apps I use. Results may vary. ^ ^
