Seems to be very similiar to "Typing Of The Dead" on the PC, besides the setting of course. Does look cute though, i might pick it up this evening.

Game Impressions

Great game, actually significantly better than I expected. (And I expected it to be pretty good.) Only criticism so far: the game is still too challenging on "easy" difficulty, putting it well out of reach of kids and anyone not accustomed to the virtual keyboard. A significantly easier mode, or "Kid Mode" would be a great addition.

Great game, easily the best texting game in the App Store. This one does deserve more attention, folks. Try it, had a lot of fun with it. Would love to see additional characters as an IAP.
