Interesting game.

Phabetal is another one of those peculiar games in which you have to type a series of letters or words in order to progress. The game itself is rather simple in it's execution with letters on the keyboard controlling movement, confrontation and shopping.

Where this game seems to shine is it's mini games - with each action requiring a small typing puzzle or test it gradually increases in difficulty. For style I give 10 because not only is the game itself predominately letter based so are the menus, keeping immersion.

The graphics could have been slightly better but it makes little difference. Sound seemed to fit the game but more music choices would have been nice. I score 5 for violence mainly because of the battle scene graphics - It actually seemed worth destroying the letters as they approached just for the effect.

Interactivity would have been an instant 10 if not for some minor bugs in pressing buttons and not having the effects for no apparent reason. This caused me to loose life in the battle stages and get game over early.

Overall: 8. Another successful, albeit slightly buggy, addition to the rising typing genre.
