First in 4 yeaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaars!!!!!

Dude, youre in a magazine!

Hey man, I dont know if you know but your game is in a Dutch game magazine.
Its one of 5 free downloadable games on the page, I thought Id let you know in case you didnt. :)
All the best.

RetroArts responds:

I am? Nice :) Thanks for telling me.


One of the best typing games ever IMO. Loved the music and the graphics. btw is there something wrong with the top scores table? All of them say DKZ or something with 0 kills... Except for mine, but that's the only one that's different.

RetroArts responds:

The game only features a local highscore table. That's why only your score is showing.

I liked it but....

How do you use fire or lightening or water? I keep dying when I need to use it
The in-game manual could use some work. Perhaps telling us the controls and what they do:
In-Game: Esc - ends game, Space - funky freezey thing when power bar is full, Enter - no clue, but it uses up the power bar
Out of game: M - manual, S - high scores, T - title screen

I'm going to keep trying things out cause it's a fun game, but it's annoying to test keys out

This is very good.

Its educative in some way, also a nice way to train blind typing in a fun and entertaining way. I liked the retro japanese style. Really nice style. I hope I'll see more of these in the future.
