Type the words on the screen using the letter keys on your keyboard. Submit your word or delete what you've typed using 'enter' or 'space'.
TypeDown is without question one of the most difficult, frustrating and addictive typing games online. The game itself couldn't be simpler. The words you need to type appear at the bottom of the screen and, one by one, stack higher and higher. The object of the game is to type the words and make them disappear before the stack reaches the top of the screen. There are only twenty words in each level, but as the level number increases so does the speed. Words appear faster and faster and get more difficult to keep up with.
The graphics in TypeDown are basic and simple. You have a gray background with the words appearing in black lettering inside a little gray box outlined in blue. How it is possible that something as basic as this, something so decidedly un-fancy or flashy can be so engrossing. It's easy - the game is just that good.
Beginners just starting to get into typing games are going to have a hard time with this one. It isn't an easy game by any stretch of the imagination. Truth be told, even experienced players are going to have a hard time with this one. That's what makes this game so much fun, though. TypeDown is addictive in every sense of the word. Once you start playing you won't want to stop. You might get frustrated and swear you'll never play again, but before long, you will find yourself back at it again. This is an all around excellent game that proves you don't need to have flashy graphics and an elaborate story to grab a player and hold their attention to the very end.
