I assume the music is original. It's certainly nice.

Audio feedback on correct/wrong answers would be good. Also, more elaborate visuals might have added to it, as would more words and possibly phrases.

Other than that, it's a solid game, and I actually felt like playing again. Nice.

Waiting for the Windows exe (Placeholder comment)

The music was quite nice. The fact that it has to be launched in a shell for the highscore should be mentioned in a readme or something.

PsySal says ...

Excellent job, a very nice little typing game. Great music, I'd love a Bwoop sound effect each time I get a word correct. Awesome that you have an online hall of fame, that's a great feature to manage to implement in 48H.

I have always had a thing for typing games so I gave this one a good go. Was a little boring but I did enjoy the colors you used and the wall of doom. I ran into a problem though during the later levels when some words started appearing up top that started with similar letters to words that were still near the bottom. It started fighting over focus and it got me killed. Like the words you picked to type as well. Wasn't too hard but was good to zone out to and type.

Covenant says ...

Interesting game, really... I found it quite challenging... :)

Yay, top 3! Game is fun, nice touch with the leaderboard. First few runs I was trying to type quickly, didn't do well, but then I noticed the multiplier and slowed down.

I feel like perhaps the game was missing double key presses at times... it was saying messed up on a lot of double letters. I wish I could see what letters I was actually pressing so I could see why I was getting typos.

Deepflame says ...

No windows executable.

agj says ...

Too bad about py2exe...

greencow says ...

Typo of Doom

Type faster to avoid that advancing wall of doom! You might get to the Hall of Fame, if you don’t make a Typo of Doom.

Download Python source code version

(I might add Win32 binary version later)

I can’t get py2exe to work with Pygame font (or mixer) module. If anyone knows how to do this, let me know.

My first official Ludum Dare. I decided to make a typing game. I use Python and Pygame.

Typo of Doom v0.5 (Python sources)

It’s simple and the game is already working well. But now I’m out of ideas. Should I just polish the game or should I add something new to make the game more interesting?
