All done...

Press <space> to start
Then type whatever appears at the top
Press enter after you finish a line
If you get it right then a vogon will be bored and go away
There are many vogons and they have many poems
Good luck saving the Earth!

I got less ambitious with this due to lack of time... Was going to have a mini-economy... but fundamentally it wouldn't have been more fun than just typing as fast as you can... so that's what we get !

Thank you for playing.

Any feedback, comments or bug reports welcome.
Source code available by request to (or do I have to post it here ? email and let me know!!)

I like typing games. Not sure what i'm doing wrong though. It keeps asking me to write 'random' over and over after the first text.

@DaanVanYperen - you were not doing anything wrong... I just hadn't equipped it with a poetry generator.
That is now fixed... I think the game is done. See if you can get to level 13 (vogons all around earth).... Earth WILL be destroyed!!

zlatwarked can be surprisingly difficult to type.

I played it for about 15 minutes and it quit generating words for me to type. :( I still had 9 Diversity left. The earth is still spinning so I guess I won?

@GaTechGrad that's some impressive typing and concentration. Yes I didn't have time to add a win screen... couldn't get that far myself - congrats to you!!
