Typomagia – I’m going to have to have some WORDS with you!

Friday, February 27th, 2009

Today I’m going to review Typomagia! The magic typing game! By Sol aka Jari Komppa.


Typomagia is a game of typing and magic!  Okay, okay, it’s just a typing game (like word invaders if you remember typing tutor).  There are two modes of play a “quick” game with the computer, or story mode.  In both modes you have several categories of word lists.  Chemistry, cities, colors, common, lands, orchids, programming.  I chose common, simply because I wanted to play the general case.  If you start the quick game first, it sort of gives you an idea of what you’re in for on story mode.

“There are people among us who call themselves Manipulators. These Manipulators can take control of your mind and use you. They are a threat to us; we must get rid of them at once! Be alert! Do not trust anybody!” This is the blurb offof the Virtanen Games website for their, somewhat odd, platformer called “The Manipulator“.

If you’ve ever wondered what it’s like to be a flying monkey, then look no further than Zoomaroom by 4Bros. Zoomaroom is a cute little physics based platformer for XBox Live Community Games on the XBox 360. You’re a monkey who’s trying to get to the exit. You also want to collect 5 coins in each room, to unlock more rooms. The game also has a level editor that you can share with people on xbox live.
