Proto Type

aka: Proto Type - "A Touch Typing Tutor", Prototype (1989)


This touch-typing tutorial includes a few games to help players practice when they're not taking lessons. The first, "Touch Typing Tests," simply involves typing sentences quickly. The second, "Tic-Tac-Toe," gives the player a Tic-Tac-Toe board. Each turn, he or she selects a square and is given a sentence to type. If the sentence is typed quickly enough and contains no errors, the square is won; otherwise, it is given to the computer. The final game, "ESCAPE," has the player running away from an enemy. A letter always appears in the box in front of the player. Typing this correctly sends the player forward, but making a mistake sends the player back. If the enemy catches the player before the end of the course is reached, all is lost. Each of these games features adjustable difficulty levels.
