Issues

  • It's a little tricky to exit this game. In Windows, you would press Alt + F4. However, if you press this in KDE, it does nothing because it's bound to close-window in the KDE shortcuts. However, it will work if you unbind that key combination from KDE. Not sure how this works on other window handlers. If you don't want to unbind the Alt + F4 shortcut, just run the game in a window and it will work fine. If you do run the game in a window, don't forget that you can use Ctrl + Alt + +/- to change the screen's resolution to match that of the game and simulate fullscreen.

Notes

  • The demo pops up a message box in what I believe to be intended as japanese or chinese. Just press Enter ↵ and the game should start up. The rest of the game is in english.
  • The patch fixes problems with the ATI Rage Mobility. I think it's quite useless since ATI linux drivers are crap. But i'm interested in the experiences of someone that has such a card.

Description

Great game to learn how to touch type and train how to type faster. It's based on House of the Dead, only you do not shoot with a gun or mouse, instead the zombies will have words appear over them, if you type them, they will die. Has a tutorial mode too.
